That girl up there isn't (the fantastically funny and lovely) Caroline... no it's a super chic girl that Caroline spotted on the street, photographed and then effortlessly recreated her outfit (below). And ever since spotting that particular post on Greedy Girl way back in April, I've been working on replicating that exact. same. outfit. for myself, which has resulted in an obsession with finding the perfect skinny (but not too skinny) black pants.
So thanks for that Caroline ;-)
Here's how the lovely and witty Caroline of the essential Greedy Girl describes herself:
"greedy girl is a catalog of inspiring finds from around the world and web. the greedy girl behind the blog is a newspaper designer in oklahoma city with a spending problem."
The only thing I love more that someone who can find killer stuff on a regular basis (the kind of stuff you never seem to find on your own) is someone that willingly admits how much they love to shop.
(I especially respect that given my love/guilt relationship with buying that inspires spending hiatuses and all sorts of other craziness...but I digress.)
But Caroline doesn't just find killer stuff, she also writes witty things about the stuff she finds -- a combo that makes her blog one of my very favorites. So I'm happy that she's agreed to share her favorites with us this week.
So without further ado, herewith Caroline's list. Enjoy and have a splendid weekend.
fortune cookies. i'm not a particularly superstitious person, but i take fortune cookies very seriously. i have rules. the fortunes can never be thrown away. that is bad luck. and fortunes must be read before taking a first bite of the cookie. otherwise, that is bad luck, too. (photo here)
typography. handsome typography. plain and simple. (photo here)
quiet time. can you blame me?
my dog's smile. nothing melts my heart faster than luke's toothy grin.
postcards. love buying them, sending them, receiving them, collecting them. (photo here)
