Pick of the Week: Gold + Sparkles

Friday, December 16, 2011

Seychelles Exclamation Point Pump, $95 (also on sale at Zappos for $75.99 in a few sizes!)

I love the festive feel of these heels.  With their sparkly golden hue and pretty bow they would be great for a holiday party - or a cheerful addition to any outfit.  Maybe a great way to dress up plaid!

Irresistible Illustrations

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Has anyone else noticed (and fallen in love with) the pretty illustrations accompanying the Q&A's in the Dear Lucky section of Lucky magazine?  I've had those pages dog-eared in every issue for the past few months, and finally this month remembered to actually look for the name of the artist. They are from Lauren Friedman whose blog, My Closet in Sketches, I next discovered is a veritable feast for the eyes with all her fabulous illustrations.

Pick of the Week

Friday, December 9, 2011

I have a serious slight obsession with lace.  Combined with my high heel addiction these fabulous shoes are practically screaming to be added to my shoe closet - especially since they are on sale!  The lace pattern is such a fun addition to a basic black pump.

Vince Camuto Sarika Black Lace Pumps

I found these beauties on sale for $79.99 at Dillards, or if they don't have your size (they are sold out of mine!) they are also on sale for $89.99 at Vince Camuto.

Golden Gifts

Thursday, December 8, 2011

I have been crazy busy this week trying to finish up end of semester projects and haven't had time for much else.  However, when I woke up this morning and saw that the sun had finally decided to grace our part of Virginia with it's presence (after several unbearably dreary, rainy days) it seemed like the perfect day to put up the golden gifts post I started working on before finals.  I have somewhat of a love-hate thing going on with gold, but lately gold and I have been in one of the love stages of our relationship and I am constantly finding myself drawn to items with it's shiny finish.

Pick of the Week: Holiday Party Heels

Friday, December 2, 2011

Today's High Heeled Pick is actually several pairs of heels, all from BHLDN.  I think BHLDN is mainly geared towards weddings, but holiday parties are another great reason to get dressed up this time of year.  Any of these heels would be a perfect addition to a holiday party outfit.

These last two pairs don't really fit with the holiday party theme, but I fell in love with them and couldn't leave them out!

I don't know why I like these so much.  Honestly, I initially clicked on these because I thought they were ridiculous, but the more I looked at them I decided they just stepped over that fine line from crazy to being fabulous.

I can't think of any occasion besides walking down the aisle to wear these booties, but I love them anyways.  The satin ribbon in the back is beautiful.  Too bad they weren't around in green a couple years ago or I could have worn them for my wedding!
