February Picks

February 27, 2012

I’ve got my sights set on that pleated chiffon maxi number. Raya styles a similar one so well. I’m going to have to copy that look. Sources found at Dotcoms For Moms:

Would you could you tangerine tango?

January 30, 2012

I first thought Pantone’s color of the year Tangerine Tango was a bit of a doozy until I happened upon a few pieces that executed the bold color choice in a more subtle way. And I loved it! See sources for items above and more at my guest post for DotcomsForMoms.

And to Kristine and Miranda, I’ll be sending you some Valentine cards! Thanks for all the romantic movie recs too. I’ve got Elizabethtown, The Road Home, and North and South queued up on my watch list (thanks Lindsay, Susan, and Abby!)

Cozy Fall Style Guest Post

November 27, 2011

Last week, I did a guest post at DotComsForMoms on some clothing pieces for fall.
Visit here for sources.

And hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend! My mom and stepdad visited and we sort of cheated with our Thanksgiving feast by ordering Harris Teeter’s prime-rib takeout, pies from Trader Joe’s, and even some sushi. Not your typical Thanksgiving dinner but everyone here (besides me) was adamant about NO turkey!

Miu Miu Style Wrapping + DIY Glitter Labels

November 14, 2011

I think many a blogger/designer/fashionista was stunned when these glitter Miu Miu booties from the fall 2011 collection debuted a while back. So far, I’ve seen painted nails and a cake inspired by these amazing shoes. The silver and gold glitter screams holiday and cheer to me, and so felt inspired to experiment with some packaging ideas.

I had some gray, round Paper Source labels on hand that I coated with spray mount, then sprinkled with gold Martha Stewart Fine Glitter. I did the spraying and sprinkling in a very large paper shopping bag to keep the mess in check. So that my round labels would be easier to pull off, I went ahead and removed the ‘negative’ label area.

And I punched these silver medallions out of silver glitter scrapbook paper and tied off with velvet ribbon.

Post, post, postpartum Style

November 3, 2011

Totally random, as I never do any style posts, but this is what happens when your wardrobe is whittled down to only three tops and a single pair of pants. And I might as well call this a fantasy getup because I doubt Thakoon and Miu Miu will ever grace my closet, but I can’t help pining for some of my non-pregnant style favorites. Like high waisted skirts, structured blouses that can be tucked in, tights, and super high heels. As reality has it, I am waddling around in leggings and flip flops, trying my best to manage with an extra 45 lbs. Yep.
