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 :)


what cute maps from Mrs. Lilien's style house, tracking her adventures.
mine would say, CA to B'more / NYC...and she's off again...
I can't wait to receive this map,
(which my amazing friends purchased for us as an engagement gift!)

can I please get a polaroid camera?

mark weaver.

i love all of his prints. so cool.
this one holds a special place in my heart, 
wes anderson love.

desert love.

i always post megan's inspiration boards, because well,
they are always so inspiring! this one makes me yearn to
be back in LA and the desert weather...
west coast love forever.


i'm super excited to announce that our engagement party turned out to be a great success! the decorations and planning were executed down to the wire, but hey, as long as it gets done, right? our photographer, stacy newgent did a fabulous job of documenting the day! these are a few shots of me and my friends (who were such a big help in getting everything done!) more images of the decorations and party to come :) for now check out her blog post.


a great herringbone pattern always catches my eye, especially
when used on wood floors. the new jcrew bridal salon
also uses a herringbone pattern in a light wash.
i posted my excitement about it here.

sultry & smoky

This image from the July issue of W mag is divine.
Eva always exudes old Hollywood glamour.
(I think it's the bold lips that get me every time!)

canary yellow

How gorgeous is this dress that the Glee star, Lea Michele wore for the Tony's?
I love the shape of the bodice and the draping at the bottom.
Does this come in bridal ivory? :)
