ORPHAN BIRD

August 31, 2014

ORPHANBIRD

 “With our imagination reversed to the past we move forward into the future.”

I am all about the Orphan Bird aesthetic. I mean, just look at these photos from their SS14 collection. They design according to timeless tailoring and against the trends that fast fashion so loves to follow. Each of their pieces is created in Europe in limited quantities in order to ensure high value and quality. Not to mention, they draw much of their inspiration from their respective cultures (Italian & Swedish) which explains their completely unique and magical designs.

In other news, summer is almost over and I don’t know when that happened. I love the fall/winter season, but summer was just starting to grow on me and now it’s almost gone. I feel like I need to squeeze in about ten more trips to the beach in order to feel okay with that. I’ve been working my little behind off on some wall hangings and hope to post an update on that in the next week or so. There’s some pretty exciting news that will accompany that post so stay tuuuuned!

SALT SURF

August 28, 2014

SALTLIFE

Something you may not know about me is that I love watching documentaries, but more specifically skate/surf/snow/dance documentaries. I’m a complete sucker. So, recently while on one of my documentary binges I decided to browse a few surf blogs. Well, what do you know I came across this little company situated in New York who not only has a pretty great blog but also creates some impressive (& completely functional) surfboards and clothing. If you are into surf, or even if you’re not, check out their shop because it is just as design worthy as it is surf worthy. But probably more surf worthy-you can’t let those beautiful boards go to waste.

Gosh, this place is neat. & when I say neat I don’t mean that sarcastically. I mean, I want to go here, now. I’ve been thinking a lot about my Florida vacation and the camping trip to Utah that I took last spring. I know I just got back, but man am I ready for another adventure. I would love to head out to the west coast soon. Anyone wanna fund that trip? Thanks.

AGATA BIELEN

AGATA

Agata Bielen graduated from the Fine Academy of Fine Arts at the Faculty of Architecture and Design in Poznan, Poland. Her first jewelry pieces began as a school project in 2010, but quickly resulted in a debut exhibition at YES Gallery. Her pieces feature beautiful, raw, and geometric designs, inspired by the straight line-the basic unit of geometry. I love how elegant and simple her jewelry is, not to mention the incredibly stunning photos that accompany each collection. Those cube bracelets? Man, oh man.

DOWN TO YOUR SKIVVIES

August 13, 2014

SKIVVIES

We all wear them, so why be shy about it? I love beautiful lingerie even if all that happens to it is being worn under cutoff shorts and a t-shirt. I am the ultimate fan of unlined brassieres, and as a lady who isn’t lacking up there, I always get really upset when I can’t find a bra in my size. Of course, I could always go to Victoria Secret, but even they don’t carry unlined bras around the clock. They are “special edition.” So instead I spend my time browsing the net drooling over lovely lingerie brands and withholding from clicking “checkout” on that $250 black lace bra that I found.

BANGARANG, MR. WILLIAMS

August 11, 2014

robinYou were such a huge inspiration to me in all aspects of life and I will never forget the legacy that you created. You brought uncontrollable laughter and joy to my heart and so many others. Thank you for making my first drive-in movie experience unforgettable, for making me cry big fat ugly tears, for making me laugh until I pee my pants, and for making me believe in Neverland. Such a sad day to hear of the passing of this wonderful man and the effects that depression can have on the human soul. If you are ever depressed or feel alone please, please, please reach out to someone. You are loved more than you will ever understand. Bangarang!

BLONDE HAIR, DON’T CARE

BLONDES

I’ve really been loving the white blonde look recently. I got my hair done a few days ago and we lightened it up quite a bit with some ombre, but I’m thinking I may want to take the plunge and just go for all over blonde. Now that my hair is longer it seems like a fun and exciting change to make. We shall see!

ELLIS HOUSE

August 7, 2014

ELLISHOUSE

The Beligian inspired Ellis house had me “oohing” & “aahing” all over the place. This four bedroom, two bathroom home located in Kyneton, Australia and was renovated as a vacation house by Tracie Ellis, designer of luxury brand Aura Home. The home has a moody, magical feeling without being too overwhelming and closed in. I love the balance that was achieved with the dark and light and how welcoming every room feels. Plus, don’t you love the portrait of that man? He is so debonair. I wouldn’t mind vacationing living here for a while.
