Hunt Slonem's studio is filled with birds and bird paintings. I want to live there. I saw his bird on The Selby.   

Look at this MJ bag with birds! It looks like it was inspired by the man himself.


Speaking of bird prints, I almost bought this dress at a little boutique off Lafayette Street.

The first time I saw it I had just had a few Moscow Mules from Pravda around the corner, so I thought it best to revisit it with a clearer head if you know what I mean. The print is a knock off of the Miu Miu prints from Spring (which I LOVED). I ended up there the next day after brunch at Essex ...again with a not so clear head (I swear this is not the norm!) tried it on, and was disappointed that it was just 'eh'. Guess I will have to start stalking ebay for the real thing!

Hi Caitlin,

How are you beautiful? Hope your week is off to a great start! These watercolors are gorgeous as always. The first bird is a wonderful tribue to the fabulous Hunt Slonem! The MJ bag is perfect, and the Miu Miu-inspired dress is adorable!!

I have only had a Moscow Mule once but I remember it being delicious!! Sending you smiles! xox

I want to have a tipsy lunch with you, and then for you to paint it! That would make me very, very happy.
