I had to bring some materials to my boss, at a meeting off site, today, which put me just a couple of blocks from one of my favorite stores in the world.
There is not a thing, not a single item, on the main floor of this place that I would not gladly accept as a gift.
Every single thing speaks to me.

The jewelry is spectacular, in a quiet way.
These celadon necklaces caught my eye...as did these slightly goth-y blackened silver pendants.

Foxes are very fashionable.

These three-fingered mittens were reduced to $100. They were cashmere - and might not itch me.

Cashmere itches me.

  Untitled

 Pearls as prayer beads? Yep.

  Untitled

Everything in the Matta department is gorgeous and flow-y and silky and light.

I'm thinking of a stripey scarf for spring.

  Untitled

The Gary Graham dresses were on sale. For $500. Sad, sighing emoticon.

Do you, sort of, love the love pillow? I sort of love the love pillow.

  Untitled

 It doesn't look like much of a dress but it was beautiful. It was the best non-color ever.

  Untitled

In this case? Treasure.

  Untitled

 Wonderful scented candles.

  Untitled

 Ditto. It's like Anthropologie (with whom I've broken up) on steroids.

  Untitled

 A dizzying array of soaps!

  Untitled

But my favorite thing for today: Exquisite chunks of recycled blue-green glass.
I want one of these most of all.

I feel that way about the ground floor of Barney's on Oak Street. Really, you could get me anything there and I would love it. Get on that, would you?

I don't know if I could sleep on that LOVE pillow. It seems more of a command than a sentiment. As in LOVE, NOW DAMNIT! Maybe a nice swirly-curly font wouldn't shout at me. They do look crisp though. I like a crisp pillow.

I have a chunk of pale pinkish glass about the size of a grapefruit that I found somewhere. It makes a great paper weight.

Yes, please -- to the Nora Kogan pink beads. And I don't even like pink.

Ahhhhhhh...

So, you're not going to spill the name of this store??

Divine. All of it. There's a store in that vein near us and sometimes I just go there so the atmosphere of all the beautiful things can soak in through my pores.

That shade of green is absolutely divine.
