Our photo director makes smiling heaps of poo look fantastically chic.
I first posted about the collaboration between Edie Parker and Del Toro back in March. Luxury e-tailer Moda Operandi had just opened its pre-order list to score the line, called M’Oticons, which featured velvet slippers and acrylic clutches emblazoned with emojis. The emails between my fashion-minded colleagues and me flew back and forth with relentless abandon:
“These are amazing.”
“OMG, they have the red dancer lady!”
“I want the monkeys.”
“I wish they weren’t $340. Sigh.”
And then our photo director, Jess, chimed in:
“I BOUGHT THE SMILEY POOP!!!!!!!”
Yep. The poop ones.

Temporary tattoos are having a major moment right now (stay tuned for a roundup of our favorites!), and let us just say, they are So. Much. Better. than the ones you buy from quarter machines. We were first alerted to these metallic beauties when Geisha House owner Cortney Cohen told us shoppers were basically scooping up the temporary tats in droves: “People have been—no joke—OBSESSED with these.” And we can totally see why.

Those cute crop tops aren’t what you think.
See those crop tops up there? Cute, right? And how fantastic do they looked paired with a full midi-skirt? It’s a look that’s more put-together than shorts and a tank, and more unexpected than summer’s ubiquitous maxi dress. It’s my summer uniform — I throw on a light silk jacket and heels for work, and a pair of simple sandals for the weekend. But it’s not exactly what it seems …

Confession: I may be one of those people who, in a fit of excitement, buys herbs and succulents galore at farmers markets and then lets them sit on my counter for, well, basically their lifetimes. (That is, I eventually forget about them and they die.) To combat what seems like the inevitable, an artsy-cool planter is just the thing to incentivize keeping my plants alive. My saving grace: Zola’s Geometric Wall Hanging Planters.

Fishtown’s Toile Atelier is one of my fave spots. It’s owned by amazing local designer (and PMFP contestant!) Bianca De Pietro, who creates absolutely incredible womenswear. The shop carries other local designers that should know about, if you don’t already, and many of them will be feted tonight, as the shop hosts a huge summer party. (Ice cream and booze included.)
