Loving Anja's 1950's style with capri pants paired with leopard ballet flats, an easy enough look to emulate for spring. Meanwhile, Abbey always dons the best lingerie as outerwear looks, which isn't so easy for mere mortals;)
Domino Magazine's November 2008 issue remains one of my all time faves, and this spread is one of the reasons why. Stylist after my own heart Kim Ficaro and fashion director Lauren Goodman took the Turn this Outfit into a Room concept and ran with it. The result is an a gorgeous editorial along with Ariana Speyer's ability to convey the feeling of the pictures into words.
The Inspiration to take away:
1. Think refined yet effortless-not precious or "done" 2. Masculine and feminine mix 3. Lush Details-Accessorize your home 4. Combine Fancy with the informal

We are moving this weekend to a new apartment, but things have gotten a little complicated. We may have found a house to buy. To further complicate matters, the realization of putting a permanent hold in our current city has us questioning if we really want to live here. Words like Los Angeles and New York have been bandied around in the last 24 hours, but starting over in a new city in this economy is daunting. A lot to think about this weekend.
In the meantime here is another room I'm pinning to my virtual moodboard as inspiration. It is from O at Home, Oprah Winfrey's shelter magazine, which folded in 2008. What I'm taking away as inspiration from this room is the leather chair, black tables, wood stool, fur rug and print blanket.
Below are some detail shots and another view of the room:
I wasn't going to post the new J.Crew items that I though were ridiculously overpriced, but than I wouldn't have much of a wish list. To add insult to injury the catalog made me sad and miss Los Angeles so very much this morning.
I was really surprised by the price on this item as well. They are saying it is handknit wool, but I think this is one of those trendy items that you'll be able to find at a better price point, especially if you are looking for cotton and unlined. Carrie Crochet Sweater, $188
I'm assuming this sweater is an ode to Isabel Marant, and I like it a lot. Like I want all of the colors a lot. But only if J.Crew has figured out their pilling issues. Cashmere Isabel Sweatshirt, $228
This sweater intrigues me, and not just because it looks like it is priced $200 too much. I like the idea of studded stripes, but it could be really good or really bad. Jacquette Sweater, $395
Bonus shot of the Isabel Cashmere Sweatshirt, and just because I like the whole outfit really:
1960's Mini Dress-Antique Flea Market Wool Tights-Falke Tribal Feather Necklace-Forever 21 Chanel Mary Janes-Saks Fifth Ave Rodarte Ring-Capitol
I thought I had lost this vintage dress but found it this morning balled up behind my racks of clothing. I last wore it to a party during New York fashion week and it has a lot of good memories attached to it.
And look, I'm wearing a necklace! I don't buy a lot of new jewelry, but I loved the long length and bohemian feel of this piece.
Oh, and you'll probably be seeing more of my vintage hat collection sneaking into pics because I'm tired of lopping off my head.
