Long hair, wavy styles, and a strong case of updo envy

Once the inevitability of November begins to creep in, I get an urge to lop off all my hair and send it away.  This year though, I'm tempted to hold onto my long locks.  If only for just a little bit longer.

Falling for Fair Isle

Perhaps you may remember my recent obsession with all things Nordic last year?  Well add to that a fervor for Fair Isle.  Named for a small Scottish island, Fair Isle is a style of knitting that uses multiple colors in a typically graphic pattern.  The style is very similar to Nordic knit patterns.  I like that it conjures up images of apres ski relaxation, warm wood stoves, snow covered trees, and log cabins in the woods.

Mario Testino at the MFA

The fashion magazine nerd in me was salivating last night at the Mario Testino exhibit that is currently on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  Called "In Your Face," the glossy, irreverent, and beautiful show is a sort of who's who in fashion and popular culture.  (As a nice companion to the exhibit, there is also a room full of his British Royal Portraits on the other side of the museum.)  Seeing "In Your Face" last night really reignited my fascination with Kate Moss, a frequent muse of Testino's.  What was really cool about the exhibit though is the sheer size of the prints, blown up to be larger than life.  It almost felt as if you were walking through a magazine.  And isn't that every girl's dream?  Here are some of my favorites.

Dreams of suburbia

Freshly cut grass.  A white picket fence.  Wiffleball in the yard.  A stoop for sitting and chatting and planning our future.  Dreams of suburbia.

A river runs through it

Morning bus ride across the river. Sun glinting off the State House. Fall foliage lines the water, still and glassy. Everyone cranes their neck to see.

Happy Birthday 'Moby Dick'

Whale-inspired decor in honor of Herman Melville's seminal tale about that elusive, white whale.  "Moby Dick" was first published 161 years ago today.
