Polka Dots and Peplum

Monday, August 27, 2012


Happy Monday y’all!
Now that I’m over all the hotel hoopla, its back to the daily grind with casual days spent shopping at my favorite local design gem: South Coast Collection aka SOCO. The primo destination for retail, creative studios, boutiques, artisan food, gourmet coffee and more! 


You know interior design’s going big time in these parts when all the heavy hitters have shops in the middle of Central Orange County. Think Scalamandre, Stark Carpet & Home, Pal + Smith (previously blogged about here), and one of my personal faves for fashionable textiles, Deco Home. 


Even if I’m simply window shopping with nothing on the agenda, it’s really nice to be strolling along this lush scenery, coffee in hand, searching for my next hit of inspiration. I’m seeing lotsa LOTSA greenery in the next design, perhaps a living wall made primarily out of bamboo with some navy and white polka dots thrown into the mix??? Ahhhhh, the “ol’ Outfit into Room Remix!”…hehe…I’ve been known to make even the most impossible pairings work, ya know ;D

Top: TJ Maxx Runway
Bottom: Forever 21 (similar HERE)
Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita (similar HERE)
Accessories: Natasha necklace, Vintage and gifted bracelets, Forever 21 ring

Thank you for all the comments and love regarding my Pasadena hotel project!

It means the world to me to have this community to engage in new ideas and designs with. All the feedback has been incredible and I really can't THANK YOU enough for taking time to send me a little shout out! I'll be posting a comprehensive shopping guide as soon as I can lock down all the merchandise...Definitely wanna make sure there's plenty of inventory available for purchase before I put it on blast!

Have an awesome start to the week everyone!
