kelly at design crush recently started a 3 to see series, which has introduced some new-to-me faves every friday.
she was kind enough to include greedy girl in the honors two weeks ago, and i was beyond excited. i like being honored!
i recommend you check it out! and, thanks again kelly.
on a similar note, katie did posted a tutorial for the unbelievable flower collars she did for her daughters. as usual, my mind is blown. (i tell her a lot i am obsessed with her lovely family and her super talents and their sweet brooklyn life, and it is completely true. i hope i am not creepy. hm.)
i would die if these belonged to me. i love that she's not afraid to wear them.
(this blog will make you hate your job, your shoes and the people who have the job you should have and the shoes you should own. thanks to k at blog goggles, who with one blog post has me re-evaluating my entire life.)

really, really like. was really getting tired of hand lettering. until now.
rifle design via party perfect.
[edited to add: ok, i thought i'd clarify... i don't hate hand lettering. i really love it, and i'm excited to see a resurgence. i'm just getting tired of all the ultra-cutesie hipster stuff. i just wanted to throw that in there so no one started to think i was a satanist or something.]

one more bathing suit for the day, this time from hayden-harnett.
via camp comfort.
p.s. joanna posted about retro bathing suits over at her smitten blog, and i was appalled at how many people shunned the look in favor of G-STRINGS. yes, g-strings. now, i don't judge, but come on, people. if you don't live in south beach, don't wear a g-string. thoughts?
so i imagine my delight when suzie of bees'netta got in touch and introduced her shop (especially this bag) to my little circus-free world. her work is inspired by "vintage designs and nomadic behaviors." i love that.
thanks, suzie, for sharing... i love what you're doing.
and, also, this photo is pretty stellar. and i don't just call anything stellar.
i will be going to belgium (and paris!) in july and, while it is three months away, i'm already packing in my head. it's my first trip to europe so i am beyond excited.
joanna already started the shoe discussion, from which i've gained a lot of insight. but what is really troubling me is clothes.
obviously i don't want to stick out as an american (an okie, at that) but i also don't want to attempt the dark-and-brooding-european act either.
my tentative plan is to play it classic & cool with dark skinny jeans and black t-shirts. that kind of look.
what do you think? let's start the discussion on the one great eternal question...
how do i dress like a french woman*?
*or man, as the boyfriend would surely appreciate tips, too.
photo, of course, by the sart.
speaking of springtime...
i want to live in marc loret's world, don't you?
the kind mr. loret has offered a special deal to greedy girl readers. enter 'i love greedy girl' during your purchase, and you can choose another photo of the same size for free!
merci beaucoup, marc loret!

FINALLY i think spring is starting to kick in for good here in oklahoma city. thunderstorms last night and sing-songy birds tonight and more thunderstorms tomorrow.
now that it's time, wouldn't you love to own a pair of these sweet puddle stompers?
well... now you're 15 percent closer when you use code "greedygirlrocks" (so true) at plueys.
this origami pair is my favorite, but tokyo rain comes in at a close second.
p.s. check out these tinies for the little ones.
p.p.s. thank you, plueys, for the generous offer! it is good through oct. 2... and just one per customer, greedy girls!

shameless self-promotion to follow...
perhaps you are in the market for a new job? or a little work on the side? or maybe you just want to pay me to do something extraordinary for you?
well, you're in luck. i kind of really happen to like designing and writing resumes. rates are low ($20 for design, $30 for design + writing), and i'll provide you with a handy little pdf so you can print your little heart out.
please e-mail for details.
i'm certain this print would put a smile on my face day after day.
if you haven't already, you should check out christine berrie's work. all of it would be so lovely famed on a desk for inspiration, say, for photographers.
p.s. this is the mini of my dreams. one day my beloved mini pearl will have an older, handsome mate like this. this one is pretty fantastic, too.
people who rock my world?
among them, sofia coppola. she apparently is the photographer behind this beloved kirsten dunst photo (you may remember the hair cut from my ill-fated attempt at recreating it) and this lovely shot of leighton meester*.
and that card? perfection, i'd say. the last photo, of course, is from the marc jacobs parfum campaign from a couple years back, shot by juergen teller, who i thought had been the one behind that kirsten photo. guess not! happy to have found all this via funambula, my newest go-to site for eye candy.
p.s. who knew sofia was behind this canned champagne? call it what you want, but i'm kind of a fan.
*what is the deal with all these gossip girl breaks? did they really just show the episode from two weeks ago? it's like the writers' strike all over again. speaking of, am i the only who thought it was kind of way hot that chuck and vanessa hooked up?
