{ Dallas Shaw x Westfield, Garden State plaza }

May 6, 2016

Anyone free this weekend?
As you know I’ve been traveling a lot for some fun events, and this Saturday I’ll be at Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus NJ! From 11:00am-3:00pm, I’ll be in the concierge lounge doing mommy-and-me fashion illustrations!!! I’ve had such a nice time meeting all of you and hope you will stop by and say hello, talk fashion, and stick around for a quick rendering.

{ Dallas Shaw x Four Seasons Georges V Paris }

May 4, 2016

I love visiting luxury hotels so mid-trip we checked into a new location. One I’ve heard about in my dreams- The Four Seasons Georges V Paris.

We were greeted promptly by the warm hotel staff and hundreds of perfectly placed fresh flowers on the lobby floor. The hotel is located just off of the Champs-Élysées and about a mile from the Eiffel Tower (yes we could see it from our room.)

The room was bright, airy and decorated with 18th century furniture. Light blues and creams and what really stood out to me about this room and the hotel was that not a single design detail has been overlooked. Everything felt very Parisian- as if we were staying in a cozy French apartment of our own decorated in rich layered fabrics, ornate frames and thick, tassled trimming.

Oh and did I mention, the two sets of french doors in the room opened to a balcony that overlooked Paris. Possibly the best place to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of a trip.
My memories of this dream hotel will be of pianos, afternoon tea, high ceilings and sparkling chandeliers. And I can’t wait to return.


{ Dallas Shaw x Floral Nails }

May 3, 2016

The options are endless when it comes to a fun nail look. One I’ve recently picked up on are accent nails.

Nail wraps/decals are so simple to do at home, you can skip the trip to the salon. Spring has sprung, and if you’ve been following on my instagram you’ve seen flowers galore– in my hair, on my dresses, at events, and now my nails. If one or two floral nails are a little too daring, ease in with a sparkle statement nail! Here are a few of my favorites below.
