In case you live under a rock or fail to subscribe to the same multitude of fashion-related e-mail newsletters that I do, New York Fashion Week is upon us. So, in an ode to one of my favorite designers, Lauren Moffatt, today’s “Outfit to Room” features a darling look, aptly titled “the Catcher in the Rye Sally” colorblock dress. The English major in me is geeking out. by Katie Farber of This, That, & The Other DRESS | PILLOW | CATCHER IN THE RYE | CHAIR | TRIANGLE ARTWORK | SOFA | TABLE
Our house has undergone a major facelift within the past few weeks and I must say that it is lookin good. Remember what it looked like before? Brick with a red tile roof. Our landlords, who live on the bottom two floors (we live on the top), have replaced the roof with a black tile roof, plastered it and painted it white and added really lovely windows. And we are most happy that there is now insulation. Yes, after they tore off the roof it was discovered that there was none, which explains so much about why it’s just as cold inside as it is outside during the winter.
I started this This Girl with the “reading” room that I found from Katy Elliott as I’ve been scouting out places to go in the South of France in September. Anyone have any tips? I’m looking for one place where we can stay for a number of days that an art lover would love. A town with cute shops and markets. A town where we can find fabrics and flowers and where we are inspired to paint and photograph. Am I the biggest mooch alive? I swear I’m not super needy in real life, I just trust my dear readers’ opinion. Shoot!
I made a cupcake stand out of candlestick holders for Brooklyn Bride and decided to try it with a different flavor so I used shocking pink spray paint. Shocked are you? It’s so easy! And guess who took the photos? ME! I got a 50mm lens for my birthday and my life has officially changed for the better. Thank you mom! I still have A LOT to learn so please be patient.
My new studio space has wonderful wood flooring. Two rooms are a beautiful herringbone pattern and the other is plain vertical planking. I’m ACHING to paint on some black and white diamonds like this party scene on the plain planking and then keep the integrity of the herringbone with a wonderful stain. What do you think? Have you ever done either? Any tips?
