keep dreaming.

((this photo c/o "What I Wore" blog--from NYFW--she actually WENT))

So when I saw the pictures from Kate Spade's line from this Spring's New York Fashion Week, I was immediately in love with the 60's inspired Jackie O meets Twiggy vibe. But above all, that coat is just plain and simply the most fabulous coat to date. Lord knows I have plenty of coats in my closet but none whose beauty surpass this. Too bad the price tag on this coat will probably be a little (a LOT) out of my league & the odds of finding a classy knock off, well-- I'll just keep dreaming...

currently on repeat.

I stumbled upon this amazing artist a few years back in the 'myspace' days & her beautiful, completely unique voice totally had me smitten--or my ears, anyway. :)

Tuesday, Adele's sophomore cd '21' was released as a follow up to her first, '19' and it did not disappoint. It's perfect and lovely and you should definitely go buy it. Now.

Unicorn Shoes.

"Michelle" by Jeffrey Campbell. Retails for $119

So I spotted these shoes by Jeffrey Campbell about a year ago and fell in love. I referred to them as "the unicorn shoes" because of the heel, and apparently so does everyone else because I googled 'unicorn shoe' and they popped right up! Well, the other night I found some fabbbb knock-offs at Burlington Coat Factory (i'm serious.) for, Wait for it, $14.99! Pure.Bliss.Moment.

My Shoes: Suede, not patent leather. But I like them better. Especially at $14.99. :)

oh, Judith

Judith March: A design favorite among girls in the south & known for beautiful mixtures of varsity color combinations perfect for any SEC gameday. I lean toward the orange & blue, obviously, but she even makes the houndstooth stuff look good.

Upside: fabulously cute dresses, unique fabrics, rosettes/bows/flowers (need I say more?) Downside: You can't order online (boo!) So, you have to go out and find a boutique that carries them. (This is yet another reason why I need to open a boutique in this shopping-forsaken town!)

Founder and designer, Stephanie Nichols is from Alabama and is now based out of North Florida. The dresses sell at her own boutique (Deja Vu) & other boutiques.

I adore each and every dress and would love to own them all :)

Please, go see for yourself. you will fall in love too.

I'm back. And so is LC ♥

So I kind of realize I am re-appearing from out of nowhere but life has been crazy hectic since we bought our house, changed careers, and well, changed careers again. But I am back & am going to try and post at least once or twice a week, if for no other reason but to have a creative outlet :)

Moving right along, I have lots of current obsessions but we'll start with the new Lauren C0nrad for Kohls line. Lots of bloggers & readers are calling her line boring, predictable, etc etc. "Didn't last years line look just like this with all of the florals, pastels, maxi dresses, and blazers?" Well of course it did, she's LC and she's safe and predictable! Safe, predictable, and FABULOUS. Runway fashion & couture is great but it's not realistic and Lauren's line is both realistic AND completely affordable.
