MAREA new york city.

one of those meals that you replay in your head over and over again during daydream escapes. down to every last bite, everything was absolutely delicious. it's almost unfair that I put my tastebuds through this multi-course extravaganza. how can I ever eat anything again now that I know what freshly-made spaghetti with crab and sea urchin tastes like. tastes like magic to be exact.

see you in my dreams little uni. 

wrap me up

theory mohair sweater. 3.1 phillip lim skirt. givenchy boots.

weekend bites

easy weekend eats

early flowers

veda leather and denim. theyskens theory dress. the row sunglasses.

Thy fingers make early flowers
of all things.
thy hair mostly the hours love:
a smoothness which
(though love be a day)
do not fear,we will go amaying.

thy whitest feet crisply are straying.
thy moist eyes are at kisses playing,
whose strangeness much
(though love be a day)
for which girl art thou flowers bringing?

To be thy lips is a sweet thing
and small.
Death,thee i call rich beyond wishing
if this thou catch,
else missing.
(though love be a day
and life be nothing,it shall not stop kissing).

e. e. Cummings. Thy Fingers Make Early Flowers


noguchi in long island city

if you're in the mood for a little bit of adventure and have a soft spot in your heart for architecture, I would highly recommend a trip to the noguchi museum in long island city. a great way to do something different and spend a sunny saturday afternoon outside of manhattan!
