As if several plates of Thanksgiving dinner wasn't enough (hey, we started at 2 in the afternoon), we stopped by this beacon of culinary delights on the way back to Brooklyn. Feast your eyes on this. Someone's ready for the holidays...
(I should qualify that statement...Best Morning Ever Even Though It Was Without Benjamin.)
Saturday mornings are usually reserved for cleaning. But I woke up to the sun shining through the windows, and I knew I had to get out of my apartment, and fast. I had to make it to the post office on Meserole before one (I love this post office, but my friend says it's gross and depressing).
I found a new little boutique called Old Hollywood on the way. The shop is adorable, the duena Iris is a total hoot (her girly-friend Tiffany opened the place a little over a month ago), and the prices on really great vintage are completely fair (take that! other vintage stores in Williamsburg). I was quaking in my boots (mostly because of the donut and coffee I had from my favorite bakery, Peter Pan) with excitement for this fantastique new place. Yay ladies! Now if I could just move in to the boutique I would be one happy girl.
There is a great selection of vintage jackets, handbags, shoes, and clothing mixed with really awesome jewelry, a lot of which looked like it had been repurposed vintage. All of this in the cutest setting ever.

Saul Leiter's photographs are like a secret someone whispers in your ear. These photographs whisper, "You're beautiful" or "I love you", and often "I miss you terribly". Sometimes they remind you to smile, or to have a good day.
They are simple and quiet and don't take up much space.
They never get grumpy and ask you to chew more quietly.

To be completely honest, I'm not good at brushing my teeth before bed. We saw this sign the other night, and I thought, "If there's a way to encourage good dental hygiene, it must be with neon." I just wish I had one of these in my house to remind myself what I should be doing.
