my day would be complete if i could just have at least one of these pieces from jennifer behr. i'd prefer the encrusted crystals on silk chiffon and i'd channel richie's ethereal look with winged eyeliner and soft waves. of course, i'd happily settle for a patent leather neon orchid or an overlapping crystal twist.
thanks courtney.

take me away...

today all i can seem to think about is taking a vacation. while i am yearning for white sandy beaches, i am still amped up for a trip to san miguel next month. one of my best friend's is tying the knot and my family and closest friends are all headed out for the festivities. my parents rented out the lavish casa cece and i literally can hardly wait to get there. word has it we will be greeted promptly with margaritas and a homemade mexican meal prepared by the in-house chef. i'll take it!
p.s.-check out the site of the wedding here.

linda evangelista

coming across these pictures the other day made me remember how much i used to covet linda evangelista's fiery red hair when i was younger. i started dying my hair when i was about 14, and it has been everything from black to platinum blonde over the years. but, i never mustered up the courage to go full on RED. now, with a little encouragement from my boyfriend, i am thinking of taking the plunge. i pulled a few of my all-time favorite redheaded looks and we are going to check out this wig salon over the weekend to get an idea of what i might look like.

what do you think, should i go for it??

ribbon 'do's

photos: tfs
remember when i said i wanted to dress my korcula models in ribbon twisted 'do's a while back? well, it looks like matthew williamson beat me to it. check out a few of the ad's for his limited edition collection for H&M. how fabulous are the grosgrain ribbons around the model's feet?

i cannot believe i am going to miss out on this collaboration. how can houston not have an H&M?!?!

p.s.- i once sipped margaritas in a hammock on the beach in these photos. the secret spot? tulum, mexico. and it is every bit as beautiful in person as it is in the pics.

throw back

these photos make me insanely nostalgic. they remind me of dancing around in my parent's den to the george michael freedom video on MTV in the 90's. the video that first introduced me to the supermodel. exploding guitars and linda evangelista hiding under a sweater with multiple earrings lining her right ear.

so freaking cool.

"freedom. you've got to give what you take."

shine on like the crazy diamond that you are

hello. i apologize for the lack of posts over the last two weeks. every now and then, like most people, i feel a little uninspired. and because i refuse to offer up ideas and thoughts without conviction, i chose to take a breather and wait for my light to ignite yet again, brimming with possibility. and then i remember that all it takes sometimes is just one inspired thought to get you going. and maybe a good dose of motivation from one of my favorite quotes of all time, sent to me from one of my favorite people of all time - you know who you are. and i am reminded of just how powerful and capable we all really are...

"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond all measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not help the world any. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. And as we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

-Nelson Mandella or Marianne Williamson, or apparently maybe even Betty Ford?
