{Saturday’s Song} Think I’m In Love

Think I’m in Love

I really think I better get a hold of myself
Don’t wanna let the night get ahead of myself
Whisperin’ her love through a smoke ring smile
She doesn’t know what happens when she’s aroundI think I’m in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I’m in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say soDoodododododooodoo

Probably lay my head on a wooden floor
Tell her I was tired from working the store
Counting all the cash from an old shoebox
Saving up to buy her something she wants

I think I’m in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I’m in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so

What if it’s wrong?
What if it’s wrong
To pray in vain?
What does it mean
To fake your death?
To wake up tainted?

Take a little picture in a photobooth
Keep it in a locket and I think of you
Both of our pictures, face to face
Take off your necklace and throw it away

I think I’m in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I’m in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so

Really think I better get a hold of myself
Don’t wanna let the night get ahead of myself
Whisperin’ her love through a smoke ring smile
She doesn’t know what happens when she’s around

I think I’m in love
Think I’m in love
Think I’m in love
Think I’m in love
Think I’m in love
Think I’m in love
Think I’m in love
Think I’m in love

{Weekend Inspiration} Soulflower

posted in: luxelounge, Uncategorized | 1

Having just moved back up to the Bay Area, I have been having so much fun reconnecting with old friends. One such friend asked if I wanted to meet her in the city for lunch and check out her office. I quickly said yes and could not wait to check out the Soulflower SF headquarters! Emily is a friend of mine who went out on her own a few years ago and started an amazing floral design and event styling business. Not only are Emily’s creations gorgeous, but her business also has a commitment to sustainability and they use local and organic flower farms.

Just as I suspected, when I walked into her loft like office, in the Dog Patch area of San Francisco, there were beautiful flowers everywhere. I wanted to linger a little longer there but Emily is super busy (it is still “wedding season”) so we rushed out to have a quick lunch across the street.

My trip to Soulflower inspired me to notice the flowers all around me last weekend, but mostly it made me want to take a really long look at her website. I put together these photo “collages” using some of my favorite pics from her site. Which creations are your favorite? Take a look.

{Saturday’s Song} Quelqu’un M’a Dit

Quelqu’un M’a Dit
On me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand chose,
Elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses.
On me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud que de nos chagrins il s’en fait des manteaux pourtant quelqu’un m’a dit…

Refrain
Que tu m’aimais encore,
C’est quelqu’un qui m’a dit que tu m’aimais encore.
Serais ce possible alors ?

On me dit que le destin se moque bien de nous
Qu’il ne nous donne rien et qu’il nous promet tout
Parais qu’le bonheur est à portée de main,
Alors on tend la main et on se retrouve fou
Pourtant quelqu’un m’a dit …

Refrain

Mais qui est ce qui m’a dit que toujours tu m’aimais?
Je ne me souviens plus c’était tard dans la nuit,
J’entend encore la voix, mais je ne vois plus les traits
“Il vous aime, c’est secret, lui dites pas que j’vous l’ai dit”
Tu vois quelqu’un m’a dit…

Que tu m’aimais encore, me l’a t’on vraiment dit…
Que tu m’aimais encore, serais ce possible alors ?

On me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand chose,
Elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses
On me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud
Que de nos tristesses il s’en fait des manteaux,
Pourtant quelqu’un m’a dit que…

“The robes were FANTASTIC! My bridesmaids loved them and they were so comfortable — and cute!! One of my bridesmaids was 8 months pregnant and said, ‘This robe is definitely coming to the hospital with me when I deliver!’ I have also recommended Doie robes to anyone and everyone I know who is getting married. All of my bridesmaids agreed they were the best BM gift they had gotten! I can’t thank {Sara}enough for such a wonderful experience and such a great, memorable gifts. I know my bridesmaids felt so appreciated and it was a great touch on my special day. Thanks for an awesome experience!!”

“Throughout our entire wedding planning and prep process, we tried to keep everything as calm and fun as possible (all while managing everything during only an 8 month engagement!). The morning of the wedding was no different! Spending the morning in our extremely comfortable and very chic robes let us relax and just have an amazingly FUN time hanging out and getting ready. It was like a real party! Now we’ll have the robes to remember all the fun we had that morning for years to come!”

“I was married on Feburary 24, 2013 in Charleston, SC at the beautiful William Aiken House. The day couldn’t have been more perfect! We had decided that we only wanted to have our sisters in our wedding party. Mine being the matron of honor and his the best woman. I knew I wanted robes as gifts for us including our mothers. The robes not only make the getting ready photos nice, but are also a great gift you will actually use. The doie robes were exactly the look and quality I wanted. I love that when I use it now it takes me back to that day.”

{White Wedding}

posted in: luxelounge, Uncategorized | 0

I always find it exciting and inspiring when a bride wants to do something a untraditional, which is why I was thrilled when Eve emailed me and wanted to go with white robes for her bridesmaids! I’ve had some brides who pick a robe other than white for themselves, but I had never had a bride contact me and want to get white robes for her maids.

There are two options for the white robes, so the bride herself also wore white, but she chose the Lilian for herself and the Bettina for her friends. I love how the pop of color on their robes makes her white dress stand out.

I thought it was a bold move on her part and the perfect gift for a summer wedding.

“My Bridesmaids and I can’t say enough about how much we love these robes. Sara is great to work with and the robes are fantastic! Not only did I get one for all my bridesmaid, but I got one for my Sister-in-Law to wear on her wedding day. The white robes are so beautiful for brides, but I chose blue as my something blue. They are the perfect mix of comfort and elegance which is exactly the way you want to feel on your wedding day. Even after my “I Do’s”, my Doie robe is my staple wardrobe piece when I want to lounge around the house and still look good.”

{Weekend Inspiration} Simple Chic

posted in: luxelounge, Uncategorized | 0

I attended a gorgeous wedding at the Mountain Home Inn, in Mill Valley (my home town), this past weekend. The wedding was one of the smallest that I have been to, and the details were simple but well thought out and chic. I loved the vases of Dahlia’s that lined each table and the place settings were beautifully done. The view from the deck, at dinner, was the best detail of all and they couldn’t have asked for a nicer day and night (weather wise).

 

I wanted to share a photo of the elegant and unfussy flower arrangements as well as my place setting. The little gift with my name on it is an English “cracker” that had a few small party favors inside. The table was understated but beautiful and the “crackers” made it fun and festive.

“I got married on the 17th November 2012 in Bora Bora, Tahiti. I decided early on that I wanted a small and intimate wedding so a destination wedding seemed like the perfect option for me. We were joined by our immediate families and a close friend. The day was absolutely perfect with a stunning backdrop. Despite having planned the wedding without having seen the place everything went exactly to plan thanks to my remarkable wedding planner. Getting ready for the ceremony with my sister was a very special time for us and very exciting. It was great having the Lilian robe to wear . It was so light and comfortable even in the tropical heat. It also looked great. The robe was one of the first items I purchased for the wedding after I saw it on Style me Pretty. I was initially concerned I would not be able to have it posted to Australia but Sara was great and sorted it all out right away. The Lilian robe was also great during the honeymoon to throw over the bikini to keep the sun off and is so comfortable it will get a lot of use for years to come”
