Happy Memorial Day Weekend

While you are boozing, grilling and spending time with friends and family, don't forget to reflect on our wonderful USofA and wear those stars and stripes proudly!  AMERICA, you have a beautiful color palette!  Wear your primary colors proud all weekend long.  Here's a little inspiration.  


And to purchase the perfect summer bikini check out this Thayer design on shopbop. Reminds me of Dick, ya know, with Michelle Williams and Kirsten Dunst??      xx

Born This Way FOR 99cents


On Monday, Mother Monster crashed Amazon's website because she is allowing them to sell Born This Way for 99cents.  That's practically STEALING, ya'll.  Instead of paying 13$ for it on Itunes or going to Target to buy the actual cd (remember when the music stores were in business???) you can get it for less than one dollla dolla bill.  Or, you can dl the individual songs you like the best for 99 cents each.. which is still cheaper than itunes.  All you must do is download their mp3 player and then you can dance the days away.  HURRY, hooker prostitute wenches, before Amazon crashes again!  Schei├če, be mine!  xx

Sample Sale! Sample Sale!

Maybe two of my favorite words in the English Dictionary (cue to Confessions of a Shopoholic when she is fighting over the Gucci boots).  I have only been lucky enough to attend one sample sale in my life, since they don't happen very often in East Tenn, but Tibi is kind enough to offer it online!  If you visit the website and enter your email, you are granted access!  Let the savings begin!  The discounts aren't as major as they would be in an actual store sample sale, but hey, beggers cannot be choosers.  Hope ya get yourself something really lovely                  xx

happy birthday

Bob Dylan has inspired so many folks throughout his amazing, talented life.  I'm a classic "Like a Rolling Stone" kind of girl, but my all time favorite is "Rainy Day Women #12 and 35".  Not only is he musically inspirational, but his laid back rocknroll style has been very influential over the years.  The wayfarers, the scarves, the layering jackets, black blazers, dusty ankle boots and dirty hair have been going strong for years.  And those vests!  I loved his vests.  Lets listen and admire his good taste!  Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan

Kate's Crash






After photos of the new Duchess of Cambridge alongside hubby and the Obamas surfaced, Reiss' online site quickly crashed.  Catherine Middleton once again dons' a high street look, and the Shola dress was so popular that not only did it sell out, but it caused their site to go down-where it currently remains.  While the knee length bandage shift dress isn't extremely pricey ($280), it looks like a million bucks.  It has fitting detail, but remains minimalistic and extremely flattering.  Fit for a princess, right? whhaaawhaaa, now lets all go jump.  PS Who does her hair?? xx

Bitch, Please


I just wanted to reiterate the pictures sweeping the interwebs of the newly improved Bristol Palin.  I'm all about having some work done, but don't go to Canal Street, follow a sketchy man saying "Gucci, Prada" into a dark closet, buy a bag and then call it real- because that is the exact same as saying your surgery was a corrective jaw procedure.  They most definitely lipo'd your face and implanted a new chin.


“It’s not plastic surgery. I had corrective jaw surgery. Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons…so my jaw and teeth could properly realign…I don’t obsess over my face. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I look older, more mature and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face. I wouldn’t get plastic surgery unless I got in an accident or something terrible.”
— Bristol Palin 


F you, Bristol Palin, and your terrible mother's PR team.  You might be one of the worst examples for young girls EVER     xx

New Couple Alert

My love for celebrity gossip hit a high note today when I saw, for my own two eyes, the newest, most really ridiculously good looking duo in years, aka Blake and Leo.  I'm sure they are getting to know each other very well, and their FRIENDSHIP is blossoming as we swoon.  I also admire her incognito look and sun hat!  Ladies everywhere are saying in unison, "get it girl".

The Rapture Satchel


I think this is the ideal bag to be toting around on this beautiful May day, which is also said to be the end of time!  I'm  even watching 2012, getting in the mood!  And, since online discount retailers want us to go out in style, BlueFly has discounted the Rebecca Minkoff bag even further.  Hurry!  Before it is too late!  Or, when everyone is calling that old guy's bullshit, carry your Rapture Satchel to work or on a weekend getaway.  I can't wait to show those Myans who's boss!                   xx


request: date night

Effortlessly put together date night ideas that will be sure to make you shine!  I chose accessible pieces they aren't too loud and remain minimalistic.  Put your own touch on shorts or a mini with subtle color and standout jewelry choices.        xx

rainy workday

The rain has become relentless, and all we can do is put on our Hunter boots and dress for spring.  Tuck in a button down then collectively roll up your sleeves with a bright cardigan.  Add equally bright accessories, and it won't look like you, too, are seasonally depressed.  Happy Humpday                xx

Chanel Resort 2012

Resort has been popping up here and there, and last week the Alexa Chungs and Rachel Bilsons of the world headed to Antibes, France.  It was said that this showing was a bit different than last year's spot, the former fishing village that didn't quite aspire to the Hotel du Cap, also known as, St. Tropez.  This resort collection ranged from swimmies to suits and gowns for beach weddings.  Karl even accessorized his looks with real jewels and sparklers, making Karolina Kurkova's armhole resemble a comet.  "Too much may not be enough," said the most genius man on the block.                    xx
