Dreaming of Labels
Working on a freelance project this weekend and my mind is swimming in vintage labels. A bit rusty, but I wouldn't say no to one of these. Photo via The Dieline, my new favorite site.

Eatable and Many Orders

Normally I don't post about fashion here (I have another blog for that), but this morning I stumbled upon an amazing Japanese label called Eatable and Many Orders. I know, I know, that name makes little sense to me either, but who cares when you get clothes like this? I'm kinda obsessed, and now only want to wear shades of white. My bedroom is like this outfit--all different shades of white and ivory and cream and oatmeal. It's comforting. Thanks to 2 or 3 things I know for the tip-off.

Scent Bar

Scent Bar in Los Angeles. Why didn't I know about this when I lived there? I dropped some dough on samples last week that are simply divine. I have a freakishly accute sense of smell, so I wonder if walking into a place like this would send me into overload? It's worth a shot.

While I love having a signature perfume, I also want a shelf in my boudoir to hold an array of these beautiful bottles. So very pretty.

A good weekend
We spent Saturday in Marin, visiting friends in Inverness at the J.B. Blunk residency. After a quick tour, I was ready to move in and get working in the studio. This trip made me really miss having a more regular studio practice. As a designer I sometimes feel stuck on that sticky fly-trap tape between the worlds of commerce and art. They often coincide, but lately it's been all about the day job and less about the real job at hand.
