Anyone that knows me, knows I adore J.Crew.  I have to admit, it's about 75% of my closet, but how can you not love everything they design?  The colors, patterns, I especially admire the unexpected way they mix casual and formal items together.  Jenna Lyons, Creative Director for J.Crew, appeared on Oprah's "Dream Jobs" episode.  Here is a short clip from the interview.

I love these vintage lockets from MinusOne .  
Check out this post from 100 Layer Cake for a great gift idea.

An Education

We watched this movie over the weekend and while it was a good film, the clothes and decor are what struck me.  Absolutely magnificent.  Also, her infatuation with everything French hits very close to home.

9 By Design

This is my new favorite show.
Not only do Bob and Cortney Novogratz have seven kids (yes, you read that right-SEVEN!), but they renovate and design the most amazing homes in NYC.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
They wrote a book as well, Downtown Chic.  I'm going to buy it immediately.

My New Obsession

Last weekend, while I was showing my mom our reception venue, I spotted this in the window of a near by shop.  I knew I HAD to have it.  It's a little hard to tell because of the lighting, but it's a really light pink.  Love love love!

Eddie and Nicole's Save the Dates

I started creating a friend's Save the Dates tonight.  I didn't get very far, but I wanted to post it anyway. Isn't her dog funny?  Her name is Brit and she's a Shitzu, but you can hardly tell where her little nose is!  I think it's super cute.

Wedding Brain

I'm a little fried from a long weekend of family and dress shopping.  Who knew it could be so exhausting?  Oh well, it was definitely worth it to spend a long weekend with my wonderful mom.

Rifle Paper Co. has out done themselves this time.  Absolute perfection.  Can you believe she sewed the design on and hand painted the letters?

Love of Type

Just bought these wonderful typefaces for an invitation I'm working on.

Looking for good typefaces?  I think My Fonts has the best.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday to everyone!  What will you be doing this weekend?  I plan on doing a little decorating, working on some invitations and enjoying the wonderful weather.  
My good friend, Erin, and I kicked off the weekend by going to the dog beach.  I love days like today.

Wedding Inspiration: Decorating with Paper

More paper inspiration...
I love these pretty paper flowers that could hang from the ceiling or from chairs.  You could make these or buy them here.
If you choose to go the diy way, it is pretty easy as well.  I made these for my best friend's wedding shower (isn't she the cutest?!).  Thank you Martha for another great idea!

This is a great way to personalize your space too. 

I think this is my favorite though.  Adding a large graphic to a blank wall can do so much to cheer up your space and help personalize it.  These are from MS Weddings.
I love love love this one.  You have to check out her entire wedding here and her fantastic stationery shop.
