long lost blog.

long time no post. it seems that grad school is getting in the way of social media :) good things are happening over here at MICA so all is well. my life feels like this image of confetti, all piled up into one big mess but still sparkly and fun at the same time.

here's a still from the scene with Jessica Simpson at Arcade!

arcade boutique.

last night's episode of Entourage held a welcome surprise -Jessica Simpson made a cameo at Arcade Boutique in west hollywood, a women's luxury boutique that I had the pleasure of designing while at Montalba Architects. Her cameo is around minute 12, directly following the Mike Tyson scene, ha.
Congrats to Rochelle & Lindsay for the store's cameo :)

I love this new furniture find. 
Matthew Hilton uses wood and transforms the material elegantly. 
My favorite is the I-Beam side table, why didn't I think of that?

mast brothers.

I've been admiring the design & branding of the Mast Brothers chocolate bars
for awhile now, so I was pleased to see this short documentary
on their work philosophy as brothers and craftsmen.
I cannot wait to taste some of their cocoa the next time I'm in NY. 
Here's more on the "Hipster Chocolatiers".

invites & M&M frenzy.

There's been quite a flurry of Max & Margaux postings this week - 
which is to be expected as their wedding is amazingly adorable,
and so well styled it hurts. I also love their invites from Rifle paper.
 so cute and they tie the event styling together in the design of the invitation.

lacy underthings.

bridal shower wish list. these pretty garments from anthropologie.

save the date time.

It's almost time for me to start thinking seriously about the wedding invitation suite & the save the date. ahhh. I thought I had time to relax, 
but who was I kidding anyway? Here are a few lovelies:

1. Kate Arends save the date - complex & simple in it's monotone letterpress. 
2. A glamorous statement in glittery gold and bold black flourishes (seen here).

when graphic designers wed

I am currently loving this wedding, especially their Font inspired bar menu, 
with names like:
Good Times New Roman, Bodoni Martini, Happy Akzidenz,
Futurita, Baskerville Sour, Trade Gothic
so clever.

take a chance.

kate spade is always a great place to turn for color and clever installations.
I am currently loving this "take a chance" installation in the St. Louis store -
a grid and pops of color, what could be better?

my favorite pastime?

hmm...I may claim to be good at being a multi tasker,
(however, I think that's a little white lie).
I'll tell myself that this bag facilitates getting the job done :)
