Sitting Pretty

Saw this a while ago on Decorno — a pretty and perfectly proportioned little sofa. The linen slipcover gives it a great casual elegance, too. Just had to share.

A Little Black Dress

I'm going to the ballet next month (an unexpected and fun Christmas gift for two from my lovely brother), and I've been pondering what to wear ever since I got the tickets. The icy temperatures we're currently enduring will probably make me decide to go with something warm, but aren't these lovely vintage dresses from Posh Girl Vintage wonderful to dream about? I've picked two pieces each from five decades here (though they also have great stuff from the 1970s and 1980s), but I have to say that I absolutely loved all the dresses from the 1950s. Gorgeous. Happily discovered via design is mine.
