all from secondhand + vintage brooch


make yourself aDressss -

One-week illness spent just by staying home, absolutely unable to start a sort of constractive acions, made me have the most boring week ever.
But with weekend some energy and creativity came and have finaly found results in this new staff. For a long time I was thinking what to do with ugly, supersize dress from secondhand, that was in my wardrobe (how?). I decided to make what I actually whanted to do with jeans, but haven't found the suitable ones yet. Adding those transparent triangles and sleeves, making backline (I'm actually thinking of making it even deeper). I took hours to make it, but it's inimitable anyway ;) I just wish my cat would help me next time, not only by staring at me with her big stupid eyes. Maybe with jeans, cause I still want to do them!

I'm feeling super lucky and blessed!

On October 14th 2009,I went to a press showcase day for Echo Design's fall collection. I got an invite yesterday from the lovelies at Tracy Paul to attend a Inge Christopher-Whiting&Davis handbags press showcase event.I can't wait to tell you all about it. It's this Thursday 11/05/09:)
p.s-These have all been day far!

Must have winter fashion accessories

I’m always saddened by the end of summer especially when the clocks are turned back and darkness falls so early in the evening. But yesterday I was driving along and the wind was blowing the brown golden leaves everywhere. For miles I could see stretches of grass covered with these golden leaves and I thought what a heavenly picture. I suddenly thought, “I do like autumn”. I guess I do not look forward to the raking up of the leaves but yesterday was such a refreshing day with the sun shining, mild temperatures and a swaying wind that it almost felt like late spring / early summer.
ladies tights While the trees are baring all by shedding their leaves, it is a time for us ladies to cover up and create layers of fashion to keep warm and look stylish. By now most people are doing their wardrobe cleanout and relinquishing summer wardrobe must haves to dark crevices of the wardrobe or suitcases. I on the other hand, am mixing and matching my summer blouses with my summer dresses and tunics to create a unique but ultimately warmer look.
winter boots
I always look forward to the challenge of layering up my summer dresses with must have winter fashion accessories which include long sleeve jerseys, roll neck polos, leggings, tights, large woollen scarves, skinny jeans and boots.

Have a fun weekend.

My lovelies, what are you up to this weekend? Our friend Tasha (of gorgeous wedding fame) just opened a new restaurant, Tipsy Parson, in Chelsea, and we're really excited to try it out. (The menu includes mac n' cheese, deviled eggs and sweet potato beignets. Yum.) Have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few great posts from around the web...

Glitter pumpkins.

French brand Petit Bateau just released this adorable swimsuit. Too bad it's October!

A fabric resume, pine needle embroidery, and pretty stationery.

I'm so impressed by this DIY Audubon paperweight.

A plaid shirt for cyclists.

Pretty wedding photos (especially the couple wrapped up in a quilt!).

Alex and I get spooked in big houses. This little one would do just fine.

Ew, a meat hand!

Love the graphics in this Swedish house.

A documentary about WASP culture.

Knitting for British soldiers.

Gorgeous antique jewelry at Erie Basin.

City vs. country

I love Manhattan, but sometimes the garbage trucks are too loud and the mice are too in-our-living-room. Emersonmade makes me want to move to the countryside and hang out on haystacks.

Are you a city girl or a country girl?

What are you going to be for Halloween?

What are you going to be for Halloween this year? (This Oeuf animal costume kills me.)

polish supermodels style part 1 Magdalena Frąckowiak

Uwielbiam polskie supermodelki i oczywiście patriotycznie uważam je za królowe wybiegów! Ale naprawdę warto też zwrócić uwagę jak prezentują się poza nimi. Na wszelkiego rodzaju pokazach czy imprezach wyglądają równie przecież równie pięknie, a dodatkowo zwracają uwagę stylowym strojem.

Jako pierwszą prezentuję Magdalene Frąckowiak (kolejność przypadkowa!!).

Living In: Rosemary's Baby

Rosemary's Baby is one of my favorite movies. Have you seen it? The film is about a couple who moves into an Upper West Side apartment, meets odd neighbors, gets pregnant, and watches as their lives get stranger and stranger. Alex quotes it all the time ("It has an undertaste, a chalky undertaste..." he tells me, whenever we have dessert).

So I was thrilled to see Rosemary's Baby featured in Amy Merrick's Living In series, which reveals how to get the movie's amazing style. Check it out here.

Home Inspiration: London

What a bright and beautiful house in London. I'd love to move right in and start working on my British accent. (The giant Penguin book-cover-cum-artwork is fantastic, don't you think?)

Friendly piglet

I felt weirdly sad last night, for no real reason. (Does that ever happen to you?) I couldn't figure out why. So, I'm going to post pretty things all day, starting with this cute little piglet, photographed by Sharon Montrose.
