A part of me wishes I could say that I'm headed out on the town sporting this glittery number (or maybe this one) but after a week of recovering from some not so mild food poisoning, I'm happy to say that I headed to a friends for a more mellow and intimate celebration. This year has truly been tremendous and I can't wait for what the next year has in store. Bring it on 2012! And Happy New Year's Eve Everyone!!!

Cozy Up

Getting ready for some time away in the mountains... makes me wish I had some of these items to really cozy up with.

Red Wing Shoe Factory Visit

Very cool video from the inside of the Red Wing Shoe factory in Minnesota. The leather sewing and shoe making is totally inspiring.

Feeling lucky to have such great friends and family - who love and support me - who cheer me up when I am down - and who motivate me to be my best. Thank you. You all know who you are :)

Collar Necklace

{statement necklace made from old scarves}

I'm so excited to share with you the final piece of a collection I did for Scree Magazine this past summer. Scree is a new magazine, that curates the latest in art, film, design, writing, science, photography and just about anything fascinating you can imagine! They just published their first issue (see it here!) and I'm so excited to be a part of it! Big thanks to Scree Creative Director and always-fabulous Carissa Carter for including me!

See the first two pieces of my Braided collection here and here.

Perfectly Whimsical

Wouldn't this dress make the sweetest party dress for the season? Too bad I don't actually have any formal  holiday parties to attend.... next year!

Ski Party!

Sorry for the lack of posting this week... been extremely busy with work... But last night I got a break and was dancing the night away at a Apres Ski Party! Here's a photo snapshot from late in the night - more polar bear accessorized photos to follow :)

{is this a possible christmas card photo?!?}

Wilderness Retreat

Although it's winter sport season - the Clayoquot Wilderness Restort in Tofino, British Columbia looks like the most peaceful and serene place to be in the summertime. Is it too soon to plan a summer vacation for next year?!  I just love these furnished log-framed tents!

{this also reminds me that I so badly want me want to plan a trip to the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs sometime soon!}

Glitter Dress

As my friends and I start to get our plans together for NYE of course I'm thinking "what will I wear??" And something like this silver sequin dress is definitely top of my list. What do you think? Is it festive or a little over the top?

Hardware Store Necklace

While on vacation this past week in the mountains I used the opportunity of having limited supplies to make this necklace using only what I could get at the local hardware store. I bought a variety of chains and several neon spray paint colors - after each chain was painted I cut to length, looped the ends together on a carabiner and voila!

Festive Lights

Since I've been coerced into not having a christmas tree this year... I've been looking for fun and easy ways to make our place feel more festive. Simple white lights around a mirror like this one really seem to do the trick - I think I might try it out! What are your ways of making your home feel festive and warm for the holidays?!

White Brick Mediterranean

Totally in love with this 1920's Mediterranean-style home by Jessica Helgerson. The rustic feel with pops of bright pink, orange, and blue are stunning. And that coffee table is amazing! I just love everything about this home.

Rack Wall Display

For some time now, I have been thinking about and designing in my head (is that the same as thinking?) wall decor for the largest bare wall in our bedroom. Actually, all our walls are bare - but this one is the largest and directly across from our headboard - just perfect for a large display like this one. What do you think? Is it too much for the bedroom? I love how cute the shoes and magazines look. And it seems so easily changeable for when the mood suits you differently... I think I might try something similar!

Pink Striped Clutch

I use a black "money bag" clutch from American Apparel almost every day and decided to make a similar one with a little bit more pizazz. So I sewed up this tan bag and added the painted neon pink stripes to add such a fun pop of color! What do you think?!

Cement Stairs

Just love these floating cement stairs.


Botanical Prints

These vintage prints on old book pages from the Etsy shop FauxKiss are really something else. A series would look great on a wall!

These textures are amazing! Really digging the laid back vibe of all these looks from Set for Spring 2012.

Sunset Stripe

The styling in this room is just perfect. I love the couch, the owl, the radio, and I am especially loving this Pendleton blanket exclusively for Urban Outfitters.

p.s. other Pendleton favorites here.

My Cape

Remember This Cape? Well, I loved it so much I was inspired to make my own! What do you think?! Made from wool and organic cotton - this truly is the perfect outerwear for fall and winter in the mountains. It's so comfy and warm ... I am so in love with it!
