I love this dreamy editorial from Harper’s Bazaar UK that I saw on Coco+Kelley! I especially love all the billowy layers in the first shot – that is an outfit for me!

Hooray! It’s Thursday, and it’s time for our Thursday Poll!
Last week we took a look at some of the many ways to wear our Riding Hood Convertible Tee, and decisively chose the racerback tank styling as our favorite! It got 253 votes!
This week I want to ask you about some of our summer dresses and see which ones you guys really like!
Check out the Night Out Dress, shown here in Butter.

Now have a look at our One Shoulder Banded Bottom Dress in Purple.

Next is our Best Night Out Dress in Hot Coral.

Well, now you’ve seen the dresses, which one do you like the most?

Hey Chicagoland!
Our newest store is opening tomorrow in Highland Park, at 642 Central Avenue! We are so excited to open this new location, and we hope you’ll come visit us soon!

These pieces by Ulrik Martin Larsen are so carefully made and interesting! They look really intricate and delicate and yet the chains give a lot of them a very tough feel! They’re so inspiring – people have been doing such great things with chains lately! I also really, really like the one in the second picture down because of those little wood fingers along the edges! What do you guys think?

cross-stitch cars

When I first saw these pictures I immediately liked the beautiful cross-stitched design on the cars – but I didn’t realize until I looked a bit harder that the designs are literally cross-stitched into holes in the hood of the car! How amazing! They were created by Lithuanian artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene for Berlin art show Strich Und Faden. Cool, right?

calling cards

The designs on these (very) old calling cards are gorgeous! I love the thought of a time when people would come see you, and leave cards to say they came by if you weren’t there, or to invite you to parties, or better yet, make romantic advances! Maybe sometime, somehow, calling cards will come back…
Anyhow, these beauties came from Dull Tool Dim Bulb – check it out for a few more.

Every Monday through Friday for 20 weeks, Ann Wood, of Ann Wood Handmade, made one horse, until she had 100! Each horse is made from cardboard and hand-painted, with cute button joints! Ann currently has the horses as decoration above her bed – don’t you love them? I want to make my own, and conveniently, Ann put together a DIY tutorial for Design*Sponge! Check it out here – even if you don’t want to make a horse it’s pretty cool to see how she did it!

I'm actually not that into horses, but I love this! The second picture is my favorite because of all the varying colors. It would be so fun to decorate a portion of a wall with colored horses. Definitely not your everyday decorating technique.

Why don’t people do more things like this? I love it! Artist Posterchild turned this abandoned newspaper box into a planter, with the help of a couple pieces of wood! There are so many empty newspaper boxes around Philly – I think we need some flowers for them! Click here for better pictures.

Aren’t these paintings by Shelton Walsmith lovely? I really love the colors and the abstract feel. Be sure to check out his website – all of his work is really good! I would have put every painting he has in this post if I could have!

wrapped yarn

il_430xN.34367835.jpg
There’s something really appealing about these yarn wrapped beads – I don’t know if it’s just that they are so whimsical and tiny, or the colors, or what! They’re made by Maria Cavallero of Argentina, who has many more of these little charmers on her Etsy – take a look if you feel so inclined!
I saw these on Love Forever.

I’m really into these intricate pen and ink drawings by Yellena James – they’re so detailed and organic! Like landscapes within themselves… See more here.
