New stuff in the shop! That dress was so exciting to find, I love that sort of vintage. When I put it on I felt like I should be a part of some sort of ceremony or something, or like I should be out casting spells in the moonlight.

Here is some art that I have come across recently that I really love. The top three images are sculptures made by Kris Kuksi found via io9. The next three are by Christina Bothwell found via Teenangster. The last are by Tauba Auerbach, we saw some of her paintings at Ps1 this weekend and they are very beautiful in person.

This was such a nice sunday, I spent the day hanging out with my friends Bree and Patrick and their baby Louis. We walked to Queens to check out an art show at Ps1 and then had dinner at Acapulco. We were all mesmerized by the television in the restaurant, they had it set on the Disney channel and they were playing the Parent Trap, the Lindsay Lohan one. I hadn't been to Acapulco in ages, it is so good, and so inexpensive too. Louis is a super social baby, he said hello to everyone there, he's the cutest. On the way back we passed this new place, it was a coffee shop with super good decor, I think the name of the place is Milk and Roses. They had books on the walls, a really beautiful piano and a back yard. I can't believe I used to live on the far end of Manhattan Ave, nowadays it seems like there is so much more happening around there. I think I miss it.

I went to a super rad flea market this morning, I found this old printing block there. There was a whole lot of them, you have to tilt it to see the image in the light. I also found a whole lot of vintage clothes for my store, like amazing amazing stuff.
