To pink or not to pink . . . thoughts?
Last week while in Alaska, I fell in love with local artist V Rae‘s work. Her series of Alaskan wildlife, Fur Fin & Feathers, is done with vibrant watercolors on paper textured canvas or Yupo. The result is a color that is richer and more translucent than conventional watercolor applications. Her technique is unique to V Rae’s self proclaimed thermal imaging mind. She seriously has me wishing I could borrow her eyes just for a day . . .
I’ve been craving oversized, statement jewels as of late and thus, scouring the internet for unique baubles. Enter Gold Philosophy – a newly launched destination for vibrant and dramatic costume jewelry. With a handful of sparkly earrings and bracelets on my wish list, I’m already looking forward to seeing how their assortment will grow . . .
If you were on Instagram late Monday afternoon, you were probably being blown away by the alluring images of Stella McCartney‘s carnival-themed presentation in New York – yes, even P’Trique made an appearance! Models donned the season’s menswear inspired suits, delicate lace dresses, perforated pleated skirts, and floral brocade coats while dancing to a live brass band, playing the strongman game, and taking turns at a ring toss. Head to toe lovely and charming!
When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag!
