Buying things has become what we do to waste time, but it feels horrible. I am a minimalist at heart, and an American with my time.
The Uniform Project, while old, is one of my favorite things in the world – because it caters to both.
So, I’m going to try it, albeit in my own way. No more new things. Just using what I already have in my life and not wanting something else. And getting rid of the random crap that’s making it feel overstuffed. And maybe then I can afford to take a trip, the ultimate extravagance.

Two posts today. One, selfish. One, selfless.
First the selfish, so that the selfless will live on longer.
I am in LOVE with Thom Browne’s newest resort collection.
Those two looks in particular. WHALES ON A BLAZER PEOPLE. oh, now that’s just lovely.

I don’t know how familiar anyone is about the company Nervous System. I discovered them a while ago, and I love it. I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t purchased it yet.
Now I see that they are doing more than just the bracelets and rings, and have forayed into home. Lighting and dishes. It’s so fun.
LOOK AT THESE CUPS.
Or these lamps:
I love these. So much. h/t Design Milk.

I just watched the Valentino documentary Valentino: The Last Emperor. V was reduced to tears multiple times in it, and by the end, I was right with him. It wasn’t that I was all that amazed with his work – I can appreciate it, but it isn’t always my style – it was the passion with which he did everything, and how happy it made him.
I dislike the word passion. I believe it comes from my old boss, who hated it as well, and his justification made sense to me. It is just a label that is constantly used, but loses it’s meaning the instant it is used. And it is used incorrectly most of the time.
I realized that there are two different ways of approaching life – through creativity, or through power.
One of those works. One of those doesn’t. Fashion is the perfect example of trying to understand that concept, and Iris Apfel is one of my favorite subjects.
