Life in Technicolor

I can't believe this is tomorrow. This show is like my baby, and me along with a few other people at Feedback Clothing have been working on it for months! If you live in the Nashville area you should come out to see a great show filled with awesome local designers like Say Ooh (Colleen Wandel), Valentine Valentine
(Amanda Valentine), and other Nashville favorites like TOM's shoes! AND it's only $5.

Ok, done plugging the show... :)

Well, almost! I will be showing my new Spring pieces for Love Simone Clothing as well

To Grandmother's House We Go!

Some of my most treasured memories growing up are of a place tucked in the woods of southern New Hampshire called Pickity Place. It is a 200 year old house that was used as inspiration for the illustrations of the 1948 version of "Little Red Riding Hood". Today it is not only a quaint museum to the story, but also an amazing place to eat lunch. They have their own herb and vegetable gardens, and beautiful flowers in the summer. They have a set menu for each month, and this month's was absolutely delicious.

I must say, though, that when you're a small child, yummy vegetable laden entrees don't seem so appealing. When my sister and I were younger, we would get Pickity Place's version of a happy meal...Little Red Riding Hood's basket with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, an apple, and a postcard to send to Grandma. We always showed up in full Little Red attire, with our handmade red cloaks. Our journey to Pickity was always well worth it, even when venturing down the winding roads through the woods (our Mother would scare us with tales of the wolf peering out from the trees watching us).

BUT, I digress a bit. I took pictures of our absolutely delicious 5 course meal of garlic and tomato dip, roasted yellow pepper soup with rice and thyme, a three-bean salad, irish farmhouse bread with chive butter, bacon, ricotta and spinach pastry with broccoli polonaise and a maple fudge bar with orange creme anglaise! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it all...

If you're ever in NH, you must visit (especially in the summer, when you can visit the gardens!)

Boston in Rodarte

On Wednesday night Hannah and I went to Boston to visit some friends. Shane had just gotten a new back drop ("Anthropologie Grey" as he dubbed it) so we decided to have a mini photo shoot. I had just snatched up some of the leftover clearance Rodarte items from Target and was excited to wear the pink tulle blouse! Shane used to come over and take fun pictures all the time in high school, but I always feel awkward in front of the camera. You can probably tell.... :)

You can also see my new haircut fully here! I'm still getting used to it, and I'm working on the best way to wear it curly as well. What do you all think?

Smitten with Sonia

So I am home in New Hampshire on Spring Break for the week. Possibly the last time I will be up in New England for a very long time. My family is moving to Tennessee (very exciting!), but it is surely sad to say goodbye to the house and area I grew up in.

This week I am relaxing, sleeping in late, doing some last minute sewing, reading, and doing some lovely tax free shopping!

I've been partially keeping up with the Fall 2010 shows, but it always seems like such overkill even posting about all the shows I like, because...well, every other blogger out there is doing the same thing. However, I was completely taken with Sonia Rykiel's nude and beige knits. Exactly what I want to wear now...perhaps because I have changed my hair and now feel like changing up my wardrobe (Don't you think brown hair and nude tones look lovely)? And well, I don't feel like waiting for fall to wear any of these things! Now, I say!

OH and don't let me forget the GIANT Pom pom! Someone tell me where I can even find one of these to attach to a headband/clip/some sort of contraption that will make one sit atop my head in the same manner! I'm sensing a rather ambitious DIY..hmm?

Until next week, I am off to watch TV (I don't have cable at my house in Nashville, so this is a real treat!). Tonight, Kell on Earth and Gossip Girl!
