And it's not because my mother's name is Janet...
The moment I came across this artist the other day, I knew I had to feature her. I want Janet Hill to paint my portrait. Not only are her oil paintings lovely on the eyes, her subject matter is just as intriguing. I want to live in one of her paintings. From her “Austen Dresses” to her still-life… she perfectly fits the feel I hope to present in this blog. Loveliness at...
I'm obsessed with 3.1 by Phillip Lim.
If I could only wear clothing from one contemporary line right now, this would most definitely be it. Reasons? See below. REASON #1 : love - love - love - love - there are no other words. REASON #2: 3…. 4… ++++++ Ok, so hopefully you understand WHY by now.
Can you PETAL me in?
I amore the flower trend that is going on right now, even though it’s not spring. And, I love the delicate beauty and details that go along with the current trend. It’s not just flower prints, it’s about recreating the flower and its essence. This allows the lucky wearer to truly have the illusion of wearing blooms, embracing femininity at its most beautiful.

Nice to see so much greenery and florals as each day we step closer to winter, things are getting more and more brown & dull outdoors.

I will go into this much more later (as I am much too tired to write the essay the topic deserves), but it is...
My Favorite Poem.
Last night, I attended a second open house at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture (before which they twisted my arm and I spoke in front of people AGAIN— gasp]. There was a bit of discussion on an evening dessert class to which attendees brought along their favorite poems. I began to quickly think about the poem I would have taken with me (had I attended) and I decided upon...

you know you're your mother's daughter when..
I mean quite possibly, I just happened to watch MANNEQUIN too many times as a child (best movie EVER), or have just taken my obsession with dressing people up and putting outfits together to a new level, but my mom and I fell in LOVE with the SAME exact object in the new Restoration Hardware catalog. When my mother shared with me a few days ago that I HAD to see the new Restoration Hardware...
