So, I’m thinking I’d like to start in with the feathers next year. Perhaps this Pluma feather hairband would be a good place to begin.

This past week launched the release of Waltz with Bashir, a film festival darling that has been earning rave reviews. Waltz runs the gamut of genres being animated, foreign and a documentary, but don’t let any of those labels scare you away from seeing this film, which deals with the first Lebanon War of the early eighties.

The film centers around Ari, whose recurring nightmares of being chased by 26 dogs lead him into believing that they share a connection with his Israeli Army mission in the war. As he starts to investigate this period of his life, which he has no recollection of, his memory starts to come back. The film is filled with haunting images of horror and beauty. Director Ari Folman has won many critics prizes this year and is also nominated for a Golden Globe.

The time has come–you can now get the Hayden-Harnett collection at Target.  I haven’t seen them in person, but the photos are seductive enough. Super vintage-y.  Plus, they only go as high as $49.99. I like this giant clutch (it comes with strings attached if you want to wear it on your shoulder) pictured above.  It’s pretty classy, as you can see, but not humdrum. It also comes in black.

Here are some other highlights:

The obsession of the week is Los Angeles-based trio Princeton. They released their newest recording The Bloomsbury EP over the summer. Consisting of songs focused on key members of the influential Bloomsbury collective that existed in the early 20th century, it’s been on heavy rotation since I got it.  The album features songs that stick in your head for some time after hearing, and who doesn’t want to hear a song about Virginia Woolf?

Catch them at Spaceland on Dec 27th with Bodies of Water. Here’s a song to sample from them:

Yesterday was the launch of an ongoing collaboration between Acne and Lanvin. The line is made entirely of the best Italian and Japanese fabrics and made entirely of denim. The line is available only in New York and Los Angeles. Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Juxtaposing the elegance of Lanvin’s couture legacy with the dauntless work-wear aesthetic that has inspired Acne for a decade, this collection is set to appeal to women and men of all ages.”

Here are some of the looks:
