Braids Part 2

A couple of days ago I was whining about my lack of understanding of how to make pretty braid looks. Well looky here, instructions found via A Cup of Jo and wonderfully documented at Orchid Grey.

Just say no to terrible shoes

Do I even need to say anything about these? To be honest I don't care what fashion perspective you are coming from the combo of these shoes and those does nothing for me other than repel me from the computer quickly. I am not much for critiquing fashion because I love it (well most of it)...but I do have to call out the real bad....and this is bad. I better not see anyone wearing this type of get up, although i have seen some bloggers elude to this look in the past spring and summer!

Fashion Night In

New York Times just ran this great section on how Fashion Designers dress their own homes. My favorite: Diane Von Frustenberg's wonderful living room with...YES a massive wall bookshelf :)

Orange Lips

New trend or fashion faux pas. Neon in my opinion should be left for safety vests, and traffic cones, and away from peoples faces, and feet. Let the neon die already!

Rings, Gold and Rubies

First of all I love jewellery and rings! I love silver, gold, platinum, and stones..... (not that I can afford them all). Lately I have been coming across one jeweler lately, over and over again. Satomi Kawakita is a New York City designer originally from Japan. I love the rough and raw design that makes these unconventional rings so beautiful and special.

Kitchen Envy

Via here

I love to cook and tinker in the kitchen. I LOVE this kitchen! The white rough finish, almost country but not quite. Not to mention that you could have a dinner party in here, based on its sheer size.
