Pigeon Possible

This is the one! I ordered this today from Joe's Bike shop in Portland, Oregon. I can't wait till it arrives!! I opted for the leather saddle and dynamo light! I love the 1930's design and dare I say prefer this to my stolen Schwinn!

Schwinn Stolen!

My beloved bike was taken this week! I am soo bummed that it's gone.

Royal Ascot 2009

Royal Ascot is the social event of the British racing and Royal calendar. The real spectacle is the hats on ladies day, the more outrageous the better! Something must be said for the men too however, bowler and top hats from times past re emerge in polished splendor.

Wedding Dress Ideas

My two darling sisters from Scotland are visiting me in July and I am very excited to see them! I am planning to make a couple of appointments with some wedding dress designers in San Francisco. I am drawn to several different dresses, each posses their own pros and cons. Dancing is a must as we are having a traditional Ceilidh but I also want something fairly dramatic as the wedding is in a castle! This one is in the Vineyard Collection from Priscilla of Boston.

Shape of things to Come

I've been feeling round glasses for around a year now but have struggled to discover a designer making them. It appears this round lens trend is now hitting the main steam fashion circuit. I discovered these by Karen Walker, which I love but I may seek out thinner frames, more Lennon esque.....

Anna Ruth Henriques

I have fallen in love with these faceted black onyx and yellow gold earrings by Anna Ruth Henriques. The facets give the stones a surreal somewhat cubist look. The petite diamond accents add that fine sparkle finishing the piece exquisitely.
