Loving...On A Wednesday (And A Winner)

Rachel Comey's Chernist dress -- my hands down favorite dress of the season. Full stop. I want this bad boy in the worst possible way (despite the fact that that cut out action on the bodice scares the bejesus out of me).

Dieter Rams' ode to omission. I am struggling with the simplicity of late friends (see the massive dress coveting above). When things get busy and life feels harried (i.e. now), mindfulness seems to fall by the wayside, and I get stuck in "over" mode. Over drinking, over eating, over purchasing, over thinking. Somehow I misguidedly think that throwing stuff at my frantic self is somehow the answer. It's not good. But admission is the first step right? Admission then omission. At least that's what I'm going with. 

There are currently sundry vases and random vessels scattered about my house filled with half dead flowers (another side effect of the harried). I am comforted by the fact that in Dutch artist Frank Bruggeman's hands my domestic shortfallings can become works of art (spotted via En Suite). Brilliant. 

Dealtry's gorgeous latest collection (and Jennifer's equally gorgeous outtakes from the look book shoot).

Nearness of Distance -- Discovered in my comments. A total aesthetic kindred spirit. I love it when that happens...

And last but not least, the winner of Julie Cohn's lovely Cup Ring. Congrats Torrie
