Über-chic gold place card holders for your holiday tabletop spread! Dig the fish cuz we’re on the coast, so we’re – like – allowed to have them. Loving the pineapple because it’s the symbol of Southern hospitality, duh. Buuut- of course the chinoiserie pagoda situation rocks my world, especially if paired with burnt orange calligraphy on super thick stock with a coordinating dipped edge. Just sayin’.
hot or not
A Loire Valley bride in repose, as shot by the fabulous Shawn Connell for Christian Oth. I don’t mind her theatrics or the from-another-time richness of her gown; it’s pure fashion and pure fun, so why not?
So my bff Becky sent me this high-larious pic, and I first thought: “It’s already hot-or-not fodder because it says couch, not sofa.” Wannabe interior design speak snobbery aside, this picture is proof that pictures are still worth 1000 words. Or at least worth $349? Further commentary:
1. If a custom fitting is “included”, can one also select patterns + yarns? I’d love to weave a burgundy or mauve in there, and chevron is soooo 2010.
2. Could I customize mine with a cap sleeve? I just can’t rock a bare arm like this gal.
3. Do I spy a snippet of the arm of “Stinky”, our 9′ Goodwill sofa from college, resurrected for this “photo shoot”? How’d they track that down?! I want it back.
Here’s what I’m thinking for a potential Thanksgiving ensemble . . . of course you can supplement your existing aztec/camo/on-point scarves, any ankle boots, good dark skinny jeans, tortoise sunnies, and chunky gold baubles where need be, natch!
