Rev your engines.

With this Fall weather, I've been getting a chance to wear my leather jacket I got in BsAs in 2007. I love love love it, and now I'm thinking I really would like another. My capricious taste tends to change at the drop of a hat, but at the moment these are my fav looks:

Priorities, Bluefly

Twenty8Twelve, Bluefly

Joie, Shopbop

Oh the leaves, they are a changin'...

We are finally having a little Fall weather in NYC...and I couldn't help but snap a few pictures this weekend of the changing leaves. Its so gorgeous. Now if we can just get it to stay like this 'til Turkey Day...

How pretty is this tree lined street? It was so quiet too...really dreamy. I'll take this brownstone please.

Oh and an Episcopalian church I can visit right across the street, how convenient!

Oh thank goodness, I can buy all my hand crafted housewares here...

The last great thing about this neighborhood (sorry if I'm boring you) is the High Line. This is truly one of the neatest things I've seen in NYC in awhile... Basically, it's about 1.5 mi of former elevated railroad track that was redeveloped into a 'greenway' and opened as a city park on June 8 of this year. The park literally runs right through Chelsea; its so neat to see the juxtaposition of the city life/plant life. They've really done an incredible job with this urban garden, excuse my amateur pictures, they hardly do it justice.

You can even see the Statue of Liberty!

Was looking for some portraits and stumbled upon these by Vincenzo Rizzo on Etsy. They are really inexpensive, and I think that one resting on a console or mantel would look cool. Or I may just come off as a total creep.

To Do List

I continually hear of things I really want to see and do in Austin, Texas (I am embarrassed to say I still haven't visited even after living within driving distance). One among seemingly thousands of reasons to visit Austin is the Fritz Henle photography collection at the Harry Ransom Center.

“Rebel in the Making: Schoolboys Exercising, with One Eating an Apple” (1936) by Fritz Henle.

“Frida Kahlo at Xochimilco, Mexico” (1937) by Fritz Henle.

“Sailor on the Brooklyn Bridge, New York City” (1950) by Fritz Henle.

I've Done It

I've seen a lot of houses. And I've said a lot are my favorite. But this house by M. Elle Design really is my favorite house. I feel like it defines the rustic contemporary look (and I'm pretty sure I coined that term, for future reference). I apologize for the plethora of pictures, but each room was worth posting!
