i'm so inspired by luxe details in the bathroom. since it's a relatively small space, you can get away with showstopping elements like that amazing sink. it makes it a bit more high-end, don't you agree?
it's really no secret that i love katie rodger's work. her art always has such a sense of movement and grace, and she uses color like a pro. really, she is a pro, she's been painting since she was a little girl and has worked on collaborations with multiple high-end designers, including coach and swarvoski. i am just in love with those adorable shorts. as we're getting into the springtime, i'm keeping my eye out for shorts that, while they remain feminine and girly, are still edgy enough to not go little bo peep. (please excuse the random mother goose reference.) plus, they're at the perfect length - not too long, and not too short. they would be great with sandals or heels, and also could easily be dressed up with some funky jewelry and a blazer. shop the rest of the collection here. xo eliza (katie rodger's new designs via paperfashion - gardenia floral shorts, j. crew tee, nordstrom sandals, maison martin margiela clutch)
do you ever give something, and tell everyone about it? let's say that you gave a homeless person 50 dollars, and then you posted it on facebook, tweeted about it, and wrote a blog post about it. while it is natural to be excited about doing something good, there comes a point when you can get into the "bragging zone".
i am so inspired by these photos. if you've been reading mode vintage for a while, you probably already know that i have a thing for white or neutral walls. it's not entirely unfounded - a blank slate allows you to go wild with your colors and textures in a way that colored walls don't.
whenever i see a pattern on the internet there is a 50% percent chance that it is designed by ashley goldberg. the shapes and techniques she uses are super graphic and simple, but the colors really shine. i think my favorite might be the one in the bottom right-hand corner. it reminds me of bubbles, am i right? xo eliza (all photos via ashley goldberg flickr)
He is jealous for me. That one phrase just fills me to the brim. The Creator of the entire universe wants US to be with Him. He wants to be near to us!
This is one of my favorite songs. It's by John Mark McMillan, an amazing musician. The love for God and the raw excitement is tangible in that video. I always laugh when I hear people say that church is 'boring'. You must be going to the wrong church! Psalm 33:3 says, "Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully [on the strings] with a loudandjoyful sound." A loud and joyful sound! I don't think they mean quiet and timid worship.
I am so blessed every time I watch videos or I go to services like this one. All of those people demonstrated a passionate love for their Lord. He loves us that way, so let's love on Him back.
I confess: I have quite the sweet tooth. I do love a good bowl of soup or a fresh salad, but put a piece of cake or a brownie in front of me and you have one happy girl. (Isn't that for everyone, though?)

Happy February! It just so happens that all of the things on my monthly wishlist also form a lovely outfit perfect for any upcoming Valentine's Day festivities. I love it when something works out that way. That. Dress. Is. So. Perfect. I think I seriously am in love with a garment right now. The line, the color scheme, the pattern - it is too beautiful for words. xo Eliza (Modcloth dress, Ban.do brooch, J. Crew pumps, Baublebar ring, Madewell bag)
