Things I'm loving

Pinterest is a website to pin (post) your favorite things, thoughts and interests, create vision boards or just look.  Here are a few things I'm loving from just perusing the website.

In case you're wondering what to get me for Christmas dear friends, wonder no more.  Introducing the Chameleon Duffle Satchel by Fendi.  I love the shape and I especially love the color blocking.  This can be yours (or mine) for just under $2,500!

I just styled my girlfriend for our company party this weekend.  I put her in a body conscious vibrant green dress inspired by Victoria Beckham, grape purple pumps, and fun antique-looking jewels.  The dress shown is not the actual purchased dress, but very similar from Belk.

I'll Mulberry

I know this bag is old now but I still love the Alexa Mulberry Satchel.  Even though it's been out for a while it still carries a heavy price tag, and I cannot afford to spend nearly two grand on a bag.  But isn't it everything?!

Drip diamonds

I've found a dress for my office holiday party, but it's not the sequin overload I originally had in mind. With that said, I still want to sparkle so I'm going to drip myself in (faux) diamonds starting with my writs.  I found some amazing diamond cuff bracelets that will serve as my inspiration.

My latest purchase; These Charles Jourdan Wedges.  They're on sale because they're out of season, unless you live in Southern USA where the weather calls to maintain your pedicure!

You're the boss

I am so in love with J.Crew this season... 

Need I say more?

Tis the Season

I'm on a mission to find a fabulous dress for my company holiday party.  I know I want something girly and shiny, but the options are endless.  Here are a few I've found so far that are giving me inspiration.

Stand at attention

I am so in love with J.Crew's military inspired winter wool coat.  They come in seven vibrant colors, and I cannot decide which color I like best!

I NEED you

I need this emerald green Prada over-sized clutch in my life, it's a medical emergency because I'll die if I don't have it! I saw and touched it at the Prada boutique, and I've never felt anything this soft ever.

You're the one

I have been dying for over-the-knee boots lately, and although this is a trend that's been around I find myself suddenly obsessing over it.  Check out this pair from Gucci; I'm absolutely captivated by them.  Where can I find a similar, less expensive pair?  I must have them.

For KC fans

...and I'm one of them.  I love Kristin Cavallari's style, and now she's parlayed that into a contract with Chinese Laundry.  Go girl!

Let's roll around in the grass

I love my new jeans from Urban Outfitters.  BDG Ankle Cigarette jeans in a variety of colors, but this vibrant green was a clear choice for me.

How absolutely gorgeous does Shaunie O'Neal look in this color-blocking trend.  From the dress, to her hair and make-up she looks amazing.

I want these Theory pants; They're fabulous.  If you know anything about Theory you know that they make a nice long inseam for us taller gals.  I'm getting mine from Saks, plus they are shipping for free (code: SHIPJULY) if you spend $150 or more.

Nicole kills Kim

Calm down I'm just talking in the looks department.  Nicole Scherzinger was performing her new single on SYTYCD and I thought she has to be the most beautiful woman in the world (or maybe second most to JLo).  Everyone goes on and on about Kim Kardashian, and while she is very pretty she's got nothing on Nicole.

Sun Kissed

My sister is getting married Saturday and I am responsible for doing my own make-up.  I'm not freaking out because I've chosen an inspiration:  bronze and kissed by the sun.  Here are some samples I found that I will of course toned down.

Skin is in

My Saturday night look was the talk of the evening.  Something about showing skin that makes people crazy.  This top is from Bebe and I'm so in love with it!  Thanks to Stylish Me for convincing me to go with white pants; that topped it off!

I hate Beyond The Rack! cont'd

Coincidentally they respond that the shoes are in their warehouse today:

"Thank you for contacting BTR. We sincerely apologize for the delay.
Your shoes have been received from the supplier and are currently being processed in our warehouse. They will soon be packaged for the next scheduled pickup with our courier. An email notification will be sent to you with the tracking number. You will be receiving the shoes shortly and will hopefully enjoy wearing them for the rest of the summer!
While we do our very best to ship orders in a timely fashion, merchandise arriving from international suppliers may take longer to be received at our warehouse due to custom clearance delays.
Your shopping experience is important to us and we will make our best effort to expedite the shipping process."

I hate Beyond The Rack!

Below is the letter I felt compelled to write to them:

"I am writing to express my frustration with Beyond The Rack (BTR).  This is the second time I've placed an order with BTR, and this is the second time it has taken over six weeks to receive my order.  I placed this second order on May 20, 2011 for Black Adrienne Vittadini Wedges.  I find it completely absurd that a simple shoe order could take such an outstretched length of time to deliver.  As it stands, by the time the summer shoe gets to me, the season will be over and I will not have the opportunity to wear the shoe.  If you have any sympathy at all you will refund me the full amount and move on."

Shut It Down

Tell me how badly I would shut it down in these Emilio Pucci sandals!  They're marked down from $1,051 to $631; however still out of my price league considering my new car fund.

Pleat these

My latest obsession: the pleated maxi skirt

Step away from the plastic

I'm doing everything in my power not to buy these fabulous Rachel Rachel Roy sandals.  Don't you just love the color scheme, the subtle animal print, that sexy heel?!  My new car fund will not allow for this purchase to happen so someone please zap my brain so that I can forget I saw them!

She does it again

If you're like me you're completely obsessed with Jennifer Lopez.  And if you're like me you cannot get enough of how amazing she looks in her "I'm Into You" music video.  She's a freak!  But the thing that really caught my eye was the incredibly gorgeous Lanvin dress she's wearing accompanied with a head wrap.  Thanks Stylish Me for finding it on Net-A-Porter, but the flipping dress is over $5,000!!!

So this led me to see if I could find something much much much cheaper that looked comparable. These dresses are very cute from and all under $300.

The latest bachelor Brad was just dumped by his gorgeous fiancee Emily.  How is it that this news is always released during a new season of Bachelor/Bachelorette?
