Love: Creatures of the Wind

I have been watching the mini tv series about the 2011 Fashion Fund contestants lately and immediately fell in love with Creatures of the Wind. The couple duo from Chicago have such a refreshing and keen eye for cut, color, and print. What I love most about them is the cut of their dresses, which tends to play with the volume of a classic 60/70's a-line cut. I also love the hair styling in each collection. Always soft, youthful, and very free. Goes perfectly with their clothes. These guys also hired one of my fave design companies, Confetti System, to make a wall of golden shimmery delight for a show. Check out all the love below, including the cool Creatures spring 2012 collection video.

Donate for a great Cause!

 Do you like Ira Glass? How about David Cross? Well, I kind of like both of these dudes, which is exactly why I decided to enter a poker game that they are participating in to help raise money for 826. Now, considering that us bloggers LOVE to write, we should all know about 826 and how it's an amazing nonprofit agency whose main goal is to provide unique writing programs for kids between the ages of 6 to 18.

So why not help a lady out by contributing to my fundraiser goal. All the money I raise is donated to the agency AND gives me better odds to play longer in the game and maybe even win! Every $1, $2, or $5 are a BIG help.

Go HERE to donate now! And then think happy thoughts for me between 1-6pm EST this Saturday. If I'm lucky, I'll win a trophy. But regardless of what happens, I'll be reporting back my amazing adventure next week.
