Orion's Fairport Dress


I absolutely adore this dress. Of course it's already sold out!
"Like Hector Guimard's art nouveau metro entrances or the ornate wing of a swallow-tailed butterfly. The Fairport dress features a richly designed print and matching belt." (Via Oh Joy)

John Wooden Redefining Success


I needed this today:
With profound simplicity, Coach John Wooden redefines success and urges us all to pursue the best in ourselves. In this inspiring talk he shares the advice he gave his players at UCLA, quotes poetry and remembers his father’s wisdom.

My friend asked me to design her wedding invitations. So, lately I've been doing a lot of research on weddings. I love this idea. I will keep it in mind for my big day. (Via Jeremy and Kathleen)

Tax Time: Envelope Book


This is just what I needed!
Tax time is fast approaching, which means many of us are busy kicking ourselves (once again) for our lack of financial organization. Every year we swear we’re going to keep track of all our expenses and hold on to every receipt. Well, it’s our belief that if you create a system that is simple and aesthetically pleasing, you can trick yourself into forming smart money-managing habits. We recently picked up a box of airmail envelopes from the dollar store and transformed them into this handy receipt organizer using a hole punch and some binder rings.
Happy organizing!
