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.

I love collaborations.. There is something about bringing creative people together. It's an 
opportunity to get something better then you could do on your own. I wanted an experience 
that was more free and fun than a traditional photo shoot. Shooting the book this way 
was a chance to have other people share their vision and creativity. I make a wish list 
every season.. I start with friends, or friends of friends, then add people I don't know, 
but who I feel are in some way connected with the brand.

This lovely wood wall is made by Rachel Feinstein. She had an exhibit a while back at 
the Lever House in New York. I wish I had a better shot of the whole wall, but I don't.. 
I was rushed.. the exhibit was closed and the guard was nice enough to let us in. I 
always have something to post when she has a show (maybe I have a crush on her); 
I choose this because it seemed a bit different then her usual work.

I took this photo through the window of BDDW in passing.. They always have 
supremely interesting but warm and simple flower arrangements and vessels to 
place them in.

I spotted these beautiful water glasses while at dinner at Blaue Gans on Friday night. 
I was surprised to see such a delicate glass at a restaurant. 
FAVORITE LOOK | MET BALL By Araks on 2012-05-10 02:29:16 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK

I didn't look through everyone.. but from what I did see this was my absolute favorite.  
I thought Stella McCartney was perfection all the way down to her pointy white soled 
shoes.

I have found a few different kinds of masks from Charles and Ray Eames.  Some of 
their masks are more complex, these are the simplest that I have found.  I like them 
all, but these are my favorites. There is something nice about the flatness, it looks like 
cut paper collage
LIGHT MY FIRE By Araks on 2012-05-02 10:16:52 -0400 | Share on FACEBOOK
GabriellaKiss.JPG
According to Feng Shui, I needed more fire energy. I have too much water and wood. 
To balance this, I should wear more red.  I don't really wear red so my idea was 
maybe a ring?  I found this incy wincy garnet ring at Ted Muehling by Gabriella Kiss. 
Im also going to make a dozen dark pink panties.  That should give me good fire.

Sometimes I like the things around me to be asymmetrical. I never think about 
earrings, but this combination is nice. If you think about them like bedside tables... 
Do you really want them to match?

I think the proportions of this couch are so interesting.  The height of the back and the 
arm in comparison to  the shallow seat.. and the legs are the most amazing.  I can't 
tell if I would like it or not but definitely intriguing.  Circa 1950

Untitled (Mask) Lot 352.

Collage of cut paper might be my favorite kind of art to create.  Saul Steinberg is best 
known for his illustrations for The New Yorker, however I am much more drawn to this 
paper cutout collage with pen and tape.

I can't imagine where in Disney this must be. Maybe behind the scenes? So dreamy...
