Bird Tribal Cuff!!!

Obviously to get something almost one of a kind it's great to go vintage or handmade..... It doesn't guarantee it was the only one made but chances are there are few and far between.  It gives you something original and all its own to your style!!!  I love searching for pieces not mass produced... you can go anywhere on Etsy, Ebay or flea markets... you name it.  Today on Etsy as it is a rainy day I saw this bird cuff.  Birds are everywhere but they all seem to resemble each other!!! sparrows everywhere! I saw this and thought well that is authentic!!!  There are only 9 available so you wont be the only one to have it BUT it is still pretty rare!!!

SEE YA red heart shaped "Lolita" glasses

Not just the red Lolita glasses anymore, these are so cute even I would wear them! They are just adorable and each pair is different due to the variations of wood they use! I love that they are handcrafted in Tennessee which means MADE IN THE USA!!!!!

Vintage Asian Advertisements on your walls!!!

One thing I love are vintage ad's of any kind!!!  They really took the time to make them catchy and fun and grab people to buy, eat or vacation anywhere!!!  The real posters are kinda expensive and honestly the repro's are just as good.... 
A great twist to your home is to add some old vintage asian ad's to your wall!  They are so colorful and add a twist to any home.... I LOVE THEM AND HAVE SOME MYSELF!!!!  Frame them in a simple frame and they will look terrific..... here are some that I think are great !!!!  I found this great website that sells them for super cheap and are just awesome!!! you can't go wrong!!!
go to

Pick out the ones for you and put them up!!!!

CUTE Dishtowels at Anthropologie

I love to change my kitchen towels, it makes such a difference to change per season and changes everything just a little bit.  I have actually posted about it before.  At Anthropologie, these dishtowels of course stood out to me!!!! They may not be for everyone but being a horse girl myself they are adorbs!!! Anthropologie really does have such a cute selection... if these are not for you there are plenty to choose from.

Was I Native American????

I have an obsession with anything native american inspired... I think it is because I went to a psychic once that said I was Native American in my last 3 lives and my spirit animal is the wolf!  She told me I love the land and dogs... Well that is true!!!! SHE MUST BE RIGHT!!!!

In 1976 I came back as a german, greek, italian white girl from CT.... HUH?  Well..... I was in Indian Guides.. Indian Princess' and my name was little "little cloud." But I feel like my name should be "dances with wolves!"

Being drawn to all native american design here are some native American inspired things I JUST LOVE!!!!!

I found a great place named "AK Vintage".  A lot of the designs are native american inspired. The designer is from Portland, OR and handcrafts everything in the USA! woo hoo !!!!  Totally check it out!!!!

I adore this wall paper and I can not wait to put it somewhere in my apt.

Pendelton makes the best wool blankets.. They come in king, queen, twin and crib.  The blankets are amazing, the colors and patterns, it is hard to choose!! I find this website to have the best selection. Go to Indian

I wear these moccasins everyday, I simply can't live without them. I have the "El Paso's and just love the design on the toe.  They are the best!

Everything is better in DENIM!

I am obsessed with denim, I wear it all the time and have been known to wear jeans to everything... it's just my thing, I have not worn a pair of pants/trousers in so long!!! Denim on Denim is my fave and thank GAWD it's the style because now I'm in! What's it called??? the "canadian tux" well I am into it! Since Denim is my fave I am thinking outside the box and want a denim dress... I saw this one and LOVED IT...

This picture is small but I could not get a bigger one! This is a must have for spring summer, pair it with moc's, cute flats, sandals or booties.  If it is cooler you can wear tights and a sweater... TOTALLY ADORABLE!!!!

BEST BOOT for me Rain or Snow!!!

So I split time between Production Designing in NYC and then running a horse farm in Connecticut.  I NEED BOOTS all the time... when it snows or rains in NYC & on the farm... I have had a million pairs and I have narrowed down to what my favorite one is ..........3........2.........1............

 L.L. Beans 100th anniversary Maine hunting shoe!
Love these, and they are so cute and traditional! I wear them in the rain or snow. I don't think anyone can go wrong with duck boots no matter what. They look great with anything and are truly waterproof. They don't have any lining so i throw a great pair of smart wool socks to keep my feet warm!!  I love the height of them....They hold true to tradition and are the best. $139 is so reasonable for such a wonderful boot.. and it is designed to look just like the first hunting boot they made!!!

I needed a new mascara so at CVS I got my ole faithful Mabelline Great Lash in Very Black.... Well to my surprise the next morning As I opened it up it was TEAL!!!! "Teal Appeal" to be exact!  I thought oh great green mascara.... Well needless to say I gave it a whirl!  I went to go meet some friends and everyone said "wow, your eyes are so bright is that blue mascara?"..... I corrected them and said "teal appeal" ha ha ha!  Well I got so many complements on how bright my eyes have been I went and bought the royal blue too!  Same reaction with that color "elke, your eyes look so bright"!!!!  See ya very black and hello teal appeal and royal blue!  I looked it up online and it said that those 2 colors actually do brighten up brown eyes and are a great colors for us brown eyed girls... So go out and try it and let me know what you think! I've had rave reviews!!!!!

i have not tried the "pop up purple" or the "go go green"
but I might!!!!

you can get it anywhere!!! go try it! 
PS tried to take a pic of my eye with it  but it was not cute!

These are a few of my favorite things... from IKEA!

My three favorite things at IKEA are their, cowhide rugs, sheepskins and flokati rugs!  Everywhere you go if you look for these they are so so expensive... If you come to NYC and walk into ABC carpet and home you can see these three things for astronomical prices that only Athena Onassis can buy!  At ikea you get virtually the same thing for nothing! 
My mom is from Germany and I grew up with antlers, hides/ skins, cow bells that were actually on her family's cows, you name it, it was all very animal-y, rustic and cool.  A lot of people don't agree with this stuff but as much as I want to be against it I just LOVE it and reminds me of my mom and my alpine roots!

These three items will make any home a little more rustic and cozy.. I love the look of and have all three!

 "Koldby" Cowhide rug $199.00! 
it comes in brown and white and black and white! not one is alike (obvi).....
"Rens" Sheepskin $29.99

"Flokati" rug $79.99

an art print for your cutie pie!

Valentines Day is coming and to those who have someone to celebrate it with here is a GREAT gift.

Listen, depending on how stable your relationship is, I mean if you are 1 month in to one I am not sure this will help, it might scare and scaring is for Halloween!  But for those that are solid this one is for you!!!

artist: Dylan Fareed ... available at

Go get it for your cutie pie!

BEST JEANS by Madewell

Who doesn't love a great pair of jeans! Every time there is a pair I love I can't seem to find them anymore and or there is a better pair that comes along... I always go for ankle length, they just look better with booties or high tops.  With winter it means your socks can show with low topish shoes, but that to me is cute! I typically go for jeans that are not "worn" meaning white in the thigh and the back of the thigh... that looks weird and these just have the slightest bit ( this picture makes it look like a lot but I have them and they are not that bad)!  They are not too low more of a mid-rise so no "I see london i see france" when you bend down! they come in different washes too! All around great fit and a great jean.. go get em!

Madewell Skinny Skinny Ankle Jean!

Wear FAIRISLE it's winter!

In NYC right this second it is like 12 degrees F.  It is faaaaa-reeezing. But as we all know you have to dress for the cold! I love this sweater from TOPSHOP!  To me like vermont and nyc got married and this is the fairisle sweater that came out!!!!wear it on the slopes or on the streets!

Pamela Love Jewelry

Recently I found this jewelry designer Pamela Love while out and about! I saw this ring and want it so bad, but I have to save for it! When I came home I went on the website and found more things I fell in love with... Here are some of her designs that are pretty fresh! She is a local New Yorker and makes her stuff in Brooklyn all by hand !

Southwestern Cuff

Chevron Rings.. these are what caught my eye!!!
check out all her stuff at!

leopard shoes? me?

So everyone needs a little leopard in their wardrobe... I have none!!!!!!!! Most of the time I feel I  "don't have it" to wear super leopard shoes.. I always love them on people BUT once I try on booties or flats or whatever I just can't do it.

I have been dying for something cute and something likable but to no avail!  Walking in the meat packing the other day there was a cute skater-y/surf-y girl wearing these leopard Van's... NOW that is something that can be pulled off by ME!

VAN'S "authentic lo-pro" kicks are in canvas with a black midsole. Not for nothing they're dope.

St. Anthony, St. Anthony help me find the perfect BOOTIE!!!!

Bootie's EVERYWHERE!  
I had a vision of my perfect shoe! From trying on Rachel Comey's, Madewell"s, Rag and Bone's, Steve Madden's and a million others.. I would just HEM and HAW over the ones I tried and then never commit and still BOOTIE-LESS!!!!!!!
I needed an everyday bootie... a heel that wasn't too high, a toe that was not too pointy or too round and not 500 bucks..... OHHHH my criteria!!!! The search has been on over a year!!!!  These were even the first ones I tried on... I, FINALLY ..... FOUND THEM! 

The price, heel height, toe shape and colors are PERFECT! I have them in Black and Putty and I can't live without them, they go with everything! They are also super super comfortable!! Definitely the best bootie of the bunches!!!

My new Fragrance LE LABO

I am super picky about perfume! I don't like too floral, too sweet or too musky!!! It's hard to find a balance of all that makes a nice subtle smell! A friend of mine always smelt just right and I had to ask her what she was wearing... and TAH DA I found my new fave.

Its called LE LABO, and they have 10 amazing fragrances... my favorite is the Bergamote 22.

Each Fragrance is made to order so it is fresh and at it's best.  I think that is just awesome!

The cutest thing is on the bottle once made to order they put your name the bottle ! They made it just for you!!!! It also has the date it was made and who made it for you at the store.  I think it is so great to support something so carefully made in the USA and by hand.  It also smells divine!
