Dotty for Dots!

Lately I've been luuuuhhhhving polka-dots, and now that I'm looking I'm seeing them everywhere! Clothing, shoes, home decor, stationary, artwork. Whether over-sized or teeny tiny, dots are always fun, classic and whimsical.

Here are some *choice* ways to incorporate polka-dots into your lifestyle and surroundings. Take a look around your environment: Are you seeing spots? Please share!

Decorating in the Nude

Source: ArtvsWallGallery.com Photographer Michael Grace-Martin
Don't get me wrong - I love color! I've incorporated pops of color throughout my home: deep reds, timeless turquoise, bright tangerine, and bold purple. However, this week I decided to explore a more subtle and soothing palette: nudes, blush pinks, and beiges. Think: 1. soft, sandy beaches; 2. a rosy, pink pearl necklace; 3. barely-there stockings; 4. those perfect nude Louboutins...You feelin me?

I discovered many stunning, sexy spaces, and I found myself thoroughly enjoying the simplicity of these rooms. Classic, feminine and beautiful. I hope you enjoy them, too!

Bittersweet Big-Girl Decisions

Today I've made a very difficult decision. After several months of weighing the pros and cons, I've decided to close up my shop space and focus my efforts on creating my retail website and design blog. This decision comes after some heartbreaking and challenging hurdles, both professional and personal, some which I could not overcome. 

Our retail space was only open for two months and brought in sparse foot traffic, however issues were raised by neighbors and local government officials regarding parking and zoning. It is very important to me to be a positive, contributing member of my community, so rather than fight back, I've decided to change paths. It was not easy to let this piece of my dream go - but I'm excited to see where this new path will take me.

Thank you so much for all of your support. I hope you will come along with me on this new journey. I'm always open and willing to receive feedback, suggestions, and comments. I'm especially interested in your suggestions regarding my online shop inventory - let me know if you're looking for something specific because I'm always out SHOPPING! :)
