I was on the lookout for plates and I eyed these immediately and was also excited about the price! I got eight total, 4 of each for $3!

Virginia Johnson

While at Barney's today I came across some of Virginia Johnson's new shawls. I am a big fan of her work so I came home and checked out her website again to see what else was new. I really love her Fall 08 lookbook. It is really inspiring.

Wardrobe Remix August 27th 2008

I had lunch at Barney's today with my new bosses. I start my new job on Tuesday! Very excited! I wore:

Dress - Brooklyn Industries
belt- was my mothers
shoes- aerosoles (shhh!) via housing works in downtown brooklyn

The highlight of my day was coming home on the F and guess who sat down next to me?!


Elizabeth Sweetheart one of the five new yorkers interviewed in NY Mag about their single color wardrobe The article is here if you missed it I wish that I had remembered that she was a fabric designer because I would have said something, but anyways she totally made my day!

Back from NH

I got back from New Hampshire yesterday. I feel like whenever I have been going back I always do the same things. This photo basically sums up how I spent my Sunday. Two words. FLEA MARKET

The infamous flea market that I always talk about

This flea market is out of control and I am sorry but the flea markets here in NYC don't stand a chance in comparison to the ones in NH. I came out after three hours and only spending $6 and came out with a vintage silk scarf, two linen table clothes, a few yards of really fun vintage fabric, the cutest painting that I am putting in my kitchen tomorrow, 6 cloth napkins with a great bamboo print in chartreuse (one of my favorite colors!) and a full bottle of avon perfume in a peacock shaped bottle! RIDICULOUS!!

Local farm near my dads house

Besides the flea market I made sure to stop at the local farms/ice cream stands and stock up on some fresh veggies that I made myself and my dad dinner with, cider donuts, and homemade pumpkin ice cream. yummmmy

I have been on the lookout for a new purse for a while now since I have loved mine so much that the straps are starting to fray. I am a one purse kind of girl (ok ok I recently bought a lesportsac bag too for more casual summer occasions, who wants to bring a leather purse to the beach? and besides who can resist their patterns?!) but usually it is just me and my trusty black leather purse. I stumbled upon this Calvin Klein one at Macy's and it is the perfect simple shape and size that I have been looking for. I think I may be purchasing it soon as a gift to myself in celebration of my new job!

Flashback to Summer 07
