luxe + lillies: April 2012

I love a good success story, I love one even more when it has been Coveteur'd. Since starting Tibi in 2006 with her husband, Amy Smilovic has brought her fashion brand from start-up to household name. I love that the colors she uses to make her brand what it is- don't stop on the cutting room floor and continue right into her Greenwich, Connecticut home...

If you have been reading here awhile, you know that I haven't been here as much as I would always like. My life has been so incredibly wonderfully busy the last 6ish months, and I've spent a lot of time thinking about exactly the direction I want to move in with my career...

After my wedding, it was really difficult to find quality stationary that I could personalize with our names/monogram, or really any sort of design for a reasonable price and included envelopes. Late Winter / early Spring is a busy time in my family, and I was sending invites, writing notes, thank yous, and handing out gifts like it was my fulltime job. It was expensive.
 $5 a card here, $30 for a set of 15 there, and oh yea- gift tags and wrappings. 

You may have already gotten a sneak peek over here

So... I designed my own, and now I'm taking a leap of faith. So I introduce to you, Lizalle.


When Lizalle goes live in May, there will be so many choices at such great prices, I promise you creating stationary and other desk accessories might just be more difficult than you had imagined . If you love a good monogram, some greek key border, or maybe its european envelopes that strike your fancy- you won't want to miss out!

Not only did I clean up around here, but I think I would like to add a neon pink skirt to my everyday look, too.  This spring has been my favorite in terms of fashion in as long as I can remember. I love the neons paired with fun pastels [mint, lavender] and I seriously can't get enough.  They way these ladies have paired pink with neutrals as if to say 'pink is the new nude' - its perfection, really...

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend! Last week I kept seeing snippits of Martinique Wallpaper around the web and love the way the bold and lush pattern really dominates a small space. Maybe "dominate" isn't a term you want to use when referencing a particular one item in a space... but something about this one I just love...

It's been more than 6 months since my wedding, and it has been really hard to keep it tight lipped.
But, I just knew I had to wait to let you see it first over on one of my favorite wedding blogs, Style Me Pretty. If you would like to see a few pics from my big day, and read about how the whole event was nearly blown away... click here!

Amassing a collection of nail polishes, and stowing them neatly under our vanities or in closets is something most of us do, right? We buy them in pretty colors, and when they are all together is looks like a little party of polishes - so, if we liked these colors enough to buy them and wear them, why shouldn't we show them off at home too?

Anytime you add clean and bright glassware, especially in apothecary form- it instantly gives a tablescape a little pizazz. I think its the perfect hint of glamour and color to add to your dressing space! Not to mention... it frees up a little storage space!
