I Love Weekends!

Hey y'all!!! MY MY It's been a long week, but yesterday was one of the happiest & loveliest days I've had in awhile... it was also so great because I ran into both Ethan Hawke & Ben Stiller who were EXTREMELY adorable... Anyhow, here's a tribute to the weekend :)

Gwenyth's continued report on some true Nashville gems... Makes me want to road-trip on down there pronto!

WooHoo, everyone go out and get The Selby Is in Your Place!

This exhibition is almost over and I need to see it before it's done...

Oh shiaaaat, 'Everybody Knows This is Nowhere' looks pretty freakin' amazing!

I walked by this yesterday, and now all I want to do is go!!

I adore the Spring 2010 DVF Catalog!

I am so envious of Wendy Burden's airy and lovely home... makes me yearn for some fresher air :)

Lovin' these bags for spring...

My best friend Erica is back in the city tonight - she has been living out in Montana for the past couple months, skiing, snowboarding, riding her bike everywhere & hiking... I think we are going to go here for some oyster shooters...

ALSO, I am leaving for ROME tomorrow evening! I will try to keep up posting BUT suggestions are welcome, so if you have been, I'd LOVE your insight!

I am getting SO excited for summer, as the weather has finally gotten so lovely here in New York. Yesterday, I walked through Madison Square Park and everyone was sitting outside, enjoying their Shake Shack burgers & beers, in the warm sunshine, and it was just SO lovely. Here are somethings I want to do this summer....

1) I really want to take a trip to Nashville, TN and really engage in the culture (food, music, sights...) Gwyneth Paltrow just did a write up on her blog GOOP, and it makes it seem so freakin' cool. It's a pretty short drive, and I think it would be so fun to go with a great group of friends.
2) I want this bag to wear out to the beach or on Central Park Picnics.
4) Maybe try out a public pool. I haven't been to one since I was a little girl visiting my family in Germany!
5) See as much live music as possible! Outdoors or even indoor at my favorite place.
6) And, spend as much time at the beach as possible!!

have a lovely one, y'all. xxp.

Vintage A&F

The other day when we were shooting at Canoe Studios we found a stack of vintage Abercrombie and Fitch Quarterly magazines... I had completely forgotten about them (when I was younger, I used to blush and get all embarrassed when looking at them), and we gushed over all the hot models who we recognized from our more recent ads... they looked like such younguns, but beautiful ones at that! Just thought I'd share some of the sexiness ;)
big hugs xxp.

The Weekender

Hey y'all... I've been so very busy so I haven't put much love into Parisian Laundry. So today, I am going to leave you with a bunch of cool stuff from all over the internets...

NEED this dress.

Dreaming of Morocco. Also, been listening to Jackson Browne's "Something Fine" A LOT lately, so that helps... This hotel looks like paradise.

Beautiful playing cards.

I'm dying to drive up here during my week in Roma.

I read this book over a couple cold December days. Now they are thinking of making it into a motion picture! Cool!

Looking forward to this exhibition.

Also, stay posted on tumblr.
Wrapped up a 3-day kids shoot at Canoe Studios on W.26th Street. Lovely models, clothing, sets & photographs. FUN!! Now, off to wine, relaxation and many errands this weekend...
