i might not have ever mentioned to you that i have had a HUGE crush on jason schwartzman ever since rushmore. there is just something so funny about him,
just watching him is funny, even if he's not doing anything. the faces he makes and his comedic timing is just too much.

have you been watching the new season of "bored to death"? oh i just love little ray!

also, any man that can consume as much white wine as i do and justify it the way his character can is truly a kindred spirit of mine.

what is your favorite jason schwartzman film? have you seen the short film he did with natalie portman as a trailer to the darjeeling limited. i think it's called "hotel cavalier". you should check it out if you've never seen it.

got spots?

so tomorrow is the first day of fall and while i'm not quite ready for the rain to begin full-force, i am looking forward to some new fall clothes. this year it is going to be all about black, camel and turquoise for my fall wardrobe (but yes, i will forever love you red, white and black).

and this little leopard baby is setting the tone! isn't it gorgeous? the fabric is the softest cotton velveteen. it's made by my amazing friend tasha polizzi, who spent many years honing her craft for a guy named ralph and is now making these beautiful creations on her own.

oh i can't wait to wrap up in this beauty. happy autumn everyone!

september issue

last week my coworker and i were talking and she said she was so excited because all of her september issues had begun coming in the mail and it was like christmas at her house.

i must admit, i do have a carrie bradshaw day when my issues start coming in where i sit at home and take them all in without ever leaving. i just love to see all of the new fall lines and ad campaigns.

then i started thinking that i need to rent the september issue again because i really enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes making of vogue's september issue. i highly recommend it if you haven't seen it yet.

so i just about died yesterday when i was on rdujour and saw the anna wintour and grace coddington dolls! these are so funny. it really does mean that you've made it when a doll is made in your honor.

of course my favorite is the grace doll. i love her simple style and crazy red hair. she really does make vogue what it is.

the cutest thing EVER!

today over at one of my favorite blogs, erin ever after, she posted one of the cutest things i have ever seen.

it's about the adventures of a little girl and her doll in paris called kiki and coco. the photos are just so sweet as you travel around paris with kiki and coco.

oh what it would be like to do this as a little girl. i must admit i'm a little jealous my doll dorothy and i never got to do this when we were little.

oh well, at least there is kiki and coco to do it for us!

go here for a slide show of stephanie rausser's beautiful photos.

maybe lulu and i can do this one day.
