I love a look behind the scenes – in a play, in a restaurant in a factory. I want to know what makes something tick. Cue my new favourite website The Makers by Jennifer Causey that gives studio tours of Brooklyn bakers, designers, painters, artists. I’m loving Shabd’s studio, so much light. And I want to go out and tie-dye everything now…

Do you live in Williamsburg? Lucky you! Go get your vintage Schwinn and cycle over to Mini Mini Market - I just dropped off some of those glorious Summer Clutches I mentioned a few days ago. I’ve long been a customer of theirs and Shoe Market, so I am very excited to be working with them with my new goods!

Racked NY asked my opinion on hidden shopping gems. This relatively unknown spot in my neighbourhood Atlantis Attic is phenomenal for great finds. You have to search a little, but it’s well worth it. Letterman jackets, suede booties, fur hats, silk scarves, you get the picture. For the whole article read it HERE
Yep, that’s me, according to Catherine Blair Pfander of NBC New York’s The Thread. Catherine came over to my work/live and we had some pecan pie from The Blue Stove and chatted about what I’m up to. Check the whole article HERE
A friend of mine Dave Nardone was showing me his updated website. And while he has done some beautiful work consulting with Kate Spade, this one he did for GOOD Magazine really appealed to me.
We don’t have Dodgeball in NZ and I kind of wish we did!
I’m very excited to announce that Fort Greene, Brooklyn will be the first to see the FW 10/11 drop of reid.damnit bags. Beautifully calm and serene boutique Thistle & Clover run by Camilla Gale and Rand Niederhoffer were the first to see the new collection and will be the first to stock up. Delicate jewelry, muted Fall knits, silky dresses and personal favourite footwear Marais flats.
And all I can think of when I think of the name of their boutique is Joan Jett and The Black Hearts singing Crimson and Clover, which isn’t such a bad way to remember where you need to dust off your credit card…
To quote Ronald Reagan “Surround yourself with the best people you can find…”- once again I totally lucked out with a fantastic team to work on my Fall/Winter Lookbook shoot.
