gift guide: the glam girl

We all have that friend who seems to sparkle from head to toe.  She loves all shiny things – diamonds, sequins, glitter, and gold.  Her makeup is always on point.  She’s so stylish and put together – you just wish you had access to that closet for a night or two.  Like Beyonce, you’re pretty sure she just woke up like that.

Here are some great gift ideas for that glamorous girlie girl:

design obsession: feathers

I didn’t realize just how much I love feathers… until the other day.  I was on a run on Saturday morning and I saw one resting on the concrete.  Simple and gray, it may have been run over countless times, but it was still as perfect as ever.

I love the spiritual, natural, carefree vibe they give off.

And who can talk about feathers and not mention Another Feather‘s amazing studio space?!

4 iconic 90’s fashion trends that are making a comeback

I have to admit, when I first saw that skinny jeans were back in style, my first reaction was something like “Oh hell no! I’m NEVER caving on this one!!”.   Seven years later ironically, I rock skinny jeans on an almost daily basis.  So many great things were a product of the 90’s, including some of the most iconic fashion trends.  Trends I only imagined that would be left in the 90’s vault.  Clearly, this is not the case though.  Here’s 4 more that are resurfacing:

 

1. Overalls

In 5th-6th grade, “bibs” were my jam!!  I kinda do think the ones with shorts are (somewhat) cute.

2. Jellies

Jelly sandals were pretty much a little girls dream.  They came in all colors of the rainbow, and if you were lucky, they were sparkly too.  Today’s adult jellies are more neutral, and elegantly embellished.

3. Wide Leg Pants

Around my middle school era, (mid-late 90’s) wide leg pants were the bees knees.  Does anyone else out there remember the short-lived JCNO jeans trend?!  Soon the wide leg was replaced with flares, but I’m seeing more and more of them now.

4. Keds

Hey Taylor’s doing it, so it must be legit.  (You can see her whole collection here.) And yes, those pair in the middle are from Kate Spade!   I just wish that they had as many fun patterns and colors in ’92 for me to dive into.

So what’s next?? The scrunchy??!  How many of these 4 would you consider revisiting?  Do you think they are fads, or back again for a while?

color story: blush + gold

Blush and gold.   Together they are glamorous, soft, and romantic.   The ultimate girly combo? Maybe…. but this color scheme can be used in many more places than just your daughter’s bedroom.    kitchen with pink & gold accentsSee! Even in the kitchen!  A little accents go a long way.

color story: coral + gray

Coral is natural, romantic, and playful.  It gives off those happy, feel-good vibes.  Gray is neutral, reserved, and agreeable.  When paired with together, coral shines through, providing a unique look while emitting believability and flexibility.  These 2 colors collectively radiate sophistication, whimsy, and flair.
