The September Issue

“The September Issue,” a documentary on Anna Wintour and Vogue premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film follows the Vogue editor and her team from January through August 2007 and focuses on the production of the September Vogue, which remains the largest magazine ever published.

**I cannot wait to see this!

Happy birthday to me!

These were an early birthday present from my darling, fellow shoe lover of a husband. Aren't they perfect. Grey suede (Jeffrey Campbell). I was bound and determined to wear them today....even in the rain. So I wore alternate shoes and changed into these when I got to work.

Maps.....and I don't mean that song by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I really like maps (interesting since I am directionally challenged). I definitely like a certain look. I don't care for all the bright pastels that are used in atlases or road maps. I like the warm golden colors of old maps. Something I have really wanted to do over the past 6 mos is find an old map of Stillwater and an old map of Pryor and hang them in our home. I figured I would settle for this lampshade if my plan didn't quite pan out.

Just your average day in the yard.....

Only in America

Umm, is this for real? I am disturbed by this. A sling for your dog. Hello, since when did pets stop walking?

Dorothy Perkins skirt

This skirt is perfect in every way.
It reminds me of the bottom of a wedding dress.

The book is always better than the movie....

One of my very favorite books. I will admit I had to be talked into reading it. There is a certain "sci-fi-ish" element to the book that I couldn't really get into at first. A beautiful love story in a way that you would never expect. I am sure I will be disappointed in the movie. I will still watch it. The movie is never as good as the book. Just glad I read it a few years back. I snagged it at the book sale for a buck. Can't beat that.

Their first photo shoot

Got these Saturday. Nine West leather booties....aren't they awesome! $15. No kidding. Zippdog had all their shoes on sale for 15 bucks. I can't wait until fall.

Ode to my Father-in-law

You could find all of these things in his pockets on any given day. One knife and his handkerchief are missing. WOW. Z and I were astonished. Most women don't even carry this much in their purses. How does he fit all of this in Levis? Pretty resourceful.

P.S. Thank you, Larry for all your hard work and time on the electrical work and light installation. Looks great! We appreciate two weekends of your time.

Mixed Handbag to come!

Friday finds

Owl bowl from Anthropologie
I would like this hanging on a wall rather than displayed on a table
Message in a Bottle
(and I don't mean the Nicholas Sparks book)
Love this idea.

Personalized playing cards

Each card can be personalized with a different photo. Would be a good gift for grandparents or new parents. You could collect photos year round and give the cards as a stocking stuffer at Christmas. Great wedding gift idea. Very original and you wouldn't have to worry about the couple receiving duplicates.

Recession Collection

Jena's tweet made me remember something I wanted to blog about a few month's ago and then forgot. Rock and Republic released a recession collection including four pairs of jeans this past spring. Two pairs of which are for men. Moderately priced.....or at least it is what I would normally pay for a good pair of jeans. Available at Bloomingdale's, Neiman's, Nordstrom and Saks. NONE of which Oklahoma City has. I guess I will just have to go and check them out while I am in Seattle at the end of August. Happy Birthday to me!

Green Leaf Lulu Chair

Why don't I have room in my house for anymore furniture? Believe me I have tried.
Love this chair from Urban Outfitters!
I would adorn it with a chocolate brown pillow.

No size 10

Variation of the trendy gladiator. I think the caged effect is great.
Only $24 and they come in 4 different colors.
Apparently, they don't make shoes for gals with big feet.
8 1/2 is the largest size they sell. I am officially turned off.


Finally listening to the new Regina Spektor album that I picked up last week. I really like her. She is so calm and collected in interviews and it sounds as if she sings about whatever pops into her head. Folding Chair and Laughing With are my favorites so far.
