The Beauty in the Details

Yesterday Cameron and I spent the day in Fort Worth celebrating our anniversary and checking off a few items from my architecture bucket list. It was architecture nirvana!


If you know nothing of the World Cup (as I didn't and mostly still don't) you must watch Men In Blazers. They're perfectly edited five minute intros into the various team competing this year in Brazil. Complete with funny commentary (British accents!), great graphic design and cupcakes, enjoy!

Haute Bjorn

This look from Comme des Garcons is baby carrier (minus the baby), over pinstripe suit over leggings, basically it's wonderful.

Just Ugly Enough to Work

Once in a while I glance at a few of the shows from fashion week and have my usual favs that I look at (Thakoon, Narciso, Zero Maria Cornejo, etc). Usually I find a few things from 3.1 Philip Lim that I think are cool, but this season I was really intrigued by his whole collection. The word that kept coming to mind was "ugly" and yet the close weren't boring or banal or tacky, they were ugly done in such an interesting way. It got me wondering if I had gobs of cash would I go for the interesting ugly look or play it safe with things that look "good" and are a bit boring. And as soon as I typed the last sentence the words of Garth popped into my head.
