vena cava

prepping for the spring 2010

2010 Runway

I have loved the designs by vena cava for a couple years now. The line is designed by Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock, the duo met at 17 in their native California before shipping off to Parsons. Three weeks after graduation they created a line of 12 looks together and the rest is history.
vena cava designs are very unique and you definitely feel special wearing them. Check out their current collection here.

Gift Guide- For the Modern Gal

Geometric Pillows
These pillow will add a fun punch to any sofa!

Mandarin Imperial Trellis Pillow- Etsy $65

Greek Key Pillow-Home Deco Direct $80

Williams Sonoma Home $40.

Avalisa’s Lively Wall Art

Loving these fun, kid oriented, stretched wall art and fine art prints. (not to say that some of their multi-colored, patterned prints, couldn’t go in an adult’s room too!) I think I want the purse print with the greek key... Get them here.

Square Lucite Tray

I LOVE this tray! What a great gift, you can monogram it and below are some of my favorite prints that can be used. How perfect would this look on a desk or to serve lemonade!? Get one here.


This is my idea of a sweatshirt! Looks so comfy and with the touch of metallic it is definitely one up on your average sweats. Get it here at Intermix.
AND it looks similar to Dree's below!

I see the Light


Splurge vs. Steal

Free People

The Dolce Vita platforms are good alternative to the lovely YSL pumps that are oh so cool. These, from Free People, come with a price point WAY more attractive at $168 vs. the $845 YSL platforms.

Runway to Real Way

I am really loving these infinity scarves / cowl neck scarves...from Burberry and Society for Rational Dress's runways to real ways...found on (green) (pink) and ann taylor stores. I can't decide which one I want!

Urban Shopping Bag...

I got the Urban Outfitters Holiday Catalog and these are the items in my shopping bag. I love that they are all fairly basic so you could really pair them with things you already have in your closet. The socks are great because if you get them in black and pair them with black pumps it gives the allusion of over the knee boots at a fraction of the cost! If I had to choose two it would def. be the sequin skirt and the necklace.
