$20 in my pocket

May 21, 2013

okay, so it was more like $50. but when that fiddy scores you a Club Monaco snap button chambray shirt, a pair of mint-condition BCBG heels, a super graphic woven clutch, and a kick-ass pair of red cowboy boots, you’re still slaying yourself some bargains in my book.

when it comes to me and the list of all that is covetable from Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe’s eponymous shop, the list is always winning. here’s a few more to swell the opposing ranks: hand thrown and kiln fired stoneware painted through fabrics with porcelain glaze.

decorative throwback

August 28, 2012

can’t stop staring at these whimsical woven hemp designs from aussie rug company Armadillo & Co. aptly named “marigold” and “dandelion,” they bring back fond memories of the few macrame relics that managed to survive the various parental purges of the 70’s and make their way into the domestic backdrop of my 80’s childhood. even to a seven-year-old, they carried the earthy tinge of nostalgia, hinting at a world where tube socks, wide lapels and vibrantly-hued cameros lived together in perfect harmony.
