Gallery Wall: Framed Artwork Under $80

framed-print If you have been following my Instagram over the last couple of months, you probably know that I have been curating and constantly rearranging my gallery wall. It took a long while to get it right, but I am completely in love with it. I would cover my whole wall from ceiling to floor if I could, and I haven’t completely ruled that possibility out yet. One thing is for sure, artwork can get expensive, and not even to mention the framing on top of that. I have found 10 framed pieces above that cost $80 or less all together!

#8 is an inspiration for some DIY I have been wanting to do. I have tons of Laduree and Hermes bags that I have saved and was thinking of framing one of each. It’s an inexpensive and beautiful piece of art. Plus, the bag can be something unique to you or represent a certain memory from a trip or a gift given. Besides trying this DIY, I will be sure to get this Happy Menocal piece because I love her work, leopard print, and the fabulous price. In fact, most all of these are such great prices for framing included. Please note #10 does not sell framed, but I figured the price was inexpensive enough to equal $80 or less when framed. Get the details of these pieces below:

Gray Malin Phone Cases

gray-malin-phone-cases So, after months and months, I am back on the blog today. My day job has been putting me a little at sorts with the blog. But, nonetheless, I am trying to get back to posting and curating about things I love and find exciting. After seeing these adorable Gray Malin iPhone cases this week, I knew I had to share them. I have been a long time lover of Gray Malin, if you have see my gallery wall here, and other works of his around my home. Now, I can’t wait to carry a little piece of his work around with me all the time! Shopbop is now carrying Gray Malin art + accessories – even shoes! I’m so obsessed with anything with flamingos at the moment – especially this Gray Malin piece + this inflatable flamingo from Shopbop. Don’t these items just scream summer? See iPhone 6 covers listed below:

As you have probably heard, I am so ecstatic for J.Crew to be arriving in Savannah, and so excited to be co-hosting their grand opening event this Wednesday evening at the new location at 201 W. Broughton St. from 6-8pm. J.Crew has always been a favorite brand of mine because they have something for any & every occasion – a pencil skirt for work, a tee for the weekends, a cocktail dress, great staple shoes – you name it, they have it. I adore the new fall arrivals and feel like there is something for every woman – like this staple dress for work, the perfect go-to pant, great button downs like these, a dressy top, fun pumps, great loafers, etc.

Come check out the new J.Crew location at 201 W. Broughton St. this Wednesday, September 10th, from 6-8pm, for sips, snacks, a live DJ, and shopping of the fall arrivals. Here is a peek of my top favorites of the newest J.Crew items below. I promise there is so much more to see! Don’t forget to RSVP to if you plan on stopping by the grand opening celebration. I hope that everyone can come. XXO, Stefanie

Garden & Gun Korean Ribs

korean-ribs After a fabulous birthday weekend spent in Bluffton, SC, I retired home wanted to spend some time in the A/C eating some comfort food on Labor Day. My boyfriend and I are big fans of Asian-fusion, and after he sent me this recipe last week, I knew I had to give it a stab (literally). I always love to cook, but have been even more excited about it recently because someone gave me these amazing Shun Knives for my birthday. Now I feel so official – my old knives were kind of sad and getting dull. This Shun Knife above literally cut through the slab of ribs like butter. These ribs were slightly spicy, sweet, and delicious. I used pork baby back ribs – but would like to try a beef rib next time. To find the ingredients, I went to a local Korean market to get the Korean Red Chili Flakes and the Gochujang paste. I discovered Gochujang is essentially chili paste. But, I did some research online and saw that Annie Chun brand makes a Gochujang sauce, and Food52 has these Korean BBQ sauces – I think I would like to try one of these as well next time. If you like Korean flavors and ribs, I definitely recommend this recipe served with a side of sticky rice and asian salad. We didn’t take an “after” picture because they were just too good to not dig in :)

Bar Cart Styling

society_social_bar_cart When I first heard about the debut of Society Social via Glitter Guide in 2011, I immediately knew I had to have The Madison Mixer bar cart in my next home. Not to mention my admiration for Society Social‘s inception story and the fact owner Roxy was raised in her families furniture factory (and also has a taste for all things feminine and sparkly). Well, when I moved in to my new home this past Spring – this bar cart was one of my first orders to fill the space. I am just getting a long to posting about this lovely piece, but I have also been styling it more recently (and have switched some things out thanks to my visit to Furbish Studio last week). What do you think?

A Trip to Furbish Studio

furbishstudio-entrance This week, my mom and I made an annual trip up to Durham, North Carolina. As we were crossing over I-95 towards Raleigh/Durham, it dawned on me that one of my favorite online home boutiques, Furbish Studio, is based in Raleigh. After a quick glance at Google Maps, I realized this was not out of our route at all and we HAD to stop. I am currently decorating a new place – so Furbish has been majorly on my radar as of late. Originally, I learned about Furbish Studio through the blogosphere (shocker) by means of reading owner Jamie’s blog, I SUWANNEE. At this year’s rewardStyle Conference, I actually met Jamie and her assistant briefly over drinks with Ellen. One glance at Jamie’s elephant bag charm, and I knew anything from her store would be equally as bright, fun, and intriguing. I mean come on, how amazing is the entrance + pink door? I was so glad to get to see all of their amazing products in person, and if you’re debating anything online, get it – because it is even better in person!

A bit of what I found:

{An abundance of Pinatas on Trays}


{Foo DogsStaffordshire Dogs, + Happiness Jars}


{+ more pinatas…and cute cocktail plates}


{Cozy Teepee with Cheetah Pillows}

My favorite thing about Furbish is all the framed artwork that you can get for an affordable price! After starting to design a gallery wall, I have learned how expensive framing is. I bought this framed Teil Duncan (Charleston artist) piece that is framed and signed for $80 total – I don’t think you can beat that! See my favorite Furbish artwork below:
