“Growing up in Seattle in the early 90’s Chris Benz spent time in his grandmother’s attic carefully sorting through antique jewelry and fifties-era dolls,” and I am so glad he did. Isn’t his resort 2011 collection so granny-chic?

The bag, the effortless bun, the orange polish, the dress and kaftan all are all awesome reminders that summer isn’t quite over yet. But what I’m especially crazy about is the thin gold chain hanging from her sunglasses. Whatever its proper name is (croakie, chum, strap or retainer), let’s just call it understated and totally chic.

Colour Pencils

Helsinki based artist Jonna Pohjalainen spent a summer at an environmental art workshop, where she would sit quietly taking in the rural landscape, sharpening her pencils and watching the sun set.  She was instantly inspired to turn grey aspen logs into an enormous and charming sculpture, titled Colour Pencils.  In turn, she’s inspired me to want to paint the tips of tepee poles.
