Life Meets Style: Perfectly Plated

I’ll be honest–It’s not every day that a table setting catches my eye. This one, however, is a different story. From floral details to pattern to shine, everything about this scene is perfection. I mean, don’t you want to know what the story is with this setting? Isn’t it a party you’d like to attend? I do! I would! Bold, feminine, and beautiful–eye-catching and aspirational. The perfect plate!

Thirsty Thursday: Purple Rain

We’ve talked pink drinks at length in this column, but purple drinks are uncharted territory! Being a Minnesota girl, however, as soon as I spotted this violet cocktail on Pinterest, I knew I had to share it with you all. After all, it’s named after a Prince song! Prince! We love Prince. And on the weekends, some of us love cocktails. This is the best of both worlds. Here’s how it’s done!
Purple Rain
1 1/4oz blue curaçao
1 1/4oz vodka
2oz cranberry juice
2oz pineapple juice
1/4oz lime juice
Shake all ingredients & pour over ice, or blend with ice for a frozen drink. Enjoy!
Drink up, Mieuxs! ❤

Life Meets Style: Urban Shoe Paradise

While I’ve never particularly identified as a “shoe girl”, I can definitely appreciate a particularly fabulous pair of pumps, a wear-everywhere boot, or a classic sneaker–especially when they’re on display. This snap from ELLE Decor showcases ALL of the aforementioned players in a quality shoe game and expertly arranges them from floor to ceiling. A little overwhelming? Perhaps. But I, for one, am totally down with the clothing-as-decor movement that appears to be sweeping through the interior design scene. Fashion and function is an absolute must for smaller spaces…and when your footwear collection is this massive and enviable, I’m sure there’s just an innate desire to show off put your sartorial goodies on display. No shame.
What do you think of this amazing space? Do you meld fashion and function or delve into style-meets-storage solutions?
