overly trendy

15 Dec

I’m usually not overly trendy with my fashion, but I sometimes try to incorporate a thing or two here and them into my mostly classic and slightly preppy wardrobe. Insert wedge sneakers. I’ve been on the fence about them for months, but about 2 weeks ago I ordered some. I wore them yesterday, and was instantly in love! They’re comfy, hip and dare I say…kind of sexy. I got a few compliments on them too!! I went cheapy (in case I really didn’t like them) and got the gold-ie ones from target online. Has anyone else tried this trend?

ladies’ tea recap

ladies' tea recap

Our ladies’ tea was absolutely fabulous! It was a great experience that I plan to repeat again in a few weeks, this time going with some ladies from my family. It was all shades of femininity and luxury…yet simple.

I’m a sucker for an accessory

Stainless Steel Hammered Tumbler, Gold – 16 fl oz.

Any kind of accessory really…and this is such a gorgeous yet functional one…I couldn’t pass it up! Those who know me, know that I can’t survive a day with a coffee and my coke zero (with a straw of course!!), otherwise I wouldn’t make it through the day. So if you have to drink something that makes your breathe most assuredly un-pleasant, then at least it can come out of something really cute!

paperless post

15 Nov

As I have indicated in a  previous post ‎, I am a purist in a lot of different ways.  One additional way is that I love, love, love snail mail notes. Handwritten thank you notes, typed invitations, or even just a little note to say hello! My first job ever was at a famous card store, and I continued to work there part-time for years (way too long in my opinion now!). No wonder I love an actual card!! However, in the age of technology  it’s becoming more and more old-fashioned for me to send out my note cards. There are still some people who appreciate my cards by mail, ie older people, but for the more modern people….I introduce you to Paperless Post. It’s like actual fabulous cards, that you can send electronically (not anything like a bloody e-card…blahhh).  They even have Kate Spade cards, and anyone who knows me knows that I heart Kate Spade (even some Jack Spade pieces…my babe just got a cutie Jack Spade tote bag). And so, if only for the K Spade pieces, I am very happy for this new find of mine. Make sure you check it out!

a seemingly unlikely pair

11 Nov

I hope I am not the only one who has heard of the alliance of Target with Neiman Marcus for a holiday collection. I am too stoked! Anyone who knows me knows that I L.O.V.E. Target, and even though my wallet doesn’t fully appreciate Neiman Marcus, I still manage to get them to play together every once in a while! LOL! But this holiday collection…talk about mixing high and low. And the few items that I’ve seen from the collection…simply gore!

a love of love

Pride and prejudice is one of my favorite movies, it is one of my guilty pleasures! I love any period movie really, but the romantic ones have a special place in my heart. I love the pomp and circumstance, the fantasy, and the idealism. It allows me a brief reprieve from life, and an opportunity to dream of a different time. What’s your guilty pleasure?
