♥ untamed heart.

known mostly for her signature animal rings, daphna simon debuted her jewelry 
collection in 2007 and has garnered media attention ever since.

with the launch of her new website, the jewelry designer, who makes each
piece by hand in her NY studio, has just debuted "untamed jewels," a more affordable
boutique line of gold-plated & sterling silver pieces that are equally exquisite
and a fraction of the cost :)

if i couldn't have the leopard ring above, i would definitely
love to have one of these wild things on my finger right now:

♥ where'd you get those eyes?

...and speaking of project runway season 11, another designer that has caught
my eye is local talent  joseph aaron segal. 'eye' being the operative word-
since nearly everything he makes is blessed with double vision 8)

♥ a fool for tulle. part eight.

season 11 of project runway just started and i am already in love
with samantha black's first runway offering: a black shift dress with
geometric cut outs and a fluttery tulle overlay.
i want it. i want it. i want it. i want it.

♥ hold onto your hat!

i always say that the world needs more hats.
so, when i glimpsed this glamorous floral headpiece from
milliner piers atkinson in the latest issue of  bazaar,
my heart skipped a beat or two.

ps. watch the vintage style video of his latest collection,
and see some of my favorites below.

♥ something wicked this way comes.

follow me on instagram!

next wednesday, january 30th, the lovely ladies at wicked peacock will be 
teaming up with future boston alliance to host a marvelous event, aptly called
"wicked favorite things" at the emerald lounge in boston's revere hotel

i and a handful of boston fashion bloggers have been asked to share some of my
 favorite instagram photos, which will be printed and hung on display
during the event. 

the event will consist of a trunk show with some of their fabulous pieces,
 a photobooth and signature wicked cocktails. unfortunately, i will be pulling
an all-nighter at forever 21 for our early spring floorset, and will not be able 
to see it in person :( so if you live in the area- you must promise me you
will go and instagram me some pics of my instragram pics! :)

here are some spring accessories you may also see in person. (jealous!)

♥ in the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.

early last summer, i visited my friend maggie on the farm she now manages.
nick was doing some electrical work in their greenhouse and i came by
to see him in action, and to see what vegetables look like growing
in the earth! (did you know broccoli grows like a flower??)

anyway-maggie noticed i had put in a pair of strawberry earrings for the visit-
 and she asked me, "sami- did you dress for the farm?"--maybe i did!
and maybe on cold days like this past week, i wish i could be
standing in that greenhouse again, gathering warmth and
watching things grow.

♥ i ♥ lucy.

i was at barnes and noble the other day and something (other than a book!) stopped me right 
in my tracks- this gorgeously illustrated i love lucy collection looks like something 
right out of lichtenstein's notebook- a series of dvds that should be both watched
 and hung up on a wall as art. 

i think i need every single one of them because i totally miss watching the 
show on nick at nite as a kid. remember when they played shows that
weren't from the early 90's?

also available on amazon

♥ long live the maxi dress.

so, nick bought me a long, lime green floral maxi dress for christmas 
and the first thing i thought was "hello, mrs. brady," but then i watched 
the movie, the long goodbye (1973) and fell head over heels in love with
the ease and chicness of the caftan-style dresses worn by actress,
nina van pallandt. 

the first thing i thought was- "i need more of those dresses!" and so last weekend
when i was out on a thrift store adventure with my cousin, i found this floral number (which 
could have walked right off the set of the partridge family,) at raspberry beret in somerville
 and now i just need a big wooden beaded necklace, straw hat and maybe house on the
beach to go with it!
