Sea Breeze

With the weather warming up here in New York, I've already started longing for life on the beach. There have been some great sea-inspired entertaining pieces I've seen around lately. I just wish I had a lovely cottage by the sea to entertain in and I'd have all of these at my table!

Items above from: 
Pottery Barn - serving pieces, salt & pepper shakers
Rosanna - Sea glass bottles and votives
Anthropologie - Blowfish tea set
Cookbooks can be found on Amazon.com

Online window shopping, yet again, trying to find a high-waisted black tulip skirt. I've been on the hunt for one for ages, but still can't find exactly what I'm looking for...typically because I get side-tracked / fall in love with another unaffordable item of clothing. But this time, I found a few things that aren't totally out of my budget, thanks to Lulu's well-edited selection of drool-worthy items. May I present to you, a "this and that" mélange of things whitepeach covets from Lulu's:

Billabong Wild Thing Skirt in red and navy. This would be adorable with a sheer v-neck tee, tights like in the photo, a drapey scarf, and either flats or sky-high heels. $44.

Live Wire zipper leggings in black. So damn hot. Can barely deal. $30.

Parker Double Skirt Dress in navy twill. Of course they sold out of my size. sighhh. $38.

Heart Attack Dress in black/grey. Love the pockets and holy buhgeezus, this looks just like the navy nubbly wool dress I got at Goodwill last December...but left at my friend Alison's and still haven't claimed it...must.go.back. $33--a steal if they have your size.

Dorothy Sweatheart Dress in red plaid. A cute little plaid number--reminds me of a L.A.M.B. dress from a couple seasons ago. $55.

Vogue Dress in hot pink/black. Deadly cute with the demi-cups and tulip skirt to hide wide birthing hips. $49.

aaaaaaand still no sight of black high-waisted tulip skirt. No surprise there.

(Near) The top of my Christmas wishlist

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the "i am not a paper cup" coffee cup. A cheeky play off Anya Hindmarch's "I'm not a plastic bag".
Clever, utilitarian, guaranteed to induce all sorts of envy at the office. Me likey.

And you thought only Hef could get away with satin robes...

*minus the shoes--trashy trashy choice, Kate.

I am also I big fan of the Keep Calm and Carry On posters - it's currently hanging in my bedroom and my cubicle at work. sfgirlbybay has them on her etsy shop.

Cute as a Cupcake

As a cupcake obsessed person, I couldn't help but stop and adore these new additions to the MoMA design store- Cupcake Canisters from Barbara Thompson. If only I had more counter space to keep such charming things like this. It's a sacrifice you have to make living in a Manhattan apartment!

Look of the day

Natalie Portman, looking effortlessly stunning, as usual, in a sheer black Rodarte frock. Makeup, shoes, clutch--all fab. Hair would be perfect too if it were a tad less frizzy. Otherwise, bellisima.
