Sunny Day.

Today's Daily Dizzle is the sunny.

I picked up this pretty yellow fabric a while ago, and one very late night while watching, undoubtedly, HBO on Demand, I wanted to create something really simplistic yet super cheerful. A couple of hours later after experimenting with the fabric and different colors/styles of headbands, I finally put together this pretty combination. It has definitely been a personal and customer favorite.

Check it out HERE.

Summery items I'd love to wear the sunny with:

Long Ribbed Tank in White - Forever 21
Only $3.50 and I ruin tanks like it's my J-O-B.

The Rachel BellBottom - 7 For All Mankind at

7's + Bell Bottoms + Rachel Zoe = LOVE

Paprika Cansee Shoe in Tan - ZooShoo

I need some HIGH heels if I'm going to wear those 7's...and I love camel and manmade leather.

Red and Orange Long Beaded Necklace - Feather and Bird on Etsy
A girl can never have too many lonnnng beaded necklaces.

OPI - The Thrill of Brazil

For the toes and the fingertips (even though I normally have a real problem with matching them. I'm so weird.)

Make Up For Ever Super Lip Gloss in True Red - Sephora

Because I can't wear a heavy lipstick in August. Who am I kidding, I love lipgloss.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, lovelies!

Daily Dizzle - 7.30.2010

Happy Friday!

I had to do a quick on-camera interview today for something at my FT job. Right before going down for the interview, my friend Steph handed me a mini cupcake (de-freaking-licious!) After the interview, I looked at my sleeve and I had frosting all over my sleeves. Sweet, that's just how I roll.
Let's get into the Daily Dizzle...

the flora - Pink Chiffon Petals on Grassy Green

This is one of my favorite pieces ever. I am obsessed with pink & chiffon (as you can probably tell.) This was such a happy marriage for me when combined with the green rope. It really reminds of a real flower in the garden (if only my grass were that green.)
Check it out HERE!
Have a great weekend, friends!

Dizzle of the Day - 7.29.2010

Hi friends! In order to keep myself posting more regularly, I'm going to post a piece I've designed each day and tell a story behind the design.

I'm going to kick it off with one of my newer pieces -
the blanca.

I designed this headband with the intent of it sitting atop a bride's head on her special day. I wanted to create something with a simple I did, and I decided I wasn't done. After wrapping the headband in satin and then placing two rows of pretty pearls, I added the coveted ruffle. I then added a puff of chiffon and some pretty net tulle...and ta da! I was happy with the result. Nothing over the top, but definitely beautiful!

Check it out in my shop HERE.

On a sad note...I'd like to say farewell to a very special man in my life, Dexter Derrow.

Dexter was the thirteen year-old Cairn Terrier that my parents surprised my brother and I with when I was a Freshman in high school. Many of our friends were scared of Dex, he had a knack for attacking people, but he LOVED the family and would never hurt us (ok, he bit almost all of us once, but he was still a sweet guy.)

This past Friday, my parents and I had to take Dex to the vet and he had to be put to sleep. It was extremely sad, but he was sick and I'm sure he is in a much better place now.

We will always love and miss you Dexter D!
