finding the perfect bed is as hard as not shopping during black friday.  i didn’t realize until recently that beds are REALLy expensive.  every time i find one that i liked, it ends up being mucho $$$.

i’ve been sleeping on our west elm platform bed for the last 5 years and i’m really getting sick of it.  it was purchased back when i was really into minimalist design and platform bed was the shit.  however, ever since our paris trip a couple of years ago, i was completely inspired by the parisian style.  now one thing i really want to invest in is a new french bed.  it’s pretty much one of the last big furniture we really need for our place. i thought finding the perfect bed was hard, but finding the perfect french bed in the u.s. is near impossible.  after months of searching, i finally found a couple of contenders:

the sophia from layla grayce

the franchesca from liv chic

i’m still kind of iffy on both of them, but at least i am making progress!

ok, i have to admit that i am not the biggest juicy couture fan.  there was a period where i, like every girl, fell into the juicy couture sweat suits bandwagon.  but after the craze, i quickly found most of their design a little too dolled up and overly sweet for my taste.  that is saying a lot, since i have a pretty big sweet tooth (in food and designs).  so it was to my surprise that i am actually really attracted to their new polka dot accessories line!  i find the sweet and cute aesthetic really charming!  the colors are black with silver dots, light pink (damsel) with silver dots, and navy with gold dots.  i think the handbags  are a little too much cuteness for me, but the little accessories, i.e. wallets, ipad case, and mini bags are adorable!

ipad case – i think i want to get an ipad just for this case

critter mouse headphone – ok, this is not polka dot, but it’s just too cute not to share!  i want!

just bought the new book from fashion designer fleur wood, “food fashion friends.”  no cookbook has ever looked so glamorous.    a collection of recipes, beautiful photography, and fantasy like styling, this is truly chic and creative entertaining at its best!  i highly recommend!

this girl’s got me good.  i love the girliness of the baby blue maxi dress mixing with the cool leather jacket.  don’t forget about the hat, the hat took the outfit from cool to edgy.

i know the lace trend has been big for a couple of years already and it’s probably going to go out soon, but i just can’t get enough of it!  here are a few of my favorite lace pieces i found from some popular high street brands.  after all, i am a firm believer in not spending too much when it comes to super trendy items. 

forever21 mini skirt – i love that how the “leather” toughens up the lace.

forever21 maxi skirt – lace, check.  maxi skirt, check.  2 of the biggest trends at the moment all in one.  i’ve even seen mko rocking something like this.

asos lace dress – for the ultimate girliness, cream lace mini dresses is a must!  unfinished edges are my fav!

asos lace jacket – this jacket is a nice alternative to the beautiful stella mccartney.

mango lace top – it looks super flattering!  i really like the cream one, but it’s out of stock.  😦

topshop lace flats – aren’t these just the sweetest?
