I Made This.

Holidays are right around the corner and I vow to make as many gifts as I possibly can this year. My biggest blog inspiration right now is PS I Made This. Confession: I am not crafty, I only pretend to be. But I'm tempted to do some thrifting to find enough rings to make one of these necklaces. For friends and family. Not me. I swear.

I couldn't agree more.


I Die.

Sorry, but this dress is worth the obligatory Rachel Zoe line. Holidays are coming which means I naturally begin searching for things that are covered in sequins. It's a sick tradition really. I might have to try this little number on the next time I'm at a nearby Forever21. Sequins AND a ruffled hem? Yes please.

Nice Rack.

I need somewhere to stash my Domino's, Dwell's and Maine mags. My whole office needs a major facelift actually. In the meantime, I think this rack would do just fine.

Life's A Struggle.

Witty letterpress cards cannot be beat. I've recently starting writing actual LETTERS again. That's right, not emails, but physical correspondences. I think this collection from Cute-n-boot is flippin' hilarious.

Cards, $5 each

Lo-o-oving these smoky topaz earrings. I think topaz is a very underrated gem. So lovely.

I Am Nuts.

I think $48 is a perfectly reasonable price to pay for a pencil case. Especially one of such beauty and grandeur. Please comment below if you disagree.

Yea Yea, whoopie pies are the new thing, but there's nothing as fulfilling as a good old-fashioned cupcake. And in honor of the halloween season, these liners would be the perfect complement to some chocolatey gooey goodness.

Evening Out.

I have a mild obsession with small evening bags. I don't go to more than a handful of formal events a year but I have quite a collection of them. I'm hoping I'll come up with a clever decorating solution to use them all one day soon. Until then, how about just one more for my collection? This one will never make my collection. Unless I have a date with Gonzo.

The Lost Weekend evening bag, $24

Fixer Upper.

This article in the Times blew my mind. It's about a Fixers Collective. Basically a group of artists get together with broken items and repair them into objects of beauty. I'm no artist but I attempt to be a fixer of things. Loose buttons, undone hems - tattered hearts. Now I'm just being dramatic but read the article here.

Little Things In Life.

Oh heavenly heavens. I have tasted perfection this morning. My friends Mands has been RAVING about this yogurt and I bought some over the weekend. I have died and gone to heaven. It is perfection in a tiny plastic container. Forget fage. I am telling you - hands-down best yogurt I have ever had.
