pretty pucci

spring is almost here and pucci prints always give me that yearning for tanned skin and warm sun! lucky us, i just picked up two beautiful, vintage pucci pieces.

the first is a 1950's bag. the inside reads "emilio pucci florence - italy".

the second is a 1960's wallet with the most beautiful, taupe leather inside.

these are truley amazing finds that will be selling as part of my spring collection. if you would like to know more about each piece, please call the store at 267-528-1625.

va va voom

ashley olsen and chloe sevigny flaunted their best cocktail garb for the golden globe after parties. royal blue satin on ashley is absolutely beautiful and chloe... well, you're perfect.

i'm just sayin'...

i think lv's knit poncho for pre fall '10 is dreamy.

i'm not a big fan of talking of the phone, but she makes it look fun.

i'd love to own one of kime buzzelli's paintings.

i'm still in love with balmain. the entire rtw spring '10 collection makes my heart flutter.

i don't think we're ever too old to send friends a valentine. i love these pretty pastel cards by anthropologie.

outdoor receptions are my favorite. they seem like a lot of work, but well worth it.

ok. that's all for now.

hearts are everywhere

last night the bf surprised me with a bag of short bread cookies in the shape of hearts. i just love the feeling of february and valentine's day! who doesn't love seeing pink and hearts everywhere?? even when i didn't have a boyfriend, dinner and a movie with friends is the best. last year my mom and i went to dinner and i had way too much wine. i passed out during "confession's of a shopaholic", but it's still a great memory. anyway...

he has my heart. that's it.

there are so many amazing bags i'd love to get my hands on right now...

i love the unexpected mix of leather and canvas in this marc by marc jacobs bag.

this cc skye bag has the rocker/bohemian vibe i adore. black fringe will always have a place in my heart.

alexander wang's diego bag in this beautiful neutral hue is perfection.

there's nothing i don't like about a bucket bag. the mix of gray leather and silver studs is such a great combination on this edgy cleobella bag.

this brown tassle shoulder bag by sl mcfaden is the perfect shade of brown that will last through the warm months too. i need this in my life.

i like everything about this

i love a good blazer and some lace up booties. i love the pretty blues mixed with black. i love a thick pair of tights. i love her smart glasses and starbucks cup. i'm pretending it's a sugar free vanilla soy latte. hope you are having a wonderful wednesday!

my picks for best dressed

here are my picks for best dressed at last night's golden globes. in my opinion drew, anna, courtney, cameron, chloe, january, emily, jennifer, and sandra stole the show. (click on the images to enlarge them.)

looking back on the night i loved the red carpet, the tribute to director martin scorsese, and now look forward to seeing best film winner "avatar".
