Go and brush your shoulders off.

Shoulder pads, I am quite obsessed and for a # of reasons:

1. THE 80’s Fashion Staple- I’m an 80’s baby who also loves big hair.

2. Shoulders are sexy.

3. It takes inches off your waist or at least gives the illusion 🙂

4. It makes a statement.

These are my favorite dresses:

In other news.

1) Today I wore my new pink dress. Its made of venice lace and has a very flattering, feminine shape. I paired it with my Nine West ivory, patent leather peep-toe pumps- which I got at TJ Maxx. I’m very in love. I specifically wore the dress today b/c one of my friends is having her “baby reveal party” this evening and we are supposed to wear the color we think the baby will be. Pink or Blue! And since “on Wednesday’s we wear pink”, its only natural that I predict her to be having a girl!

2) I had a conversation today about the appreciation of butter. Immediately I thought about Bride Wars and just for the record I looked to see if there actually is an “International Butter Club”. I haven’t found one… yet.

3) According to dictionary.com, love the app- get it here the word of the day is theurgy.

1. a system of beneficent magic practiced by the Egyptian Platonists and others.

2. the working of a divine or supernatural agency in human affairs.

“One kind of theurgy is accepted and seen as true in many Christian churches — it’s God getting directly involved in our affairs, through miracles or divine intervention. Other kinds of theurgy involve magic, as in casting spells and doing magical rituals. The word comes from the Greek theourgia, “sorcery,” which in turn is rooted in theos, or “god.”” –vocabulary.com

Receiving THE call today about an opportunity of a lifetime would be an act of theurgy.

What would be your miracle today?

And they were all yellow…

Today is the 4th anniversary of my mom’s passing. She loved the color yellow and so do I.

Q&A Sesh

If you could have been born in a different culture or time period, what would it be?

For me it would have definitely been 1920’s Jazz Age– Gatsby Era.

Effortless glamour, sparkle, feathers, art deco (SYMMETRY), gold.

Fun + Freedom.

All about the fashion– refined, classic, playful. Layered pearls, shift dresses.

Makeup was excessive, but classy.

Romance, mystery, and temptation.

What about you!?

falling in love…

I am kind of crushing on PINK today- this is new for me!

Let’s Celebrate!

You may or may not know this about me, but I LOVE balloons! This past week we launched our Estee Lauder GWP and this year Estee Lauder and Lilly Pulitzer teamed up to create and exclusive printed bag and mirror for the gift.

Long story long, to promote the gift we set up “Pretty in Prints” parties in 9 of our Lilly shops.  I have never been a Lilly girl, its not that I don’t like the brand- its adorable! But it just doesn’t speak to my own style, Cosmpolitan Elegance. However, while walking through the shop I discovered my first Lilly Pulitzer love…  and her name is “Pop” and she is covered in balloons. And did I mention I love her?
