Friday Things….

Made a quick trip into Dallas today to re-stock my favorite of all t-shirts.  The Sexuali-Tee from American Apparel.   Has anyone else tried these?  I hate the name, but the shirts are great.  They are made of viscose so they're really swingy and drapey.  They are also quite large, if you were petite, they [...]

Beautiful rooms via I just saw the trailer for the new version of Grey Gardens with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore.  I've really had mixed feelings about turning a documentary into a movie, especially this one, but after viewing the trailer, HBO may have just pulled it off.  Drew does a dead on Edie, and [...]

Sweet Dreams

This is the most luxurious bedroom.  I love the polished concrete floors and fur throws.  It has a decadent but primal feel at the same time…. I could definitely sleep here.  I just finished painting my own bedroom yesterday, and I will post some photos later.  Bedroom photo via Desire to Inspire–one of my favorite [...]
