If I Had Unlimited Funds: February 17th

I have spent so much time stuck on the couch or in bed with one ridiculous cold after another. I can not wait until this winter is over! Normally I’m all about the cold. I love bundling up and wearing layers. If I could walk around with a quilt wrapped around me all day every day, I would!

This down time has caused me to internet window shop way more than usual. So after three months of adding things to pinterest and numerous wish list and decided to do another one of these posts. So, If I Had Unlimited Funds i’d totally buy…

unlimitedfunds_021714_0011One of a Kind Eames RKR by cast + crew (I’m not normally into the color red, but lately I have been drawn to it. Is that weird?)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0022Sherlock Print by Tillieke (How amazing would this look on the wall!? I NEED it) /// 3Mini Quote – Douglas Adams by Britt Wilson (One of my favorite quotes by my favorite author!)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0034 - Marva RX Glasses by Warby Parker (I’ve been on the rx glasses kick. I needed a new pair and have tried on sooooo many in the past few months. I finally found a pair of dark red ray bans that were perfect. I know that dark red doesn’t go with everything so I’m now on the search for a second, inexpensive pair for the days I’m not into mismatching. which isn’t too many days)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0045Nerd Art Print by Little Atae

unlimitedfunds_021714_0056Dodecahedron Mobile by submicrocosm (my new love of paper and my old love of anything geometric all in one!) /// 7Paper Unicorn by Paperwolf (how awesome is this?!?! They also make other animals and they are all just as gorgeous!)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0068Metal Wall Shelf by Eina (I love enameled metal and the color teal, so this little shelf is perfect! It comes in other colors too.)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0079I Work Out, Just Kidding I Watch Netflix Tank by Active Apparel (ha, way too true) /// 10  - Shimmer Authentic Vans (these are so neat! It’s like my tomboy side and my newly aquired girly side collaborated and made a pair of shoes!!!!)

So you’ve seen a tiny peek into my window shopping world, so now I can ask…

Are there any shops you think I’d really like? Please share!!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: November 28th

I know it’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S., but our plans aren’t really too big this year. We will be doing a full on dinner with the in laws on Sunday. So today we decided to do a dinner theater type thing with friends. Only instead of a play, it will be the new movie Frozen! I’m excited.

But now onto the virtual window shopping. If I had unlimited funds to buy myself anything online right now, I’d buy…

unlimitedfunds_112813_0011Handmade Trestle Table by Seven Hands High (I don’t really have a perfect place for this, I just think its gorgeous!)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0022Smile Banner Brooch by B.Goods /// 3It’s Just a Phase Coaster Set by Common Rebels (I own many sets by these awesome folks, and I truly feel like I need more!)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0034Diamond Himmeli Light Pendant by Panselinos (this lamp is just so amazing, I think it would look great in any room of my house! Well except the morning room, there’s already a geometric pendant in there)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0045 – ANYTHING by Red Raven Studios! (I had the pleasure of meeting these super sweet makers when I did Crafty Bastards this year. Everything is absolutely gorgeous. I want it all!)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0056 – Specs Shelf by Okulo (I NEED one of these, I have accidentally accumulated glasses. For the first time in my life actually. I guess there are just so many cute glasses out there now! RX and sunglasses!!!) /// 7Clueless Watercolour Portrait by Oh Gosh, Cindy! (All of this shoppes portraits are so great! My second favorite was the Zooey Deschanel print “come on bangs, you sons of bitches!” I feel her pain)



8The Forest Edge & The Camp Out both by Cricket Press (I’d actually love to own anything they make! It’s all so spooky AND sweet.)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0079Lost & Found Screenprinted Poster by West Cermak (I love the simplicity with a little texture added in. I think this is a perfect print for gallery walls that are full of busy prints, and need something bold)

unlimitedfunds_112813_00810Hand printed String Cuff Bracelet & 11Hand Printed “Southwest” Pillow both by thief and bandit (This is yet another shop where I just love it ALL!)

If I Had Unlimited Funds: 31st Birthday Edition

My 31st birthday is coming up in a few days! I have already received an early birthday gift from my husband, and it was pretty awesome! Its not like I need more, but If I Had Unlimited Funds, in the form of birthday gift cards or something, I’d buy…

unlimitedfunds_082313_0011Swedish Hasbeens Women’s Lacy Platform Sandal (or any of the designs similar to this! I notice I walk comfortably in the mid heel height clogs, and I really want a pair of T-strap shoes!)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0022H&M Decorative Plates from their new Home Line!! (I want all three above! I imagine they would look great on my dining room plate wall. They are technically in my price range since they are only $4 a plate, but I’m afraid if I try to purchase just a few of the new home items, I may want even more!! example below…)


3 – Deer Head Wall Decoration from H&M’s new Kids Decor line (um, its a faux mounted deer head, of course I want it! It would look great with my dozen other faux deer pieces) /// 4Doctor Who Matt Smith Portrait by Lizustration (Do I need to even explain why I want this one? haha)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0045HUSKYLOCK s21 Serger/Overlock Machine (I have been dreaming about making an entire new wardrobe for myself, and I feel like this machine would make everything last longer and look more professional! It’s a serger with a coverstitch option!!! Since I finally bought a new sewing machine, this is the next thing I’m saving up for.)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0056LAPPLJUNG RUTA Rug by IKEA (I keep seeing the square version of this all over the internets, and even though it’s everywhere I still wanted it for my morning room. Well I went to go get the photo for the square one when I saw the rectangle one completely in beige and black! I squealed and called my husband!! It’s even more perfect and fits the space way better!! IT WILL BE MINE! SOON!) /// 7STRANDMON Wing Chair by IKEA (We need more seating in our living room for upcoming holidays and parties. This chair is perfect b/c it accommodates my tall husband AND fits our current decor)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0068Seize the Daytime Party Dress by Dear Creatures on Modcloth /// 9Foxtail & Fern Dress also found on Modcloth (these lovelies have been hanging in my shopping cart for awhile. It’s been hard justifying dress purchases when I can just make one for half the price!)

unlimitedfunds_082313_00710 & 11 – Anything from the Two String Jane Shop! (I love the simple, yet bold, designs and all the comfy shapes! I especially want the above two, they would fit perfectly into my wardrobe. Which apparently will have a lot of navy and rust if I keep finding pieces like the four above!! Not normally my “goto colors”)

The best part about this list is I actually plan on purchasing each piece for myself eventually. I’ve been working really hard lately and almost every penny has gone back into the business. I am going to start budgeting better so I can buy myself something nice every so often, and this will be my shopping list!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: March 18th

This week I decided to do another random assortment of things I have been eyeing lately!

I’m still on the gluten once a day deal, so I’m still tired and have had a lot of time to browse the Internets and basically window shop!

So if I had unlimited funds to buy whatever I wanted, I’d buy…

1 - Dreamy Morning Roe Dress by ZIB Textile (How amazing is this dress? there’s geometric shapes, deer and its teal! One of my favorite colors!)

2Organic Silver Post Earrings with White Gold Sparkles by tiny galaxies /// 3Scooter Necklace by Strangely Yours (How cool is this thing? It’s laser cut and can move!! Plus you can customize the license plate!! Plus its a scooter, I LOVE scooters!)

4Planet Poster 1 by Debbie Carlos /// 5Holding Pattern Overnight Bag on ModCloth

6Personalized Polaroid Portrait by Danny Brito (I think this is great, you send the artist a photo, and he does a Polaroid type illustration for you!)

7Twilight Fox Print by Hillary Bird /// 8Hexagonal Eco Resin Ring by Rosella Resin

9Wood Pendant Collar with Gold Geometric Pattern by the Twenty Fingers

10Alice in Wonderland tee on Uniqlo /// 11Modern Throw Blanket by Little Hip Squeaks (most of the items in the shop are for little ones, but I just love the simplistic patterns so much. I was excited to find out they made large throw blankets!)

I’m getting closer to the date when I can stop eating gluten again (April 10th to be exact), so I’m hoping to show more projects and less window shopping afterwards!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: March 7th

So today’s window shopping theme is all about dresses, tights and boots! My newest obsession (which isn’t THAT new since I also talked about it back in November).

This latest form of obsession started a few weeks back while I was browsing the Internets, when I came across Target’s new designer collaboration with Prabal Gurung, and this dress

I wanted it right away! It was the perfect color, perfect shape and even had a geometric twist to it. So I waited until my husband came home (and for friends to head out, since we had company that day) to take me to Target. I didn’t have high hopes it would fit, no dress every fits me right. My shoulders are petite, my torso is long and my legs are short. Never a good combo when it comes to dresses… or so I thought! I was totally proved wrong when I tried this thing on, it fit perfectly and actually flattered my body, which NEVER happens with cute clothes! I was sold, not just on this dress, but ALL fit and flare style dresses!! ALL OF THEM! (I even picked up this cute black dress that same night and have worn it multiple times)

Now I have this constant need to find dresses comparable, both in style and in cut. I never want to wear jeans again, I ONLY want to wear dresses, cute dresses! Lucky for me, these things are big now and you can pretty much find them anywhere.

So if I had unlimited funds to buy cute dresses I’d buy…

1Difference Between White and Saffron Dress on ModCloth /// 2Our Song Curvy Plus Belted Dress in Navy on Ruche /// 3Women’s Half Zip Fit and Flare Dress by Mossimo at Target (I seem to really love stripes!!)

4Emerald My World Dress on Hello Holiday /// 5Geometric Lace Skater Dress by Express

6Ivete Patchwork Dress by Leifnotes and found at Anthropologie (This dress is so neat! It’s actually patchwork, just like a quilt!!) /// 7Prabal Gurung For Target Dress in Meet the Parents Print found at Target (this is the monotone version of the first dress! I found it in my size at a Target not too far away, so I may go try it on this weekend to see if I like the print on me)

And of course you can’t just go buy dresses and not have anything to go under them! So here’s a few things I wish I could accessorize these, and other dresses, with…

8Arrows Cotton Leggings by Hello Apparel /// 9Stephenie Boot found on ShoeMint

10Motor Boots by Wanted Shoes /// 11Emerald and Black Leggings by ZIB textile (I really love patterned leggings and boots, the combo always makes me smile)

12Muse Flats by Elf (I’d take these in ANY color!! They are made by hand and look soo comfy!)

13Any Low or Mid Height Heel that Swedish Hasbeens makes!! (They are all so gorgeous!)

Since I’m new to this whole “buying cute clothes” thing, I could use any suggestions as to where to find dresses and such!! Thanks in advance!!

Oh and another part of my obsession seems to be the urge to make my own dresses! I’ve already made a muslin of one I really like and I’m just waiting on some custom fabric to come in. Once I finish the first working dress I’ll totally share it on here!!!! I’m excited, I’ve always wanted to make clothes and now I finally feel comfortable enough to do so!!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: January 28th

Today I don’t really have a theme, just more of a “I just REALLY want these things”. A miss match of random things I find on the internet and add to my “Things I Want” list on Pinterest.

So here goes, If I had unlimited funds and NO theme, I’d buy…

1I’m So Tired T-Shirt by Hello Apparel (maybe if i wore this shirt, It would explain my zombie like state these days) /// 2Rainy Day orginal print/painting by Sara Harvey

3Conan O’Brien Quote Typography Poster by IScreenYouScreen (I own their world map print, and I love it! the entire thing is screen printed, even the background color!!)

4Cody by Jon Knox Studio /// 5Quilted Fox Print by Gingiber

6Geometric Leggings by Dream Nation (everything thing is the shop is amazing!) /// 7Geometric Quilt Print by Almost Sunday Inc

8Schoolboy Satchel on Shoemint (I just really like satchels)

9Wood Alphabet Wall Decor by Graphic Spaces /// 10Rude Little Black Book by 27th Street Press

So all I need to do now and either sell everything in my shop, or win the lottery and I’ll be able to get ALL OF THIS! I’d say either is a good plan!
