Vintage letterpress drawers, card catalogs, printer drawers and apothecary cabinets are all perfect places to store your tiny treasures. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a letterpress drawer for a long time before I starting looking online at Etsy and Ebay. And it turns out Craigslist came to my rescue with someone giving away seven letterpress drawers for free. Bingo. Persistence is key!
I recently visited Freda Salvador‘s new flagship store in San Francisco and picked out a pair of shoes for myself from their spring collection. You can imagine how difficult it was to narrow down my selections. Would it be a pair of toe ring sandals with a removable crystal strap? A pair of snake-printed booties? Or a pair of slip-on loafers with a detachable saddle? Alas, I decided on the most delicious and comfortable pair of black, patent leather D’Orsay loafers adorned with Swarovski crystals tied on with neon green accents – I honestly haven’t stopped wearing them since. Highly recommend . . .

Situated in a small hilltop town near the Ionian Sea in the Basilicata region of Southern Italy is Palazzo Margherita, is an intimate resort owned by director Francis Ford Coppola. A former 19th century mansion houses nine charming rooms, each decorated with hand-painted fresco ceilings and restored marble floors, private courtyards and lush gardens. And not only does the hotel serve homemade Italian cuisine, it also shows old Italian movies nightly in the salon. Sounds like a dream, right? Andiamo, let’s go!
