how the heck is it friday already??? don't i get more time to prepare? or relax? [also, i just now realized that i completely skipped over wedding wednesday. i promise, i'll make up for it next week!] ohhhh boy... but anyways, here is a small sampling of this week's prettiest of the pretties ~
~ dream kitchen organization ~
remember when i posted about that pretty rental the other day? i began designing it from a dirty mess to what i envision to be one day a gorgeous retreat. and it would be organized as beautifully as the above picture. oh yes, yes it would.

~ dream house in SF ~
truly a kait-dream of a home. just head on over to desire to inspire to completely fall in love.
~ zhou xun wears my fave chanel flapper-esque dress ~
i'm still totally in love with this dress - i mean, this is the THIRD post it has made its way on to! [see: 1, 2] not to mention that i love chinese actress zhou xun's styling for the 2011 hong kong film awards about 1,000,000 times more than the model's runway look. gorgeous.

~ helen mirren is a baller ~
clearly i'm still loving the look of dress + leather that i included in last week's friday faves. and man does helen mirren rock this leather jacket over a flowy leopard print dolce & gababana gown! seriously blown away right now... [found on RCFA]
~ pretty pretty necklace ~
worn by amanda seyfried at the red ridding hood premiere in london.
necklace by by tom binns. [via the vogue diaries]
~ super cool merchandising ~
definitely something to stow away in my "maybe one day" book . . .
~ barberry & lace store credit ~
one beautiful item from barberry & lace, in honor of creator/blogger miss leigh ashley having 800+ followers! whoop whoop! so head on over to her blog to enter & also take advantage of one of the many ways to get extra entries ~
p.s. if i won, i would get one of her gorgeous new headbands! swooooon.
~ jewelry set by ten things ~
... that i am absolutely in love with. daydream lily is hosting this incredible giveaway where one (very!) lucky winner gets both the earrings and the necklace - my personal fave - shown above, by the etsy jeweler ten things. i am majorly crossing my fingers for this one!
one last thing...
~ i won! ~
the adorable cake holder i included in last week's friday faves giveaways section. all i have to say is thank you thank you to both cassie over at moon face for hosting the giveaway, and to the etsy shop stands for all seasons for offering it!
i think i'm going to end up putting my fave perfumes in it or something because i definitely want it in my room, not the kitchen. it all depends on how large it ends up being... i'll keep you all updated!
well, that's it for this week.
a bit briefer than usual, but hopefully still enough to add some color and inspiration to your life :)
