happy friday! don't you want to join these folks at the beach? i do.

i don't know about you, but i definitely do the above move every time i go to the beach.

i'm heading to the Frying Pan after work (if it doesn't storm, fingers crossed) for some happy hour beers then to Atlantic City tomorrow for the day (i've never been even though i grew up in NJ, crazy huh? crazy) ... i might hit a slot machine or two (eek!) - crossing two (hopefully) things off my summer bucket list!

have an awesome weekend!

savage beauty.

"i'm a romantic skitzophrenic." - Alexander McQueen

as i mentioned on tuesday, i saw the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the MET. SO cool, interesting and beautiful. i highly recommend to my fellow NYC-ers (hurry, it ends august 7th). even though photos are prohibited, i managed to sneak a few (shh) ...

(all quotes below by McQueen via the MET exhibit)

"i like things to be modern and sitll have a bit of tradition."

"i find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists. i have to force people to look at things."

"it's the ugly things i notice more, because other people tend to ignore the ugly things."

"women should look like women. a piece of cardboard has no sexuality."

and my friend and co-worker, kelly, was able to get some great shots with her hipstamatic iphone app (thanks, kel!) ...

and some faves from the exhibit that i wasn't able to get photos of (love the antlers) ...

the above shoes are SO, unbelievably pretty (the photo doesn't do it justice).

if nothing else, watch this video -

his work is so unique, daring, intricate, tough yet delicate. he was an amazing talent.

p.s. sorry for the overload of adjectives! he was just that good.

happy thursday!

have your cake. and eat it.

there are so many wedding cake options ... between flavors, colors, designs, toppers ... how to choose? these are some of my faves. they're all so different and i like each one for different reasons. that's the cool thing with cakes, they can be custom made for every and any wedding (or party!) ...

and how adorable is this one with mini bunting?!

and a mini ruffle icing cake made out of cupcakes?! DIY here

i love this one - the colors, the flowers ... and hello, check out that cake topper! how cool and fun?!

most ridiculous cake?

actually, this one probably takes the cake (haha). but really ...

and lastly ... gold on a silver platter? so amazingly cool.

which one is your fave?

happy hump day!
