Antique Tea Set
Friday- Happy Thoughts: My mom found me this beautiful antique tea set at a market several weeks ago. I can’t wait to see it in person! It’s so dainty.
I will never forget the darling toile bag my mom purchased me when I was very young. It was a black and white print with a large hot pink H embroidered on the side. It was girly, fun, and youthful. I have been wanting to add a toile print to my new townhouse, but haven’t been exactly sure how to incorporate it. I am finding my style today to lean a little more clean and modern. Most...
Marc Jacobs Disco Queen I haven’t been into Halloween costumes in a long time. Maybe it’s because I’m nostalgic for the costumes I wore from the Disney catalog and Storybook Heirlooms as a child and can’t find anything that quite compares. Additionally, whenever I do something, I have to try it a different way than everyone else does, so buying a costume right off the...

i am love - style
I am love movie. I was lucky enough to see a sneak preview of this film back in the spring with my friend Melissa. The beautiful style of the film has stuck with me ever since. After reading the new T Magazine today on Milan, I was instantly reminded of the feel of this lovely movie. The fashions were so impactful and Tilda Swinton was striking in nearly every scene. Italy certainly has...
Twiggy by photgrapher Barry Lategan, 1966. This is the picture that made her career. Twiggy. You win. Ever since I started this blog two years ago, my mom has been begging me to write about Twiggy. Because she asked me to write about her and it was not on my own accord, I said no (over and over again). VOGUE cover - 4/15/1967: Famous fashion model Twiggy was featured on the ...
The Katie Ermilio Collection
I hope to someday meet Katie Ermilio. I absolutely love her designs! I fell in love with her aesthetic after simply seeing a small spread on her on Rue Magazine. She certainly does a great job with making the old new again and I love her experimentation with bold colors and shapes. Katie was kind enough to send me her Spring lookbook and I can’t wait to see more! The best...

Shoes with Bows.
Oscar de la Renta Jeweled Buckle Satin Sandal at Neiman Marcus What I’m loving now: SHOES WITH BOWS. This fall, I found my dream shoe. The shoe that has inspired this entire post. This is a shoe I would jump oceans for (or try). It’s timeless, elegant, feminine, and eternally chic. TRULY. I adore the bow on the back. Admit it, isn’t it just Audrey Hepburn gone de la...

Ralph Lauren - Fall 2010 Bookshelf glamour - today I read a lovely article by Rita Konig who is now contributing to the Wall Street Journal’s Saturday edition. She did a beautiful piece on how to make an office more chic and yes, less “office-y”. I noticed the desk above right in front of the bookshelves, part of the Ralph Lauren Fall 2010 Collection photo spread. Mary...
