baubles and cocktails

Packing for a weekend is never easy - especially for a special occassion. Pairing my favorite baubles and new cocktail dresses together make the process a bit easier. I plan on doning this lavender pleated backless dress with a piece crafted by my favorite local jewelry designer to stand out and a combination of vintage and real mother-of-pearls for a classic look.


bits of inspiration

Lately, I've been inspired to try new things. Like, to purchase canvas and create a personal painting for my living room and find unique ways to decorate an everyday object - like a wine bottle. And although spring seems ages away, I went ahead and invested in a full-pleated dress in a soft lilac hue that can be worn at a romantic wedding this fall, and later in the warmer seasons. As for beauty, a warm red lip and simple eyes seem to do the trick. What have you been inspired by lately? Do share.


fall wishlist: booties

From sturdy leather lace-ups to lush velvet, booties are the top shoes of the season. 
Whether you pair with a skinny denim or structured skirt, a great pair of booties with an extra edge add to any outfit. A few of my favorite looks range from simple wedge style, like this look for less from H&M to a glam pair of glitter booties, like the incredible luxe pair from Miu Miu
