Friday Favorites - #12

It's Friday!!  I saw this little meme and thought it was funny... 
Dior and I
Have you heard of this documentary? It premiered this year. It's about Raf Simons' debut designing for Atelier Dior.  He was in a new position at a new company, and he had to design an entire haute couture collection in 8 weeks.   The documentary goes through the process while narrating excerpts from an autobiography of Christian Dior.  
I really enjoyed this film. It was interesting to see how a concept turned into a reality.  If you like Project Runway, then you will love this documentary. It's like Project Runway, but for real, with a much bigger budget! 
I wanted to share with you some pictures of the famous floral walls from the haute couture show of that season.  Raf had an entire apartment covered floor to ceiling in fresh flowers. Can you imagine how it smelled?  




Paris Maps
This week I received in the mail "Paris Maps".  They are these pretty hand drawn and watercolored paintings from Carol Gillott, an ex-pat living in Paris.  Also, she runs a cute blog, Paris Breakfasts.  While they are only copies of the original art work, every month she has a new issue. It's so much fun getting them in the mail! Additionally she includes little business cards from Paris... so you can pretend you were there! You can purchase both Paris Mail and Paris Maps here.

Fall
I was at Homegoods this week and couldn't help myself.. I bought this cute table runner and little pumpkin candles. I haven't decorated the rest of the house yet (as when it's 106 outside it's hard to think it feels like Fall!) but I am starting to get in the mood. I will admit I will miss the long Summer evenings.
Mackenzie-Childs Wallpaper
Did you know MC came out with wallpaper?  While I'm not too sure I would use it, I certainly think its cute. I really like the polka dot paper! What do you think?

Hope you are enjoying these last weeks of Summer... while I know the start of Fall isn't 'til the end of September, in blogland Fall starts around... now!
I'd love for you to follow me: bloglovin, instagramtwitterpinterest, and google plus.

  1. Oh my gosh, those flower-covered walls are spectacular! As for the MC walls, I'm not so sure. It looks great in that photo, but I would find it a bit much to live with.

    1. I guess there were a lot of walls in this post! I agree, the MC walls I think are a little bit much, but maybe for a little powder room? I wish I could have seen the flower walls for real!

  2. I really love the meme and I saw the trailer for Dior and I. My oldest daughter is totally into fashion and she can't wait to see it. Those flower walls were all so gorgeous and I really liked the wallpaper for kids, too. I'm glad I found your blog today. I really enjoyed the visit.

    Have a great weekend... :)

    1. The movie is fun and interesting at the same time. Oh the wallpaper could be great for a kids room, I was just thinking in a comment above how maybe a powder room would be nice. Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll come again!
