Charlotte Hosten

Was browsing Core77's coverage of the New York International Gift Fair when I stumbled on this photo of Charlotte Hosten necklaces. I immediately went to the Charlotte Hosten site WHERE I fell in love with the necklaces above from the Haute Couture collection. Love, love, LOVE.

Pyrography on Etsy

I'm so crazy about these spoons from Burned Furniture on Etsy that I am sure pyrography has the potential to be a new trend in home goods. I hope it does, at least. Because I am sold.

Styled by Jane Roarty

Current obsession: photos styled by Jane Roarty. Roarty's eye is immaculate, no? And I love how versatile her work is. From happy & bold to moody & dark, Roarty's work is always stunning. And it inspires me. View more here.

Saturday's class/party

Mom & I had our 1st Twice Inspired class on Saturday. Was a blast. I was so nervous. And everything was overwhelming. Like throwing a party AND teaching a class is...hard. And I am shy in front of groups.

But we had such a lovely group of attendees, who seemed to have had a lovely time. So mom & I are happy. And relieved. And ready to plan more classes. Learn more about it all here.

Rowley can make ANYTHING chic

Yep, that would be a pair of pliers, staple gun, screw driver & hammer. All by designer Cynthia Rowley. And just in case your crafty/DIY project goes all to hell, some stylish band-aids. I know, right? Go Rowley, go!

Jones is best dressed (by a mile)

Mad Men's January Jones did it again. Last nice she wore a stunning Versace gown to the Emmys. It was my favorite.

That blue against the red carpet made her look like a superwoman. And that silhouette managed to somehow both be a throwback to the 1950s & incredibly contemporary at the same time. Huge fashion moment for Jones. Just huge.

Saturday: details

If my blogging has been light this week, it's because of this (not to worry, though, I will make up for it during Fashion Week(s) - I always do). Super super excited about this party though. Photos next week!

When a fashion blogger gets married...

Alix of The Cherry Blossom Girl recently wed. And look at her dress! She designed it (natch). Isn't it so lovely? And that bow. And cape. Stop my heart. See more breathtaking images from Alix's big day (as photographed by Marianne Taylor Photography) here.

Emily Henderson wins Design Star

I don't watch the show, but when I saw images of contestant Emily Henderson's before & after (above), my interest was piqued. Henderson, the California-based prop stylish, won the competition last night. And I like her style.

Best. Cake. Ever.

My love of Proenza Schouler is no secret (exhibits A, B & C). Neither is my love of baking. Which is why I nearly died (died!) when I stumbled on this cake from The Kitchy Kitchen. It is simply the most fabulous thing I have seen in a long time. Like whoa. Wow.

Woolly Pocket

So, several weeks ago I was looking through home tours online when I stumbled on a vertical garden. As in a garden on interior walls. I showed my boyfriend & he made me promise that the next place we live in include a wall garden.

I did, but found the idea daunting...until I stumbled on this Martha post, which linked to Woolly Pocket, & the above photos. Wow. Amazing, no?

Peter Pilotto Prints

Love a gorgeous print. Love a gorgeous dress. Which is why I'm totally digging these dresses by Peter Pilotto. Beautiful prints that aren't too girly. Not cute. Chic. Love that!

Doggie & Kitty by Jonathan Adler

Was browsing new by Jonathan Adler when I fell in love with these salt & pepper sets ($48/set). I'm a fan of nearly all things Adler, but I'm especially partial to his ceramics, since that is how he got his start.

And of course, I'm partial to doggies & kitties. I love these! Great gifts, too, me thinks!

Chloé girls

A recent visit from my boyfriend's insanely adorable (& stylish!) niece, Isla, got me thinking about baby fashion. Which is why I was happy to stumble on these ador-able Chloé dresses from Neiman Marcus. So cute, I had to share!
