Pretty in pink bags from the usual sexy suspects: Sara Battaglia Lady Me two tone silk clutch, Stella McCartney Baby Bella shoulder bag, Cambridge Satchel Company large shoulder bag, Chloe small shoulder bag, Mansur Gavriel large bucket bag and Burberry Prorsum little crush clutch. Continue reading
Nikki Deloach was almost five months pregnant when we photographed this over a year ago in LA. We did minor retouching to shrink the bump a bit in the bathing suit photos but let me just say the woman looked insanely gorgeous while we shot for several hours in the sun without a peep of complaint from the mother to be. In the end it was just me and Nikki playing around (the photos against the wall), which is always fun. Photography & styling me, hair & make up Allison Noelle. Continue reading
God knows no woman in NYC would ever feel comfortable actually walking down the street in the look above (#YesALLWomen) but with the right car and driver, we are in business. I am insanely jealous of anyone who can afford this entire collection because it is so beautiful it makes me want nothing more than to be a material girl with a Kanye style bank account. Yup. I said it and I mean it. More Burberry Prorsum resort 2015 gorgeousness below. Continue reading
So many great books to read this summer. One of my favorite Bard MFA professors, Lydia Davis has a new book of short stories out, Can’t And Won’t. More books below, including Tom Robbins’ first (and presumably only) memoir Tibetan Pie: A True Account of an Imaginative Life, Khaled Khalifa In Praise of Hatred, Sophia Amoruso’s #GirlBoss (I am constantly in awe of this woman), Julia Fierro’s new novel Cutting Teeth, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book Hard Choices, Wintering A Novel of Sylvia Plath by Kate Moses, Emma Woolf’s The Ministry of Thin, which explores our cultural obsession with dieting, beauty and youth, Maggie Shipstead’s new “ballet novel,” which spans three generations, Astonish Me and Leila Hadley’s classic memoir Give Me The World.

I’ve been walking across the Williamsburg Bridge lately to explore Williamsburg and meet friends at various spots in the neighborhood that is now so famously transformed. I lived on Driggs and 7th street the summer of 1995, right after I graduated Bard, before I found my permanent homestead in the East Village. The neighborhood consisted of Polish delis, the L Cafe and Planet Thai in a tiny shoebox of a spot where a small bar sits now. I still don’t recognize the neighborhood the way it is now from what it was then but I love the transformation and can’t get enough of it. I love going for $1 oysters at Maison Premier, which happens every day, Monday thru Friday 4pm to 7pm and on weekends from 11am to 1pm. Make a left on Metropolitan and watch great indie films at Nitehawk Cinema, where you can also order drinks and food while you eat (it’s not as Continue reading
Obsessed with these Reed Krakoff Atlas mesh and patent leather pumps.
I’m just going with the theme of the day: ladies who make cool art on dreamy, melancholy landscapes. Erica McIntire and I did a shoot recently in LA; I photographed and styled while she was the muse and model with the intention of adding a layer of her imagination to the photos, which is what this is. I love her mind’s eye. The original shoot is here and more from Erica’s version below. Continue reading
The sisters (Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady) of Coco Rosie have a new album, Tales of a Grass Widow, coming out this month. I love their whispy ethereal electro sound. Listen here.
Émilie Richard-Froozan – Director Reel from émilie richard-froozan on Vimeo.
A little obsessed with this young Iranian filmmaker, Emilie Richard-Froozan, whose reel I stumbled on. In honor of Cannes, here is the next generation of reel women. Love this, haunting and layered. Her first feature, Buttercup Bill, is playing in the MARFA film festival in July. The film stars Remy Bennett (Tony’s granddaughter) and was produced by Blonde to Black Pictures, which was started by Sadie Frost and Emma Comley a year ago. Can’t wait to see what they all do in the next ten years.
Sometimes I get more obsessed with the casual red carpet looks than the gowns. Nikki Deloach above in an Ina Soltani top, Contrarian skirt and below in a Fifteen Twenty top and Calvin Rucker pants. Clutch from Tory Burch and heels from Nine West in both looks, details below. Continue reading
