It is a yucky, rainy day in MD today, but we are heading to Miami tonight for a long weekend AND there are fantastic new arrivals at J.Crew! I am filling up my virtual shopping cart as we speak…
I NEED this new Viv flat. LOVE LOVE LOVE. The pointy toe feels fresh and I adore the big bow. I love it in topiary and mushroom.
LOVING the new royal paisley print.
And these crystal brulee bracelets. FUN.
Happy weekend! xoxo S
My fabulous friend Denise has been into owls for quite some time (she gave me an adorable cloisonné owl necklace for my birthday a few years ago), and it seems like the home decor stores have finally jumped on her bandwagon. Check out all of these adorable owl accents for the home.

Will you be incorporating some owls for Fall?!
Final Spring 2012 post. Valentino, Louis Vuitton, and Elie Saab. Three of my favorites. LOVED these collections. Fantastic colors and shapes.
I especially love the hot pink and gunmetal grey dresses. FAB.
Loved the icy pastels, the fantastic coats, and THE SHOES. Um, and hello Kate Moss.
Those colors are bananas. Especially the emerald and cobalt! LOVE.
McQueen and Chanel! Swoon! Both had a fantastic underwater vibe. Love, love love.
I’d like one of these –
But, since that fabulous Hermes Avalon Blanket will set you back a cool $1,225, here are some other, more afforable options I am loving right now.
Love that these in2green throws are made from recycled cotton yarns and made in the USA. How great are the patterns/colorways?
Also, HUGE fan of Jonathan Adler’s Richard Nixon Throw.
COCOCOZY does incredible cotton throws (made in the USA).
And these herringbone throws from Brahams Mount (from Maine) look really cozy.
Which would you like to curl up with?
Husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year and we are super excited about it!
How charming are these invitations and placecards from Rifle Paper Co.? I think we may need to use them…
PRADA. This collection was so much fun. Punchy colors, lovely silhouettes, a fun 50s vibe. And the most fabulous shoes.
And the shoes… Bananas!
The ready to wear shows continued in London and my two favorites were Burberry Prorsum and Jonathan Saunders.
Burberry Prorsum showed gorgeous mid-calf skirts in deep muted colors with fabulous accents.
Loved the platforms, hats and huge bags.
Jonathan Saunders also showed mid-calf lengths and platforms, but his color palette was definitely Palm Beach – coral, aqua, lime, and yellow. Fabulous.
Our new chandelier was installed in the dining room yesterday and I am in LOVE. Our previous ceiling fixture was of the boob variety –
So, we replaced it with this Candice Olson Shelby Chandelier –
And here’s what it looks like installed –
It’s the perfect size in our little dining room. Since we’ve moved in, we’ve added new wallpaper:
Amy Butler Laceworks.
West Elm Silk Drapes (now on super sale).
Crystal ball curtain rods (Martha for Home Depot).
and area rug by flor (Martha’s faux bois design, which is looks like they’ve sold out of!).
We just need to paint and we can call the dining room finished!
Did you watch the Emmys last night? I like Jane Lynch but I think they were pretty boring overall. And maybe I just watch too much Bravo, but I have never heard of some of these shows – Big Bang Theory? What is that about? And why don’t the actors from Mad Men ever win? I think that is the best show on television.
Anyway, here’s my take on the red carpet.
What’d you think about Gwyneth’s middrift baring dress? I sort of dug it. She looks fantastic, as usual and I really liked the black lace and her fab link bracelets.
I think Emily Blunt rarely makes a misstep. I liked this navy Elie Saab gown. She is gorgeous.
Kate Winslet looked incredible. Husband was basically drooling. Love the fit and love the red!
Sofia Vergara also looked amazing in red. Love those earrings too!
I don’t usually like Evan Rachel Wood, but she looks fantastic in this black sequin Elie Saab gown. Love the cap sleeves.
Another gorgeous girl in red – LOVED Lea Michele in red Marchesa.
Cat Deely’s dresses are one of my favorite things about SYTYCD. She looked great last night. Love this Monique Lhuillier gown, her loose locks, and bronze clutch.
Did I forget any of your favorites? Who’d you think was best dressed?
