Current Fall/Winter Obsession #3 .... Pleat and Ruffle Details

I love the strong detail that went into the design of these beautiful pieces. These are a great way to create some major visual appeal from otherwise basic forms.

Current Fall Obsession #2... Sequins

When it comes to sequins, be sure to have fun with your look! I like when you incorporate one piece that is entirely covered in sequins - a tank, a dress, shoes, a purse, or bold accessories. HOT HOT HOT!

Current Fall Obsession #1... Lace

This fall, I plan on incorporating lace into every look I have. I love the beauty and delicate nature of the material and its ability to be "toughened" up with the addition of simple accessories and leather.

It's fabulous for fall because it's easy to layer when the weather gets cooler. Here are some great pieces I am picking up for the current season:

Alexander Wang Cut Out Skirt

LNA Lace Tee

See by Chloe Lace Top Knit Dress

Urban Outfitters Lace tights

Interesting and Thoughtful

Elsewares is one of my favorite online boutiques for unique design for home and self. I have long loved these interesting wall-mounts from Harry Allen. These items provide such a larger visual impact than a basic vase for your flowers or a floral candy dish for your keys... these are conversation pieces and add a little something... and serve a functional purpose.

Stat Key Design

Recently, DailyCandy wrote about a company called Stat Key Design that creates key blanks in adorable patterns like the Knight Key, the (aptly named) House Key, and the super cute Heart Key - perhaps in reference to the old saying "Home is where the heart is"? These are so fun. Take a look.

With a sale going on right now, who can resist!?

Brook Farm General Store in Brooklyn is a "modern general store" offering vintage and new items. I love the photography of the products. Clean lines and muted colors. Simplicity at its finest.

Paul Rand

I love the graphic design genius of Paul Rand. Best known for his corporate logos, Rand was largely self-taught. I love his work because it showcases Vibrance, boldness, and creativity.
