pattern spy: boobs!

pattern spy boobs // smitten studioBoobs, jugs, knockers… with so many names (262 according to this guy), it’s only right to have a few fun patterns to further celebrate our lady lumps (and these playful ones are pretty awesome). Keep an eye out for more in Rachel Antonoff’s Spring 2014 collection too!

What do you think, would you rock a breast print?

from the weekend: modernism week, palm springs

MODERNISM WEEK-ENDI was thrilled when I was asked to be a part of the #psmodsquad covering Modernism Week. A weekend in Palm Springs packed full of home tours, exhibitions, and cocktail parties all centered around midcentury architecture and design… YES, PLEASE!

Racquet club garden villas tour // racquet club Modernism week is happening right now and this weekend Rupe and I headed back to the desert to partake in the mid-century loving festivities. To see more of my instagrams from our trip check them out here.
