Petals and Glimmer

if you don’t already read Jen’s blog Honey Kennedy then you should head over there right now and subscribe. Jen is the queen of finding pretty things to look at, and i especially love when she shares new & interesting lookbooks from small and  independent designers.


Hello there! My name is Jen and I write the blog, Honey Kennedy. I’m happy to be here guest blogging for Diana today while she moves to her new home in the city. Thanks for having me, Diana!

My post is loosely based on my love for those pretty light pink and metallic boxes you get when you buy macarons from Ladurée. Now that I’ve put my collage together, it has become clear that I was also inspired by the hints of spring and blooms that have been teasing our minds lately here in the Pacific Northwest. OK, without further ado, here are ten things I’ve been admiring. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. The Fellini Blouse from Toujours Toi Family Affairs
The perfect amount of shimmer. I really love the weight of that cotton with the silver–so pretty.

2. The Nimphaea Collar by Licia Florio
I love how these look like coral rose petals. I like to imagine that they also smell like beautiful summer garden roses!

3. The Rhinestone Burst Bobby Pin from Twigs & Honey
Myra’s new collection of hair adornments and veils is absolutely stunning. I love this little dazzler.

4. Small Metallic Notebook from Alder & Co
I love these little leather notebooks! The worn look to the silver and gold makes me so happy. They also remind me of a clutch I have.

5. New Blankets from Pendleton’s The Portland Collection A/W 2012
I own one of their blankets from last season and can’t wait to get my mitts on another in the fall! See my recent Pendleton post —> HERE.

6. 1921 Sterling Walker & Hall Fox from Pullman Gallery
I would love to have this naughty fox snarl at me from my desk.

7. Pink A/W 2012 Dress by Jil Sander
This Jil Sander collection was one of my fashion week runway favorites for Autumn 2012. Sadly, it seems this may be the last for the line from creative genius, Raf Simons. The colors are so exquisite! The color of this dress is DREAMY–so soft, yet vibrant.

8. Vintage Dress from Xtabay Vintage
The details on the sleeves for this pretty 20s silk chiffon wedding dress kill me. I wish everything in fashion was this thoughtful.

9. Block Print Bedding from ABC Home
I am obsessed with this pretty bedding. I love the Aqaba, Zarqa and Provence prints! I’ve been going to look at these beauties several times a week for the past couple months. Love!

10. Vetyver Bouquet Glass Candle from Curio Noir
I love nice candles. This one contains notes of Cypress, Orange Flower, Jasmine and Vetiver. I love their packaging and handcrafted glass jars. I’d love to get my nose on Tubereuse Noir, too.

    The queen of pretty indeed! Jen, you find the best stuff. I particularly like the fox – he’s far more handsome than anything I have on my desk.

    Love the composition of your collages – so much great inspiration around the blogosphere today! And the blankets – I am in need of a blanket, especially on this rainy, windy PNW day…
