Put a Bow on It

I don't know about you...but I'm a pretty little present! 

Color : Taupe

Color : Jet

Color : Hematite

Color : Black/Diamond
These Tasha Rhinestone Bow Headbands are available at Nordstroms both in store and online for $38.00.  Seem like a lot to spend on a headband?  It is and it isn''d be surprised what this can do to an outfit...that...and you'll look for excuses to wear it!  Don't like that headband of this one is that so far...I'm headache free!

It's easy to see why I made this recent purchase...I have to say even I'm getting sick of my pink obsession.  Don't worry...I'm not moving onto a new color obsession...I simply don't want to be seen as a one trick pony...I'm a horse of many different colors!


Nixon watches are pretty much the bomb...I'm sure I'd own more if they weren't so expensive...but comfort, quality and coolness don't come cheap!  Need a great every day watch...get a Nixon...don't know what to buy your man for his next birthday or holiday...get a Nixon!

*Nixon didn't pay me to say any of this!

Saddle Up

So, I could basically fit my phone, some lip gloss...a little coin purse and my keys...and we're done!  But come friggin cute is this?! 

See by Chloe
Small Leather Crossbody Bag
I wonder...if I was ballin and could afford to actually own all of my obsessions...would I still want them?  I'm guessing yes...but who knows.

Hi Friend

OK!  Neon obsession...check.  Bright colors just make me happy...and this bag makes me oober happy!

MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Totally Turnlock - Sia'
Python Embossed Crossbody Bag
I find myself "checking in" with this bag every time I'm in my local Nordstroms...and I mean every time.  I look at it...delight in its color...and then I stroke it's smooth texture all the while imagining how amazing it would be if it were mine!  Do I need another crossbody?  No.  I have two very nice in black and one in I've got my basics and I'm set.  This will just be a "friend" I visit when I'm in the area...

Sky High

Not even sure that I'll be able to walk in these bad boys...6 inches...I try to leave that up to the professionals...but I couldn't stop myself!  Now I find myself praying that I can pull off the task of walking in them!

Dolce Vita

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pink pumps...I would prefer I low heel...I'm talking just above a flat!  I've given up and given into what I now refer to as Sky High pumps...I used to be able to mob around in these bad boys but some where after 25 years of age my feet woke up and have been holding a permanent protest to anything over 2 inches!  Oh well...sometimes beauty is painful!

Fringe Benefits

Yes please!  This clutch is so nummy!

Suped Up Debutante Asymmetric Clutch
Henri Bendel

If this is the sort of bag debutantes are toting...sign me up to be one of them!  I'm guessing it was a good thing...for my wallet...that I didn't make it into Henri Bendel's while in NYC...something tells me that I'll have to plan ahead for my next trip out!

Child's Play

Don't count out the kids section for those select few items that work no matter what your size...

Girls Cluster Bead Bracelet
This little lovely brings me back to my reminds me of the fake salmon egg bait that my Step Dad had in his tackle box...I know that sounds strange but I loved fishing...that and I love just about anything hot pink!  Comes in other colors and in a cute necklace too!

OMG!  I thought I was going to be depressed for days when Kate Spade sold out of their Neon Pink Scout bag...

Kate Spade
Essex Scout
$295 - $445

I was waiting on a discount...I can't buy everything at full price...I love way too many things and I can't afford them all!

And then I stumbled upon this little lovely...

Cambridge Satchel Company
Fluro Pink
 Not as fancy gold hardware or finished edges...but is it hot pink...yup!  It's also made from high quality leather a tad more affordable!  It also just feels more relaxed...less buttoned up!  SOLD!

Pink Ice

In the Theory of Color Hot Pink is used to convey playfulness...

Crystal brûlée necklace



Crystal brûlée bracelet

For those of you who don't know...I'm obsessed with hot just makes me happy!  That's why I didn't hesitate to flag down a sales associate at J. Crew the minute I saw this amazing necklace in its display case...the bracelet must have been sold out because I would have bought it too!

Take Me Away!

I need a cozy cabin trip...and on that trip I'll need this FAB BAG!

Portland Collection
 So amazing.  Oh...and I need a bigger income!  This bag...expensive yes...but its also timeless...I'd argue an investment!

I declare a thumb war!

from Sacred Cow Division
Some of you might be thinking..."Ummm this is not FAB...what is this girl thinking?" and to that I say...COME ON!  Are you really that too cool for school to be a little dorky and have some fun?  I'm all about this...some times you find yourself traffic jams...waiting rooms...hello this rules!  It's a great gag gift, stocking stuffer, Secret Santa gift...what ever excuse you can's just fun!

Kiss Me Kate

Tubes of Goodness...and I'm not talking about sausage here people! It's supercalifragilipstick!  I fell in love with and immediately bought FUCHSIA and POP ART PINK.

Kate Spade & Poppy King

available in stores & online
Photos just don't do this product justice...the packaging is even have to go in and see it for yourself...besides it's an excuse to be surrounded by the amazingness that is Kate Spade! 

If you are familiar with Poppy King's Lipstick Queen line of lipsticks these are as amazing as those only instead of being really matte these are like a lipstick with a hint of gloss...super smooth on the butter!  Try not to fall in love...I dare you!

Fur cereal?  I got an email from Neiman's titled TREND PUMPS...and when I clicked through and scrolled down to the third row...there it took my breath away...NO JOKE!  Even the sequin Louboutin's next to it couldn't distract me...and I LOVE SEQUINS!

Brian Atwood
Maniac Calf Hair Pump

If these were mine I'd seriously seek out an event where my feet would be front and center...I'm guessing that would involve me being on stage or something of the sorts...and I'm totally comfortable with that...especially if I'm in these shoes!

Jazz it up!

Sometimes life gets boring...your wardrobe is not exempt from that.  Even the most boring t-shirt can be classed up...don't demote it to your gym or sleep t line up!  Jazz up that tired old top with something like this...

Harriet Grey
from SEEDSTORE San Francisco 
I've worn mine with a simple heather grey cotton v-neck, nice dark or black jeans and black flats.  I've also done it up with a silk top, skinny jeans and black pumps! Add a black leather jacket for Fall!

All that glitters!

If I lived a jet set life...if I was as fabulous as I imagine I am in my head...pretty much if I was a baller, I'd travel with this and it would be my carry on!

It's still fun to dream...

Ugh. I'm sure it was for the best...but...I can't believe I missed out on this one!

Rebecca Minkoff
Navajo Stud Frame Bag
From Daily Candy's Swirl, a flash sale site...and it was gone in a flash! I've been trying to nail this bad boy down since I saw it on the Rebecca Minkoff website.  Snooze you lose I guess.

Take Note!

So genius!  I'm loving this trend of I'm not what you think I know...normal everyday objects disguising our laptops...or a clutch that looks like a book but it's a clutch (Kate Spade)!   

Cooperative Trompe L'Oeil
Laptop Case
Super cute...super fun...sign me up cauz I'm obsessed!  Only available online...and no, I didn't get any incentive to blog about this!

Let's get some shoes!

So nice I bought it twice!  I'm a firm believer...if you love something why not have it in multiple colors?  I've even gone as far as buying multiples of the same item in the same color...I loved it so much I didn't want to be without if something happened to it!

Jeffrey Campbell

Jeffrey Campbell
I hope you are not too much in love...these are last years shoes...and oddly not too many complements last year and this year I can't go a day without someone gushing over them!?!  Find your favorite whatever and rock em!

Don't judge a book by it's cover.

OMG!  If I had the iPad 2 I'd totally buy this as its case!  And that's saying a lot...I'm in love with a bunch of iPad cases...Rebecca Minkoff for starts.  Still this one for me takes the cake! 

DODOcase for iPad2
Foolin theifs on the train..."What?! I have nothing of value, I only have my book!" ha!

Bag it up!

This bag is goes with just about everything and can pretty much be carried year round...and here's why.

Sepia Zip Bag
1. The color.
2. It's casual yes, but still looks the part with business casual.
3. Um, do you have eyes?  This bag is friggin ah-mazing!

OK, so I will say that I personally would carry this bag Spring, Summer and Fall...Winter for some reason I want to go, navy or burgundy...not sure why? 

Maybe the best part...the leather is soft and mushy...and will only look better the more you "love" on it!

Love this!

Zodiac Cuff
I never like the jewelry offered for my sign, Aquarius, unless it's like $500.00 and then I'm just not really that into reppin my sign!  I love that this is simple and I can's the Age of Aquarius!

H is for Hippo

So this toothbrush holder is totally cute...but my husband and I have an electric you're probably thinking well she didn't buy it then...oh yeah no...I totally did!

Hippo Toothbrush Holder
I can and will justify any see my husband loves hippos...and one day we'll have have teeth!  For now we use it for our guests and our travel toothbrushes!  Ha!

"Her feet killin her, I call it shoeicide." Thank you Fabolous...your lyrics to You Be Killin Em perfectly describe the amazingness that is this shoe.

Obsessed with this shoe...I am...but I'd never wear it.  Props to the girl...or guy (who knows) who can and will, me I'd use it as art!  Walking in these shoes I imagine would be an art! I love the idea that shoes are becoming more can someone just make me a pair of hot pink pumps that don't look like hooker heels...oh and can they be comfortable!?  A girl can dream!

Happy Birthday To Me!

So, in a few short months (eight) I'll be turning 30...I can't say that I'm worried or dreading the day...but to be on the safe side I've decided that this will be my "How can it be a bad Birthday with a gift like this?" gift!

Starburst Necklace by Janna Conner
14K yellow gold with Diamond
 I've been lusting after it for years, and now that I've found it at a more reasonable price (less than listed above) I'm OK with letting the hubby know it's what I want for the BIG Three O!  Dare I say I can't wait for my 30th Birthday now?!

Men at Work

Well women too...but I'll be honest...when I see this I think of my Dad going off to work or of road construction workers from back in the you remember seeing women doing anything other than holding the STOP and SLOW signs?
Stanley Lunchbox w/ Vacuum Bottle
We've come a long way...and now we can look like "one of the boys" from the "old boys club"!

From the Farmers Market to the Beach...or to Yoga...I'm not really a fan of Yoga...this bag is your Carry-All bag for the Summer.
Raffia Beach Bag
I mean I've seen others like it...but honestly this is the best looking one that didn't cost upwards of $100...sheesh!  Going to Mexico this Summer...go on the hunt for your own "Market/Beach Bag"...I'll bet you'll find a deal!  Happy shopping...happy Summer!

Flip Out

La-la-la-la-la-la-love these!  Though, I'm not surprised...they are Jeffrey Campbell after all!  If you're new to my blog...I LOVE JC!
available at Nordstrom
I think what I most like about these is that they are still simple flip flops...yet elevated.  Lets say you were in a wedding and wearing uncomfortable heels all day...come the reception what a fun gift to get from the Bride...saves your feet after a long you can get down on the dance floor and party...and still look super cute!

Me, I'm going to get them just because!

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Lawn Flamingo?

Forget the front lawn, I've got to have this clutch in transit with me!  I know I can't get it at full price though, purely based off of the look on my husbands face when his eyes found the price tag.  Sigh.

I suppose if it's meant to be I'll land it on some sort of amazing sale...please let it be meant to be.

Are you kidding me?!  Have you read any of my other entries...a few include yeah I needed this!

Kikkerland Design
Freakin Park Life...I can't go in or around this store I swear...I have to buy something every time I'm there!  Luckily my hubby swooped this one up for me...I think because I've been sick for what seems like forever and he wanted to cheer me up!  So sweet that man!

No Sun on My Shoulders

Is it too much?  I'll soon see for myself...this lovely is on its way to me from the UK via

ASOS Oversized '70s Floppy Straw Hat
I feel like it's hard to find a cute sun hat that doesn't cost an arm and a  Seriously people I don't have a $100+ to spend on a GD hat!  I need that money for the plane ticket so I have some place fabulous to wear the hat!  Chello?!

Paper or Plastic

Don't judge, my Rebecca Minkoff bag needed a matching wallet!  After all, my Hobo International wallet has been loved for about 4 years now.

Reg. $165.00
Sale $56.00's new MYHABIT flash sale site launched...because I'm in the Amazon database (shocker) I was invited to the launch where I would also save $10.00 on my first purchase.  Even tax and free shipping!  So the wallet was $66 less $10...really a no-brainer!  I heart saving $$$!
