bibliophile + wedding dress clip!

by Grace Bonney

I’m married to one of the world’s biggest technology lovers. So when the iPad came out, it wasn’t long before it appeared in our apartment. I gave AC a hard time for getting one, but I soon found myself killing late night hours (and helmet-wearing pigs) playing Angry Birds on its shiny new screen. Even though it’s not my toy, I’ve already imagined pretty new cases for the iPad. At the top of my list is this “Book” cover from Scott Nedrelow. You can get it in three simple color choices (oatmeal, charcoal, and orange) for $99. Or, if you want to get fancy, you can get custom text or your company’s logo on the front for $109 to $119. If you’re in the market for something to hide your latest tech prize, click here for more info and to shop. Thanks to Stephanie for the tip!

Speaking of books, I love these sweet new book covers for Puffin Classics, the children’s division of Penguin. Much like the amazing covers Coralie Bickford-Smith did for Penguin, artist Daniela Jaglenka Terrazini created custom illustrations for this project. The collection will be out in October/November, so click here for updates about Puffin’s newest series. xo, grace

P.S: In 2008 TLC filmed me, my mom, my aunt and my friend Mindy for an episode of Say Yes to the Dress. I didn’t end up getting the dress or making the show, but they ran a three minute clip of us online. My mom’s accent is making me smile this morning so I thought I’d share the link if you want to laugh at how picky I am. It’s right here, just scroll down to “Magazine Deception”. For some reason they call me a “fashion insider”, but I promise I didn’t describe myself like that ;)
