On the daily


I came in this morning to my brand new copy of photographer Lu Davis' book: On The Daily.

Is it possible to fall in love with a shirt? 'Cause this new button down from Hartford has stolen my heart*:

It brings to mind Marilyn on the beach, which sounds just about perfect in every way today.  Or, possibly, just the effortless chic of this shirt with black skinny jeans- which is how I'd wear it.

Lu Davis!

The work of photographer Lu Davis is going up in the store this week.  Her work makes me ache in the best way.  The images are evocative, emotional, and empathetic... but this is my take- come in and see for yourself.

When did this term even come into my vocabulary?
Girl-crushing is more than just the admiration one feels for icons like Audrey Hepburn, it's closer to an "l like you, you're awesome, we should be friends" feeling.

I have quite a few girl crushes going at any given time- perennials on my list are Kate Moss (I know, I know..but really? I love her) Madonna (forever and always) Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Stella McCartney, Cate Blanchett, Sophia Coppola, Tina Fey... there are a million more, but let's just go with this little taste before it gets any more revealing (read: embarrassing).  

Armour glosses: Lucy (opaque orange) Grace (magenta shimmer) and Kashmir (rosy peach shimmer)
Lately I'm crushing on Theo Kogan, local lovely, lead singer of  bands the Lunachicks and Theo and the Skyscrapers, DJ, momma, tattoo artist, and proprietress of Armour Beauty.  She's creative, colorful, and certainly crush worthy.

Plus, she has exquisite timing.

I'm not exaggerating when I say I've been on a lip gloss quest.

I've been searching for the perfect lip wear for months now, wandering into Sephora every time I pass one, scanning the reviews on Make-Up Alley, googling things like, "Michelle Williams Red Lipstick".  I've bought half a dozen... Lip Sugar from Fresh, a fancy rosy lipstick from Korres, tinted something from Burt's Bees... Nothing was quite right.
In walked Theo.

Her (Armour's) gloss is thick, laquer-like, rich and colorful.  It's a slick that you know you are wearing, and it lasts for hours.  The colors are either shimmery with flecks of glitter, or creamy and opaque.  They're named for her icons (crushes?): rock gods and goddesses, songs, beauties.

I'm contentedly wearing "Diana", a glossy, opaque, rosy neutral, these days, and moonlighting with "Kashmir" a shimmery, soft peachy pink.

They're available now at the store, and crush worthy indeed.

She didn't name it for me, but a girl can dream...
