Dress Like The First Daughters!

Posted on January 26, 2009 in More Fun by | Comment

No one could stop talking about how cute Sasha and Malia, President Obama’s two daughters looked on Tuesday at the Inauguration…They also couldn’t stop talking about how sad it was that you couldn’t buy those jackets for your little loved ones. Well.. this morning on The Today Show they featured OUR Autumn Coat Bows paired with a satin sash so your Lilly Lover can look perfectly presidential herself!

A “Jolly” Joy Ride

Posted on January 22, 2009 in More Fun by | 7 comments

This is the CUTEST car I have ever seen!! Bright color, wicker seats, and an optional fringe top…where do we sign? It was the ultimate Mediterranean beach buggy in the late 1950′s. These babies can get up to 59 mph and a whopping 52 MPG!! 32 Jolly cars were used as taxis on the island of Catalina off the coast of Southern California in the years 1958-1962. And if you needed more of a reason to hunt one down, Aristotle Onasis had one ( yes as in Jackie O’s husband).

Candle Sleeves?

KaarsKoker = Candle Sleeve (it’s Dutch). A fabulous, unique way to jazz your light fixtures, spice up your chandeliers and change the whole ambiance of a room. We LOVE these! And I know I went a little crazy with the pics but they are works of art in themselves! These things have been seen in restaurants, storefronts and even mixed in with wedding decor. Hailing from Seattle, WA and started in 2004; April Pride Allison the creator, plans to add more products to the line in the near future.

Facelift For The Whitehouse…

Posted on January 15, 2009 in More Fun by | 2 comments

Michael S. Smith was officially named for the interior redesign of the Obama’s Whitehouse in the up-coming months. He is well known among high-profile celebs and loved for his ability to warm up a room through design. Hailing from California, he’ll be using his sunny aesthetic to brighten up the Whitehouse. He’s rumored to have already started shopping and in a recent statement released that he will strive to showcase some contempory American artists per the family’s request. Maybe they’ll be needing some framed Lilly Pulitzer original prints….?

You can head to Domino to check out some of their fav Smith rooms. We love this bathroom- a man that knows how to highlight pink peonies is fine with us!

Champagne For New Years Eve…Obviously

Posted on December 30, 2008 in More Fun by | 6 comments

Champagne wines earn their title through strict french regulations; the grapes must be hand picked at harvest time,  the vineyards are inspected regularly and most obvious, it must hail from the Champagne region of France. I love all champagnes but not to bore you with a never-ending list here are just a few:

5 Favs for New Years Bubbly:

1.Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame  ($185ish)

2. Krug Grand Cuvee ($130ish)

3. Bollinger Grand Annee ($135ish) * a James Bond favorite*

4. Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label ($45ish)

5. Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage ($50ish)

**Splurge a little: They say champagne tastes best when served from a magnum sized bottle ; )
