Dangit, she even had a decent passport picture! Mine (which I renewed 2 years ago) was for the longest time the single most embarrassing photo of me in circulation (and i'm even including my lame freshman year CC ID in which I was rocking a "hippie-goth" look). The passport shot was literally "Buzz, your girlfriend, WOOF" bad.
Big fan of mustard yellow, especially in the fall time. Above, some of my finds on pinterest this week in pursuit of big bird yellow
Makes me wanna do The Dude dance
Warning: this will start to make your head hurt if you watch it for too long. Like wildly downing an Icee. Or doing math.
Snapshot of a couple in the middle of prepping thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately cooking makes me feel the opposite-- I'm usually standing around looking confused with batter on my face and craziness in my eyes. Oh, and something is most likely burning somewhere nearby.
Last thursday we toasted our longtime coworker and good friend, Corrie, on her big move to another fun and exciting job. It's sad to say goodbye to someone so lovely and talented-- she will be seriously missed by the TCO crew and our little tight knit group of creatives.
The perfect piece to help spruce up any ole outfit. By Kate Spade, who, let's be honest, can do no wrong.
Our design theme this year that will adorn all of our TCO stores. From this, I created an engraved invitation template that consists of vintage type, as well as elements of a carousel cartouche, for our store directors to send out to customers.
Found wonderful color inspiration today on pinterest and created a mood board. Loving the playfulness of pink and orange and how they exude an overall cheeriness.
Above is the save the date (sent out earlier this year) with the chosen color palette ( fuchsia and kelly green). I incorporated that palette into their options for their big event-- giving it a sort of sophisticated lilly pulitzer spin. Hoping to attend next spring... nothing quite like escaping the grim cold of nyc for Palm Beach in the early spring.
More pics from our latest excursion upstate. Poor woodstock (and surrounding areas) will never be the same. Highlights included: costume party (I dressed up as lipstick trustafarian occupying woodstock and kimmies joined me as a disgruntled cholo), hot toddies (with whiskey, cloves and fresh apple cider), our fire place (big props to duraflame and newspapers for making us look like girl scout graduates), late night dancing at our favorite haunt (The Havana club in Woodstock), and of course, a full on pancake fix at sweet sue's in Phoencia.
Finally got around to downloading all my pics, and decided to give a quick mixed sampling of my italian adventures. We started in Rome (actually arrived TO occupy rome, for the love), then trained it to Florence for a few more days and ended with the world's loveliest little collection of coastal romantic towns, cinque terre. Kimmies and I are already planning round 2... still so much of the country to see and heaps and heaps of delicious things left to eat and drink.
Above are some of my favorite shots by Norman Parkinson. Such an amazing photographer... his work predominantly graced the pages of vogue and harper's bazaar back in the 50's and 60's.
It's that time of year again! Time for 10 girls to pack their bags for the great upstate outdoors. That's right, we're headed tonight to the second annual Woodskank Retreat. Endless bottles of wine, roaring fireplaces, cooking, dancing, hiking, late night gymnastics, campfires, horsebacking riding and hangovers; this weekend has it all. Above is our little cabin that we love so much-- Beautiful views and perfectly decorated. And the bathrooms. Oh my lord the bathrooms. Heated tiles, multi shower heads, jacuzzis.... it's like a mini spa of awesomeness right at our fingertips.
Come on over and see some of my pins--- I'm finally getting my feet wet over at Pinterest (I know, I know, I'm the last to jump on this social media platform). My Illustrator/artist category is already busting at the seams... SO many talented people I would love to work with on Tiffany projects. I have had the incredible opportunity to see firsthand work from the likes of francois berthoud, mats gustfaston, sarah singe and anja kroencke on commissioned TCO projects. Above, one of my all time favorite pieces, by francois berthoud.
