In the Nude

Looks like the "naked dress" SJP made famous years ago could be the trend of the upcoming season. Neutrals are back baby! And we're seeing them all over the Spring 2010 runways.
Here's a few of my favorites:


Alexander Wang

Burberry Prorsum




Emanuel Ungaro

Stella McCartney

Stand By Me

I love dessert tables! Now that I am finally in my own place it seems appropriate to start making my own decorative sweet tables.
The only problem is I have no cake stands, I have been looking for interesting stackable pieces that will show off the desserts with different levels.
Whether they look modern and chic or fashionably vintage I am open to suggestions.
Here are a few that are in the running:

How adorable are these??

These could be interesting for displaying desserts..

Z Gallerie = My New LOVE!

I know I have walked through this Z Gallerie before, but only for fun, never with a credit card in hand!

This week I was in Salt Lake City and accidently found my self perusing through this store.
All I can say is wow! It's like this store was merchandised for me! Very reasonable pricing and awesome furniture, accessories and tabletop. I was especially drawn to the funky vases, check out the site, there is SO much more to discover!

Here are a few of my obsessions:

Pretty Pastels

Celebrate Spring 2010 by pulling out those pastel greens, pinks and blues. Pastels (love em or hate em) are making a come-back. Though I am convinced they make an appearance every spring in some way.

Here are a few inspirational pieces from net-a-porter:
