Winter Whites

Yes, Virginia, you can wear white after labor day. And I think these outfits from Club Monaco prove it. 

Or how about J.Crew? 

Fall 2012 also saw lots of white on the runway from designers like Philip Lim and Tibi. 

I love breaking the rules so I know I'll be all over some white outfits this winter. Labor day, shmabor day! 

How will you wear white this winter?



It's the Freakin' Weekend!

You're welcome for the bad 2000s rap throwback. 

I'm off to Helen for the weekend for some zombie bachelorette party badass-ness. So if you're out in Helen for Oktoberfest and you see a group of girls dressed as zombie bridesmaids, odds are I'm one of them! Pics coming soon ;)

Happy Friday, lovelies! Enjoy it!

A Very Glamorous Halloween

Bittersweet Pumpkin Centerpiece

Proof that it is possible to decorate for Halloween on a budget without looking like you bought all your decorations from WalMart or the Dollar Tree! 

It's as easy as printing out a spooky skeleton or bat and popping it into an antique frame, or wrapping some black lace around white candles.

Even just painting pumpkins white and adding some fall leaves makes such a statement without spending a lot. And my favorite.. that skull pillow cover is only $35 from Zara Home! 

Some of my favorite glamorous Halloween decorations... 

Skull Candle / Zara Home
Gold Gourd / Crate & Barrel
Clock / Z Gallerie
Skeleton Taper Candles / Z Gallerie (on sale!)
Pheromone Wall Art / West Elm
Lanterns / Target
Tea Pot / Zara Holmes

Millie Rebel

Big changes around here lately! On Saturday, I became a puppy mom to little Miss Millie Rebel.

She's an 8 week old rescue, half German Shepherd and half black lab, and 100% the sweetest dog I've ever known. She just wants to cuddle and be held all the time. She's been mine for two days now but I'm already in love with her!

Seriously, just look at those eyes. And those paws. So precious.

This is how she slept for about two hours when I brought her to a bonfire Saturday night. Her black fur makes it pretty much impossible to see her in the dark, which made for one nervous mama. Please excuse the too-big men's NorthFace jacket - it ended up being a lot colder than expected so I had to borrow whatever I could find! 

She's such a cuddle bug. It's cute now, but I'm not sure how cute it'll be when she's full grown and 80+ lbs!

Today was my first time leaving her home alone while I'm at work, and she was NOT happy about it.

If anyone has tips on how to get her not to cry when I leave, PLEASE PLEASE please share!

Chels and Millie


C'est Vendredi...



Grâce à dieu! 

Hope you have a lovely, lovely weekend my dears. 



Bah da bah bah bah

...I'm lovin it! (Yes, that was a McD reference, and no, I don't actually eat fast food. I just thought it was catchy. Don't judge)

Anyways, I am loving this divine Paris apartment. Hope you enjoy as well!


Happy Hump Day!

W2WW will be back next week. Stay tuned for some exciting posts ;)

Recent Findings

Readers, meet Anna-Wili Highfield. Like all the artists I show on my blog, she is out-of-this-world, unbelievably talented.


Her paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper that is painted and sewn together. Seriously? So talented and creative it blows my mind. 


I would love to see one of her sculptures in person, I can only imagine the depth and detail that she puts into her work. 


She has created pieces for companies such as Anthropologie, Hermes and Carla Zampatti. 


Every sculptures has a very unique vibe and personality. 


The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create forms reminiscent of line drawings.


As always, I highly encourage you to check out more of her work on her website

What Dreams Are Made Of

This bedroom... holy geez...

This bedroom is what my dreams are made of. It's pretty much like someone went into my brain, compiled everything I want and need in a bedroom space, and turned it into real life.

There are so many dreamy things here, I don't even know where to begin.. the blanket is divine, the ikat curtains are heaven, the mercury glass lamps are sheer perfection.. do I need to go on?

If I ever had a room like this, you guys would have to pull me out kicking and screaming if you ever wanted me to be a productive member of society again. That's how much I love this room.

Amber Interiors.. Thank you for providing me with so much inspiration! You're a decor genius.
