ruffles and sequins and bows, oh my!

Anyone have a vintage camera tripod laying around? Because this would be an awesome project. Or you could just donate it to me…
My jeans have been getting a little too much wear lately, so I’ve been searching for inspiration to pull me out of this fashion rut. I’m really feeling Rachel Antonoff‘s fall collection – 30s-inspired looks in neutrals that aren’t at all boring.
lovely finds from Etsy shop Yolk Vintage…
I attempted to make macarons last night. The first batch deflated when I removed them from the oven, stuck to the parchment, and fell apart when I tried to remove them. The second batch was only slightly more successful. So instead of two dozen macarons, I ended up with 16. Only three of which looked good enough to take a picture. Ha. On the bright side, they tasted pretty good (thanks to a rich ganache filling). Have any of you made macarons before? Got a good recipe or helpful tips/tricks for success? It would be much appreciated! :)
And while I’m on the topic of sweets, check out this adorable cupcake my friend Ryan made for Halloween. (Cell phone photo, excuse the quality.)
I’ve been seeing card catalogs popping up everywhere. Which begs the question, where do you find a card catalog? Because I want one. You know, to display flowers. Or store my scarves. Or (more practically) as a side or coffee table to organize crafts and knick-knacks.
