The New York Giants aren't the only ones...

It's kind of funny --and can thank my father for it-- but I am a San Francisco Giants fan as well as NY Giants fan. If you didn't know, the World Series in under way at the mo, and the SF Giants are looking really good. Dyed beards and all. Pumpkim Ale and Buffalo Wings? Yes please.

FALLON.

I absolutely love the edgyand perfectly constructed pieces from Dana Lorez's Graphic line called Fallon.

Yes, my bags have bling.

The perfect bag in my mind is a cross-body vintage leather bag. I have several small ones for going out (perfect for dancing) and one larger (with more pockets) for work days. You can get vintage Mulberry, Coach, and Dooney and Bourke from most consignment shops for $5-10, and a bottle of leather clear for the same. I like to add a little bit of 'flair' to my bags as well. On the top bag (Dark Blue Coach) I stuck on an old bee pin with an onyx eye. The bottom bag was missing a zipper pull so I added an old skeleton key,which I have MANY of from the house I grew up in. Recently though, I purchased a dozen rabbits feet in various colors, and handed them out to friends. If you see this trend coming back, just remember you heard it here first ;)

Ahern.

Dark Colors are done right in this English home owned by Gemma Aherns, which happens to be decorated by her sister Abigail Ahern<--check out the sight for quirky beautiful home stuff.

Michele Varian.

I am a big fan of Michele Varian's eclectic and funky home decor and furnishings. Her story is quite lovely, and if your in the NYC area please stop by her flagship store on Crosby Street.

Halloween.

(My inspiration for Patsy)
+
I cannot believe Halloween is this coming Sunday. Thus, it is time to buckle down, carve a pumpkin (or not), get festive, and start searching for my costume (at Urban Jungle in my hood). I played with the idea of being a "Sexy" Bedbug for humor's sake, but Rachel and I decided to go as a team: The Absolutely Fabulous, absolutely insane, absolutely wasted British women, Patsy and Edina (Eddy).

I'm hungry.

What Katie Ate is a feast for the eyes (and belly).

With a whisky on the rocks.

The Masculine, refined and luscious Gild Hall. The newest Thompson hotel in NYC.

Truth.

(But please, also seek knowledge.)

Brainstorms from the dollhouse.

So begins a Side Project. More to come.

Can you tell that I've been into blues and greens as of late?
Oh, and also white?
Ok I'm just torn.

I love The Selby.

Todd Selby (of The Selby) takes a peek into the homes of creative people all over the world. I love the documentary style he approaches the photos. You see deeper into the lives and personality of the homes (people+house) with his detailed, real, images. (Images courtesy of The Selby)
