Last week as I walked into Arboretum, the beautiful boutique in Healdsburg, Ca, I saw what can only be described as the best window display I’ve seen. Behold the bumblebee yellow antique BMW smart car:
See what I mean? If you are in the Bay Area, stop by Healdsburg to try wines from the Alexander and Dry Creek valleys (so, so good!) and Arboretum for some Hare+Hart and this amazing little car.
It has been such perfect cool crisp fall weather in New York that it’s been making me miss going back to school – the new back-to-school clothes, the back-to-school lunchbox, the back-to-school supplies… I even bought some file folders yesterday at Staples, but it just wasn’t the same.
But since my look has been pretty much one bad hair day for the past month, I decided to get a back-to-school haircut. I went in with the intention of getting a long collar-bone length bob and somehow walked out with a true just-below-the-chin length bob. It was not my usual stylist and I think perhaps he misunderstood long bob with long layers for short blunt bob. Or perhaps I was just missing Emily so much that subconsciously I willed the stylist to make my hair short and swingy like hers.
Unfortunately, the blunt bob is not a good look on me (think me as an Asian soccer mom or the Joy Luck Club) and so I came home and hacked at it with the kitchen shears for a while. In the end I think it’s actually a nice change, and I have high hopes for the long bob it will become in a couple of months. And I have to admit, the swishiness is pretty fun.
