Style | Patterned

A cool vintage silk top with a big bold pattern takes center stage with each other these outfits. I didn't want it to be out shined, but amplified by simple combinations. 

(1) The fist is a classic and simple way to rock any bold top, denim jeans and a blazer or jacket. I am thinking more spring with this, so a clean crisp white worked great! A bold necklace finishes the combo.   
Jacket- H&M   |  Top- vintage  |  Jeans- j.crew matchstick

(2) A long pale gray maxi looks fab with all the cool tones in the top, and of course I had to add in the denim jacket! Again a springy outfit good for day to night- slip off the flats or sandles for heels and ta-da, date night!  
Jacket- Old Navy  |  Top- vintage  |  Maxi- Gap

(3) A bit more refined on this outfit and mixing a warm tone pant with the cool colors in the top and toning it all down with a navy blue jacket. Add some funky statement necklace or hint of metallic! I can see this outfit for a business lunch for sure!
Blazer- vintage  | Top- vintage  |  Trousers- Target

Work | evolution of feathers

From sketches, to cutting and finally filing, stamping and adding patina, these feathers take a whit to create. I love making each one, they are a small work of art or painting. Created from brass sheet an hung on 14K gold filled chain, this is one necklace you can wear always and forever!

Interiors | one spot- 3 ways

Classic and Cozy
I wanted to do some styling for my portfolio and thought duh, I'll use my own house and rob from other rooms to create three distinct looks!
The area is at the top of my stair case, its small and narrow so you can't do much but a chair and small table. The light is great so I wanted to create a little reading nook!
To create more of a 'classic' (but always vintage b/c its my thing) look, I keep the color scheme calm and light with a pop of blue. Mixing texture and patterns keeps it fun and cozy feeling!

A Bit Mid Century 
I love the bright colors and bold patterns of the mid century movement + all the metallic brass! The monochromatic color scheme keeps the bright teal the show stopper! Also keeping the objects minimal really reads mid century, its all about 'less is more'.  Mixed with the shades of green in the knit chevron blanket and the little suculant it really is a playful nook!

Boho and Bright
This last option is pushing the color to the max! The Mexican blanket makes this nook happy and fun along with textured table really reads boho and world traveled feel. Again here, mixing up the color, patterns and layers to really create that collected, lush, energetic feel. Add a stack of colorful books, a few plants, framed photos and gently places mala beads and ta-da!! Oh yea, and then "put a bird on it!" -Portlandia
