dress you pretty

Ladylike glamour is all about stopping hearts, causing jaws to drop, and being insanely fabulous in a world where people seem to care less and less about how they present themselves when it comes to fashion and style. (Yes, we're grumpy today--we spent an entire weekend with sloppily dressed people while looking outrageously overdressed.)

Cherise Design is a breath of fresh air. The fabrics and designs are perfect for the rockabilly, burlesque, and pinup lover, who is looking for something in her favorite style, with something special in the details. Here are our favorites.

Forget-me-not black 50s reproduction dress.

A fine romance, gorgeous pale green butterfly print 50s reproduction dress.

Green 50's style taffeta prom dress, Olivia.

Check out Cherise for these fabulous dresses and more!

You live in color

Color. We see in it, we live in it. Some of us embrace the color; some are afraid of it. Whether you're a color nut or a timid tangerine, we've found some fabulous little finds in breezy blues and sunshine yellow to add some pizazz to your place.

Teal Art Deco dresser, Poppyseed Creative Living. Poppyseed has amazing little pieces of furniture painted in bewitching hues, chosen ingeniously for each individual piece!

Dogwood Flower Lidded Vessel, Whitney Smith Pottery. Another fabulous shop with incredibly colorful, elegant wares.

Tiny Golden Suns, 3 Lambs Design. Color your walls with whimsical, nostalgic, and inspiring art from 3 Lambs.

Darling Bleu Jardin, king duvet cover, Pretty Plum Sugar. An absolutely adorable shop full of lounge wear and home goodies.

And finally, My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living, by the endearing and wonderfully fun Jonathan Adler.

Enjoy your sight--give yourself fabulous, colorful, and gorgeous things to look at!

stripes

Nautical. Whimsical. Zebraic. Subversive. Stripes have a long fashion history, and an incredible visual range. They photograph extremely well and take ordinary pieces, from clothing to housewares, to extraordinary heights! Here are some stripes we love.

Alexa, Breton tee, Abi Bansal Design.

Rococo overdress and skirt, 11tyone.

Mod porcelain Candle holders, Shoshona Snow.

Pin-Up Sailor, black and white romper, Kitten Stitches.

Solstice Flat, nautical stripe, Hydra Heart.

And finally, The Devil's Cloth : A History of Stripes by Michel Pastoureau.

Get your stripes on. Guaranteed to make a statement that never goes out of fashion!
