{romantic} lamps

annamaria's- a classic but modern choice that looks great bedside or on an industrial glass-top desk!
catherine's- a vintage inspired choice, perfectly distressed & rustic to contrast a modern piece of art hanging on the wall behind it!

{saddle} up

...a saddle leather satchel! what i most like about this bag is the {unexpected} rugby stripe strap- a playful way to tone down a serious leather crossbody. this bag is perfect for your transition into fall!

happy {hues}

a little {monochromatic} inspiration from the fall shows. have a color-filled weekend!


...shearling trimmed leather jackets! this fall staple is an fresh update on the biker from last year. a traditionally more masculine detail looks chic with jeans & a cotton tank or even over a hunter green lace dress-- a la burberry fall 2010!

simple storage

fringe benefits

boho accessories are everywhere these days but who says {boho} has to be brown?! i personally love these fringe bags and love their colors even more. clutch, crossbody or hobo, take your pick!


{color} punch

...clean & crisp colors! tailored neutrals & dark wash jeans perfectly contrast bold colors. my favorite-- the tiny pop of green on her ring! sometimes the tiniest {color} details pack the biggest punch!
