Created for the Metro in Melbourne, Australia.  Is this not the funniest public safety
announcement I've ever seen?!

My boys made these.  I would say they perfectly represent their personalities. Khoren 
made the one to the left and Aren's is on the right.

I could wear either outfit.

Commander in Chief, by Brian Tolle at the CRG Gallery
I was visiting the galleries in Chelsea a few months ago and found this exhibit. I love 
how he curated this collection of campaign pins from the past few decades.

From my earliest memories, my father gave me and my sister only three colors to 
work with: red, yellow and blue. He told us we could create all the colors we wanted 
from these three. He stood his ground till about my early teens. It was challenging, 
but from that I developed an amazing sense and obsession for color. It is also my 
most successful form of therapy. Just stand me in front of a wall full of color. Instant 
happiness.

I loved everything about this video.  Perfection!  The color, costumes, hair... oh and I 
like the song too!

You can buy them from the Fine Little Day Shop.

These may be some of my favorite ads. Irving Penn for Clinique from the 80's 
or 90's? I can't remember...

While shopping vintage with my favorite dealer Mary Catalina, I came upon this 
Wendy Gell hair clip from the 80's, made of flea market salvages. I loved it but left it behind.

While I was Germany, Shirley made a summer vacation stop in Paris and went to the 
Musée Galliera, to see the Balenciaga exhibit at Les Docks. I love this necklace... it's 
is so big and colorful.  We don't know the year? Shirley was too excited to get next 
door to see the COMME des GARÇONS to note.

Caitlin McConnell (she works at Araks), brought in a few pics of her great 
grandmother, Seconda. Also, the grandmother of Cheryl Dunn a friend and former 
Araks look book contributer .  I nearly fell over... To me, it's not only the style but 
the demeanor is spot on those McConnell/Dunn girls.
