this made me smile this morning when I got the Barneys email blast announcing their Albert Maysles glasses. If you're a fan of Grey Gardens Documentary then I'm sure you have a smile on your face as well right now.

Granted, the Maysles Brothers did quite a few other documentaries such as the iconic "Gimme Shelter" about the Rolling Stones but Grey Gardens is nearest to my heart.

The Albert Maysles by Barton Pereira glass shape is available in a variety of frame colors – as well as sunnies to readers [I'm sure they could be turned into RX as well] $350-$365

If you have the opportunity to see the photography documentary featuring Albert on Ovation TV catch it - he's a lovely man. They replay the show a couple of times a year.

Elizabeth Olliver

I recently discovered this company Elizabeth Olliver - which is brilliant and totally my style

the abridged version? essentially they believe we want simple clothes to simplify life [um yes!] and by the twist of a bangle or the change of a shoe it can go from day to night. Dunno, fairly brilliant if you ask me.

Ms. Elizabeth hails from the hallways of Donna Karan Collection where she fell in love with fine fabrics which she now uses in her own collection.

sign me up ... prices are actually reasonable too. skirt and shirt $450, dress $280

I can't stop looking at this painting. It just makes me feel calm and happy all over. I found it over on Pinterest but I don't know the artist. if you know who she is [I think it's a she - a man wouldn't paint that right?] please let me know.

Thank you for the link! you can find the artist HERE

dream house

I don't want to give away the whole deal because it's HER post but I'm lusting over this house. I think I saw this recently on The Selby actually. The bed above the kitchen *genius* if you ask me.

I'll take your little dog too!

notice the knives inside the table as "knife rack" *BRILL*. Also, that little dog is guarding the counter at the end if you didn't peek it before.

bed above fridge = steps away from getting my snack on.

I would give up my right pinky toe to fly to NYC and see the McQueen Retrospective that just opened at the Met

video from his Spring 99 show with Shalom Harlow. Fashion shows will never be as artful again.
