One more thing..

I love Blaire Waldorf. Her wit and humor, her style and grace.

That's all for now...

Blair: I just need to know that, in this misbegotten corner of Manhattan, wealth, ambition, and moral laxity are still alive and well.

Weekend Awaits...

Happy weekend everyone! I am leaving (on a jet plane) from the not-that-cold weather to the oo-so-cold weather up north. Visiting my college roommate :)

Thank you for your comments and feedback this week. Always open to hear it all. If you go cords shopping this weekend (ahem, Maria), let me know the outcome!

Until Monday...
She looks too cool to be bothered...

One, please.
**and I don't mean the sweater.
Oh, fine, one of these two.

**again, not referring to the hoodie.

Falling in love with JCrew...

Went to JCrew the other day, as aforementioned re: corduroy pants. I used to work there a few years ago for a few I still have friends there. Snagged a new catalog along with my purchases. Zany Erin Wasson is on the cover:

the cover & a pic of her featuring my new cords!

Jenna Lyon has some tips for fall, and we should probably just go ahead and follow them.. found on the home page.

Google Analytics

I love tracking this blog. Do you know what this means? In less than one month I've hit 1,000 visitors!!!! Thank you :)

Love, honored blogger Ann.

Zany Selby.

So I am just seeing this site for the first time. And for the life of me I cannot remember how I came upon them...whatever. Deal with it :)

Basically, the Selby features photographs, paintings and videos by Todd Selby of interesting people and their creative spaces.

I checked out a couple posts. It's confirmed---Erin Wasson is a rare breed. She's featured throughout the upcoming JCrew catalog. (Drat, I meant to snap a photo of the one I picked up yesterday while on the cords hunt...Thanks Ivan! I'll post tomorrow...)

Cords. The Debate.

So I had a continuous debate about cords. I wanted skinny cords, that fit well in the booty and in the length. I toy with the idea of mustard yellow cords...Well, I'll just show you all of the ones I had stalked...and still stalk..

(2) JCrew ---remember these from here?
(3) JCrew

(4) Gap

(5) Gap
So I tried on (2) in the store. And they were...ok....but not that great....I thought about going to try on (1) but wasn't in the market for anything else there, since their sizing seems funky to me and my booty. Gap is going through something...a phase? A life change? Whatever it is, I am not sure if I want to get involved just yet...So I went back to JCrew and tried on (3). Let me tell you---the perfect mixture of comfortable/easy cords and GREAT fit! I got them in graphite!
Side Note: I also got fantastic toothpick black jeans at JCrew on sale...but for some reason they don't show up as sale online...
So what if I buy ankle pants and wear them as full length?? Sigh...

How to make a witches get rid of a cold

My mom swears by this do I. The ingredients in it are simple, but the effects are miraculous. My friend Corina got a cold 3 days before her wedding and fully recovered by the big day. I just made it over the weekend for Julie and she suggested it have a spot here. Get ready-the entire house will smell of garlic, but your nose will thank you later.

1 quart low sodium chicken broth
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp lemon pepper
(I also put a tsp of chili powder)
2 bay leaves
1 entire bunch of garlic (or around 15 pods)
1/2 bunch of parsley and cilantro, fresh

In a blender/Quisinart, add a little bit of the chicken broth with the garlic, parsley, and cilantro. Blend until completely pureed. Move mixture to pot with all other ingredients. Bring to boil, then turn heat to low.

Drink the brew (and breathe it in while doing so) 3-4 times a day until it is finished. If your nose is stopped up, do yourself a favor and buy a neti pot. It's totally weird and crazy, but deal with it because it will clear that cold up faster.

Oh Monday...Sip, Sigh...

Today I started Monday off on the right foot..and the left. Went on a fast walk with my friend KO which, not only benefits our hips and thighs, but our spirits as we catch up on the weekend and solve life's many problems.

(we looked very similar to these girls...)

Over the weekend I snagged my copy of The Sartorialist and began to pour through it, remembering Scott's old posts and marking some favorites.

Khaki update: Julie and I tried on all the Old Navy cargos and were NOT pleased. HELP! Just a few weeks until we join the elephants and we do not have khaki...
