Black Friday


 I'll do anything to avoid waking up early and being stuck in hoards of people clamoring for the deal of the season. I vote instead of the day after Thanksgiving being "Black Friday" it officially be changed to "LBD Friday". Here are some little (and one long) lovelies from one of my favorite-est of online shops, ASOS.

Just can't get enough


Are you bored yet? Obviously all that I've wanted to buy recently has been party outfits! I just can't get enough fabulous dresses and glittering accessories. Bear with me, I'm sure it's a passing phase!

Blue Skies Smiling


I love wintery pastels! It's just fall, I know, and we are still a ways away until winter, but I want this outfit now!

Now I ain't sayin she's a gold digga


I super love this Gold Digger necklace! I didn't even realize Endless.com had jewelry, but their selection is great. Plus, who can beat ordering it one day and receiving it the next! Perfect for holiday shopping.

it's back!


It's back! I ordered this necklace in September and had to wait wait wait for it to arrive because it was on backorder. I was so excited the day I received it I had to blog about it immediately (here!). Sadly for all though, this fab necklace had vanished from Piperlime's website. 
Well, It's Back! It's Back! Snatch one up quickly and you should receive it just in time for the new year.

As You Wish


Today's 'As You Wish' post was a request from a highschool friend / facebook friend who wanted to see some of my picks for leather goodies. Honestly, I could do an entire week of leather, it's one of my favorite textiles for shoes and bags. Instead, I've just cherry picked a few items, all from ASOS. I love how it runs the gamut from super tough chick to lovely vintage lady.

Daily Spot


I love pairing over the knee socks with tights all through the fall and winter. With the bootie trend still in full swing it's so easy to them with sweet dresses and skirts from your summer/spring closets!

today i want to be natalie portman


Call it a case of wanting to be everything you are not, I have always had major envy and major love for Natalie Portman. 
She's a super famous actress, 
I've been in a couple of low budget horror flicks (didn't you know? see me in this, this, this and this)
She's been a dancer since the age of four, 
I was born pigeon toed and struggled through years of training only to achieve getting my feet straight.
She's a style icon and lovely 5'3 muse of Zac Posen, 
I'm a style blogger and 6'0 muse of my husband (not so shabby on that note!)

Anyway, last week on TopShop's blog they featured an upcoming thriller she is staring in called Black Swan. It caught my attention for so many reasons. A) It stars Natalie Portman (duh!) B) the movie posters are to die for art deco style C) I super duper looooove thrillers D) rumors abound of lots of sexual tension and action not only between guys and gals but also gals and gals (how risqué!) E) It's directed by Darren Aronofsky of Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler fame and F) Did I mention Winona Ryder? just to name a few. Here's hoping the movie is as good as I've hyped it up to be!

can't we do it again?


Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary! I am just as happy with my husband now as I was the day we were wed, but I feel a little bit sad because I wish I could have a lovely wedding party every year! Treating guests to good food, good booze and good company was such a special experience for me. And of course, wearing a fantastical wedding gown! There were more woes than I care to remember revolving around "the dresses" and I am definitely not going to relive them here on my fun blog. What I will say is that after being coerced into trying on a Jenny Packham gown, I am a die hard fan. My husband and I made a pact not to go into debt over our wedding and we did our best to stick to it, so the Jenny Packham gown was completely out of my budget. Fortunately, in the end I wound up wearing a lovely vintage dress from Posh Girl Vintage, which truth be told was much more fitting for our intimate setting. 

Today's post is my "if I was a rich girl" Jenny Packham Monaco dress from her Fall 2009 collection, which I could not for the life of me find a picture that does the B.E.A.uuuuuuutiful dress justice, my actual wedding dress that I purchased from Posh Girl Vintage and four dresses from Jenny Packham's most recent collection

Three Cheers for Happily Ever After!

I'm in love with this!


I finally received this awesome necklace! I'm on my lunch break at work and just couldn't wait to share.  It's been on backorder from Piperlime for over a month, I hate when things don't ship right away. But some things are worth waiting for. Sad news for all my lovely readers though, I just went to Piperlime so I could show you were to purchase this gem and it's gone!! So sad. Here is the "sister" to it, which is cool too, but definately not the same.

It seems DC has finally made a more permanent turn to fall weather, and thankfully so as I have so very many coats I am in love with! Couldn't resist re"today i want"ing the Hidden getaway Jacket!
