i was just thinking about how flower arranging is not my forte, and how i'd love to take a class, but it's gotta be the right class, you know?
enter saipu. she's a genius- with color, composition, and materials. and she's hilarious. if you're interested, this winter she has a "wreath-making class, a second and maybe third rendition of the ever-popular ranunculus study, and - my personal favorite - a dutch masters class (you don't have to be a master of anything to participate.)".
on top of it all, she's delivering a free arrangement once a week to a reader. just cuz. she had me at hello.

This past weekend, the Guggenheim Museum exhibited 25 finalists from its YouTube Play collaboration that sought to discover the "most creative video in the world."

Here are a few of my favs:

Designer Guillaume Henry presented the Carven S/S 11 collection to the delight of all the “Downtown” girls looking for that perfect pairing of easy and stylish pieces.
The mix of everything from simple button downs to sophisticated dresses and minimal solids to quirky prints are proof that the hype within the fashion industry is well deserved and will soon spread, once the Spring collection hits stores.
In the mean time, you can purchase some of the Fall pieces at Opening Ceremony.

And speaking of great antiques, there is a great article in NY magazine this week profiling design firm Roman and Williams, the couple behind the NYC Ace Hotel and the Standard. The Ace Hotel has my favorite bathroom in the entire city, and also the best cup of coffee (which isn't found in the bathroom but upstairs at Stumptown Coffee in the lobby). Did you know that they got their start on film sets like Addicted to Love (pictured)?
