gene on the street

I love this picture of Gene Tierney. If you know anything abut me personally- you know that I love adding a bit of glam to my casual. I think my favorite thing about this is that it looks like it could have been taken by a street photographer today (but it is circa 1946).

I like to think if it were taken today, some of these favorites of mine may have shown up in the shot. (psst: check out the other amazing cacharel shoes at the link below!!)

First: did you see this yesterday? It was all over twitter. But in case you missed it. very funny.

I am very picky about casual shoes. But I cannot wait to get a pair of these from mymu.
I spent a quite some time on their site yesterday and then chatted with the lovely owner to find out more about the brand.

Turns out these in the last photo (all photography by Andrew Cinnamon) are about to sell out but available here at net-a-porter!

(Tyring to decide between those above or the marisa espadrilles...hmmm)

chloe + the rug company

working on something very new and different. while peeking at some resort collections- because they are always my favorite no matter how impractical- I stopped to stare at this one by chloe.
And then remembered on of my favorite rooms at the rug company.
It is any wonder why I have been searching for peach envelopes everywhere? I am clearly dreaming of this color everywhere.

Dallas Shaw for DKNY PR Girl

Want to thank the dkny team for the continued love and support they show as the project over at twitter grows. I have never expected to meet so many great people through this little avatar. Here is the new dkny pr girl, wearing Donna Karan:
We like to think she is across town to her next stylish event. (Very similar to real life dkny girl...)

Hope you love.

Stay in the loop on the project here! dkny, dallasshaw01
