beautiful sophie with the prettiest indian print dress and leather headband. i often look to sophie for inspiration.


lately i have been really obsessing over things i'm normally not into... crushed velvet, emerald green, and anything burgundy or remotely close! i just can't help myself lately.

i'm in love with this chiffon, ruffly dress by stolen girlfriends club (urban, can you hear me?)

and this mish mash, jewel-toned, vintage place setting by bleu bird is perfect.

in plain view

one thing i am seriously loving right this second is the silky kimono. i love giving them a tougher look by pairing the patterned drapes with jeans and a rugged boot.

and these little beauties sitting by my desk. the helmut lang belongs to my boss while the other is mine... love,love,love.
