Discovered this store by John Agujar and Fredrick Spendlove in my neighborhood last weekend while walking back from the Brooklyn Flea and it is literally the most amazing furniture + design store I have ever set foot in. The pieces are whimsical, some retro, some modern, and some antique. Just about everything is gonna cost you a serious lump of change, but its always fun to look for inspiration! From their site:

“The core of the original collection was an exclusive offering of Milo Baughman deadstock unearthed after decades of storage in Thayer Coggin’s warehouses, complimented by a diversified collection of vintage & antique pieces embracing aesthetic movements from the 1890’s to the 1990’s, as well as new in-production pieces by Thayer Coggin, Dunbar, & Classicon”.

Check out more of their pieces here or visit the store on North 6th + Kent!

I have a lot of weddings + engagement parties to attend in the next couple of months, in all different cities, and I was thinking about how hard it can sometimes be to dress for a wedding. It’s always a fine line. Between being to dressy and too casual. Between looking good but not like you’re trying to show up the bride. Between wearing something fun but still looking wedding appropriate. Between wearing those great shoes and wearing shoes you can dance in. Not to mention the day-to-night and hot+sunny to chilly aspect. Bringing both sunglasses and a wrap is important. I put together a few inspiration boards to help me visualize it better.  Thoughts??

This is the most satisfying thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Some of the food shots remind me of Marina Ekroos’ food photography.

Rustic Inspiration

Our apartment is pretty close to being done, with mostly just decorating left. Here are some things I stumbled across that I love for interiors right now. I love that egg photograph and I might have to recreate it for our kitchen. I’m also on a quest to find some form of taxidermy for our walls, but I have yet to convince Jay. I wouldn’t exactly call him a PETA activist but he hates all fur (even vintage+faux, which are the only kinds I will wear) I’ve been eyeing that upholstered wooden chair from Anthropologie for awhile – it has the names of NYC subway stations on it. And…unfortunately I probably won’t be putting a fireplace in this place, but its nice to dream.

Here’s where I found the bedroom.

Thanx – Giving

Being from the South Shore of Massachusetts, Thanksgiving is a big holiday for me.  This is the first year I’m not going to be with my family! Unfortunately we have to be our of our apartment 2 days after Thanksgiving.  I’m quite sad but that means that I will be cooking my first Thanksgiving dinner!!!! If you are into cooking, feel free to check out some of my Thanksgiving recipes-to-come on my cooking and food photography blog.

One of my favorite things about the holidays has always been dressing up for dinner.  Here’s some inspiration for your Thanksgiving adornment.
