A Rosette is a Rosette.

Hello guys! I hope you're well. I just got bit by a sore throat, general lethargy illness. But don't cry for me, Argentina. I'm just resting and catching up on some work. :)

I modeled some pieces from this line, Darling, at Fashion Market last week. They are based in London and I must say, I love A LOT of the pieces. I particularly liked the details on this dress. I love the rosettes at the collar and the pleating of the skirt. Seeing this entire line together really inspires me to create my own line someday. In fact, being at Fashion Market inspired me in to do many things including opening my own store (online AND physical) and choosing all my favorite things to go in it..give me a break with how fun that would be. Someday! I am also officially obsessed with over the knee socks. I got three new pairs this weekend. They are actually thigh high socks but I have long legs so...there's no way. And please know that I'm not taking over the knee socks seriously. Saying I'm obsessed with them sounds completely ridiculous. Obviously, I am not literally obsessed with them. I just like wearing them every other day. :)









(Dress- Darling, Sweater- Vintage, Shoes- Steven, Bag- Vintage)

So, I started following this adorable artist, Ilse Valfre, on twitter awhile ago and was so excited when she wanted to illustrate me. I just love that I am surrounded my ice cream and lipstick and...pink! :) Anyway, I think you'll enjoy her art as I do. And now I really want the dress she drew me in. :)



And here are some photos of some fun we had in Griffith Park the other day. I got a Cheddar Chive Scone and an Arnold Palmer. YOW!



Love you!

  3. so fantastically adorable! i love especially the photo of you with your arms out and the sweater buttoned up. just looks cool :) i totally think you should open your own store. it's a lot of work but tons of fun. for one thing, you see the people who buy your vintage (or designed dresses or whatever you decide on) and that means so much. anyway, hope it happens for you soon :)

  10. I just fell in love with your shoes in a bad kind of way. The kind of love that knocks the wind out of you. How did you find those in pink? They don't sell pink anywhere?! Did you buy white and dye them?
