These pieces are all part of the MoMA’s new exhibit “On Line: Drawing Through the 20th Century.” They posted the entire collection on their website and there are so many cool pieces that will provide endless inspiration. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I am not sure if I have been under a rock for the last year or so, but somehow I missed this AWESOME brand, Alice by Temperley. They do a fabulous job of incorporating fun trends, such as ethnic inspired prints and the military look, in a wearable manner. Be sure to check out their website, they post some of their inspiration boards and also have an interesting blog. Love it!


I stumbled across Cori Dantini’s artwork on Etsy and love her style. She combines illustration, pattern, and typography into fascinating 8″x 10″ pieces of artwork. These would make wonderful gifts!

These yummy images are part of Mr. Ford’s subtle and secretive launch back into womenswear. Ford held a “no photos allowed” show in September, but he will share a video from the show in December. I can’t wait to see more!! I am loving that animal print and the colors and textures are exquisite.

I, along with the rest of the fashion world, am obsessed with these vibrant reds that seem to be emerging. Is it a holiday thing? I am not sure, but..I found this great “Life in Red” photo story at National Geographic. Enjoy!
