Stuff We Would Kiss On the Mouf: The Sartorialist

Just a few inspiration pics from The Sartorialist:

In London - so easy, so chic. I don't know if Ames will agree with me, but I think of the cities I have visited, women in London are the MOST chic. You just don't see people running around in sweats and tennis shoes - and you DEFINITELY don't see them running around in pajama pants, a giant tee-shirt and flip-flops. They are fabulous.

Ames: I concur*, with the * only because I have yet to go to Paris. Yet. Comprenez vous?

Again in London. I DIE for that clutch. And the shoes? Fuggedaboutit.

Ames: I love/hate her.

In Dublin. Love this vintagey blouse. I love this photo. So quiet, contemplative, maybe even a little melancholy. Geez - what am I? A judge on America's Next Top Model???? Speaking of which, Team Nicole all the way!!!!!

Ames: Why have we not done ANTM yet? Add to the list. Love Nicole. And country girl. And Rae (miss you). Actually think this season of shorties may have some of the most gorgeous girls yet. And that's not just because I am wee myself.

One of my verrrry favorite things is to mix patterns. I love it when someone does it well. Also love her Michael Kors-inspired DIY sleeveless men's coat.

Ames: Was thinking the other day that it's time to do Maegan's DIY tutorial on this. But only take it to a tailor to do. DIT, if you will. (Did you see her feather skirt yesterday? Swoon.)

MomJeans - why yes, it IS Olivia Palermo. I had to google her, as I am old and had no clue who she was. She pretty.

I have not made travel plans yet. We're going to figure out our Boston trip this weekend. Did I tell you I'm trying to convince Pablo to add on a weekend in NYC to the front end of the trip? Will see about squeezing in some KC once we decide what we're doing.

Make sure and wipe off all the lipstick kisses from my cardboard cutout. You know how you get.
