Alyson Fox + & Other Stories



I have what amounts to a MASSIVE girl crush on artist Alyson Fox that only deepened after meeting her in person and staying in her home this past April. Alyson is one of those people who is beautiful both inside and out, completely unassuming with an extraordinary talent that extends far beyond the art world. Her most recent collaboration is with & Other Stories features playful patterns and delightfully vibrant hues, the pieces meant to be paired together or with old favorites.








Dear Kate: The Starlet (a Giveaway)

Dear Kate-Starlet-1-Design Crush

I love Dear Kate‘s line of underthings and even own a few pairs of my own. Their latest collection is The Starletblack, lacy, lovely and available in two cuts (hipster and thong) and two linings (full and mini). One of my favorite qualities of Dear Kate’s pieces is that second part, the lining. It’s stain- and leak-resistant making these skivvies the perfect pair for summer, you know when sweating (I’m sorry, glowing) is de rigueur. Not to mention that super awesome few days we ladies look forward to each month. (Ugh.) One less thing to worry about when we already have world peace and summer weather on our minds.

Giveaway Rules + Disclosures


Dear Kate


Pretty lacy underthings are fun to talk about. What your pretty lacy underthings can turn into during the most un-fun week of the month or during a pregnancy is another story. Here is where Dear Kate has you covered in every possible way – the undies are incredibly comfortable and lined with three leak-resistant moisture wicking layers. (Also, they’re sexier than about 50% of my current lingerie drawer.) I own the pair on the bottom right and can’t wait to pick up a high-waisted pair to wear under dresses.


Happy Weekend

01/ Make your own decahedron Himmeli mobile.
02/ Real gold or silver shoelaces. BLING.
03/ Can’t stop thinking about this solitaire rock ring.
04/ This is way too pretty to put in the backyard.
05/ From Below, shot through an invisible floor.
06/ Remember these from Lost In Translation? Yup.
07/ Blood oranges with dark chocolate + sea salt. WHOA.

It’s true, wearing pretty underthings generally makes us ladies feel prettier in general. Possibly superficially sad, but true. I mean just look at those sexy little numbers up there I spied on net-a-porter. Now if only my bank account would catch up to my fashion sense…  {via Greedy Girl}


Strumpet & Pink.

Her rich attire creeps rustling to her knees.

The Hottest Tagline Ever award goes to Strumpet & Ink. Their knickers aren’t too shabby either. Definitely something to reserve for that special occasion.
