Last month’s Spring 2016 Prada show had me seeing stripes. I’m a sucker for stripes – the clean crispness and endless color combinations can pull an entire look together.
Stripes can have the same effect in a room. See our work-in-progress dining room.
There are endless stripe combinations. For more ideas, check out below and get your stripe on!
Happy day-after-Halloween. Let the sorting begin.
And what a perfect opportunity to revisit one of the best tales of Halloween candy angst: Us and Them, by David Sedaris. Enjoy!
Here are a few ideas for Halloween decor that’s as stylish as it is spooky:
Mr. Owl – feels cool in a 70’s handcrafted way
The Birds: At $1 each from the local dollar store, you really can feel like Tippi Hedren!

My happy place today. Rainbow cake from the 33rd annual “Hearts and Hands Bazaar” from the Dallas All Saints Women’s Organization.
I’ll never know how long it took to make it, but this cake was pure bake sale perfection that had me singing “Somwhere over the…”
Well, you get the picture.
Breaking in my new TOMS on a recent shopping trip to NYC.
I like that they do the Athleisure thing without being overly sneakery. Cute with a dress or skirt. Plus they’re super light and comfortable.
Everyone knows that Columbus Day really means Fair Day in Dallas: when schools are closed for the holiday and students are given free tickets to attend the mammoth event of fried culinary delights known as the Texas State Fair. (Thank you Christopher.)
Everything is BIG in Dallas, and the fair is no exception. What better way to view the Dallas skyline at dusk than from the top of a 212 foot ferris wheel? How about a twinkie – that’s been deep fried in a sumptuous batter served with powdered sugar and chocolate dipping sauce? (Remarkably moist with the perfect amount of sweetness.) And of course no fair is complete without a 55 foot tall cowboy. That would be Big Tex.
It’s quintessential Texas.
And if you’re really up for a walk on the wild side, there’s always the alligator sausage…
To Dads who know a good accessory when they see one. Hope you had a fab day!
