J. Crew is undeniably on fire lately! I am continually inspired by well "everything" but today it was by the adorable video on their site! {i need to download that french song}. I bought this shirt a few weeks ago..and love how they mix it up.{imagine having those legs-you could wear anything} I can't get enough of stripes lately {i'm sure this will pass}.
I often use fashion as a starting point for my design projects, you could build a room on these three images alone! {see below for some ideas}
love the bend wood chair in a weathered version. {i have one that I need to revamp, still toying with some ideas - but this looks cool}

Also like what "Ascot Friday" did with her stripes..the tan, black look is working for me!
this is sort of how my brain functions and where the inspiration begins to take me design wise! { i work this way for all my clients - now you know why i LOVE my job!}

this rug is a steal right now here!
{throw in some crisp white drapes and either a weathered dining table and lacquered Thonet bentwood chair or the reverse and your done!}

this rug is from Madeline Weinrib

I'll leave you with a quote my husband received this week..

Fortune Cookie Wisdom:

"Your happiness is before you, not behind you! Cherish it."

{I'm living for the moment, I can't look to Fall fashion just yet}

Have a lovely weekend!

Dang, I was thinking the same thing about her legs, if only! Love the jewelry she is wearing. These gals would look good in a paper sack though!

I couldn't agree more, i've watched that jcrew video a zillion times, it's so sweet, good, and inspiring! great room too!

Totally. Bought the Saint James shirt, have the Dorian wedge on order in black. I'm such a sucker for good marketing.

Ugh, I am so mad at you right now because I just went on to JCrew's site and want EVERYTHING in that collection. Love it and great post. xoxo

Let me know when you find the french song too I want it as well! Why spend on labels when JCrew makes you look & feel like a million bucks! Great post!

Get tired of stripes?! Never!

Lee said...

The outfits and the way the photos are set up are fabulous. Wish we all had a professional personal wardrobe person!

I NEED that black and white rug. And i'd love to get it while it's a good deal. Could you fix the link or post the source?
