HAPPY HALLOWEEN

31 Oct

Happy Halloween friends! If I had my way I’d invite you all to a fabulously spooky dinner party seated at this candlelit table. And if I had my way it would not cost $38 to buy a pumpkin here in Sydney. But alas, I saved my pennies and went without a pumpkin this year. And we’ll just have to admire and take note of the beautiful bottle candle holders for future use. West Elm is selling a similar version in green here, but I’m inclined to think a diy is in order.

INTERIORS:: DINING ROOM INSPIRATION

28 Oct
Dining, conversing and even working in this dining room, with its chandeliers and antique wooden table would definitely feel glamorous. When I was in high school my favorite place to do homework was in our dining room.. there’s something much more bearable about spreading out your paperwork on a big table under the light of a chandelier 😉 The modern touches like the metal chairs and white vases, keep this room from getting stuffy. I’ve already accepted that these chandeliers would not be appropriate for my little apartment, but one day…

EDITORIAL:: CHORES + GLAMOUR

27 Oct

My friend Marisa once told me she likes to wear pretty sundresses to do chores – it makes grocery shopping all the less mundane. I loved the idea and I want to start putting it into practice (if not dresses then at the very least some lipstick)! And besides, we could all use a bit more glamour in our lives, right? Here’s an editorial to get us into the spirit of things.

RUNWAY:: FIFI LAPIN + BURBERRY

26 Oct
Who wore it best?
A selection of the world’s top models, or the world’s most stylish bunny, Fifi Lapin? I tend to think Fifi rocks the Burberry F/W 2010 like no one’s business. Is it strange to be jealous of a bunny? How about a 2-d illustration of a fictional bunny? Hmm.. thought so

STREET STYLE:: AVIATOR + DARK LIPS

22 Oct

As excited as I am that summer is finally on its way, I’m also bummed that I don’t get to take part in the aviator trend for 2. whole. seasons. The shearling just looks soo inviting, don’t you think?
For now I’ll just have to make do with dark lipstick experimentation. Any suggestions?

INTERIORS:: LIVING ROOM INSPIRATION

21 Oct

Looking to add some color to my living room with some art or a new end table. Right now I’m loving metallic finishes and rich colors on a neutral backdrop. Just bought some silver lamp shades for my blue lamps – baby steps.

I know acquiring home accessories over a long period of time is the tried and true method, but don’t you just wish you could snap your fingers and have this?
