:o) Jewell's Picks & Pics: Dante Beatrix (o:

You've seen Dante Beatrix before. Could anything be more perfect? But unless they start designing for Target, there's no chance I'll be getting one of these bags anytime soon. There's always Ebay.

= R. Nichols =

Check out these cute tote bags at R. Nichols. It doesn't look as if the bumblebee tote is available anymore on the site, although I did find a link to buy a set including it.

Here are some of my favorites of his newer stationery sets.

* Easy Glitz *

Kinda obsessed with J.Crew. Especially the whole dressy-tee-with-chunky-jewelry look. In some ways easy to pull off, in some ways not. I'll do another post about how to get the look for less.

{ A Summer Wedding }

The little sister of one of my very best friends just got married, and I fell in love with her cake! Created by Anne's Cake Creations, the black damask-inspired pattern over white fondant is so cool on the square-tiered structure. I've really never seen a cake like it. She continued the theme of black-and-white patterns highlighted by punchy pinks throughout the entire event. I also must say that I really love weddings where people put their money where it counts, being playful and creative (love the cotton candy wagon). Keeping things simple, colorful and fun lets the focus stay where it should: on the bride and groom. Congratulations, Chelsea!

~ Turtle Papers of Seattle ~

I just stumbled upon something pretty fabulous today: Another great indie paper source called Turtle Papers. I feel a kinship with it's creator, as she is also a Seattle-based shop owner with a toddler the same age as mine. Her papers are not just stunningly beautiful, but practical: get personalized stationery, calendars, book plates, and even fashionable baby tees. Best of luck to her very magnificent company!

[ Hurley Tees ]

At the zoo last week it seemed every time I saw someone with a very cool t shirt on it was a Hurley shirt. In my obsessive search to find the same ones online, I ran into some others, but not the same that I saw. Sigh.
