Make Your Franklin is a fun and culturally reflective art project that calls on artists and designers to put their own creative stamp on the $100 bill. Of course, I wanted in on some of the action . . . can you find my Benjamin?
Last Friday, our friends at Kanon Vodka and the über talented Jeremy Scott hosted an intimate luncheon at the Sunset Marquis in celebration of Midsummer. It was the sunniest and most gorgeous day in LA for DIY-ing flowers crowns (lead by yours truly) and enjoying a delicious three-course Swedish lunch paired with even more delectable cocktails (hellllo Gazpacho Bloody Mary)! We couldn’t think of a more festive way to celebrate the arrival of our favorite season. Thankfully, Kanon is continuing the celebration through the end of July with their fabulous Midsummer Facebook Contest, where you’ll also find directions on how to make your own summer flower crown. Winning is as easy as liking, picking and sharing! Easy peasy.
Ruffles, fringe, lace, sheers and colors of the rainbow = all of our favorite summertime elements!

A few weeks ago, our friend Katie showed up wearing the cutest lace trimmed shorts. We were impressed to discover that not only did she DIY them, she made them using boxer shorts! We immediately raced to Target for white boxer shorts and the fabric store for a variety of pretty white lace trims. Honestly, this DIY is so simple and perfect for summer!
- men’s or boy’s white boxer shorts
- 2 yards of lace trim
- a pair of scissors
- a sewing machine or needle and thread
