Objet. Espadrilles

I have included my beloved Soludos in a couple of posts, but my obsession has become borderline.  I have loved my dear espadrilles since The Farris gave me a pair last summer.  Since my move to NYC I have cherished their chic, understated comfort.  In a place where you have to commute on a train and walk blocks and blocks in a pair of shoes, it can be incredibly difficult to find appropriate footwear.  I have abandoned my heels and Stubbs for my Soludos and have begun a systematic conversion within my group of friends. 

Just ordered these.

Mes Coups de Coeur.

I spent Sunday on Smith Street drinking vin, eating yummy French treats and watching Bar Tabac's Petanque tournament.  All of the stripes, head scarves and je ne sais quoi got me to pondering all things French.  Here are a few of my favorites.  xo

 Open Wedge V1.  Surface to Air 

Garance Dore.  The Sartorialist

French Bergeres.  Christie's

Phillipe Stark.   Le Lan

My Frenchman.

Haricot Vert.

I was at a wedding this weekend and the fresh brightness of the green bouquets stuck in my brain.  I wanted to celebrate a color that I tend steer clear of in my own wardrobe and interiors, but now I'm rethinking it all because this color is wonderfully joyful.

Interior Obsession.

It's been a long time since I've had a chance to post, so I thought I would share a little something about my life.  I am a magazine hoarder.  I keep magazines forever in stacks and piles against walls, under furniture and in my kitchen cabinets.  My problem has become all too clear as I spring clean my way through my apartment in preparation for my cross-country move to NYC.  I can't even imagine sending my collection of magazines so far, so on some sage advice from a friend I have started tearing into my glossy friends and scanning and filing my magazine inspiration rooms and vignettes onto my computer.  It has been taking a lot of my free time (I haven't even started on my World of Interiors or Marie Claire Maisons) so I thought in lieu of anything else I have pulled some of my favorite tears to share.
