Striped Tights and Sewing Room Cats

Just a couple of photos I snapped earlier in the week. Our oldest (and largest, I may add) cat Pete loves to come and sit in any nook or cranny he can fit himself into or onto while we are working on projects in the sewing room. Look at some of the lovely things my mom has collected over the years!

The second is a snap of the outfit I wore on Tuesday. The darling pleated jersey skirt is from Juicy Couture and the tights are by Cynthia Rowley!

Snow Day Thoughts

This past week I've been in NH visiting friends. Twice we've been snowed in, and today we (my friend Justyne and I) have camped ourselves in front of the tv with heaps of blankets....I love vacation!

Here are some other things im loving right now:

My kitten pajamas
Electric blankets
The Rachel Zoe Project marathons
Teal sparkly nail polish
Bath Bombs from Lush
Writing this post on my Ipad
Catching up with old friends
Justyne's cat Ted
Eating adventurously this week (Thai, Insian, etc!) could spend hours perusing lovely images...erm ok so I already do
Exciting plans for the future!

Happy snowy snowy Tuesday darlings!

Inspiration: Blythe Dolls

All Images via

For the past 5 months, my poor sewing machine has been sitting all by its lonesome gathering dust. A few weeks ago I was putting together a moodboard for my spring collection and kept coming across pictures online of Blythe dolls. My favorite is the last one...with the green hair and vintage floral print dresses. So lovely!

Today I worked on some pieces I'm doing for a charity event in a few weeks for the Human Society and reworked some vintage pieces for my collection. I also stumbled across several rolls of velvet ribbon I ordered online over the summer and decided to use them to make some headbands!
