cute suits

i am sorry i have been absent from posting this week! i have had a busy week filling lots of orders and catching up from being out of town. but, i've managed to find enough time to scour the internet for some cute suits. ever since i was little i have had a bathing suit obsession. i started collecting them when i was about 11 and would go off to camp longhorn on the lake every summer. well, my collection has grown old and it's time to bring in some replacements. what do you think? i wish i could have them all...

weekend escape

i hope you all have a lovely weekend! my boyfriend and i are off to port aransas for a wedding...and although it is an extremely small town and there doesn't seem to be much to do, i am particularly excited about staying here. the historic and adorably quaint tarpon inn has only 24 rooms, all of which open to a shady porch with rocking chairs. i can't wait to relax, walk on the beach, play croquet and horseshoes and possibly arrange a therapeutic in-room massage. what are your plans this weekend?

alexander wang lace combo dress

alexander wang tank dress

kova & t kiara dress
the LBD is such a wardrobe staple. i am currently needing all of these, especially the kova & t number. it is the perfect mix of girly and vintage...and i can rarely resist a sweetheart neckline.
(thanks to joanna for discovering this)

the bowery project

(photography by erika kessel)
while i was in new york i posed for a photo shoot for photographer erika kessel. the objective was to create a confusing situation. mission accomplished, no? i love the composition of this shot. can you guess which one i am?

korcula at the ungaro show

i'm back!! i had a very successful jaunt to nyc and i've returned infused with ideas and inspirations for the future of korcula. i also made a very exciting discovery on my trip; korcula made it to the ungaro show at paris fashion week around the neck of rumi neely! it is so thrilling to think that the signature necklace travelled all the way across the atlantic and was photographed next to the likes of celebrity stylist rachael zoe. it is a bit difficult to make out in the photographs, but nonetheless, it's there.
*the necklace is visible in the bottom two photos. click to enlarge for a clearer view.

nyc bound

(photo via sartorialist)

i am nyc bound! i am taking a mental note of this new york look as a little inspiration. i will be gone for 5 days so i will be taking a brief hiatus from posting. in the meantime, i plan to:

~ go hunting for a new summer bikini here

~ do some vintage shopping

~sleep in these cozy sheets and take advantage of the 24 hour room service here

~catch a comedy show or play

~explore the MET

~catch up with my amazing best friend mary

~and hopefully find new inspirations, contacts and networks at this jewelry show

until next time...

a moment in time

(brooke schwab photography)
i am overwhelmed with joy for one of my best friends (of 20 years!!), the lovely rachael, who is engaged to her heart's delight and soon to be wed this may in the magical san miguel de allende.
rachael was kind enough to share her engagement photos with me and i was completely captivated by their artistic and slightly mysterious nature. these pictures also hold a special place in my heart because she is wearing a piece of korcula. i am quite touched that one of my creations was part of such a special moment in time.

currently coveting...

inspiration: menswear for spring

i love love love the look of a deconstructed men's blazer over a cute mini dress for spring. or, over a pair of silk chloe scallop shorts with a flowing cream top a la kate bosworth. it's an easy look to emulate - check out this option by elizabeth and james.
