Maybe it's love.

It's 5 things I love Friday. Here are a few of the things I have been obsessing over this week.

1. Floral Shorts:

Here                                     Here


Here                                     I will own these!

I don't know when my search for the perfect floral shorts started, but it has finally come to an end. Those red Urban Outfitters shorts are going to fill a hole in my wardrobe and my heart.

2. Lace anything:

Modcloth                              Urban Outfitters

WhiteOwl                             Stella Mccartney (in my dreams)

Anthropologie                                           Modcloth

 IrregularExpressions                                        Urban Outfitters


Anthropologie                                             Forever 21

Can you tell that I am desperate for spring?

3. Purple Eye Shadow:


I have green eyes, so purple eye shadow is supposed to make them look brighter. Strangely enough, it works. I just need to remember not to wear this look with my favorite red lipstick... otherwise it's a lot of look.

4. Candy:


This isn't a new obsession. It is just an addiction that is particularly out of control this week. I ate box of Mike&Ikes and a box of Jujubes in 2 days. Do you know how hard it is to eat a box of jujubes?? They are ridiculously chewy. Some one help me.

5. How YOU Twitch it:

I love seeing the way you wear your Twitch pieces. Email me pics anytime. ( Here)

Have a great weekend ladies.

Organized closet. Messy hair.

Here is a peek at my accessories closet for the shop. My shooting space is in what should be the dining area of my apartment. The adjacent pantry cupboard is perfect for housing all the belts and glasses needed for our weekly shoots. It is almost never this neat, and by the end of each shoot everything is in a pile behind the camera. I thought I would share it with you in this rare organized state since it definitely will not last.

Dress: Vintage (Will be added to the shop tonight.)
Jacket: Kenneth Cole Reaction. There goes my no shopping record.
Tights: Target
Heels: Thrifted, Nine West.

Thrift loves and lessons

Thrifting for the store often leads to thrifting for myself. Here are a few finds that have made their way into my kitsch little apartment.

1. Fawn Planter: I squealed with delight upon seeing this behind the counter. I then informed the cashier that "I am going to kill a plant in this!" She did not share my excitement.

2. Fawn Plaque: Deer are not a theme in my apartment....yet. It could definitely happen at this thrifting rate, so the lions and owls had better watch out. Well, maybe just the owls since the discovery channel says the lions will be fine.

3. Tea Cups: The boy says I have the apartment of a little old lady. My ever growing tea cup collection does not help this view. Who cares what he thinks anyway? He has black leather furniture.

4. Beaded Bow Belt: That's right. Beads AND Bows. It doesn't get much better. Model Megan (torso pictured above) even wore it in last weekend's shoot.

5. Dress/Top/or Skirt for me: Not pictured. Oddly enough I haven't bought myself anything to wear in the last 3 weeks. It must be Alyson's influence.


It pains me to no end that there is no picture to go with this story. Last week I saw a custom portrait at my local thrift store. (15.99) I did not have my camera or my phone with me. It was perhaps the most glorious thrift store painting ever seen. Description: 6 foot tall, greased up, shirtless, man in tight pants SPOONING a teeny-tiny woman in a lace slip. On a bearskin rug. In front of a fire. With the woman holding a CD in her hand entitled "Love Songs." I want nothing more than to share this with you, and I can't. However, I did learn a valuable life lesson; ALWAYS bring my camera thrifting...either that or shell out the $15.99.
