Neon Toes

This weekend I trudged around the woods with neon painted toes. The screaming orange warned woodland creatures and bugs to stay away. I can't wait to try out my yellow and green as well. All from American Apparel.

Little Jacket, Big Personality

Happy Friday! I will be offline for the next 4 days communing with nature. I will be back next Tuesday with some inspiring new posts. My last post before the long holiday weekend touches on one of my favorite things: a fitted, well-tailored jacket, nothing beats it! Here are four great ones. Cut and color are key!

High Dive

Holy heights Batman. I don't have vertigo, but I don't think I could swim in the Skypark Swimming Pool at Marina Bay Sands Hotel Singapore. The infinity pool is 55 floors above the streets of Singapore. Yikes. 

Blank Space | Furniture Wanted

This weekend I convinced my hubby to help me rearrange our living and dining room, not his favorite activity. Well, now after some significant furniture relocation I have a blank niche by the mid-century modern fireplace. I was thinking a little seating vignette will do the trick. Here's one idea:

Cannes Do Beauty

Zoe Saldana attends the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals in the most amazing gown. She is definitely a stand out on the red carpet this year!

Closet Stalking

I am feeling a whole lot of jealousy with a dash of desire. Suzanne Rogers closet is beyond decadent. The Canadian fashion icon not only has impeccable taste in clothes but she knows how to showcase them. Thanks to The Coveteur for this beautiful post.

Pretty Little Thing

Decked out in sparkles, fluttery tulle cap sleeves and naughty jet black... this Valentino sequin-embellished tulle and jersey T-shirt is one pretty little number.

Fine Feathered Friend

Feather extensions are an unusual trend making its mark with the twenty-set boho crowd... and Steven Tyler. These feathered extensions can be brushed, blow-dried, straightened and even curled and they can last up to four months, depending on how they are cared for, check out the Featherheads™ brand for easy insertion and maintenance.

What I Love...

Birthdays are big deal for me, so when it comes to celebrating I want to be surrounded by things that make me happy. Today, I strapped on a new pair of blush pink ribbon wedge sandals from Coach, I am having lunch with some of my darling coworkers and tonight...

I'll be watching Ralph Lauren on Oprah

Drinking a couple of these

Eating too much of this

And laughing so hard that I tinkle!

You Say It's Your Birthday...

... it's my birthday too! Yay! Big day of celebrating with coworkers and the family. Let the fun begin.

Channeling Your Inner Dominatrix

Hardcore sexy is not my thing, yet browsing through Bluefly's private "Hold Up" sale I was surprised at how often I clicked on biker chick heels. Hmmmm, may be I have some dominatrix characteristics lurking deep in my psyche. Check out some of the black beauties that made my list.

I just adore this summer ensemble by Milly. Especially the orange city shorts, love those gold buttons.

Bloomin' Brooches

I had a busy, yet wonderful weekend. My son and daughter celebrated their 7th birthday. We threw two big parties on Saturday and I recovered from them on Sunday by giving myself a Mother's day mani, Nars' Desperado. Now my mind is on accessorizing my outfit for the day, I have casting calls all day. Maybe I'll don a May flower?

Ashley Olsen was breath-taking at the 2011 Met Gala. She paired her vintage Christian Dior Haute Couture gown with Christian Louboutin shoes. I love the lean silhouette with the exaggerated sleeve.
