Ballon Bleu time!! I’m obsessed…

In a perfect world this would be waiting for me under the Christmas tree. However, it is not (for many reasons NOT including this one), and so maybe I can get the diamondless one??

Hahaha that probably saves you like $5… But I love how simple & classic it is.

Basically, Santa, I really want a classic, simple, elegant, non-leather watch.


Working Girl

Ideal 1st day of work outfit:

Pleated leather mini with cute silk blouse, booties, stacks of rings, and a fall colored bag. Comfy & work appropriate.


New job may mean that I’ll be MIA from wordpress for a lil bit.  I want to focus 110% on excelling in my new role, but you can still find me on Tumblr and Twitter (bc they are way faster/easier to update) in the meantime.  See you soon!

~yummy creative non-pasta dinner~

~cute Theyskens Theory skirt to be added to my closet soon~

~the cutest sad puppy I’ve ever seen~

~homemade cookies & cream ice cream!~

I think I love this. The boy has so many shirts in the closet he refuses to get rid that I can’t wait to play with!

But I do kind of wish I had discovered this 4 months ago…

I’m finally back with another installment of “What’s in the box?!”

These arrived last night in the mail, after waiting weeks and weeks for them!

Even the inside of the box is cool! As is the dust bag…

Friday I was trying to donate to Obama before the deadline to enter to win the dinner with him.  Weirdly, my credit card would NOT go through. So I decided to try it somewhere else… how to test? Hmm..

I know! Order shoes!

So these are coming in the mail… Hopefully tomorrow!


The weather gets a little colder, the days get a little shorter, the leaves start changing color, and I get another year older…

Also, present season begins!! And here’s what I want:

1) Olympus EPL3: bc after LOTS of online research & hands-on investigating at photo stores, I decided I really like the look & feel of this one.  Obviously, also all its functionalities – most of which I don’t know how to use yet…

2) J Brand eggplant pants (sz 26): bc I live in my J Brand jeans! They fit me just right, are so comfy & I love this eggplant color for fall.

3) TOMS by The Row (sz 8): bc they are warm & comfy & I had to throw out my last pair.

4) Rachel Comey Mars Boots (sz 8): bc they are also comfy and oh so cute/cool! Best of all, they are all-season shoes! Perfect in fall/winter bc they’re boots (duh!) but also great for spring/summer with a cute little dress or cut-offs.  May not be able to wait til my birthday though since they are selling out so so fast!

5) Emerald Diego bucket bag: bc I’m obsessed with green & all things Wang.

6) Anais loafers in rose gold: bc I’m obsessed with rose gold & all things Wang and though I’m not expecting to get them, they’re impossible to leave off a wishlist…

Additional Wishlist items:

Mr. Dannijo stackable rings

Lastly, books! “How to Cook Everything” by Mark Bittman and “Blood Bones and Butter” by Gabrielle Hamilton.

Awards shows (besides the Golden Globes) are usually pretty dull, but last night’s Emmys were so fun to watch!! It was funny, sweet, and the fashion was interesting (instead of safe). Here are my picks for standouts.


Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang


Padma in Armani

This is also a terrible photo but the color just doesn’t work on her skin tone and something about the fit is all sorts of wrong!

Hey cool!! I love Suno & I love sunglasses & I’m so excited for Suno printed Warby Parker sunnies (at a seemingly reasonable price?!)

They’ve created 3 limited edition sunglasses… Refinery29 got a preview in February but it seems now they’ve added an aviator version too!


Also, in case you didn’t know… Warby Parker is a TOMS style brand in that they give a person in need a pair of specs for each bought! So you can still be stylish & a do gooder!

Again, WordPress is refusing to acknowledge the newest photos on my comp.  So still no butter fo ju!

But, this does bring you Missoni for Target! I cannot wait til September… but since I’m not one to line up for hours (days?) outside a store, I’m going to have to take my chances.  Here’s some photos they’ve finally released of the collection.

First, the ads:

This is the one that’s been popping up everywhere but there’s other I like more.

And my fav:

Bc she looks so chill & happy & isn’t that what you wished you were doing right now?! I’m assuming there’s a pool a few feet away or the ocean…

& now fore previews of the collection!
