LA VIE COMME UN CONTE

After falling in love with the Princess and the Pea photo from Hermes’ 2010 ad campaign, I didn’t think it was possible to love an advertisement any more. Then I came across the rest of the photos…
I present to you, the most fantastic ad campaign ever created:

The ads feature model Karlie Kloss, veritable fashion royalty. Did you know she graced the pages of Vogue more than any other model in 2009? And by Vogue I mean pretty much all of them… American, Australian, Chinese, Brazilian, Spanish, German, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, French, Russian and British.
P.S She’s only 17. What were we doing at 17? Definitely not anything as swoon-worthy.
P.P.S Does anyone know what glossy the Princess and the Pea ad is in? I must get my hands on a copy immediately!

ETSY ADDICTS ANNONYMOUS

I really think I need to create an Etsy Addicts Annonymous group if one isn’t in existence already. I’ve spent countless hours on Etsy absorbed in the hunt for hidden treasures and have definitely put my paypal account to good use.

My most recent find was via CrashandCarry’s shop where I snagged this vintage chinoiserie fabric. I honestly have no idea what I’m going to use it for yet but I just knew I couldn’t pass it up.


I bought two pieces of fabric with this beautiful office in mind. Wouldn’t it look great framed? It’s completely slipped my mind where I found these images so if you know where they came from please drop me a line so I can give proper credit.

This photo from Domino is making me think framing it might be the way to go!

And just so we can all ooh and ahh here’s one of my favorite pictures from the past issue of Lonny.

IN MEMORIAM

I was saddened today to learn that J.D Salinger, the author of one of my all time favorite books The Catcher in the Rye, passed away. Below is one of my favorite quotes from the book. Troubled as he may have been, I will always be thankful to Salinger for bringing us the character of Holden Caulfield and all his escapades.

“If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she’s late? Nobody.” -The Catcher in the Rye

STELLA AND DOT FOR A CAUSE

A few days ago I received an email from Alanna telling me about her plan for contributing to the Haitian relief effort. I loved Alanna’s plan and wanted to share it with you’ll so hopefully we can help.
Alanna is a stylist with Stella&Dot and from now until Valentine’s Day she will be donating 20% of the proceeds made through purchases from her site to Save the Children.

I’m loving the new Palm Beach collection, it’s just the right amount of bright, fun, and preppy to spice up an outfit.




I know a lot of us are fans of Stella&Dot’s jewelry so if you were planning on picking up a little treat for yourself head on over to Alanna’s page and start shopping for a great cause! Better yet, be sure to let your boyfriend or hubby know your favorites so he can pick one up for you!
