Mink + Chitchat

If you thought those ankles in my last post were exciting, then this bare legged girl is a total exhibitionist. At least she has her mink to keep her warm.

Speaking of, do you all get offended by fur? I love animals but I love being warm most of all. Mink is really, really warm. And practical question - is it still a conflict garment if the mink died a really long time ago? There are some amazing vintage fur shops around the East Village. I think an antique mink might be a good "grown up" purchase one of these days.

Moving on... it's Friday, let's play a game.

The Pursuit of Style posted this fun questionairre today and I got so excited I wanted to share it here too. Thank you to Lindsay for both having an amazing blog and for helping me procrastinate so creatively...

Talent I wish I had: The ability to enjoy seafood

Best Gift I Ever Received: In the 1st grade I had the market cornered on pretty ballet flats with bows on them from Jacadi and all I wanted was a pair of white cowboy boots from Kmart. My mother's classic taste and good judgement told her she could never buy me these boots and live with herself. I begged for weeks, but she knew it would set a dangerous precedent, one that could ultimately lead to me having a lower back tattoo. Not wanting to completely crush my dreams, she did help me bake brownies and allow me to sell them at my dad's office to earn the money for the boots myself. I learned years later that my dad bought all the brownies. So thank you to my parents for the gift of the entrepreneurial spirit. They taught me that this will allow you to make your own choices, carve your own path and have the freedom to make your own sartorial decisions with the financial independence to act on them.

most memorable stamp on your passport: Zermatt, Switzerland.

Something I am excited about: The arrival of my new bedding from Serena & Lily. And, just for the record, I am always, always excited about croissants

Favorite Restaurant: You really can't play this game in NYC. It's too overwhelming. So I'm going to a throw back, Tuscarora Mill in Leesburg, Virginia. My first favorite restaurant love.

Camo Pants: do or dont: Never in a million years

Now it's your turn! Post here or visit Lindsay's blog and play the game there. Why not?

Beach Experiment

 So I was playing around with watercolors yesterday... actually using them as watercolors and not just a vehicle for adding life to ink drawings. It was refreshing to break the mold of my "techniqu...
