Matchbook Landscapes

Matchbook Landscapes is an interesting project by Krista Charles, who has collected old matchbooks ever since she salvaged a small collection from her then 90 year old grandfather-in-law. For each matchbook I find where the location of the business would be in Google Maps and on the inside cover of the…

No.6 Daily

i love checking into the No.6 blog to see what new pieces they’re carrying, and their informal photographs are always fun to look at. for those who don’t know, No. 6 is a shop in NYC (run by vintage collector Morgan Yakus and stylist Karin Bereson) that stocks vintage pieces,…

Modern Hearts

i can be a real grump when it comes to the wedding industry. overly elaborate ceremonies, staged props (usually of the cutesy & vintage variety) and terribly cheesy wedding photography that’s photoshopped within an inch of its life makes me sigh audibly. i find most of it completely unnecessary, and…

Confezioni Crosby F/W 2012

easter is my favourite holiday. not because of the chocolate (who cares about the chocolate? we can buy that stuff all year round – who are we kidding.) no no, it’s because every easter weekend in my living memory has marked the turn of the seasons. it will always be…

Ship & Shape Spring 2012

some pieces from the Ship & Shape Spring 2012 collection that i think are just too dang cute. too bad that coral & gold scarf is sold out, what a beauty.

The Parlour Suite

The Parlour Suite sent me an email to tell me about their new album Everyone’s Looking which is dropping this coming weekend. i can’t tell you how flattered i am to be approached by talented people making good music. The Parlour Suite is the surf-pop project, formed by Mpls (Minneapolis) husband-wife…

Into the Jungle

let me explain to you how this usually goes. i start browsing through my trusted roll of street style blogs, opening my favourite looks in new tabs, then i usually have a gander at bukowski’s to see what new art they have on their books (the internet isn’t fun if…

Off-Kilter

i’m really excited to offer you an exclusive first look at the new shoot from Kate and Alix (who you will remember from their last venture Fancy Pants) For our first shoot of 2012 we wanted to play with the idea of asymmetry which is how we came up with the title Off-Kilter.…

These Things No.36

these things no.36! the story behind don draper’s new digs. i am so envious of set decorator claudette didul’s job. she GETS PAID to scour antique shops and mid-century dealers and craigslist to find all these gems. and so she should, because she’s done an amazing job. really enjoyed hila’s beautiful…

Inspired by the novels of Jules Verne and Mark Twain, Ryan McGinley followed a group of kids through the uncharted underground caves of north America, taking pictures of them nude and tiny against the spectacular geological backdrops. all photographs by Ryan McGinley for his series Moonmilk. the book of prints…

Beautiful Girls in New York

street style circa 1944, photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt for a series called beautiful girls in new york for Life. i really think fourties style has to be one of my favourites, though perhaps women in new york have just always looked amazing.
