Fuchsia & Red + Weekend Links

Kelly
February 22

This week I’m feeling inspired by deep fuchsia and bright reds and I’m in love with these two photos. On the rocks will (finally) be returning next week and I’m so excited to share some new libation ideas with you (you can see a sneak peek right here).

I’m prepping for a 12 (yes 12!) look bridal shoot which will be revealed March 29th so posting will probably be a bit sporadic next week as I run back and forth to LA to retrieve dresses, pick up flowers, and pull props.

In the meantime, here are some weekend links, enjoy!

Flower Chic: Bold Ikat

Kelly
July 11

 

I’ve really been digging Ikat lately (pretty sure its gonna be the next “chevron”) and I’m loving this bold version I recently picked up at Michael Levine’s. The bold red, yellow, pink aganist white is just so perfect for summer. When I found yellow, with a tinge of red, peonies at Fabulous Florals, its was obvious these two were meant to be together.

For the container, I used a white and gold haviland bowl (the same one I used for Wedding Chicks) layered on a gold scalloped tray I picked up at a consignment store. The gold glassware is vintage and is from an antique store in Los Alamos. I’m seriously loving gold right now.

To make this arrangement I used clear floral tape and created a grid at the top of the container (this acts as floral frog, and holds your flowers in place). I used these insane yellow/red peonies, but you could easily use only dahlias which are in season right now. Anyway, to make the arrangement you will need:

2 bunches yellow/red striped tulips

1 bunch yellow peonies

1 bunch red/yellow dahlias

2 bunches yellow/red calla lillies

1 bunch geranium

Floral Shears

Clear floral tape

Puppy Chic on the Fourth of July

Kelly
July 04

I’m so looking forward to relaxing today and snuggling with my oh-so-appropriately dressed puppy, Mira.

I found the scarf at a antique store for $8 bones (pun intended) and it looks so good on Ms. Mira. I hope your fourth will be filled with chic furry friends and a cocktail or two… perhaps one of these?
