So You Think You Can Decorate

So you think you can decorate? Prove it! On Monday, Thomas Lavin will be launching a fun Pinterest contest where you’ll get to show off your decorating prowess. Whoever designs the best board will win a fab prize!

Along with superstar designer Jeff Andrews (who designs for the Kardashians!) and the darling and talented Dee Murphy, I’ll be putting on my judging cap (meet the judges here).

And you better believe I’m excited to literally put on my judging cap, Kelly Wearstler-style. (Remember Kelly’s fab turbans and ensembles when she was a Top Design judge? Bravo, please bring that back…). Dee and I will even be showing you how to make a turban, in case you feel like putting on your judging cap too — or just feel like looking uber chic this summer as you drive your convertible up the PCH. I might just have to crimp my hair too…

More details to come on Monday, but get those design juices flowing. Until then…See ya later, decorators! (Okay, I might need a catch-phrase of my own. Any ideas?)

Sweet Colorblocking + A Lulu’s Giveaway

Since we could all use a sweet treat right about now, here’s a fun shoot I did for Lulu’s showing three ways to wear a colorblock dress {in ice creamy hues} on the streets of Beverly Hills, plus a fun giveaway so you can scoop up a dress of your own for creating sweet memories this spring.

Colorblocking tends to be done in bold hues, but I love the softer pastel colors and slightly vintage cut of this ice cream-hued dress.

I simply added a few Golightly Girl accessories to sweeten the look even further, such as this Kristin Perry headpiece that looks like Holly Golightly’s tiara in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

Classic shades and swingy earrings and I was set for Breakfast at Sprinkles with my fellow Sprinklettes.

You can check out Good Bad and Fab and I Heart Vintage Couture for more ideas on how to style a colorblock dress.

I couldn’t resist finishing the look with mint pumps, a hot pink quilted clutch, a statement bracelet and cocktail ring, and of course, a Sprinkles Ice Cream cone.

The bad news is it looks like this exact colorblock dress has already sold out, but the good news is you can win a $100 Lulu’s giftcard to buy whatever your heart desires.

{And there’s a very similar colorblock dress in citrus hues that’s just as cute — in fact, I might need to scoop it up as I need more Vitamin C in my diet. Just click here and look under Dresses —  Color Block.}
