Ladies & Gentlemen Studio

I love one bajillion things from Ladies & Gentlemen Studio by Dylan Davis and Jean Lee–you may remember some of them from previous posts. Top of my list is the dreamy Round Maru Hand Mirror with a copper base and the Brass Aura Lights. I posted the L&G Ovis chair a few times and ‘grammed it while stalking pretty things at Woonwinkel here in Portland. If you’re in PDX–go to Woonwinkel downtown (935 SW Washington) and check it out! This beautiful chair really is somehow even more magnificent in person! You can also get their pretty Aura Chimes HERE at Anthro–online only. Find more Ladies & Gentlemen Studio HERE.

There are scads of pretty dresses from Wren right now. This first dress is so gorgeous–I love that the silk is festooned with embroidered gold sequins. The coral silk dress is a stunner, too. Sweet summer party dresses! Melissa always does a wonderful job. More HERE.









… and, of course, it doesn’t hurt to rewatch Wren’s kissing video

Weekend Barber

I’d really love a pair of shoes from the beautiful Weekend Barber collection for spring from Portugal. My favorites are the strappy Carlotta in both nude and green/ice, the pretty Laura sandal in nude/blue and blue/green/bronze and the Rosário oxford in all three colors. I would also love a golden tan, but my genes always seem crush that dream! More HERE.

MöHeap by Mödernaked

I love this new Mödernaked lookbook for their MöHeap Summer 2014 backpack collection. I’m typically not much of a backpack person, but I think these are really sweet. I love the ditsy florals and splash prints with the natural cotton canvas and tan leather straps. I always have a weakness for natural or white canvas paired with cognac-colored leather! The Mödernaked backpacks in blue stripes and red stripes are both lovely as well. More HERE and they also have a Mödernaked Etsy shop.
