I started perusing through Lisa Fine Textiles tonight while looking for some work inspiration . . . somehow I just ended up with a colorful wish list.  It’s all hand printed on 100% linen! Check out the prettiness!

oscar style favorites

a few of my favorite oscar looks:

jessica chastain in alexander mcqueen – really digging the antique golds + black lace

michelle williams in louis vuitton – stunning in red + organic looking waves + ruffles

emma stone in giambattista valli – also stunning in red, and she definitely wins the “best presenter award”. Dear Emma, will you please by my new bff?

ellie kemper in armani prive – sparkly rusty glam gorgeousness

gwyneth paltrow  in tom ford – chic cape + white cap sleeved stunner

berenice bejo in elie saab. mostly I was just obsessed with her braid which = insanely elegant and chic

milla jovovich in – stunning in sparkly white + asymmetry

rooney mara in givenchy – this dress was incredibly modern, sophisticated, and had the most gorgeous structure

 

wedding wednesday: photobooth ideas

I just love a good photobooth!

Renting one is awesome and I love love LOVE the photo strips that they produce, but I’m tempted to argue that they’re 10 times better and more personal when the bride or the event designer takes the time to craft something handmade!

Here are a few of my favorite {totally DO-ABLE} ideas!

yellow ombre dresser

 

I’ve had this image saved in my personal computer files for a few years now.

everytime I come across it it makes me happy.

I adore you yellow dresser, your perfect gradation of ombre, and your vibrant red hardware…

… enough to dedicate an entire post to you and your beauty.

I still can’t seem to figure out the source for this pretty…

obviously I was in lust mode at first sight and too excited to type the website…

…I’m thinking it’s from Design*Sponge, but if anyone knows, could you help a lady out?
