Snow White & The Hearts, Man...

Needless to say, we are super excited about the impending release of Snow White & The Huntsman.

Mixing together our favorite dark fairytale princess, with ass-kicking and lots of heavy metal armor and deliciously rich fabrics.... You already have us hooked! 

We are so inspired by the amazing costume and art design of this film, 
(Thank you very much to the legendary Colleen Atwood

Lets start from the top down shall we? 
As we try to play a little bit of Snow White & A little bit of The Dark Queen. 

So, first off it is sort of hard to talk about how fantastic Charlize Theron looks in this movie,
but obviously we are going to try.

The beautiful braided locks with the insane spiked crown?
Yes please.

We found these Lili Claspe fish bone braided headbands with bad-ass spikes and instantly bought one for each of us. (Shhh, don't tell Erin...) 

Plan on piling you hair in intricate braids, the more the better and wearing a few of these on top.

Now, we are going to need some serious armor, and where better to find that then at Armor Jewelry?

Now, we have been  in love before... But this jewelry is making it all feel new again. Stunningly feminine and totally tough at the same time, its like it was made for us.

One of these pieces could make any simple dress incredibly special.

Speaking of simple dresses, this little leather dress from Thankoon is KILLING us!! Sadly, it would also kill our wallets. But dreaming is good right? 

A more attainable dream is these sky-high spiked wedges from web-boutique dream emporium 

Nasty Gal, oh Nasty Gal, how we love you. 

And because we are not really evil queens, or huntsman at heart... How about a little vegan "leather" in the mix? Look like a bad ass with out hurting one living thing! 

This faux leather jacket from Urban Outfitters is totally Knight worthy. 

Least we forget our finger tips... A good silver is hard to resist. 

We have a lot of love for Chanel, Graphite. 

(Thanks NailNerd for the image) 

Thank you Kristin & Charlize for looking as amazing on the red carpet, as you do on the silver screen. 
So many great ways to work this look from head to pinky toes. 

XOXO, Thing-We-Heart

Thanks mom...we heart you! (last minute moms day're welcome procrastinators)

                      makes us cry every every time.  if you didn't you are a robot

It truly is the bestest, hardest, raddest, funnest, cutest, toughest, sleepiest most smile enducing, heart bursting job in the universe (that's right, we said it...UNIVERSE)

Our moms went through so...SO much for us (we may be angels now but you should have seen us in high school ...and after...sorry moms!) so it makes perfect sense for there to be a day to remind us to remind them how much we love them and are thankful for all they do for us.

Now you are probably asking..."We super love our mamas...but what should we get for them that's different from the usual roses?"   We are so glad you asked!   Here are our fave pics for our fave mamas.

(PS You should never feel pressure to buy anything!   Moms like snuggles, kisses, picnics, sleeping, 50 Shades of Grey...well they DO... cookies, sleep, breaky in bed....see if you are creative its even better)

                                                       Our fave macarons in the cutest box from Bottega Louie

But for those of you who LOVE an excuse to buy something super cute for the ones you on on....

Ok so obvi...every hard working, huge loving, tired mama needs to be pampered and feel as beautiful as she is...what better way then a trip to the one and only Dry Bar!  

Let her walk in with stingy hair and waltz out with bouncy waves or sleek sexy shine.   No one does it better.   Oh and lucky you last minute shopper...they do gift certs!   Done and done!

  Plus they will serve your mama tea, coffee or champers while she is getting gorge...hello!

From our fave FBF (fake boyfriend) Jonathan Adler is the cutest most user friendly paper weight on earth!   How freaking cute is this?!  Mom is going to suddenly become messy just so she has papers to put this on

Ok so there are FOR SURE at least 3 moms (we just happen to be 2 of them) who seriously freak for pale pink peonies!
 This stunningly GORGE arrangement is from my ultimate favorite lux company ever ever ever!  The Alchemist...super hard to explain but once you get it...YOU GET IT!   Nothing comes close to this company... Surprise your lady love, baby mama, or mom with this peony arrangement and she will squeal in delight.

Feel like giving mom some sweets but would rather make her a goodie?   She will be so in heaven with these ridiculously yummy salted caramel chocolate chip bars...  oh yeah you might want to read that again... salted caramel chocolate chip bars.  These are from Two Peas And Their Pod...

Best part about making her get to taste test them to make sure they are perfection!  You're welcome.   Recipe here

 Rather get your favorite chocoholic a lux chocolate instead?  Well we introduce you to the grand dame of salted chocolates, Valerie Confections.  Her salt and pepper dark chocolate boxes will have anyone squealing in delight...then hiding in closets so no ones steals her chocolates.

Hey dads?   Husbands??   This card will have your lady tryin to make a new bunny as soon as she reads it...yes...this is a good thing!

What super mom doesn't LOVE and amazing candle?  Better yet and amazing candle by the bath?
You can not go wrong..ever..with Jo Malone.  This Grapefruit is one of the best smelling candles on earth.  Its not at all what you expect.  Its perfection!

Thank you Jo Malone for making our houses smell divine!

 Loving these sweet and lemon-limey citrus gold drop earrings from a store we should own really,  Anthropologie.

These would be perfect with any outfit for yo mama...

So whether you send a card, flowers, bake a treat or give a present...just simply saying "I love you mom, Thank you for all you do and have always done" will be the gift she will cherish forever and ever...

Happy Mothers Day to all of you moms out there...thank you...we heart you!  

From Etsy ...of course

you're really creating a wedge between us...

So something really really special happened in the 90's...

"but you guys totally don't look old enough to remember the 90's"...."awe thanks!  you are soooooo sweet!"  We BARELY remember the 90's fyi...but one of the things we remember the most (well besides BH 9 and crushed velvet or combats with floral sundresses)  are the high heeled sneakers.

Yup...we may or may not have fallen victim to them.  I mean who remembers?  (we blocked it out).   But with out those ah-maze-ing shoes we would never have the HHS (high heeled sneaker) 2.0

We are insanely, like DIE for, hearting the wedge sneaker.  Bless you designers for your cute marriage of wedge and high top sneaks.

Die die die dying for these yummy fruit stripe gum Weakers (yup we are super smart when it comes to naming trends) from our FBF Marc Jacobs.  Dear gentlemen....our birthdays are both coming AND we wear almost the exact same size SOOOOOOOOOO
P.S Um baby daddies?  we made it SUPER easy for you...just click here to get them for us

Dear Isabel Marant...first your punched the fashion community in the face with your amazing slouch boots, studded jackets, nude cowboy-ish booties and ripped tees...then kicked us in the butt with these AMAZING shoes!!!  We hate you sooo much (in the most loving way of course)

Here is 1 of our many girl crushes wearing the black Isabel Marants...Anne...we heart you and your Weakers

Ok for those of you who love creepers and aren't quite buying the whole wedge deal...we found these cool kicks at the one and only (one of our favorite shops) Asos
Here is a deliciously cute blue and white version from Ash.  These would be rad with white skinnies or skinny army pants...or simply boyfriend cut offs.

Uggghhhh here is our fave of faves, Kate B rocking the crap out of the Isabels... I mean who the F can wear this outfit and get away with it effortlessly?  No one...just her oh and our other Kate...Miss Moss.

3 uber cute and sexy ways to wear this trend....but don't stop can wear them with soo much!
gorgeous Marc Jacobs girls

The first time we saw the OGs from Isabel Marant was in this photo of the cutie bean gorgeousness, Miranda Kerr, that I promptly sent to Miss Me for a drool partner.  How amazing is that outfit!?  and with the shoes??  Done and Done!

Oh Leandra....we heart you.  In fact everytime we dress ourselves or our babies we ask WWMRD (What Would Man Repeller Do)

Loved these Weakers soooo much from Topshop that we ordered a pair in black and are having a really hard time taking them off...
Oh hi crazy rad insanely hardcore bitchfest wedge monkey boot the F are you???  Wow!  And PS  Nasty Gal...we sooooo love you!

Yet another great example of a match made in fashion heaven...thank you Gods of the Schmata...we heart your new baby...Weakers
