This week has been wonderful. I launched Styled. magazine issue six. Thanks for all your sweet love and support for the project, you are seriously the best! It is my favorite issue yet.

We also had a wonderful getaway with friends in San Fransisco where I saw Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashion exhibit. It was an incredibly provocative show and I was surprised how many families with young children where there. Would you ever take your kids to an R rated art show for the sake of culturing them? Although risque, his materials and general work is quite amazing. I especially loved this dress made from ribbons. Here’s hoping for an equally inspiring weekend for us all.

And a few reasons to celebrate until Monday…
This floral installation is just beautiful.
How Pipi celebrated.
The best cootie catcher I have ever seen.
A pretty DIY necklace for mom.
Stripey favor bags.
Dyed skewers for fondue or smores.
And a very pretty summer party look.

Plus our house is in the Apt Therapy small cool contest, find it here. I’d love your vote!

PS. I joined Instagram! So far I have three photos of cakes, a snap of the ribbon dress, glitter that was priced at $25 and a couple cute twins. I imagine that’s just about right for my stream, I am vhudgins if you want to follow along.

    […] had this post in mind for awhile, inspired by the Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashion exhibit I saw last spring. He had a crazy exageratted version of this done in a very couture fabric. […]
