my list of sewing to-dos these days is loooong
but with the color wheel commission successfully off
and a few halloween gifts sewn and shipped
i needed a day
to dive in my stash
and get creating
i caved and bought wiksten’s
tova tunic pattern
knowing i could draft something myself
but not wanting to get in my own way
a few hours and one tunic later!
the pattern was simple to follow
my only change was taking 1″ off the hem
i love that it looks polished with dark jeans and a blazer
or comfy with black yoga pants
i haven’t taken it off since i finished topstitching
eventually, i’ll have my husband snap a few pictures of it on me and share
now, i’m even more inspired to keep sewing
more tunics to come, for sure!
my dad and i were in NYC for a few days last week
and managed to hit all my favorite places
for food, drink and inspiration
hollywood’s big night
where the red carpet really IS the best part
and my favorite ladies
did NOT disappoint…
gywneth was STUNNING in calvin klein.
this IS modern glamour
and the stick- straight hair was perfect.
she. has. arrived.
seriously… SO proud with that stunning white bob
and fircely funky dress
i just adore her.
not my most favorite look on her ever
but she ROCKS it
and speaking of red hot mammas…
hello, penelope cruz
and her 4 week post-baby bod.
all hollywood glam
love the emeralds with the black + white
make up. hair. dress.
in that stand-out lavender
which was gorgeous on the red carpet
and her insanely feminine bob.
did you watch? what were your faves?!
i can’t stop watching this behind-the-scenes short
with scott schuman
(one of my very favorite reader-reads of the day!)
he is just so refreshing, humble and true.
i am fully immersed in
a story of a woman who left her life in New York City
when she fell in love with a man and their idea of starting a community-sustaining farm together.
i CANNOT put it down.
while certainly not as extreme, when i left NYC for Little Rhody, i traded my heels for clogs, take-out for made-from-scratch and now, too, wear my cashmere to bed.
and, i’m loving every minute of it.
however, i do think these totes
would add the perfect amount of city style
to my weekly load of veggies at the farmer’s market…
this signature bag is per.fec.tion!
don’t you think?
fall in new york.
the one time of year that really makes me miss living in the city.
(ohhh, those michael kors shows…)
everyone walking the streets
seems to step it up a notch…
love the denim on denim here (on jenna lyons?) dressed up with the coral lips and louboutin’s
to. die. for.
seriously the most anticipated issue of the year in the fashion magazine world
september’s is always jam-packed with inspiration
though it’s arrival in early august is always a bit depressing…
something about looking a tweed while drinking lemonade on the beach-
but the photos
and the fashion
ooooh, the fashion…
and this year
was certianly NO disappointment
with my favorite leading ladies gracing the most coveted covers…
(can’t really go wrong with the producers of juno and little miss sunshine…)
