In addition to not being a crafter (see Fri post)
I am also not a foodie blogger...

But today we just might make an exception.

I am many things- but I'm NOT a crafter.
But if I waaaaaas crafty, Sweet Paul has some really cool DIYs. 
So somebody make me something.

dolce and gabbana makeup

Recently I started using Dolce and Gabbana's line of cosmetics.
A friend of a friend got me hooked on a few products
 and now I think I have some sort of addiction.

The packaging. The texture. The scent.
I can't get enough of it. I think it's beginning of a beautiful problem.
Above, find some of our personal faves that are in office 
and pretty much on display at all times.

Glossybox American Beauty Box

 It's time!!!!
As you know I have been working with the team at Glossybox since March on the American Beauty Box! I've been dying to share it with you and I'm proud to say that I can finally show it off.
I know you have seen tons of behind the scenes images from myself, Glossybox, Oscar de la Renta and everyone else involved. But now the best part: The box itself :)

 I redesigned the standard pink box this month. Turned it white and added a fashion illustration on top! What I hear most from readers and followers is that they want a piece of the artwork and cannot afford the hefty price tag ( I see you) . SOOOO I am excited to say that this is one of the rare occasions that we have printed the work to get it into your hands. Hope you'll display it in your most stylish space. And, as per usual, I want to see a picture when you do. Tweet it at me @dallasshaw!!!

You can order now through end of June, so if you haven't gotten yours yet go go go!


I would like to share a small change in the collaboration with my followers, fans and friends. 
When the  nail company we originally planned to include defaulted on their plan to provide the polish, we decided to replace  it with a different product on my love list (one that has also been personally chosen by me and which I feel confident that you’ll enjoy).
I apologize for any confusion this caused subscribers and I thank you for the amazing faith you always placed in me and my brand.

whipped bakeshop

 Whipped bakeshop did it AGAIN! 
They turned the 6 dresses I wore for the Glossybox/ ODLR shoot into cookies for the team. 
Honestly- How amazing is this?!

This week, after a quick office redesign for a uncoming project, we found ourselves searching for the perfect note cards to have on hand. Each week we find ourselves sending little loves notes to clients so we always keep a stack of simple notes within arms reach. 
Here are a few of our faves- do you have any you can share with us that we missed? 
Serious search mode.

Sabine G

For our recent promo shoot for the Glossybox project, piles of jewelry were brought in for me to play and style myself in ( You don't understand. Dream day. ) One of those jewelry designers I ended up wearing was Sabine G.
A few of the pieces I wore are below. I pieced them with a red ruffled gown, red shoes (both by Oscar de la Renta), red lips... it was a very "red everything" look which I don't normally opt for but somehow worked. 

 The last piece above is a double ring which I wore and truthfully didn't want to take off. I have never seen such a pretty double ring before. It's something I plan to add to my collection sometime soon.

 This one was on my insta during the shoot. The rings were made to be worn above the knuckle. 
So. very. cool. Sabine. G.

Nude heels make your legs instantly longer. And this is the time of year that I add at least two new pair to my show wardrobe. We sat down in the office and gathered up our very favorites this week. 
Still deciding on which two - thoughts?

#BTS Glossybox

Last month in NYC...

I was wisked away to the ODLR offices. 
Photographers, makeup artists, shoes, jewelry, gowns- 
everything came together for a two day photo shoot for our collabo with Glossybox.
(out right now)

I know most of you have been following on instragram. 
For the next few days, I'll be sharing a few ( a lot) of the bts photos 
from my very Carrie Bradshaw moment.

I have been getting the very sweetest notes from all of you- and I am so thrilled you have been following along with this project. The Dallas Shaw glossybox (the american beauty box) is available for the month of June. Go go go:

pretty ponies

The weather is getting warmer, and muggier, every day this week. Anyone with wavy or curly hair, consider yourself warned. No matter what your hair type, high temps call for up dos. Here are three of my favorite ponies on pinterest this week:
 { low and teased }

{ wavy and to the side }

{ high with a middle part }
