On Display

My mother-in-law sent me the glass jewelry box pictured above. I fell in love the idea of displaying my favorite pieces. The second picture c/o Macyray is a project I am eager to attempt. I recently bought the perfect vintage frames for this undertaking at the Pasadena Rosebowl. Stay tuned for my first DIY hanging displays.

The flat has had a long rally as the office shoe du jour. However, this season's flats beg for a night on the town. Check out some of my favorites above.

Love Doves

One of my first jobs out of college was working as a personal assistant for a prominent Santa Barbara family. During my first week,  I was commissioned to wrapping school, where I was taught the secretes to seamless wrapping, bow assembly and crafting name tags.  I held the job for only 7 months  but the importance of presentation was ingrained in me.

Over the next several months I have four weddings and several bridal showers to attend  so I wanted to invest in a signature wrapping that would work for the various festivities. I was instantly attached to the Two Silver Dove paper pictured above. I love that it works with almost any color. I chose trendy lime green ribbon but I think it looks equally great with pinks.
