An olympic size outdoor marble pool, a Roman tiled indoor pool, a Roman mosaic covered entryway, neoclassical statues, cyprus trees, and an elaborate interior featuring a movie theatre. –Hearst Castle, located in San Simeon, CA, is the epitome of fanciful living. In the 1920′s, it was one of Mr. William Randolph Hearst’s many vacation homes. This castle it particular was his favorite and the one in which he hosted the most elaborate Gatsby-esque parties– which socialite friends and even his many maids and butlers would attend. It makes you want to travel back in time so you that you can get the chance to be one of the attendees of a party–and have a genuine experience of what it was like to live the kind of life Mr. Hearst lived at the time…

Wearing a Pet Portrait Is Just So Rad


I came across this insanely cool pet portrait shirt and said to myself,  “I don’t know why, but it is just so rad.” I then came to a conclusive check list of why it is “so rad.” It is indeed rad because

1) It has dogs on it. duh.

2) It is colorful

3) It is made in Italy, which means the quality is impeccable. Ya feel me?

Pair it with ripped denim and untuck it partially or make it more feminine with a flirty skirt and heels. While it may be a men’s piece, I believe it is completely capable of being incorporated into a woman’s wardrobe. The question you ask is where must I wear this flashy top? A puppy birthday party? Walking my dog? PET STORE? The answer is no, please please please I beg of you stay away from being shown with your dog or any dog in general/ anything related to a dog. However, please DO wear this cool printed shirt anywhere else and with any other species.

Hide And Seek

It’s always nice when  a designer chooses to do something good when a particular cause is in need. Today is the last day Linda Farrow eyewear is donating 100% of all purchases to the Philippines. I am lusting over these insane eyeglasses in the form of elegantly manicured hands by Jeremy Scott. Such a fun item for a party or to make a bold statement without reason! Check these chic babes out here.

Prada + Wes Anderson

Picture yourself in a an Italian Piazza in 1955, surrounded by the people of this quaint town you call home, where everyone knows everyone. Not much action occurs on the daily, however today in particular you are standing in the Piazza and Jason Schwartzman has just crashed his racing car into Jesus Christ, causing chaos amongst the town. This Italian cinema created in the eye of two major talents, Miuccia Prada and Wes Anderson, debuted a few days ago at the Rome Film Festival. Titled Castello Cavalcanti, this film merges art, architecture, and film into one. Put yourself in the scene and get a laugh out of this 8 minute film!

Twists, Japanese Squid, and Nan Goldin

I thought I would start some new posting of my weekly inspiration! After sewing a dress this week inspired by the 1960′s, brainstorming for my upcoming “nightlife” art photography project, and staying sane with lots of work, I have been gravitating towards braids and twists, glowing firefly squid of Japan, and photographer Nan Goldin.
