Loving... (on a Thursday)

Clare Vivier's fantastic Camp Vivier collection -- especially that insane, buttery clutch above...

p.s. Pretty Mommy is having a 25% off sale off her entire shop (including the Clare Vivier clutch above) through this Sunday at midnight!


Olga Naiman's pretty much perfect jewelry display/inspiration wall on this d*s sneak peek... (found via Chelsea)



Kitka Design's completely addictive blog (both photos above are from there.) I was up way too late one night looking at all of their archives... I'm just sayin. (Thanks Lucia!)



These beach (or picnic) blankets from Steven Alan -- specifically the one second from the top, on the left, as it's the single souvenir that I bought for myself in NYC.

I had willpower friends.


Hanneli's perfectly chic Summer dress...

I never mange to look so, well...ethereal and lovely and cool in the Summer.

P.S. -- I spotted Hanneli in FAO Schwarz during our NY adventure. She was just as lovely in person...


And speaking of fun sightings, Audrey's big moment was meeting "Harry" from Cyberchase at the Electrolux event. She's a huge fan of that show, so she was pretty much over the moon.


These seemingly yummy and definitely lovely cordials via Rachel...

My favorite Summer drink is a "ginger lemon drop", which is essentially just some vodka + lemon juice and homemade ginger syrup. I'm thinking that ginger cordial above would be a tad easier than the homemade syrup...hmm.

Been lusting after a Vivier clutch for months. Had one in my shopping cart a few days ago and just couldn't finish the sale. My biggest issue? Chosing a color. Big problems over here, huh?

Lucia said...

Lucia said...

thanks! that's just perfect, because I have a huge knob of ginger sitting on the counter, and the weather is perfect for a gingery drink, ain't it? it's so humid that mushrooms are sprouting in all our potted plants.
