Monday Mash-ups

Monday mornings are a chaotic free-for-all at my house. We grab some of this, some of that and try not to let the front door hit us on the way out. Below, six brilliant mash-ups to get you through the rest of the week.

1. Best new Tumblr blog for raising your guy's sartorial IQ: 

Menswear Dog.

2. Best new "hi-tech meets hand sewn" accessory: 

Kauffman Mercantile's Roberu iPhone 5 case. (Shown in rust brown.)

3. Best throw pillows EVAH:

ReplaceFace celebrity portraits from



4. Best new Old World/New World interview:

Lee Radziwill chats with Deborah Needleman and Sofia Coppola. Three cool chicks just sittin' around talkin' about Truman Capote, Andy Warhol, Grey Gardens and more.

 (If video doesn't work, click HERE.)

5. Best cartoon-meets-couture (cou-toon? car-toure?) blog:

Hey, Wear This to That.

6. Best "Prog Rock meets Nico" song:

 "Sing Sing" by Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle. (Hint: She's married to Roman Polanski.)

Hello Lisa

I loved this post and in particular the interview with Lee Radziwill.
She has a wonderful speaking voice which reminded me of Diana Vreeland "The Eye Must Travel" movie.. Have you seen it yet? If not, I highly recommend it.

Lee's voice was not what I expected it to be.

I know, right?
Years of smoking perhaps?

I think the Radziwill interview speaks volumes. Can you imagine being as lonely as she describes at age 11?

Although it's been one of those week and I haven't yet read a blog, I should have known to read yours on Monday to keep me smiling the entire week - the cartoons are priceless! Thank you for sharing and hope your week was great!

My truly very serious divorce situation that has been haunting me all day finally was relieved by the camel. The laughs began. Imagined myself striding confidently into court with that on!
Love from another creative,
