Since this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, this week’s Friday’s Most Wanted is a very unique red, white, and blue dress (not in the traditional stars and striped way!). Check it out – it’s a Mary Katrantzou design, called Harbour Bridges Printed Dress in Multi. Isn’t it so unique? The entire dress is photo printed with bridges and trees. Talk about some pattern-and-print-play! The price is a little much, but hey a girl can dream. Hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day Weekend. I will be spending mine away in the mountains, and then at a spa. Can’t wait for some relaxing time!

Easy, breezy (beautiful Cover Girl?) dress. I really love this Anthropologie Estrella Maxi Dress. I’m an advocate of maxi dresses and skirts, AND I just read the other day that wearing them boosts women’s confidence, so take that all you maxi dress haters! Anyway, not only do I love that this Anthro dress is a little longer than the usual summer frock, I really like the cut and the bright design on black – this adds for a nice contrast, and allows for some great easy pairing. By that I mean, you can dress this look up or down, wear it with colored accents, or pair it with neutrals. Many options all in one dress.
Today’s most wanted are several home decor products from a lovely site called Brika. Brika features unique jewelry, house and home items, accessories, and a whole bunch of other good stuff from designers and artists. The three pieces in today’s most wanted are from the site’s “Spring Decor” shop.
I love the color coral, especially for spring, and it looks great with the gold markings on this cute little plate. Also loving the sun-type design.
This fabric bucket is a two-for-one deal. It’s the perfect way to brighten up a space, and serves as storage. I have an obsession with storage buckets and bins (I know, it’s weird).
This print reminds me of a white lemon-patterned skirt I bought, which then reminds me of the Amalfi Coast in Italy (please take me back there!). It’s a fun bright print that can make any room more lively.

I am pretty much loving every piece in the new Lou & Grey line for LOFT. While I’m what I like to call a fashion-enthusiast, I’m not big on suffering for the sake of looking good (props to those ladies who can wear heels all day every day!). In other words, I really do like to be comfy, and luckily there’s a way to be comfy and stylish at the same time (especially with the new Lou & Grey for LOFT line). Check out these lovely dresses in the collection.
“A woman can be beautiful at any age. I think my mother is very beautiful, so I’m not scared of aging. French women have a very natural approach to beauty. For us, it’s important to look natural, I think. Be happy for who you are and make the best of it.” -Jeanne Damas, a personal style blogger and the face of Macy’s new Maison Jules line
This week’s Friday’s Most Wanted is actually not a Friday’s Most Wanted post, but instead I thought it would be fun to share a few photos from Easter with you. I’ve always been a fan of the Ukrainian traditions my family holds for each holiday (and everything else…), and Easter is one of those holidays filled with tons of traditions. For example, we headed over to church for a 12 am liturgy, and then had our Easter baskets (filled with delicious kielbasa and Easter goodies) blessed after the service. The entire Easter weekend was pretty much filled with eating, eating, and oh, more eating (my family and I are very good at that).
I also wanted to share with you two articles of clothing that I have recently inherited and just love. The first is a one-of-a-kind coat made in Ukraine. Just look at how gorgeous it is in the photo below! The second is the dress I wore for Easter, given to me by my future sister-in-law. It has an asian design and is very bright – a perfect fit for the holiday. Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, and enjoy your weekend!
This week’s most wanted is this Cadence Trim Detail Silk Shirt Dress by DVF. I absolutely LOVE DVF and am determined to own a DVF wrap dress one day. Here’s what I love about the Cadence Trim dress: it’s blue and white (great colors for any season), it’s silk, it has a belt to tie the dress and show off the waist, and the white piping in the middle and bottom of the dress is a very classy touch. It would make a great Easter dress – Happy Easter everyone!
