We have just returned home from a coastal roadtrip. I’m always amazed at how much stuff we can cram into my little Ford Focus, so I can only imagine the luxury of space in this mid 1950s Ford Fairlane. I just know that trunk is full of great old stuff.
Being in a laid-back coastal village means I’m short on news this week. I was just too lazy to spend much time doing my regular internet reading. Unplugging is nice, from time to time. Try it.

- “The fashion press is in complete awe and fear of Lagerfeld and the Chanel marketing muscle,” Eugene Rabkin, on the website, StyleZeitgeist.
