A New Venture: Crowns by 5th & Farmer

Hi Dolls!

As a brand new, start up blog I don’t have much of a following to disappoint with this news. However, I wanted to let you all know that my blogging endeavor will be put on hold for the time being due to my commitment to the small business I recently started. While  I was on a two month hiatus from 5th & Farmer, I was busy at work creating a handmade hair accessory business called Crowns by 5th & Farmer. I sell my products on Etsy, and you can view my online store here. My store specalizes in flower crowns and headpieces, both of which are so in right now & I, for one, am obsessed with! Here’s a sample of what I sell on my site

In addition, I recently launched an exclusive line of Sorority themed flower crowns that make perfect big little gifts, an adorable accessory on Bid Day, Recruitment, sisterhoods, events, or promotional photo shoots. I have a line of specialty vintage headpieces that I am planning to launch this coming week, and they are seriously stunning, I’m way too excited! I wrote a small story that provides a little background on what inspired me to open my own business:

Crowns Fit For A Princess

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who dreamed of daises, pearls, lace, and beautiful gems…As a student and sorority girl at one of the nation’s largest colleges, I experience and witness the lives of women who strive to express themselves through style & fashion everyday. From festivals to formals, an accessory always adds the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. Finding the right accessory, however, is usually the hardest part. My aim is to shorten the search and provide the beautiful, classy, powerful woman with the accessory that fits. Fits like a crown. After envisioning the perfect combination of a girly, glam, bohemian, yet sophisticated piece, I just had to create it. Designing, creating, and crafting have always been a passion of mine. Selling handmade bracelets door to door at the age of 8 and clearly never growing out of it. Through creating hair accessories for women, my goal is to empower those who wear Crowns by 5th & Farmer to be unique, be themselves, and feel like royalty.

If the crown fits, wear it.

…The End

So the time has come for me to say au revoir to the blogging world for now. Best wishes to all of you & be sure to keep an eye out for Crowns by 5th & Farmer.

Room Service, Old Sport?

As if I needed to find another reason to fuel my love affair with The Great Gatsby, I came across this…

To my awe, wonder, and delight I discovered that The Plaza Hotel and Restoration Hardware partnered up to create the Fitzgerald Suite. A suite made in homage to the author and Luhrmann’s cinematic masterpiece. Designer Catherine Martin was the brain behind the design and décor in the beautiful 900-square-foot room. Her flawless set design in the film prove to be just as equally fabulous in the suite, between the stunning era-inspired art deco furniture to the rich color palette. Did I mention that it’s only a few doors down from the Eloise Suite? Sign me up; I think I’m due for a trip to New York.

Beverly Hills Home Tour: Lisa Vanderpump

One of my all time favorite interior design looks is the regal, feminine, glam look that Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills implemented into her lavish Beverly Hills home. The $12 million dollar home is decorated in pure pink perfection, as Lisa accents her dominantly black, white, cream, and silver décor with pastel pink and some lilac. Many would describe Lisa’s interior decorating style as over the top glam, and that it may be, with the glitz of over 13 crystal chandeliers, tufted couches and headboards, and glossy mirrored pieces adorning her grand home. Feminine touches such as flowers, white washed vintage textiles, art galleries, and romantic candle sticks add to the glamorous ambiance.

Pictures of various rooms in her new Beverly Hills home have been circulating through many interior design and “dream home” boards on Pinterest for the past four months, which is where I originally came across them and fell in love. Literally obsessing over the rooms, I did some research to find out that they were the work of none other than, my favorite character on RHOBH. She acts like a queen, she obviously lives like one too. This house is the epitome of my dream décor, so I just had to share. Here’s a mini tour of Lisa Vanderpump’s regal new Beverly Hill’s home.

A DASHing Office Space

Keeping up with the Kardashians is easier said than done, as the LA and Atlanta based designer Brian Patrick Flynn, soon found out when he was given the challenge of creating three office spaces for Kardashian Jenner Communications. His work is always wonderful and these offices are no exception. I could stare at these rooms all day and not bat an eye. Lucky for Liz Killmond, who handles the affairs of the younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, she gets to do just that.

The black and white striped walls create a bold yet sleek look that define the space. Functional details include the large gold framed chalkboard and cobalt blue porcelain lamps. The symmetry of his work never ceases to strike a chord with me, as the arraignment of the decor is flawlessly placed.

The details are immaculate with diverse textures and patterns that come together through the accent color. The navy and cream Moroccan vase and the blue ikat pillows are a perfect example of how to properly mix patterns.

Noelle Keshishian’s office is my absolute favorite. I die for the wallpaper, I love anything with a metallic element and I’ve always been a fan of Moroccan prints. The black desk makes a simple statement and is accented perfectly by the mirrored console. Again, he’s after my heart with the symmetrical placing of the beautiful black lamps and continues to kill it with the modern chandelier. My love affair with lighting doesn’t end here…

The black chandelier in the extra office, which was created for future employees of the expanding Kardashian Jenner empire, is the perfect style to offset the wooden desk and graphic wallpaper and rug.

If I could spend a day of my working life in an office that looks remotely similar to these works of art, I’d die a happy girl. A job well done to Brain P Flynn who successfully kept up with the Kardashians.
