Obsession Confession: Freckles

I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with freckles. I've always thought of them as kisses from angels ☺. As a young child, I used to wish I had a smattering of these magical marks on my face.
This obsession may have started with a caretaker at my grandfather's house who I loved as a child. Her name was Rose and she always smelled like cinnamon, oatmeal and fresh soap. She was fair skin with auburn hair and endless freckles on her face. She was super sweet and treated me with the utmost care. That was the start of me associating freckles with beauty.

Delectable Designers: Mandate of Heaven

Girly. Whimsical. Fun.
Those were the first words that came to mind when I discovered Mandate of Heaven online. They're definitely the kind of clothes made for the eccentric lover of vintage beauty.
Every piece (with the exception of their Bespoke Denim) is created partially/completely with recycled or vintage materials.

The clothing is quite magical and their Spring 2010 Opiate collection is BRILLIANT:

You can view more of the line here.

Shop them online at Bona Drag or visit their store. Info for their flagship store/studio can be found below:

November is here and with it comes chilly weather, the holidays and mugs full of hot chocolate with endless marshmallows. Today, I wish for chic candy colored coats that provide an even dose of warmth and style:
