Colorful, bold, feminine, edgy and a bit ridiculous. Just like Amy Winehouse.
And who better to commemorate her than Jean Paul Gaultier.
If I could choose one show to attend during Paris Fashion Week, it'd be Gaultier's.
His designs are extravagant, playful, a little twisted and truly stunning. But, did I really need to explain? See for yourself, daaaaahlings!

Its a warm day (in the high 70's and low 80's), which led me to believe that it'd be a beautiful day to go sailing. And by sailing I mean a trip to the park to run around with Snoopy, an iced coffee from Starbucks, and getting a compliment on my sweater by the girl ringing up our groceries at
It's a dreamy California day.
Now, all I need is a home made iced tea and some time to bake in the sun in my bathing suit.
(Just kidding, I'm not going to put anyone through that in January.)

I am such a huge fan of etsy.com and the fact that it provides a platform for anyone with even a tiny dream to sell their own products - which makes the relationship between seller and buyer even more special and personal. I can literally sit on this website for hours and have several (to say the least) urges per day to shell out some dough for a darling item.
So, on that note, I want to showcase items that I find, love and create into little treasuries on etsy.com.
This week, it's all about the Chevron craze. I just can't get enough!
I'm pretty sure I need those unique high waisted shorts, that Gold Lucite tray for my coffee table and that iPad case. What are your favorite Chevron items?

I love blouses with bows and with this weekend's chilly weather, I decided to turn my scarf into a pussy bow. Also due to the "cold", (with quotation marks because my friend Jabez in D.C. doesn't think it's cold in California) I wore a thin cardigan under my blazer to keep extra warm. Wouldn't have known, would ya?!
I'm a great magician! No, I'm not really. I've just found solutions to buying blazers and jackets that aren't always lined with a nice heavy material.
