Slit it Up…

slit1

 

So, the other day I was watching 90210 (yes, I know…I have moments when I like to watch shows that make me feel like a 17-year old girl) and I instantly fell in love with one of Annie’s skirts.  This stunning black maxi skirt with a high slit in the front to the mid-thigh.  I fell in love with it so much that I literally started dreaming about it and have since spent far too much time searching online for where I can get my paws on one of my own.  It has now moved to the top of my shopping list for my spring and summer attire wish list.  So, with that, I think I am going to have to find time to go shopping.

How do you feel about the maxi skirt with a high slit?  Would you dare?

I love her hair.  I love her hair so much that the other night when I laid eyes on it I immediately scheduled a hair appointment for an ombre treatment to my locks.  I have had grown out blonde chunky highlights for son long, it seemed like the best idea to change up my look some.  When I get inspiration, I go with it, instantly.

I love tattoos and have been craving another.  Specifically, one on my mid back like this. I would prefer a design similar to this but more with an elephant in it, I know shocking – I want an elephant tattoo.  This is serving as inspiration to get on the designing of my next one…

Her look is stylish, chic and simple.  A lovely lady inspiring me this fine Friday.

Winter refuses to leave.  So, I am taking this photo and using it as my inspiration to go have fun and play in the snow.  Have to make the most out of everything, right?!!

I am absolutely obsessed with these stunning new shoes that I simply had to have the other day when I laid eyes on them.  I still was on the hunt for the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit.  These little gems were the perfect inspiration to be the muse for my whole look, so naturally I had to purchase them – plus, I got 20% off for having on red (which happened to be a pair of Christmas socks due to it being laundry day – worked out well for me)!!

What are you drawing inspiration from this week and loving?

Much love,

These Alexander McQueen’s make me speechless.  Love at first sight.

And these Christian Louboutin’s are the grown up version of ruby red slippers.  Wouldn’t mind clicking my heels in these.

These brightly colored peep toe heels would be perfect for the first spring days.

After running around in all those fabulous heels, I am going to need a fabulous pair of flats to give my little feet a break – and these would be perfect.

Yes.  Words to live by.  And on that note, I think we may be in need of some retail therapy – starting with shoes.

What is your favorite thing to go shopping for?  Shoes?  Bags?  Clothes?  Or something else?

Much love,

There is something so beautiful about this photo.  The girl is stunning, but that is not all.  The look in her eyes draw you in and then the soft look on her whole face allows for the red to pop perfectly on her lips.  Love this lovely.

This drawing is amazing.  I love all that it communicates all through a pencil sketch.  A girl filled with so much emotion and words that are right there on the surface, but still stuck inside of you…

Seriously, this is the perfect warm winter day ensemble.  I adore the hat – the big brim to help block the wind.  Then, add the big shawl – divine.

I have been obsessing over figs as of late and so naturally this salad grabbed my attention right away.  It looks delectable.

How cute are these little booties?!!  I seriously feel like I need these for spring.  I just die.

What are you dying to gets your little paws on for spring?  Do you impulse buy or try to take time to think about the purchase first?

Much love,

The Everyday Crown…

What girl didn’t want to be a princess with a crown when she was a little girl?!  Well, you may not have gotten the crown you wanted, but there is a far better functional option  – a hat.  And the best part about this more everyday type of crown, is that there are so many fabulous styles you can change it up – even daily if you wish.  I know I certainly would if I could, though my default in the winter is always my gray fedora with a couple feathers.  I love wearing it to the office – it is like my trademark.  I recently discovered a fabulous hat store in Uptown – and I think it is a little piece of heaven on earth – seriously, fabulous.  A hat makes a statement and makes a woman stand out.  So, she may not be a princess, but she can still be rather spectacular – no matter what mood she is in to sport for the day.

Shop Till You Drop…

 

I have been taking this weekend very seriously when it comes to knocking out my Christmas list.  Now, I know that this season is not all about the gifts – but I seriously love giving gifts so I am glad that it is still a part of the season.  This is a weird time of year for me (too much to explain here), so I am always looking for ways to make it more enjoyable.  One of those ways is searching for the perfect gift for each person on my list – but my oh my that gets exhausting and I seriously feel like I am going to need a weekend to recover from my weekend.

Do you like giving gifts?  Is it fun for you to pick things out or stressful?  Do you buy gifts early or wait until last minute?

Much love,

B

It’s Hard Work…

 

Hope you are still alive and not suffering from too many bruises.  It is vicious out there.  I went last night for the adventure and got some good stuff – and dang, people mean business.  I was exhausted afterwards.

Do you partake in the Black Friday shopping extravaganza? What was the best deal you got? 

Much love,

I pretty much need this vest.  It is amazing.  I adore its sparkles – and it has an elephant!

 

This is a beautiful song and a beautiful copy of the sheet music – and yes, I am a sucker for anything Beatles.

 

This combination is fabulous – seriously  every piece.  Woud not change a thing.  And, I think I need to go shopping now for this skirt – I actually found a similar one at Chico’s – who would have thought?!!

 

Love the chill easy going look here – my way to wear a bandanna for sure.

 

I pretty much adore anything Miss Britt wears – put this look is straight hott.  Seriously, this is the perfect shorts over tights look.

What is on your shopping list these days because you are loving it so much you can’t not have it?

Much love,

B

Midday Break…

 

Does anyone else ever need those midday breaks in their day?!  My favorite is online shopping.  I seriously think I may be on the verge of an issue…there is something so thrilling about it.  I love this time of year because the holiday deals start to be everywhere and let me tell you – it makes Christmas shopping so much easier – especially for those of us that are not fans of big groups of people.  It is a productive break in the day – love that.  My favorite midday break is my daily trip to MyHabit.com – you need to go if you haven’t yet.  Designer goods super marked down and free shipping (I hate paying for shipping…) – so whether you are shopping for yourself, your bou, your kid, your home – or all of thee above it is the perfect spot.

 

Do you shop online?  What is your midday break?  What is your favorite site to shop at?

Much love,

B
