piles of pearls.

the classic nature of pearls, paired with layers upon layers of anything of the same hue makes a statement without being overwhelming. both myself & my bridesmaids wore piles of pearls in my wedding ensemble so i do have fond thoughts.

the oscars: neutral gowns.



in full awards show swing, the academy awards were certainly no disappointment. i adore seeing which gowns the celebrities + their stylists choose, especially when the vintage collections come out. so many designers. and so, here were my favorite picks of neutral gowns from last night.

gwenyth paltrow was an oscar herself in that gorgeous golden gown, my favorite of the night – i adored the bottom hem line and simple fabrication.  halle berry, always a vision, in champagne + sparkle marchesa.  hilary swank in gucci, i adore the fade and simplicity of the elongated top.

which were your favorite gowns?

the oscars:neutral gowns

lots of black + neutral goodness on the not so neutral carpet at the oscars last evening. so many lovely styles + if lavender was a neutral, mila kunis would definitely be a top runner on my picks with the absolutely sensational elie saab gown. melissa in marc bouwer looking full of spring + structured femininity. the shoes peeking through couldn’t have fit more perfectly. annette always a stunner staying classic yet trendy  in her sparkly black appearing as though she walked straight from the roaring twenties in a dress that is truly timeless + ageless.  anne appeared to have alot of fun in the lovely gold + blush – toned dress + rightfully so. sparkly with an heir to vintage stole the show in my opinion.

switch modern: picks

blown away by an event ashley + i were recently invited to attend over at switch modern. they  have an absolute plethora of items. interestingly enough, items that mix + match ashley + my styles together. a bit of modern + bit of rustic. great eclectic combinations. i have selected a few of my favorite finds, but let me just tell you i could easily choose 50 just off the top of my head.  the ultima thule cocktailthe blow up table the jackie bed (although i would LOVE to see it in tobacco leather).
