TGIF! What are your plans this weekend? It's set to be another bright and autumnal weekend in Brooklyn. I think I'm going to take myself to the Met to see the amazing sounding "Kongo: Power and Majesty" show (this rapturous review made me want to go so badly). Then I'll head down to my old Chinatown hood, wave to my friends/whistle to the caged canaries at our old corner fruit stall, and perhaps take my working boy a bagel (from here, obviously). Hope you have a beautiful one. My best of the net below.

I love photographer Alec Soth. Londoners go see this show

Vintage shopping with Hanne Gaby

Amazing Parisian street style from fashion week

All hail the egg cup (you know how I feel about boiled eggs)


In love with this moonphase ring

A fantastic (and inexpensive) alarm clock radio

Oh my gosh, what magic! 

I've been crushing hard on pink sofas recently. This is the one of my dreams

My fave Ulla Johnson dress this season (I lived in one of her pieces this summer- Exhibit A) . Also this one
