just a little peek at what’s to come…
i can’t wait – this book is absolutely gorgeous.
the last is a painting by our fan jennika – she did an amazing job!
all photos from our facebook fans.
“the Let’s Colour Project is a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with colourful paint. a mission to spread colour all over the world.”
i am so in awe of these images! this project is amazing- so far they have transformed spaces in brazil, india, france and the united kingdom, and plans are in the works for many other locations. the above images are of the progress so far in favela santa marta in rio de janeiro.

even the drop cloths look beautiful!
there’s also a lot of cool stuff on their blog, like this:
a bunch of cyclists in berlin splashed 13 gallons of paint on the road in one of the city’s busiest intersections, and the bikes, cars and trucks that drove through created colorful splashes across the street. i love it.
The new bodysuit trend is making me go giddy. I’m a huge fan of the bodysuit. It’s just so darn easy and Incredible if you want to show off your figure! I went through a stage when I was 18 of watching Fame and Desperately Seeking Susan with my friends like, nonstop. We would try and imitate the wardrobes then rock out onto the streets thinking we were the coolest EVER! Embarrassing I know, but everyone I guess has been there.
I love that this 80’s look has made a comeback over the last couple of years and has managed to stick. This time around there’s a fresh new look going on. Sensual lace bodysuits will add a WOW factor to any outfit.
Many girls wear them with shorts to give an easy slim line look.
They also become great layering pieces too. You can wear then under vests like a second skin. They hold you in well so why not! And give a great little detail around your neckline.
I think this summer I will be wearing my floral bandeau under mine with denim cut offs. DONE!
our store in costa mesa, california, is now open! let’s take a look inside…
i love how they used these antique frames as display cases for jewelry! this would be fun to do at home, too!
all you’d need to do is cut some cork board, cover it in some fabric to look prettier, and frame it- then pin your jewelry inside!
pretty vintage pin cushions :) our team went to the rose bowl flea market in california to pick up some of the props for the new store.
doesn’t it look beautiful??
hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul,
and sings the tune – without the words,
and never stops at all

the girls of our san antonio store sent some cute photos showing how to style different items during the day and at night! check it out…
wear the downtown date dress during the day with the v cardi and patterned seed bead stretch waist belt. at night this dress is so perfect it doesn’t need much embellishment- wear it with sandals and a simple necklace like the neon druzy drip necklace.
the printed body con skirt looks sooo cute with the we the free lace and stripe short sleeve top for the daytime! at night, pair it with the seamless tupelo honey top and reese woven leather belt – you’ll turn some heads for sure :)
I moved here in January from the big smoke London. I wanted to start fresh so packed light and got on the big jet plane.
Moving to a new country can be a pretty daunting experience. Unfamiliar with my new surroundings I had to find a place to live, pretty tough yes!
I wanted to find a place that I could play around with and create a little haven for myself. Not knowing Philadelphia I came across the first place that was safe and pleasant and took it.
Now I’m having fun making it my own. I love using my walls to create collages of inspirational thought; I collect random photo frames to trap my most memorable photos hang trinkets from family and friends and feature dried flowers wherever possible.
When I have friends over they engage themselves in the floor length mirror while I burn my multi coloured candles, dripping wax over wine bottles. The Diptyque scent usually fills the air while Nick Drakes plays subtly in the background.
My place is almost there, it’s nearly reached that comfort zone.
Starting from scratch is the most refreshing thing and letting your personality pour into a new home is quite satisfying don’t you think?
