An Artful Weekend: Lovely Longhorns

Lately I've been incredibly inspired by longhorn skulls as decor. There is something very majestic and mysterious about them and even a little bit creepy. But mixed in with a touch of pattern and color they are absolutely brilliant...
This is definitely next on my list for a home decor project, happy weekend everyone...Enjoy!!


Tuesday, December 4, 2012 // Free People Aspen Holiday

Speaking of the beauty of of the biggest perks of my job is Aspen. It is by far the most beautiful airborn view I have ever seen. The terrain just gets more and more stunning as you approach the top and I find myself glued to the airplane window every time I go...
And since Aspen is the place to be for the Holidays, we had to give it a little extra display love this season. My favorite element was these adorable hand painted vintage skis that our home office sent me to play with, and this is what I came up with...
Just a few snapshots of the Holiday magic happening in Free People right now...Enjoy!

Curated Collection // Mountains in Color

Because my mountain view is absent on this dreary gray Seattle day, a mini collection of color infused mountainscapes are inspiring me today...

Here's to the boldest of colors in the highest of places...Enjoy!

An Artful Weekend: From Up Above

I came across this 'Plane Windows' series by artist Jim Darling and immediately felt a connection. Lately I've been spending a lot of my life up in the air and I'm often taken aback by how beautiful the view out of my little portal window can be...
Hope your weekend is filled with artful inspiration...Enjoy!

Brand Love // Pamela Love

I have a bit of an obsession with jewelry designer Pamela Love. I feel like every collection she makes is a stunning culmination of all of my favorite elements and her branding is right up my alley. I absolutely love everything she makes but I especially love her styling, and these still shots that currently live on her homepage are a perfect example of her authentic point of view. I feel like they're little snapshots into her creative world...

Style Inspo: Cowboys and Indians

Lately I've been inspired by the wild wild west. On a rainy and grey Northwest day I'm longing for the dry heat, blue skies and bold colors of the Southwest. I love the mixed metals, native prints and organic textures against geometric shapes that embody a modern twist on Southwestern style...

Oh yeah, and I think I may have finally ended the search for the perfect boot. Thank you, Pamela Love, perfection as usual. Happy Halloween!!

An Artful Weekend: Galaxy Eyes

Happy Sunday! I'm off to Los Angeles today to help open our brand new Santa Monica Free People and I can't wait to be beach-side. There is just something about salt water, sand and clear blue skies that is just good for the soul. These gorgeous prints from Galaxy Eyes are like a little dose of that for your wall...
I hope your weekend was full of blue skies, or whatever your version of that may be...Enjoy!

Jewelry Love: Hanna Reingold

Did I mention I get to work with some crazy talented people? Well miss Hanna Reingold is definitely one of them. She showed her work at last month's Art Show and my friends, we have an uber talented jewelry designer in our midst. Each uniquely hand crafted crystal piece is a work of art in itself and I'm kind of in love. They're a mash up of quartz, leather and vintage findings and they are pure bohemian brilliance...
She made this last piece specially for yours truly and I plan on wearing the thing out. You gotta love a chunky statement piece that somehow goes with everything in your closet. Happy Friday everyone...Enjoy!!

An Artful Weekend: Alexandra Valenti

Alexandra Valenti is one of those artists that continues to produce work that emanates her signature wanderlust style while at the same time innovating and creating something fresh and new with each project she takes on. Her bohemian brilliance is completely unique, mixing stunningly raw photography and fashion with watercolor and patterning in a way that makes each image feel like a little portal into a purely artistic world...

Wanting to spend the weekend soaking up new inspiration, Alexandra Valenti was on one of the first places I turned...Enjoy!
