January 2012The Soph-isticate: January 2012


Je suis jalouse

I love the concept behind this film for Jalouse magazine (okay, so maybe I'm just a little nostalgic for France). Watch and dream.


TEXTILE Elizabeth and James

Grab your sunnies! The TEXTILE Elizabeth and James Spring/Summer 2012 collection has a delectable pastel, sherbet-like palette. I love the simplicity of the tennis shoes paired with basics in unexpected hues. It looks so easy and summery, perfect for a California girl. All model Abby Brothers needs is a skateboard and she's ready to hit Venice Beach.

Speaking of the Golden State, it's a little chillier here than I was anticipating. However, I can't complain, as right after I left Seattle, my dad sent me photos of the first snowfall of the season. I have to admit, I am maybe one in a million who prays for snow; maybe it's the little girl in me, but I don't think I will ever tire of it.

Drift Away

Photobucket Photobucket Four more days and I'll be back in beautiful California! It's so dreary in the Northwest right now that I can't help but dream about palm trees and bright colors. Vivid ikat prints and geometrical patterns are really inspiring me right now, though I look over at my closet and it is both monochromatic and grayscale. I suppose I'm still stuck in the Parisian mindset. Although this rain isn't helping much either...

(The man's shirt, which I am kind of in love with and can't stop thinking about, is from Etsy store CREATIVENATIIVE.)
