Brazilian footwear label Melissa commissioned Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid to design a serious pair of shoes. And I mean serious. AGH! These are so cool.
via flickr’s pud pud and selfservice APC‘s Fall collection has premiered, layered with lots o’plaid, nautical details, and weathered ankle boots. And we love it. It just makes me want to watch the sea with some hot toddies. Ok, must imagine a little harder in code orange heat. Added bonus: these looks are easily imitable [...]
This week’s flavor: salt. A crazy-ass Philip Johnson building. Arsenic and Old Lace screens tonight on the Green. Tuesday, July 29th, go to Second Story books in Dupont before their big ol’ 20% percent off everything sale ends on Thursday. (Looks like there are some deals to be had at the Rockville store, too.) Wednesday, [...]
I doubt that anyone needs to be reminded that the second season of Mad Men commences tonight at 10 pm on AMC. This cable-less girl will be in her parent’s basement, eating pesto and crying over everyone’s outfits. I can never decide whose I like the best. Rachel is so haute. Peggy has this weird [...]

Images from my trip to Montana, Butte and Glacier National Park, last week. I came across so many amazing antiques and the beauty in Montana and Glacier is not to be missed.
We have one more sneak preview of our offerings for Saturday‘s event at Red Onion! Stop ova and say hi!
Flowers, later renamed Icehouse, were Australia’s biggest pop act in the early 1980′s. This band is inspiring for me on a very deep spiritual level. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smEXxuYQHUQ]
Sorry for the cheese-y title, I couldn’t help myself. So, Keep is an awesome, woman-run, sweatshop-free, company whose shoes I love. Now they are going to be making clothes. So awesome!
I feel very grateful that I can walk out the door every Saturday morning and in a few moments have access to fresh farmers’ market fare. Luckily D.C. is situated so that we have access to great markets practically every day of the week for a good portion of the year. The Mount Pleasant market [...]
You guys remember Bobby Trendy, right? (Evil Beet Gossip) He was Anna Nicole Smith‘s interior decorator. “I tell other people what is wrong with them—I teach lessons every day.” Mr. Trendy bragged of dining nightly on filet mignon; does he fear mad-cow disease? “I repel all diseases.” This quote is from a 2002 NY Observer [...]
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend Listopad your ears. We’re plotting a new feature that we’re really excited about. We’re obsessed with all things vintage and secondhand. This should be obvious by now. We shop a lot and we find a lot of beautiful things, both for ourselves and for our shopping parties. We’re assuming that if [...]
Ok so I might be playing into the capitalist empire by promoting the song Target is using in their current commercials, but Dolly’s a classic–and a musical genius. Check out the boho chic before it was chic here. Of course none of it can compete with 1974 Dolly: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1plvBR02wDs] Points of interest: her wig, that [...]
We’re getting really excited about our upcoming event and wanted to share with you a peek into our summer offerings. See them in person July 26 outside of Red Onion!
Summer’s not over yet! You can still justify more hot weather shoes These espadrilles have been perfected over 70 years, and the colors get better and better. They even have a wikipedia page, so you know they are serious. Available online.
This week’s flavor: poppyseed! Wednesday, July 16th: Peter Eisenman is the Louis I. Kahn Professor of Architecture at Yale. He wrote a book called Ten Canonical Buildings about incidents of architecture that blew enough minds to change things. He will talk about it at the Corcoran tonight! Thursday, July 17th finds many things going on [...]
Dolce and Gabbana is a party animal. (justOne!.) (Apron and Irons.) (Fashion had this weird collective Marie Anoinette moment maybe 3 years ago? I have to confess, I really loved it.) But look at how crowded these ads are! (Advertalog.) (s/a) (Kitmeout.) (Christonium.) This I fucking love. Look at those floating psycho magpie women!
A L A I N F I N K E L K R A U T R O C K bring us this little gem. This is from a 1970 TV special called Raquel! Deluxe Addition. (Please leave a comment if you buy it, because I really want to see it in its entirety at [...]
Now that Americans are starting to awake from their post-9/11, post-Freedom Fries haze, we are finally beginning to accept once more that France is awesome. Before Bushie, didn’t all smart, tasteful Americans adore France? Of course we did, and for too many reasons to name. Their language, their thinness, their smoking habit, their film, their [...]
I love Hiroshi Tanabe. (Pic from Bibabidi.)
Parisian romance in the park via Facehunter. I love everything about her look – the pleats, the drapes, the simplicity, topped off with that delicate feather in her hair!
This week’s flavor: cinnamon. HOT. Christine makes loving fun. Have you ever seen better bangs?! On Tuesday, July 8th, peep a free talk at the National Building Museum: “Planning for America’s Future Infrastructure, Economic Development and Environmental Challenges.” (I know this sounds a teeny bit dry, but this is the kind of shit we need [...]

The city is VERDANT and cutoffs (high-waisted, bien sur!) are in full effect. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to fully embrace the season by making this deliciously chilly frozen ginger lemonade. [...]
