YOU GUYS. I GOT THE BAG.
They said it might not be possible, they said it couldn’t be done. But here she is, in my life to stay! If you haven’t read the backstory on The Bag, you should check it out here. It’s worth a read. Or 5. Honestly, if you want, I’ll totally act it out for you.
Now that the bag has an official place in the family (“No exaggeration, I could not love a human baby more than I love this bag” – Name that quote, I dare you), we have dropped the “The,” and just call her “Bag” (she gets her own seat on car rides).
Welcome to the family Bag! We couldn’t be happier you’re here!
Holla y’all. One of my favorite style-makers/awesome people I’d really like to be friends with in real life is launching a flash sale on One Kings Lane tonight at 6pm! I have an alert set on my calendar, and if any of you suckers swoop in and buy one of the things I want….well, you have great taste 🙂
Let’s talk Emily for a second.
This is her:
Cutest thing ever. Am I wrong? Emily is one of the winners of Design Star, and she hosts Secrets Of A Stylist on HGTV. And on top of being super cute and sweet, she loves Gossip Girl, The Bachelor, and being generally fun and quirky and awesome. I’m convinced we’re soul mates.
Is it just me, or lately have you been ogling over men’s style more that women’s? There’s just something about a well dressed man that floats my fancy.
Here’s some of my favorite men’s street style shots from NYFW via the amazing Tommy Ton…
Personally, I shop for husband exclusively at J. Crew. Ladies where is your favorite place to shop for the men in your life? Men, where are your favorite one-stop shops?
I’m a firm believer in mood boards – as in, I won’t redecorate a room without creating a mood board. It’s just too dang helpful to NOT do. There are so many times that all of us (you, me, your neighbor, your neighbors mom) have gone out and purchased a bunch of new things only to get them home and go “Huh. That doesn’t really look like I thought it would in this room” OR “Huh. That looks okay, but there is definitely something missing. Why oh why didn’t I buy that bright pink giraffe poster!?” Okay, so maybe not a giraffe poster, but you get the point. Mood boards help you to see how things work together, but also highlight what’s missing before you’ve really even started.
To get your juices flowing, here’s a recent mood board I created for a friend with a daughter who’s towards the beginning of her teen years. They’re renters, so they’re not allowed to paint (this should be outlawed – can I get an “Amen!”), so the goal was to bring in a lot of color to the white-walled-white-carpeted room.
So let’s see it! Send me links to your mood boards, I wanna check ’em out!
