Textile designer and illustrator Teresa Lim is never without her mini embroidery hoop, thread and needle when she’s traveling. For instead of capturing the amazing landscapes she comes across with just the snap of a camera, Teresa immerses herself into the scene and hand embroiders what she sees. Incredible.
Silk georgette and chiffon gowns with intricate beading, embroidered embellishments, braided fringe and subtle cutouts . . . leave it to Mara Hoffman to dream up a yet another non conventional, yet absolutely stunning collection of wedding dresses. Dresses as beautiful as ones with shimmering bodices, entirely beaded and so beautifully extended past the waist, make me wanna get married all over again.
Who needs cupids and arrows when instead, you all you need is to wiggle your fingertips, painted with flirtatious eyelashes, at your beloved Valentine?! When we spotted this adorably sassy manicure on Hannah Bronfman, the queen of covetable nail art, we instantly had to recreate it. It wasn’t without some trial and error and a few strokes of the brush first. Practice makes perfect and we’ve perfected this one for you. Wink, wink.
The good ol’ Western bandana . . . its storied past and fixture in pop culture makes it one inexpensive and timeless accessory. As long time collectors of bandanas, old and new, we love how these super chic ladies (and men) styled them wrapped around the neck, tied up in the hair or swathed around the wrist. As much as we’ve devoted to the traditional paisley patterned squares, we’ve recently been digging these hand printed and hand sewn versions from Japan as of late.
Tucked away in a nature reserve of mountainous Sant Llorenç del Munt, just outside of Barcelona, this restored farmhouse is just oozing with rustic charm and bohemian allure. The eclectic mix of colorful, mismatched details feels effortless yet so stylishly refined. There isn’t a bit of it I don’t absolutely love. And that outdoor patio? Dreamy!
