Wedding October 6, 2014

This was what our caravan saw as we ended our 5 hour drive to a beautiful, secret, location in California. My first thought, “gorgeous!”

The barn was spacious with actual hay on the ground. There was a game of horse shoes, a full sized carriage, and, my fav, a wall of antlers. The tables were set toward the back of the barn and they were simple, clean, and utterly flawless. The bride and groom sat at their special table with lavender garland and beautiful tableware.

Bridal Shower!

So, a lot of my friends have been getting married, I mean a lot.  I guess we’re just at that age, ahem ahem 21.  Well, that’s a lie. Anyway, it’s given me the opportunity to become a little bit of a wedding planner. My friend Keish and I put our planning powers together and designed a truly special Italian bridal shower for our bestie Sasha.

Here is the full table setting. We decided to go with a long table on the patio to give a little Tuscany. We mixed metals and used as many different chairs as possible.  We covered the table in greenery and hung roses and leaves in garlands.  Mason jars filled with succulents were the shower gifts.

I had a little artsy moment and made this calming film as we cleaned up.  All in all it was an amazing and love filled day.

Givenchy

Art, Celebrity, Fashion December 28, 2010

Excuse my sloppy French translation skills, but Vouge Paris just announced the release of Givenchy’s new line of bags, Obsedia, set to release in February.  Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci attributes his Italian upbringing with many of his designs and this line is no different.  The the dark, almost Gothic, bag line is strong yet feminine and makes me feel like I should be hunting foxes through the English countryside.  I know that’s not PC, but you get what I mean.
