Jorge Colombo drew this week’s cover of The New Yorker on his iPhone (I knew there was a reason I got an iPhone) in an hour! He used Brushes, a mobile painting app, to do it. You can read all about it on The New Yorker's website.
I was turned onto Studio Foto by this photo on Style Me Pretty. They do awesome work. I especially love their Love Shoots! They're based in Connecticut, but I'm pretty sure they'll travel anywhere. If you're getting married or engaged soon, especially in Connecticut (ahem...) check them out.
Ever heard of ShoeDazzle? Apparently it's the world's premier shoe society. You can join online and receive one pair of shoes, picked out especially for you by stylistas, for 39 bucks each month. ShoeDazzle's Chief Fashion Stylist and Co-Founder is Kim Kardashian. Sounds pretty interesting and very cool. According to the site, here's how it works:
1. Take our Fashion Survey: It only takes a few minutes for us to get to know your style.
2. Our stylists pick 5 shoes for you: Based on your survey results, our fashion experts provide you with a choice of 5 fashionable shoes each month, from which you choose one. If you do not like your choices, you can select "Skip this Month" and you won't be charged for that month.
3. Choose the pair you want: We provide free shipping. If you are unsatisfied with your shoes, simply return them to us using the pre-printed return shipping label provided with your order.
I do have a few concerns with this society: 1. For $39/month, are these really quality shoes? 2. The fashion survey seems a little limiting (I took it). Would they really get a grasp of what I like from it (purple shoes, bottom row, second from right)? 3. Kim Kardashian.
Should I give this a whirl and document my findings?

Baltimore is full of unused, abandoned urban space. But Baltimore's Office of Promotion & the Arts has recently put up a Flickr site called the Baltimore Infill Survey in hopes of sparking conversations about how these spots can be used.
On the Flickr site, there's a template image of an empty lot (above). The idea is to pull the photo down and fill it with something useful. Here are a few of my picks. There are many more on Flickr and, of course, you can make your own and send it in!
I'm a sucker for swimsuits. And now that swimsuit season is quickly approaching, I'm on the lookout for a new suit to add to my collection. I've been swooning over this Burberry swimsuit for a few months, but am keeping my options open.
My search has lead me to one of my fav store: Anthropologie! This season they have a great selection of swimsuits. Here's a roundup of some I'm considering:
I'm not typically one for a one piece (yet), but these are just cute enough that I might reconsider. Love the obi belt and almost strapless (so it won't fall down!). These two bikinis caught my eye. They're both black/navy, but they have a certain flair. I love the button and one strap!
