the six chicest things about october (so far) -

as usual, in no particular order,
our monthly roundup of the chic,
the impractical,
and the gorgeous
curated by your dictator,
the landis.

1. dahlias
my mother planted these in her yard (yard being a euphemistic phrase for "backyard acreage on a mountainside")
when she moved to north carolina.  i had never seen them, and they seemed like explosions of architecture
and scent and vivid color, as they came in every single color you could imagine.
these, suddenly blooming, brought out a flood of both memory
and joy.
 2. the new chanel lookbook
because karl knows how to work a look.
and a leather logo shopping bag.
  3.  lunch at dolores park cafe, at the counter
every thursday, for a month.  join me and see.  i'll be at the counter.
  4.  vintage shot of marilyn, before "marilyn"
perhaps the advent of celebrity culture.  perhaps the demise of western culture.
lovely, nonetheless.
5. the favorite find from the milan furniture fair
it's flashy.  it's intimate.  it's perfect for me.
6.  victoria beckham's idea of "travel attire"
love her, loathe her, the woman is flawlessly consistent.  and dedicated.
the shoes alone deserve their own post.
god. she has my life.

i can give a shit about posh but the face that she wears a dress and heels while traveling (as opposed to uggs, juicy sweats etc) makes me love her.

"explosions of architecture" so apt.
