Post image for austin photo diary

sunshine daydream… that’s what austin felt like. the heat of the sun and the chill of the barton springs water, the taste of tacos and micheladas, the smell of wild flowers and vintage shops, and the sound of live music…

i was so excited to discover some new collages by brandi strickland the other day…i love her work! she uses mixed media, paint, ink, colored pencil and other materials to create these incredible collages that are like little worlds full of stories. these are from her latest series, “the other is looking in on you.”

The show is still hanging at Belljar in sf. It would be awesome if you could give the show details as well. The show will be up for two more weeks.

The color palette of these paintings remind me of my scarf http://2-gitanas.blogspot.com/2011/04/multiway-scarf.html BTW I made this post because of your DIY turban style video ;)

Post image for Sunkissed in the office

Yesterday was such a lovely day. the temperature had dropped a little from last week’s heat wave, and there was a cool breeze in the air making us all dreamy. Light crochet piece wear, great cover ups and fun jeans were perfect for the ideal weather.

While our buyer and lingerie designer wore the perfect cover-ups – a chiffon button up shirt tunic and a one shoulder dress.

It was sure a day dreaming day at the office yesterday!

“sweet as can be, she shows off her inner romance with pretty neutrals and feminine lace styles. dreamy sheer fabrics and off the shoulder shapes embrace her soft, sexy demeanor on the haziest summer days.”

i may be a “lou” girl but i still love our pretty in pink trend on our website right now- the shots are so beautiful and calming! which of these items from the collection is your favorite?

the denim corset bodycon slip:

the mesh & tiers skirt:

Will the nightcap lace bodycon dress in pink ever be available again? It is the perfect dress for me to wear as maid of honor in my sisters wedding in March of 2012.
sil -Jun 20, 2011, 6:55AM
beautiful clothes, but i weigh 125 lbs and some of these models make me feel fat!

Summer is a time when the weekend comes you just want to drift away for some fun and adventure whether it’s to a cosmopolitan city to explore or just to hang out on the beach.

I love to pack light but it takes a lot of experimentation to make the most of the items you’ve packed to create looks that will last the duration of your weekend away.

Here’s a little video to inspire you starring one of our designers here at the office, we used the eyelet seamless romper as a foundation to our outfit building looks.
