Alexander McQueen

I’m kicking myself for foolishly waiting until this weekend to see “Savage Beauty” at the Met, and now I’m pretty sure I’m not going to swing it—five-hour+ lines yesterday, and it’s rainy. And I have a head cold.

As an insufficient consolation, I’ve been dreamily looking around at the various photos I’ve got tagged around the web.

Did you see the show?

“[Though cutting, I try] to draw attention to our unrelenting desire for perfection. The body parts that I focus on change depending on the inspirations and references for the collection and what silhouettes they demand.”

Resort 2012

It’s not too new, but since I discovered Pinterest, I’ve been obsessed. I’ve always loved covering my walls and surfaces with tear-outs, and Pinterest puts it all in one neat, virtual space.

I saw a cutesy little graphic on there that sums it up perfectly: Duh, Pinning!

They don’t make novel covers like they used to.

Craig’s Short List

This craigslist chair is rad! It looks like it’s in fine shape (maybe a little saggy in the seat), and leopard print on a classic Queen Anne silhouette is so perfect.

BEES at Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Technically, I’m allergic to bees, but for some reason, I’m also strangely fascinated by them and in love love love with honey.  This Saturday is the Bee Party at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and I’ll hopefully find a good-sport-friend to take a field trip with me for music and honey.
