Runway Swag

The front-row gift at the Alexandre Herchcovitch show during Sao Paulo Fashion Week.  So jealous.

Tony Duquette

I'm finding iconic interior designer Tony Duquette's over the top nouveau-Baroque style really inspirational.  It's way to embellished for my taste, but it's total eye candy to see such dense layering of textures and materials and rich colors.

Tim Walker

A decidedly un-well-edited array of fanciful shots from photographer Tim Walker.  They were just too amazing to narrow down.

Zac Posen resort 2010

I love everything about this collection, the color, the exquisite construction, the incredible volume and detail.  The hubby and I are going to opening night at the Lincoln Center and picture number one is unquestionably my dream dress.

Edmund Dulac

I used to look at Edmund Dulac's illustrations in my copy of his Fairy Book when I was little.  Dulac was a prolific French illustrator during the 'Golden Age of Illustration' (the first quarter of the 20th century).  I just love how detailed and dreamy and romantic these are.  They just don't make kids books like they used to.
