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!
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?
and here are the results from last week’s lookbook poll – only 6 votes separated the top two looks but the winner was look 6! i’m a big fan of that one :)
the third and final part of our new york guide, featuring where to shop and places to visit!
i hope you enjoyed our guide to NYC and stay tuned because we are doing a guide to go along with our january catalog which was shot in…
… PARIS! one of my favorite cities in the world. i’m so excited!
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 :)

right: a shorter version, from courtney – love them ladies thanks for sending in photos!
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.
start by folding the first page over as pictured above.
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.
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.
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 :)
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 :)
here is part 2 of our guide to new york city, featuring where to hang out and where to go to a concert!
