friday finds: random hits a new high

happy friday, everyone!  this week’s finds, as usual, have no rhyme or reason, they’re just fun things that crossed my path this week on the world wide time waster.  enjoy!

i love nearly everything i see from angela adams, so it comes as no surprise that i fell hard for her gorgeous new sunset rug.  if i had one of those immaculate, offbeat white living rooms…you know, something like this:

this would be exactly the rug i’d want right in the middle.  prices run from $425 up to $3,500, so this hand-tufted wool gorgeousness comes at a price.  but, the good news is i spied a sitewide 20% discount running now through 11/8 (code is CELEBRATE).  so, if you’re in the market…


i’m also crushing pretty hard this week on theory’s new exclusive pant collection for shopbop.  as you know, this year is all about the trouser, in a big way, and these six styles have exactly what it takes to be instant wardrobe staples.  my personal favorite?  this perfect black-and-white tweed, which i’m just itching to add to my closet…it doesn’t hurt that the last pair left just happens to be in my size.

another great find this week was a tracy reese dress i fell for when i saw taylor swift sporting it on ellen this week.  which means awful, from-tv photos. but hopefully you get the idea.  but i love the high boatneck, the retro elbow-length sleeves, and that pleated skirt.  the whole look is just so 1950s sophistication, and would be utterly perfect to have in your closet as a last-minute cocktail dress.  it turns out, sadly, this one isn’t available online, but you can nab it for $398 by calling the tracy reese flagship store in manhattan (212.807.0505) if you’re so inclined.  something tells me i’m going to be craving lace in a big way this holiday season…these modern takes i’m seeing feel so elegant but still fashion-forward.


speaking of awful photos, for those of you who have been waiting with bated breath to see how the great camel coat search of 2010 came out, you’ll be glad to know we have a winner. after trying the burberry (itchy, and less flattering), and even seriously considering the leap to maxmara (too delicate), i found perfection in a little coat company based in new york called fleurette.  they use loro piana wool (even better than cashmre, if such a thing is possible), and all of the details are hand-stitched.  the exact style is nowhere to be found online, but this is the longer version.  mine breaks exactly at the knee, so it’s a perfect all-around length.  it’s a beauty!

i hope your week was a little less random than mine apparently was.  have a great weekend, everyone!
