Have you started your Holiday Shopping? Here are a few things to help you get inspired!
Shop the looks here. I tried to hit some high (sky-high) and low price points.
Stay tuned, there will be more lust lists coming!

Happy Thanksgiving

Style Stalker

Posted on: Friday, November 19, 2010

This week I was a little creeptastic with my purchases...
Above is my "O" on her honeymoon! I absolutely died when I saw her coat thinking it was some amazing European vintage find. Of course she gave me the scoop and revealed that it was actually from T.J.Maxx! Clearly, I skipped the gym that day and headed straight out to find the coveted item. I was so excited not only to find it, but also to see that it was only $29.99! "O" and I live so far away that I decided I wouldn't be cramping her style buy pulling a complete copy cat.

Things got worse from there when later in the week I saw the above outfit online at Ann Taylor Loft. Again, I marched right over to the nearest store to get the striped merino wool blazer and the silk halter cami!
I have been ridiculously self-indulgent and now have a renewed commitment to get into the spirit of GIVING ;)

Little Updates

Posted on: Wednesday, November 17, 2010

You'll have to excuse me but I get overly excited about the tiniest things!
Hello little ikat Anthropologie bowl...I love you.
(Especially for $8.00)
This little thing is just the cutest! I added it to my living room coffee table arrangement.
I had to have it because it was only $14.50. I found it at Ann Taylor Loft. Shocked? I certainly was. It was actually my first time in the store... I did some major damage (oops).
My Allegra Hicks book arrived and is currently residing underneath my lamp. I'm obsessed with it and will probably move it a million different places but am happy for now. I still can't get over the cover and once I get a moment to breath I'll do more than simply thumb through the book (which was impressive).
Last little love is the above pair of earrings from Anthropologie. I'm super picky about the weight of earrings because I'm nervous about droopy earlobes. These chandeliers are quite lightweight.
When I acquire new items I just HAVE to have them out in the open where I can see and appreciate them. Love hanging them off this little bowl (also from anthro) which holds a few bracelets.

Rockstar Diaries

Posted on: Monday, November 15, 2010

Do you already follow Rockstar Diaries? Naomi writes about her adventures with her husband and their bulldog Kingsley. She seems like the absolute sweetest thing ever and she's expecting! Is that not the most adorable little bump ever?
Check out the short film she shared a while ago. I love it and am obsessed with the soundtrack by beirut

Quick Vase Makeover

I found the hideous vase above at Michael's. I really didn't like it but the shape was just what I was looking for. A quick coat of white spray paint and ta-da!
Below the finished product. I think the grand total was around 7 dollars for the whole process.

Fall Accessories Update

Posted on: Friday, November 12, 2010

I decided to switch out all of the blue pillows to create a fall feeling in my living room. I'm loving all of the new textures! If you're in the Baltimore area go check out Arhaus down in Harbor East. If not, check out their other store locations to see if there is one near you.
Love the industrial feel of the middle pillow. The other two almost look like an animal print but they're not!

Absolutely obsessed with the the San Francisco based Design firm Massucco Warner Miller. Their interiors have graced the cover of House Beautiful and are found across the blogosphere.
Can you even choose a favorite?

It's All About Balance

Posted on: Friday, November 5, 2010

So I've been chained to my desk at work this week writing comments and grades for all of my students!
After I finished the twenty-ninth report card I ordered this:
So obsessed with this book, I can't wait for it to arrive! God I love being the boss of me. Isn't it nice rewarding yourself for small feats?
Have an awesome weekend!

Lonny Tactile Experience?!

Posted on: Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Will you be ordering your very own copy of the Lonny Magazine printed version? The price ranges from $30-$40 per issue. This may seem daunting at first, but keep in mind that these issues are generally around 200 pages! And we all know they are chalk-full of killer design inspiration.
I'm hoping to get my hands on a few during the holiday season...just sayin'.

Camping Anyone?

Posted on: Monday, November 1, 2010

I'm not much of a "camper" but if this were the setting, I could definitely rough it for a day or two! It's going to be a CRAZY week for me. Would love to escape to this elegant little hideaway!
