Olivia Palermo. The girl we all hated weekly on The City (but secretly died over her amazing style). She's featured in an accessories spread in the January 2011 issue of Vogue Espana. News is also out that she will be creating her own fashion line while simultaneously filming a show about it. I'm eager to see what comes out of it.
When I was young and finally learned (with no help from my older siblings) that Santa was in fact, not real, my mom gave me this little card that I've held onto ever since. It's one of my favorite quotes about Christmas and helps keep the idea of Santa alive even though I am older. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
With the end of the semester looming darkly above me, this quote from one of my professors (poster design by Alan Dye - receiver of said quote) is helping to propel me forward.
Even though I have studied design and architecture for years now, I had never heard of Carlo Scarpa until now. My best friend is studying abroad in Rome (a requirement for her architecture degree) and I just saw photos from her recent visit to the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona. How gorgeous are these stairs? I 100% need them in my future home, even if they are against code.
Over the weekend Todd Selby released photos from Kate + Andy Spade's home in New York. I can't say enough how in love I am with everything. I was surprised to see the color palette lacking the bright colors Kate Spade is synonymous with, but their huge collection of art and accessories add such warmth and color to the space. Such an added bonus that Kate, Andy and their adorable daughter Bea were also featured in the photos.
Rue's second issue debuted today and as I was pouring over it, my jaw literally dropped when I saw the opening spread of Kelley Moore's office. The space is totally inspiring and 100% fun while maintaining a sophisticated look. The sparkle, colors, and textures all work wonderfully with the rustic, industrial bones of the space.
I think my favorite element is the pink flamingos.
Sign me up for those high drama curtains.
And I love love love the over-the-top sparkle from the disco balls and mirrored table.
+ Sally Draper is all grown up
+ the behind the scenes video of Anna Bond from Rifle for the Gap Do What You Love campaign
+ the look of this cozy living room - perfect inspiration for a post-grad apartment (I could totally move in, it even has an A on the shelf & a Keep Calm poster)
+ Emily's under $100 gift guide - especially swooning over the grey Asos watch!
+ the announcement of Matchbook - I adore Katie and Fallon's blogs and am anxious to see the exciting work they are bound to produce!
One of my favorite parts of the fall and winter seasons is acquiring new boots. I love how much variety there is out there and am anxious to add some new ones to my growing collection. In particular, I really want a new pair of "cold weather" boots for the fastly approaching Syracuse winter. Here are some that I have my eye on:
J. Crew, Sperry Top-Sider Tall Shearwater Boots, $178
Ann Taylor Loft, Percy Shearling Trim Leather Riding Boot, $198
J. Crew, Minnetonka Shearling Lined Bootie, $168
L.L. Bean, 10" Shearling-Lined Bean Boots, $149
Madewell, The Archive Leather Boot, $298
Ugg, Adirondack Tall Boot, $250
I've always loved words and quotations since I was young. Every so often I come across the right one at the right time and it totally hits home. As I am trying to find my way through the end of this semester and feeling (quite often) like I am drowning, I found this and it resonated.
And so now it's my new computer background.

After seeing an alluring picture on twitter by the fabulous Caitlin Flemming, I was dying to hear more about Janezic Collection. Caitlin posted with a few more photos on her site Monday, but I am still anxiously awaiting more details when the Janezic website relaunches. The prints and colors are so gorgeous and her pieces look incredibly beautiful but still easy to wear.
