fall at emersonmade

How cute is EmersonMade's new Fall lineup? I have a few of their pieces and would love to add a few more to my closet.

Super styling hounds tooth coat—I prefer the collar popped! These jeans are great too, and I really appreciate the fact that their jeans don't show any signs of awful, factory-made distressing (in really odd places, where jeans never, ever wear naturally).

This coat is based on a 1960's day coat, and you can remove the collar for two different looks. I have this skirt in mustard, but the red is lovely too. Bonus: it has pockets!

Oh, and they have a new Emerson Basics line: you can buy a bag of three tees, leggings, tanks, etc., for $38! Not bad, eh? I love the cut of the tank. Sexy, no?

P.S. Isn't Pedro THE cutest?

dream home

I used to live in Belgium, and whenever I hear the slightest mention of it, I get really nostalgic. So, when I was looking through Architectural Digest and came across these photos of a lovely estate in the Belgian countryside, I couldn't wait to share them with you!

Isn't it beautiful? The house dates from the 17th-century and the property even has a moat!

The interior, designed by Axel Vervoordt, is so airy and light, and that tub. Wouldn't you love to take a nice relaxing bath in that tub?

The dovecote (I'd never heard of a dovecote!).

The pool area is so serene and includes a Japanese minka that was transported from Japan and reassembled on-site. It encloses a shallow pool and sunken dining area. I know—it's rad.

I love this rustic earthen-floor barn. I want to curl up on one of those couches and read all afternoon.

Cherry on the sundae: they even have an underground gallery! I'm totally ready to move in. How about you?

If you'd like to read the entire article, you can do so on the Architectural Digest site.

levi's + chez panisse

If you plan on being anywhere near Maiden Lane this Wednesday, August 24, from 12:30 – 2:00, Levi's is hosting an event to celebrate Chez Panisse's 40th anniversary. I can't make it, but thought I would share the invitation.

Levi's will also be launching a limited-edition t-shirt collection designed by Alice Waters and others, including: David Byrne, Sofia Coppola, Dave Eggers and Maira Kalman.

No need to RSVP – this is a public event and lunch will be available on a first come, first-served basis.

All proceeds benefit the Edible Schoolyard Project.

You can read more details about the event here.

wish list for fall

I always look forward to the cool, crisp days of Fall and to adding something (or, in this case, nine things) new to my closet ... The fur collar trench would last forever and I would love to get my hands on a Coach Classics tote. Wouldn't the Bric's duffel be perfect to pack up for a cozy weekend away? Oh how I love wish lists!

1. Vanessa Bruno Sweater
2. Bric's Duffel
3. Sarah Swell Concrete Cuffs
4. Coach Classics Madison Tote
5. Philip Lim Skirt
6. Boy Band of Outsiders Fur Collar Trench
7. Lanvin Sneakers
8. See by Chloe Pumps
9. Vince Camuto Leopard Pumps

foxy friday

Ryan Gosling has been looking good. I haven't seen him in a movie since The Notebook—and he made me cry my eyes out. I've heard from friends that Crazy, Stupid, Love. is worth a watch, so I can't wait!

all business

How fun is this business card from TokandStok? TokandStock is an easy-to-assemble furniture vendor, so the fact that this card reassembles into a chair is quite appropriate. It will certainly spend more time in their customers' hands than conventional cards. Don't you think?

i want

I really want one of the Mini Crystal Bullet Necklaces from Sarah Swell. Actually, what I really want is one of everything on Sarah's site, but I'll settle for one thing. Because I'm practical. No. I'm not really. That's a lie.

My, oh my. Are these not two of the most gorgeous floral dresses you've ever seen? Moda Operandi is offering these and a few other vintage beauties, but, as they're vintage, they only have one of each ...

foxy friday

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He's come a long way since 3rd Rock from the Sun ... which I used to love watching, by the way.

I've been such a slacker lately ... I'm going to blame it on Summer and having too much fun! We're heading to Yosemite this weekend to camp with friends and to celebrate my friend Crystal's Birthday. Hope you have a lovely weekend!
