Tuesday and Turquoise

Some of our collection of jewelry from the Navajo, Zuni and Hopi nations. Love the idea of turquoise all year round but something about it is especially striking for summer. The stone not only looks good but has protective and healing properties as well so the more the merrier!

Weekend Inspiration: Édouard Boubat's "Plutôt la vie" photograph

Édouard Boubat "Plutôt la vie (We Prefer Life)," Paris May 1968
Édouard Boubat took really beautiful black and white photos, mostly of Paris life and a lot of the time with cats in them :) 
Cat lover Grace Coddington is a fan of his work and talks a little about some of the Boubat prints she has in her collection in "The September Issue," in the special features section of the DVD which we've seen a million times (no exaggeration!).

Anyway, love this one with the kitty looking out of the window plus very inspiring graffiti message.

Jewelry, the Cheap Chic Update Way

As we've mentioned before, the Cheap Chic Update guide to "creating your own great look" is endlessly inspiring. One of the women interviewed about personal style who is especially cool is NY photojournalist Helene Gaillet. She definitely has a laid back attitude towards styling herself. While she obviously has impeccable taste, she isn't precious about her things when she wears them:

"I do sink money in accessories: I always wear the same ones, and I do spend on them...All my gold things have been stolen twice, so I don't have much left: five rings, a Cartier tank watch with a clasp that cost $600 in Paris eight years ago, a Van Cleef and Arpels bracelet, and some gold chains. They're like good luck charms. I even swim and sleep with them on."
