Everyone has had a basic white t-shirt at one point or another, but Alexa Gellar believes this basic wardrobe staple can be more exciting. Her line of cutout tees, Eighteenth, takes the old favorite and transforms it into a fun, geometric silhouette.

I've officially found my favorite site for wallpaper: Wallpaper From The 70's. Gorgeous florals, geometrics, and baroque prints inspired by caposhi retro design. Check out the gallery for room ideas.
I recently did my first art show which was exciting! Every month the local art gallery opens its doors for Third Thursday , an event showcasing local musicians and artists. Here are a few pieces from the collection. The rest can be found at Whimsy Prints.

This fantastical floral-themed collection features designs and colors from Liberty of London, the British design house known for its whimsical prints. From rosy pink lips to creamy matte shadows, it's SO perfect for Spring!

I was getting back to my fashion roots yesterday and catching up on February's fashion week and the previous show in September. Giles Deacon - wonderful designer! I love his use of color and the whimsy in his prints.
I think this movie is going to be awesome! Alice in Wonderland - Tim Burton style - hits theaters today and I can't wait to see it. The makeup and costume are reason enough for me, but to top it off it stars Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, whose similar character I loved in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

For those of us who live for fashion, here is a must-see behind-the-scenes documentary of Anna Wintour and the making of Vogue. Shot for the September issue, or the "Bible" of fashion, we see the 5 month journey of editing the most important issue of the year. Designers decide what to produce for a season and Ms. Wintour decides what trends will stay. Seem kind of dictator-ish? Well, it is! It's the way of the fashion industry.
What I really enjoyed about this movie was watching the photoshoots as they're being done. The models, the makeup, the extravagant traveling around the world to capture a couple of high- fashion images! And most of the inspiration and styling was done by one person...I'd say Grace has one of the best jobs you can find.
