Donna Karen Blood Red…

In Object's of Desire on October 15, 2013 at 10:38 am

OK… So I’m browsing the internet hoping to find a dress for a major event I have to attend next month, and I come across this beauty in Donna Karen’s signature body conscious draping.  It is so out of my price range {and not really the style I was looking for at the moment}, but I had to post, because I love it!!! Price tag $1895!!! Available at Neiman Marcus, if you’re so inclined.

Zara copy anyone?

From The Archives ~ “My Fragrance For 2012”

In Daily Musings on April 11, 2013 at 12:17 pm

While going through past posts, I decided today would be archive day.  Here is a post which was originally published in March of 2012 {with minor formatting changes}.  When I look back on my past posts, I see how far I’ve come with my writing, and if I do say so, I’m quite proud of myself 🙂 Don’t you feel the same about your own writing?

 If I’m in the mood, I might post another from the archives…  So stay tuned!  Happy Thursday Darlings, we’re nearly there.

I’ve decided upon Bvlgari Mon Jasmine Noir.  This is truly a beautiful fragrance which is already a classic for me.  This is the lighter version to the much heavier and in my opinion pungent Jasmine Noir, which reminds me too much of Opium by Yves Saint Laurent {remember that one ladies?}.

I’ve been a fan of Bvlgari fragrances for some time, especially the Bvlgari Rose Essentielle.  Mon Jasmine Noir has top notes of golden citron and floral lily of the valley with of course the elegant Jasmine. Sprayed lightly (very important, you don’t want everyone in the elevator to pass out!) you can have yourself a daily “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” moment.  Treat yourself! Available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks.

My Target + Neiman Marcus Moment…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on December 1, 2012 at 7:53 am

Well Dahhlings, it’s finally here! The legendary partnership between Target and Neiman Marcus. What do I think? Well I logged on at 6:30 a.m. this morning looking to be completely wowed and I WASN’T.  Everything just looked a little blah and inexpensive, I was going to use the word cheap, but decided to be nice!  Now before you start screaming, remember this is just my personal opinion.  Yes I know it’s Target (which I love, who doesn’t?), but the collab between them and Liberty of London is still my overall favourite, and nothing has really compared, except the Missoni duvet set, sheets and shower curtain {which I sadly didn’t get}.

The Target website seemed pretty limited, so I’m sure there is so much more in the stores.  I did see some nice things in the lookbook which did not appear online, so again maybe you just have to go to the store.

The only items which caught my eye, were the Carolina Herrera stationary set, the Brian Atwood leather gloves and the Alice + Olivia bike at $499.  Also, I really liked the Tracy Reese blouse and ceramic plates.  I  did order the stationary set for myself and my sister because we both love paper  {I still might order the Tracy Reese plates}.  I thought about the Brian Atwood gloves long and hard, but again, I just wasn’t moved by them.  If they’re still around and I see them in person (which I doubt), and the quality is nice, I might cave in.  If you find items you love in the collection, or just your thoughts about it, let me know.  Visit www.target.com

Happy shopping!

The Many Colours Of Tom Ford…

In Daily Musings, Object's of Desire on November 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm

 

I haven’t written an Objects Of Desire post in a little while, but here’s one that caught my attention a few days ago.  Mr. Tom Ford has released a complete set of his beautiful nail lacquers exclusively for Neiman Marcus priced at $480.00! 

This  exclusive 16 colour set has every possible shade you would ever need to carry your chic wardrobe from now to next spring/summer to enhance your chic wardrobe.  Tom Ford nail lacquers retail for approximately $30 dollars each; why would you buy a $30 nail lacquer?  Because you’re absolutely worth it! Again this is an Object of Desire, so maybe Santa will leave this under the tree for you, if you’ve been good this year.

Visit Neiman Marcus here

Well today is back to work Monday, after our long 4 day weekend. This is the real countdown to Christmas; how is your gift buying going?  Have you started? Are you going to wait until christmas eve; or are you just buying a little something for you?

Have yourselves a Positive, Productive and Exhilarating week!

 

Countdown To The Target & Neiman Marcus Collaboration…

In Daily Musings on November 19, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Happy Monday Dahhlings, well believe it or not this is Thanksgiving week! Where did the time go?   A moment ago we were simmering to a boil in 100 degree heat, now we’re staring Thanksgiving and Christmas in the face. Did this year fly by or what?  As you’re well aware, this is the official start of the holiday shopping season. What are you treating yourself to?

This brings me to the legendary partnership between Target and Neiman Marcus, which starts December 1, could there not be a better pairing? Two of my favourite stores to say the very least.  For me this is nothing short of BRILLIANT!

This is such a big deal that the purchase quantity is limited to 5 per item {no fighting ladies!}.  With 24 of some of the most leading designers, such as: Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, Diane von Furstenberg, Brian Attwood, Alice+Olivia, the list goes on, this is sure to be one coveted collection.  {and of course they’ll show up on eBay at some astronomical prices}.

Are we going to have another Missoni for Target stampede, which crashed Target’s website for hours?  Stay tuned!

For more info on this legendary collaboration click here

Happy Monday Luvvies, have a Productive, Amazing and an extra Chic Monday.

 

TOM’s Ballet…

In Charities, Daily Musings, New Loves! on April 27, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Update 5/1 – I just found these and I like them too!! Which do you prefer?

 

Original Post 4/27 ~ Wow… I’m really late posting today, once again I’m  juggling 10,000 things, but it’s been a fantastic and beautiful day.  Here’s today’s post!

I’ve been seeing TOM’s shoes around for some time now, I love the charitable cause they represent.  With every pair of  TOM’s purchased, the company donates a pair to a person in need.  TOM’s was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie who had the idea to design and sell lightweight shoes based on the espadrille.   I hadn’t purchased a pair because I’m not a huge fan of flat espadrilles, but then… TOM’s created these stylish slip ons, the Meridian Leather and Burlap ballet flat!  I absolutely love them, and at $135.00 a pop, they’re an affordable option compared to some others. 

See them here: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/page/abtest/product.jsp?itemId=prod143130033&navid=YMALtoproduct

When not wearing 4″ heels (or more), I love to wear my ballet flats for running around doing errands and what not.  I’m glad that TOM’s has finally created a shoe, which I don’t mind wearing, and at the same time I can make a contribution to a worthwhile cause.  There are other beautiful colours and styles available at  http://www.toms.com/, Neiman Marcus and other stores.

Have a fabulous and inspired weekend Dahhlings!!
