inspiration
furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.

rescued posts from the blogger beyond: egg timer tips










Yes that was a long title, wasn't it. I am in the process of restoring my Egg Timer Posts for all of you time management enthusiasts and new readers. Due to Blogger mysteries beyond my control, some of the posts have become un-retrievable. That will never do! Time management is one of my favorite topics, and boy have I got some great tips for you. Involving an egg timer.

Think of your egg timer as your friendly co-worker. Or your imaginary boss enforcing a deadline. Set your oven timer until you buy yourself a cute one like mine. I found some great ones at the dollar stores in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Yes, you are just $1.08 away from maximizing your minimalism, time-wise that is. And then you can start maximizing your minimalism, fashion-wise too. gee!

Using an egg timer can indeed be a good strategy for limiting your time on certain activities. I personally do something slightly different, but with similar results. I use my weekly schedule software to create "project blocks" of time for my various projects. The reminder for the next appointment acts like the egg timer.

Of course, this only works if you spend a lot of time in front of the computer. You really do need something like an egg timer for projects like crafts that don't involve the computer!
