1 Dress, 2 Prints / Mari vs. Melynda

Mari or Melynda / One Dress, Two Prints @ HeySesame.com - Club Monaco Dress It's always hard to justify buying two of the same thing.  So when I saw this amazing dress in two different colors, I knew I was in deep trouble.  I really tried to pick just one... but in the end, I came up with too many good reasons to score both!  Wear the printed one as a day dress, and then transition into the black (...)

Game of Thrones / Modern Maxi Dress

Game Of Thrones' Modern Khaleesi Dress @ HeySesame.com - Zara Maxi Dress I take my style cues from a lot of places, but you probably never imagined HBO's hit show Game of Thrones to be one of them.

A Modern Classic: The Stylish Bar Cart

A Modern Classic: The Stylish Bar Cart @ HeySesame.com - Gold Target Bar Cart The season of house parties and summer barbeques is upon us, and nothing creates more buzz than a nostalgic Old Hollywood bar cart carrying some festive decor (and wine, of course).  No, I'm not talking cheesy snowman sculptures, I'm referring to modern topiary and some subtle but magical fairy string lights!  Not only does this decor get my guests into a celebratory (...)

Chair + Painting / 2 Corners

Chair + Painting @ HeySesame.com - Ghost Chair and Modern Art I'm obsessed with accent chairs.  They don't even have to be functional; I just love how they look and the way they liven up the corner of any room.  My apartment in downtown Los Angeles is a modern industrial loft design, so the walls are exposed, heavy concrete cement.  In order to bring life to my space, I've created different and unexpected themes in each (...)
