Candy Girl… You Are My World

31 Mar
Love Candy Print $25, MadeByGirl

I have been eying this print above from MadeByGirl for quite some time now but couldn’t decided which color to get. Although I love color and simply can’t see decorating with out it, there is something about the subdued effect of the newly featured Seafoam Love Candy Print that I love. I think it would look absolutely perfect in my bedroom.

I recently discovered MadeByGirl when I first started reading Jennifer’s blog, and since then I have been following her postings for the past 6 months now. Her blog is AMAZING! Filled with so much C.O.L.O.R (which I adore) and tons of inspiration! Not to mention shes an amazing designer as well… check out her Etsy shop & her website for unique and eco-friendly cards & prints.

Enjoy!

The British are coming…

31 Mar

…and I couldn’t be happier!!!


TOPSHOP is (finally) opening in NYC!!! Mark your calendars, April 2nd is the Grand Opening, and lets just say Soho will never be the same. Sure we already have Zara, H&M, M.A.N.G.O. & Forever21, but Topshop has Kate Moss! That, and well, its just plain exciting that its the first one venturing across the pond, to The States.

Since I can barely keep my wallet closed in anticipation of the opening, I have been searching the website looking for must have items (ones that will hopefully be there after opening weekend). Come’on… Yes. I love fashion, but do you really think I am going to purposely pack myself in to a over hyped store, only to have to fight to the death for the last dress in my size… then wait hours upon hours in a line that seems to be moving nowhere, all in the name of fashion… You bet!!!

Early bird gets the worm! See ya at sunrise…

…Where skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true.

The lullaby continues… suddenly, its a twister…. then Dorothy hits her head and falls fast asleep… awaking to a bright beautiful land. The Land of OZ. Well after a long cold Winter, I’m just about ready to drop a house on some… JUST KIDDING.

If These’s Walls Could Talk…

19 Mar

I came across this “fashionista” wall paper a few weeks back and every since I have been killing myself trying to figure out what website I found it one. I can’t for the life of me remember. I so wish I could find it again. I would love to wall paper the inside of my closet with this print. How fabulous would that be?!?


If only, these walls could talk… they would tell me where to find this wall paper!!!

Plastic Never Looked So Good!

19 Mar

Barbie really does have it all; a new re-vamped wardrobe (designed by Mr. Lagerfeld), a hot upgraded Ken and looks that could kill. Not to mention the fact that she hasn’t seemed to age a day in the past 50 years…gosh, I want to be Barbie!!! I mean seriously, I have grown up loving her ever so… but that love has just intensified once I got a peek at this even more fashion forward Miss B.

Swoon worthy… I think so!!!

Below Barbie strikes a pose with model Baptiste Giabiconi as Ken in an exhibit which started March 9th running through the 28th created by Karl Lagerfeld. Now if I could just get a ticket to Paris, I would be all set! =)

When you look this good, who cares if your plastic!

Fashion-ami!?!

18 Mar

When I first read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes (I think back in 2nd or 3rd grade) I fell in love with Origami. Although I admit, I haven’t actually done any Origami since way back when… but I can tell you, that at the time, I had EVERY How-to Origami book that was available. What can I say, when I like something I really like it. The feeling may fade quickly (I blame that on my short attention span) but when I enjoy doing something, my imagination kicks in and I want to do/know it ALL… at least for the moment.

Well, now that you have a little background info, you will understand why when I came across this Fashion Origami Set, I thought it was the cutest thing ever and I had to have one. How cute would these little paper creations be propped up on my desk? So much cuteness, its hard to bare!


P.S. The paper is included with the set. How much better can it get?! =)

P.S.S. How cute is that Green dress above?!
