I have quite a random assortment of dishes in my kitchen – IKEA dishes from my college years, dishes acquired from my sister/former roommate after she got married, dishes purchased on whim because I’m a sucker for target sales… one day I’ll have real grown-up dishes (isn’t that what wedding registries are for anyway?), but for now I’d rather spend my money on dresses/shoes/weekends in NYC!
So when I came across Jill Rosenwald’s Etsy shop and I was surprised I had the urge to stock up on plates, bowls and caviar trays… caviar trays?! Why would I need one of those… because they’re pretty, that’s why!
Bee Bowl in Perla, various bowls in Exeter Link pattern including Ice Cream Bowls and Vases, this fabulous Appetizer Plate in Opium Fever, Mini Cup in Outfit Cool
These hand-painted pieces are such gems don’t you think? The colors are completely delightful and I’d love to have even just a few pieces as decorative art to display in my apartment. You can read an interview with the artist here and find more of her work on her website!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone! Are you doing anything exciting? Going to Gold Cup? Watching the Derby? (confession: I’m actually terrified of horses!)
On Saturday I’m celebrating my half birthday (because I can!) and I’m hoping there will be funfetti involved :)
I came across the photos from the Trina Turk Summer 2010 lookbook last week when searching for more punchy prints to add to my wardrobe and thought they deserved their own post. The colors and designs have me longing for a poolside cabana and pomegranate margaritas (a la Rosa Mexicano of course)… 48. days. ’til. vacation.
Troubadour Dress, Kaleidoscope Pillow, Ida Dress (also love the Biscayne Long Dress in the same print!), Sea Floral Pillow
Butterfly Hook Rug, Paola Romper, Stefano Shirt, Rudi Pants, Higgins Pendant
Cora Strapless Dress (the shorts in the same print are so cute!), Hinged Cabochon Bracelet, Scala Top, Carena Shorts
Oh and I’m practically begging Z to get these awesome Plaid Jacquard Trousers… Mmmm
And clearly I need all new patio furniture too… covered in Trina Turk for Schumacher of course! The Peacock Print in Pool is my fave :)
Gold Cup is next weekend and I was tasked by friends E & K to find (non-Lilly) dresses that they could wear to the races but also throughout the spring/summer at weekend rooftop brunches on U St. or nights on the Georgetown waterfront. I love an excuse to play a little dress-up and fun, feminine frocks are my fave so I’m clearly up to the challenge! Current forecast is 78 degrees and sunny for Great Meadow next weekend so these outfits should work perfectly…
Milly Sweetheart Strapless Dress (available in more sizes here), Khaki Straw Stripe Sun Hat, Kate Spade Pearl and Bow Necklace, Folley Beach Makenzi Clutch, Jack Rogers Navajo Sandals
Helen Kaminsky Big Brenna Hat, Kate Spade Faceted Stone Necklace, Cole Haan Snake Clutch, Rebels Kiri Thong Sandal, Shoshanna Bustier Eyelet Sundress
Rebecca Taylor Very Versatile Dress (very much needs to be mine!), Scala Orchid Milan Floral Hat, Milly Camilla Teardrops Earrings and Ring, Coach Park Straw Clutch, DV Ontario Sandals
Add a cup full of Firefly Sweet Tea and you’re good to go!
