sienna farms

 one of the great pleasures of living in our fair city of boston is the plethora of farmers markets..
 in fact, i work by one in dewey square, and live by the copley market!  one lucky lady.
 the other day i could not stop about getting there on time..i just had to have some tomatoes from sienna farms for my supper.  oh sienna're going to make me a country mouse...well not really.
but seriously, this farm's produce rocks my world..everything not only looks is delicious..and that's saying something.

do i need to say more?  gorge-y!

oh yes..i do.  they opened a shop of their own in the south end.  i am going to have to go there and see it for myself!

High Lawn Dairy

 lately we have been only going to Barrington accross the street for our coffee..even though we have a whole lot of choices.  as soon as, lawrence said it was like drinking candy..i was sold!
the barristas at Barrington said it was the milk from high lawn dairy in lee mass that made all the difference..and though i am not sure..looking at the dairy's website, and all the start to think..maybe there's something to all the stuff about chemical/hormone free/grass fed rhetoric.
 i mean the taste is unbelievable.  in fact, it makes all the other ice lattes in town taste know..nothing good.

oh high lawn've ruined me forever.

emmy red carpet rap

i guess i wasn't the only one who saw the emmy carpet themes this year, and my fave of the night was all the Yellow!  i know that despite the slight fashion don't on the ladies..noted well in other that clare's floopy lanvin was a big no no..and that julianne should have done more for the boobage in the dior..bla bla..i on the other hand just loved the YELLOW of it all.  how fun.  i just saw the sunny happy shade , and it made me there.

 oh..btw..these pix are from the NYT coverage...and i love the color blocking theme..such a perfect summation of the night..the outfits really did fall into color/texture of my abso-faves was tina fey just killing in the BURGUNDY!!  vivenne westwood..i that her body?  she looks so amazing!  super perfect..the hair, skin,dress, jewels..and i just love her!  oh..and before i let go of this is worth noting the bizarro ashley do..what is up ashley?..isn't that a bit TOO tall?  ok well..she is a judd..jes' sayin'.  ps..yes..kelly osborne in the purple hair..check. my take is that as lovable and va va va sofia is..her fashion is obvi & predicti-pageant-y.and speaking of yeesh..heidi..hello?  all matchy and grecian goddess..but 2 leg slits?  i thought we had better taste!
 padma the orange is kill-er..the style not so much..but what-evs..she looked beautiful.  and i was a huge fan of ginnifer goodwin's look, the whole thing was fun..particularly that pixie makes her stand out in such a distinctive good way!
 i think edie falco's stella mcartney outfit is amazing..and i love that she just says she leaves this kind of thing to people who do it well..i got nothin for these other ladies.  oh..woopsy grecian wrap tulle..wha?
and then came Lena!  ouch..i bet you are getting raked my little friend..and o how i do love you..this miucca says upholstery..and Concept-y..but this look is SO not your friend..BUT..her eyes and new hairdo were so pretty..every time they cut to her last night i was all..omg she looks grreat!!  and it was only in the am that i saw the who-ole dress.  sorry know she is gonna kill it next time!

i am not sure what happened to me..perhaps i am just a complete fashion victim.

but ever since ms elements of style herself erin gates mentioned it

i have done a complete 180 on burgundy..that loathsome now so totally on my radar.

i never had a problem with this:

it was this kind of sad decor that made me weary..
                                                               but then came this!!
                                                   and now everything has changed!!

it doesn't hurt that all the best designers are using it on their already amazing as many amazing shades..

wha happened?

now i am in love!

j'adore Moonrise Kingdom

recently i went to see Moonrise Kingdom..Wes Anderson's new movie.

i had been wanting to go all summer.

it took forever to get there, but despite my anticipation,  the movie did not disappoint.

i am not sure how to put this..but i am in love with the look of these movies...and i know i am not alone.

wes is super particular about the art direction of his films.  i know he built the house "set" inside an empty linens and he was able to control eeevery detail.  this space is a fave...let me count the ways.  the braided rug, the record player, the collared yellow dress,  plaid lunch box, sailing themed drapes..window seat..ucchh..perfection.

don't get me started on the colors and the badges and patches on these scout uniforms.  yum.

suzy as the raven..just look at her!

whaaa?  yellow suit case..check!

make believe wish you could read aloud to your kids.

isn't bob balaban's outfit just amazing?  LL Bean Shoe Boots...these were HUGE in '78..fingerless gloves..come on!

                     i am so ready to look at it all over again..thank you wes anderson!

obsessed with soko

after hearing her voice in a pared down daniel johnson-esque arrangement accompanied by the ukelele on a lovely kate spade video (7 henrietta street), i grew posessed by the french singer soko.  she is that perfect mixture of talent and crazy.  jadore.
                                                     her song i'll kill her just kills ME.

oh you j crew!

what is there to say?

the big accessory piece is a must.

it really makes an otherwise boring outfit sing..right?

erin said today.."i just want to scoop it all up!"

i wore my new piece is a real beaut

maybe it says glitzy a little loud..but je t'aime that.

once more i say..more is more!
