Faux Real Tho.... FAUX IS ALWAYS IN FASHION...the best faux fur for fall

If Jane knew she would go FAUX...but alas she is a huge reason fur coats are fashion

Some how animal fur became part of our fashion collective.  Somehow wearing the skin of an animal skinned alive and discarded in a pile while breathing became a picture of chicness and wealth...before it was indigenous humans in the arctic needed them for survival in minus 40f weather but suddenly fur took over fashion.  But we have great news...you may remember our faux fur post from last season and we have the same great news!  Faux Fur is soooooo back and SO good.  The only problem is...its hard to tell the difference between faux (animal/planet friendly) and real fur.

Thanks to fashion and animal lovers across the globe the demand for cruelty free fur is at an all time high!  SO big that Gucci declared to go fur free...stating that it was "Not Modern"...not to mention cruel and filled with darkness.  Now if we could only get the message to JLO, Kardashian Klan, Rihanna,  Kate Moss etc... But until then...WE can go faux and flawlessly.

As true animal, earth and fashion lovers... we LOVE and wear our faux furs with pride BUT some people may think they are real so we are thinking about going the Stella McCartney route and putting these small labels on them...tres chic no?  We found cool ones on Etsy...

So get out there and go faux...tell the fur and fashion industry that (real) fur is DEAD.  The more we lead the faster they follow so lets lead with our wallets and hearts....

Ceramics. Or is it pottery? Either way we LOVE it!

POTTERY!!!  Dream come true

POTTERY!!!  Dream come true

Like it or not the 70's are back baby!  From the fashion to the furniture that era is looking better than ever.  One of our favorite things that the 70s brought us (besides John Travolta and rollerskating) is ceramics!  Yes ceramics have been around for centuries but not since the 70s have they been so on display.  We can not get enough earthenware, ceramics, pottery you name it.  Some are obsessed with pillows...we are obsessed with pottery.   

Hi dream boat.  Jonathan Adler at the wheel.

Hi dream boat.  Jonathan Adler at the wheel.

Jonathan Adler (our dream man) was our gateway drug into the world of ceramics for display and now we can not stop!  Here are a few we are obsessed with right now...even Insta stalking the "throwers"...in a sweet way of course!

Lux Eros-  Mieke grew up with Dessa from Lux and I didn't know that until we mutually shared an obsession with her earthy meets punker style.  We are currently craving her pyramid studded line of home wares.

A litte Lux right there

Brian Giniewski- What is it about his delicious drips that has us all in a tizzy!?  We can not wait to get our paws on his tumblers for our coffee or succulents.

Essarai Ceramics- One look and you know EXACTLY why we are in love with him.  Crystals seemingly growing out of them?! Yes please... we will take 10.  Thanks.  He has a wait list so you can stalk him on Instagram you wait.  

Bridget Bodenham- Her Earthenware meets modern pots and vessels are basically the definition of us.  Its a very modern take on our favorite Earthenware look.  I have a few of her pieces and seriously gaze at them lovingly every day!  PS Anthropologie carries her line so ordering from the UK isn't necessary.

Right?  Succulents, cacti, plants, flowers never had it sooooooo good!  Which one is your favorite?

Mother's Day Gift Guide (from real moms)

All mommies love their bunnies...

All mommies love their bunnies...

She made you, she loves you, she created your world and she drives you crazy.  She would give you her heart, life and soul and she drives you bonkers.  She is your mama.  The one and only.  Once upon a time she was your everything, she was your goddess, your angel and your guardian. She loves you more than she loves herself....and she drives you up a wall.  She is your mommy.  She hasn't slept since you've been born and is a coffee addict now, she would gladly be sick instead of you and she makes you want to scream sometimes.  She is your mom....your best friend, your world maker and dream shaper.  

Exactly.

Exactly.

If you are lucky enough to have a mom (of any kind) show her your love and appreciation on the one day a year that was created to be all hers.  We curated a gift guide from us sleep derived, madly in love, hard working, shower lacking, lunch making, yell inducing, snuggle filled mamas to all of you and yours out there.

Bunny vibes all year long...

ICYDK we are also obsessed with Bunnycats....

ICYDK we are also obsessed with Bunnycats....

The best part about Easter (besides the egg hunts, the candy we "borrow" from our kids, and the feeling of spring in the air) is the abundance of rabbit themed things filling the isles and our virtual shopping carts.  (window shopping carts actually)

A poor lit shelfie taken at 5am in our rental that showcases our love of all things bunny.  Cake stand and jar both from IMM living.

It's no secret we love all things bunny related.  Considering the fact that we call most little ones, "bunnies" and there is seriously nothing cuter than bunny related decor and clothing.  Now we are not talking the kind we wore as kids from Kmart but the pop version...the "why is this cool but it is so cool" version.

Here are our top Not just for Easter bunny related goodies that last all year long-

one // two // three // four // five // six

one- Mrs Mighetto is beyond an obsession in our lives.  Her stunning art prints are ethereal yet dark.  We want to buy everything she makes

two- Our love affair with Kira Kids goes way back when I found her at an indy craft fair 7 years ago and now her collab with Miffy gets us all kinds of giddy

three- And heres Miffy.  The nightlight that makes us all kinds of crazy.  We need/want/crave this all day and night for the bunnies rooms but at $230 a pop we will keep it as a secret crazy crush

four- This Anthro knob is the perfect touch for your kids rooms/bathrooms to bring a bit of whimsy

five- Need a lil light in your life?  Loving this woodland bunny night light that would look cute on any shelf in your home

six- Seriously?  This bunny head cake stand is just amazing

Hsaio Ron Cheng we are and always will be obsessed with your art

Whether you Easter Bunny it or not these pieces bring a little whimsy into any home and wardrobe.  Have fun with your decor!
