DIY weekend at Casa Pulitzer

OK, so this weekend is DIY extreme makeover home edition at Casa Pulitzer;)  Not sure how extreme it is actually going to be but I have HIGH hopes!!  Mac is going to be in the backyard with fresh mulch and adding "pops" of color to our jungle.  I am (in lieu of the office which needs a little more lead time) going to wallpaper the guest bathroom with family photos and things I deem worthy of decking the walls with.  I started pulling photos, framed canvases, and post cards last night!  This image has been in my idea bin for quite some time and I decided it is TIME to install this in my life:)

Wish me luck!!
Have a GREAT weekend!!!

I love when I feel this excited about working;)
It is all about the little things!!

Trend Spotting

I already mentioned that lots of trends are "born" at Coachella.  This year was no different as the desert beauties were on parade with what will be summers hottest looks.  Cut off denim shorts ruled, especially when paired with flowy tops!  Rompers in neutral colors and small floral prints were a huge hit and perfect for the HOT desert air: ( or the HOT FL air)  :)  Lots of BRIGHT sun glass frames in fun shapes and oversized metallic frames.  I also noticed tons of gladiator sandals like the ones I scored from Zara and patent versions in neon colors.  Looks like this summer should be full of FUN pieces to beat the heat.  No exception at KP.  I have all the trends coming in my current deliveries so the FL girls can be spot on with what is happening in fashion:)

I have tons of great pieces in right now perfect to impress at SUNFEST!!!

Darbster-Have You Been to WPB Hipest Vegan And Raw Spot

Check this out!!  I could hardly believe my ears when a friend told me about a new vegan hot spot right here in West Palm Beach.  Those of you that live in more progressive parts of the world must think this sounds CRAZY but there is NOTHING like this here.  We are so deprived of the things that make a healthy lifestyle convenient.  Sure we have a Whole foods (20 minutes away) but a quick place to grab a healthy lunch, brunch, or a family dinner!!!!  I am super excited. 
I am not a vegan,  just more a foodie that really enjoys ALL types of food:)

I would love to hear what the locals think of the spot??
We are heading over for brunch on Sunday:)

p.s this is what I will be wearing ALL weekend relaxing!!!!!

You Don't Know Jacques

I am LOVING my new go to color for my nails and toes!!  OPI's new muddy taupe color they call "You Don't Know Jacques" is so spring 2010.  I like mine with a top coat for a little shine to finish off the look!  I think it only works on short nails but perfect for any pedicure.  It works with all my metallic sandals that are starting to replace their ballerina slipper neighbors in the front of my shoe racks:)

Forever Young - Coachella Style

I must admit I have Coachella envy, I would so enjoy attending this massive music festival for two reasons: cutting edge  bands and people watching!!  Lots of trends are born at this outdoor California mega event.  If you have never heard of this event, you can get more info by clicking here.  I am also obsessed with Jay Z and his remix of "Forever Young".  Yep you heard me right I love Jay Z. He manages to cater to almost every audience and this is a prime example of how he rolls.  We call it "daddys song" in our family because it is hands down Macs current tune on repeat!!
I guess I should not be so SHOCKED he STOLE the show (and this is a tough show to "steal") with this rendition a la Beyonce
Thank heavens for You Tube, I am so treking to Cali for this dream!!!!  2011???

p.s. to fully "get it", you should imagine the crowd was over 75,000strong

Ahhhh an entrie generation celebrating their youth, remember we are all young at heart! I am still 18 right LOL

A Night With The Natives

This weekend is going to be tough to top for a while!!  My spring 2010 runway show was a smashing success, phew!  I showed the collection at Palm Beaches chicest ocean resort, The Omphoy "O" Bar
We packed the house with over 300 guests and closed the place down after dancing all night and lounging in oceanfront cabanas.   DJ Adam Lipson put on and AMAZING all Gutter Boys music set that kept the scene in full motion:)!!

Some of Palm Beaches most notorious natives rocked the runway and showcased the talented young designers I represent.  They strutted down a seaside garden runway created with live coastal linear arrangements that were adorned with twig size dried bamboo and miniature glowing lanterns hanging to create the ultimate evening spring stroll.
"O" Bar created a signature cocktail "The Native" that was refreshing and perfect for a Florida evening under the stars. (recipe will be posted in the next few days)

I cannot express how GRATEFUL I am for all my clients and friends who came out to support me,  my boutique and my vision for keeping fashion FUN, Fabulous, and affordable...I am truly overwhelmed and honored that so many of you are loving what I do!!

Remember to do what you love and love what you do!

For me that means immerseing myself in fashion and design, nurture my LOVE of music and dance, and enjoying every minute with my children:)
KP Time is a good Time

Nanny's Peach Ice Cream

Not quite sure why but what spring really does is get me EXCITED for summer! One of my fondest childhood summer memories is peach ice cream on my nanny and papas big southern porch.   This weekend got me dreaming of my summers in Fairhope Alabama and that insanely delicious peach ice cream!!

Cannot wait for Summer 2010


  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large ripe peaches, peeled, halved, pitted, and cut into bite-size chunks


In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar.
In a large saucepan, bring the cream and milk to a simmer over low heat. Whisking constantly, slowly pour the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture until combined; return the combined mixture to the saucepan. Cook over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until the custard has thickened enough to coat the back of the spoon, stirring constantly. Immediately strain the custard into a bowl. Set the bowl in a larger bowl filled with ice water to cool, stirring occasionally.
Stir the lemon juice and vanilla into the cooled custard. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions, adding the peach chunks halfway through the churning process.

*hand churn it like my nanny did for BEST results;)

Keep Calm and Carry On

I found this little canvas here and had to share!  What a wonderful message to remind yourself of daily!!  If your life is anything like mine and is chocked full of non stop action, you might also enjoy this little reminder:)
The world seems to get more and more complicated as I get older but I know God does not give us anything we cannot handle and EVERYTHING happens for a reason!!
Just "Keep Calm and Carry on" and it will all be ok;)

J Crew preview

 J Crew 2010 looks like it is going to appeal to a lot of KP girls:)   It's a lot of luxe in the form of sequins, jewels and feathers, mixed with the wools and tweeds you expect for fall. There are a lot of tone on tone color combinations like amber, brown and blush with pops of "exclamation colors" such as peacock and plum.The utility look continues as well as the  "military" which mixes ball skirts and army jackets. Some models even had twigs in their hair! There was definitely a city girl visits the country feeling for fall.

Palm Beach girls love to fantasize about fall (because it will still be 100 degrees here) , So I thought why not do it now while there is a slight chill in our air!

If you want to see more, check out one of my favorite blogs here  for more pics from the shoot!!
