Year: 2012

Two Thousand Twelve


Looking back, 2012 was a pretty eventful, exciting and rewarding year, although stressful at times. For one, I started this blog – and one of my resolutions for the New Year is to put more effort into my blog, add some new features, and potentially revamp the site a bit.

When it comes to making resolutions, I hate that I generally pick pretty mainstream ones, like eat healthier, save money, read more, etc. But I think they’re so mainstream because they’re good goals to set. This time around, I’m especially excited by the prospect of a clean slate. I’m determined to keep to my resolutions in 2013, those being exercise more, save money, make lists, start planning outfits in advance again, get more sleep, wake up earlier, and read more, to name a few big ones. What are some of your resolutions?

I look forward to spending 2013 with all of you. Happy New Year! xoxo

Stock Up Now – Winter

With the start of December comes the start of a new, warmer clothing season and a (almost – December 21st) new season all together. Come late December, I’ll be adding to my current wardrobe to get me through until March. I’ve come up with a trendy, versatile and cozy list of essentials for the winter months, along with some of my favorite examples of the pieces.

What pieces will you be buying this winter?

P.S. Sorry for being away again! Last week was bad & busy. To recover, I’ve spent my last two weekends indulging in some retail therapy – I bought this chair which you can pretty easily guess I’m obsessed with (from reading this post), and a dress for the holiday season.

Showcase: Target-Neiman Marcus Collection

Just when we thought the famed Target designer collaborations couldn’t get any better, Target announced their holiday partnership with Neiman Marcus. It’s a well-rounded collection, featuring clothes and accessories for everyone, home décor, and gifts aplenty. These six things are my picks from the bunch, separated into two lists – things to give to friends and hostesses alike, and things to treat yourself to this holiday season (the collection goes live tomorrow).

To Give

cookie cutters


1. Band of Outsider Cookie Cutters: Probably the cutest, quirkiest, most original cookie cutters I’ve ever seen – sure to be a hit with anyone who loves to bake.

dessert plates


2. Tracy Reese Dessert Plates: Perfect for the classy hostess (they’re trimmed with 18K gold).

metallic pouches


3. Marc Jacobs Pouches: No one would be disappointed if they found this multi-funtional metallic leather clutch/cosmetic pouch under the tree. No one.

To Get

lace top

4. Lela Rose Lace Top: So gorgeous and feminine, it could easily transition from dressy to casual and pair with everything in your closet. For bonus points, pair with one of the aforementioned pouches.

studded gloves

5. Brian Atwood Studded Gloves: The classic opera glove suddenly became un-stuffy. Perfect for all black-tie events this holiday season (or for days when you just feel like playing dress-up).

piped blazer

6. Thom Browne Blazer: The most perfectly classic blazer ever. This piped wool one will take you well into the early months of spring.

Currently Obsessed With: Printed Pants

patterned pants

I have to say, the printed pants trend is growing on me. I used to shudder a little when I saw legs clad in hip-to-foot pattern, but I’ve come to embrace the non-traditional denim as an alternative to printed skirts. I don’t have any pairs myself (colored I do have, just not patterned), but I think I’ll add some to my collection come springtime (polka dots, anyone?). Although, I couldn’t help but notice how many fabulous pairs I was finding as I browsed a few websites. See my favorites above.

Infinity and Beyond


The scarf – perhaps the epitome of fall/winter style, it adds a cozy, casual vibe to anything you pair it with. I don’t wear them nearly as often as I’d like to (even though I have quite the collection), and I think I’m going to start (keep your eyes out). Despite my abundance of scarves, from infinity to regular to silk, I couldn’t help but fall in love with these as I browsed the internet.
