iphone case

Reason #1 why I want an iphone.

I am pretty happy with my lovely lg Dare. So far, I have very few complaints. However, why is it that people think that only those with an iphone would enjoy a beautiful wood case.

The case I'm in love with is from Miniot

the uniform project

I am often speechless at the creativity and commitment of others. My sister sent this project my way today and it left me wishing that I had the follow through to do something this spectacular.

Sheena Matheiken has pledged to wear a "uniform" of the same dress for an entire year as a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, reinventing it with only accessories, or handmade or vintage goods. The black dress is adorable on its own but Matheiken enlists the help of designers and individuals to donate their goods or their overlooked accessories to her project, to help her redesign her look each day.

As of today, day 103, she has raised over $8,000 dollars for the Akanksha Foundation.

isn't this room just swoon worthy?

I can't decide what exactly it is that drew me to it. The globe collection, the well-organized built-in bookshelf, or the gorgeous sofa. It's all just perfect.

Featured on design is mine today.

i could buy a whole new wardrobe here

My sister turned me on to my new favorite site, Mod Cloth. I'm in search of a dress to wear for all my upcoming wedding celebrating. I found a few options along with a few more that I just really like. I fell in love with everything and most is pretty affordable although some items are a little on the pricey side (for me). I'm thinking 2 or maybe 6...or maybe some more shopping is in order. Wouldn't 5 be the perfect dress for work?

1. The Black Lodge Dress 2. Spring Benefit Dress 3. Darling by Day Dress 4. Prep School Dress 5. Polo Match Dress, 6. Mulberry Dress

They even have adorable shoes. Can you tell I really love mary janes? I'm in search of a black pair to wear with my bridesmaid dress but really want something a little different. I don't want just any pair of black shoes. My search didn't come up with a whole lot of wedding shoes, but definitely some others I would splurge on!
