Monday Morning Shopping Trip: A Saddle and a Dream

Haute Hippie Saddle Tee – $135 at

I love the casual/boho chic of Haute Hippie’s ethos, and when they throw in a horsy/Americana theme, I find them irresistible. Their Saddle Tee, is a fun follow-up to their previous Horses tee shirts, sweatshirts and strapless maxi dress. At $135 a pop, I may have to wait for a sale, but for now, I’ll just save my pennies and hope they don’t sell out. Next time, perhaps they’ll do an English saddle?


Unrelated, yet totally amazing, check out this knife set by Zwilling J.A. Henckels:

I’ve been looking for a new knife set, and wow….this is the Brad Pitt of blades.

Hand-folded steel, strong yet flexible laser-cut blades, solid and smooth handles, impeccable balance in the hand, African Blackwood handle for beauty; this is a set of a lifetime.

I would have to rob a bank to afford it, but one can dream. I think I may just go to back to Williams Sonoma and give one of these babies another test drive. Do you think they’ll let me cook an entire meal on the showroom floor? 😉

I’ll be teaching their Culinary Boot Camp Series in September. Too bad I won’t be demo-ing my favorite knives…. […]
