The Glitter Guide came over the other week to capture some Random Snippets of my life-
1. My passed down Hermes -love pieces that have had a history // 2. Im an avid sunglass collector. I’ve had lots of luck when it comes to finding designer vintage goods. My favorite find so far are these vintage Diors’ circa 1960s. // 3. Mixing & matching pieces from Givenchy, Free People, Michael Kors, Beso Beso, and another vintage find (on my right). // 4. Stacks of books to keep me inspired & a bouquet of fresh hydrangeas to freshen up the house. // 5. I love jewelry but I also love things that organizes my pieces! //6. The new Gucci Black Strappys..Welcome home babes. // 7. My favorite part of the morning- adorning myself.
What are some of your most coveted obsessions?
After an impossibly busy week Michelle and I took some time off last night to catch a breath and unwind to some ahhh-mazing food, wine, and tons of laughter at my fave restaurant in downtown Church & State.
MICHELLE’S OUTFIT- I adored her look last night! chic chic chic was written all over her! She was wearing highwaisted leather shorts with a perfectly loose silk blouse…very sophisticated & chic! Her leopard print stilettos and oversized blue envelope clutch (love the metal detailing) was just the right amount of accents!
MY OUTFIT- When wearing colors from head to toe I try to keep it all in the same color family. For example: peach top, fuschia skirt, burgandy shoes (all in the pink/red family).
Blouse- Rachel Roy, Top- vintage, skirt- zara, shoe- alexander wang, Purse- Hermes, earrings- vintage dior, sunglasses- House of harlow
An overflowing feeling of excitement on all the new projects we are working on..someone needs to pinch me…am i dreaming or is this real?
Hope its beautiful where you are!
Strong coffee & frothy lattes, a messy side swept updo, & red liptint has been the remedy to early early mornings.
This past weekend took some time to get re inspired by my very own closet. Have you ever been completely & utterly bored by your own closet? I’ve had this silk blouse and floral skirt for years and have sadly retired them to the back burner for quite sometime now, but it just takes a new pairing/combination to be re -inspired by those old pieces. Both pieces are interesting (in color & print) on their own, but together, they make a strong statement. I’ve been utterly inspired by the seemingly “wild” aspect of mixing prints. The trick to pulling off “print on print” is to counterbalance the scale of different prints. In other words have one large print and one small print, and keep both in the same color family so the look makes more sense. We can call this organized chaos!
I challenge you this week to think outside of the box and pair up 2 pieces you would have never thought to pair together! (trust me..its quite liberating!) And please leave a comment here, TWEET ME, or FACEBOOK ME with a picture of your new combo! Would love to see what you ladies come up with!
HAPPY MONDAY & HAPPY Prints Charming!

You know what it is that i LOVE about HERMES? (besides their amazing leather and quality of their purses?) the consitancy of their designs yet they are still creative and innovative. I mean take a look at the detailing on those one piece jumpsuits…does the stitching and design look familiar? It’s exactly the same design on their hermes birkin purses. Talk about wearing a purse on your chest! And im squealing inside as i see the mini mini heremes birkin purse as a wristlet, where you can store ur phone and a possible lipstick.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bordeaux look with long braids, nude nails, riding flatboots, and of course the wild west hat! Funny just purchased a black and brown one 2 days ago before I even saw the Hermes spring summer 2011 show. Now for sure I will be rockin my flatboots and riding hat…Want to Ride a Cowgirl??
