Les Ailes Pourpres

les ailes pourpres

I haven’t seen this film, The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos, but I was entranced by this trailer, with its stunning imagery and Coldplay-esque music by The Cinematic Orchestra.  Produced by Disney Nature, the documentary was filmed in northern Tanzania in a region never before shown on film.

If you liked Planet Earth or the LIFE series narrated by Oprah, I think you’ll like this.  It’s an awe-inspiring reminder of what an amazing creation our planet is.

Yes to All >> Ingredients for Good Style

E. Tautz, whose awesome branding I mentioned back here, is sponsoring an effort to bring back snail mail.  As a part of this project, they are asking influential fashion icons and writers to write postcards with quotes or quips or lessons about style.  I loved this one above– it’s so true!  If you could have all of those things your style would be pretty unstoppable.  
PS – Patrick Grant, the guy who bought E. Tautz and it’s parent company Norton & Sons, gives an interesting interview on his own thoughts on style here.


Masters and Their Crafts >> Tartine

Tartine is one of my absolute favorite bakeries and a must every time I’m in San Francisco.  I actually am a little bit worried about what might happen once I move up there… I fear it could be habit-forming.  

Their bread is incredible, as are their sandwiches, desserts… pretty much everything.  It’s a bakery, cafe, and even wine bar, and I love the vibe that comes from people opening up a bottle of white at lunch on a Saturday.  With the line almost always out the door, there’s always a ton of energy, great people watching, and a cool European cafe-meets-San-Francisco,-specifically-the-Mission,-vibe.
Check out this video to see the owner and head baker, Chad Robertson, in his element.  Although I’ll warn you, this is dangerous to watch if you’re hungry.

Yes to all.

I frequently send my boss an email full of issues and questions and in response I get back, “Yes to all,” which is frustrating in its vaguery, but at the same time seems to imply (I hope) that I’m on the right track with everything.  To this girl’s outfit, I simply give a “Yes to all.”
