One More Christmas Fav

My new horizontal vintage garden necklace from Lily Pottery. 'Cept, mine's purple, of course!

My Christmas Round Up

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, good times with friends & family, and celebrated the reason for it all-the birth of our Savior! My Christmas was busy (isn't it always?) but lots of fun. Here's a round up of some of my favorite gifts that I received this year.

This AWESOME deviled egg plate from Anthro, courtesy of my sis. Check out her blog here.

Many Anthro Gift Cards...hard to beat!

My Hamilton Beach Stay-Or-Go 6 quart Slow Cooker.

My new, very cushy bathrobe from Bath & Body Works. The collar is infused with Shea butter for extra softness!

Anthro Things That I'm Digging

We did Christmas with some of our family today...I got 2 Anthro gift cards and there's another one under the tree that's just taunting me! Decided to start making my wish list b/c I will be in the same zip code as an Anthro brick & mortar store in a couple of weeks.

Digging This Look

I've always been a fan of Ashlee Simpson. ("on a monday, i am waiting, tuesday...") I've loved seeing her hair change over the years (and her nose!) and the different outfits she pulls together. I saw this picture and I'm totally digging the entire look.

Head-To-(Mistle) Toe

Head-To-(MIstle) Toe

Just entered my first Polyvore contest. Just so happens to be for Anthro! Compared to the other entries, mine is really simple but, it was my first time using Polyvore so, I wasn't 100% sure of what I was doing. However, I LOVE the look I created and would definitely wear every single piece in the collection!

Gap Things I'm Digging

You know, when it comes down to it, I'm a jeans and tee shirt kind of girl. That might sound simple and boring but, I would argue that it's anything BUT! You just have to pair it with the right shoes, jewelry, outerwear, etc. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect jean and tee. Over the past couples of years The Gap has been my go-to spot for these items. Great variety mixed with awesome prices make me so happy!

This tee is my current fav. I have 3 so far. I have layered with a printed tank and, today, with a solid long sleeved tissue tee. These jeans are SO comfy and very flattering..I'm a HUGE fan of a flare jean!

AND, did you know that Gap at Haywood Mall is offering 40% off 1 regular priced item every Wednesday in December???!!

And My Nordstrom Wish List Just Keeps Growing

Sadly, I had to retire one of my favorite long, open front, purple cardis this season b/c it was just too pilled and picked. So, I'm on the hunt for a new one. These 2 are definitely on my radar even though they aren't purple..well, the solid one does come in plum but I almost think I'd rather have it in the gray pictured above.

striped one available here.

We have a winner! I've been searching for the perfect rain boot for the last 2 years. I got these from Target and they've been great but the flannel on them just screams "winter!" so they aren't the most season-appropriate in the spring or summer. Well, I got my Nordstrom catalog today and found the babies shown above and I am in love! I already have these Target/Steve Madden knock-offs which are similar (i got gray with a red zipper) but, the Nordstrom ones are true rain boots and I am THRILLED that my search is over! Be sure to check out the other color options...I'm going with the olive/orange combo. Now bring on the rain!!!
(oh, and yes, they may be a bit pricey but, i figure i've saved so much money with all of my Target boots that it's fine for me to splurge a bit on these:)) (and while I'm justifying, the Hunter wellies that I've been wanting are about $150 so these Maddens are a definite bargain! )

You Can't Always Be Right

Just yesterday I saw this pic of Anne Hathaway and I thought to myself "Man! She ALWAYS gets it right! I've never seen her look bad!".... And then, today, I came across this.

It was kind of a let down.

Fashion Fail

This ensemble is bad enough from the front but, and I think most will agree, the back is a definite fashion fail!

I'll Huff and I'll Puff

You might remember this post from last year. Well, I was at The Gap today and they have a thin puffer vest in a slew of colors that I thought was really cool looking. The client I was with got the pink one shown above and we put it with this top and jeans. She had an audition for a commercial (for a grocery store) and needed to look bold and outdoorsy while still looking fashionable. She can then use both of these pieces again throughout the Winter and even into Spring! And here's a little tip, for the month of November, The Gap at Haywood Mall is offering 40% off 1 regular-priced item on Wednesdays and Thursdays. That's hard to beat!

And Now...

for the special invitation that I teased about yesterday.....

My bud, Teresa, over at Art & Light is hosting a trunk show for artist Ashley Buchanan this Saturday, November 20 from 11AM until 5pm. Aren't her pieces GORGEOUS?! I love how she mixes metal, a typically "tough" and "industrial" material with pretty, feminine shapes. Please stop by (tell Teresa I sent you!) and check out her hand-cut metal earrings, cuffs and necklaces. These would make a great Christmas gift for someone or a little gift "to me from me" as I like to say:) At $25-$85, there's something for everyone! There's just something about wearing a unique piece of jewelry made by a local artist, sold at a local gallery that makes me smile! You can view her Artist Statement below.

"Faux Real is a series I am currently working on that investigates our perception of value, specifically in jewelry. The use of imagery is important to my work in order to establish a familiar identity between the viewer and the object. I am interested in a reality that exists through images and representations and how the appearance of an object can substitute for the original. In Society of the Spectacle, Guy Debord writes about the effects of a production obsessed society and a resulting transformation of reality into the image of reality. By combining less expensive materials with iconic shapes of jewelry, I create new simplified pieces that continue the tradition of hand crafted jewelry and metals with a clean contemporary aesthetic."

Art & Light is located in the Pendleton Arts District at 1211 Pendleton Street. It's in the super cool Flat Iron building. For directions please click here. Hope to see you there!
