Aprizi is a young startup in NYC creating a "Pandora for shopping", focused on emerging designers, artisans and independent brands. I am so excited to recently join their team of curators! We're searching the web for the best of the best. I highly recommend taking a browse! And check out The Tail (Aprizi's blog)—gift guides all next week!

Alice Rosignoli

Very cool! Alice Rosignoli takes wood hangers and black ropes to create a product that shows how everyday goods used in their ordinary function can be transformed into a new concept.

Rainy Day

This is what Portland is like right now. I'm enjoying it!
Photo by Colie Parks


This brings back a memory I have of my sister and I waiting outside our big brother's door when we were little. It's a story that involves a popcorn kernel getting stuck up my nose.

Martin Pisotti

This photo exhibition by Martin Pisotti  is awesome! I love the way the pictures are effortlessly scattered about, some in frames and some taped to the wall. Mite Gallery, Buenos Aires. Spotted here.

NY Fashion Week

Have you guys been enjoying fashion week?! I certainly have! Here are just a few of the looks I'm dying over. Top row: Rebecca Taylor, Rachel Comey, Reem Acra. Bottom row: Marc Jacobs. I'm saving a bunch of favorites for Color Collective, but I couldn't resist posting here too.

Things Organized Neatly

When I was little I would set out my outfits for each day of the week, labels and all. Totally OCD. If you are too, don't miss Things Organized Neatly.

Kwangho Lee

I was blown away when I saw these paintings by Kwangho Lee on But does it float. A-mazing.

More Toms!


Remember two posts ago when I said I wasn't ready for fall? Yeah, I'm over it. My obsession with Toms is out of control, but I must have these! Which color do you like better? (I'll probably go with black, but the thought of the brown with a pair of jeans is making me second guess!)

Yuko Takada Keller

I'm growing fond of delicate and dreamy installations. These two are by Yuko Takada Keller. Seen on Caludia's Blog.

Here's another magical installation

Summer is still going strong in Portland and this year it's the simple things that I have been enjoying the most. Berry picking (*my FAVORITE), farmer's markets, bike rides, floating down the river, bbq's, wine on rooftops—these activities never get old. Even though I adore fall (shopping!), I'm not quite ready for it yet!

Rachel Bilson

Call it a girl crush if you want—I am madly in love with Rachel Bilson's style. This lady ALWAYS looks good from head to toe, and is no doubt the best dressed celebrity!

A few things I've spotted recently that I can't get out of my head. (Along with this song)
1) Cicada Wing Pendant via TeenAngster 2) Kelly Lamb Planters via General Store

Falling Garden

What I wouldn't do to go back in time and see this amazing installation, Falling Garden, in person. The project was a collaboration of two swiss artists, Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger, created for the 50th Biennial of Venice in 2003. Posted on The Jealous Curator.

My good friend Melissa is so creative and talented! She just put up a website and blog and I'm looking forward to keeping up with her projects, as she is a huge inspiration to me!

Lushlee just posted about Erin Fetherston's Resort 2011 Collection and WOW! What an incredible collection! Simple and romantic.

My new ride!

Yesterday was so beautiful here in Portland, I decided to go out and purchase a bike that has gears! This is it! Perfect, don't you think?! I still love my other bike, but gears are necessary around these parts. I can't concentrate on work, all I want to do is ride around and explore!

I could use a week of this. Image found via Dream and Wake.

P.S. I had way too much fun in ohio, and am sad to report that all my pictures suck! I don't think you would be interested in the shots of me singing karaoke (and even if you were, I wouldn't show you!)

Cynthia Rowley Resort 2011

I'm heading back to the midwest this week. I have 4 different cameras already packed (well, in my head) so I'll try to take some snaps for you guys! I'm ready for pool time, lightning bugs, bbq's, and celebrating the 4th like a true midwesterner. Hope you have a great week!

Intelligent Clashing

Intelligent Clashing is another blog I have been enjoying recently. I love the mixture of 80's/90's textbook-style photos, textiles, and images of current art/trends. Fabulous!

I've been on the computer for way too long today, but I just couldn't help but to share this! The Thakoon Resort 2011 collection is seriously awesome. I'm kind of dying over that left outfit. Found on Sara's blog via Visuals.

Suki Cheema

Love this pattern from Suki Cheema. Found through Design*Sponge.

Blog Love

A few weeks ago I mentioned a size too small in one of my posts. Have you checked it out yet? Mariah blogs (from South Africa) about design, fashion and more. I truly look forward to each and every post! She has impeccable style and design taste, and pulls nothing but the best images. Today Mariah and her husband Andrew celebrate their first anniversary, so a very happy anniversary to you love birds!

I want to go to SF

Lena's snapshots from her recent trip to San Francisco are gorgeous! These in particular are from General Store. God, I can't wait to go there!

I'd love to take a trip to the oregon coast wearing this outfit. Jack Wills has some cute new summer items! Also adore these looks pulled by Chelsea.

I'm going crazy over the new looks (and perfect styling) from Jackson, Johnston & Roe.
Found via size too small (a wonderful blog that you should pay a visit to!)

I can't even explain to you how beautiful this book ABZ is. I scanned in a few pages to give you a little preview. My favorite teacher in college brought it into class one day, and I knew right away that I couldn't live without it. If you love typography, it's an absolute must-have.

Went on a quick trip to Arizona over the weekend to visit the grandparents. We had a great time! My grandpa is quite the character! On Sunday we met a few of their friends for bagels, and I swear it could have been a Seinfeld episode.

More images here.

I'm so in love with Shabd. Oh, that fabric! These looks are from the autumn/winter 2010 collection (sneak peak), via Unruly Things.

Lisa Stickley

Chelsea generously offered to lend me some of her old Domino magazines. I spent hours browsing through them the other night! A product of Lisa Stickley's was featured in one of the issues, and after checking out her online shop, I was NOT disappointed! The makeup bags are splendid, and I just love those florals and stripes! Very cute indeed!

The Sartorialist

I bought The Sartorialist book! I must say, it's the perfect addition to the coffee table! This is one of my favorite looks. Adorable!
