Happy Awards Show season everyone! This may be the darkest and coldest month of the year here in NYC, but it is the most glamorous time of the year for stargazing as celebrities suit up in red carpet finery out west. Thank goodness for the Oscars! I feel warmer just looking at the beautiful people! All the glitz and glamor on TV has me inspired to get a little sparkly myself. Wouldn’t this Tracy Reese Frock be perfect for a mid-winter black tie event? I love the metallic shimmery disks on the front and the sleek exposed zipper down the back. This kind of dress was made for January.
Home for the holidays! It’s time to pop the champagne and gather round the bar (cart) to celebrate the end to another great year and look forward to ringing in 2013. This beautiful cart would make any holiday gathering feel even more festive, fully stocked with all the classics of course.
Merry merry! See you next year!
Happy November! I don’t know about you, but my social calendar is filling up quickly this holiday season. It seems like everyone is having a party!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. This is one of my most favorite times of the year. But all these invitations mean it’s time to perk up my wardrobe. So, this month I’m on the hunt for a perfect casual party dress. Something that’s festive enough for a get together at the office or for stepping out to a cocktail event mid week, but also relaxed enough to wear all day. I’d love to pair one of the flirty new styles from Tracy Reese with these Kendra Scott Tavi black studs. Slip on my favorite black patent heels, pop the champagne and I’m ready for the holidays!
“Mom, relax. This isn’t what you think it is!” Sometimes you can admire a beautiful cradle for no reason at all! Inslee Haynes here, and this month I thought I’d try my hand at sketching/styling a baby’s space, all sugar and spice and everything nice. I believe that when it comes to designing for little girls, it can’t be too beautiful, too floral or too feminine.
Infancy is the only time in a girl’s life when she’ll let her mother both A) dress her, and B) make a pale pink wonderland for her to sleep in. So, I say go for it! In a few years she’ll ask if you can repaint it “dark purple sparkly”… trust me, I once asked for this to be done to my bedroom around age 8.
This sketch showcases the beautiful, ornate upholstered AFK Cradle. Isn’t it fit for an angel? And of course, I believe in starting them young when it comes to fashion education so these vintage paintings of Barbie are the perfect wall art for a baby room. I also included the beautiful Dash & Albert Rug. The vintage feeling floral reminds me of the beautiful fabrics and patterns that decorated my own bedroom when I was little (before the purple sparkle years).
