white after labor day

I always thought the idea of not wearing white after labor day was so ridiculous, especially since there's nothing I love more than crisp and chic winter whites.

Street style: pulling off a raccoon hat

I really adore this look, seen on Stil in Berlin. I think it's amazing that this works, or that a raccoon hat can work at all. Maybe it's the modesty and understated chicness of the rest of the outfit that just makes the hat not only work, but totally necessary.

Get prepared to need

In case you missed the buzz around Marimekko's new concept store, here are some amazing pieces. Hope you're ready for some serious dress envy!

Coming this week: Shoes

Tons of shoes and boots coming to the shop this week. My personal favorite are these 1970's butterfly snow boots.

Oh, and be sure to check out the shop today as I'm having my huge 1-year anniversary sale. It ends tomorrow, so if there's anything you've had your eye on, now is the time to get it.

Photobooth Portraiture

Be sure to go over to Square America to check out the series on Photobooth Portraiture. These are some of my very favorites from the series, but the site is stuffed with other great series, including one you can't miss on hairstyles.

I think my favorite here has to be the last one, where only the forehead and ponytail of a little girl obviously too short for the photobooth poses anyway.

Holiday Shopping: New Babies

Nothing is more fun than shopping for babies. They love whatever you give them, and it's an excuse to give often impractical but always adorable gifts. Fortunately this year, I have a new nephew for whom I'm very excited about gift-giving this holiday season.

Here are some of the items on the top of my gift giving wish list for new babies. Of course, please check these listings to make sure they are baby-safe before buying.

Top to bottoms: uptownurbancraft, littlealouette, iluvsugar, zuriny, naturalstar, infusion.

New to the shop: Hats

Many new hats are coming to the shop this week. Here are a few of my favorites that are already up--my favorites have to be the cozy winter fur hats, though there's something great about the totally impractical headpiece that only exists for reasons of loveliness, eschewing all notions of practicality.

Cozy shades of autumn: rustic vs. homey

Tis the season for all things cozy. I've been gravitating towards these two color palates this season--rustic browns and silvers, and cranberry with ruby red.

Set 1, clockwise: obscurio, touchthedutch, madeinthehv, hindsvik
Set 2, clockwise: hazelandhunter, rubypress, f2images, infusion
