The best kind of beautiful.

I’ve always been more of an Audrey Hepburn girl myself, but in the past year or so I have been watching a lot of old movies, including some Marilyn films. If there is one thing that girl could do, it was nail the “having fun while being undeniably gorgeous and flirty” thing. I came across this photo set through a friend’s pinterest post and couldn’t resist posting. Between the pattern, the lighting, and her incredible way of working the camera… they are truly amazing.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Hello lovelies!

In the middle of an intense, stressful week, this video is the perfect jovial break. Reciting the adorable Dr. Suess book  Oh, the Places You’ll Go!  at Burning Man last year. A bunch of hilarious characters that make you forget for a second that there’s a deadline at 3 and you are watching a bunch of adults reenact a children’s book.

Watch it.

Happy Champagne Thursday!

Happy Champagne Thursday lovelies!

Welcome (most of us) back to working and getting back into our usual routines. Cheers to almost making it to the first weekend of 2012 and it’s actually nice and sunny outside today in Portland, even though it is quite chilly.


P.S. Saw the photo above on Kate Spade’s Instagram (also on their tumblr here) and loved it. We all know it’s an award I’d probably win… especially if bubbly is in attendance! They have a great feed though if you don’t follow them yet, check it out!

The Color of Style

For quite awhile now I have been drawn to J Crew’s styling like a moth to a brightly colored, layery, sometimes-sequined-flame. It’s also not unknown that Jenna Lyons is behind most of the gorgeous styling and design over there. They started “Jenna’s Picks” awhile back (which I have even reblogged on here a few times) and it started a cult following of not only her closet and covetable items, but the designer herself.

Her style is such a smart mix of high-to-low, as well as just wearable items that make you feel gorgeous in your own skin. I remember seeing her at the Kimberly Ovitz show in New York last Spring and seeing first hand what a presence she has, and yet, how effortless it really was.

New York Mag did a great article on her for their Fall issue, and you can find it online here. A great read about her journey with J Crew, and I can’t even handle how cute her little man is! When big companies can start to feel cold and corporate, she is a breath of fresh air as a face of the brand. Check it out!

New addition

I have always been a fan of the brand Noir, but have never purchased anything from them. The other day, they popped up on Gilt (which they do from time to time), but for once there was something in the selection that caught my eye. It was the single giant stud bracelet in red. Usually I feel like the stuff I lust for never shows up on those sites, so I figured I’d give it a chance. I’m thinking I’m a fan, mainly because everyone aroudn the office can only think of the word “crazy” to describe it (usually a good sign around here)…

What do you lovelies think???

[Ps. The other bracelets are (in order from left) from Chicago boutique in Wicker Park, Joomi Lin from Opening Ceremony, Madewell, and Kate Spade]

Because it is hilarious…

Nothing else to say, Happy Monday lovelies.




I am so in love with my new bracelet that the boy brought home for me from New York. He found it at Opening Ceremony and I couldn’t’ love it more. I had to snap a quick photo this morning to show it off! It’s an artist out of Chelsea named Joomi Lin, and apparently she has a whole line they carry at the store. I can’t get over how it feels so dainty and so aggressive at the same time, the perfect balance.


I have fun updates from my own tip to New York and the life-changing visit to see McQueen later this week, so stay tuned!
