what's with the weather?

Last night on my way home, I stopped into the Soho Apple Store to hear graphic designer Keetra Dean Dixon speak about her work. I was a fan just from seeing the work on her site, but after hearing her speak, its incredible how much thought goes into her projects and how conceptual they are. She is also very inspirational, and talked about how she got herself to create more work that she enjoyed creating vs. less exciting commercial work. I liked her idea of making one-a-days, where she gave herself 24 hours to complete a project even though she claims many took more that one day. Anyway, I've written about her before, but check out her site again

One day I'd like to have this wallpaper somewhere in my house. A bathroom perhaps. The original Martinique wallpaper as seen in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

I love the work of Wendy Bevan. She shoots polaroid instead of digital. The colors are fantastic, and the some of images (for Vogue Italia) remind me of what Cuba might have resembled in my grandparent's era.

Ara Starck, French painter and daughter of Phillipe shows off her style. From August 2008 Paris Vogue

I stole this image from Refinery29's twitter. I love it, and would like to wear things like this all the time!

I am obsessed with hanging stuff "gallery-style" and think i need to start collecting some frames. These are walls from Paul Smith's store in Notting Hill I think and one of Kate Spade's stores.

Clic Gallery on Broome Street is currently showing blown up journal entries of surfer Tony Caramanico. Each entry is dedicated to a location he surfed somewhere in the world, and reveals the weather, the mood, what he cooked, and who he was dating. I picked up the catalog for Frankie since one day he'd like to surf the world too and I'd like to come watch :)

One of the highlights of my trip was watching a bunch of kids pile out of the car above in the middle of a long drive to go bridge jumping. The wagon was bowling ball blue with a white top and perfect for driving to the beach.

I saw this book in Martha's Vineyard and I think I may need to add it to my collection. Summer perfected by the lens of Slim Aarons.

This lovely image comes from the Sartorialist, who is giving a workshop in Venice this week. His students were his subjects, and the photo is amazing. I am thinking of getting a new camera soon, any suggestions. I think I want a digital SLR. Your advice is welcome.
