Must-have pant of your life

While I was home in good 'ol Troy, Michigan for a week, my mom and I did a lot of shopping. Well, correction. A lot of walking around the mall, eating veggie burgers, drinking coffees, and sneaking sweets wherever possible. Anthropologie is always a place we end up stumbling into. Feeling, smelling and trying on many many things. When I saw these pants I knew they would never come off my body, and they haven't since I got them last week. They're like if jeans and leggings got married and had super awesome kid that got all the best traits and so they quit having kids after that because, well, what's the point? So there you have it. The pant you must go buy now. I know that $138 buckeroos is a lot to spend on a single pair of pants, but when you divide that by the infinite number of times you'll wear them and all the different ways to wear them, well that equals like $1. And that's a deal.

Richard Avedon at the Detroit Institute of Arts

Clearly the iconic fashion photographer from the 40s onward, Richard Avedon, needs no introduction by me! But I was SO ecstatic when I arrived in Detroit and saw the highways peppered with billboards for this absolutely incredible exhibit at the DIA. Remind me why I moved again? Oh yes, the weather and crumbling economy.

DVF Vintage

Who doesn't love animal print? It absolutely never goes out of style. And DVF continues to update and fun-ify it every year. Can't wait for these versions to show up on ebay.

Dead Weather::Alison Mosshart

My ears are still ringing from the most amazing show I've seen in a long long time. And Alison Mosshart is seriously the most bad ass woman on the planet. I was just in awe of her the entire show.

Ruben Toledo for literature

I am a nut for beautifully designed books and book covers. There's this shop in Dallas, Legacy Books, that is probably one of my favorite places in the universe. Regretfully, I've never purchased a book there because hello, I can buy them for virtually half off on amazon, but I love to go there and touch and smell the books. It's almost creepy. I'm sure I've written about the Penguin Deluxe series before, and here I am again. In love.

Ruben Toledo has illustrated a series of covers for Penguin. And consequently I'm about to purchase my 12th copy of Pride & Prejudice. But first and foremost is Wuthering Heights. I'm desperately in need of a stupidly gushy love story stat!
