We All Love Color

Zara top, Talbots skirt, Pour la Victoire shoes

Have I told you before that when I get dressed each day, I get dressed for myself?  Sometimes I'm lazy, sometimes inertia makes me go with my overall mood.  But sometimes to break out of how I feel about being overworked or how I feel about the dreary weather, I force myself to whip out the bright colors because they just make me happy.  That's what I did this morning with this bright orange Zara top, candy colored striped skirt from Talbots and sky high Pour la Victoire platforms.   This evening, after another long workday instead of going straight home and scrounging up whatever is in my fridge, I took myself out for some sushi.  A woman a couple of seats down from me struck up a conversation about how she loved the bright orange, stripes and bright color in general.  And even though I do this for myself, it really is nice to know that in some small way, it makes someone else happy too.

Weekend Tidbits

YSL wedges

I finally got the chance to wear the very, very high (but very, very fabulous) YSL wedges.

Tucker for Target dress, Baleciaga bag, YSL shoes, Aris Geldis necklace

And in classic high street meets high end, the YSL's were worn with a Tucker for Target dress.

I got some gorgeous tulips and peonies to brighten up my day.

Chanel mimosa polish

I love being freshly manicured, here with Chanel mimosa polish.

Chanel ring

I picked up my ring that had been out for repair and it was like a gift to myself all over again!

And an already sweet weekend was made even sweeter by cupcakes (lemon and red velvet).

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Taunted by Miu Miu and Prabal Garung for J Crew

Isn't it so considerate that one's favorite stores will taunt you via email with items you might enjoy? Miu Miu was kind enough to email me today. Do you think they know about my shoe fetish? Or about my obsession with all that is Miu Miu?  Below are my latest shoes to covet. I think my sister and friend are in cahoots with Miu Miu because they also emailed these shoes to me today knowing that I would love them. Hmmm, maybe it's a sign that they are looking for a home in my closet. It will be crowded but they will be in very good company!

My other latest obsession is with Prabal Garung for J Crew. I mean, I'm a sucker for just about anything with an oversize bow.

Party in the Park

This week has been chock full of parties and philanthropic endeavors and the Party in the Park was to benefit the Liff Fund for the Emerald Necklace. Despite the cold and rain, the party was gorgeous (and thankfully under a tent).





The exquisite flowers were from Winston Flowers.

The tables just looked magnificent!











But the real stars of the party were the hats and fascinators. Oh why doesn't this town have more occasions for hats?

And here is Elisha in her hat and me in my fascinator. Getting gussied up in hats is fun but the people watching was just divine!

Teri John dress, Christian Louboutin pumps, Lauren Elan necklace, fascinator from Elisha's shop

And at the request of the lovely Milla, here is a picture of the dress.
