Anyone who appreciates art, has to be able to realize the intricacy of these dresses and the time that is put into these pieces of fashion. They are works of art. Unbelievably beautiful.

My new side tables!

As you all know, I have slowly been redecorating my new apartment. I bought these nightstands about two weeks ago and finally have a place for these cute lamps my mom bought me for my birthday back in March when I moved in! I replaced the knobs that came on the nightstands with some from Anthropologie so they would match my bedspread and the lamp to pull everything together.

How do you like it?!

Bedspread – Anthropologie (bought on sale a while ago, but they have other colors still. Purple shown in the link); Knobs – Anthropologie; Frame – Old from UrbanOutfitters on sale; Lamp and Shade – Target; Nightstand – Target.

I also just bought a rug for my front room, and I am sooo excited because recently a friend showed me this great website called Joss & Main. It is one of those flash sale sites, much like Hautelook or Gilt, but for home decorating and furniture! It’s fabulous and they sell great brands! I found the perfect rug for my front room for basically 50% off and it was way lower priced (before the sale) than the ones I was originally looking at. Anyway, here it is! I’ll post a picture in the front room when I get it so you can actually see how it matches!

Here is a link to the site! I highly suggest signing up for their emails so you don’t miss out on their deals! Enjoy! Joss & Main!

Personalized Jewelry! Nashelle’s Identity Necklace and much more!

I have this thing with personalized jewelry…especially initials. I’m just drawn to them. I love it. Maybe because it’s just for you. Here are some of my favorite initial and monogram pieces by some of my favorite jewelry designers right now, and a few fun ones from Etsy I found recently as well! I hope you enjoy and can get yourself something personal!

Nashelle Stone Chain ‘Identity’ Necklace – nashelle.com

(This is like the one I just got to replace the K that I lost. You can see it in my last Photoaday post. I got mine at a boutique in Provo, but you can order yours here! I’m obsessed with mine. I got my favorite color instead of my birthstone, but I think it’s cute to do however you want. They have large gems or small gems you can buy to hang on your necklace instead of buying the stones build into the necklace. They also have different sized initial pendants as well…take a look at the site to see! They have a design your own section. I love Nashelle!)

DVF Fall 2012 Collection

Diane von Furstenburg is one of my favorite designers. If I could have been Whitney Port when she got to intern for her I would have died…but then again I went to school and majored in science…so that’s a little far off…ANYWAY…last season I loved all of her fun prints and colors. This fall she has lots of simple structured pieces with bold colors. She hasn’t used quite as many prints, but I like this for fall because you can use accessories to mix things up. Plus, it makes layering a little bit easier. Here are some of my favorite pieces from this season’s upcoming collection.

To find these pieces look at Nordstrom.com, Shopbop.com, and Neimanmarcus.com.

‘Billow’ Silk Blouse

‘Cindy’ Acorn Lace Dress

‘Vintage Galaxy’ Jacket

‘Bairly Louche’ Blouse

‘Shannon’ Silk Wrap Dress

‘Kate’ Studded Leather Jacket

‘New Zarita’ Lace Dress

Square Crepe Dress (exclusive to Neiman Marcus)

‘Warner’ Flower Lace Dres

I had to post this one from the spring/summer collection because I have been lusting over this dress for what seems like forever and it’s on sale! So what if summer is already over right? I’m still in love! Plus it’s DVF and I’m pretty sure I can make that work for a few years right?
