Ladies, ladies, ladies. My sincerest apologies for the radio silence but I have been globetrotting, K? Can we forgive and forget? Well if you are having trouble granting impunity, insert shop 219. So I use this shop often for my clients because they have THE most unique pieces on the worldwide interweb. AND I happen to adore the shop's owner, Christine. She is such a boss. Such a boss that she is giving one lucky S+S reader a World's Away bar cart of their choosing. I am not even kidding y'all. No it's not April Fools and no I am not playing a cruel prank (although I would like to). One lucky S+S reader can choose one of the following chic barcarts in either a gold or silver finish. Ooooh and ahhhhhh.
I mean I know what you are thinking. Pinch you, right? Let's just call this Christmas in March, shall we? Let's enter.

Hi lovelies. Sorry I have been as MIA as MIA lately, but the girl has been traveling. I will be back. But in the meantime, I am airing out my dirty laundry over with Elizabeth at Little Black Door. I am sharing all of my beauty secrets and I mean ALL.
I am jet setting off to Vegas for my bestie Sam's bachelerotte party. Follow along on insta for ridiculous updates. Have a wonderful weekend. Love you. Absolutely mean it. XOXO

Happy Friday y'all. Seriously. We survived the blizzard here (10 inches by the by) and now I am ready for the weekend. Lucky us they are predicting more snow. Gag. So let's talk about something fun and festive that is on the horizon, Valentine's Day. I have to tell you, I am not a huge fan of this holiday. It is quite forced and Hallmark but I will indulge you. And there is no love that I would rather spend my Valentine's with than y'all! You know that. But just in case you out there are wondering what is on my mind for Valentine's Day, here she is.
Have a wonderful weekend my boos. What are y'all up to? Anything? Smooches. xoxo

Ok so I have the guiltiest of pleasures to admit. And honestly to confess, I feel like I need the iPhone emoticon with the monkey with his hands over his eyes to illustrate my embarrassment. Truly. Ok. Here it goes. My name is Lindsay Dress and I watch "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." There. Happy? If you are as guilty in this as I am, you will know that there is some pretty major interior design happening on the show, which is totally why I watch it...(insert awkward silence)
Finally someone put Kourtney Kardashian's home in InStyle, so all of you non show watchers (good for you) can get a glimpse of the super glam aesthetic she is putting off. Her home is designed by the amazing Jeff Andrews, who is now my newest design crush. And honestly, I never thought I would love black and white SO much. Dear Jeff, honey, baby love; you make classic black and white look edgy and new age. Seriously. Prepare to drool over the series of pictures. You are welcome.

So we are essentially snowed in here. The entire city was closed down yesterday and of course I cannot even take one day of working from home or being trapped. Bitch be stir crazy. Which lead me to some major online shopping, a la Waiting on Martha. Do y'all know it? If yes, great for you. If no, get it together people. Waiting on Martha has the punchiest home decor and gifts happening at this very moment. ANNNNNDDD they are offering 15% off of your entire order for S+S readers only! Use code S&S15 at check out, the offer ends on Monday February 10th at 12:00 AM EST. Get it all, get it fast. I couldn't resist a round up of all of my favorite things.

My darling little snow bunnies. Vat's up? So we are under a little thing called a "winter weather advisory" in these parts. I am talking, there is nothing on the ground but grand predictions about a Snowmageddon headed our way, so everyone has closed down EVERYTHING. I am talking errrthang. Where were these type of events when I was growing up? School closed off of a prediction and not actually the event of snow. Seriously rude.
So to counteract this ridiculously gloomy, frigid and bleh weather, I am talking punchy decor. Bright, light and airy, folks. I mean my house is full of color galore, and I really feel like each and every room really should have some sort of pop of color. Enter Adore Magazine. I recently came across their September edition (I know get my head out of the sand) and it was just what the doctor ordered by way of decor. Fun, bright, unique and eclectic. Truly folks, one colorful statement piece can go a long way.
So I figure out I need to practice a little bit of what I preach. Let's get our punch decor budget buy on.
Back to reality. Y'all stay safe and sound out there. Love you. Mean it.

Loveliest of ladies! How was your weekend? What's that you say? Never long enough? Amen to that. So before we get started, major thoughts and love to Stella today would be great. She has to get surgery today on her poor ear for the second time due to her getting in a dog fight. The poor thing wants to scrap, but she just can't. She is writing checks that she can't cash if you catch my drift.
Sooooo. Let's talk about this lovely little image that I came across below. So it is in the home of none other than Whitney Port. If you do not know who that is, you had more of a life than I did about 8 years ago when "The Hills" was on the air. She was on the cast of should have been Emmy nominated series. (Seriously people. Worst show to ever air on television.) Anyhow, the good thing that transpired out of that show was Whitney's unapologetically cool style. I mean check it out. Even her home is super chic.

So today I am pumping you people up, because that is my job. I came across this image the other day and instantly thought I was looking into the mirror. Why? Because this is how I see myself. A baby rocking it in oversized sunglasses and a one of a kind headpiece. She is doing this while taking a leisurely cruise on a boat adorned with fabulous pom pom trimmed curtains. I mean, why not? So, so chic. This baby doesn't give a shit and we shouldn't either. People love to hate and that is when you know you are really doing something extraordinary with your life. Do what you do and drown out the noise. Haters gonna hate. Those are my profound thoughts for Wednesday. Be a baby. On a boat. Be ridiculous.

I mean what is not to like about this girl? She's a ginger (like me). And ahem, her name is Lindsey (like me, only alternate spelling and I will not get into my personal preference of spelling because that can spark a heated debate). Lindsey Coral Harper is most definitely my design crush. I fully admit it. Her NYC apartment was most recently photographed by the biggest publications in the design world, House Beautiful and Elle Decor. Wow and wow. I put a conglomeration of both shoots together so you could see both Lindsey's fun collections of zebra and malachite accouterments. Brilliant.

What up, y'all? Did you have a fantastic weekend? Mine was predominately spent putting the final touches on my house for my photo shoot today. Whoop whoop! The wait is finally over for y'all. I am sure you were getting sick and tired of waiting on little me to get all of my ducks in a row on that one. Rest easy, it is all coming your way. Cross my heart.
So today we are having a chat on pillow arranging. I know this stumps some, but there is really no rhyme or reason. Keep it symmetrical or make it eclectic and mix it all up. When I am aiming for symmetry, I always like to add in a colored throw for the pillows to be mirrored around. Let's do this. One sofa, two different ways.
Too predictable for you? Ok let's keep you on your toes. How about tying it all together with being in the same color family but building off all different patterns? I am talking floral, polka dots, plaid and stripes. Yes it can be done and I just did it.
