Slim Paley Photo
This Friday’s Favourite:
Going to the Farmer’s market this morning and picking beautiful spring flowers!
I just plunked them in a bucket on the counter and took some photos of the early sun filtering through them.
Ahh- Life is GOOD!
So, I thought it might be a fun idea to implement a regular weekly feature because sometimes a girl needs a little structure in her life.
Not much mind you, think Spanx rather than a corset…just enough to be assured that if you pop by Slim Paley on Fridays you’ll always pick up some new ideas for your dwelling, wardrobe, bookshelf, pantry, make-up bag, or gift list.
It won’t be organized or have a theme, or colour scheme (it’s sounding more and more like the inside of my head) Just “Some Stuff” that’s good. Sound like a plan? Great- let’s shop!!
My new Favourite Magazine– INDIAN VOGUE
Ever since my trip to India last year, I’ve become addicted to Indian Vogue. Sure, some stories repeat from American Vogue, it takes about 3 months to arrive here and it’s not cheap, but the armchair traveling and exoticism is worth every penny! Until I can return there, this will have to do it for me.
My Favourite nail polish of the moment (because remember; Grown Up nails for 2010) is O.P.I.’s
“MY PRIVATE JET”
Well, first of all, does a name get any better than that?!
Secondly, I get compliments on it constantly, including one from a rather dashing fashion designer infamous for his impeccable taste (I slept with the bottle under my pillow that night 🙂 )
Caveat; It is more of a browny-grey than the greeny-grey it looks here. Actually it’s the perfect brown-green-grey-black-mushroom-mulberry colour (you can see why my painter hides from me)
Seriously, I have no stock in this company! And I hate the prices, but this is my Favourite Tinted Moisturizer – It’s just fantastic- the perfect consistency and right amount of tint for day and even night with a little powder.
Because no matter how much tie-dye, florals, fringe and antique lace I’ve worn throughout my life, I’m always going to be a Boho Gal at heart. Besides, this way, I can go into my dotage being described as “Eccentric” as opposed to “Demented”- just planning ahead…I’m a Virgo.
Speaking of Boho- whoah- LOVING Kenzo Fall 2010
I admire the daring of Antonio Marras mixing all that tweed, plaid, floral, pinstripe…
The shoes, boots and bags are wonderful too.

What I’m reading
Sargent’s Daughters by Erica E. Hirshler
John Singer Sargent is one of my favourite artists so this book was a must for me. This is a good review from the NY times, so I’ve just attached it in full.
