Happy Monday, guys! It's snowing already here in Northwest Arkansas this morning, so I can only imagine what's to come this afternoon. According to our local news, we're expected to receive up to 8 inches by 5:00 p.m. Ya know, my cute high heels are getting really tired of sitting in my closet...can't spring just get here already?!
Ok, well hopefully the following items will help put us all in the mood for warmer weather. Elle Decor is featuring a spread in their March 2010 issue about the Arts and Crafts trend in fashion/home decor/lifestyle items.
These aren't your popsicle stick photo frames from summer camp, though. This trend takes arts and crafts to a high-fashion level. In the words of Burger King, "I'm loving it."
Doesn't this Prada frock just make you want to grab a glue gun and a Bedazzler? Yeah, me neither. But it does make me want to scour the web for a great knock-off of this cute little dress!

As usual, our friends over at LuLu's have some terrific options for this trend. So wearable and so utterly affordable! Oh, and don't forget that all Blonde Ambitioners get 15% off everything from LuLu's this month! Just type in promo code BLONDE at checkout!!

I personally am loving the cool use of textiles and prints that home decor stores like Wild & Wolf, Target and Osburne & Little are using.

And natch, when we talk about Arts and Crafts, Urban Outfitters is one of the first stores that comes to mind. The dress, pillow and rug below are perfection.

So channel your inner Martha Stewart and get crafty! Er, um, just shop for crafty-looking things. Either way...
P.S.- I just had to show you guys my new shoes that I'm wearing today...they aren't the most comfortable things on Earth, but I do feel pretty cute wearing them ; ) Baker's for $30, ya'll!
P.P.S.- I'll have a new blog button up tomorrow morning, so be sure to grab it! Thanks Danielle!!
