My Bookshelf: Meet the Newest Members

Yesterday the hubby surprised me with some awesome new additions to our bookshelf...I guess he does pay attention to all the blabbing I do about my blog world because he picked up on how much I have really wanted the Design Sponge @ home book. With all of its fresh ideas and style, I'm so excited to dig into this new coffee table book which now sits aside my Domino Book. 

He also picked up a copy of the "stylists guide to NYC" which was something I bumped into when we went to antrhopologie recently. We are going to NYC this summer and he thought I might find it handy. It is geniusly and beautifully put together and is a great guide for anyone that just adores NYC and wants to see more than just the everyday nuances. It gives you tips and places to go for things like hardware, jewelry, antiques, places to eat, odd facts etc with a stylists, lifestyle and interiors point of view. I told him that he might have made the biggest mistake because now I will be dragging him with me all over town using this book. 

I love collecting books...both to read and to display. I have quite a few on my want list. On my "Cant wait" list, I have the Cupcakes and Cashmere book which is coming out this year. You can pre-order it on Amazon...which I did! Also cant wait for the Cannelle et Vanille Cookbook which is also coming out this year. This is one of my favorite food blogs because her recipes are simple and home grown and her photos are oh so lovely!

On my "Want" list, you have the Coveted Chanel Collections book, Vogue covers, Nostalgia in Vogue, Vogue Living, Elle keeps going

What are your favorite books both to read and display. I always love a good book rec. Happy Friday everyone!

Closet Addition: Flowy Electric Pleats

flowy electric pleats

Spring has sprung and Easter is just around the corner. If you are looking to add some new versatile flavor to your closet look no further. I think every closet should have at least one electric pleat skirt or dress (both is good too!) in a flowy & flouncy material. I personally love chiffon skirts. Its perfect for this season, the styles, lengths and color choices are endless. To top it off, they are very comfy and the pressed pleats make any outfit look polished. I personally need to find a pleated maxi for my closet. You can go simple and casual and tuck in your favorite tee into the skirts, go on a date and spruce it up with a statement blouse, foxy heels and your favorite clutch, or go to work and pair those dresses with a  sharp blazer and pumps. A lot of the skirts & dresses I used in this design board, are reasonably priced... and those that are not, well, I am sure similar styles can always be found for much less...I'm all about that! so go get one!

Happy Hunger Games!

Yes it is finally here! Have you read the book? are you part of the throngs of people who have gotten addicted to what is the Hunger Games?...I am definitely one of them. 
Seriously, go check it's a great story about morality, relations, and has lots of good drama...and is wickedly twisted. I have been anticipating the movie ever since I finished the whole series and I am so excited to see it at a private screening tomorrow with my family. No long lines for this girl!

It will be interesting to see all the fashion and styling used in this movie and to pass the time, this slow Friday afternoon, I couldn't help but conjure up my own Hunger Games inspiration boards. BTW, the awesome pin featured above is from etsy artist the bird the bee, its sold out...obviously, but keep checking for their restock.

Enjoy and...Happy Hunger Games!...May the odds be ever in your favor!
