Miki and Nora on Etsy

4 Aug

This weekend I had the pleasure of going to the Renegade Craft Fair, which features a ton of artists from Etsy. I found a lot of new artists to showcase, the first being  Miki and Nora from Madison, Wisconsin. Miki features beautiful metal necklaces and earrings shaped like honeycomb, windmills, porcupines, and other unusual and wonderful things. I love her use of gunmetal as well as the square chains for the necklaces, and I’m hoping to get the little faceted earrings soon!

I love this silk print dress by DKNY. The print is organic yet graphic, colorful yet muted. It’s perfectly balanced, and looks quite flattering too, especially with the proper accessories.

Summer Dressing: In the Fog

26 Jul

Today does not feel summery at all. In fact, the last couple weeks as a whole have been a bit chilly and very gray. Hence, even though it’s summer, my inspiration for today is for all those cold San Francisco girls out there….grays with a pop of color.

Weekend Dressing: Napa

23 Jul

These last few weeks have had some pretty chilly days, so my husband and I are skipping the city for Napa this weekend for some much needed sunshine. We picked the perfect weekend in that there seems to be early-morning construction all over our neighborhood this weekend.

Tooth Necklaces on ETSY

21 Jul

My favorite piece of jewelry is a gold shark tooth’s necklace I got from Michelle Chang on Etsy last year. I got it because I had always wanted to surf but avoided it because of my fear of sharks (maybe it’s because I grew up near great white infested waters?) and I wanted something to symbolize my desire to overcome this fear. A little cheesy, but it worked and I finally tried (and fell in love with) surfing. So because of my great fondness for this shark’s tooth, I pay a lot of attention to teeth-inspired jewelry and I’ve noticed it’s become quite the trend. Take a look at some cool pieces on Etsy.

Fuchsia has always been one of my favorite colors. It’s a more sophisticated hue of pink, a bit more punk and a little less girly, plus it works in all seasons. And here is my new fuchsia-infused dream summer outfit…

Weekend Dressing

16 Jul

Amidst the rich, jewel-toned and neon ’80s and ’90s colors that abound, nudes & pastels are slowly making a comeback as well. I love the subtlety of pale colors and sheer fabrics, especially in soft pink and grey. There is something both ethereal and sexy about this trend, don’t you think?

Weekend Dressing

9 Jul

The main thing I’ll be doing this weekend is watching the World Cup. I cannot believe how intense the 2010 games have been with the tied matches and horrible ref calls, and though I’ll be happy to go back to sleeping in after Sunday, I’ll be sad that the games are over for another four years.
