silhouette stationary

I've been lusting after silhouette stationary ever since I came across Sesame Letterpress' rendition a few years back. Beautiful as they are, I just can't justify spending $150+ for paper that I don't see becoming the "little black dress" of my stationary wardrobe! Does that make sense? Call me crazy, but I view silhouette paper as the equivalent of that fun DVF wrap dress you'd wear to dinner with friends.

That being said, this Fiona Designs set seems to be the answer to my prayers. At $20 for ten personalized cards and envelopes, the price is definitely right. Plus, the company even offers the option to choose your own coloring... I think I'd want a coral-y pink silhouette with black letters. Of course, I'd change my mind a million times before actually placing the order. So, who makes your favorite "wrap dress" stationary? I'd be interested to hear! x

phoenix + bankrupt!

Today, Phoenix released Bankrupt!, their newest album since 2009’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. A good friend in L.A. sent me a preview yesterday, and I think I’ve already listened to it three times! My favorite song – at least today – is “Chloroform”. So good. I’m a big fan of album’s cover art, as well... I’ll probably purchase the vinyl in the next few days so I can frame it. Anywho, if you’re looking to have a Tuesday afternoon jam sesh at the office I strongly suggest downloading Bankrupt! ASAP. You can thank me later :)

my hermès dream dress

When I first saw images of Hermès' Trompe L'oeil dress (circa 1952), I literally think my heart skipped a beat. It’s everything I could ever want in a piece of clothing… and then some! Not to mention, the way it’s styled on the model in the first and last photo? Totally my cup of tea. I’m currently plotting with a fellow vintage lover in New York to create a DIY version of some sort. I’m not super crafty, but come hell or high water I WILL have this hanging in my closet!
