French Inspiration- Charlotte Gainsbourg

While satisfying my craving for foreign films and british tea, I stumbled upon Charlotte Gainsbourg.  "Stumbled" as a result of revisiting the film Science of Sleep.  (Back in 2007 my crush began.)  And here we are today... me sitting at home in my apartment and organizing images of Charlotte in all of her chic-ness.

Film Noir...

...Infinitely Chic...  The femme fatal, the trench coats, the shadows, the smoke, the disillusions, the crime.  Oh la, la.  Confession: I stayed up way to late watching Almodovar's film Matador.  Tres noir.  At least that was the conclusion derived by the man of the apartment.  Disagree? me? Well, not at all.  The discussion of sexual motivations and whodunit cases left me craving black and more time in front of projected reels.  Thus, the Noir inspired post...

Urban Nesting

Accompanying the drop in temperature is cold season.  Exhaustion, stuffy noses, chills, sore throats, the whole caboodle.  The typical remedy around here includes plenty of Emergen-C, jasmine tea, peanut butter + honey sandwiches, hot toddies and netflix.

However all of this laying about the apartment in a blanket has ignited an urge to upgrade the nest.  Stock it ready for winter... here are a few of the latest ideas and cravings...

Ombre Throw Blanket from Alder & Co ($220)

Stelton Oil Lamp from Canoe ($100)

Mollaspace Zipper Cup from Compound ($40)

    Alissi Mami Kettle from hive ($180)

Con el Sol y la Amiga

Last night my friend Kate and I attended Isaac Hers' Spring 2012 collection "Con el Sol."  Patron margaritas aside we still had a splendid evening full of oversized chap-stick tubes and shopping.

Of course in a fit of layering before leaving my apartment I spaced out stuffing my camera in my purse.  So these photos were snapped by my trusty compatriot's smart phone.  ¡Buen provecho!
