I love looking at backstage photos of fashion shows and seeing how the models dress off the runway. I agree with Alexander Wang when he says "anyone can get all dolled-up and glamorous, but it's how people dress on their off days that is the most inspiring" It's more fun to look to them as ordinary stylish girls (though I'm sure the free clothes do help)

My three submissions to Pia's my heart wanders project.

Very interesting look-book for Won Hundred. I love the couch concept.

I think I found the reason why I love to look at decorating magazines and photos of interiors so much...I can't remember which one I was reading, but the editor described the experience as "trying on another life" and visualizing yourself living in the space. Which is exactly what I do, and put stories to go with the pictures. Like these four photos from LivingEtc. There are four very different people living in these spaces, and you can almost get a sense of who they are just by the mood of the rooms. It's more satisfying.

I was attracted to pink things all morning. It's one of those colors that makes me feel good to look at it. That Serge pillow is amazing, funny contemporary image on such a traditional surface. It caught my eye on Holly Becker's collection of rooms on flickr. I go there so often when I'm bored and want to be inspired quickly. Also a topshop top, and shoes by Kate Spade (a giraffe print it looks like but it reminds me of cow spots)

I really enjoyed looking at the work spaces of Jennifer, Abbey and Amanda over at poppytalk. Seeing their desks in the middle of creation inspired me to make things.

I'm eagerly waiting to find out if I'll be given a position at a cosmetics counter. I was looking around a couple days ago, admiring the benefit cosmetics when it hit me how much I'd love to work there for the summer. I applied to three spots, so hopefully one will have me. It would be great to have a girly fun job, so in that mood this is my current wish list:

Anthropologie bag in 'watermelon' (really does look delicious.)
Benefit cream blush 'that gal'
Poppy red shorts from Club Monaco

Today I went to my favorite place in the world, The Papery, and never wanted to leave. I stocked up on scrap pieces of their decorative paper for my book and mail arts class in the fall. It was a fun date with Mom.

I just picked up the April issue of World of Interiors and found two talented letterpress printers who own a London studio called Harrington and Squires. They use both traditional methods of letterpress printing as well as digital printing, which create some very special looking pieces.

I found very beautiful creations from the portfolio of Rebecca Thuss on decor8 yesterday. It truly is an inspiration overload to look through her wide range of work.
