Consider The Oyster

Published in 1941, Consider The Oyster is MFK Fisher's nostalgic, sensory feast.  Part recipe book, part historical reference, part marine biology lesson and yet another part whimsical memoir, it is an afternoon's worth of reading (only 76 pages, including intermittent recipes) that I wish lasted forever.

3.1 Phillip Lim + Maison Martin Margiela

I think these pants are my number one, A list, most coveted, gotta have 'em item of the season...sigh.  I need a job first though.

Andy Lifschutz

These pieces are from Andy's Gaia collection.  The shape has been cast from a real crystal formation, but the interpretation is in the eye of the beholder.  Upon sight, comparisons people make range from sea urchin to celestial phenomena to a bird in flight.  I am the proud owner of a couple of Andy's pieces, hoping to grow my collection, one of which is my wedding ring that I couldn't love more!  Whatever people think it is, the reaction is always the same "Wow!" Thank you Andy for creating beautiful, special objects.

The Row

Cashmere and leather trimmed... almost $9,000?? I'm not one to balk at a price, but balk I shall! Wha!?!

The List: #1

Everyone seems to have their own version of a "Top 10" list, or a carefully edited run-down of the most indispensable items a woman should have in her closet...the must haves. Well, I was feeling a little left out and wanted to put in my two cents worth of opinion on the subject. What are those trustworthy pieces that everyone should have on stand-by that will never let you down and always take you where you need to go??  My #1: The Classic "Men's" Dress Shirt.  I say it in quotation marks because it doesn't really have to be from the men's department, but I find the over sized look of a boxy cut preferable. This style of shirt is clean, timeless and probably the most diverse garment(s) I own. I tie, twist, tuck, button, unbutton and layer these shirts into so many different looks, I literally wear one every other day. It doesn't have to be white, just as long as it's neutral (like a navy pinstripe or light gray), simple, and is big enough that it falls away from the body. If it's classic enough it can be worn with just about everything!

Maison Martin Margiela

The newest, and most anticipated, addition to my shoe family. I will promptly take them into my local shoe cobbler to affix a toppy sole that will hopefully prevent the leather-covered wedge from getting street-worn. The leather is flush to the ground, which creates that awesome illusion of a heel, but also makes for extra precautionary measures...I'll be so elated to have them I'll practically be floating anyway!
