Time for another edition of Friday is for Favorites, my weekly series where I become a rebel, and break all of my own rules of design cohesiveness to which I normally adhere on the Bubby and Bean blog.  No themes, trend collections, or matching aesthetics here.  Just a random collection of things I happen to be loving on this very Friday.

1. Gorgeous, sparkly amber colored quartz.
2. Pretty + elegant silk dupioni clutch.
3. I am loving J. Crew's vibrant Fall '11 collection.
4. Sequined pillows are kinda awesome.
5. Super cool custom cabinet knob DIY.
6. Ridiculously cute 'About the Benjamins' heels from

What are your plans for this weekend?  I'll be buried in making wedding invitations, which technically should have been done and sent last week (oops).  And depending on how Bubby dog is feeling (he's had two seizures in the last two weeks :( - so we're being very cautious), we may head down to Lollapalooza.  It's one of my favorite festivals, and we're really lucky because the fiance gets free passes through his band.  Over the past few years, I've made a tradition of photographing my favorite fashion looks there and tweeting them from the fest.  If you're a twitter follower, keep your eyes out tomorrow evening for live tweets from backstage!

I hope that you have a wonderful Friday!  See you tomorrow morning for this week's edition of Saturday Morning Daydreams.
