five on friday 9.6.13

it's friday, i'm in love...

1.  i love this article that points out seven ways your grandmother dressed better than you.  i can't tell you how many times i used to go through my grandma's closet as a little girl and admired all of her intricately detailed shoes and tailored dresses that she had for years and years.  (hopefully the same can be said by my granddaughters, at least regarding my manolos and louboutins... those were a small investment!)

2.  this is a great tutorial from apartment 34 on how to style a gallery wall.

 3.  speaking of a gallery wall... i'm in love with this schnauzer wall bust from anthropologie featured in the gallery wall tutorial above (i hold a very special place in my heart for schnauzers)!

 4.  i'm dying for this linen pillow, but rather than paying a ridiculous amount for it (i mean, ridiculous)... i may just have to get crafty and diy my own hand-stamped version for less.  the lyrics to this song are so dear to me, i can remember my mom and grandma singing this to me as a child.

5.  have you come across menswear dog?  this shiba inu has a mean eye for fashion, and knows how to strike a serious pose!  what a fun tumbler page :)

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Girl, I love the styles back in the 20's on. Some of it was a little boring, but then so much of it was just so CLASSY, chic, and things back then just seemed, like you said, to have so much more detail and care into the making of it. Great job. Happy Friday love!

    1. thanks liz! i'm glad i'm not the only one who appreciates classic style in a world where people wear jeans to weddings (i mean, really??) :-) i hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I'm going to need to go read that article. I swear all the old pics of my grandparents are soo chic! Def inspiring in today's world of F21 and cheapo! Cheers to Friday!

    1. i agree laura, i love looking at the pictures of my grandparents when they were young. they always seemed to be dressed to the nines! sadly, i doubt the same will be said about me by my grandchildren. if only they could see me typing away in my target leggings right now, it's a good thing there's no cameras around :)
