Peep the new Project Runway Contestants

You can see and read about the new Project Runway Season 4 contestants right now on

I've caught past seasons' episodes here and there and really liked them. So this Fall I'm on board for the long haul.

The '07 collection premiers Wednesday, November 14th.

Thanks to my friend Krista for the tip.

Classy Pet Bed from Ikea

I've seen a million pricey designer versions of this sort of furniture-like pet bed. But, finally, Ikea is offering us a cheap but chic alternative.

The $69 Batis Krona is for a cat or small dog and has a removable, machine-washable cover.

Thanks to my friend Pablo for the tip.

Thank You to the Frugal Duchess

I wanted to thank the Frugal Duchess for quoting me in her fabulous post about I mentioned the site several months ago while posting about buying art online.

You can read the Duchess's article about the Goodwill's eBay-style online thrift store here. She's got some great tips for buying on the site.

Another Fabulous Outfit

Here's another amazing outfit snapped by the Sartorialist. It looks fabulous, but the components are relatively simple: a pencil skirt, a graphic tee, and an amazing trench.

I love to shop. And I'd like to think I have decent taste. But I never manage to put anything this spectacular together.

I've decided the solution is to compile a look-book for myself using my favorite Sartorialist pics. That way I'll be focused in on what I really want/need.

Alice McCall

I really like this outfit from Alice McCall's "Welcome to the Dollhouse" collection.

I would kind of need both pieces to be about 6" longer, but I love the contrasting stripes and colors.

The rest of her stuff is equally Paris-cool.

Cox Chair

Check out this awesome chair over at BLTD.

Wilton Desk Lamp

This Wilton Desk Lamp from Crate and Barrel looks like the sort of vintage piece you'd find at a great flea market. Maybe somewhere in Europe.

The fluted gold base is pretty snazzy. But my favorite detail is the interior of the lacquered black steel shade. It's painted gold.

Wilton Desk Lamp, $249 at Crate&Barrel.

Monday Inspiration

Oh, to be this chic in my car. Much less on my bike.

I just love the vein of red running through the center of this photo. What a great shot.
