Dace Spring 2013


The spring collection for Dace has caught my eye with its muted colors and simple cuts.  The line has really perfected a classy, timeless style.  I just picked up a dress from the winter collection on sale and the quality is really nice.  I'm looking forward to wearing it with tights now and with sandals once the weather warms up.

Karen Walker


A pair of Karen Walker sunglasses has been a long standing item on my wishlist.  I never splurge on them since I'm so careless with sunglasses and tend to break or lose them quite frequently.  I have always loved the creative ways the collections are presented, whether that be balloons, mop heads or as this time around, beautiful ladies of an older generation!  One can only hope to age this gracefully and to look this amazing!

Folk Fibers


I've always been fascinated by the art of quilt making.  Not the big machine, mass produced ones, but the hand stitched, one-of-a-kind variety.  I have a few family quilts that have been passed down and they count among my very favorite possessions.  Perhaps that's why I'm so very taken by the quilts created by Folk Fibers.  I have much admiration for the work and talent that went into creating these hand-dyed beauties.

Closet Visit


I'm sure you are all familiar with the site Closet Visit by now, right?  I love getting a peak into stylish ladies' closets and homes.  Right now I'm pretty stuck on Crystal Meer's visit.  Her closet seems to consist of everything that I'm drawn to right now.  Lots of polka dots and chambray, breton stripes and chunky necklaces, summery prints and brass jewelry. I really can't wait for warmer weather.

Samantha Pleet A/W 2013


The new Samantha Pleet collection is taking the internet by storm.  I've seen it popping up here and there and everywhere.  And it's no wondering why.  I know it's a fall/winter collection , but there are so many pieces that could easily be worn in the upcoming spring.  I would love to get my hands on that painterly print for summer.  And then the belted cape would be perfect for fall.

Morgan Carper S/S 2013


Brooklyn based designer Morgan Carper has a nice way with prints.  You can definitely see the connection between her worldly travels and her designs.  In her spring/summer collection I like the blue toned prints the best, especially the tie-back sundress.  Her pieces are usually priced way out of my range but I was lucky to grab a dress from the Of A Kind sample sale this week from her fall/winter collection.  I can't wait to get it!

Erie Basin


I've finally fallen down the rabbit hole that is Downton Abbey.  In the last week (OK, really just four days) I've made my way through the entire first season and halfway through the second.  I'm not really sure why I resisted it this long.  The set design and costumes alone are season enough to watch.  I'm not usually one to linger over what I would consider "fancy" jewelry but I can't help but notice the pieces adorning the Crawley sisters.  That has led me to explore in depth the archive of Erie Basin, purveyor of some mighty fine fancy jewels!  I'm especially partial to the feather brooch, something I've been searching for forever.

Steven Alan S/S 2013


Steven Alan has provided us with yet another lovely spring collection full of pieces that are timeless and special all at the same time.  I can definitely see myself in quite a few of these looks. I'm definitely going to stalk that striped v-neck dress until it goes on sale.  Fingers crossed.  I'm also intrigued by the high-waisted, wide-legged pants situation.  I'm not 100% convinced, but they're growing on me.

Alt J - Breezeblocks

It's an oddity, but I can't stop listening to this album, start to finish!  And yes, triangles are my favorite shape.
