I'm thrilled that I came across this lovely little site, Felix Doolittle. From stationary to paper weights and baker's labels, they personalize everything that would be on your desk at home (or in the kitchen!). These return labels are my personal fave.
Theory is always chock-full of classics that never go out of style. Anything blue, white or with stripes are my staples, and their latest additions don't disappoint. I hope my girlfriends in New York are taking full advantage of the Theory sample sales I once took for granted- they are nowhere to be found in L.A.! So for now, I'm stuck shopping Theory resort here.
I love wide-plank wood flooring and panelling. Apparently Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek, does too! These wallpaper sheets are made to look like real scrapwood, and I'm obsessed. I'm not usually one for accent walls, but one of these babies would look pretty rocker-chic in a nice little nook. Shop here.
How rad is this American 'flag' at the new Converse shop in New York? I was checking out my very talented friend's blog, deshëco, and came across this newly designed store (it's Converse's second retail shop worldwide).
The real game changer with the store is their sneaker printers. After deciding on a pair of kicks, consumers can scroll through thousands of designs on iPads set-up throughout the shop. Your new kicks are printed right there on site, all while you wait. Cool, innovative retail experiences get me every time.
Be sure to check out Rob Dalton's blog, deshëco,here.
How can you not love these images of the Mad Men cast featured in Rolling Stone magazine? Old news, I know, (from in the August 31 issue), but the nostalgic, behind-the-scenes images still manage to capture the essence of an era long lost. View more here.
What: The French fragrance company’s new(ish) roll-on gel cologne
Why bother: Roll-on gel is lighter than spray. The French fragrance house has designed a 20-milliliter roll-on that delivers four of its classic scents in a tiny glass bottle. Diptyque says the metal ball "intensifies the fresh nature of its colognes, leaving a delicately dosed scented veil on the skin."
Scent: "L’Eau," has hints of Italian green mandarin, grapefruit and orange blossom; "Hesperides," spiked with bitter orange, lemon and African rosemary; "Neroli," which has Italian bergamot, Indonesian patchouli and tarragon; and "Tarocco," smells like ginger, saffron and Bulgarian roses
This month's Elle Decor features the mother/daughter team from M. Elle Designs (based here in California) and their creation of this chic and rustic home. It's not too cutesy, but warm, cozy and has the right amount of masculinity. Love.
