just for fun

Since I'm in such a silly mood today ...

The original: Stephanie, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Naomi, Hollywood, 1989 by Herb Ritts

The Jackass Crew's interpretation photographed by Robert Trachtenberg for Rolling Stone Magazine. Oh my goodness, those Jackass boys are ridiculous and, I'll admit it, hillarious (and, sometimes, super gross)!

Which do you prefer?

This SOUVE tote bag made me giggle, because seriously, who can afford a Birkin? Check out some other silly totes on Refinery29.

So, I checked my email this morning, as one does, and opened up my Moda Operandi Newsletter and saw this. Damn girl. That's all I can say. This is probably the sauciest one-piece I've seen in a long time (though, obviously, the model doesn't hurt). MO is featuring a presale of Lisa Marie Fernandez's modern, sporty suits. The suits, made of a fancy neoprene, are suppose to be super flattering. What do you think? Would you wear this suit? Check out some of the other suites here. I really like the Genevieve and Jane styles.

yay, summer!

Summer is finally here and I can't wait to sit on a beach, read a good book, wear pretty dresses and drink refreshing cocktails. What about you? What are you looking forward to this Summer?

P.S. How cool would it be to spend a Summer in one of these?

let's cruise

How pretty are these ladylike looks from Jason Wu's 2012 Cruise Collection? I love the pops of coral. The clothes are both masculine and feminine with their tailored silhouettes and whimsical fabrics. It would be a dream to wear these beautiful clothes all summer long.

Don't you love his contemporary take on evening wear? Simply lovely.

My sister and I fell in love with Christian Bale when he played Laurie in the 1994 remake of Little Women. He's still got it.

preen resort

Preen's Resort 2012 Collection is full of flowered fabrics and bright colors—a far cry from their traditional black. The collection is comprised of lovely silk floral prints, bold colors and Japanese touches, but maintains an emphasis on their impeccable tailoring.

Isn't the color combination of this pink top and red skirt gorgeous?

I adore this pencil dress. The silhouette is very feminine and simple, but the leopard collar ads just the right touch of fun.

You can pre-order the Preen Resort 2012 Collection on Moda Operandi.

I would be completely happy to spend all summer in one of these fringed hammocks, preferably somewhere tropical with a ridiculous looking cocktail!

This one, from Anthropologie's May Catalog, is my favorite.

Well, actually, this one is my absolute favorite ... but, sadly, Anthropologie is no longer carrying it.

Aren't they pretty?

stella's country home

I was exploring VOGUE Online and came across the prettiest pictures of the country home that Stella McCartney shares with her husband and four children.

Aren't the grounds stunning?

Complete with a tepee and a rowboat!

What a fantastic place for her four precious children to grow up.

If I were her, I don't think I could  ever leave such a beautiful place. Isn’t it a dream? I think we all need our own little place in the country ... don't you agree?

You can read about Stella's garden and drool over the other photos here.

I was going through my daily routine of checking out my favorite blogs yesterday and came across the sweetest illustration by Ashley Goldberg on Oh Joy. Isn't it lovely?

Here are a few more of my favorites:

please use a coaster

We bought this hilarious MJ-inspired coaster at Beams (my favorite department store in Japan). Isn't it brilliant? Every time I look at it, I have a laughing fit!

Now, I want all of these:

You can purchase your very own here.

win a trip for two to paris!

Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day! is giving away a 7-day trip for two to Paris, France! I'm totally entering. You can enter here. Maybe you shouldn't though, because you'll lower my chance of winning. I joke--enter away!

secret garden

So, I was flipping through the June issue of VOGUE magazine and my jaw dropped when I came upon author Bella Pollen's amazing country home (I know, a country home? Fancy!).

"The property was in a state of beautiful decay the day we first stumbled across it—overgrown, lush, neglected for oh so many years."

Isn't it lovely?

This 19th-century regency sofa was reupholstered with a vintage Russian flag!
