Lamixx

My newest obsession are these tops from Lamixx. They are the ultimate in luxurious comfort and while they are minimal and timeless they still have a quirky touch that I just love.

Leigh Military Jacket

I've been lusting after this Rag & Bone Leigh military jacket. I'll just pretend that my reason for not getting it is because it's sold out (and not the small issue of price being way out of my budget)!

Advanced Style for Nowness


This video is so very inspiring. One of my favorite quotes is "you're gonna be an old woman some day... don't worry about it!" New words to live by!

Simple Gold

For a while now I've felt like I needed a simple and basic gold necklace to compliment my jewelry collection - which is mostly full of statement pieces. I stumbled upon Brvtvs (pronounced: brü-təs) and think it could be what I'm looking for. Clean and structured, I just love the simplicity of the details. What do you think?

Collection a Day


For those of you familiar with my jars project in school you already know about my deep passion for collecting, especially collecting the bizarre and mundane. So it will come as no surprise to you the love I have for the Collection a Day project by Lisa Congdon (which is now also a book). I've shown here just a limited number of my favorites!

Real Live Roller Derby




After having seen the movie Whip It two years ago, I was totally obsessed with trying out for a roller derby team and even rented roller skates and dressed up like Maggie Mayhem for Halloween that year. That's why, this past weekend I was super excited when my friends invited us to a real live roller derby. And it wasn't until about halfway through the event I realized it wasn't actually a sport for tough chicks, as I'd been lead to believe by Ellen Page, but more of an acting show akin to the WWE. Super discouraging for my dreams of ever becoming a jammer but certainly way more entertaining than I ever imagined. There were aggressive fights, fake punches, constant falling over the rails, chairs thrown into refs' heads, and even a man who looked like Mr. Monopoly. The game winning play was clearly a staged sequence of events, lead on by both teams - but left me standing on my feet jumping with excitement none the less. Roller Derby may not become my next weekend hobby - but you'll definitely find me next year cheering on the Bay City Bombers as they defend their title.

to: from:

I really love the art of gift wrapping as a bonus to giving that perfect gift. So last year for christmas, I hand made these to: from: tags from an old shopping bag. They added just the perfect touch to all the gifts I gave (many of which were also handmade).

Here's a sweet treat to get the St. Paddy's Day Party started! Seriously, shouldn't be required that we drink guinness all day today?

Teddyfish

I just discovered Teddyfish bags, made in Paris to be robust, simple, honest, and ready to get old. I am so in love with each of them! And don't these images from their lookbook seem so magical and lovely?

Braided

This weekend I made a simple braided necklace out of an old belt, some scrap fabric I had, and a small gold chain. I love how it adds a little excitement to an otherwise ordinary outfit!

Ace Hotel & Swim Club

I'm so totally in love with the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs. Having only been to the desert a few times, I'm not sure when I'll ever make it there. Maybe some day I'll get my act together to plan a trip down there coinciding with coachella!

Notes

Last year for my birthday I decided that instead of spending money on thank you notes I'd make my own. I used only items that I could find in my desk drawers, including a 1" diameter hole punch, alphabet stamps and textured red paper. A few quick stitches on my sewing machine and voila! hand made thank you notes.

Wall Mounted

After lusting over this paper zebra head from anthropologie for several weeks I finally was motivated to buy. In the end we got both the zebra and the rhino because we couldn't get just one right? I'll do a follow up post ones we get they are delivered and up on the wall!
