Peter Pan Won't Grow Up to Be a Man

After a very tiring week at the Gallery I like to enjoy my weekend to the fullest. Luckily - my weekend falls on a Sunday - Monday. This is great because everyone seems to have to work on Monday, except me! So, I kind of feel like I'm living in Never Never Land - where I'm always a kid who doesn't have to go to work. 

Peter pan collars are instrumental in helping me revisit a time when my life was care-free and stress-less.

On this past Monday - I walked over to my BFF's Mischa G.'s house. She lives across Tompkins Square Park from me - so when I walk to her house I get to see a bunch of really cute French bulldogs in the dog run!

Mischa G. is a stylist at Bumble & Bumble and she always makes sure that my hair looks beautiful. She  is the one responsible for my super straight fringe.

Dress - Top Ten

Oh and this dress has the cutest silhouette!

Dress: Top Ten, Deer Necklace: Forever 21

It's always fun to pair an adorable peter pan collar with a small pendant. This teeny tiny deer necklace gives it the right charm - doesn't it remind you of enchanted forests and fairy tales? And look at that broken heart print - doesn't that remind you of adolescence?

Ring: Vintage (Onyx + Silver), Nails: OPI in Fiery Fiona

Throwing on some polka dots in white over yellow nails gives your nails a subtle pop - like a twig snapping under the hooves of a doe.

Oh - and here's a really smart way to hang some hats - look at the background in this picture.
Mischa G. added hooks to her wall in a grid formation and hung her hats on them. It saves space and adds grace ;-)
(Yep. I rhyme.)


Sometimes I get lost in a world of intricacy when I look at the details of a lace collar. So does artist Katherine Mangiardi. Below you'll see one of her large scale, intricate paintings of lace. She makes lace feel like a witness through time - as it appears old and worn. It tells secrets from another time, as it decays and transforms into something even more beautiful.

...oh so, don't ever be afraid to grow up.
