Yesterday, after waking up at strange hours (3am and 5am) to do school work, nothing could reward a person better than watching a dear friend's guitar become a unique piece of playable artwork. In Channelside there is a gentleman who goes by the name of Manuel. He uses spray paint and everyday materials in order to create alarmingly fabulous pieces of art.  Here are the photos from our excursion.

Rope Necklaces



These necklaces are so alluring. 
I adore the mixture of rope and unusual array of stones used in the Proeza Schouler creation. 3.1 Philip Lim has another interesting take on the rope necklace concept. 


Ecstatic about these new earrings from Bebe. Snakes biting your earlobes in order to hold on? How neat.

Doo Ri: Fall 2011

Simplistic, billowy and minimal-twists. These are the words that come to my mind when I look at the designs created by the Doo Ri line. Love the maxi-dresses with fall season colors (always useful here in Florida when falls are usually quite warm). The Onesie looking gray design is quite intriguing. 

It's Beautiful Out

Been getting pretty beautiful here in Tampa, FL. Took these pictures a few weeks ago when it was just getting warm out. Everyday has been hitting right around 80 degrees.

FINALLY found the time to switch to another blog network! Although I have another blog (Simple LUXE.) I am very excited to add a new, more refined, blog to my daily Repertoire. Samantha's Garments is going to be a blog based on the same ideas and concepts as SimpleLUXE but show more consistent and inspiring posts. Please contact me about any questions!
