I never really gravitated toward the feather trend, but I love the way it's styled in the top photo.  
Just beautiful.

Spotted these beds on Design Files (from the home of Katie Graham) and I am now on a hunt to find one for myself. Does anyone know who carries these?! Love.

Kate Towers / photo shoot sneak peek

Recently, I had a photo shoot for a magazine column that I am a part of, and I got to wear the work of the very talented Kate Towers. I learned about Kate years ago and I wore one of her amazing dresses in a very early shoot as I built my career.

Now that I have grown so much in my business I was thrilled to be able to don a few more of her creations for a more personal shoot. Here are the two dresses I wore! (And although I haven't seen the shots yet I promise I'll share them with you!) Look at how beautiful the detail and color of her work is!! Thank you Kate Towers!!

I never wear green. But word on the street is that it's the "it" color for nails.
Pretty, right?

I have been working around the clock on a number of different projects in the fashion industry,

My little bits of inspiration for the week...

an investment in outerwear

Once a year I invest in an amazing piece of outerwear. Last year, it was a long camel in wool.
The year before, a black and navy swing coat.

This year I am not sure which direction I'll go. Thinking about a classic piece, in forest green. (above. At matches fashion.) I am also reeeeally loving these by Roksanda Ilincic:


Maybe this could be the year for a statement tapestry coat or one with beautiful embroidery (valentino, odlr ) :

This one by vince just may be the perfect wear-everyday coat...

Anyone want to weigh in?

Like something you saw above ?

Love, love, love the idea of mixing in some summer style (like this anchor) with fall pieces.
