Monday Miscellany: Monochrome

Here are a random selection of finds from the past week, from books to songs to art, and anything in between. Mood for the week; Monochrome.

Fantastic abstract doodles by Brooklyn graphic designer Gabrielle Lamontagne. I've always had a thing for black and white.. 


Just finished reading the book Damn good advice by George Lois that is more of a collection of anecdotes than anything ( He is the man that the popular television show "Mad Men" is loosely based off of ) This is one of those books that will become dog-eared because of the density of information and inspiration it has to offer, Capital!

Sarah Vaughan- Broken hearted memories

Sarah Vaughhan, the queen of Jazz herself and such a beautiful song.

The "Capsule wardrobe" 

I've been toying with this idea for quite some time now. I tend to be a minimalist in terms of clothing so when i heard the idea of a capsule wardrobe i was immediately intrigued. The website UNFANCY has the ultimate guide to how to build your own capsule wardrobe, and i think i may be trying this for fall! 

Happy Birthday Audrey

Audrey heburn was and forever will be the embodiment of grace, elegance and femininity. One of my personal hero's, this past monday would have been her 86th Birthday,  Happy birthday to Audrey and her beautiful soul.

Wishing you all a great start to the week!
