Insanely awesome. Stella McCartney, always clever with materials. Find them here.
I’m pretty sure I NEED this… though if I were smart, I wouldn’t buy the striped one, because that pretty much rules out wearing it with half of my wardrobe.
Wouldn’t these Ferm Living wallpapers look amazing in a nursery? Super sweet and not too babyish.
I didn’t get too into decorating Lou’s room before she was born. I frankly found the idea of “doing the nursery” kind of cheesy. Now that she’s here, though, I quite like hanging special things in there, making curtains, etc. Time to wallpaper?
and encourage good design for kids. This Gap rashguard is the cutest ever. I love a good Breton stripe, and this looks like a 20′s swim costume.
I’m more than a little obsessed with Brie Harrison‘s prints. Ah-mazingly folksy and modern at the same time. These would work really well with our black & white print sofa pillows…
How sweet are these wooden platform sandals? And at $69, I don’t have to feel guilty about the purchase!

Never thought I’d be so excited about a doorstop. But the little stacks of cardboard Willy rigs to keep some of the doors open in our old, Brooklyn building are just not that classy. And now Lou is starting to want to open and shut doors and it would be nice to have something to keep her little fingers from being slammed in one of them. These doorstops by Thorsten Van Elten look great and are $14. Win win.
I was poking around online trying to find a dining table and chairs for our apartment. It’s time. We’re starting to think about selling our place, and that seems like a good excuse to finish things up around here. You know, finish decorating to sell. That’s a completely backwards logic, isn’t it?
I came across this table & chairs set from Dutch designer Moooi (chair pictured). It brings a serious smile to my face. And since I can’t keep a damn plant alive, I ought get some pretty in my life somehow…
I wanted a turban. Like old ladies wear. You know, a little Grey Gardens chic.
This one from Eugenia Kim at Catbird is pretty rad. But at $154, I was hoping for something a with a more cheap and cheerful price tag.
I totally thought I’d find something vintage. Something like…

But I happened upon it in the oddest of places… or maybe not, considering I just said said I wanted the “old lady” look. Talbots may have gotten a J.Crew facelift, but you can’t take the old lady outta the place.
This photo does it no justice, but cocked a little to the side, this is true turban heaven for $44. Not at all costume-y, and with a pin on the front, super cool.
