Pierre Hardy 2011 Pink and Orange Wedge

by EkiuwaJ

Pierre Hardy Summer 2011 Collection, the Pink and Orange Wedge that I fell head over heels for…retailed at $980 dollars. Pricey to say the least, but this shoe de-fin-itely gave me a major SHOE-GASM. It speaks summer so beautifully, so for now she will def fit in with our Closet Dreamer Column. Feels great to dream, but I’d rather have reality.

In the NYC area and would love to view more of Pierre Hardy’s collection then visit the Pierre Hardy store located at:

 30 Jane St., nr. Eighth Ave.; 646-449-0070

Architecture |Harrison Street Residences by Dawson+Clinton

by EkiuwaJ

Before their was Journalism there was Architecture and I’d like to say that I dived head first into the art of architecture. I was thrilled by the designs, the structure, the texture and everything else. I knew that I had found the very thing I always wanted to do, well let’s just say that my heart still yearns deeply for it! I read tons of magazines and books on amazing architecture, and with each page I am inspired to build and design my future home. This design project here is from Dawson+Clinton, Genral Contracotrs who have been in the business for over 30+ years.

“…The Harrison Street project has taken them 3 years to complete, with many hurtles including, during the digging for the underground garage they found an underground stream. Through all the struggles they have completed a masterpiece in urban family living.” – Contemporist
