Trends vs Personal Style

Trends vs Personal Style

I’ve been mulling over the ideas of trends versus personal style recently. This time of year lends itself to that sort of discussion… “what’s in, what’s out, what’s the next hot thing”. When I sat down to compose a list of my own, though, I bumped against a funny obstacle. With every “passe” trend I...
A Lesson in Scarf Tying

A Lesson in Scarf Tying

Over the years, I’ve made my love for silk scarves fairly apparent. (ex. HERE, HERE, and HERE) So, when SamĀ arrived to our photo shoot meeting place a couple weeks ago, I fell swift and hard for her vibrant silk number draped elegantly across her shoulders. Completely impressed with her styling skills, I asked Sam if...

Living Vintage by Alt for Living

We can probably all agree that complaining is bad. It brings along with it negativity, discontent, and lots of other yucky stuff I’d rather not get roped into. But, today, I have just one teeny-weeny, itsy-bitsy complaint to submit. It’s about an aspect of the industry I work in… interior design. I spend a good...

A large portion of what makes the Craine home so elegant and attractive are the iconic furniture pieces that Cindy and Patrick chose for their home. This red Eames chair not only molds to the body perfectly but the lines of it’s silhouette are wonderfully simple and pleasing as well. The beauty is in the...

Style Story… Patrick & Cindy Craine

Patrick and Cindy are my neighbors but I had never met them until the day of this shoot. For months, I drove by their unexpectedly modern house amidst our neighborhood of eclectic – and most definitely more traditional – homes and wondered about the unique family and furnishings that must live inside. Well, I finally...

Introducing… The Lovely Hunter

Today, I’d like you all to give a warm, hardy welcome to my second sponsor (you may have noticed her ad in my sidebar for the past couple weeks), The Lovely Hunter! I met Sofia, curator and owner of the vintage shop The Lovely Hunter, while shopping The Dallas Flea with my friend Erin last...

Vintage Heaven

Last weekend I attended the first ever Dallas Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show at the Grapevine Convention Center. (remember THIS post?) For one prone to a short attention span in normal environments, this particular event posed a special challenge… making it through to the end without my mind exploding from vintage overload!! Needless to say,...
