Don’t get me wrong: I love girly. I adore lace, the color pink, jewels, frosting and peonies. But I think that all those feminine notions are way more interesting when juxtaposed with something a little more organic, don’t you? When we got the chance to collaborate on a romantic-themed bridal shower with the team at… read more

DIY :: Ombré Crane Garland

I have to admit that I never gave origami enough credit, but these days I (Chanel) can’t get enough of the Japanese paper folding art. The geometric detail that goes into every fold, the amazing patterns and colors of the paper, the satisfaction that comes with perfecting a certain shape… folks, it’s addicting. And for… read more

DIY :: Fringe Tassel Garland

It’s been almost two years since the team at CONFETTISYSTEM first wowed us with their dazzling creations, and since then their work has continued to be nothing short of magnificent.

A Camping We Will Go

 My 16 year old brother is away for a month at summer camp in New York, and last week the poor kid dislocated his shoulder. When brainstorming something to send his way to cheer him up I thought about how nothing brightens my day like some good ol’ bunting (whether or not my brother feels… read more

A Feather or Two

Summer always brings out the bohemian in me. The blazing heat keeps my outfits long & flowy as I totally abandon the notion of winter’s well-thought-out combinations. My earthy obsession this season… feathers! And it seems I’m not the only one – I’ve loved seeing feathers take center-stage this season in the most unexpected places. Follow… read more

A Feeling I Felt

Felt & I didn’t get off to a great start. I have vivid memories of school days, using Elmer’s to glue scratchy felt scraps in icky colors to make… not so fabulous artwork. But thanks to some of the best crafters out there, I stand before you a changed woman, felt’s #1 fan. Make a… read more
