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!

Next time you go to Madison Square Park for some Shake Shack, check out all of the Allium growing in and around the park. Might be my new favorite flower!

I love the home floor at Bergdorf's. It makes me so happy. Right off the escalator you have John Derian, then a little further down is Kelly Wearstler's little jewel box of a shop within the shop. When I was there last week, I fell in love with the beautiful and glamorous ceramics of Waylande Gregory. See it here. It's a little Klimt, a little deco, a little Hermes-ish. Amazing. You know when you find something that is just SO YOU and exactly what you wish you would have designed in your wildest creative dreams?? I bought this little jade colored box with orange dots and a gold cougar. It is insanely awesome and my new prized possession. 

It inspired my little painting below, which in retrospect looks like fried eggs but could be a cute pattern in another color!
