virtually reality









hard to believe in 3 hours it will feel like i’m on another planet. i’m heading back to ny for thanksgiving and tying up loose ends that have been dangling for way too long. i’m excited about my new base and can’t wait to dig in. there’s something new around every corner. in fact i’m dying to get to this exhibit of 1920′s French Moderne pochoir paintings on exhibit at one of the fab local Deco musems:

on another note, i’m gonna try to keep miami with me back north, especially yoga which for some reason takes the rumble seat most of the time in ny. but the stars are aligning and it’s easy to do here. a blogging friend hooked up with me in paris and introduced me to Kim from Hip Tranquil Chick. now we’re going to do a podcast together next month! i’ll keep you posted:

i have a little time to play so thought i’d throw up a couple non sequitors:



these pretty shots of my chairs, (i mean designer couture dresses, shot by Rick Day), are coming out this winter in a serious mag. i probably shouldn’t post the pics before they do but i loved them!


ok one more thing: i first saw this site on ullabenulla and fell in love. now i just came across it again and just had to share: ashesandsnow and flyingelephants

new website discovery: the waywewore. you’d look so cute in these for the holidays. vintage=recycling!


back atcha from nyc god willing!

    Well it looks like yoga is paying off for you, those last two photos of you look great. (don’t we all wish those were us???)
