Love the idea of Elte's second life rugs, the process by which a 40-70 year old traditional rug is dyed a new and beautiful overall color. It's so cool how the old pattern shows through and recycled into something gorgeous. I want the pink one!

My dream winter coat, by Reiss. Sold out of course and too expensive, but maybe I can learn to make a similar one next winter. So simple and beautiful.

Just a little bit of dream Christmas-styling on Polyvore!
Also I've been searching high and low (in this case low) for a similar look to the Miu Miu Suede ankle boots, they are the perfect mix between and heel and boot for the winter, so if anyone has seen any :)

I'm finally home for Christmas break (yay!) after working all term on our fashion lines at school. I'm so proud of everyone and it was a great runway show at our University Port Campus. I worked on a small line named Écru, made up of three outfits all in a neutral palette. I couldn't have had a better team, and I'm so happy with how everything went.

I have a hair crush on Olivia Wilde in this month's Flare Magazine. Perfect amount of highlights and waves.

just a quick picture of my bedroom window on a sunny morning before going to the studio. I have one week until my final projects are due, so it's going to be busy busy until then. Christmas break is going to feel wonderful.

Just a photo of some of the accessories I'm using for my school fashion line. I made the small feather clutch the other night while watching endless repeats of SATC on Cosmo.

I can't believe I didn't hear about this Ikea baking book titled Homemade is Best. The photography is so clever and inspiring. This is like my two favorite things coming together in one book, hopefully I can find an English version!

I loved browsing through all of these swing tags on flickr. We need to design our own for the small lines we're working on in school, and I'm almost where I want mine to be. There are so many options of shape, size, font, color. Such a fun final touch to work on that make your designs feel complete!

Some soothing light blues for stressful (but fun) times. I think I'll always love this color scheme because of how it makes you feel. Like fresh air and a cold glass of water. It looks great in any type of space, halls, bedrooms, even dining rooms.

Just a touch of feather is what I'm liking right now. I love the way they make a skirt float, and add softness to a structured bag. I'm going to try and make a little clutch of my own to go with my small line I'm making for school.
