A Girl Can Dream...

This gown is part of J. Mendels Pre-Fall 2009 collection. I love the colors and the draping is absolutely stunning. A modern grecian goddess gown I could only dream to wear!

On that note, have a wonderful weekend!

Convenient Style

I absolutely love this top carafe set. Domestic and wild animals screen printed onto the glass with silver ink, it is so lovely! It would also help limit all of my water trips throughout the day, sometimes I think I drink too much water! But then there are these colored glass carafes, which I have written about before and when it comes to colored glass I am usually sold. Either way both are great options for desk or bedside convenience!

Linda & Harriet Recycled

Speaking of brooches, Linda & Harriet has come up with a gorgeous way to reuse their letterpress misprints. These flower pins are each hand cut and sewn together with a vintage button. How brilliant! And how gorgeous are their gift tags? A perfect way to adorn your gifts this holiday season!

Add a Little Flair...

The last issue of Lucky had a great selection of brooches, which are always a great way to add a little style and flair to your outfit. This top Jubilee pin in particular is my favorite, it has so much character and color. I, for one, have always been obsessed with little pops of color here and there. I also love the bottom simple Long Stemmed Iris pin, it is more understated but would still add drama to any outfit.
