reFINEstyle in a frame

It's Wednesday. I like alliteration. So let's go with..."What I'm workin' on Wednesday!!" My next project has been months in the making. I'm on the hunt for a too-good-to-be-true deal on a vintage designer scarf to display in an over sized, gorgeous (also vintage) frame. 

My solution? - if you haven't been to this genius site yet, I strongly urge you to check it out. Think 1st Dibs but with designer (to-die-for) apparel and accessories. I'll let their consignment experts tell you, in their own words, what they're up to. is an online marketplace of pre-loved designer fashion and accessories. Curated by a hand-selected team of sellers across the country, an ever-changing selection of consignment merchandise is offered to the fashion-minded buyer at greatly reduced prices. The best pieces. All in one place.

My theory? The best place to find a too-good-to-be-true deal on an uber-fab scarf? A too-good-to-be-true online shop! Oh but it is true, friends.  It's true indeed.

Here are a couple dandies I've seen lately that caught my eye! (PS: I've learned the hard  way...if you see something on reFINEstyle that you want - grab it! The goods go quick!) (Oh! One more PS: My sister, Alissa of Re-Finery, is one of reFINEstyle's consignors! Make sure to check her stuff out too!!)

So which one is your favorite? I'll make sure to give updates with progress and pics once this project officially gets underway. In the meantime, mosey on over to reFINEstyle...and finally get your hands on that (discounted) Celine bag you've been coveting.

Giveaway time!

Big news today. I finally gathered up my courage and opened a shop on Etsy! It's kind of an odd mix of art, mcm/hollywood regency home decor and graphic design digital files for stationary, holiday cards or blog design. There's only 8 items listed but check back often because I'm going to be adding things every day! 

But I've got even more news. In celebration of ACS finding a second home on Etsy, I'm doing a         G I V E A W A Y exclusively for Recently readers! Check out Emily's blog post today to read all about it! Get on over there and enter to win!!

Clearly coveting

Thank you, thank you to Amy at House of Wentworth for sharing her favorite site for all things acrylic. Plexi-craft has just about anything you could ever possibly want for your that delightful, clear, see-through style. My new motivation to keep pushing pennies into my piggy bank? 

Their acrylic trunk, embellished with gold metal hardware and leather side handles - the perfect solution for showcasing my knock-off Missoni throw and sea coral pillows. 

Make sure you visit both House of Wentworth (visit often!) and Plexi-craft for inspiration, ideas and anything (acrylic) your splendid heart desires!

But later she noticed her photo was gathering some steam and now she's one of the top contestants! PLEASE "like" her photo on pinterest (it's the darling one of her son in the bathtub!) and she just might win! 

Thanks, folks. LYLAS.

Little Mister

I realized yesterday that I haven't posted pics of Little Mister in a while! So I'll make up for it with the following 38 photos from our trip to the Arboretum this week. Just kidding. Although I don't think the number is all that far from 38.
