Phillip Lim for TARGET
Are you as excited as I am for the Phillip Lim and Target collaboration?? The bags are amazing, the prints rock and I can't wait to see it all in person, and at a great price point. I am probably most excited about these bags. The colors are great, and they look so expensive! Hoping I can snag one at a more wallet-friendly price (bags range from in price from $35-$55) than his original bags. I'm also hoping to snag a pair of those powder blue pants! 

September 15th can't come soon enough, but I have a feeling we are going to have a Missoni for Target type store sell-out, so I'll be shopping on ebay. Check out the full lookbook here.

Mad About Malachite

Totally obsessed with malachite, and it's not because green is my favorite color, or that emerald is Pantone's color of the year. Its the pattern and the detail (ok and the color too), and I want malachite in my house and on my body. Every piece looks so unique and so fancy! It's really giving me an itch to try some kind of faux malachite painting technique like this amazing desk  that Jenny from little green notebook did, but on a much smaller scale, like maybe a box like the one above or a tray. I ordered this book from the 90's called The New Paint Magic, that is full of faux painting techniques, including one on malachite! I'll keep you posted on that project.

For now here are some malachite items to swoon over, maybe sell your car and buy that Monique Lhuillier dress! I wonder if they have a technique for faux malachite tie dying?  I think I would be willing to give it a whirl.
