A little materialism never hurt anybody. If anything, it made them happier.

how lovely!

How lovely! I like this! This is one of the reasons why I love this time of year - so many amazing, incredible outfits!

And a happy birthday to one of my dearest friends! You know who you are! :)

oh warmth and colors, how I miss thee

Currently in the process of convincing my sister to take me on a cruise for my birthday. If so, I would wear this!

coat bliss

I am sorry, but has anyone ever seen such an adorable coat??? Oh my goodness. It's - it's everything I've ever wanted in a jacket. I need it. And it's on sale! But it's still - oh but I just - I need it.

Thanksgiving dish wish!

Oh my goodness, how perfect for making the bane of Thanksgiving dish-drying fun and adorable! WANT.

happy freezing dark dreary monday

Love. Love. Love. This jewelry! Totally saw it first on Sunday Brunch blog - gotta give credit where credit is due!

I kind of just want to eat these. They look like visions of sugarplums, dancing merrily in my head.

lovely tuesday!

Sigh. I love EmersonMade. So, so much. Loving this beautiful navy and brass jacket. Ugh! So gorg. And if I ever got an EmersonMade flower as a gift, I'd probably throw up happiness everywhere. Sorry. Too far.

oh my!

If a Sunday Brunch Dress Shop gift card fell out of the sky and onto my head, I would die happy. Just die. Happy.

a worthy weekly indulgence

So engrossed by these prints from The Love Shop. Just beautiful! Happy weekend, pretties!!

how knotty!

Oh my god, so inspired by this photograph on Dress, Design & Decor. Totally about to go stir-crazy whipping through drawers trying to find my silk scarves! Such easy, effortless, affordable style.

Happy Veteran's Day! What are you doing with your day off?

Oh, em, gee. Love that gold zipper, and the fact that they're cashmere-lined just warms my soul (and my hands, duh). Now we know I am obsessed with driving gloves, and for good reason! It is not nice at all to be plagued with a cold steering wheel as winter approaches! And here's a secret - even if you start your car up 10 minutes before you leave, your steering wheel doesn't heat up, now does it? No it does not. Santa, driving gloves please.

Painting my nails in Black Russian didn't satisfy my Rescue Beauty Lounge craving, it only made it worse! So I promptly hopped online and snarfed up a few more shades (virtually speaking, of course). Sigh. There's something about the colder weather that just gets me in the mood to paint my nails. Gagging for these pretties!!

happy salmon tales

Desperately missing one of my favorite European fashion forefronts, Vila. Wishing for this feisty little number!!

a worthy weekly indulgence

I literally had a Note Trunk stamp in my Etsy basket and was about to check out when I was overwhelmed by a reality attack which made me remember that I need to exercise restraint, given my itty bitty budget. That was such a long sentence.

Anyway, I love all of the Note Trunk stamps and paper and figured that since I wouldn't be stamping any envelopes with some whimsical little NT design anytime soon, I'd better share my NT love with you all so that someone else might be able to enjoy the whimsy, too.

What is wrong with me and all the long sentences? See, even that didn't make sense.

it's ALMOST friday

I love Free People. Obviously, given my Anthropologie addiction. My favorite part of Free People is the little sale nook, even though it's almost as exorbitantly priced as the regular priced items. Sigh.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

well, it's wednesday

Ugh, I love this dress. I wish it were summer so I could wear it. Ugh ugh ugh.

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

sigh, it's tuesday

I wish I could wear boots like this to work, but the nature of my job is one where it wouldn't be appropriate for me to look even remotely sexy. Sigh.

Monday, November 1, 2010

ugh, monday

The description for this necklace on the J.Crew site says that it was inspired by the designer's recent trip to Turkey. Yeah - she better be inspired by something - can't even begin to imagine how much that trip cost. No wonder everything at J.Crew is so expensive.

But on a side note - how excited am I that this week goes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in accordance with the new month and Monday-Friday? OCD sufferers, unite!!
