The frenzied pace of the holiday season leaves me craving a little simplicity and organization. 
Above, a few perfectly organized spaces that serve to renew my commitment to purge and organize this new year.

Just a few items that definitely channel your inner tough girl...
At times, I really enjoy dressing with more of an edge... like the juxtaposition of a huge watch on my petite wrist.

Simplifying Things

As of late I've started making efforts to purge and simplify my wardrobe and home decor. 
At home I'm changing things back to a softer, cleaner color palette... a new jute rug, crisp clean white slipcovers to replace my currently worn/loved ones.  I'm also on the hunt for vintage finds- high on the list is a large mirror.  I'm toying with the idea of setting up and Etsy shop with some of the items I'm ready to part with.  Would any of you be interested in that? Do you have your own shop? How has your experience been?


PS- for those of you NOT looking to purge head on over here to see my recent picks for items that "need" to be in your closet this season ;)

Congratulations Leah!
Please look forward to an email from me today!

Thank you all so much for your support and entries! I really enjoyed hosting this giveaway.
Today's my birthday so it's fun to do something like this to celebrate on the blog.

It's that time of year ladies and gents!  I received a request to do a post on my picks for black tie looks... so wallah-here they are: 
Scroll through the dresses and click on any that peak your interest. I was a sneeze away from buying this dress last week and think I may just have to cave!

Want to look couture without the monetary commitment? Then Rent The Runway honey!
Love, wear, then return your most coveted designer looks. Rent The Runway allows you to rent a dress or accessory for ten percent of the retail price! They carry over 140 designers and will ship a dress to you in two sizes to ensure the perfect fit.  Pre-stamped return envelopes allow you to ship the dress back easily, and they take care of the dry cleaning.

What are you plans this holiday season! Any exciting events?

Louis Vuitton iPhone Case Giveaway!

That's right folks! I'm in the holiday spirit and hosting my first ever giveaway!
While shopping with my little sister she (not so tactfully) pointed out that I was carrying my vintage LV bag, a wallet, and an iPhone case. OK, OK, I know... I took it too far. My mistake is your lucky little holiday gain.

Today is a very important day for me at work; so, I thought I would feature some fun items that can add a little sparkle to your own workday routines.

Mackenzie's online boutique, Design Darling, is full of treasures but today I'm featuring her gold foil notebooks, business card cases, and colored Le Pen's.

I would happily take notes and compile to-do lists in these stunning notebooks. They contain 56 unlined pages and measure 5"x7"

Colorful pens literally make me happy- is that odd? I try to avoid boring black and blue whenever I have the chance! These Le Pen's come in a set of 12 and are offered in pink, lime green, blue, periwinkle, and turquoise

Who doesn't want a business card case that reflects a bit of their own personal style? These eco-friendly cases are made from recycled leather and fit standard size cards. I can't decide between lime green, pink, or cobalt blue?

Happy Monday Loves.

What are your thoughts on bows this season? I'm smitten.
My friend Olivia from O.Style scored the amazing vintage bow earrings pictured above. I swear she was about six months ahead of the curve on this one. Now everywhere I look... bows, bows, bows! 

No complaints on this one-as long as you're not wearing them on headbands in your hair- that's reserved for little girls 10 and under in my book.  
What I don't mind is collegiate athletes who tie ribbons in their ponytails 
(so guilty of that one and you may still catch me on a run with a little ribbon from the good old days tied just so- total geek)

I love these two looks because they skirt tradition. None of the expected holiday color schemes
(not that there's anything wrong with that- I have a sick vintage tartan shirt and long pencil skirt I totally plan on rocking this winter).
Do you feel pressure to stick to reds, greens, tartan and velvet during the Holiday season? Would you wear something like this to a winter event, cocktail party, night out with girls, or a dinner with friends? Or, does this read a little too Miami summer soiree to you?
What are your thoughts? Weigh-in, I'd love to know.

Hope you have a happy and healthy day!

I just cant get over the perfect marriage of masculinity and femininity in this space. Each with their own independent perspective/voice present; yet neither over powering one another, nor competing. The design works in harmony portraying strength, warmth and grace.

Kind of sounds like the perfect relationship to me.

Lot's of hard work and coffe helped me get through last week. I submitted a 64+ page project and now just need to get my formal presentation ready. 
Hoping to restore some balance this week including more posts here and a few visits to the gym!
I've updated my posh purchases section on pinterest if you want to check out a few of my recent lustworthy items. 

Above: My Bridget Bardot print arrived and I couldnt be happier. I immediately framed it and love! 
Happy Sunday

Update: For those of you asking I purchased it here on ebay total was under ten dollars with shipping!
