Graphic Decor in Black & White


I just discovered this amazing Tumblr page called Xote. It’s curated by a Turkish graphic designer, with penchant for black, white and gray. Have a look: Xote also has an awesome ffffound page! Have a lovely Tuesday. Sorry I’m late in posting this week. Crazy busy here in LA! (This is what I was writing […]

It’s warm and sunny today. I can’t wait to get outside and rattle around the city. The only thing on my schedule is to get my hair done! Yay, blonde streaks! What are you doing this weekend? Photo Credits: Anja Louise Verdugo, Rotraud_71, Pink Bow, Reddott, and All the Rage.

Stuck in a creative rut?

Look of the day: Herringbone and Rugby Shirts


I’m going through a phase I guess. I’ve always thought of myself as more of a Carrie, style wise. But it seems lately I’ve turned into Charlotte. How has this happened? Anyway, here’s my pick for the cute look of the day: A Herringbone tweed jacket over a Nike rugby shirt over a Polo shirt. […]

Jewels for Wrist and Purse


My obsession of the day: Tony Duquette for Coach! It’s pricey, for sure. But fabulous. See the whole glittery lot HERE. For more details about the legendary Duquette, check out this thick, glossy tome by Wendy Goodman!

Lobster & Swan

Jeska is one of the best photo stylist around and I LOVE her blog Lobster & Swan. It’s always a day brightener when she posts new photos…

Skinny Love Explained


Have you heard this amazing song? It was written by Justin Vernon for his folk band Bon Iver and then re-recorded by Birdy, who made it into an international hit. There’s been lots of speculation on what it’s about, but recently Vernon gave an interview explaining the meaning and talking about the relationship that prompted […]

Suitcase Planters


I love the idea of repurposing old things as planters — cowboy boots, tin cans, milk crates. But this is the first time I’ve seen vintage suitcases used as containers for succulents! It’s at once clever and slight shocking. What do you think about this idea? What are some of the things you’ve used as […]

Happy Saturday

It’s rainy and cold here today, which means my weekend consists of two things: Reading and watching old movies. (By the way, thank you for all the great book recommendations this week! Trying to resist loading them all onto my Kindle!) What are you doing this weekend? Photo Credits: Lecia, Lauren Schmauren, Books by Henry, […]

Life in Soft Focus


I’m trying to branch out a little in my weekly design posts for Lamps Plus. This week I profiled the lovely Liss Winnel at Daydream Lily. She talks about the inspiration for her blog and her dreamy aesthetic. Let me know what you think! Link HERE! xo (Photos courtesy of Liss Winnel.)

Woolrich, European Style


Woolrich is one of the US’s oldest clothing brands, with its iconic red and black plaid shirts and jackets. Recently, the company started a very chic line, via Italy, to give the traditional pieces more of a European look. It warms my Europhile heart. But like all beautiful things from Europe, it comes with Prada-sized […]

What are you reading?


I have to restrain myself from asking this question every week…I love to hear your answers because you guys are so smart and well read. I can’t wait for the weekend when I can spend half the day reading a good book on the couch… Which books do you recommend? (Photo by obo-bobolina.)

New York City After Dark


This is the reason why I can’t give up Tumblr: It’s such a great place to find beautiful photos and amazing GIFs. (New York City skyline by Bebo, GIF via kr4y.)

What are your top three beauty essentials?


At the moment I can’t live without… Ultra Repair Cream is perfect for cold, dry winter weather. It’s great as a face cream or hand cream. You can even use it as a make-up remover. (From Sephora). My friend Elaine got me addicted to Chantecaille’s Rosewater spray, but at $60 a bottle it got a […]

Love This Look: Marled Silver and Electric Blue

electric blue

I love the simple, beautiful elegance of this outfit by J. Crew. A silvery/cream sweater with an amazing skirt (just frilly enough) with loafers. The skirt comes in other colors: brown, purple and red. I think the red would be gorgeous. Sort of like what the girl is wearing in this photo? What do you […]
