Tamarind + Sequins

How decadent are these Tamarind Sequin Pants by Calypso? And they're 95% silk. mmm.

Supermarket + Sarah

My friend Jacob just showed me this ballin website called Supermarket Sarah. In her house near Portobello Road, Sarah makes up interesting designs and compositions of stuff and objects and clothes, then photographs them and puts them on her website.  People can then go and click on them and buy them! They're wonderfully fun and exciting. Below are a couple of my favorite arrangements. 
Aren't there just so many things you want to click on??

(I want that blazer with the embroidered lapels!)

Old + Schooled

So my older sister is legit. She's currently interning at BBH Barn in Singapore, which is kind of awesome. Anyway, she and two other interns were given the project assignment "Do good, famously" and their solution was "Old Schooled." It's all about unearthing the wisdom that our grandparents are drenched in, we just haven't bothered to ask yet. So on the website, Old Schooled, you can submit a picture of your grandparents and their token of wisdom. Best gift ever? Yes. Your grandparents will love it. Mine did. Check out their quotes below. 

DO ITTT. My sister will adore you forever. 
Submit here.
Also check out their fb page here.

Words to live by if you ask me!

Good work Selina and good luck!

Earring + Holder (DIY)

So.. I needed a new earring holder.
 Typically, I would come back late at night, take off my earrings and just throw them on the shelf because I was too lazy to find a spot on my previously overcrowded earring holder. 
So I went to Target, bought two cheese graters (yes. and they're $4 each) and spray painted them gold (duh.)

TA-DA. a multi-faceted, multi-faced earring holder! Who knew cheese graters would one day have a function other than grating cheese?

so simple.


boom BOOM. So much more organized and less cluttered! (jokes) 
Next adventure: a ring holder.

DIY + Success!

Happy Almost Thanksgiving! 
Remember a while back when I posted the gold glitter Miu Miu DIY? Well, I finally got around to attempting it and wanted to share the results. So yes, not perfect, but I've never gotten so many comments/compliments on my shoes (except for maybe my Jeffrey Campbells..) and for the most part the feedback was positive! A couple of my sassy friends would just roll their eyes, but haterz gonna hate. Obviously you have to keep the rest of your outfit toned down or you risk the clash of the titans part II. 
Also, side note, these shoes are just cheap white ones from target, and the rhinestones and glitter are from hobby lobby. So yeah, they're pretty darn accessible.

Wood + Combs

If I had a boyfriend, I would buy him these wooden combs by Offerman Woodshop because he would be a lumberjack and would have a full beard and would need to comb it. 

They have, and I quote, "a stache friendly finish."

Flying +High

This video is absolutely ridiculous and gets my adrenaline pumping just watching it. Can you imagine having the nerves to take on such death-defying feats?? Brings out the existentialist in me. 

I also really dig the soundtrack.

Cape + Confusion

So here is my dilemma. I have some fabulous capes in my closet and now that the temperature has dropped I want to give them a try.  For example, I have this great reversible red/black one that I had made in China at the fabric market, but the reason I have never worn it is that I don't know how. Its not that I don't know what I would wear it with, but the down-to-earth, practical, age old question: How do you wear a cape with a backpack?
 Sadly, my education is getting in the way of my style. Jokes. But actually, with the amount of baggage I carry around to and from the art school, it just isn't practical to forgo the luggage. So I did a little bit of research, and I'm going to wait for day that I don't need much for my classes and give the look a go. I'll take the lead from these fashionistas/os and try and deal with a dainty handbag.

Wish me luck. 
(This is obviously of the utmost importance.)

so adorable.
