Pixel Bar, designed by Charles Kaisin

How cool is the Charles Kaisin-designed Pixel Bar in Brussels? Eight thousand (yes thousand!) colored cushions make up this awesome space. It floors me! I also think it is great inspiration for a smaller project. DIY upholstered headboard, maybe?

Little White Dresses

In direct opposition to my post on little bright dresses, here's 1 on an alternative look: the little white dress. For a spring party. Under your cap & gown. Or down the aisle in a hurry.

Still loving Spinthread

I'm still just as obsessed with this Etsy shop as I was back in February. I don't think I could ever tire of wearing this gorgeous work of hand-embroidered art around my neck. I love it.

Martha rooms, bright & airy

It's been a while since I visited Martha's site. Even longer since I went to the site's Home & Garden tab. The rooms above are my favorites. Bright, fresh & so very spring. I love them! I also love that the walls are all neutral backdrops for the punchy, colorful furniture & accessories. Great inspiration for renters, (who can't paint) no?

In tandem, in Chanel 2011 Resort

Lots to love about the recent Chanel 2011 Resort Collection, like breezy printed frocks, colorblock separates, denim, etc. My favorite part? Looks for him that match looks for her. Boyfriend, you on board? :)

Best Dressed: The Met Ball 2010

Oscar fashion vs. Met Ball fashion: there is no comparison as far as I'm concerned. Fashion people celebrating fashion at 1 of the most beautiful museums in the whole world. That's what happened last night. And above are my favorite looks from the party.

T to B: Chloë Sevigny in Proenza Schouler, Camilla Belle in Jason Wu, Kate Bosworth in Valentino Haute Couture & January Jones in Yves Saint Laurent.

my mom + coffee filters

= all kinds of awesomeness. I am so busy right now, but I had to share these darling brooches/corsages/hairpieces my mom recently made. From coffee filters. Pretty brilliant (& beautiful), no? Love her. Tons.
