my week in photos...

The stunning Santora Building of the Arts-located in the chic Santa Ana Arts District-built in 1928
the building displays a rare "Churrigueresque" Spanish Ultra Baroque style architecture...
it's my very favorite building in the OC
and right next door is...

 memphis restaurant...
with it's modern twist on Southern cooking
made for a fun Friday night out.


 my new favorite magazine...
the cover story-
Vogue's Italian editor...and how her personal blog has 
helped circulation  numbers...by showing the human side of an editor

(as a side note, I have spent much more time in bookstores recently
{as I wait to pick up  my youngest from school}

as I have given myself a month hiatus from shopping for clothes....)
[2 more weeks to go)]


 Saturday's search for Sprinkle cupcakes with my darling daughter
led us to Beverly Hills


 out takes from this weeks black and white shoot


Ahhh....Lanvin's encrusted belt...
during a little Rodeo window shopping....

sequin wall paper...the Beverly Wilshire Hotel


a little more Lanvin perfection...


baubles I'm working on this week...


a little serving of Dolce and Gabbana...fruit salad..
I enjoy how this image captures both the 
display and the Rodeo street reflection


a little Memphis texture




as always

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life



thanks so for stopping by
