. . . elie saab never fails to be utterly breathtaking, and when you finally catch your breath, you will scarcely be prepared for the utter beauty of the latest spring couture collection, a flourish of mousseline and sheer décolleté, of tulle and organza, and flowers piled at the shoulder and tied with grosgrain at the waist, and all in glittery, fairytale shades of silver and champagne . . .

{two lovely things: clean lines & cozy afternoons}

two lovely things
paradissi-2

paradissi-1

. . . famously known for maximalist tendencies, am sometimes surprised when irresistibly drawn to unadorned walls and clean, modern lines, although, having always grown up in homes with fireplaces, perhaps the lure of a roaring fire in this last day of january is simply too much to bear . . .

{p.s.} friday was errands & appointments and much too fun on saturday & sunday, missing a weekend farewell & links, and so, if you've only just arrived . . .

{a few lovely links:}
* at this moment: plywood furniture
* fashion inspiration: made in italy {video}
* at home: let the sunshine in
* book: firework studies
* movie: have you seen?
* spot the difference: workspaces
* shopping: sexy for spring
* a thought: for those of us always late
* link love: snippet & ink
* travel: hotel boca chica

{as always, some things you may have missed:}
* thoughts for a new week: tea & toast

matchbook1

. . . by now, you most likely will have heard about matchbook, a new online magazine that launched last week -- considered a field guide to a charmed life, it is filled with an enchanting mix of classics, letterpress and paris, and many other wonderful things and even more so, delighted to have been a tiny part {here} of the premier issue . . .

happy monday! hope your week is off to a perfect start,
xo

{p.s.} a fun checklist

. . . hello! feels like forever since we last spoke -- yesterday was one of those days with meetings & appointments, and afterward, a million errands, drycleaners and bank, checking flights and making plans, but also one that was positivity filled with beautiful surprises -- cake and cookies and the kindness of strangers, and moments of pure brightness perfect for january skies . . .

{p.s.} aren't the stairs fantastic? reminds me of this floor & these shoes

{pale & pretty pink}

happily-ever-after-hed
pink-bow

. . . never one to look too far ahead, always preferring to stay in the moment, have been noticing {for quite some time now} valentine's day things already all around, and could not help but daydream {just a little}, remembering how simply pretty the palest pink satin ribbon can be . . .

. . . and just when it seems as if winter will last forever, the quiet realization that the month of january has {somehow} nearly and already fluttered by . . .

{style inspiration: pretty pleats}

. . . currently playing with the notion of a quick trip to new york -- {only pause for consideration being, taking the trip without p, who is has always been my constant travel companion} -- there would be meetings & appointments and catching up with friends, as well as a launch party, meaning, of course, much planning and dreaming up ideas of what to wear, and imagine something floor-length and with sleeves, cinched with a bow and flowing in pretty pleats a whispery shade of champagne-drenched honeysuckle may be just the thing . . .

. . . shall always adore katie lee's ultra-chic four-story west village townhouse, famously decorated by nate berkus a million years ago, in 2006; first seen in domino magazine and still an all-time favourite, the 4000 sq ft home, which includes 3/4 bedrooms, 4 baths, 4 fireplaces, an elevator, a landscaped garden, matchbooked marble detailing, and antiqued gold-leafing, is now on the market, and it is always interesting to compare how the real estate listing shots, often taken wide angles, differ from the rich, more detailed shots published in magazines; and so, a glimpse . . .
