I've professed my love for Michael Kors' tortoise watches in past posts. And I am so happy to post that my obsession became a reality this weekend, I bought the Two-Tone Jet Set Watch in Tortoise and Gold. I have to admit it was a tough decision, I first fell for the Oversized Tortoise Watch (pictured on my wrist below), but the extra gold on the 2-tone strap won out.

I am on my way to the desert, headed to a girls' weekend in Vegas. I am going to get my Ginger McKenna on... sans the drugs and man hunting, although I do plan on indulging in a drink or two. I will post again on Monday. Have a great weekend, I know I will.

I am in vacation mode, even though I don't leave for my trip until Thursday. I am sad to report I am already packed, yes I am that excited. One of my outfits is a well tailored navy blazer and fitted jeans. I think it's the perfect outfit for lunch, sight-seeing and possibly a cocktail or two. Here is a version of my outfit, although I don't have an adorable satin clutch.

I absolutely adore Anna Dello Russo's outfit. I love the deep plum plumage of the skirt with the tissue thin lilac knit top, they meld together perfectly. And the necklaces... at first glance I thought they were Ethiopian Coptic crosses and was so excited that she layered two of them, unfortunately, they are not. But if she had it would have been a great touch. I included an example of Ethiopian Coptic crosses below, just in case you are unfamiliar with them.

Recently, during a shopping trip with a friend she impulsively picked up a pair of kids over-sized pink sunglasses and put them. Ready to laugh I was surprised to see how chic and trendy she looked. The lesson I learned that afternoon, don't forget to check out the kids department and consider a pair of pink shades for spring.

Do you have something fun planned tonight? If not, follow Carine Roitfeld (former Editor-in-Chief, Vogue Paris) lead and go booth dancing. This fashion doyen turned an Indochine banquette into her own private dance floor. Looks like fun... doesn't it!

Lauren Conrad’s new line, Paper Crown is a little underwhelming. Her frocks are beyond simple and definitely wearable, but they feel a lot like what you could find at any mid-price chain store. Don't get me wrong, I'm really not knocking her new line, I just expected more wow pieces. It'll be interesting to see how this brand evolves as she comes into her own as a designer.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti's Fall 2011 Collection is a nice departure from the prerequisite colors of Autumn. The soft and kitteny knits are delicious. This showing certainly tickles my fancy, but would you feel comfortable wearing this palette in October?
My most recent personal "style" campaign is convincing a good friend that she CAN pull off wearing a headscarf. So far, my efforts have been futile. But for your consideration I have several stylish and complimentary examples that demonstrate the right way to wear a headscarf.

I just purchased some new sunglasses, completely out of character for me. Really, I am more of a squint into the sun kind of gal. But, emerging wrinkles have me singing a different tune. Now, I just have to remember to wear them. What do you think... too boring?

Today, I am daydreaming about being in Cannes and this is the outfit I am wearing. This winter has been too long. I really must increase the amount of pretty things I look at to combat cabin fever.

Here it is: Rachel Zoe's 1st collection up close and personal. We saw a quick glimpse of her collection a couple weeks back, but now the full collection is out and it looks even better. The snug as a glove beaded black suit is smashing. I do hope Rachel lets Anne Hathaway wear it at the Oscars!

I am not sure if Porter Grey (actually) shot their Summer lookbook in the elegant seaside resort town of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, but these shots certainly remind me of the breath-taking peninsula. Sidenote: I like the clothes too, especially that first little red number.

It seems like everyone is coming out with a horizontal striped blazer for Spring. I bought the Calvin Klein Striped Ponte Blazer for a work trip last month and I can speak from experience that this jacket is not a wall flower, you will command a lot of attention once you commit to this trend.

The carefree color and ease of a silk blue blouse can be so effortlessly chic. Imagine wearing one on a warm spring day with a pair of cropped skinnies and ballet flats. A definite head-turner!

Zara you're crafty, teasing us by releasing only a few of your looks for Summer. Well, it worked. I can barely contain myself. What else do you have in store for us? So far, I am very intrigued and desperately in need of that hot pink tuxedo jacket on Stella Tennant. Check out more of the upcoming collection @ FabSugar.
