1. Mortified Short Bus. For some reason I can’t figure out how to post a YouTube video on my blog (don’t make fun of me! I’m technologically stunted!), but you should check out this video. My friend Lucy introduced me to it, and I LMAO watching this piece. Ah, the good ole’ days.
Alice Temperley for Go! Target. Bringing designers to the plebs—does it get any better than that? I love some of her stuff (not all of it, but nobody’s perfect). Isn’t this a cute dress? I’m not sure how it would look on me (I get self conscious if I look too Victorian), but I’m loving it. Wow, I’m going to have to get myself to a Target STAT.
3. ART!!! I was just reading A Cup of Jo (a fabulous blog, BTW) and she posted about this new online gallery/art store called 20×200. There are some really lovely photographs up on the site and they are selling prints for $20! I just might buy something… well, maybe in a few years when I have more wall space. But seriously. “Making art lovers into art collectors.” This is awesome.
4. Portland, Oregon. Read this New York Times article and you’ll be as in love with Portland as I now am. Affordable, beautiful, and amazing food? What more could a girl ask for. Not to mention good music, which is my lifeline. Oregon has given us The Dandy Warhols, and The Thermals, to name a few. Not to mention Portland has a nonprofit Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls, which I would give my right leg to attend. How cool is that?!!
When Andy and I went to Madison, Wisconsin, I was incredibly impressed with all the locally grown produce and everything. Yummo! We had quite the stimulating conversation about the importance of organic food VS, (more specifically), locally grown produce. I’m not going to get up on my soapbox or anything, but check out LocalHarvest.org and look for a farmers market near you!
