Listening Party // Newest Album from Florence + The Machine


It is no secret that I love this band. This music is so inspiring to me. I think Florence Welch has amazing talent as a writer and her voice is unbelieveable. She records her own music as well. This band has a way of reaching into your chest and stirring your soul. They're so incredibly talented. I have had the new album Ceremonials on repeat. I wanted to share a listen with you all. Turn up the volume and enjoy this beautiful piece of work. I hope it inspires you as it does me.

Outfit // My Gypsy Loving Heart


Over this last week I have been so inspired by gypsy style and 20s style. I love the textures, the adorned hair, and the whimsy of it. It's so alluring. It's very different from my usual style. But very fun. It was a beautiful day too. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Find of the Week : 1940s Luggage Case


Yesterday I thought I'd take an adventure through my favorite antique store while in Mobile to visit my family for Thanksgiving. There are many here that I love but Mary Parker Antiques is one of those that you always find something amazing. From the moment you walk in the door there's treasure piled everywhere. It's just a sea of things to dig through. I always walk slowly through the bottom floor with such anticipation for whats upstairs. The upper floor is where you find the clothing boutique and books and old metal hospital beds. I found some shoes and an old 30s hat and then as I turned the corner to go back downstairs I saw this suitcase sitting on the stairwell. It was so stunning and beckoning. I stopped on the stairs in awe for a few moments and just starred. It was like I had seen something other-worldly and was afraid to approach. Then I smiled and walked over to touch it and make sure it was real. In my research so far all I can find is that this Tommy Travleler luggage was most likely made in the 40s even though it seems a bit older. Looks like it should be in the prohibition era filled with whiskey bottles, lace, gorgeous silk dresses, and the stockings of a dangerous woman. Ha I absolutely love it! I don't think I can part with this one but I wanted you to see it.

There are so many amazing things in the world to appreciate and delight in. I hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday. Here are some more beautiful feathered treasures to brighten your day.

Friday Favorites: Photo Booth Party


Last night I attended a launch party for ShopBirmingham.com. It was held at our local brewery, Good People Brewing Company. There was plenty of delicious beer, food, and entertainment. The Alabama Shakes played an amazing show. You're sure to be hearing much about them soon. Those kids rocked the house. Check them out here. My personal favorite was the photobooth they set up. We had a little too much fun. We could've played there all night. Luckily for all of us photo booths are becoming super popular for parties and weddings. There are even several online tutorials on how to make your own. Give it a try at your next party or event. Did you know that photo booths were invented in 1925? I was so excited to find out. I find vintage photos so inspiring. Check out these great snapshots....Got any of your own? I'd love to see.
