Wunderbar! Looks great. Here in Minnesnowta, we've got over 2 feet to wade through. Ish. George Raised By Wolves

It reminds me of my hometown. It snows these days, and it must be beautiful, but i cannot see it. I work in south city now, it never snows here.

thanks marci!!

@alison - The name of the nail polish is most likely 'Hi-Tek'. China Glaze released it's "Khrome" collection sometime ago. The 'Robotika' shade has a more coppery tone to it and 'High-Tek' a more neutral tone..that's why I am pretty sure it's 'High-Tek' based on the pics in the post and the pics in the catalog (but it's hard to tell with the lighting). Hope this helps and Happy Shade Picking :-)

A couple of months ago when our team was picking out items and thinking about outfits for our December catalog, some of our home office girls put on the outfits and modeled them – and fortunately our videographer was there to capture the fun on film :) this video is too cute and funny!

we just got in this little velvet romper the other day and it’s the cutest! jemma and i decided to each style an outfit using it – hers is a dressier, going out look that i could totally see her rocking on new years eve – or any night for that matter! my look is a more casual way of wearing it… this was actually a challenge for me, as this isn’t the sort of thing i would normally wear, but once i put on the denim shirt and socks i could definitely imagine wearing this when i’m just hanging around the house. it’s so comfortable and sexy at the same time!

on jemma: velvet romper; doma studded leather jacket; croft felt hat; luna pump.

on julia: velvet romper; levi’s sawtooth denim top; zigzag reversible beanie; santa fe leather cuff; romi sheer rib tall socklink lace up camp boot.

i’m crazy about our collection of old west-inspired accessories.  the colors are so beautiful… i don’t know what it is about turquoise and coral but it always draws me in.  i love the idea of layering a whole bunch of these necklaces and bracelets. which is your favorite?

the sliding rock layering necklace by vanessa mooney:

the four corners bangles by sibilia:

the isis breeze necklace by rejoice the hands:

or the rocky canyon arm cuff by cleobella:

Post image for more stockings!

a couple of readers saw my stocking DIY a couple of weeks ago and sent in photos of stockings that they created based on the tutorial! i had to share cause they’re really cute :)

left: jeannie’s “charm stocking” with feathers and pieces of her own handmade jewelry.

right: a shorter version, from courtney – love them ladies thanks for sending in photos!

Post image for Brighten up your bottoms

I’m the type of person who usually stays in the safe zone when it comes to bottoms, jumping back

and forth with denim, black skirts and skinny trousers.

However, I’m getting a little excited about the evolving printed bottoms trend that is emerging –

Adding a little pretty, pretty to the below the waist is quite appealing. Tone it down by making your top half boy;

Plaid shirts, denim vests and waistcoats. Finish it off by adding a touch of frontier-esque – Throw on a rider

hat and away you go!

ah! loving these little magazine christmas trees and how easy they are to make! i saw them on the blog green eyed monster and thought it was such an awesome idea for using old magazines. i of course have a ton of free people catalogs lying around so i thought… why not? i decided to use our november catalog since its nice and thick and i knew it would make a great tree.

one

start by folding the first page over as pictured above.

two

next fold the same page over again, and then fold up the part hanging over the bottom so that you have a straight edge along the bottom.

three

repeat this step on every page of the magazine – i actually thought it was kinda cool to see how different pages looked folded together like a collage.

four

once all your pages are folded, stand the tree up and spread out the pages until you’re happy with how it looks! and of course, the more the merrier :)

Post image for holiday downloads for you!

good morning! we have a new graphic design assistant and she made these adorable holiday downloads for the blog – the smaller one is iphone wallpaper and the larger one is for your computer desktop. but as our graphic designer suggested (and i agree) it would make such cute wrapping paper, don’t you think? just print some out and use it to wrap small gifts!

click on the images to go to our flickr page and download them. enjoy!

she made a really cute card too, i’ll post that next week :)
