Hugely enjoying Wardrobe vs. Pantry on Tumblr. This is one of the more refreshing and innovative blogs I’ve come across. I think it’s inspired. There are too many amazing ones to choose a favorite, but the watermelon one is pretty killer—and be sure to take note of the Mondrian cake!
Amber and I just visited the Rose Bowl Flea Market, one of the once-a-month wonders of Pasadena. We’d never been, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. The flea markets here in Los Angeles range in size from tiny to huge, from incredible to disappointing…

Patrick Demarchelier photographs clothing by Dior, Valentino, Stella McCartney, Vera Wang, Rodarte, and Alexander McQueen in a gorgeous editorial in US Vogue’s November issue. I’m completely smitten.
