To celebrate the launch of The Stripe (as well as my fifth anniversary of blogging), I wanted to do something special, and so I decided to throw a party last Thursday. A few days later, I’m still pinching myself looking through the photos and seeing how well everything came together (and how many people came out!) I couldn’t have done any of it without the help of my friend Alex (she does this for a living) or our amazing venue, Sweethaus (they went over and above… hello, DIY macaron station!)
The latest in:
My friend Felicia (from This That Beauty) has the most beautiful headband. It looks like jewelry. I think it’s from Jennifer Behr. Seeing her out and about at one of many holiday parties inspired me… and made me think. You can toss your hair in a messy bun and still look amazing with a headband like that. So, I set out to make my own. And as luck would have it, it was rather easy…
Stripe Finds // Little discoveries you'll love
This is, most definitely, the perfect striped t-shirt. The thick fabric won’t cling, and it’s incredibly well made (especially when you consider its under-$30 price tag.) It’s available in five color combinations, and while I’m partial to the cream/navy, I love them all.
I discovered Mister Marvelous by Byredo, rather accidentally: I had a bunch of samples and thought I was putting on something else. Alas, I fell in love with the warm and woody fragrance. Though it’s meant for the boys, the neroli flower + green lavender make it a nice choice for the ladies, too!
I don’t remember the last time I received as many compliments on a piece of jewelry as I do when wearing these ear crawlers. They are just so perfect. Subtle and delicate, while still making a statement. And to think… they’re only $28!
