I love these images of fashion editor/publisher Caroline Issa's London loft. It feels so light and airy - a beautiful contrast to her assertive print and bright color driven wardrobe. Cheerio Caroline!

You can see more images of Miss Issa and her home here.

Olympic Style

Picture 1 Picture 3 cn5140399

Are you all watching the Summer Olympics? It's all the rage at our house. If you have Olympic fever (like me) and need some good gear, I suggest taking a trip to the Gap. I am digging the vintage original designs and p.s. they are so ridiculously soft.

They're available for purchase online at gap.com. Happy Shopping!

What The Shuck!


It's no secret that I love oysters. Which is why this book is right up my alley. Erin Byers gave up her primo job as the Boston editor of DailyCandy.com to spend a year working on the Island Creek oyster farm.

To say I admire Erin would be an understatement. This chick is living the dream! That's not to say her year at Island Creek was a walk in the park (intense physical labor in harsh Boston winters...ouch.) but if her blog is any indication, the world is her oyster! (har har har...) Can't wait to get my hands on this book. It's the ultimate beach read!

P.S. If you find yourself in Boston, don't miss the Island Creek Oyster Company. A restaurant so good, I'd be willing to brave a Boston winter to live close by.

I loved these illustrations of the top fashion houses on Refinery 29. Wouldn't these look great framed in a ladies' powder room?

P.S. I can't find a direct link for the images...If you have it, please share!

Gatsby on Screen

Are you as excited for "The Great Gatsby" as I am? I'm a huge Baz Luhrmann fan and the trailer looks incredible. Can't wait!

What to Pack: 4th of July


I’m heading down South for the 4th of July and here’s what I’m taking with me:

1. Essie Nail Polish in Clambake – The ultimate summer color. This is going on my toes.

2. Ray-Ban Aviators – A true classic, I’ve had the same pair for ages and they never go out of style.

3. Soludos Espadrilles - my new summer basic. Perfect for bike rides and beach parties.

4. Land’s End Canvas Bag – This bag is the perfect size for an extended weekend trip with plenty of interior pockets. It’s gotten pretty beat up, but it’s canvas so it’s easy to wash.

5. I like my bikinis cheap and easy – for basic black, I stock up at places like Forever 21 and Old Navy.

6. WESC denim shorts – nothing beats good all-american denim. These are sturdy and I love the little cuff.

7. Holga Red Camera – I’m excited to experiment with this toy camera and take some cute pics of my niece and nephews.

What are your plans for the 4th of July?
