Need to Buy: The Most Perfect Bag

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

I am just dying over the most perfect bag. If you know me, you know I have a bag obsession. Especially leather satchels. Mmm.

This is actually an ONA camera bag (which is wonderful, because it’s not always a good idea to dump your fancy camera in your purse!) but I’d put all my other stuff in there, too. Oh, and a knitting project!


At $309, it’s far from within my budget, but a girl can dream, right?
Christmas is coming up, too! *wink*

Thrift Store Find: 1947 Singer Dressmaker Guide

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

I found the coolest thing I’ve ever spent $.99 on yesterday at Savers – a Singer Dressmaker Guide dated 1942!

The sewing tips inside are timeless, of course, but the illustrations are particularly charming.

(Note the original $.25 price tag – holy inflation, Batman!)

Time to bust out Betty the Dressform and do some sewing!

Indie Obsession: Topaz Ring

This gorgeous topaz ring was on the front page of etsy today. I'm completely in love with it.


My dream (one of many) is to one day be an amazing metalsmith so I can have all the gorgeous jewelry I've ever wanted.

Baubles: Cathy Waterman Ring

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Oof. I just experienced an intense case of sticker shock.Cathy Waterman ring

I saw this beautiful ring on Pinterest (where else) and after some creative googling, discovered that it’s a mere $13,240 (of course it is).

It’s like every time I go into TJ Maxx and make a beeline for inevitably the most expensive handbag there.

(I guess at least I know I have good taste?)

Link Love: Society Social

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Through a link from the “Things I’m Afraid to Tell You” challenge (this thing just keeps giving and giving!), I happened across the lovely Roxy, who owns a business called Society Social.

They’re ”bringing the bar cart back”, and I, for one, could not be more excited about it.

For starters, I could not stop drooling over their website and magalog (yeah- they have a magalog. How freaking cool is that?)  The photo styling and design is impeccable; I love it.

They actually have a wide variety of furniture, but I’m really loving their bar carts. I don’t even really like drinking, but I’d love one of these in my house. I think my favorite is The Hostess? They’re all so very Mad Men.

That’s not even everything- they sell Hostess Gowns, vintage items (gasp!) and – wait for it – cocktail rings! Mother of God, I love cocktail rings.

I’m in love with how their items are so classic and vintage, yet updated with bright colors. They’re all seriously gorgeous.

Now, if you’ll leave me be, I’ll be daydreaming that I’m Joan Holloway, serving cocktails from a turquoise bar cart on my patio.

On my wishlist: Anthropologie Hardware

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

When Anthropologie undoubtedly calls me one day and says “Natalie, you’re so influential and stylish, and we want you to have anything you’d like from our store”, I’m going to be ready with this list. All of these beautiful knobs and pulls will go in my house. Which will, undoubtedly, be charming and adorable, just like me (snicker).
