bemuse · where are they going?

time square.

land of the...

...prom dress?

maybe she was part of some photo shoot or hidden camera show? 


but jokes on her since patrick clearly stole her limelight! 

but she wasn't the only one a bit...overdressed.

work it.

muse · 3 shout outs

allow me to indulge myself a bit. (again.)
 happy birthday to my husband! the greatest, sweetest, sexiest, funniest, most stylish guy i know.
yes, yes, he's appeared on my blogareedoo 2.5 times so far: here, here and 1/2 here.
he's awesome and inspires me with his outfits on a daily basis.
perhaps i should start a blog dedicated to him? (ew, ew, i know. sooo cheesy. blech.)
anyway. today is his birthday: wish him happy day!
also, to give you something pretty to look at: below are works featuring TRISTAN from two of the most creative ladies i know. 
they blow me away.
please feel free to stalk them!
i worked with TINA VAUGHN to create this gift for our anniversary. she's an incredible watercolor painter and graphic designer and one of my bestest friends. (lucky me!)
the inset picture was shot by THE ANDRIA LINDQUIST: a seattle-based photographer with the most amazing body of work. (be ready to get lost in her blog for hours at a time.)
happy monday all!

i love NY just as much as the next diva.
but i think that i'd make one adjustment to this flag.
"welcome to LIFE..."

muse · unexpected transportation

waiting at a red light when a business casual, khaki and button-up clad...lad...rolls by on a longboard.

"whaaat? quick, turn right! follow him!"

and since my husband is willing to indulge my weird stalker tendencies, i give you: 

Man on Lunch Break on Long Board.

yeah! maneuver around those boring walkers.

thanks for being in the driver seat this day, babe!

friday find · glitter!

they call it the 'GLITTER SALE'! heard of it?

it's only the biggest sale Seattle's Goodwill has each year for the past 29 years!

i heard it's a great sale for low priced, gently-used, designer clothes, shoes and bags.
i've also heard that black friday is a great time to buy big-ticket electronics for a great deal.

that may be true.

but i'm the girl that gets up hours before the sun each day-after-thanksgiving and heads to target for everyday hairbands. [true story: black friday 2009- ran into a friend at target, 5am. he was balancing a giant flat screen tv in his arms and i was waiting to pay for my 20-pack of hair elastics: hey, they disappear so quickly!]

this year i decided to check out the super popular glitter sale.  got there at 715am (doors opened at 9am) and i was the 355th person in line. (turns out fellow style blogger, tina, got in line at 445am and was #54. these people are SERIOUS.)

while i did snag a cute marc jacobs summer-y dress (watch for a future Friday Find featuring this score), i have two AWESOME favorites that i must share immediately!


dear lara, why would you get rid of a shirt signed by a Jackson 5?!?!?


sure, it's as big as my wrist...

ah, glitter sale - i get it now!

muse · oh for the love of leaves

i love leaves.

like, more than may be socially acceptable.

i love when they're on trees.
and i get super excited when they turn bright red·orange·yellow and 
to the ground.
but i become completely obsessed when the fallen leaves dry up and get crunchy.

don't say i didn't worn you if you're walking with me and we come across a street of crunchy leaves. whatever we were saying, i am NO LONGER LISTENING.

i am now in crunch mode.
every step i take..CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH.

these leaves here: they're not quite crunch ready.

but THIS is the very street i live on.

yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes.

seeking inspiration · becoming king

the other day, i went to a titanic party. (yes, titanic. great theme and even better party!)

while there, i met JD.
and today - TODAY - he's doing something big.

a bit south of seattle, in tacoma, he's opening a menswear mercantile: he's curated a collection of phenomenal pieces, from designer to vintage and, starting today at 10am, the store opens for you.

inspiration found!

worth checking out today...and tomorrow...and next week.
meet you there.

meet JD. 

next stop: king of menswear.

muse · studs for a stud

on the way to nyc, the hubby leaned over and asked, "how would you feel if i started wearing heels?" 

i think he was joking. (i think.)

i told him i wouldn't like it so much and that was that. the conversation likely moved on to other, equally random musings from my guy. (questions that are really only posed when on a 6-hour journey thousands of feet in the air with a man yet unable to fall asleep.)

fast forward to people watching in times square.
and these.

spotted! er..excuse me..studded!

never. would. have. guessed. these. shoes. belong. to.

ok, so i'm still not jumping on board, immediately, if the husband decides heels are his new thing. (i still think he was joking!) but THIS guy was WORK.ING.IT!
