Despite my ultra fair condition I couldn't be more ready for some warmer weather and a ray of sun. But in my favorite world the crisp fall ideas are just beginning. Here is just a sampling of what is catching my eye.

Watch for the little car!...

dirk and maren from Matt Walker on Vimeo.

Well this little film is just incredible. Granted, it is about my ridiculous crush on Maren and how that blossomed into being wed. Matt Walker (brother-in-law, friend, film-maker) whipped this up. I feel as though he is really creating something unique. Little silent documentaries. I like that it means a lot to me but I feel like it would be so great to watch if you knew nothing about me. When his other films pop up after you have feasted on this gem, watch "stuff we did" and "wait up!" for more amazement. If you wanted one of these for something going on in your life.... that can be arranged. Thanks Matt.

Aaaah September...


Been pouring over the September Issues lately. Something I look forward to every year. More to come on what I am drawn to this fall but for now just a few shots from this layout in US Vogue titled "Sweater Girl" featuring Lara Stone looking quite lovely. The tones in the bottom photo are especially nice. Now, if the weather could not be 86 degrees today I would be feeling much happier. How about a nice crisp 58 degrees?

Treat in the mail...

Got my passport renewal in the mail. Then got my old one a few days later with some holes punched in it. So glad you get to keep it. Such great memories. Here's to making more! Can't wait to go explore again.

New Marc?...

After reading Marc Jacobs grooming tips in the September 2010 issue of Details I am really missing old Marc Jacobs. I am so glad you are healthy and off all of the various addictive sauces. Also, I am glad you are into things that make you feel good. But really, between the AGONY of your hair replacement and the "having to be naked" for your new BANG! ad.... i don't know. Thank heaven you are still such a brilliant designer. Your Fall '10 show was so perfect (because you looked to your past).  Dear Marc, we only need one Tom Ford and most days we don't need him. Easy, boy. Easy. Love, Dirk.

Woo-oo-oo-den Chair...

I find this video and song rather hypnotic. In a good way.
