I've developed a mild obsession lately for saddle blankets. They are everywhere it seems. I'd love to have a pair of chairs or even an entire sofa recovered in the fabric.

But for now, the closest I'm going to get is layering them over chairs. I still love the look. Especially paired with ikat. LOVE.

Oh Zoe....
Those massive bell bottoms. The huge sunnies... Rachel Zoe is one of my all time favorite style icons. 

She is the one who inspired me to sport my signature Ted Lapidus glasses. I think she is just amazing. 

AND... Did you know that she is guest editing on One King's Lane today? Ummm yes. Go there. Immediately.

I had the most amazing weekend. I was honored to attend a wedding of a very dear friend. It was held in the local botanical gardens and it was STUNNING. I even dressed the part in a fun floral dress. 

Wedding attending, massage getting, hair doing, makeup getting, antiquing and brunching.... I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Oh, and did I mention, I pushed a crowd of girls out of my way caught another bouquet?

With as much sleeping as I feel like i've been doing lately, I thought it fitting that I let you take a peek at what I keep at arm's length at my bedside table. 

1 || antique rosary
I'm catholic and my boyfriend has been attending RCIA classes. I think it is nice to have little reminders close to my bedside. One of these was a gift that my auntie had blessed by Pope Benedict. The other I found in Paris and was blessed by the arch bishop. These are very special pieces to me. 

2 || crystal ring holder
A gift from my mother, this Swarovski dish is the perfect place to put my rings before slipping into the sheets. 

3 || fresh cut flowers
Usually hand picked and from my boyfriend, I love having them bedside. There is nothing like waking up to the scent of fresh flowers. 

4 || sparkling water
A favorite of L's. With lime especially. 

5 || diptyque's baies
One of Diptyque's best fragrances. 

6 || latest fashion magazines
My most favorite are InStyle, Vogue and Elle. If my subscription were to ever run out, I don't know what I'd do. I have the digital app of course on the iPad, but there is nothing like the real thing. 

7 || lavender lotion
I have a hard time sleeping at times. I've heard lavender helps. I'll try anything as long as it is natural. 

8 || gilded lion
I try not to take myself too seriously. Gold painted children's toys take the stuffiness off. I like this lion. It represents my Leo-ness.

Find it here. It happens to be my current favorite colour. I notice it everywhere. I can't help it. Its become a sick obsession. I'll notice pops of the hue in different fabrics, the side of a decaying building or in a painting and instantly my heart will fall in love with said object. I love this colour. 

And, it just so happens, that the verdigris river is also the name of the river that my grandmother grew up on. And, it just so happens to be the name of my most favorite antique shop. Coincidence? I think not. I think I just might have found my colour soulmate. Serendipity? Absolutely.

With that being said, for date night last week, I wore this diesel dress out for dinner with L to Tamazul. I've had this dress for ages, but randomly saw a hint of the blue/green hue sticking out of my dress closet and had to slip it on. 

Bangle is a vintage jade bracelet from Singapore.

I'm the girliest of girls when it comes to date night. 
Nails, hair, outfit, you name it. I love getting dolled up. And date night is the perfect occasion. 

** Take a peek at Boho Gypsy for amazing shark tooth necklaces here. Would also go great against the mint tee.
