I am so excited to feature Dabney Lee’s “10 Things” this week! This style setter is the talent behind the fabulous Dabney Lee stationery studio and Dabney Lee at Home which designs the loveliest personalized home accessories. I have admired Dabney’s fun, preppy, chic style for a very long time, so I knew that her list would not disappoint. It is as sassy and stylish as she is!

1. i must admit i am a bit of a junk food junkie and at the top of my list are french fries. i love them, always have and always will. 
2. people who know me know that i have a strange affinity for lucite. the clean lines, the way it makes color pop… i am addicted! 
3. shelter island, new york. my hubby’s family has been going there for years and it’s honestly my favorite place to be! 
4. lemon cupcakes, especially from buttercup bakery in new york. i love love love all lemon desserts, drinks, candy etc… but these cupcakes are something i must have at least once a month!  
5. j.crew is my favorite store ever… i am NOT KIDDING! i knew i had a problem when i got pregnant and one of the stores called to see if “everything was alright”, seemed i hadn’t been in the store for a while. 
6. the brooklyn bridge is just at the edge of our street and it’s so inspiring. i can sit in the park for hours and just relax looking at the bridge and the city in the background, it’s quite breathtaking. 
7. the barefoot contessa is my idol and i really could not live without her! ina garten exudes cheer and warmth like no other. her recipes are always spot on and so easy to make!
8. color… can’t live without it and would never even consider it! 
9. my studio is my haven- i love being there and creating and i could not do any of it without my mac. 
10. taco trucks. a life without tacos… you must be crazy, i wouldn’t even consider it!!!!

  1. What a great post! I have always loved The Barefoot Contessa but was afraid to try her recipes for fear they wouldn’t turn out right. I’m glad to hear that the recipes are both easy and enjoyable – I’ll have to try one soon!

  2. I LOVE THIS LIST! But I should’ve known, Dabney Lee’s gorgeous and colorful stationery and accessories would probably be on my own 10 things list…girl has some amazing style.

  3. Remember those crazy sales J.Crew had last year pre-M. Obama? We’ll never see those again. But, oh how I crave my fix. Still waiting for the Carlin Coat in Wild Blackberry to come back in stock and on sale. The color is a beautiful earth plum tone. Alas, No dice.

    At least I was saved from myself;-)
