mary mcdonald's dollhouse

One of my absolute favorite interior designers, Mary McDonald, recently partnered with Martin Lawrence Bullard to design a couture dollhouse (he decorated the top floor, she le rez-de-chaussée). Not that I even need to say this, but this wasn’t just any dollhouse. As the final product was to be auctioned off for a cause (UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital, to be exact), Mary went all out. Among other things, the house comes with de Gournay-esque wallpaper, custom upholstery and plastic pugs. Basically, I want to move in! All I have to say is that when I have kids, I’m going to have wayyy more fun with their dollhouses than they do :)

chanel + la montre première

The styling in this Chanel film is so spot-on! It also doesn't hurt that I'm a watch person (you can see what I wear everyday here :). Before you press "play", you may want to whip out a pen and paper to take notes - this little promo definitely got my wheels spinning. My favorite prop were those adorable helmets... I think Colette sells them and I think I should have one. Anywho, enjoy! x

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 :)
