Something Saturday: Stella & Dot!

Many of you know that I work with a jewelry line called Stella & Dot. It is vintage-inspired, made in Fair Labor facilities, and so on trend. I wear it every day, and I set up my jewels in people's homes, coffee shops, wine bars... anywhere women are having a good time. :)

I wanted to share with you a little more about it.

Wardrobe Wednesday: Lovely Happenings Guest Post


Today I have a little something special for you! I got asked to do a Guest Post on Lovely Happenings. :) I met Megan of Lovely Happenings about a month ago at a Stella & Dot event in Seattle, and she so happened to be this amazing blogger and lives close to me! I was thrilled when she asked me to participate in a guest post in which several different bloggers made inspiration boards, all around the same item {the striped top}.
Everyone came up with such different outfits! Here's mine {I call it "city sherpa"}:

Wardrobe Wednesday: Interview Outfit

I had an interview with a lovely business today. I loved them - we just sat and chatted and played with their dog and talked about ideas. They were fantastic, and I hope they call me back with a yes. :)
One of the great mysteries in life is what to wear to an interview that will:
a. Look professional.
b. have some personality.
c. get you hired.

I wanted to stay away from the traditional "black skirt, blazer, simple top" theme that every business professor will tell you to wear. My style is how i do art! I don't want to hide it! So, I decided (with the help of my buddy Julie of to wear a color-blocked, bright, happy getup.

Hold up! Have I shown you this yet?

I'm not sure if I ever showed you the little impromptu shoot I did with my buddy Kayla Barker in Dallas this spring. You might remember Kayla from our Marfa Shoot.
Here are a few pics that she took of me when we were galavanting in Dallas. :)

Be sure to check out Kayla's work! She's the bomb. :)


p.s. don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Wardrobe Wednesday BLOG SALE! {charity, love, and hope included}


BLOG SALE! I'm getting rid of anything that is no longer a favorite or needed item. I'm realizing that I don't need all of this stuff, you know? I've been realizing newly just how much I have been blessed with, like access to clean water and consistent food supply, parents who love me, a job that can be free to live as i wish, travel, a lovely husband who treats me as an equal. 
As a result of some soul-searching, i have decided that I'd like the proceeds of the blog sale to go towards loving/feeding/freeing people. AND to reward your giving hearts, we are doing a giveaway as well... 

So, here's the deal:

Makeup {and hair} Monday

For today's Makeup Monday, I went with HUGE lashes and bronzy shadow. I had also just gotten my hair cut to look more like this:

Here's the look, as translated by Nicole Bacon at Magdolls:

My makeup is:
Desire - Bare Escentuals+ a Plum powder on upper and lower lashline+ Clinique Precious Posy Blush + Colossal Lash + highlighter on inner corners of the eye.

I hope you enjoy this look - i am finding new ways to play with makeup since my hair is so different now! What do you think?

Wardrobe Wednesday: BDIB Animal Prints!

Today I am participating in my first Bloggers Do It Better! Woohoo!It is animal prints - my fave.
But first off, here are some photos of my haircut since i trimmed it yesterday:

And here is my entry - a furry one:

 {found at billy goat vintage, Portland}

I think it will be really fun for photoshoots and concerts. 

And here's a little treasure that I found at Ross for 21.99 - can you believe it???:

I wish my photos were better, but I was taking them myself by hanging the camera on a fencepost and setting the timer... Maybe one day I'll be cool enough to have someone take my photos for me. ;)

Much much love, darlins!

Makeup Monday: Simplicity+headbands

I want to do a give you a little taste of one of my favorite artists. Julie Jack is also one of my best friends - Boo and her boo are bff's, and we all 4 moved to Portland together! She is an amazing artist, and happens to be good at making anything and everything cute. 
She makes these AMAZING headbands, which I especially love now that I have short hair. 
Here is the one that I just bought from her etsy store:

{i'm wearing these earrings}

My makeup for the day was, as you can see, purply and soft. Perfect for a rainy day with precious accessories.

Do yourself a favor and check out Julie's website here.

I hope your week is off to a lovely start!
