The List : SPRING

Spring is in the air and we’re dreaming of warmer weather and new adventures. Here is what’s on our list this season.



We’re loving the late 60’s/early 70s look we seem to be seeing everywhere. Flirty baby-doll dresses with groovy gladiator boots and a little something underneath.



We’re lightening things up for Spring with something new from Nick Hornby. Since he got it so right in High Fidelity and About a Boy, we’re hoping he does it again in Funny Girl.

On our nightstand.



A warm March day is all the excuse we need to grab a spot on the patio at Gracias Madre. The first hint of sunshine will find us feasting on their Flautas de Comote and Coliflor Frito. The food is so good, you’ll never guess it’s vegan and super-healthy.




Provocations: The Architecture and Design of Heatherwick Studio at the Hammer Museum. The incredibly inventive Heatherwick Studio has designed everything from the cauldron at the London Olympics to roll-up bridges to handbags. And it doesn’t hurt a bit that admission to the Hammer Museum is always free.

The work of Thomas Heatherwick on view now until May at the Hammer Museum.

On view now until May 24 at the Hammer Museum. Heatherwick Studio’s UK Pavilion, Shanghai Expo.

A weekend at the BNP Paribas Open in the Desert. All the world’s best tennis players in one place without all the Grand Slam red tape. We never miss it and neither should you!

We know our game would be much-improved with this racquet. :)
