I could not get enough of Vena Cava's blog, which brought me to the artist: Louise Bourgeois. What a wonderful woman. So inspiring.

Vena Cava

 Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai are the darling designers behind Vena Cava. I love everything I have seen from them so far, especially their Fall 2012 Collection pictured above. Keep it coming girls!

ropes of maine

I just discovered The Ropes designed by Shana Aldrich. I love that she followed her passion for design and decided that she needed to be surrounded by her inspiration, the beach in Maine. She found her niche and is rocking at it. These bracelets are the perfect addition to my wrist. Check out her other bracelets and color combinations here.

UNcanned heat

 The season where my pants do not come unfolded for months is here! The temperature is rising and I like it. Most of this outfit is thrifted beside the tank top (Forever 21), the heels (Kimchi Blue), the bracelets that were made by me, and the longer necklace that was made by my boyfriend.


I have been obsessed with these hand-made dolls by Jess Brown, ever since I saw them in the February issue of the Martha Stewart Living Magazine. The colors and textiles she uses are amazing. I also love that the fabrics used are recycled and/or antique. A girl after my own heart. Check out her clothes and other goodies here. Oh how I would love to get my hands on one of her quilts.
I was so inspired by these dolls, that I tried making one similar for my Mom's birthday. I made the doll clothes out of my Grandmother's (Mom's Mom) clothes for sentimental value. The eyes were a little lopsided but it turned out pretty cute.
