inspirations for the week all found a this little blog

denim bandwagon

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I couldn't help be apart of the denim bandwagon that has taken over lately. I remember the sad day many years ago that people told me to stop wearing my denim jacket and pack it away. Pretty sure I gave it away but found myself ready to try the look again recently. I really like it with bright colours and maybe some pattern. I didn't get a good picture of the bottoms of this outfit but plan to soon as they will be added to della nonna shortly. 

Have a wild wednesday,

high and low

Thursday, June 21, 2012

 available here

I love the 50s feel to this dress(although it is vintage, it's not from the 1950s). The frills and of course the cut also make it simply beautiful. I wasn't crazy about the dress though until I saw it on this lovely lady who modelled it for me. Anyways, just wanted to share this dress and say that it is for sale on della nonna on the above link. 

Have a thrifty thursday,

in love with elbow patches

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

I found this wonderful jacket here with these cute elbow patches and new I had to add it to the shop immediately as it is way to cute to stay in any closet or box any longer. Go check it out here.

Have a tasteful tuesday,

bright and bold

Monday, June 18, 2012

this dress is bright bold and official for sale on the shop! Hurrah! The Velvet 80s belt will also be shortly. Once I figure out all of this listing stuff on etsy.

have a meaningful monday,

comfortably smart

Sunday, June 17, 2012

These pants looked so adorable on my model, Brooklyn. They are full length(a petite full length I should add) but I preferred the look cuffed. They are a perfect blend of dress and casual. 
The blue and white gingham top will also be available on della nonna shortly.  

Have a simple Sunday,

this dress

Friday, June 15, 2012

Not to much I need to say for this dress. I speaks for itself. Beautiful and timeless could some it up. Or maybe I'll just leave a fill in the blank. So here it is - before it gets put up on della nonna. 

have a fancy friday,

Cotton Candy Silk

Thursday, June 14, 2012

I found the most adorable little shop yesterday called La Vie Lente! It means the slows life(I will definitely talk about it more later). I bought this little message in a bottle necklace and I really love it. It is the only thing on this outfit that will not be for sale. Both the shoes and shorts were bought a while ago in hopes of wearing more often. You know how it works though. The blouse is nothing fancy but I do so love the cotton candy pink. And the silk of course!

Have a Thoughtful Thursday,

Buttons and Layers and Edges Oh My!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

I am so in love with this dress. The bottom has three layers but between all of the edges - you cannot distinguish where they begin. That right there add character to the dress and then you turn it around, and there are buttons and peep holes more layers - OH MY! It actually has belt loops and I left them on in case someone would like to use a belt with it. Can't wait to find a new home for lovely piece/


I have to say how excited I was today to get to shoot two beautiful ladies...
the lovely models - Brooklyn and Julia
I love the idea of having a variety of of people modelling the clothing (short, tall, curvy, flat, dark, light etc) 

The rest of the pictures I took today will be posted through out the week. Like an outfit a day maybe! 

Lucy the cat wanted to model as well 

Have a terrific Tuesday!

flowers and rain

Monday, June 11, 2012

ahh... so much rain lately that I had to make a little pedestal for myself to get these pictures. 
Unfortunately I was in a rush and did not get proper detailing of these pants. They are so cute! They're super high and have an embroidered waistline. In a way they have circus-y look to them... I dunno! And these shoes are my favourite. Both will be added to Della Nonna shortly. 

also wearing: forever 21 top

... on the positive side of this rain - the flowers and greenery are just lovely!

have a marvellous monday,

sail away

Thursday, June 7, 2012

This little top make me want to just sail away. As if a simple striped sweater weren't enough... along comes the most adorable collar and, well... I will say no more. I'll be doing mini posts of clothes that will be coming available through out this week. So in no time at all this cute sweater can sail away with you.

also wearing: Kismet boater hat, H&M skirt

Have a happy Thursday,

oh camera!

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

here's the thing: I am not big into taking picture of myself in mirrors so this maybe a first time thing! I was just too excited after buying my first dslr camera this afternoon. It is my first REAL camera and I am so pumped to begin to learn to use it. I've been collecting items for the shop over the past couple months(I decided to wait to open it until there is a decent amount). The hard part is taking pictures when there is no camera. So, with the new camera, hopefully more posts and the grande opening of della nonna will be here shortly. Stay tuned.

Have a happy day, April
