Wood & Faulk

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

I’m obsessed with the Northwesterner series of canvas bags from Wood & Falk. The leather and waxed canvas make for a timeless, practical and versatile all use bag.

I’m a huge fan of Matt’s work outside of bags as well. I first came across his DIY on Design*Sponge and have been perusing his blog ever since. Matt’s projects are brilliant and photographed beautifully by Lisa Warninger. When you have a moment, be sure to check out his shop and blog.

Still feels like fall around here in the Northwest but I’m looking forward to sunnier days soon!

Well Branded: Cavalier Essentials

I have an affinity to men’s accessories. I think it’s the classic materials of leather, metal and glass that create such a glamorous scene. Designer Taylor Pemberton created this line of gentlemen’s accessories and fine goods for a school project.

Naturally, Cavalier Essentials has received quite a bit of attention; just look at those details! The subtle black-on-black notebook and the etched metal scream rustic sophistication. Unfortunately these products aren’t available for purchase just yet but Taylor says if the demand is big enough he’d consider launching his manly kits. Check out this interview with Taylor on The Madbury Club about the project.

Hands down one of the best students projects I’ve ever seen. I’ll be the first in line to purchase some of these beauties for my husband when they do become available but until then, we can admire the beautiful styling and impeccable pieces from his Cavalier brand!

Behold BHLDN

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Blog land is all a buzz with the announcement of Anthropologies new Bridal collection, BHLDN. While I don’t want want to be redundant, I must gush for a brief moment about one particular dress!

I wish that I could get remarried right this second just so I could wear the appropriately named “Pleated Fantasy Gown”! Even the light grey would have fit right in with our color scheme! I’ve already added every image to my Pinterest page right down to the detailed fabric shot! The site even has a video of the model wearing it so that you can view the dress in action. The pleats are even more magical in motion than I had imagined!

If you haven’t already seen the entire collection, you really must take a look for yourself. Earlier in the month, Erin of Apartment 34, went to New York for a sneak peek and you can see her behind-the-scenes photos on her blog. The collection really comes alive by seeing all the lovely Anthropologie details from the event as well. What a dream and I envy all you planning brides!

Oscar Party Inspiration

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

With the Academy Awards coming up and all the DIY freebies available to host your own award party, I thought it’d be fun to gather some Oscar event inspiration.

I’ve been obsessed with this Oreo Cake since I spotted it in the September issue of Martha Stewart Living. Since the Oscars are traditionally a black tie event, I can’t think of a more appropriate occasion to make one of these! Yumm!

I’m also loving gold lately! Funny how as a girl I loathed it, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff! Gold confetti plates would be perfect for an awards party. Speaking of sparkle, sequined shoes and a glittered clutch would make the for lovely accessories to a red gown or a shimmering black dress.

And before the night is over, gold heart shaped cakes would make for a sweet finish to a glamorous evening!
