Loving...On A Friday

(Photograph by Jason Schmidt for The New York Times)

So apparently Wednesday is long gone, and, well...it's Friday. Not quite sure how exactly that whole situation happened, but it's seriously freaking me out that my weeks are becoming sort of "blink and you miss them" enterprises. I need to look into this. Stat.

In the meantime, anyone up for a two-day-late loving list? Whattya say we kick things off with the lovely Sophia C. in the NYT?

Despite a slew of critical comments about the legitimacy of two (very) famous people discussing their longing for privacy, I think the conversation between Sophia and Lee Radziwill was smart and spot on. Yes they are both famous, and yes the piece was in the most popular newspaper in the country, however, there's a (major) difference between artists/actors/writers/anyone engaging with the press and public in a thoughtful, measured, considered way (i.e. talking about/sharing new projects, participating in meaningful dialog) and being (please excuse the really vulgar term) a fame whore.

All that aside, I also really loved those flowering branches...Oh and when Sophia said this:

"Yeah, it was always interesting and I really enjoyed that my parents always included us in their lives. So we got to be around all these interesting people and go on adventures..."
I hope I am doing the same for my girlies.

Ok next up is Jen's blog. I've been online friends with Jen for several years now, and it's been so fun to watch as her aesthetic sensibility has become so honed and focused. Watching someone grow creatively in real-time is incredibly cool. I feel honored that she's let us come along for the ride. Jen, you are a rock star lady. And you are killing me with your mad photography skills. I'm not gonna lie.

Then there's the matter of Laura Owens. Above at The Finley in Los Angeles and below in detail on Sarah and Tammy's site. Stunning.

I'm loving Rachel Comey's Eddi dress almost as much as the Chernist. Almost...

And finally there's Mary Ping's Ultimate Bag for Slow and Steady Wins the Race
. Per the site, "the bag represents a visual hyperbolic expression about contemporary fashion's attention and obsession with designer handbags." And it is genius in every way. Full stop.

This seems like it'd be up your alley. I've been having fun sneaking a peek at other people's bookshelves and trying to come up with my own top five. It's hard! http://www.itsnicethat.com/categories/bookshelf

Have a happy weekend!

I also enjoyed the interview with Sophia and Lee. Both are style icons but are from different generations. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the two.
