I love discovering smaller shoe designers. Diana Broussard worked for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Gucci before starting her own line in 2001.

I’m working on breaking in these heels; it’s hard to tell, but the entire bottom of the shoe is carved out of a dark wood. Since there’s no flexibility, they take awhile to get used to! Luckily, the high back keeps them from slipping around. They’re a deep metallic pewter color but as they scuff, there’s a bright silver underneath!

What I wore:

Bow top, Forever 21
Jeans, Kill City
Watch, Nixon
Heels, Diana Broussard

I’m still hangin’ out in the sunny desert and loving it. As you can see, the novelty of taking pictures next to really tall cactuses (or cacti) hasn’t quite worn off yet!

Fornasetti

Fornasetti is by far one of my favorite designers of plates and furnishings. Sculptor and painter Piero Fornasetti lived mostly in Milan and created an astonishing 11,000 items during his lifetime.

His plate designs are probably the most famous part of the Fornasetti empire. Nearly all of them have an eerily similar appearance. The face featured on most of the designs belonged to an opera singer named Lina Cavalieri. Fornasetti reportedly found her face in a 19th century magazine and used variations of it on over 350 plate designs!

You can find out more about Fornasetti on the official website and purchase items on Moss Online, Unica Home and Couture Lab.

Hello from sunny Phoenix! Wish you were here! I’ve been doing a little after Christmas shopping and soaking up the sun. I’ve had my Chloe boots for a few weeks, but this is the first time I’ve gotten to wear them since we had two solid weeks of snow and ice in Portland!
