... oh! and there are mirit's gorgeous dresses, too.
you know how sometimes you just can't put into words how flattered you are? this happens to me all the time. ha. no, but really... it did happen when i realized the city sage had said some super-kind words about greedy girl.
and now i'm happy to have discovered a new blog favorite. (flattery gets you everywhere.)
don't you love these j.crew-meets-home photos anne sage has paired together? i haven't gotten a chance to look through my latest catalog, but after seeing this, it's at the top of my weekend to-do list. and, yes, anne sage, those sequin bloomers (sequins! bloomers!) are pretty extraordinary.
while i'd kill to have a couple of each of these (i'm a big fan of a fancy sweatshirt), i think i could also settle for, say, 10 all in gray. i've already started trimming the summer color out of my fall clothes. think gray! and black! and gray!
also, you should know i am doing everything in my power to not show you everything that's on my mind for fall. i keep telling myself, wait, dear child. the time will come.
but, i'm afraid to say that i think aug. 1 is as long as i can hold out. the end of july has always meant the end of summer to me even if it's not going to drop below 95 for another couple of months. so, long story short, i am going to explode corduroy and loafers and wool and boots all over you next week. all i'm saying is get ready.
don't you love this silk dupion headpiece? i do. as my friend, eli, would say: squee! i am squee-ing all over this.
and, so you know... this line of hair- and headwear is made by the creative ladies behind lingerie favorite hopeless. too talented for their own good, i tell you.
p.s. i need a new sleep mask. i'm thinking this is THE ONE. i love the tiny bows.
(via happiness is...)
i was so close to winding down for the night and getting in bed. and THEN i came across this collection of smart little bow ties. i love it. everything about it. all of it.
these vintage french labels. these postcards. the end result.
what i love most? the cute, creative couple behind the whole thing. how can joe and i make that our life?

some things that i certainly don't need, but definitely want...
well, i could really use the knives. they are great, right?
also, while we're talking kitchen, i'm loving this sake set and this GORGEOUS drink dispenser.
ok, and while we're on the subject of bedrooms (oh, we werent?), i have to have this colorful quilt from pakistan. love. it.

go now for some sweet (& super-affordable) vintage finds from greedy girl sponsor kind boutique... but it only lasts 72 hours, so you know... hurry.
(half-off your order when you buy two or more vintage pieces... just use code vintage at checkout.)
if these were a teeeensy bit smaller, i'd be all over them.
now, go forth and buy vintage.

funny small world! as i was clicking around the photographer's site from the my last post, i realized i had actually been waiting to feature these gorgeous shots. AMAZING. i would actually probably kill someone to have that second, sparkly one hanging huge on my wall. just saying.
go here for more on these shots, and go check out some more gorgeous things at the studio's etsy shop.

i love when underwear doesn't have to be lacy or shiny or racy to be sexy. kate ruggiero's gypsy line of pretty panties is handmade on oahu (lucky girl) with unique and comfy fabrics. go here to read a profile on kate and the story behind her line. it's super-inspiring, and i wish her tons of success in hawaii.
also, the photography's not so shabby either, is it?

you know i love a good sparkle. and i know you do, too. and that's why i know you'll love erica weiner jewelry, greedy girl's newest sponsor.
i'm sure you've already heard the name. maybe you've even snatched up a few of their one-of-a-kind pieces. seriously one-of-a-kind: ring cast from 19th century scottish wax seal? check. necklaces made from old pen nibs found in an old barn? they've got that, too. tiny silver hummingbird skull on a chain? oh yes. it's my favorite — and has been for a while.
oh, and erica has a pretty badass bob, too.
so head over there now, check out their cache of curiosities. and when you find something you like, they'll pick up the tab on shipping if you join the mailing list. then, through july 31, just enter freeshipjuly in the 'voucher' section at checkout.
thank you to both erica weiner jewelry and all my lovely and greedy readers for your support.
OH and i almost forgot to mention... don't you love the vintage ephemera used in the photos and on the site? well, lucky you, you can get a big pack of it here.
if you haven't already, you're probably going to want to scoot on over to the club monaco website. why? because garance dore shot the fall lookbook (and, it's amazing). also? there's a charming little video that will have you wanting to be byrdie bell in new york eating croissants.
just trust me.

i've been a big fan of ruche for so long that i'm over the moon to announce them as my newest sponsor. why i love them:
1. their selection is huge. seriously. just trying to get this post together took forever because i had the hardest time narrowing my favorites down.
2. their prices are insane. watch out, anthropologie. the tops at top (those are FOXES at the left, fyi)? right around $30 apiece. those dresses? no more than $40. the necklace and earrings? each under $15. no kidding.
and, finally, 3. i've found a substitute for my completely unaffordable alexander wang hankering. it's $50, and it's adorable.
i hope you'll head over to ruche right this second to give them a big greedy girl welcome. and you might also want to check out their blog because that's where you can find special discount codes. (and sign up for their e-mails, too.)
thank you so much to ruche for joining greedy girl's amazing group of sponsors.

so, i'll be honest. i judge books by their covers. not all the time. of course not. but most of the time? yes. definitely most of the time.
my favorites are the classics. you know, the ones that barnes & noble has printed really big.
that's why i was really pretty jazzed when i found out about out of print clothing. genius idea. if i could, i'd have them all. but my favorite? f. scott fitzgerald's tales of the jazz age. and i love the red cardigan girlie up there has paired it with.
oh but wait! i almost forgot the best part: they do good and donate one book for every shirt sold. i like that.
did you know to kill a mockingbird turned 50 this weekend? amazing. and... speaking of 50, did you know IRA GLASS is 51?! holy wow. i first discovered this via wit + delight, who discovered it via out of print's blog. full circle, folks!
