What I really, really want!

15 Feb

On sunday Victoria Beckham unveiled her Fall 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week.  Once again VB hit all the right notes in my book.  It was great to see her use bold colors in this collection, but most of my favorites were still based in neutrals.

And the perfect accessory for any of these outfits would be



Snow use

After much delay I think we’re actually boarding the plane to Hong Kong. Then it’s off to Manila! See you in 2 weeks.

They’re here, they’re here!

My necklaces from Stella & Dot arrived yesterday!  I’m so excited to wear them.

How cute are the boxes!

Happy Birthday Mom!

20 Jan

Today would have been my mom’s 65th birthday!  It’s crazy how time flies.  I miss you every day mom, and I love you.

The Little Gucci Dress

29 Dec

If you ask anyone who knows me who my girl crush is they will immediately tell you Victoria Beckham.  I think my love for all things Posh really started after seeing the movie Spice World when VB had to decide between “…the little Gucci dress, the little Gucci dress, OR the little Gucci dress.”  This single line pretty much summed up my ideal life. 

This woman has it all- great style, fabulous sense of humor, adorable kiddies, and of course the hottie hubby!

I was completely devastated when I had to return my DVR box to Comcast in order to install Fios because it contained the single most entertaining documentary of all time “Victoria Beckham: Coming to America.”

VB has often been criticized for her ridiculous airport attire, but I think she always looks fabulous.  And VB has openly admitted to changing into pajamas on the plane to be comfortable.  The woman is a genious…hot to trot for the papparazzi and super comfs for the transcontinental flight.  Here’s VB’s latest airport shot.  I think she looks super chic, and I’m totally digging the extra-long scarf.

She’s also carrying a bag from her new purse line.  As soon as the range is available in the US I’m going to be scooping up one of the “Victoria” bags.  It’ll cost a pretty penny, but it’s gonna be sooooo worth it!  Here’s VB carrying the black version.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho…

28 Dec

It’s back to work I go.  After a nice little snow day yesterday I’m back in the office 😦  It took me forever to get here this morning because sanitation crews are still clearing snow of some of the highways and most of the local streets.  Yet another shining example of tax dollars wasted.  On the bright side I’m only here for 2 days and then it’s vacation time AGAIN! 

New Years Eve is my least favorite holiday of the year.  I think it’s overhyped and always a hassle.  Since turning 21 I can recall a total of 1 enjoyable NYE…yes, a boy was involved 🙂  This year I’m staying in with some girlfriends- all of whom have police officer boyfriends who are working that night.  We’ll be cooking and drinking champagne all night, and also having a mini-movie marathon.  On the list are:

1) Love Actually– My favorite holiday romantic comedy.  I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats!  And that little girl who sings “All I want for Christmas is you” at the end of th movie gives me the chills she’s so good.

2) Despicable Me– I haven’t seen this one yet, but based on the trailer I know I’m going to love it.  Some of the memorable lines I’m looking forward to are “Curse you tiny toilet!” and of course the beloved “IT’S SO FLUFFY!!!”

I’ll be bringing my entire movie collection, which I have stored in one of those CD binders to save space, with me so if there’s time we’ll have plenty to choose from.  Maybe a little Teen Witch action is in order.  TOP THAT!

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

11 Dec

I know I already told you all my wish list for this year, but I think this one last item is worthy of an exception!  It’s the Net-a-Porter Ultimate Shoe Subscription.

One pair of shoes a month, with a total value of $10,000!!!!  UNREAL! 

Now, who can I finagle into gifting this to me come Christmas time???

Rabbit, Rabbit!

1 Dec

Happy December 1st!  If you can believe it, it’s a balmy 60 degrees here in NJ.  If only it was sunny, rather than rainy and gross.

Also HAPPY HANNUKAH!!!  Tonight marks the first night of the 8 day festival of lights.  I’ll be celebrating with my family over the weekend.  Hopefully they’ve been paying attention and got me a thing or two off my wish list.

1) 2011 Infiniti G37X sedan in Black Obsidian
2) Chanel Classic Caviar medium flap bag
3) a leopard print tote bag
4) David Yurman woven cable ring
5) Burberry Mega Check wrap in Charcoal Check
6) Ugg Bailey Button boots in black
OK, the car and the Chanel are a bit of a stretch but you never know!
On a side note, I came across the most amazing picture of 2 of my most favorite people in the world! 

It’s creepy that Barry Manilow is wearing more make-up than VB…but I love him anyway 🙂

Black is Back!

30 Nov

I’ve finally arisen from my tryptophan coma.  While I didn’t risk my life and venture out into the war zone that is Black Friday, I did manage to find some extra special savings online.  Here’s what I got:

NY& Co. was having 50% off EVERYTHING!  And Ann Taylor was 40% off EVERYTHING!  How can you say no to bargains like that!?!  My NY&Co. package was delivered today…I can’t wait to try my loot on when I get home 🙂

I also purchased these lovelies from Neiman Marcus:

I can’t wait for them to arrive 🙂

Did any of you brave the Black Friday jungles? How’d you make out?
