El Carmen

I apologize for such a big break! So many things to do and so little time!
I thought I would start off by saying that Kate Middleton looked absolutely gorgeous at her royal wedding yesterday! Sarah Burton by Alexander McQueen...HELLOOOO, AMAZING. So elegant and traditional (very similar to Grace Kelly's wedding dress) yet with a wonderful modern twist. And for the record, I don't really mind her sister wearing white (since there are so many people raving about this), she looked beautiful as well, but definitely did not show up her sister at all. It actually went quite well with all the other little bridemaids and made for a perfect palette. Oh yea, and those hats! The guests were rocking these structural and extravagent numbers (check out this slideshow at, this is something I wish we did in America more.
Enough about the royal wedding, here is my latest shoe crush... It is called El Carmen by Jeffrey Campbell. I've seen this shoe in various polka dotted colors (too pin upy) and the American flag (no thanks). But then I saw them in this crazy watercolor/tie-dye looking print on and I died. Have to have them. was out of my size, DANG! But wait, has them too! Yippee!
Oh Jeffrey, you never cease to amaze me...

Girl About Town

I just picked up this lipstick at the MAC store and I would have NEVER thought to buy this color.  I figured, hey, why not try it on to see.  I fell in love.  Obviously this color won't work on every skin tone, but I honestly think it is one of the most flattering colors for me...who knew?!
Get it here!
MAC Lipstick- Girl About Town
I'm going to rock this shade at my party on Sunday and I'll be sure to share photos!

Sweet Socks

I almost bought a pack of boring knit socks...and then, I stumbled upon these brightly hued and patterned sheer socks.  Obviously, I chose to buy these instead.  They are great for adding a little spice to your outfit or wearing them in the spring with your favorite summer shoes.

Isabel Toledo for Payless lace-up heel/wedges

I spy: A tattoo (olive on my left foot: olive...Olivia...get it?)

Finally got my wrap Swatch watch :) Why I chose this color is beyond me
I like to pair it with wrapped chains to give it an edgier feel

New Rings- H&M (I obviously have an obsession with rings) Nailpolish- Essie "Mesmerized"

I'll end with a super cute picture of my kitten, Kiki...snoozing away as usual

Ruffle Bib Necklace

So I took a little trip to the local Michael's Arts and Crafts store and let me just say, I can spend hours and hours there.  Millions of DIY opportunities, especially in the jewelry section.  As I was browsing all the charms and chains, I immediately gravitated towards this ruffly fluff thing.  The perfect piece to make a necklace (I actually think it was made for that, so I guess I'm not that clever).  But anyway, all I had to do was get some sort of chain (or ribbon would work too), connect it with some jump rings, et VoilĂ !  It came out perfect and I can not wait to rock it!  Hurry, go make one yourself!
