crystalline nebulous

Amid my magnificent Vermont paradise, my best boo shared with me Björk's new song Crystalline, and I thought it appropriate to share it with you all. Yip!

DIYFS Tie Dyed Linen Pillowcase

After spending countless hours combing the floors of ABC Carpet & Home for something as beautiful as it was cost-effective, I deemed the search hopeless and left each time with a light bag and a heavy heart. Over my many futile trips to the store, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make the things that I want. No more siren calls for me. This is entry number one. The pillowcase...
Hope you like!

It seems I was too busy enjoying picnics on Governor's Island and getting tan in the Rockaway's to post my American pride and wish you all a happy holiday and summer! I hope you all had an amazing long-weekend!

White Fairy Tale Love Ball

Natalia Vodianova is preparing a fashion show for her Naked Heart Foundation. Due to take place tomorrow night at Valentino’s Chateau Wideville outside Paris, forty-five top designers will show and auction off they're own fairy tale creations. Natalia is wearing Donatella Versace's kokoshnik dress below. Now this is something I would looooove to see and have and keep forever. Wouldn't you?

I'm not sure there is anything quite as purely gorgeous, sexy, edgy, timeless and interesting as Balmain's 2012 Resort collection. I had to list them all because I couldn't find a word to sum them all up. I suppose the word is, Balmain. Really, I'm awestruck. Every look is perfection. See for yourself.
