Power Monday: Linda Rodin

Today’s Power Monday EDF is…Linda Rodin!

Why she kicks butt: This lady is a “veritable slice of fashion history,” as her ontheinside.info biography says. I couldn’t put it better myself, so I won’t.

10 things you might not know (source, except for the last three, where source is linked):

  • Linda has lived in NYC her whole life, but was introduced to fashion in Italy as a teenager.
  • She met Twiggy and Verushka on her stay in Italy.
  • She’s a stylist for all sorts of A-listers, from Revlon to Victoria’s Secret to Halle Berry to Adriana Lima.
  • She owned the first ever boutique store in Soho, which was called “The Hop Shop”.
  • Rodin has a home-developed line of eleven essential-oil-based facial moisturizers.
  • She doesn’t buy designer clothing for herself.
  • Instead of splurging on herself, Rodin donates her money to charities such as Housing Works, or to family members in need.
  • She loves the color pink.
  • She has a sparkly hatpin collection.
  • Her poodle’s name is Winky.

Have a fab evening!

Wishbook Wednesday

Everyone knows there’s no better way to start off the morning than with some Kanye, so to kick off this Wishbook Wednesday I give you New York Magazine’s mashup of all the “Huhs,” “Hahs,” “Hehs,” and “Henhs” from his album Watch the Throne.

Still reading? Glad I didn’t lose you. Here are some other things on my mind this week:

1) The new Bligh Skyscraper in Sydney, Australia

Helloooo, sexy architecture. This building commissioned by the Dexus Property Group is the greenest skyscraper in Sydney, achieving the highest possible score in Australia’s Green Star standard. The design is solar-oriented, so it creates advantageous sun and shade. It has a 28-story atrium that floods the building with natural light. There’s a patio on the 15th floor and the roof is green-planted with fresh air and views of the Sydney harbor. I want to work here!

2) These Miu Miu leather platform pumps

I can’t find a picture licensed to share, but you should go take a gander because they’re preeeeettty, if pumps are your thing. Unfortunately, these fall under my “I-would-need-to-rob-a-bank-before-I-could-afford-these” category.

3) Blue Bottle Coffee Company

I’m definitely trying this place the next time I’m in San Fran. Named after the first coffeehouse in Central Europe, these organic micro-roasters “roast coffee on vintage gear, put it in compostable bags, and still get it to our customers within 48 hours.” If you’re a coffee addict and a coffee snob (see: me), this sounds ahhh-mazing.

4) Star-Trek Sugar Cookies

In honor of the 45th anniversary of the first episode of Star Trek, Darla of Bakingdom.com whipped up these awesome sugar cookies. Though I must say that I’m not sure I could eat these if I ever made them. Partially because it would be an incredible feat of fantastic baking by someone who forgets to halve the salt in a halved cookie recipe. I would just want to put them on display, or something. That might raise some questions.

Happy Hump Day!

Wishbook Wednesday: Kate Spade, turtle shell racers, and more

Things in my mind’s eye this week:

1) Kate Spade’s Westward Collection, with Emily Current and Merritt Elliott

I particularly like the Adventurer Satchel. Now excuse me while I hold up a bank so I can afford to buy it.

Westward Collection

2) Thingiverse: a website for artists, designers, and engineers to share their ideas and designs, with Creative Commons or General Public Use licenses. Because who doesn’t want to build their own turtle shell racers?

3) Notes from the Road. This blog is Erik Gauger’s travel photography blog. If you need to escape for a second and remind yourself that there are beautiful things in the world, this is the place to do it.

4) Peugot’s RCZ Asphalt Edition. Oh-so-sexy. The perfect EDF car. Excuse me while I go hold up another bank.

 

A girl’s gotta dream big.
