I’m in New York for Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week 2012 – so exciting!
I stumbled onto this site called Cutie Pie today and if I could convert pounds to dollars in my head more quickly, I could have spent my paycheck on this all adorable stuff. Check out the necklace with the birds on the cherry blossom branch – so pretty! And I LOVE the bee ring.

I’m sure this correlates with my obsession with feathered fashions these days, but as much as I resisted the Southwestern prints coming back in style, I’m now embracing it and have an eye on a few must-haves of my own. Living in the Southwest, Native American-inspired prints seem to have always been readily available, however until recently, the colors were more limited to reds, navy blue, turquoise and mustard yellows. Softer tones are now on-trend, and I’m loving the creams and soft camel combos, and the more subtle incorporation of the traditional hues.
Here are just a few on my ever-growing wish list:
Navajo Cascade Poncho from Alice + Olivia.
Theodora & Callum southwestern-print scarf from Neiman Marcus.
These are so pretty! Southwestern Navajo leather-printed pouches from Corium Handmade Accessories.
I’m so into feathers lately – and my fascination with them has come a long way from the construction paper and Elmer’s glue creations that I once used to showcase the stray feathers I’d find on the farm as a child.
Feathers are such a graceful accent to any outfit and add a touch of the Southwest, which I always love. Here are just a few of my faves!

Oooh… what I would have given to see this one in time for our company’s holiday party this year! Francesca black jersey sleeveless tank dress with feather trim from Alice + Olivia.
