A Continuous Report / NYC Restaurants

(5 comments)
I was sick all weekend and spent my time in bed drinking tea, wandering around the internet and watching episodes of 30 Rock. The upside of being sick- not feeling guilty about staying in bed for two days straight. It was during this time that I came across A Continuous Report. It's filled with the best shopping, restaurant, and hotel finds from some of the worlds most stylish cities (Amsterdam, New York, London, Paris etc.) Below are three restaurants that all happen to be in New York and are now most certainly on my "To Do Next Time I'm in New York list". Joseph Leonard, Aria, and Bread. Anybody ever been?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 25, 2010

This is my third Thanksgiving outside of the States (second in South Africa)  and Andrew and I have taken the day off to celebrate along with everyone back home. So right now I'm curled up in bed listening to Vince Guaraldi and drinking tea.  Later we'll be watching a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and then even later on we've got friends coming over and I'm making my very first Thanksgiving dinner! I'm missing the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade though- but these vintage pictures of it are pretty amazing. Happy Thanksgiving!

In honor of Thanksgiving on Thursday, I've put an outfit together for the occasion. I have to say  I've never really been into animal print but I do appreciate it on occasion and this is one of those occasions.

Herriott Grace

I pretty much love everything that Herriott Grace does and while the shop is almost always sold out that doesn't stop me from drooling over the goods. Beeswax birthday candles- how magical.

Now & Then: Joan of Arc

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

(7 comments)
If Joan of Arc were still alive, she'd be wearing Balenciaga's Spring 2008 Collection.

Photobucket
Joan of Arc's life was remarkable. Born a peasant girl in France, she ended up leading the French army to several victories during the Hundred Years War. And she did all of this when she was still a teenager. Balenciaga's Spring 2008 collection gives off a very strong warrior feel, with it's structured dresses (reminiscent of armor) and gladiator inspired lace up boots. I think we need more girls in the world like Joan. To see the rest of the "Now and Then Gang" go here

From Fall to Summer

(7 comments)
I went to the beach both Saturday and Sunday this weekend and it was pretty glorious. Yes- that's a picture I took of the beach- amazing right? I know last week I was complaining about missing Fall and then I went and embraced Summer's return. What can I say, I'm a traitor. But I still miss Fall- just maybe on the week days only.

Ode to Fall

Friday, November 12, 2010

(8 comments)
So I have to say that I've been missing Fall a lot this year. In my mind November means cozy sweaters, and chilly wether, warm drinks and Thanksgiving. But November in South Africa means summer is coming. I blame my discontent on the internet- reading everyone else's blog posts about the Fall weather and all the cozy things you're doing. So this is my Ode to Fall. 

Photobucket
Fall is warm cozy sweaters, mittens, pumpkin pie, boots, kids wearing backpacks, hot drinks, the changing colors of the leaves, warm blankets and the music of Vince Guaraldi (composer of the music for Charlie Brown)

I actually can't even handle J.Crew right now.  They brought Confetti System into their already insane styling of the December catalog. I want to live in this catalog. And have you been to their website lately? So many more beautiful pictures...run, don't walk.

Frances May

Frances May is one of my favorite shops to visit online. I wish I had known about it a few years ago when I was visiting Portland and while I'm wishing for things I wish there was one here in Cape Town. Here are two of my favorite looks from their shop- baggy and cozy just like I like it.  How cozy would that jacket be for winter?
