{shop} new @ j.crew

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.

Lace front tee.

And these crystal brulee bracelets. FUN.

Happy weekend! xoxo S

{decorate} with owls

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.

spring 2012 rtw: part 8

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.

Louis Vuitton:

Loved the icy pastels, the fantastic coats, and THE SHOES. Um, and hello Kate Moss.

Elie Saab:

Those colors are bananas. Especially the emerald and cobalt! LOVE.

Happy weekend!
