a new beginning, maybe?

After a long haitus, I'm giving it another go. Let's see what happens... A lot has changed. Most significant, I now live in New Orleans -- a magical, wonderful place that I adore. Off we go!

Conroy & Wilcox Jewelry

I'm really not a jewelry person. I hardly ever wear it. Earrings always feel like too much. Bracelets get in my way. And I can rarely find rings and necklaces I actually like. (What can I say, I'm both particular and a bit of a minimalist.) So how is it that I adore (almost) everything on the Conry & Wilcox site? I mean, I don't think I've ever seen jewelry this gorgeous in my entire life. Apologies for the hyperbole, but I'm practically in cardiac arrest over this shit! Visit their tastefully designed site and have a look for yourself, if you don't believe me.

Eames for Herman Miller Rocker

I'm having an internal debate on whether or not to buy this Eames for Herman Miller chair. It's up on the Sit and Read Furniture blog, but it probably won't be available for long. Decisions, decisions...

Obsessed: Rachel Comey Shoes

L-O-V-E. Love Rachel Comey's beautiful shoes. I found a great selection of them at Creatures of Comfort's site. Her shoes are a dream. I love how unusual they are, and yet how simple, classic, and clean. This is how not to look like everyone else on the L train.

Screen-Printed Bags by Alexandra Cassantini

I like these hand-screened bags by Alexandra Cassantini, which, according to her website, are "CONSTRUCTED IN MINNESOTA BY MEN WHO SHOOT CANNONS IN THE WOODS AND CANOE DOWN FREEZING RIVERS." Who am I to argue with that? Check out more of her stuff here.
