inslee haynes sketches

All sketches by Inslee Haynes.

She is so incredibly talented, each sketch tells a story of something far beyond fashion.
The last one in an NYC bodega particularly intrigues me, it's so spot-on!

my grandma's jewels

photos: my own

When I was home last weekend I had the chance to collect a bunch of jewelry from both of my grandmas. This is the epitome of vintage, of course, some of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen. I grabbed a punch of brooches (pins) because I feel like I can accessorize them with blazers, blouses, purses... there's so much to do with them! How cool is the one with the woman and her long hair? I have the perfect Elizabeth & James blazer for that one :) Another favorite of mine is the shoe clips... I can simply clip them on to any pair of shoes for some extra bling. The earrings with the palm trees on them have an Abalone shell on them, which is now illegal to sell in the US.

Just imagining where these pieces have gone and the story each holds is pretty crazy huh?

rolla denim

Designer couple Andy Paltos and Sarah Gilsenan have re-instituted the old (1970's) Australian denim brand, Faberge, into this brand new denim label. And I have to admit, there's nothing quite like a basic high-waisted skinny jean and a t-shirt, am I right?

So happy I made it to NY to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, and my birthday!! It was an odd night, but full of love and delicious food - which was so good I forgot to take pictures :( I wore a simple outfit, but not gonna lie - the jeans turned into yoga pants after the turkey and ridiculous amount of food I consumed. #sorryimnotsorry

I do want to bring some attention to the photo of me, with the fallen tree behind me and my pup Cody's backsideee peakin' through. Coming to Long Island after Hurricane Sandy is pretty heart wrenching, my house/family is OK but there are so many that aren't. The worst we have it right now is a few fallen trees, it gave us a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Seeing this first-hand makes it a lot different than hearing about it all the way in California. My heart goes out to all those affected.



It's that time of year again... BLACK FRIDAY, CYBER MONDAY, it's all happening. I'm more of a cyber Monday type of girl, biting my nails in the ease of my own home at the computer praying my size doesn't run out. But I have definitely been a part of the insanity of black Friday, have you ever been to Nordstrom rack? It get viscous. This year I've picked out all of the things I want, and suitable gift ideas beforehand. Note, the below.
...Never said it was a short list :) This really is the best time to do holiday shopping, check the sales at ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Shopbop and Net-a-Porter. Most importantly... HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! I hope you're all spending it with people you love and eat well!

I'll post some photos of mine tomorrow!
