See by Chloe top, Emmanuelle Khanh skirt, Forever 21 rings, Prada Sandals I'm really into mixing prints lately. It seems to work best when you stay in the same color family and vary the print sizes (in this case- large and small florals) This skirt has some lovely draping in... Continue reading

I'm in the process of re-vamping my photos over at my Etsy shop, which is no small task considering I have around 140 items listed. I still can't get the lighting quite right (ARG!), but at least it's an improvement over my old photos. I hope everyone is having a... Continue reading

She transitions seamlessly from the natural to the avant garde. Below are some of my favorite shots. Visit her website ( to see more.... Continue reading

I'm a sucker for a bad-ass pair of shoes. They're the perfect accessory to pair with frilly dresses. A bondage inspired shoe will always keep an outfit from looking too sweet. Below are some of my favorite for spring. Seriously, how amazing are those Lavins? Versace Hidden Platform Ankle Boots... Continue reading

Samantha Treacy dress, vintage vest and jewelry, Gucci bag, Devi Kroell shoes I pretty much live in dresses. This is a great year round one because of the neutral colors and sleeves.

For Spring 2010 I introduced an eco-friendly handbag into my collection I'm pleased to say that it has gotten a great response from boutique buyers and customers.
