damn, the FW14 lookbook by Mayflower Supply was bittersweet for me to look through. very sweet because New York is always a good idea; but ever so slightly bitter because my husband is actually there right now – without me, waaaah! owner Liz Hull gave me some insight into the lovely…

if you’re like me then you peruse the selby often (and by often i mean all the time), and there would be no need to show you these pics. but i’m going to take a shot in the dark and share them with you in case you’re not a follower. this is hervé pierre‘s apartment in new york city, he’s the design director for carolina herrera.
