Well, hello there! Welcome to Bows & Sparrows. My name is Erin and I'm a writer, a coffee addict, an ellipses abuser, a list maker, a hater of cardio workouts, a believer that my dog is the best dog ever, a hair twirler, a graphic designer...and more.
Part of the thrill I get from blogging is being able to share all the talented designers, fabulous boutiques, covetable products, stunning homes and style-savvy fashionistas that I discover - whether they be from the city where I reside (Sacramento, CA) or from halfway around the globe.
I'm glad you stopped in and...I hope you'll take off your coat, pull up a chair and stay for awhile. Oh, and if you're feeling inspired, leave me a comment or shoot me an email introducing yourself - I'd love to meet the virtual you!
Without the lovely images featured on Bows & Sparrows, this blog just wouldn't be the same. I do my best to credit each image or photo I use, and will gladly remove one if requested to do so - just let me know.
If you have yet to see the J. Crew fall 2010 women's lookbook, get your ass over here and check it out. It's truly awesome. There's a short video discussing the idea behind the shoot, which Jenna, the shoot's creative director, describes as "Edie Beale goes to summer camp." The collection features mostly earthy tones and nudes with punctuations of color - predominantly the lips of the models, who are sporting Funny Face lipstick by NARS.
