Yesterday was emotional. I decided to retire, for the most part, my favorite and most sentimental pair of booties. These boys were picked up in a little town outside of Cinque Terre for, I’d say, $20. Impervious to the fact that I was purchasing them from a store with an aesthetic similar to America’s Rave, I took a chance on them. They quickly became my favorite pair of boots and the wear and literal tears on them are proof.
I’d been looking for a replacement pair for a few months but couldn’t find one that compared. The toes were perfectly round, the heel a perfect length to bring my flare jeans off the ground and the height just right to tuck my skinny jeans. As I hobbled over to the new pair due to the dulling and uneven heels of the former, I knew I had found their match.
So while you enjoy a laugh imagining me sitting in my room putting jewelry on my new pairs of shoes, because, in reality, isn’t everything a place to display your jewelry, I know my Siena friends will smile at these boots, knowing they come with a lot of history and love.
For you. I just don’t think I’ve ever been happier.

Happy Halloween! But don’t be fooled, this isn’t my costume.
Picking materials is one of my favorite parts of being in the interior design field, so I am always drawn to clothing and accessories that have fun or unique aspects that I could see on a fabric or as a detail on a piece of furniture. Where better to wear these Isabel Marant look-a-likes than at homecoming, where my pants aren’t the loudest thing at the party.

I thought I loved this Crate & Barrel ottoman but Me You & A Wiener took the cake with the reeded legs and gilded accents.
Chiara from The Blonde Salad has a life to be envious of… but that blazer… I would literally give all of my favorite possessions to own that blazer.
See the blazer by Atelier Azza in orange.
and blinged out. Worn by the designer herself!

Not only am I obsessed with the stone detail on my friend’s necklace, but the coral, sea foam green and gold are the perfect way to add color to your day… and who says this combination has to end with when the long summer days end.

If you’re a repeat reader (THANKS!), you know I don’t do outfit posts. i think i’ve made a personal appearance once and it is now my dashboard photo. well, lucky ducks, here i am. or at least here my legs are.
topshop made it onto my chicago itinerary. without one in boston and with a 10% student discount (thanks BAC), i justified these crazy pants and that poor girl’s CC Skye bracelet i’ve been wanting.
sort of kicking myself for not getting this watercolor print mullet skirt
these were cool.
if only i were still in college
the great mustacchio
which interior designer out there is going to take the PLUNGE?
101 dalmatian shorts. in the dressing room. no shame game.
It may be the poor mans Slim Aarons, but no matter who the artist is, the scene is the same and the scene is cool. I want a huge print, but maybe I’ll start with the iphone case and ease my way in…
