.and the tree was happy.

hannah plumb and james russell, two artists that work jointly under james plumb are the brilliant brains behind the below pieces. these pieces are simultaneously rustic and modernly cut, i love them.

.clouds in my coffee.

i'm so excited to see the collaboration doo ri is doing with macys. i have followed doo ri chung's collections since 2004; the cut and drape of her work is phenomenal, and the overall simplicity of the pieces is so impressive. i cannot wait to see the below, im sure there will be no disappointment.

.givenchy couture.

look how spectacular these pieces are...i really enjoy the edge to each of the dresses and how they look mean and beautiful at the same time-not ideal for ladies, but perfect for ballgowns. new york times review below. xxo, dany

.bbbbbennie and the jets.

its safe to say that the seventies has always had a presence in mainstream fashion. i love the richness of the color palette this decade possessed, it speaks to the overall feeling of the seventies-breaking free of tradition and reinventing cultural norms. below are great images from vogue spain and my new sunnies! when i put these on i feel like elton john belting 'bennie and the jets'.

.inspiration board.

one thing i love about my blog is it is a mobile inspiration wall for me-anywhere i am i can lug out my large, bulky, unorganized 'portfolio'-neatly tucked away on the blogsphere. below were some great advice bits from anna dello russo's blog on how to organize a closet. i love how candid each line is-if you get a chance check out the entire piece here.

also below is an image from miu miu's summer 2012 campaign; i feel it pairs perfectly with the quirkiness of ADR. enjoy!

Organize your closet like an old LIBRARY
each room must be devoted
to a subject, to an ITEM:

coats with coats, dresses with dresses,
pants with pants, skirts with skirts …
so you wouldn’t buy the same thing twice!

Don’t SQUEEZE the clothes on each other:
like flowers in the garden need their space!

You must accommodate the clothes
like in amazing SHOP.
So everything ‘ll look more INVITING
and u’ll delete the usual complain
“I have nothing to wear!”

.full saturday.

today was a great saturday spent with physical activity, vintage and friends, three of my favourite things in the world. i was able to get a great workout in and then a hike up camelback, where i was able to take a deep breath and recharge. this was followed by a good meal and a trip to my favorite thrift shop where i found these little treasures. below are my finds-a suede maroon clutch, anchor earrings and a silver choker-now out for a drink with friends. hope your all enjoying your saturday as well!

.baubles galore.

the dannijo line. i like jewelry in summer heat-in lieu of layers its the best way to personalize an outfit. their pieces are so unique-each would look perfect paired with a simple, clean-lined outfit. love love love.

.dresses and fancy.

my loving and lovely sister gave me the taschen series, "fashion: a history from the 18th century to the 20th century" for christmas and i haven't been able to put them down since. they are the most beautiful and informative books on fashion and design ive read. each page is filled with notes on designers, their patterns, inspirations and specific techniques - a great escape.

now, which one of these frocks should i wear to work tomorrow??

pieces by daimaru dior, jean-paul gaultier, christian dior

.shhhhh, favorite shopping sites below.

one of my new year's resolutions is to share more of my online shopping spots. i am always looking out for the best deals and love that online shopping gives me that opportunity-with the added benefit of free shipping and promo codes. below are a few of my favorite sites-hope you enjoy and find something fun!

xxo, dany

asos.com - uk based online store. fantastic clothing and incredible pricing.
yesstyle.com - southeast-asian website. great for unique clothing and shoes. warning: runs small.
zara.com - spanish based store. i love the brick and mortar stores. but unfortunately none are near me. this site is perfect for clean-lined and simple pieces.
plndr.com - members only website with amazing deals on my favorite skater/alternative labels (ie. rvca, 80/20 shoes, insight, cheap monday). i would highly, highly recommend this website for great surfer-chic and urban clothing.
