These days.

One of my all time favorite scenes from a movie is in The Royal Tenenbaums when Richie gets off the bus and he sees Margot for the first time. The music alone is enough to break your heart. "Let me get a look at you."

The Sartorialist BOOK

My morning routine for the past three years 
has been a trifecta of tea or coffee, email, and
a visit to The Sartorialist Blog. I wanted to buy
one of Scott Shuman's prints at a gallery show in D.C. while
I was there visiting my parents. For a moment
I thought I could, and perhaps I should have, but
now there is The Book. Best summer purchase
by a long shot. It arrives at that exact wondrous
time of year, the August September, summer
to fall transition, full of nostalgia and newness,
and with the weather, the sartorial switch.
Perfect timing.


I'm not alone on this one...
