The Sartorialist II








The Sartorialist is looking for help with photo pairings for his new book. I love his first book, and since this is one of my favorite blogs I couldn't pass up the chance to get involved. These are the pairs that I came up with. Although I can only submit two this is my chance to show all of them. My real hope is that he looks at this post to see more than just the two that I sent. Wish me luck!

Michelle my Belle

Michelle Williams wore a Louis Vuitton school boy uniform to the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards. This was a pleasantly surprising choice. It "suits" her so well, and she looks adorable. Well done Michelle!

Marni for H&M






Mark your calenders! Marni has teamed up with H&M and will be available in select stores on March 8th. I am not a very competitive person, and I don't enjoy waiting in lines especially if it's for something that I don't need. I am, however, reconsidering these tendencies of mine. I may be elbowing other stylish ladies out of the way in order to get some of these pieces. I have been a huge fan of Marni for years, and I am so loving this collection. It's going to be a special occasion.

This photo was taken by an old friend named Ben while on a trip to NYC. He takes amazing photos.

Mother and Daughter



Susan Sarandon and her beautiful daughter, Eva, are currently featured in the Neiman Marcus Art of Style campaign. They are such stunning pair.

Milly!









Milly's fall 2012 collection is one of my favorites so far. It's very reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn's wardrobe in the film Charade. I can hardly believe that I took part in one of her very first fashion shows back in 2003. That was so long ago, and she's come such a long way.

She's Growing Up So Fast


It was just a few years ago that I first posted about Tavi Gevinson on my blog. She sure has grown into a beautiful young women. Check out her online magazine ROOKIE.

The Gustav Klimt woman has been all over the runways. Whether it's her unruly romantic hair or mosaic style golden brocade clothing, she's here for fall.

Friendship

Support your friends even in their mistakes. But be clear, however, that it is the friend and not the mistake you are supporting.
-Hugh Prather

Risky

Being myself includes taking risks with myself, taking risks on new behavior, trying new ways of 'being myself', so that I can see who it is I want to be.
-Hugh Prather

On Humor

True humor is fun. It does not put down, kid or mock. It makes people feel wonderful, not separate, different and cut off. True humor has beneath it the understanding that we are all in this together.

Wanted

I would be more than happy if this was the only item of clothing I bought for the upcoming summer. These need to be in my closet soon.

Bag Lady

I have always found those little write ups in magazines where some celebrity shares what's inside of her purse to be a little strange, and here I am sharing the contents of my purse with the world. There are actually websites devoted entirely to sharing what you carry around in your purse. I found this red woven leather bag at a thrift store, and for obvious reasons I couldn't pass it up. I've had it for about three years now. I think the stuff that I carry in my purse is pretty normal. I don't know. Here goes nothing: I've got my 2012 slingshot organizer, sunglasses, reading glasses, pepper spray, keys, whistle, mirror compact (from an old friend's moving sale), leather wallet, cell phone, Sharpie ultra fine point permanent marker, Swissco comb, JOUER tinted lip enhancer, Cover Girl outlast lipstain (#440 if you're interested), Goody hair ties, and some snacks inside my purse. I seem to turn into a raging lunatic whenever I get too hungry. Also, I believe I just Ali Sheedied you!

intimacy







Once again I have been inspired by my sister's blog Creatrix. Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were too cute for words. It seems pretty clear from these photos that the couple that plays together stays together.
