{tech trendy} : Megan Adams Designs

{ via Daily Candy }

i have broken my last 4 iPhones within 5 days flat. 
that is a true track record. 
i am not graceful. or very responsible.  

so i love a good case when i see it.
(considering - i probably need to wrap my gadgets in 16 layers of bubble wrap to ensure any safety whatsoever)

Dallas textile designer Megan Adams has turned her original screen printed fabrics into bright, colorful accessories -
for iPhones, iPads, iPods, & portable speakers.
(side note : the cast of Bravo's Most Eligible Dallas tote these around...as they board their weekly crazy train)

Check out Megan's designs HERE
(she also has pillows, fabrics, clutches, etc)

Ruby Red obsession...get some.

see ya - "simple"...
you are getting kicked out by the
Excessive Accessory Overload train!!
{ ...choo choo... } 

I was like a kid in an ARM CANDY shop 
when I saw that Refinery29
had interviewed 20 of NYC's fashion elite -
to discuss this obsession of decorating their wrists in the most wonderful conglomoration of layered bangles, cuffs, old-school friendship bracelets, & humongous MAN watches
(shoot - some even add in a recent concert/festival armband for an added touch...)

Here are a few of my favorites ...
seriously, this is accessory heaven in my book.

I am a devout believer in piling on as many accessories that you can - more is More is MORE...is more -
in my book anyway.  

What do you think? Which look do you love most?

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!


Banana Republic :: Mad Men Collection

ladies & gents - the Mad Men mania continues...

Banana Republic's new collaborative collection debuted this week online and in select retail stores.

The sleek, mod 60's fashion pieces won't burn a hole in your wallet either - the 65 piece collection ranges from $45 - $250.




my style file :: i get it from my mama.

visiting my favorite person in the world this week - my mama!
and ...
my entire flowy summer ensemble is from HER closet...

happy hump day!


bashful , blush .

dreamy. girly. pretty.

these are typically my favorite words
when it comes to my personal fashion taste.

throw one of my grandma's crochet doilies
on me & i'm beyond happy.

i just can't help it.

so, i obviously went nuts over this stunning editorial featuring
Giorgio Armani's Fall Collection in InStyle's August edition.

Mr. Armani is a man after my own heart...sighhhh.

{ PS : the model is "Crazy, Stupid, Love" actress Analeigh Tipton - great movie ...she might even give Ryan Gosling a run for his money in the "gorgeous" category }

i love how the Q&A ends with Mr. Glam himself ...

When is a woman at her most beautiful?
" When she becomes aware of herself, untroubled by self-doubt
and uncertainty. My concept of style, which doesn't require you to be beautiful or famous, expects you to be
adventurous with elegance & grace. "
Giorgio Armani

i am lame. end of story.

once upon a time ...
i was a blogger.

as of lately -- yeah, not so much.
SHOOT. {i'm sorry x infinity?}
I've missed y'all!

i've been swamped with work &
I spent the month of July in the big ol' NYC.
i've traveled to the concrete jungle many times...
but it was so different & wonderful to be there
for an extended period of time.

country girl has officially fallen in love with the big apple.

enjoy a few pics i took ...
as my super lame "virtual apology via eye candy".

 { love her } 

 { love her too ... good friends make life grand. }

"One hand in the air for the big city.
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty."
