THESE ARE MY BOOTS
These are my boots. I wear them every single day when it’s chilly. They have holes in the soles, must get that fixed. They are Rachel Comey boots and she makes a damn good boot. See for yourself at her sweet ass website. Worth every penny…a re-sole and they’ll be good for years.
LET ME BORROW THAT TOP
Was hanging out uptown yesterday and stopped by Ferragamo. As you might recall, this was one of my favorite collections from Fall 2010 and that sweater was one of my favorite pieces. It’s in the fifth avenue shop for a mere $1300.00 and is the softest most comfortable thing ever. I have $5.00 saved up so far.

THEODATE POPE RIDDLE
DISCLAIMER: Today is my mother’s birthday, so send good thoughts out to the world and reblog this like crazy so she feels special. This post was her suggestion. Most of you probably won’t know who Theodate Pope Riddle is, so let me enlighten you. She was one of the first women architects in America and paved the way for many women working in the field today. She graduated from Miss...

FLEUR DELACOUR, HARRY POTTER WEEK
I am so frightfully tired this morning and I have no idea why. I need to get it together because tonight is the most important night of my life thus far, the premiere of Deathly Hallows. Today, let’s take a look at quarter Veela Fleur Delacour. We’re first presented with the Beauxbatons student in The Goblet of Fire but she comes back strong towards the end of the series after...
BELLATRIX LESTRANGE, HARRY POTTER WEEK
Continuing the trend of Harry Potter Week, let’s re-examine Bellatrix Lestrange. She’s probably my favorite character in the books and who can deny the genius behind Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal in the films? Sure, she’s a killer and sure she’s mad but aren’t the mad ones always the BEST ones? Can’t wait to see how HBC turns it out in Deathly Hallows....
MEANWHILE, OVER YONDER
Ahoy! Just shamelessly plugging myself as usual…been tumbling random images and semblances of thought on my personal blog. It’s mostly just images found in my iphoto, cell phone and rants. Check it out at http://roguebicycles.tumblr.com

PROFESSOR TRELAWNY, HARRY POTTER WEEK
Good Tuesday morning to you all. I hope you’re enjoying your week thus far as we continue to celebrate the fast approaching release of Deathly Hallows. Good god, I was in the seventh grade when the first book came out and now at nearly 25, I can’t contain my excitement. Yesterday, I received quite a few requests for Professor Trelawny…so, like…here she is. Professor...
HERMIONE GRANGER, HARRY POTTER WEEK
As you well know, I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books & films. With the impending release of Deathly Hallows, I’ve decided to dedicate this week to our favorite Harry Potter characters. Many of them have made appearances before, including my all time favorite post, Luna Lovegood. Today, I tried my hand at Hermione Granger. Hermione was exceedingly difficult because the runways of...
ROSALIND, THIS SIDE OF PARADISE
Thank you all for the many suggestions, keep ‘em coming! Today I bring you Rosalind Connage, the second love of Amory from This Side of Paradise. She’s a New York City debutante, and sadly I know quite a few girls just like her. They’re born rich and will do anything to stay rich, despite the consequences. Rosalind eventually broke off her love affair with Amory because he...
