STYLE 38 / GAP!

man oh man, am i excited for today! us gals over at rue magazine are now working with Gap on Styld.by—their fun new online catalog! go take a look over here to see all the other awesome bloggers involved! to kick it off, i picked out these punchy pants…


I definitely feel most comfortable in color. And though I usually go for bright dresses, these magenta pants put a fun spin on my personal style.


A sheer button-down and a cropped blazer complement the pants’ tomboy silhouette, while an over-the-top pair of platforms and a head full of flowers keep me right in my girly zone. The best of both worlds, really.


go see how the other rue ladies styled their sassy Gap items right here!

NEW COLUMN / MAKE IT!

alright friends. i have admitted to you that I am not the best crafter. i think it has a lot to do with having a short attention span. anyways, i just hired my intern as my assistant, and one of her fun tasks is to run the new DIY column on the blog! i really hope you all like, and i know she’ll love hearing your feedback and ideas!

this first craft is super simple, but also very awesome! i’ll let her take it from here…

hello, lovefesters! when bri and i first talked about this column, i got very excited and my head began to swim with oh-so many ideas on simple crafts that we could share with you. there is something about using your hands to create something beautiful that is just so…satisfying.

we wanted to kick things off with something uncomplicated, yet high on style. these paint-dipped candleholders require little more than spray paint and masking tape, and this technique can be applied to vases, bowls, trays, wine glasses…you name it! traditionally, dipped items are literally dipped in a bowl of paint, and hung to drip dry. however, the spray paint method is the way to go if you’re looking for something quick to add a touch of color or interest to a simple household item.

what you’ll need:
• something to paint, of course! we chose these that come in a set of three varied heights, but any white or clear item will do.
• spray paint (my personal favorite is ) gold looks great against white, and any bright color of course! we went with bri’s favorite – yellow.
• masking tape or painter’s tape.

what to do:
• decide how far up you want the color to reach and tape off the area where you want the color to stop. we made ours slightly irregular to give even more of that dipped look.
• spray paint your item, pointing downward and well below the tape line in a smooth, sweeping motion. apply thin even coats until fully covered.
• allow the item to dry fully before removing the tape.

finishing touches:
• we styled our candleholders by making them into mini plant pedestals, but the options are really endless depending on which item you choose and what purpose it serves in your home. i picked up a tillandsia plant at a local nursury to just casually plop on top. these would also make a lovely centerpiece with some succulents and fresh blooms!

as bri said, i’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas, and any suggestions of things you’d like to appear in this column in the future. and if you make this project over the weekend, let us know how it turns out!

next week we’ll be making something very festive for valentines day, and i can’t wait to show you! (think glitter, folks.)

THANKFUL


i have always wanted to send out little client gifts that represent my brand. but i always seem to plan them out too late and miss the mark. so this year, my intern alex and I decided to really make it happen. we ordered these little wooden acorns and spray painted & glitterized them. ( is amazing) and sent them out in tiny boxes with a heart wax seal. snail mail makes people feel good. that’s a fact. i’m so happy I could bring a little extra happiness to people’s holiday…


here are a few people’s photos after they received them. they made me smile.

LIVED IN

designing a room is one thing. but making it look lived in. like reeeeeally lived in. comfy cozy. natural and awesome…a whole other ballgame. right? sure did a good job of looking styled, but not annoyingly overdone.

i am headed to the rosebowl flea next weekend. on the hunt for lotza frames. i’m thinking BIG frames with tiny pictures inside. but my head has a lot of wild ideas, i won’t bore you with them.

BACK ON THE TRAIN

you know when you move in and you are in decorating high. making lists of rugs and lamps you want, dreaming of how your space will look…and then you get suuuuper lazy.

so that happened. but i am pulling myself out of it! we are shooting my loft for an upcoming issue of rue magazine (by the way did you see the that launched today?) so I am getting back on the decorating train, and finishing up our space!

sent this really adorable lamp for our entryway (how cool are too!). which sits pretty next to that $20 letter N I picked up at the a few weeks ago. i love a nice modern white lamp and this one is no exception. still looking for awesome art for my bedroom, i might frame one of these.
