art, Design Comments Off on A cute memory game, doubles as hostess gift, $30

Art Department’s illustration division has created a New York City-themed memory game featuring the work of  50 of their illustrators (including Joana Avilez, who did Lena Dunham’s book, Damien Cuypers, who often covers fashion week for T/the New York Times, Jordi Labanda, Happy Menocal, Vincent Moustache, and Bil Donovan). It costs $30 and comes in a cool box (with directions on how to play), and is sold exclusively at Project No. 8.

The box + what some of the cards look like:

The Spring Shoe

Fashion, Uncategorized Comments Off on The Spring Shoe

I know everyone is talking about the white sneaker for spring, but how could you possibly pass up these guys? Adidas Stan Smith. Black + animal print = urban perfection. $75. Going fast at Net a Porter (who has the best customer service, ever, btw). Note: sizing a little wonky. Go down at least 1/2.

A few of us are intrigued by this coat from – wait for it – Ann Taylor. $278, a bit pricey. Discuss.

The shoe you need is by a boot company

Accessories, Fashion Comments Off on The shoe you need is by a boot company

I’ve had these for a few years but nobody seemed to noticed until this month. Frye Carson Oxford – the right amount of on-trend with a higher-than-usual but not unfashionable heel. Awesome colors. Ages so beautifully you wouldn’t believe. I’ve got the black but am seriously pondering the smoke. One thing: I wore 1.5 sizes *smaller* in this shoe than I usually do. $238, buy it here.

Feather your nest

Earlier this year I went to a preview of holiday offerings at One King’s Lane. I completely flipped out over Kristen Leigh Baker’s feather wall hangings, which you can read about in my NYT piece today.  Her One King’s Lane sale is almost sold out now, but you can always peruse her own site. Some examples of her work are below, prices start around $250.

Your new favorite rolling pin…

Design, Fitness, Other Musings Comments Off on Your new favorite rolling pin…

…has nothing to do with food. It’s a smaller version of the foam rollers those of us with recurring IT band/tendonitis/assorted workout injuries have a love-hate relationship with. Tiger Tail makes smaller versions of foam rollers that will fit in a carry-on, a backpack, etc.   This has been life changing for me as a frequent traveler, and someone who lives in an apartment so small that using a full sized foam roller requires moving furniture. The 18 inch, shown here, is $34.95 here. There’s also a 11.5″ and a portable 8″ one that you can run with if necessary.

Because you can never have too many tote bags

Accessories, Fashion, Travel Comments Off on Because you can never have too many tote bags

I popped by El Cosmico while I was in Marfa last week. They were having some car show, which wasn’t great, but their shop was beyond great. Lots of things you’d need while staying on a veritable campground, and a bunch of things you just want. Like this bandana tote bag by RTH (El Paso native, now in LA). It’s not the most useful tote – no interior pockets etc – but it does look very cool and I loved the aged leather trim/handles. $95. See it, buy it, here.
