Reading List

November 9, 2012

The sudden onset of gloomy  weather makes us want to spend this weekend cozied up with a  chai tea latte and these 3 new books…which one(s) are you getting?

1. Gypset Travel

Julia Chapin  (who authored our personal bible, Gypset) comes Gypset Travel, which captures the luxuriously bohemian life of the gypset traveller.

2. Petrochemical 

Veteran photographer, Richard Misrach’s latest edition captures 150 miles of the land that lines the Mississippi River- an area rampant with chemical production.

3. W The First 40 Years

The history of this legendary fashion and lifestyle magazine is chronicled in over 300 pages of glossy, editorial images accompanied by tart tid-bits from gossips columnists Suzy and Countess Louise J. Esterhazy.

Social Gypsy’s new client, a blog/diary called Lifestyle Lemonaid, is a racy mix of Sex in the City meets The Real Housewives! Brought to you by a beautiful 6ft blonde MILF named Nikki. This woman is absolutely hilarious, witty, smart, self deprecating (fav quality in a human – hate egotisticals) and gorgeous. We have a feeling we will learn a lot from this broad. Make sure to check her out – she’s got some serious juice (pun intended) – Lifestyle Lemonaid!

Can’t touch Tim Walker

March 14, 2010

We have blogged about Tim Walker before. The Alice and Wonderland photo shoot is quite possibly the best thing that came out of all the recent creative inspirations surrounding Alice. We picked up his book a few months back and still find something new every time we open it. It’s a masterpiece. There is no one even close to this guy. Buy Tim Walker Pictures now! You will thank us later.

OK ok…

OK the store on 3rd street is one of our favorites. We could spend hours in this gallery of ecclectic artifacts. Inside you will find the perfect gift, the latest photography book, an array of inspired decorative arts – among many other treasures. We also love the owner, Larry a Gyippy-like dude who has an eye for subtile detail, incredible steeze and maintains a whimsical vibe.
