Alison sent me the Spring lookbook for her lovely accessories label Grace. she also carries a scarf called the Diana, which literally has my name written all over it.
i haven’t read any blogs for two weeks, so going through Elise‘s these things list when i was scheduling this post was such a pleasure for me. Elise blogs at Pennyweight and is a bit of a Pinterest superstar (who has over half a million followers on Pinterest? Elise does.)
Hi, Elise here from Pennyweight. I was so excited when Diana asked me to guest post and just knew I had to do my own version of These Things — one of my favorite features on Miss Moss. Hope you enjoy!
01. Everything at this shop – Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Definitely planning a stop here for my visit in New York this week.
02. This beautiful photo and post by Maggie at Folkloric.
03. The dapper Jacob on Handsome Roy.
04. My kind of watch.
05. Shiva’s cozy, inviting ranch.
06. The sweet My Better Half series by Amanda Jane Jones.
07. Jessica’s lovely blog – which reminds me to be present and still.
08. A geometric throw pillow.
09. Jeanette Lai Thomas on How I Met Your Style.
10. Sharon Van Etten: Loving her new record entitled Tramp.
11. Beets + goat cheese = my favorite.
12. The heartfelt story of Nestor and Gloria who work at the denim company, imogene + willie, where I also work.
i asked Anabela of the newly revamped Fieldguided – nice work Kate! – if she’d care to share the lookbook that she & her partner Geoff recently shot for Scout & Catalogue. i really love Anabela’s visual aesthetic, and particularly enjoyed her behind the scenes photos from the shoot. Shop the collection here.
I first met Bre of Scout & Catalogue a few years ago when she was selling items from one of her earlier collections at a holiday market. As I mentioned on my blog, when she first asked if Geoff & I were interested in shooting her spring 2012 lookbook, I was nervous and tempted to say no, but I’m glad that I did. We shot this lookbook mostly on film, and even though it was the dead of winter, we ended up with a spring-like vibe that made me long for the blossoming of the magnolia trees. Luckily that will be happening soon enough.
This collection is so beautiful that I couldn’t help but pick up a leopard-print clutch for myself, although it took me weeks to choose just the thing that I wanted!

when i asked Jessica if she’d like to contribute a food related guest post I didn’t give her any direction because I knew that anything she made would be amazingly tasty. i had a good laugh when she sent me this. i was having a discussion with my brother just the other day about what our last meals on earth would be if we could choose, and of course i said mac and cheese. my mom’s mac and cheese, more specifically, but Jessica’s version looks it might be the winner (probably due to this line: “Aim to use as much cheese as possible! More than you think is appropriate.”)
Diana and I have known each other since we were 7 years old. That’s almost 22 years I have been witness to her love affair with cheese. On occasion she has described herself as having “a penchant for nice cheese”. More like fervent enthusiasm. I have a letter from our schoolgirl days in which Diana compares our friendship to no less than 25 different cheeses:
“… the legend of the Cheesemasters will live on … like mozzarella melting over a tomato covered pizza base … like Cheddar, Pecorino, Emmenthal and Parmesan; like Havarti, Sweetmilk, Motali and Brie … ” dot dot dot etcetera dot dot.
Her #1 cheese based dish of course, is Macaroni and Cheese. It has to be the ultimate comfort food. And boy is this recipe not the most delicious macaroni cheese I have ever tasted. Aim to use as much cheese as possible! More than you think is appropriate.
I adapted this recipe from Hawksmoor at Home. They make use of distinctively English cheeses, namely Stilton, Ogleshield and Montgomery Cheddar. I chose Taleggio for its excellent melting ability, and an aged Gruyere for its fruity flavour.
if you don’t already read Jen’s blog Honey Kennedy then you should head over there right now and subscribe. Jen is the queen of finding pretty things to look at, and i especially love when she shares new & interesting lookbooks from small and independent designers.
Hello there! My name is Jen and I write the blog, Honey Kennedy. I’m happy to be here guest blogging for Diana today while she moves to her new home in the city. Thanks for having me, Diana!
My post is loosely based on my love for those pretty light pink and metallic boxes you get when you buy macarons from Ladurée. Now that I’ve put my collage together, it has become clear that I was also inspired by the hints of spring and blooms that have been teasing our minds lately here in the Pacific Northwest. OK, without further ado, here are ten things I’ve been admiring. I hope you enjoy them, too!
5. New Blankets from Pendleton’s The Portland Collection A/W 2012
I own one of their blankets from last season and can’t wait to get my mitts on another in the fall! See my recent Pendleton post —> HERE.
7. Pink A/W 2012 Dress by Jil Sander
This Jil Sander collection was one of my fashion week runway favorites for Autumn 2012. Sadly, it seems this may be the last for the line from creative genius, Raf Simons. The colors are so exquisite! The color of this dress is DREAMY–so soft, yet vibrant.
9. Block Print Bedding from ABC Home
I am obsessed with this pretty bedding. I love the Aqaba, Zarqa and Provence prints! I’ve been going to look at these beauties several times a week for the past couple months. Love!
10. Vetyver Bouquet Glass Candle from Curio Noir
I love nice candles. This one contains notes of Cypress, Orange Flower, Jasmine and Vetiver. I love their packaging and handcrafted glass jars. I’d love to get my nose on Tubereuse Noir, too.
