The Pink Suit

Not many can wear a pink evening suit, so bravo Mary Kate, you looked amazing at the 2011 CFDA Announcement party. And don't think I forgot about you Ashley, that red python clutch is TDF.

The 2011 "IT" Bag

It's a bold move to announce the "IT" bag for the year what with it only being March, but I am going for it! I am head over heels for the DVF's Harper Daybag, more specifically the chocolate brown version. The detail work is divine and that tassel; words cannot express my love for the tassel!

Bejeweled

Kate Spade's enchanted garden bib necklace is so optimistic and bright. I think I could stare at it all day.

Shady Disposition

Today's a sunny one, I think I need a hat to keep the sun out of my eyes. How about the fetching Anya Hindmarch Trilby Straw and Grosgrain Ribbon Hat? Now, I only need to decide the color.

Dapper Monday | Veronica Beard

I thought I would kick off the week with some pieces from Veronica Beard. I love this lines aesthetic and I desperately want the v-neck dress (#1).

Tease, whip and roll. I am loving the modern pompadour. I think even with my short do I can still sport this fierce style. Thoughts?

Sheer Vanity

I love this boudoir tray, spotted on Erin Ever After, it has perfect symmetry with the most lovely collection of frames, products and bowls of trinkets. I could do without the heavy thick hipster frames, but everything else is perfection.

Canvas Carry-All

One of my wants this spring is a white canvas tote with a little black or navy screen printing for accent. Here are some of my faves:

Under the Weather...

Dear Friends,

I apologize for my abrupt blogging hiatus. I contracted a terrible case of streptococcus pneumonia. Unfortunately, after several days of bed rest, antibiotics and no signs of improvement... I was hospitalized. I truly miss my daily sessions of cool hunting and I hope to be back at it later this week when I am stronger.

Take Care,
Beth

Slice of Sky

Phillip Lim's silk-chiffon sky blue peek-a-boo shirt is light-as-a-feather. It's like a delicious secret you let linger on your lips but don't dare tell another... shhhh, it's that good. Have a splendid weekend.

Terribly Cute Tees

Slashed, battered and no worse for the wear. These bad boy tees take no prisoners, #3 is my favorite. Happy Friday!

Sky High Wedge

Teeter above the masses with Diane von Furstenberg's opal linen wedge. The contouring of the heel is just masterful.

Weave Your Web

Etro's gold-plated multi-strand necklace is the perfect balance of chains and ornamentation. Is it expensive, oh yes, but I think this artifact of high style is worth every penny.

Instant Outfit | Ladies Who Lunch

A hodgepodge of patterns and textures that work in perfect harmony. I would have never thought to add a sailor shirt with Rebecca Taylor's Chanel-esque box-cut jacket, who knew?

In the Raw

These imperfect stones are stunning. Conroy & Wilcox's 18K tumblecut garnet drops have an amazing raw beauty. I would pair them with a soft blush colored silk blouse.

Uptown | Downtown

The dame and the doll, two takes on the same trend and I love both equally. A slim elongating trousers paired with a fluffy, furry top. It'll make for a dramatic entrance at the fundraiser or the night club.
Michael Kors Fall 2011 | Alice + Olivia

Tattered Beauty

Michael Stars Raw Edge Eternity scarf will make you feel like your draping little tattered slices of sky around your shoulders. It's the perfect ensemble topper for Spring, don't you agree?

Faux Fur Funny Business

MSGM Pre-Fall 2011 collection seems a tad heavy handed with the faux fur. Wearing skunk striped arm warmers may not be for me, but I can't say I wouldn't be impressed if I saw a young lady sashay into a party wearing them. All in all, I like the odd direction this line is taking for fall.

High End | Low End

Long pendants and Lariats are sometimes the only accessory needed to make a wrap dress or simple top high-style. Two pieces I like in particular are a Titanic-esque blue stone and a ranch inspired rough and tumble number.

Tough Act to Follow

I adore, no love, no lust after this Balmain fire-engine red leather jacket. The mash-up of zippers, chains, safety pins and studs are a TSA agents nightmare. It is beyond gorgeous.

High Shine

A good friend fell in love with these cuffs at the Hermes store this weekend. I have to agree that they are strong and beautiful pieces, but unfortunately they come with hefty price tags. Oh why must so many pretty things be so expensive?
