Womanista Decor: Buying Art that Speaks to You

Susie Hamilton's "White Beach 5" currently hangs in our dining room

Womanista Decor: A Table for Two

Valentines Day tablescape

This Valentine’s Day my husband and I will actually be in the same city (hooray!) so we’ve decided to have a low-key celebration at home. Sometimes having a little quiet time together is better than braving the crowds, the pre-fixe menus, and the forced romance on Valentine’s Day. But even though we are staying in, […]

Womanista Inspiration: Gold Dust Woman

Alexandre Vauthier A:W 2012

I’ve had the pleasure of spending the past few days in the presence of the original “Gold Dust Woman”, Ms. Stevie Nicks (Yes, that’s a total name drop! but seriously…) As a style icon, Stevie represents everything glam about the ’70s & the glittering boho-chic fabulousness of that era. Lately I’m loving all things gilded, […]
