dye love

Scarves have become something I've started collecting over the years and I almost have as many scarves as I do shoes...almost.  These hand dyed silk scarves by NYC based designer Shabd would be the perfect compliment to any white t-shirt.  Plus, they come in two different sizes! Pin It

city on a plate

When it comes to dinnerware sets I've always thought outside of the box. Bright colors, or unique images always tend to catch my eye right away, that's why I got so excited when I saw these city-inspired plates by Notneutral.   They showcase twelve different the cities in all their glory with dramatic 
black backgrounds.  Orange icons represent key buildings, alongside blue rivers and green public spaces. Which city would you pick to have on your plate? Pin It

Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2010

The Fall/Winter 2010 ad Campaign for Miu Miu takes a new twist on autumn colors.  I love how the models bright colored eye shadows contrast against the pale skin and slicked back hair. Not to mention the lavender, navy and marigold color combination in the clothing -perfect for fall. Which piece in these ads is your favorite? Pin It

Chloe makes the cutest wedges ever. I scored these cork and leather ones on ebay and I'm in love!  Who makes your favorite pair of wedges? Pin It

As my friends know, I'm a sucker for anything with Boston Terrier pictures on them.  I saw this little pouch on Shopbop and think its just adorable. The perfect thing to throw a camera or cell phone in. Pin It

under the lifeguard tower

Goofing around at the Washington pier after work the other day, decided to take some pictures under the lifeguard tower.  Of course being a self-proclaimed coffee addict, I have my Starbucks soy latte in hand.  Otis, my Boston Terrier even came along although there was a sign saying "No Do Allow..."

Everyone in LA has been complaining about the gloomy, un-summerlike weather we've been having and today we finally got our heat wave.  I headed over to Century City to meet Nikki for some lunch at Coral Tree Cafe and decided it was necessary to break out the shorts.  After lunch I checked out the sale going on at Bloomies (where Nikki works). Nothing like a little retail therapy to get the weekend started off right. What are your weekend plans?

Couldn't resist a good ol' nautical look!  I absolutely love the Polyvore.  Haven't been on the site in a while, but it a collage lovers dream.  How fun would this outfit be for a night out to dinner in the St. Tropez?

Last night some friends and I went to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to see a screening of an old 1940s movie, Arsenic and Lace.  Here are some goofy pics of the night.  I have to say if you haven't been yet, and live in LA you should's a blast!

Usually I can't stand pretty boy model-types but these models from the Dolce & Gabbana men's show in Milan made my day.  I found these pics on Jak & Jil and just had to share them with all of you to brighten your weekend. Pin It

clog time

I must admit, I was a bit hesitant on the clog trend but then I tried a pair of the suede Steve Madden clogs on (top right) and I loved how they looked on.  Not only were they super comfy, but they gave me inches of height and had a cool retro look to them.  Do you own clogs?
