I have been browsing the web A LOT today and came across numerous neat, fun and whimsical items and wanted to share some of them with you! Enjoy!
My friend, Whitney, is a Pinterest-aholic. She is always Pinterest this, Pinterest that and for good reason. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I suggest that you do. Pinterest describes their site as an “online pin-board community” where anything you love, find interesting or beautiful, places you want to visit etc. can be Pinned to your boards and shared with everyone who follows your boards. I have seen so many great design ideas, fabulous recipes and such; it’s fun. If you know someone who is already on Pinterest they can send you an invitation or you can request an invitation through the website. Check out some of the Pins.
Via the Contemporist, Centro Abierto de Actividades Ciudadanas in Cordoba, Spain represents an innovative twist to the idea of public spaces. The prefabricated, circular discs provide an artistic rain protection that will house temporary markets two days a week, along with other activities.
Charcoal Felted Clutch by FuzzyLogicFelt.
I am so amazed by what people create with felt. Once upon a time I only thought of felt for poodle skirts!! Silly me. I will make something with felt before the year is over! If it turns out well, maybe I’ll post my creation for all of you to see. : ) In the mean time, I need to make a trip to High Fashion Fabrics.
I’m such a sucker for details. Pintucks, pleats, embroidery, princess sleeves… you name it, I’m on it. But I like my dose of girly with a bit of edge. Which is why I love Saivana. Once only private labeling to such high end European designers such as Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten, Max Mara, Kenzo, and Susanne Rutzou, they are now creating their own line combining timeless embroideries with modern silhouettes. Gorgeous luxe tops in georgette and silk chiffon are floaty, edgy and so now! And I can’t wait to rock them with my denim and cargos. Ooh, and motorcycle jeans, and those new booties I want…. (Hey, let a girl dream a little)
Soooo, be sure to stop by High Fashion Home on Saturday, August 21 from 12-3 to check out the Saivana trunk show. I’ll be the one with her arms full of my must haves! Also be sure not to miss my friends DePetra and their new jewelry pieces. And with 20% off all full priced clothing items that weekend in the boutique at High Fashion, I have more reasons to stock up!
It’s hot here in Houston. In fact… it’s hot everywhere. I was visiting my family in NYC last week and it reached 103 degrees! And, sticky hot summer days make getting dressed a little tricky. Summer styles are breezy, strappy and sheer, which sounds great, except poses a few clothing mishap possibilities. Ladies, you know what I mean. All those shirts you think you can’t “get away with” because they are cut too low in the front, or back, or have straps in places that aren’t functional or cover what you need covered? And we all have that dress that blows up every time a (much needed) breeze comes through? Yeah, I feel you.
