With Grace

This photograph of Grace Kelly always leaves me breathless. It embodies beauty, sorrow, and grace. This photo was captured during a game of charades, and I think it is so lovely that during a lighthearted game, Grace still held such elegance and poise.

Edge of Love

Though the film was a bit of a dud, the fashion in Edge of Love was stunning. The film took place during World War II, when women dressed with utter class and sophistication. Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller look radiant in flowing, fall colored dresses and sweaters, chic hats, darling sunglasses, and adorable rainboots with layered stockings. Oh how I want to prance around in green grass with such lovely outfits!

Women & Dogs

Just found a wonderful little treasure to add to my coffee table collection. Women & Dogs is a chic and lovely collection of photos of women and their dogs throughout history, proving that dogs certainly aren't just a man's best friend. The photos are absolutely delightful, I guarantee you will smile the whole way through! I especially love the always sexy Brigitte Bardot on the cover- she is adorable!

Its hard not to adore one of Mick Jagger's love interests. Marianne Faithfull was a wonderfully intriguing and alluring socialite/rock goddess, teetering on the edge of destruction. Though rebellious, she always remained poised, lovely, and unforgettable.

Boy oh boy

Joanna's news that she is having a boy has sparked my baby fever yet again! I spent the evening looking at teeny tiny clothes for precious little ones. Since I won't be having a baby anytime soon, I figured I could do some personal shopping for Joanna ;)

Pastel Garden

J. Mendel's Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear collection is like a dream. It has a very pastel, earthy, Alice in Wonderland feel to it. The colors are radiant and crisp. The fabrics are soft as they drape perfectly against the body. The entire collection is refreshing and exhilarating- what do you think?

Lovely Natural

I love how natural Brooke Shields looked in The Blue Lagoon. I don't know why we have gotten so addicted to coloring and straightening our hair, tanning our skin, and packing on the makeup when there is nothing more beautiful and pure than going natural. I love Brooke's hair, its so healthy and wholesome! I definitely am going to use this picture as a reminder that less is more!

Hello, I Love You, Won't You Tell Me Your Name

I can't stop myself. I've fallen in love with another boy. I just watched the delightful film Elvis & Anabelle and could not stop myself from blushing at the sight of actor Max Minghella. He is a brooding young man with a rugged swagger. You must must must watch Elvis & Anabelle!

Gelato Vero

If you are ever in San Diego, take a trip to Gelato Vero on India Street. I grew up a block away from Gelato Vero, and I loved being able to walk down the street to get the most delicious gelato in San Diego! My favorite is the vanilla bean, simple and delightful!

Fresh Start

Mmmm I love the idea of a new year, and a fresh start! I was going to make a long list of resolutions, but they always end up stressing me out and making me feel lousy if I mess up. Instead, I am going to make one general resolution- relax! Happy New Year!
