Thanksgiving Lesson

I am not a huge Gwyneth fan, but I'll give it to the girl, she had a hell of a lesson in her Goop newsletter today. Especially for everyone who is experiencing some family drama today... and since it's Thanksgiving who isn't? Just drink lots of wine!

What a Lovely Watch You Have

Gilt Fuse has Freelook watches. I just ordered one and couldn't be more excited. Like opening your stocking on Christmas morning excited. I have been looking for a new watch since I was living in Italy... more than two years ago! My requirements included: big, masculine, shiney, and sturdy. (kinda like my men... hee hee)

It sort of looks like this... except with a steel band.

and I may or may not have included a gift note to myself in the package.

Love and Magazine

Hiding inside from the rain, I snuggled with my current steady relationship - W magazine. I knew it was love (or lust?) when my eyes saw this ad. Sunny yellow dress - yes please. Red bangle bracelets - always. Strappy sandals gilded with flowers - sign me up. Blue sky, ocean... ok I will stop now.
*bonus points if you know what designer it's for

Extra Credit

An email just popped into my inbox from Ru La La saying they have given me a $25 credit to my account. I should probably note that I've never shopped on their site. But I am now!

Ooh wait, I see Furla on their site. Off I go to la la land.

Take A Bow

This is love. These gloves are calling my name. So, so pretty. So, so red. So, so needing to be mine.
Take A Bow Gloves at ModCloth

If a certain lovely sister is reading this blog and wants to get these for me for Christmas I will promise to not gank anything else from her closet ever again.

Tweed Sophistication

(Carolyn Sewell and hubby Richard Sewell )

Not only are these two of my favorite people, but they took one of my favorite pictures from DC's Tweed Ride this past Sunday. Style perfectly done, down to the teacups and wicker bike basket.

Secret Promos at Victoria's Secret

T'is the season for deals. They are popping up everywhere. Last night I stopped into Victoria's Secret to spend a gift card. All through November they are running a their Secret Santa promo where if you spend at least $10 you get a free gift card that is worth anywhere from $10-$500 (it becomes valid on Dec. 1 when you can find out how much it is worth). Plus if you spend $30, you get a free mesh panty (just like Hanky Panky). So Bras for everyone if my gift card is worth $500!

Ann Taylor Friends & Family

I used to joke that I would know I was an adult when I started shopping at Ann Taylor. Because, well, Ann Taylor is where adults shop. I remember a few times in my 20's I went there to get the random item for work and i would always try to shove the bag into my purse so no one would know that I actually had shopped there.
Well, I guess it's official now. I am all grown up. Anyway, enjoy the savings!

Low V

I wish that more men would rock the low V. I really do. I just don't understand why so many men shy away from it. And by shy away what I really mean is run away. But come on, you can not look at this picture and tell me that this man has not mastered the look of the low V perfectly.

I'm swooning over here.

Party Favors

These are brilliant! Who doesn't want a mustache on a stick? I mean really... how fun would it be to go to a party and get one of these as a favor? Imagine the pictures!

I now have a goal. And that goal is to have mustache on a stick favors at my next birthday party.

As for these wedding photos... yeah, I don't really know the people. I only care about the mustaches they are sporting.

Art of the Trench

All day it has been in the back of my mind that I should blog about something. But what? I hadn't really read or seen anything that inspirational. Then I did. Boom! Art of the Trench - Burberry's latest collaboration with some of the world's most amazing photographers. All who are given the freedom to take pictures of different people wearing a trench. The first batch of images was done by Scott Shuman (have I mentioned him once or twince, hmm?). AMAZING!

These little guys sort of stole my heart.

Moving on Up

I just attempted to link my blog to my twitter. I think you should know that I still own a box tv. I also don't have speakers for my ipod. I am a little behind on technology. So this was a big deal. Holler!

Anna Comes to Washington

Who says that Washington isn't stylish? Anna Wintour was just named to Obama's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, joining Sarah Jessica Parker, Edward Norton, architect Thom Mayne and former New York City Ballet dancer Damian Woetzel. The committee works to achieve "economic revitalization through the arts" and guarantee the arts don't become an afterthought in America.

I am guessing that Anna's 'Fashion's Night Out' success may have contributed to this just a little bit. Girl is killing it this year.

Quote of the Day

"Fashion is one way in which we hold ourselves together. Just because I've become spiritual doesn't mean I can't love crocodile."

So Fierce

Let's play two facts and a myth. Sort of like two truths and a lie, but way less naughty. Which one of these isn't true?

Fact: Christian Siriano spoke at the Corcoran tonight
Fact: He designed the outfit for one of Lady Gaga's first appearances
Fact: He is old enough to rent a car

Yeah... I feel old.
