why don’t you?

Last night I finally got around to seeing the new Diana Vreeland documentary, The Eye Has To Travel. Get yourself to the nearest indie movie theater and see it because it’s truly fascinating (whether or not you’re interested in fashion)!

While I knew bits and pieces about the former Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue editor, I didn’t know she got her start writing a column called, “Why Don’t You.”  I’m dying to pick up this namesake tome but in the meantime, here are a few of my favorite why don’t you’s courtesy of everyone’s favorite fashionista.

Why don’t you…

cover a giant cork bulletin board in bright pink felt, banded with bamboo, and pin with colored thumb-tacks all you various enthusiasms as your life varies from week to week?

paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view?

tie black tulle bows on your wrists?

wear violet velvet mittens with everything?

P.S. why don’t you… take a virtual tour of Vreeland’s iconic Park Avenue apartment over on Architectural Digest?

    I love this post – I picked up a copy of The Eye Has to Travel (book) at the library this past spring and fell in love it! Driving down to Boston to catch the film just might be in order. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Great way to start off the week! I’m not sure when they’ll be showing this movie in Honolulu. I’m waiting patiently:) Until then, I may just have to order a few more books about her on Amazon. Ha ha!
