Friends + Family + Places + Travels

This week in Instagrams.


Top to bottom, left to right…

✚ I’ve been meeting my father for weekly lunches when time permits. We have great conversations, mostly about art and design theory. I do a lot of listening and try to learn as much I can. I walk away from every lunch thinking about something in a way I’d never considered before. A side bonus of our lunches is that I’ve started walking to parts of Manhattan I don’t usually have any reason to go to. I love 7th Ave above 50th St.

✚ Oh, Bruno. This guy has a super-short haircut right now, and he looks über cute. (That pillow is made by Nell & Mary in Portland. It was a gift from Jen.)

✚ Did you know Van Leeuwen has coconut/cocoa butter-based VEGAN ice cream now? Yup. Bourbon & Tahitian Vanilla and Michel Cluizel Chocolate…and they’re working on more flavors. Their Brooklyn location is right outside my subway stop, so I have to resist getting a cone every single day!

✚ My walk to the subway in the morning usually takes me down Bergen Street. When I was making this same walk ten years ago, the block between Court and Smith didn’t have much going on. Now there’s 61 Local, The Invisible Dog (pictured), Recession Art, RAD’s Beam Center

✚ I don’t need this t-shirt, but maybe you do? It’s at Aritzia. You’re welcome.

✚ I cut my bangs at an angle again. It’s always the late, sleepless nights when I start cutting my own hair. I should do it more often. (That cocoon is from RVCA, and it’s super-comfy. Too warm for this time of the year, but I’m not letting that stop me.)

✚ My dear friend Roger is in town! One of the nicest things about living in New York is that all of your friends (well, almost all of them) wind up visiting eventually.

✚ I forgot how much I love Schiller’s Liquor Bar. I know it’s fake-old and manufactured romance, but it’s beautiful all the same. Even the bathroom is perfection. They make a mean Pimm’s cup, too. (Fellow vegan-eaters, don’t be put off by the menu! Order the roasted cauliflower with a side of broccoli rabe, and maybe also a side of fries for good measure. They know what they’re doing!)

✚ I don’t drive, but if I did, I’d like to drive this. My parents had a VW Microbus when I was kid, and I’ve always thought old VW are really cool-looking. This orange one is parked outside of these two wood-frame houses on Dean Street that I’m always ogling. I know vines are bad for houses, but they sure do make for a pretty picture.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

    OMG have been a fan of Le Roger O’Donnell since you posted that notice of his wonderful album a while back. Bought the album and love him thanks to that post. Best wishes for a wonderful visit for both of you!

    What paint color did you use on the upper walls in your upstairs bathroom? Is it Moonlight White as well?

    • Anna @ D16 August 12, 2013 at 4:52 pm

      Yes! All of the white walls in the house are Moonlight White.

    Um … at first glance I thought your friend Roger was a printed picture of James Spader that you had put your face next to, haha! Sorry about that! Ah – just followed the link and I will now spend the afternoon learning about Roger O’Donnell 🙂 x

      HAH! Yes, he’s been getting that comparison for years.

    One day, when I do not work for a company with a “look” i have to follow, I will give myself some angled bangs! They look AMAZEBALLS

    Wow, someone else who adores the bathroom at Schiller’s! I am in love with it.

    And your bangs look super cool.

    I had the pleasure of owning a ’66 Beetle for a few years but now have to have a ‘normal’ car to handle the commute. I really miss that sound and smell.
