Jeffrey Campbell Dupes

I love plaid all year round, but every year when September hits, it’s game on.  But you know what I’m the most excited to share with you guys today?  These booties!  They are absolute perfect dupes for my favorite Jeffrey Campbell version, but are only $40!  I seriously couldn’t believe it when I saw them.  And they’re great quality and super comfy too.  A definite must-have for your Fall wardrobe this season.  But they do run a little small, so I would recommend sizing up a 1/2 size.

Emerald City

A while back, I wrote this post about emerald, Pantone’s color of the year. And given its current popularity, coupled with the opening of Oz The Great and Powerful tonight, what can I say? Emerald is on my mind…

Pink Punch

I am finding that my bright pink Kate Spade bag is the perfect complement to so many outfits. And since pink and navy is one of my absolute favorite color combos ever, it was obviously the perfect accessory choice to brighten up a little blue on blue.

I am finding myself becoming obsessed with hot pink lipstick as of late. And although I feel a little funny when I wear it (it is awfully bright!), I can’t seem to stop.  My current favorite?  MAC Candy Yum Yum.  So in this season where bright lips rule, make sure it’s a trend you experiment with at least once or twice!

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree…

I love attending Christmas parties. The festivities and spreading of cheer create such a palpable joy in the air and there is so much to celebrate and be thankful for. But I also love Christmas parties because they give me the perfect excuse to wear…SEQUINS!! And while I think sequins are acceptable all year round, there is just something that makes them extra special during the holiday season…

J and I attended a White Elephant party this weekend and had a fabulous time.  It was nice to share an evening of laughter with friends that are very dear to us.  With the unimaginable events that unfolded in Newtown, CT on Friday, I am reminded more than ever this holiday season to be grateful for the abundant blessings in my life and to hold to tightly to the ones I love.  My heart and thoughts and prayers are with the heroes and angels who lost their precious lives that day, and also with all of those who survived or have been touched in one way or another by this horrendous tragedy.

   God bless you Newtown, Connecticut.
