the greenbrier resort


If you've read the newest issue of Matchbook Magazine, then you've already seen (and swooned over) these photos of the Greenbriar Resort. I've been dying to visit the West Virginia locale for years and, after viewing this editorial, am on a mission to make it happen. I mean, it was decorated by Dorothy Draper, for pete's sake! If color makes you happy, as it does me, than the Greenbrier is your mecca :) Have any of you had the pleasure of paying this piece of American design history a visit? I'd love to hear what you have to say!

yelle!

I can’t get enough of this très stylish music video by French pop princess, Yelle. First of all, it’s pink. Second, the song is SO catchy. Just try to get it out of your head after watching (it’s not possible). P.S. – how chic is Ms. Yelle? She’s Audrey Hepburn meets Lady Gaga in the best sort of way, no? :)

want of the day

Can't you imagine Charlotte York lounging on a bed dressed in Pratesi linens, reading the Sunday Styles, watching Downton Abbey... + wearing these this (topbottompretty pajama set? I can! True, they're more Bridget Jones than Brigitte Bardot, but who are you trying to impress anyway? :) They also come in white - I love!

mimi and papa

Over the course of the past three years, my grandmother has scanned every single photo ever taken of my family (from my dad’s high school prom pictures to my little sister’s eighth grade graduation) and organized them into a digital photo album. It’s seriously amazing to be able to browse the lot whenever it strikes my fancy. That’s how I came across these pictures of my grandparents, also known as Mimi and Papa, on their November 1963 honeymoon in Arizona. And yes, they’re just as happy and in love now as they were then :) Cheers to life-long Valentines!
