Colors for Spring '07

Derek Lam


Marc by Marc Jacobs (that sweater's very similar to Cherry, no?)

Stella McCartney

Jean Paul Gaultier

I'm feeling extremely inspired by all the drab, dusty colors punched up with citric brights as seen on the runway this spring....

Me Sew Inspired

I saw this adorable cape-like coat on Melissa's blog the other day. I love the shape and length of those sleeves! Did I mention on the blog that I bought Sew U a few months back? I did, but have yet to sew a damn thing, for a number of reasons....

1. My sewing machine is still in a box at my parents' house after moving away from Seattle.
2. I took sewing in 4H as a kid, and still haven't gotten over all the rainbow ribbons I received at the county fair for mediocrity.
3. I live in New York City. I have no room to set up a sewing station.
4. I have enough trouble committing to a single knitting project long enough to complete it. I don't need a new craft to further confuse things.

Despite all this, I would really, REALLY love to give sewing another chance in my life. I even sketched a dress design on a Post It yesterday at work. Maybe this summer, when the thought of holding wool on my lap each evening is unbearable.

As for knit-related inspiration, check out this tunic sweater!

Happiness is... a handmade cup

I received a special package at work yesterday....

My very own Ayumi Horie cup!!! Mine features a little bird and shelf. I'm counting it as an early birthday present to myself. (26 next Wednesday!)

Happiness is... Rain

The weather in New York City has been very odd. It hit 72 degrees on Saturday. But this morning, it rained. I was so pleased to hear the random droplets hitting my airconditioner as I woke up, and feel them soothingly plop on the top of my head as I walked to work, I didn't even notice that funny smell.

I resolve...

In the year 2007 I resolve to:
Poke a badger with a spoon.

Get your resolution here.

On the weekends, I am a Converse All Star Hi-Top kind of gal. Above are my current favorites, which I've been rocking for the past few months. White quilted leather with black rubber! Very Chanel, no? I didn't think they could possibly get any cooler than they already are, but then I found this site on shoe lacing techniques via Super Naturale....
