...I am a tad bit obsessed with the work of London-based ulala. I've noticed I post an awful lot of their products on here, but oh well- they're just too lovely. Like these collars. I want a different one for every one of my outfits. ($27)
After finding a gorgeous antique couch alongside a busy street for free (and convincing a friend of a friend to help me get it home), I have had to move some furniture around in my living room. Once, this began, I have started trying to come up with a new look for the room itself, which means browsing through some favorite sites for inspiration. Here are eleven of my faves- let the redecorating begin!

...to inspire you over the weekend. I must apologize for a rather slow week here. With the transition of seasons, I am seeking new inspiration and undiscovered finds. If you have some links to share, now would be the time. Have an absolutely splendid weekend!

Let me tell you something: I love a dapper gentleman. In today's day and age, I find that they are few and far between, so when I spot one with an eye for style, I swoon a bit. I truly appreciate a man who will take time with his appearance and let a bit of his personality show through his style choices. Thank goodness for street style websites for giving us all a peek at these men around the world.

Oh, how I am glad the weekend is here. It's been a rough and tiring week. I'm looking forward to a wedding, picture-taking, my weekly work here, and a barbeque with good people. I wish you all a good one!
