TGIF! This week has been..well a little crazy. We got back to Dallas LATE Sunday night after attending one of the best weddings in Colorado Springs. I mean…I guess I haven’t been to Colorado Springs in a long time but the husband and I are already trying to figure out when we can go back. It is just a dream land and the perfect weather…well it’s amazing.
Wednesday morning I headed to the Big Apple for a really quick trip (left NYC this morning) but I am SO excited about what I got to do yesterday and cannot wait to share! This weekend (hopefully) will be relaxing. We do have dinner plans tomorrow night (Saturday) at one of our favorite spots in Dallas (no, not Mi Cocina..I know that’s what you were thinking) but thats about it on our agenda (besides a golf tournament for the hubby). Sounds like an ideal couple of days. Needless to say, I need rest. This babe is tired. I hope you all have a lovely weekend! xx
I have seen my grandmother rock a brooch for as long as I can remember and never really thought I was a brooch girl (at least not yet) until I came across this brooch collard dress from Ted Baker. I loved the contrast of white on the collar and the simple silhouette is oh so flattering.
As you know I am a dress girl so this black and white brooch collar dress had my name written all over it. I love that I will be able to wear this little Ted Baker brooch collar dress now and later (paired with tights). How do you feel about wearing a brooch?

Last week my sweet friend Grace e-mailed about a new line that she thought I should know about, Fait La Force. After doing a little snooping research on the Fait La Force site I knew this was something really special. Started by two girls, Emma & Chandler who had a vision of collaborating their passions of design and helping foster jobs across Haiti.
After meeting by chance, Emma was looking for production capabilities & Chandler has lived in Haiti with her husband working with artisans for the past 4 years, these two hit it off, put their minds together and Fait La Force was born! Currently Chandler and her husband run the Fait La Force workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti & work day-to-day with the artisans while Emma works on the design and stateside aspects of the company. Match made in heaven if you asked me!
Fait La Force is made up of thoughtfully designed products with local resources creating the perfect mix of modern and traditional. Although I picked a few of my favorites above, make sure to check out all of the Fait La Force products here.
