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!


it’s almost 2011 and it’s time for a new favorite it bag.  girls, meet phoebe by celine.  it’s simple, sleek, and classic.  it’s something you can wear for years and years to come.  of course with the $3000+ price tag, it better make a great investment.  i’m normally a boring black bag kind of girl, but with the phoebe, i am totally head over heels in love with the navy, red, and camel colors.
