I decided to maintain my darker red hair, it eliminates the need for a tan, as it provides a nice contrast to my pale skin. Only downfall is that I need to fill in my eyebrows everyday now. I'm wearing my new Stella McCartney cork sandals from Intermix. Buy them here.
I love the neutral tones and pop of hot pink lining the cork. They are pretty comfortable too considering they are like 6 inches. The foot bed is like a birkenstock. Also Michelle Williams was caught wearing them in Cannes this week :)

Today's list: da-nang dress, AA leggings, Chanel shades, balenciaga bag, and Stella McCartney sandals.

home is where the heart is

Sorry for the lack of posts lately; I have been focusing more on my home decor so I thought I would share some photos. I recently bought a new dining table and decided that I wanted a group of mismatched eclectic chairs to go with it. I got my first chair from freecycle, one with a beautiful sturdy frame but needed a lot of work--perfect! I painted it black and reupholstered it with a piece of a sheet from Urban Outfitters. I love the damask print of the sheet and have plenty left to make a runner, more seat cushions, and a couple throw pillows :) I only wish I had taken a before pic to show you how easy it is to take a chair with paint splattering, a torn seat, and obvious time in a garage and make it pretty again. I also decided to take the plunge and put black paint on my walls *gasp*, but it was totally worth it as it pefectly frames my black fireplace now. I was also in the mood to paint. It's been a while since I've felt inspired enough. These are obviously informed by one of my favorite female artists: georia o'keefe. Email me if you are interested in buying one or the whole group. Stay tuned for more paintings :)

patio obsesssion

The obsession with patio dresses continues! Also my efforts to be more environmentally friendly-my newest matt & nat bag. Its the red santogold shoulder bag that uses 21 recycled bottles. My first was a magenta japanese paper hobo from when matt & nat was first sold at cusp and other larger stores. The design and quality has definitely gone up since then.

Today's list: banana republic maxi dress and cardigan, matt & nat bag, old navy flip flops, chloe sunglasses
