Items of Desire

(from right to left)

1. Vintage Avon white owl / / 2. Vintage tea strainer / / 3. Vintage kangaroo cookie jar / / 4. Urban white frill scarf / / 5. Knit scarf felt flowers / / 6. Naked girls teapot / / 7. Alphabrass side table

My latest wants and desires from Etsy and other websites. I especially favor the brass side tables made from the base of old lamps, since my parents actually have a pair of lamps just like these (one of their favorite antique treasures). I like how the company (Ladies and Gentlemen) reused and transformed these lamps into something totally unique.

Pull me this way, and that way, and pull me there. I want to dance with the wind in my hair!

Oh Rachel Roy. How you make me bust into a rhyme.


New York Fashion Week: Boy Meets Girl w/ performance by Natasha Bedingfield

Last night was the Boy Meets Girl fashion show, and my very first New York Fashion Week event. Although it was a little chaotic and despite the fact I was in the back standing section, I had a really great time and took AMAZING pictures of the models (if I do say so myself). All these photos were taken by me. I even surprised myself how I was able to take them from where I was standing (and with my newbie skills). I owe it all to my Donna Karan platform wedges + my Nikon. Thank you Boy Meets Girl and Stacy Igel for choosing me as your winner!



I truly love the Fall 2011 collection. The relaxed layers and the gray washed colors would blend perfectly in NYC. Below are my favorite pieces from the runway show, I just LOVE the details:



Zippers, straps, and asymmetrical tops give the wearer an ease for layering. Comfort is key in this collection, which is what I look for in the casual city girl look on the go.


The beautiful and ever talented Natasha Bedingfield with designer Stacy Igel.

Natasha Bedingfield was the reason why I turned down an invitation to attend Tibi AND why I turned down an invitation to Frank Tell. I won invitations to both of them and they both were at the same time as Boy Meets Girl! What are the chances that I would win three fashion week invitations and they would all be at the same time? My luck this week has been ridiculous on my scale (since something like this hardly happens). I was sad to let two great opportunities go, but how could I pass up Natasha Bedingfield??

I bought her latest CD "Strip Me" before heading over to the Metropolitan Pavilion and had my trusty roommate with me. It was all thanks to her that I was able to get Natasha to sign my CD (I kept thinking "I'll be damned if I didn't get her to sign it")!! *SIGH* Such a dream! I wish I could be blonde with her voice.

Anthropologie's new wedding dress brand: BHLDN

I'm a huge admirer of Anthropologie's whimsical style. Their store displays and decor is the type of feeling and look I strive for in my future house. The smell and atmosphere bring me back to a dreamy daze of which I never want to leave.

Now they're coming out with their own line of wedding dresses! I couldn't help but feel the charm emanating through my computer screen. The brand launches this upcoming Monday on Valentine's Day--- how very fitting indeed.

Here are three of my favorites from Glamour Magazine's preview.

I love how the dresses are off-white to give more of that classic vintage feel and not so much of that blazingly-bleached-and-sterilized white look. And the BOW! OH THE BOW!

These are my favorites of their "event dresses" that can dual for other occasions:

Looks like I know what I want my future wedding dress to look like!



The weather in New York isn't looking any better, and I realized it's rather difficult trying to take photos outside when everything looks like a ginormous pile of ICE. Who's not looking forward to the eighth-possibly approaching snow storm?

But in any case, the one thing to surely cure my winter blues aside from the sun shining through the cold, gray sky is a giveaway. The hope I might win (and you might win) is enough to cheer me up! I'm feeling LUCKY. To learn more on the details on how to win the Unearthen Cast Pendant Necklace (worth $250), head over to Disarming Darling .

"Each pendant goes through a special casting process. A shard of crystal is included with the liquid metal while it is poured. Each crystal shard settles into each piece uniquely. The result is a one of a kind object which carries the properties of titanium quartz inside of it."

I became semi-obsessed with Unearthen after purchasing their unique watch from Anthropologie a while back. I hate typical looking watches (only wear normal ones when I desperately need it) and refused to wear them until I came across a handcrafted recycled Unearthen watch. But I'm straying away from the giveaway topic.

Unearthen is awesome, and I think it's so fitting that they're becoming more widely known than when I first purchased my watch a year ago. So hop to it folks!
