buon viaggio...

We through  Ellis a 'buon viaggio' party
as she leaves to study in Italy...
in a few days.


For the party set in our backyard...
I brought out my silk 'patio dress' for the occasion.



My favorite pieces from my studio last week...
bone and rhinestone bracelets...
as always I am loving the juxtaposition of elements...


the party was a great success...
and of course...
I posted about it here



as always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. Bone and rhinestones... swooning over here, seriously swooning.

    My daughter leaves next Tuesday... I am pouring myself into other things now, trying to pretend that I am not feeling what is about to happen.
