."Isn't my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972".

oh nostalgia. wildfox brilliantly brought us back to 1995 for their 2013 spring campaign. i absolutely loved this movie, the styling was so over the top, and naturally how i thought all girls dressed in beverly hills when i was younger. it was a perfect barbie-land.

.clutch i'd like to carry.

happy friday! charlotte olympia has channeled her genius into this clutch, which i think would be a super fun accent to a spring/summer look. i'm on the lookout for a similar style at a thrift store today....

.carven pre-fall 2013.

i had every intention to review several favorite pics from the pre-fall season, until i looked through my photos and realized that the majority of my picks were from carven. i love how structured and voluminous the coats are in each of the looks and how interesting the heel is; it reminds me of the walking heel in french films circa 1972. carven does a phenomenal job of making these pieces look thrown on and comfortable, and that always looks chic.

.the ruffled bunch.

i get ruffled easily. i was telling my boyfriend today that i still wake up frantic occasionally because i've dreamt i am back in college and forgot to attend an entire semester of math class, which results in me praying and hoping my professor and final exam grades do not notice my absence. this is not that kind of ruffle. it all started with the craving to have a ruffle on my next swimsuit bottom, you know, the girly ruffle that outlines the waist and thighs, not the toddler ruffle repeated across the bum. i started to look for what may have been inspiring this and realized ruffles were everywhere on spring 2012's runway. below are a few that i wouldn't mind waking up to

..............if only to take my mind off the failed math course i'm doomed to repeat.

.bedtime story.

my nighttime routine is very typical of most, but fraught with details and rituals signature to me. i wash my face, then brush my teeth, making sure my face is clear and clean of any mascara marks around my eyes with a q-tip and lotion and my teeth are gleaming white. night face cream then eye cream is applied next, dotted then gently patted in. if im being extra diligent i will then brush out my hair, then tie back up into a loose bun for sleep. one melatonin pill and goodnight prayer usually follows in hopes that as soon as i open whatever book i'm on (between william and sonoma dinner parties or one hundred dollar startup at the moment) will put me into a deep sleep.

below is a picture of the slippers (target x neiman marcus capsule collection) gifted to me by my boyfriend and my favourite silk striped pajama pants.

.2013! and the next...

new years is the best time to think about the beginnings and fresh starts in life you've been waiting and pushing back on. things that you continually 'table' and want to 'revisit' are suddenly top priority to get started. one resolution (albeit, a continuous one) is to expand this blog so it becomes a regularly visited site by like-minded creatives, style-seekers, and dreamers.

here's to 2013 and loves pretty things becoming mine (and yours) favorite blogs to visit, any recommendations are welcome and appreciated!
