Or at least Takashi Murakami’s monsters make me happy. Especially when they are placed into a fashion editorial for Harper’s Bazaar. I don’t have a whole lot more to say about it. I mean, look.

If you’re not reading Twenty6 Magazine, you’re a fool. It’s brilliant. And for their latest issue, they brought in the amazing artist/illustrator/adorable man Will Broome for a brilliantly English interview, along with some of his sweet and secretly dark characters to feature in a fab fashion editorial.
You can check out the entire interview here but allow me to present some of my favorite bits:
‘I was born in Nottinghamshire. My childhood was a very uncomplicated affair.’
‘I’m not sure if I’m an illustrator, I think I might be an artist.’
‘I am inspired by lots of things. Normally it’s stuff I see on toilet walls and the street when I am riding my bike. I still like things I liked when I was 11.’
‘Behind the happy go lucky facade, there is a darkness to my work.’
Augh, this editorial is so adorable and cool and adorable and rad. You can see the whole damn thing here.

I don’t write about wedding-type things very often. When my close friends have tied the knot, I’ve been sure to share them because…well, they were worth sharing. I was never a little girl who dreamt about her wedding day. Not that I was ever against the idea, though. In fact, I think it’s all quite lovely.
Weddings always seemed quite a summery affair to me. And they have been in my experiences. But when I saw the pictures of this faux dream wedding, created by the amazing people over at Design Sponge, I’m not only all for autumn nuptials (more room for darker colors, as is my taste anyway) but goodness me. Do you SEE these pictures?!
Leather jacket, super romantic dress, a motorcycle and a bulldog. If I ever get married, I want it to look a hell of a lot like this. With more margaritas. Because…margaritas.
Also worth a read, especially for those with somewhat alternative views on getting married, this great little essay called ‘Marriage Isn’t For You’.

Last weekend, I got to enjoy my dear friend’s Second Annual Rooftop Pumpkin Party high above the shop fronts of Chinatown in NYC. It’s a delightful, cocktail-soaked affair where fashionable pumpkins are carved, hugs are distributed and laugh are aplenty. As was my style last year, I bring the smallest pumpkin I can find and attempt whatever creativity I can for such a small space. (Give me a break, I’m not dragging a pumpkin up six flights of stairs.) Check out last year’s par-tay here, and this year’s party down there:
Looking for a wee bit of inspiration for your pumpkins this year? You may only be a day away from the big event but that is time enough to have a bit of a pumpkin party for yourself.
