Things I Realized in the Vegas Airport

  • Valley of the Dolls > Twilight
  • McQueen shoes > McQueen scarves
  • I need a massage
  • TCBY just tastes better at the airport

Calm Before the Storm

I'm laying in my big comfy bed in my suite. watching the Today Show and looking out my window at the strip. The RAC craziness will soon begin.

kisses from Vegas,

National Eating Disorder Awareness Week

February 22-28 is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. It's a good week... exactly 12 years ago a college friend took me to get screened for an eating disorder. I've been a little overweight and a lot underweight, and trust me, being a few pounds heavier is a hell of a lot better than worrying about food all of the time! Love your body... it's the only one you've got!

Happy Little Things

It's amazing how happy new pillows and some face wash can make me.

Erickson Beamon Scores For Target

Ok, so I have to be honest... I have no idea who Erickson Beamon is. But I do know that this jewelry duo did a cheaper line for Target that is, well, it's pretty damn good! I've always favored accessories over actual articles of clothing. And the bigger the better. Their line is fun, bright, bold and even a little cheeky (see lobster necklace).

Behold, some of my favorites...

clutter ball ring

seed bead lobster necklace

jeweled flower cuff

jeweled chain bracelet

and it's all in Target stores now through the end of June.

Fashion Week

Lots of prints from DVF, especially animal
Marc looks a little like McQueen
Carolina Herrera has a metallic romance
And everyone loved fur!

It will be a dark and moody fall, for sure.

You Have a Panda Head

Have your read Panda Head magazine yet? It's the brainchild of style maven Morgan (and her crew of super creative minds) and is awesome in that "damn I wish I was that creative and knew how to put it all together into one pretty little package" type of way. The latest edition is online now and you'd be a fool not to check it out. Click here to see what I am talking about.

kisses for tuesday,

Band of Outsiders

Favorite new men's designer: Band of Outsiders
How come: preppy chic, with a nerdy edge
See for yourself...

Late Night Dancing

Flipping through a thrift store magazine
She plays the drums, I'm on tambourine
Bet your, your bottom dollar on me

What to Do This Weekend

So it looks like this weekend is all about Valentine’s Day… if you are into that sort of thing. If not, then you should just dance around your room naked while listening to your favorite band and drinking wine straight out of the bottle. Or you can go hug your friends and tell them how awesome they are.

There are these style happenings too:

Lettie Gooch is moving and having a huge sale to clear our merchandise. Fall and winter items are up to 90% off, a $50 and under rack, jewelry 30% off, and more. Sale lasts all weekend, so check it out.

Rue 14 is also cleaning house with an additional 20% off all sale items.

Crystal City Couture starts today and runs through the 28th. Located in the new retail space at 2450 Crystal Drive (at the corner of 23rd and Crystal Drive), this free event will feature sample sales, runway and trunk show from local designers, boutiques and area salons.

30 Means Amazing

Let's just say that my 30th birthday was amazing. The best one yet! My cheeks hurt from smiling and for an entire week it was nothing but friends, celebrations and awesomeness. My old roommate in Italy came to stay with me for a few days and 25 of us packed up and headed off to Atlantic City for the night. There was a dance-off, a giant cake, gambling, and an outfit I am pretty sure I am going to regret in a few years.

Naughty or Nice?

She is 40, he is barely 24. Is this picture tantalizing or just tacky?
(and for the record, I love anything with Chuck Bass in it)

Melt My Heart

Love is melting...

The First Ladies

Michelle Obama is on the cover of Vogue. Bar Rafaeli is on the cover of Sports Illustrated (swimsuit edition). Which one is a trend setter and which one is just a trend?

Whooo, Whooo

My cold and I are still here. It's just been a bit hectic at work as we count down the days to our big conference in Vegas.
Here's a little something to discuss amongst yourself: owl-themed clothes. yes or no?

Friday, February 6, 2009


Hi, I am off to Atlantic City for the grand finale of my week long birthday celebration. I'll be back tomorrow, unless I win big... then it's off to Bora Bora.

Just make you to see who you are kissing before handing over your money.

New Eyes

I love buying new frames, but don't love to wear glasses. Just read here. But the other week I was in the glasses type of mood and went to see what See had to offer. They are big and bold and sort of eat up my face. And like all things, it will take me a bit to warm up to them. But they are also different, and different we like.

Housekeeping Notes

- If you look to the right you will see that I twitter now. Not sure how long it will last!

- Tomorrow my old roomie from Italy is coming for the weekend!

- I am getting a root canal in the morning. Those hurt, right?

- My niece is cuter than your niece.

Skirting the Issue

When work is busy and I am stressed out, all I want to wear is comfy sweatpants and a tee-shirt. What I do is the exact opposite... I get even more dressed up than usual because somehow I think it makes me more motivated.
Who knows if I am right. Placebo effect?
