The Perfect Black & White Spotted Flats

My most recent shoe purchase happens to be this pairof calf-hair dalmatian print flats, and I had to share. I spotted them in a store window and went straight in to pick them up.   They feel like a slightly more versatile version of leopard, and  I love the slightly pointed toe shape.   Since I've already been wearing them like crazy, I predict they'll be a staple in my closet by the time fall starts.  Plus,  I saw that Old Navy is offering a strikingly similar pair for just $24, So I figured I should share a roundup of similar pairs for those of you who might want to pick up your own version.

How darling is this vest & romper combo that Vanessa Jackman captured at Paris men's fashion week?  I never would have thought I'd be on the hunt for a white moto-vest... but she has me considering...

How to Make Simple Cupcake Baking Cups at Home

I was recently baking cupcakes late one evening and realized I had run out of baking cups.  With the batter already made and the oven pre-heated, it didn't make sense to run out to the store; so I improvised with what I had, parchment paper. I was pretty happy with the way my home-made wrappers turned out so I figured I'd share for the next time you're in a bind. (Sorry for the horrible iPhone pictures)

I brought these into work the next day, and I think the hand made wrappers made them seem a bit fancier than your typical store bought cupcake baking cups.


Would You Ever Try a Yellow Sofa?

These fancy folks make yellow sofas seem surprisingly approachable...If I was starting a new room from scratch, I'd definitely consider it...

I think it all started with Jenna Lyons' NY living room...

This one even works in a sectional!  If you're looking to recover an old sofa, maybe you should consider an unconventional color...


Give me a Branch

It's not a new idea, but  I've recently been obsesssed with finding the perfect nature-enspired jewelry....

How stunning is this rose gold twig inspired bangle? ($138 on Etsy)

Or, you could go with this one, that's actually a branch! ($95 brass dipped branch at Etsy)

Or, maybe you're looking for the softer side of twig jewelry, and want some leaves on that bracelet :)

This one almost feels a bit Roman...

(Botanical braclet, $40 on Etsy)

I'd also be more than willing to stack a set of these twiggy rings onto my finger.  (Twig band $510 at Etsy)
