Here's what the 7x7 editors were thinking about this week when they should have been at work.
The perfect color for fall, and the initials add a sweet touch.

Mirrored South Park unit
I cannot stop looking into this mirrored residential unit in San Francisco's South Park. So bold. Too bold, one could argue. But why not? After all, South Park is turning into a hotbed of daring residential design. A few doors down, one can find this unusual Victorian redo, complete with swings for dining room chairs.

For me, sexy on a man manifests in the following ways: Driving in reverse with confidence. Soft-spokeness. Broad shoulders. And mirrored aviators and a sharp suit á la the Sundance kid, pictured here on the cover of Lauren Goldstein Crowe’s 2012 book about celebrities and their sunglasses, cheekily titled, 50 Shades. (A smoldering photo of a young Richard Gere circa American Gigolo donning oversize rims is worth a daydream or two.) Thanks, One Kings Lane for bringing this statement on style and sway to my attention.

As sweater weather approaches (hooray!), I’m going into cozy mode. I scored a sample of this cashmere/silk blend beauty with an M.C. Escher-esque print in perfect pink-grey at a recent sample sale, and ended up getting the robe to match. You could say I'm feeling handsy.

Next week, 9/18, Pace Gallery in Menlo Park will present 12 seminal post-war artists, including minimalist master Hiroshi Sugimoto, brut art pioneer Jean Dubuffet, and industrial sculptor Louise Nevelson. It's an art history refresher course for tech millionaires, and a treat for art buffs to get close and personal with notable works.

Ok, it isn't exactly news. Sausalito-based designer consignment e-tailer the Real Real launched back in 2011, and has since raised over $40 million. And it's been touted again and again as a big deal. Being a highly tactile fashion lover, I prefer to shop brick-and-mortar stores. I like to touch things. But, when stuck on a long layover in the Minneapolis airport, what else is there to do but shop for shoes online? I now have the Real Real to thank for the 75%-off-retail Hermes knee-high boots I'm wearing at the office today. Conversion complete.
