A Very Pink Christmas

When we were in San Francisco this past week, I fell in love with this pink Christmas tree. It’s like the flamingo version of a Christmas tree! It broke my heart not to be able to bring it back home with us (it didn’t fit in my carry-on and it was an ouch-inducing $185). So, the minute we got back to LA, I started to search eBay to see what I could find…and lo and behold, the very same pink feather Christmas tree starting at just $30! I instantly added it to my Vintage Christmas collection (cross your fingers that I win it!).

My proclivity for all things vintage, unique and one-of-a-kind is no secret. In fact, it’s one big fat bold reason I L-O-V-E Palm Springs (the vintage shopping is insane). But when I want to expand my treasure-hunting horizons beyond my beloved desert, I like to able to search the world all from one spot (my couch!) by browsing the big fat interwebs.

how to style a bart cart; kelly golightly's house

Fall always makes me want to nest. You too? Here are a few small vignettes around our apartment that I snapped today that are making me smile. It’s really the little things, isn’t it?

Beautiful roses, given to me by the lovely people at Glade for hosting the Emmy’s viewing party, sprucing up my vintage bar cart.


Striped straws make any drink more fun, don’t you think, even if they do get soggy.

Audrey, my new Prada glasses I couldn’t resist getting after hosting an event at ILORI, on a favorite cake plate (that I just knocked off of the table and broke as I typed this — thankfully there are more at World Market — oy!) and a lion-adorned clutch from Nila Anthony that came as a surprise in the mail yesterday (and which I will probably accidentally spill red wine on tonight).


This little piggy…and some lovely handwritten notes I received this week.


Snail mail is the best, isn’t it?


Do you have any favorite little vignettes, moments or pieces around your house that make you smile?

Chairish the Pre-Loved Decor


I love shopping for vintage furniture and decor, and my favorite places to do just that are spots like Past Perfect in San Francisco, which features multiple different sellers under one roof (in individual booths or mini-showrooms in the store), but where the checkout process goes through one person.

So when Chairish popped onto the scene — the new home decor site that’s like the love child between 1stdibs and Craigslist — I was a happy girl.
