Is looking through heaps and heaps of ribbon, trimming and notions your idea of heaven? YES? You're not alone! Get your crazy person ribbon fix at M&J Trimming, where they are having a massive warehouse sale, in store only. Founded in 1938 by my husband's grandfather, M&J is a NYC/Garment Industry institution ;) They are clearing out some of the warehouse to make way for new stock, and thousands of items are on sale - all for $5 a roll. They are bringing in loads of new stuff every day.  I popped in yesterday and shot some photos. David was like "Nicole, please don't take any … [Read more...]

MAKERS | Garza Marfa


Even though I'm a NYC girl through and through, I love this aesthetic so much. My heart belongs to the American West. So much. Anything brown leather, you can pretty much sign be up for. After living on the West Coast for several years, designers, Jamey and Constance, moved to Texas while they designed and created furniture for the renovation of the Hotel San Jose in Austin.

We filled ours with tons of food- I cooked thanksgiving - and HOLY MOLY GOOP re-grammed my holiday table! (I'll probably do some kind of table setting post soon about mixing and matching vintage table wares, I think.) We also spent some time up in NJ with the family... bowling, running through fields, eating in diners, at the movies, by the fire,  you know, Jersey Stuff... and then back to work Monday like a ton of bricks!
