What’s in a Name?

I am admittedly new to flickr…and not sure how I feel about posting my own photos {I am definitely NOT a photographer…though I REALLY wish I was!} but I do definitely enjoy finding new faves. Just thought I would share some of them with you. You can visit the original photographers by going to my flickr favorites page.

Do you see a theme in my faves? How would you label it? {obvi, I am obsessed with labeling styles.}



How-To: Celebworthy & Everyday

by Kate Franco on March 22, 2010 · 4 comments

Well loves, this was supposed to be last Monday’s post…and it would have been more current and appropriate then…but I was sick. I’ve taken some of my fave looks from the Oscars and matched them to related pieces that us “little people” can afford.


  1. Made of Me Watercolor Floral Scarf, Nordstrom, $38
  2. Watercolor Tank, Banana Republic, $69.50
  3. Johnny Martin Watercolor Chiffon Dress, $15 Dollar Store, $15

To get this look try a watercolor print for soft and ethereal look. Let the watercolor stand out by keeping the jewelry minimal and simple. The color palette of the dress isn’t quite what I was going for…but I couldn’t resist because it was only $15. Can you believe that?! The nice part is that all of these pieces are available in multiple colors, so you can choose the palette that works best for you. 🙂

And, thanks for all the well-wishes. I am feeling sooooo much better!

And pilaf, yum} Watched both of these: Factory Girl and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Two style icons in one day! Edie Sedgwick and Audrey Hepburn are both completely mesmerizing in completely different ways. Incredible. […]
