. embellish .

It's almost December and that means the holidays are just around the corner. The Christmas baking is about to explode in my kitchen. The Christmas shopping needs to be taken care of and finalized.

Oh ya, and I have some major holiday attire on the brain as well.

Always such a fun, festive time to dress up. This year I am seeing and loving shoulder embellishment more than ever. The perfect amount of sparkle for a gal who doesn't like to go too over board. But any hint of it will do. Edging on blazers. Bibbing on necklines. Just that perfect amount of a-ha!


Ohhh you guys. You guys are some crafty ones. Let me tell you first, that I am uber jealous of any one that can keep a mani going on for more than 3 days. These mitts have about a maximum standing of 2 days before things start getting a little messy. By day 3 the polish is usually off. And secondly, you are all so creative! And I love it.

Check out these beauty nails I've spotted that made my style radar jump off the rails.

. Marant .

Isabel Marant designs shoes that make hearts go pitter patter, feet smile, dreams come true, and wallets want to cry. So many items on my "Gimme" list. Fall/Winter inparticular because, well... no one does a great dickie boot like Ms.Marant.


It's been a fantastic last couple of weeks. Not only have Starbucks Christmas cups returned {I am easily pleased, okay?}, not only did I spot some M.A.D. jewels on Gossip Girl {Another major M.A.D. moment!}, and not only did Mel share a sneak peek of her Spring13 collection {see here}, but my shipment of aztec inspired cardigans arrived just in time for this winter weather that recently blew in. 

Perfectly cozy. Perfectly put together.

Spring 2013

Yep, it's November and I am dreaming about the beach.  Not exactly for vacation purposes but pretty much all due to my latest collection. Samples arrived into our Boston studio this week and I couldn't be more excited! However, I am in Salzburg so its not like I got to see them up close and personal. Yet.  My showroom has been sending me images and I am just dying to get my hot little hands on them. Seeing all my sketches come to life and translated so beautifully is one of the best parts of my year.

I wanted to share with you a collection of my inspirations for this season (Spring). A mix of nature, the beach, glamour and tribal. I know, random, don't ask me how my brain works. Hopefully these images will give you a sense of what's going on in my head. And if they don't, guess you'll have to wait and see the collection ;)
