Quote of the day

"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."
— R. Buckminster Fuller (via chemin faisant)

Small indulgences

This is the week that I drive The Elusive Boy off to college (The Hound will accompany us, of course).

Or in my case, a bottle of cheap sparkling Pinot Grigio from Trader Joes.

I'm treating myself this month, needless to say. Gotta get through somehow.

The best red lipstick I've come across in a long, long time (maybe ever, and that's saying a lot for me):

Christophe Robin's Regenerating Hair Mask, got it with a sale code at BeautyHabit (because it's expensive, believe me). Only a small amount is needed each use (it's very rich) and it makes my hair look fabulous, if I do say so myself. Worth every penny.

And I just ordered this from Etsy (another sale code!). I hope it's half as beautiful and useful as it looks (UPDATE: It is!)...
Handmade black deerskin bag with calfskin lining from DalleDieMani.
In keeping with my rules (one-in-one-out), I have to sell one of my other bags. Now, to decide which one...



Modaspia's Fall collection is out-- and it looks beautiful. Her collections sell out quickly, and it looks like a few things are already gone and it's been up less than a week! Here are my favorites:

The Half-Moon Tunic:

The Cropped Jacket:

Look at the gorgeous silk lining (I hope she makes more of these).

and the Knitwear (coming soon):

More, please, Ursula!

and does it.”
