Gold Edge Painted Wedding Invitation, Haute off the Press

Gold Edge Painted Letterpress Wedding Invitation by DelphineSometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Case in point: this letterpress wedding invitation, typeset in black ink with no motif. Don’t call it plain, though! It has gorgeous (if I do say so myself) shiny gold edge painted sides. Letterpress edge painting is an extra touch that is always worth the extra effort.

Search for the Perfect Little White Dress

5 little white dresses for fallI’ve been invited to a wedding industry party with a “wear something white” dress code. Thus, my search for the perfect little WHITE dress. I need something that works for fall, must be comfortable, not too short, preferably with shoulders covered (I get chilly). And it has to be fashionable enough for the Big Apple. So far I’ve rounded up five little white dresses:

1. White dress with black embroidered bodice from Anthropologie  2. White belted tank dress from J. Crew   3. White long sleeve lace dress from Banana Republic  4. White and taupe striped long sleeve shift dress from H&M   5. White cap sleeve lace cocktail dress from H&M.

My Newest Treasure: Rock Crystal Necklace

Natural Rock Crystal Necklace by delphineA few weeks ago I went to the Gem Faire in Del Mar, California with my mom. Mom, among her many talents, is a jewelry designer. I scored a pile of natural crystals and Mom turned them into this gorgeous statement necklace. It’s made of real rock crystals, so it’s quite heavy, but totally worth the neck strain. Merci, Maman!

Blue and Silver Holiday Dessert Bar

Holiday Dessert Bar Buffet Styling by DelphineI had so much fun styling Jessica Davis‘s holiday party dessert bar. She thought I was crazy when I asked her to empty out her hutch so I could use it for displaying the dessert goodies (usually it’s full of baby blankets and other kids photography photo shoot props).

The candy bar had a pale blue, white and silver theme. Of course there aren’t too many foods out there that are blue, so most everything was white. We made an exception to the color palette rule for chocolate! I used lots of white candy dishes, bowls and plates to create different heights and layers. Then I threw in some turquoise, white and silver Christmas ornaments and glittery props. Everything shown is from Jessica, her fiancé, or my personal collection.

The party was a great success. Jessica raised well over $1,000 for OMO CHILD, and I am so happy to say that the raffle prizes were a hit. My son won the iPad! He hasn’t put it down since!

Wanted for the Studio: a comfortable office chair

comfortable office chair roundup for the studioI really need (okay, want) a new office chair. I sit at my computer all damn day and my butt is getting sore from sitting on a hard chair (I currently rock No. 7 in pale blue — a piece of plywood from Ikea). I started looking around for a new chair and HELLO, can you say crazypants prices? The new Eames Executive from DWR (No. 5) fits all my criteria except one. It is decidedly not cheap at just over $3k! And it’s not even leather!

I took a look at office supply stores but all I could find are ugly black chairs that look like they belong in a cubicle. Ick. I do like white, but am super concerned about a white chair getting disgustingly dirty in my studio, since it will get a ton of use. I am leaning toward a green, gray or yellow chair.

At the top of my list is No. 1, a replica of the famous Eames chair — gotta love that Pistachio color! But I’m a little nervous to commit. Will I like having arms on my chair? Will it be too soft? Will the light color get destroyed immediately by rogue Sharpie marks? What should I do????

Office chair roundup: /1/AG Management Chair in Pistachio from Advanced Interior Designs $219  /2/ Ripple Leather Chair in Ivory from Crate & Barrel $299  /3/ Freedom Task Chair from DWR $2,465 /4/ Haworth Very White Office Chair from Crate & Barrel $799 /5/ Eames Executive Chair from DWR $3,079  /6/Eames Aluminum Management Chair in Apple Green (LOVE) from DWR $1,889  /7/ Jules office chair from Ikea $39 /8/ White Grant Office Chair from World Market $229
