eagerly awaiting this gem

I ordered The Stitches of Creative Embroidery by Jacqueline Enthoven and I'm hoping it magically appears in my mailbox today. I have so many great ideas for it!

band posters

I find endless inspiration from band posters. It's a good source of experimentation for designers and I like seeing the end results. I always gather one's that catch my eye.

bike season!

I feel like bikes have been all the talk lately with me and my co-workers, maybe it's the arrival of beautiful weather that has us all yearning to bring them out of hibernation. Though I already own two bikes, if I were ever in the market for a #3, I found her.

Urban Outfitters has partnered with Republic Bike and allows you to customize their single speed Aristotle bikes to whatever color and size your heart desires.

lauren conrad for kohl's

I admit it, I have a tendency to turn my nose up at Kohl's until I go and remember some of the deals that can be had on some super cute lines. Joining the likes of Vera Wang, Lauren Conrad recently debuted her new line (I'm sure she calls it her more "affordable" line) in stores. There is a Kohl's near work that I sometimes wander on my lunch break to get away from the office. Like any store, I find it very hit or miss but today I was blown away. I think the main reason I am so drawn to her dresses is their length. I've become so accustom to the current trend of dangerously short hemlines that I forget how flattering a dress can be that hits right above the knee. The floral chiffon dress was my favorite. I didn't see the white, sequin sheath in the store but I love the cut.
