Bits & Pieces

1. Barring what I said last week about this fashion industry, this woman, Iris Apfel, is an exception. I mean. You can't help but fall in love. With her, it's all a matter of perspective; not being necessarily being on-trend or going with the flow. She is her own personality, and that, I think, is the root of everything. This is just a sneak peek at the documentary currently being made about her, but you can read more about the self-proclaimed "geriatric starlet" here
2. Really loving the photo-a-day handkerchief journal DIY Kara did for A Beautiful Mess. That girl can make a journal out of ANYTHING. 
3. The Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2012 lookbook is out! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. I want to snuggle up in some of those fancy knits, especially the Wellwood Henley (p.27) and the Breton Shirt (p.56). Plus, the photography is amazing. They couldn't have picked a better location!

4. Maybe I'm the only person who DIDN'T know about this, but Wendy MacNaughton is an AMAZING artist. I'm completely in love with her style. That Susan Sontag print was featured (and a limited print edition of them sold out before I could snag one!) on Brainpickings, and from there I followed the trail to her website...If you want to see some incredible, thought-provoking watercolor and ink work, she's you're gal. My favorites are her Commuters sketches, the SF Public Library (part of her "Meanwhile" documentary series), The Winemaker of Bolinas (also part of her "Meanwhile" series), AND her collaborative Pen&Ink tumblr series with Isaac Fitzgerald. PS getting lost in her blog might be the best thing that happens to you today. 

5. I get chills every time I listen to the grad speech David Foster Wallace gave at Kenyon College in 2005. Mentioning this because yesterday marked the fourth anniversary of his untimely death and heartwrenching as that may be, the speech is something that everyone should hear it at least once in their lifetime. 

6. ALSO you should check out the fall playlist Christine posted this's basically everything a fall playlist should be and then some. JUSTsayin. 

What're you loving today?
