Last night, I simply could not sleep for the life of me! Hours past while I stared at my ceiling… until I finally gave into the insomnia. And how did I choose to spend the wee hours of the morning? Making my début on polyvore, of course! This collage was inspired by Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris (one of 2011 year’s most beautiful films, if you ask me). I could totally see a modern Adriana - Marion Cotillard’s character - wearing something like this, no? Ooh, the things you do when you’re unable to sleep at night :) 
wren leopard coat / miu miu crepe dress / faux fur hat (can undoubtedly be picked up at your local vintage store) / karen walker tortoise sunglasses / la perla bra + panty set (any one will do) / leather driving gloves / olympia le tan clutch / creed's love in black / butter london lacquer in tramp stamp (unfortunate name, great color) / falke tights / miu miu's glittery fantasy boot. 

(p.s. - are you on polyvore? drop your username in the comments so I can follow you!)  


sincere thanks

(p.s. - like the stationary? it's sugar paper! they're the best :) 


on this day in history...

kate spade on gifts

I love reading gift guides. Nothing makes me want to shop more! Especially when they’re written by someone like Kate Spade. The above photos are from two different – and very old, I might add – pieces that I re-discovered in my magazine collection last night. The cool thing is that her suggestions are just as fresh now as they were then! Scans one and two are from a 2004 InStyle feature. The third scan is from an unknown source (but I love it all the same). Oh, how I wish Kate Spade had a GOOP-esque newsletter so we could see what she's giving this year. I have a hunch that she would have some very good ideas :)
