loving the british flair

09.18.2012

i have my eye on boden this fall. i just got that latest catalogs consistently a few weeks apart and they definitely got my attention. i am loving the british influence and the fall colors and patterns. the models look effortless and the clothes look comfy. we know the style and comfort is there but i i personally don’t own any boden clothing so i am not sure how they will fit my body, but i am up for the fitting. how are you feeling about boden this fall, take it or leave it?

New space


my older sister and i recently made the decision to move our studio space together. her space is much larger and more versatile. mine was tiny, tiny and i out grew it very fast. what i am most excited about is collaborating or just working in the same space as her. she has been a huge inspiration for me growing up and she always seems to have the answer for creative solutions—and hey she is pretty handy!

things are moving quickly and will be all set up in our space very shortly. our biggest challenge is getting out chandler & price pilot old style press moved and working.

we are sharing our space in a studio tour next week for an event put together by the connecticut art director’s club. looking forward to sharing our work in progress.

Photo Ops from Alt


super late on my follow up from alt summit nyc but I couldn’t go without posting some of my fave highlights from the day.

by far my favorite part of the day was the keynote by tina roth eisenberg from swissmiss. i have been following and admiring her blog for years. she is more awesome than you can even imagine her being. her 8 steps for a creative life were duly noted. sarah from notetoself put together an awesome infographic with all the steps.

she gave me a tattly (one of her many side projects) and it conveniently said yay! which was exactly what i was feeling…yessss! (my hair is definitly having a moment in this pic, probably should not have napped on the train ride into the city.)

lunch was sponsored by land of nod, who shared a sneak peek at the holiday goods.

whattttt? martha decided to pop in and say hi. love her!

after all the awesome panels we walked through the martha stewart headquarters which led us to the rooftop party. it was gorg!

oh and i won a microsoft arc keyboard and arc mouse (designed by oh joy) thanks bing!!!!

all pics were provided by alt – you can see more here.

some of my instagrams from the day, including a snap of editorial director of martha stewart weddings, darcy miller’s office with her incredible moodboard.

see you next year at alt 2013!

So excited for this day! ALT NYC is here I remember so badly how I wanted to go to the SLC event in January and I am so glad that I jumped at these tickets this time. Looking forward to a day hearing from this awesome lineup  of creative people at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.

Bridal Show

04.26.2012

sorry for my absence lately! busy busy and everything seems to be moving non-stop. i was part of a bridal show this past weekend at the Hilton in Mystic as a wedding stationery vendor. excited to start working on invites for some new couples. the process is so fun, but i especially love the beginning getting to know the couple and learning the flavor and essence of their dream wedding.

i was torn about the best way to show all my work in a little tiny space besides an album which I did for my first show. i wanted to do something that would draw people in and i always had this vision of displaying everything on a birdcage. the daisy fabric gave it a backyard/garden look. I also had a white mailbox but couldn’t fit it on the table : ( next time. captured a few pics on instagram.

so excited about my new letterpress business cards with zebra print backside.

Styled // Get Graphic

04.19.2012

when i have nothing to wear or can’t seem to get together, dresses are always my savior. they are so easy to just throw on over leggings or with tights or sandals. the weather here in connecticut has been alternating how it wants to be. one minute it is hot and i am packing way my boots and tights and the next thing you know i am so cold i have goosebumps.

not all days are bright and playful. somedays i like to be a bit more muted color wise…

everybody loves a graphic patterns. they really draw your attention even if the colors aren’t bright. this dress was from a little shop in westport,ct. I forgot the name : ( The brand is millau. It seems a bit hard to find, but my research shoes that LF stores has a large selection of millau clothing. mix it with some pinstriped tights and shell-toed heels or flats and your ready to go! easy—right?

a bit too high for my everyday but if i need to dress it up, these shoes from baker’s are perfect.

and if you get cold a little cape coat is always good to have on hand. this heather gray one is from forever 21.

as always all photos are by my fave pola esther.

Would love to hear what your go-to pieces are in the morning when you just can’t get an outfit together? leave in comments!
