Party Central

I've written about Knot & Bow before, but hadn't used any of their party supplies until recently. For Pearl's invitations we used my Seahorse Stationary and sprinkled the Party Confetti Bombs inside the envelopes. There was plenty leftover for the party table and thank you notes too! I'm also loving the beeswax candles and this giant confetti balloon for an outdoor party. Cheers!

I get so many ideas scrolling through Instagram. When I saw branches of cotton at the store last week, it reminded me of Lela Rose's arrangement in her NYC apartment. The best part is that it doesn't require any maintenance :)

New In The Shop!

I've been busy restocking the shop for fall, and have some new things to share!!
 Embroidered Flower and Heart Headbands $10
(only 4 available)
This embroidered vintage batik is amazing, and it's lined with stripes. I use mine inside my purse as a little clutch to hold money, lipstick, gum, etc...
Great for gift giving!!!
And last but not least, Liberty of London tie headbands in a new print! New tie dresses coming soon! xo

Lola Hats

I came across Lola Hats this summer, when I was looking for a wide-brimmed sun hat. Each hat is made by hand in their Brooklyn atelier, with vintage hat forms and Singer sewing machines. I love all the color and attention to detail- a true art form!! 
(Tutorial for embellishing a straw hat, article HERE.)
I found my Lola look-alike on Amazon but it needed some tweaking. A few tips: if the bow is in the back, press it and switch it to the side, or replace it with a thick grosgrain ribbon.

Black & White

I never get tired of black and white prints, especially when they're paired with something simple. It's a sophisticated color combination that looks fresh each season, no matter how you style it. One of my favorite coffee table books is Black & White (and a Bit in Between) because it's filled with interiors that still look current. Here's a few things I have my eye on right now...
My cream and black skirt with a simple black tee and espadrilles.
