gentlemen marry brunettes

i grew up on 'gentlemen prefer blondes' and always loved jane russell's sassy brunette character. and being a fellow brunette i loved her even more. just found out she went on to film 'gentlemen marry brunettes' afterwards, which is now on the top of my must see list. here are some of my favorite shots of the beauty. rip ms. russell.

ya ya girls

obsessed!! i stumbled upon this brilliant bag line, es n yaa, while looking through babel fair's facebook page. Es n yaa was started by a mother-daughter duo in April 2009 and is all about 100% African made fabrics and supporting Ghanaian families through their beautiful accessories. i am furiously researching where i can buy one of these for my upcoming summer trips!! and i won't stop until i find them.

the folks over at bird just posted this amazing shot...i want him! and gary looks way cuter on this rainy day than i did, i'm jealous. plus, my man shares the same name with this cutie pie. it only makes sense that i should have both!!

bonnie babe

i adore bonnie cashin's illustrations and want to save my lunch money to buy like 10 and hang them on my wall. back in my high school days i worked at coach, where ms. cashin created coach's women's line and transformed the brand in 1962. there were some amazing bonnie cashin illustrations in the back room that i was tempted to steal every time i went to work.

a gnome named gnorm

i am so not sure if human hands made this little cutie or if santa's elves snuck in one night and knitted this little christmas miracle up. either way it is probably one of the cutest things i have ever seen. and it's on sale at etsy. i just wish this same person made miniature pink flamingos too.

holy rollers

i'm taking up hair curlers this spring. i used to have a cute vintage yellow set, but think i may trade it in for the updated model by babyliss. set it and forget it.

cat lady chic

i love this necklace. it looks like something i would have had in my dress up bin back in the day. the photography is by Laura Winthrow and styled by Ariella Villa. Where can I get this gem??

four and twenty black birds baked in a pie

I just came back from Four and Twenty Black Birds - the ultimate pie shop here in Brooklyn. I had been hearing about this place for the past year or so, saw it on the Food Network and various food blogs. And they were right, Four and Twenty Black Birds boasts the best slice of pie I have ever had. I went in with my Mom and sister, splitting a slice of Salty Caramel Apple Pie and Black Bottom Lemon Pie. Yum yum yum. Nom nom nom. Served alongside of a huge dollop of freshly made whipped cream was delightful. You can tell with your first bite that the Elsen sisters are making their pies with only fresh, real ingredients. Real butter, real sugar, fresh fruit. Again - yum yum yum, nom nom nom. Got get yourself a slice now!

my new favorite movie: Sparkle. A film set in Harlem in 1958 follows three sisters, Sister, Sparkle and Delores through the trials and tribulations of fame, drugs and fantastic leopard pants as seen in the video below. The wardrobe is glamorous and gritty. The music is by Curtis Mayfield so you know it's gonna be good. It's available on Netflix instant view and I highly recommend checking it out. enjoy.

best in show

i have a new dog crush. malachy the pekingese. i mean, look at him. back in the day i took one of those silly personality tests, 'which dog are you?', and low and behold turns out i'm a pekingese. looks like it's a match made in heaven.

only girl in the world

i am lusting over rihanna's only girl in the world video. i die for the wardrobe - the bustiers, ruffle trimmed shorts, blue fur stole, the fringe skirt and bra top. not only is the wardrobe amazing, but the setting is something out of a dream. the pink hued wheat fields, multi colored flower fields, and swing that glides over it all. it all reminds me of a fashion twist on Robin Williams' 'What Dreams May Come."

bein' in love with your ass ain't cheap.

the grammy's were on last night, an award show i always look forward to because the fashion is turned up a notch and the performance costumes are always fun to look at. last night there were a few highlights that I would most definitely save my lunch money for. and then i'd paint my sidewalk red and do a strut. gwyneth paltrow, bless her heart, but her shoes were absolutely amazing and took my attention off her not so amazing vocal skills. She better thank her Christian Louboutin Futura Heels for that distraction.

i don't know about you, but i think this summer is going to be the best one yet. maybe it's because i am so over winter and the cold. i was out with some friends last night and got to talking about all the fun things we're going to do this summer. trip to montauk, weekend at asbury park, baseball games, long preparation for all these summer get aways these are the things I need to get the game going.
