Bette Davis Eyes

This weekend TCM went Bette Davis crazy. In between the marathon of her movies including Burnt Offerings and The Scapegoat, the station aired this interview with Dick Cavett. It's great because it is an in depth talk with the superstar, unlike a lot of the surface scripted stuff we see these days. Le sigh. I dont mean to get negative, it's just sometimes I wish certain elements of the past would re-appear :)
If you have a chance, watch this whole interview. What an amazing woman!

It's Shark Week & We Love Sharks!

Happy Sunday

For a dreamy Sunday, here is something I found via The English Muse. Gemma Booth, videographer, created this short film, Treasure Box, for her exhibition. I'm so in love.

There is no denying Zooey is fabulous. She hit it right on the nose when she said her own style is "... feminine, even flirtatious." It's a feeling she creates- a good vibe, maybe?- that certainly strikes a cord with me and my friends, and we pull a lot of inspiration from her life as we perceive it. I love this Instyle spread, because it is like a romantic safari picnic. My favorite image is Zooey with the peach.

I stumbled upon INVEN.TORY yesterday in SoHo. This is a great "outlet" type boutique that carries overstock from designers like Pegleg, Shipley & Halmos, and Cheap Monday in a highly focused, highly curated setting. The relatively new boutique, opened in March of this year, has an added perk: weekly in store events/ parties to celebrate the welcoming of new brands, among other reasons. I was swooning over the shoes and the carefully selected vintage section in the back, instantaneously declaring INVEN.TORY my new favorite store. Below some inventory (pardon the pun!)- it's safe to say I want it all.
