pattern spy: bow ties

pattern-spy-bow-tiesThis freaking adorable Kate Spade dress was my easy favorite from their upcoming Spring 2013 collection and while I was reminiscing about my 30th birthday over the weekend I remembered how I used men’s bow ties as napkin holders/party favors which kinda made me wish I had that dress at the time! … or maybe I will just have to use it as a good excuse to throw another party. In the meantime I am also wishing I could make this Rene Daniels painting mine.

Pattern Spy: Feathers



There is something I have always liked about feathers. When I was a kid I used to collect them and turn them into quill pens by stealing the guts out of a bic ink pen and transferring it into the feather. I have also seriously considered getting some sort of feather tattoo (don’t tell my parents they are still very anti-tattoo. ha), but for now I will happily settle for one of these less permanent ways to display my love for feathers. I am especially obsessed with the feather printed jeans.
