Today I'm paying homage to one of my favorite designers of all time (along with ODLR, Poiret, & more) - the amazing French designer Madeleine Vionnet (1876-1975). Her career peaked in the 1920's - 30's when she became a famed couturier and has long been considered the "Queen of the Bias Cut." Below I've included just a … Continue reading V for Vionnet
Today's post pays homage to one of the most fascinatingly fashionable couples on the red carpet these days- Notoriously funky Mr. Depp & the bombshell Amber Heard. Love 'em or hate 'em- you can't deny that they've got a look. What I'm listening to:
While November may still be Fall, technically, I've decided to go ahead and create a guide covering both of the chilly seasons. Obviously the two have a lot of the same sort of cold- weather pieces.

Thank God. I always loved summer growing up on San Juan Island, but this 80+ degree summer weather in … Continue reading Cheap Chic Monday 8/18
I like to start things with a little humor :)Admittedly, I spend FAR more time on Pinterest than I should. Hours, sometimes. Who doesn't these days, though? I'm not so much into the recipes and 1,000,000 ways to repurpose a wooden palette.

Considering the amount of time I usually waste shopping online, I figured sharing some of my weekly treasure hunting spoils with the blogosphere might be fun- and make it easier to abandon my shopping cart rather than finding myself broke with a bunch of opened packages strewn across my apartment floor.
