Look I'm Loving...

Camilla Belle always rocks it on the red carpet, but this look just guaranteed her a spot on my list of style icons.  Ralph Lauren's gorgeous gown is so intricate and beautiful, and could very easily overwhelm her, but she made it work! The understated hair and makeup were def a good choice, but wow, this dress is just stunning.  Can't stop staring.

Lilly Lamp!

While at Goodwill shopping for a halloween costume, I came across a black wooden lamp in good condition.  I was immediately inspired and decided to make it my next creative project.  After sanding off the black paint (which produced a very messy, black, chalk-like substance all over my dorm room), I painted it white and started to decide what exactly I was going to paint.  I have done Lilly prints in the past, and I decided to keep with that trend. A few different ones came to mind, but wanted to do something unique, so I chose this blue print from the Lilly Kiki dress. 

I feel like it is not as well known as the others, and it was also looking to be the most challenging design, and I am always up for a challenge.  I took a lazy Sunday and turned it into a painting day, which turned out to be incredibly relaxing.  Can I just paint every day, please?! Here is the end result! I just need to add a clear coat...

Newest Obsession


Pinterest is a visual bookmarking site! It has tons of photos of decor, fashion, food, quotes, celebrities, and basically anything you can think of. You scroll through the "pins" and "repin" your favorites to your "boards" which are basically like virtual bulletin boards of your favorite things.  I have a fashion, decor, travel, artsy, and quotes board, and I love filling them with my fav images. I highly recommend joining the site and then following me!

Also - check out the awesome NY Times article that accompanied this photo at: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/09/movies/emma-watsons-personal-journey-to-the-suburbs-from-hogwarts.html Lovely article, they even mention my high school a few times, but based on their description of peters twp, it is apparent that they have never actually been there... Regardless, it is awesome.

It's official

I have received the go-ahead and have applied to study abroad in Lugano, Switzerland the spring of my junior year (2013)!!!! I am so incredibly excited for this opportunity, as I have always wanted to explore Europe! Also, while there, my fashion art and entertainment blog will morph into a travel blog with pictures from my trip! Can't. wait.
