    We have a four days weekend in Argentina too, enjoy yours! Loved your selection of pics. Besos!

    p.s.: The Patagonia picture is from Argentina, it’s Puente del Inca in Mendoza, which is not exactly in the Patagonia region, but it’s ok, the photog was confused, LOL

    oh Margaret Howell’s clothing is always so sophisticated, if I owned it I would definitely be way smarter.

    Have a lovely Holiday Miss Moss!! and Happy Easter!!!

    I was inspired simply by Margaret Howell’s lookbook, but every other photo added to the beauty and inspiration – brilliant collection! Happy Easter!

    That tumblr is fantastic! Also the Miss Piggy pic is great, I just love those muppets.

    Miss Piggy and Kermit made me smile. So cute.

    God, if I had all of those Margaret Howell pieces I would never shop again. Ever.

    You always put together the best collection of interesting images. I really love looking at your blog! The pic of the kitty actually made me laugh out loud, and annie hall piggy & kermit made me bust a gut, so cute!

    that cat just leaves me speechless.

    You are just the coolest. Seriously. I just started delving into your blog awesomeness and am totally in love with it. Had to put you as one of my very favorites in one of my recent blog posts, to boot!
    Also… the Gob quote is so freaking funny. I’ve used it a few times- which just resulted in people thinking I have no idea how to pronounce circumvent. But, that’s okay. I was happy to take one for the team- even if it was just for my own little world.

    Have a lovely holiday break!

    L-O-V-E this Miss Piggy Calendar! I was Piggy for Halloween – in a homemade costume complete with Kermit the Frog treat basket – for a solid decade as a kid. Good times. xo Lola

    oh BOY, do I ever wish I had Sofia Copolla’s wallet. if I did, I would dress myself in Margaret Howell from head to toe.

  17. Sara Sunday 24 April, 2011 at 6:14 pm #

    I am absolutely smitten with your blog. This is exactly what I would want mine to be if I had the time/energy: a curation of all the beautiful things that inspire me. You put everything together in such a beautiful way. Kudos. Keep it up :)

    Very nice pictures! I am absolutely in love with the “hair” picture. I wish to have hair like that as well but because of my unbelievably round and fat face, that will just be a dream. Haha! XX
