happy friday, dear readers. it’s the first ‘friday finds’ of the new year, so we’d better make it good…don’t you agree?
i honestly can’t remember where i first spotted these bold graphic drawings from artist josh cochran. but i haven’t been able to get them out of my head. i emailed the artist begging him to make a print available, and he was kind enough to let me know that they were just about to be released! now, they’re available on his site, and for a very reasonable $55 each (i also love that they’re 13×19…i’m overloaded with 8×10 prints in my life at present). my hands-down favorite is the museum steps print, but they’re all such perfect scenes of new york, with all its grit, confusion, personality and color. i can’t wait to have one on my wall.
and now moving from the serious and artistic to the superficial and stylish, i’ve been eyeing this navy coat from asos for months now, but in recent days it’s turned into more of an obsession than anything else. it looks exactly like the sort of thing you’d be wearing when the sartorialist sprinted across the street to beg to take your photo, doesn’t it? beyond being the perfect oversized, slouchy hybrid between a blazer and an overcoat, the details are what really make this amazing. i love the buttoned pleat in the back, and as always, am swooning at the mere sight of elbow patches. at $200, it’s hard to continue being disciplined.
i spied these beautiful canisters at west elm last week, and i’ve been dying to show you. but they’re not available online…so irritating! if you happen to stop into a west elm store, look around for these beautiful, heath-style ceramic canisters in the palest sky blue, with a wooden lid, that look right out of a kitchen styled for martha stewart. oh, and they’re marked down from $70 to $24.99…hmm, no wonder they’re not available online any longer. i did, however, manage to track down a photo:
have a great weekend, everyone! and if you’re lucky enough to have monday off, well, send a little thought of thanks up to dr. king for handing you that work holiday, won’t you?
