Mod Squad

I've been seeing ads for ModCloth online for a while now, but only recently did I really explore their website. They have a great range of cute and affordable clothes and accessories. Check out these dresses!


Check please. I'm crazy about the color-blocking down the side of this dress.


So maybe this one is a little costume-y, but it would be a cute costume!


An easy, modern, beachy sundress.


A cute summery cocktail dress. Looks like it may have pockets!


And another one! I really like the lace at the neckline.

Pink and Orange Challenge: Day 23

Last Friday I wore one of my most favorite pink and orange pieces: a pink wool blazer from J. Crew. I got it for my birthday a couple of years ago and I love it.

Look! I'm outside! It may be getting dark at 5:30 these days, but I insisted.


Check out the fabulous buttons on the blazer! So perfect. Also, Jud told me that you're supposed to leave the first cuff button undone so that people know that your jacket has real, functional buttonholes. I'm not sure if this is as steadfast as the "never button the bottom front button" rule, but I'll trust that he knows more about blazers than me.


I bought these Steve Madden moccasins in grad school, when I absolutely could not afford them (or anything else for that matter). I saw them at Macy's with a friend, didn't get them, but couldn't stop thinking about them, so I finally went back. They're a little beat up now, but hopefully I can get them repaired.

Turkey Time

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Right Puff

I've never owned a puffer vest, but after seeing this cute one from J. Crew and eying Jud's brown American Apparel one, I'm curious. Jud's isn't all that puffy, which I like, and this one looks similar.



I'd imagine it'd be good for Saturday morning errands. Also, the belt is a nice touch.

Invitational

I may have been married for over a year now, but out of habit, I still sneak a peak at a few wedding blogs from time to time.

Snippet and Ink featured several invitation designs from Minted a while back, and I loved this one by Sarah Lenger. It was one of over 300 designs submitted to the "Love at First Serif" challenge. Winners haven't been announced, but I hope this one makes the cut!

Snow Shoe

Logically, I know these knitted slippers from Kate Spade are both impractical and ridiculous. But I still totally want them.

Pink and Orange Challenge: Day 22

One of these days, really and truly, I am going to have Jud take my picture before 11 pm. And if we're lucky, maybe even in natural light. Remember those days?

Until then, you get me, at 11 pm, in pink and orange PJs. Enjoy.

Well-Heeled

In response to those cute little girl flats from J Crew come these sophisticated, grown-up pumps. Simply fabulous.


And yes, the copper gets to count as orange.

A Sign of the Times

This fantastic screenprint by Jeff Canham is up for auction on Ebay. Isn't it delightful?! Right now the bidding is up to $55, but I have a feeling it will creep much higher.


And while we're at it, check out these other awesome signs by Jeff Canham.

Atticus Cinch

Yet another fantastic rug, Atticus, from good old Angela Adams. She does no wrong.

ABC 123

I can't think of a cuter way for a little girl to learn her ABCs than this print from Petit Collage, at Branch.

Pink and Orange Challenge: Day 21

On Wednesday I wore a new shirt from Old Navy, a denim skirt, gray tights, and some woolly, woven flats.

This is the only photo where I didn't look totally goofy...so I'm looking off to the side.


A close-up of the cute pattern on my shirt. I think the flowers look a little like Ritz crackers.

Watch Out

My mom mentioned something to me about seeing a a pink patent leather watch at Nordstrom's the other day, so I did a little searching. Jackpot!

I'm guessing this Coach watch was it? And I LOVE it. It's such an unusual shape, with the large oval face and skinny strap. I think the font of the orange numbers seals the deal though.



This was the header for the Coach watches page on the Nordstrom website, and thank goodness, because it reveals that the leather loops are orange. It just keeps getting better!

Sport It

Check out this cute new Liz Claiborne sportwear.

Love the stripes on the sleeves of this sweater.


And the buttons on the shoulder of this long-sleeved top.


A cozy sweatshirt.


And a festive holiday tee.

More here, here, here, and here.

Car-ried Away

I've been pining over the Smart Car ever since I went to Germany my junior year in high school. I was *this close* to getting one about a year ago, but in an effort to be fiscally responsible, I've forgone having a car altogether. With Jud's car and MARTA, it works out just fine.

Anyways, I think I've found a runner-up to the Smart Car. It's this adorable custom-job Citron, by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. Awesome!

Hand in Hand

Kate Spade has new a new product line called Hand in Hand, created in partnership with Women for Women International, who helps women in war-torn nations. And, not surprisingly, the results are cute and cheery.

A pull-through scarf with pom-poms.


Matching mittens.


And a hat to complete the set.


And for the doggy set, there is matching sweater for Fido!

Pink and Orange Challenge: Day 20

On Thursday I wore my birthday dress from Jud and an orange sweater. A little more subtle than some previous Challenge days, but with my cowboy boots, it was super cute.

But then I came home and watched CNN and called my parents back in Texas and also watched NBC's Thursday night line-up and didn't feel like having my picture taken at 11:00 pm. So, anyways, here it is on a hanger.


I'll try to put together another outfit involving the dress, because it really is cute.

Room and Bold

This is my favorite kid's room I have ever posted. In fact, it may even be one of my favorite rooms period. I love a mix of patterns and rich colors all around. Throw in some clever furniture and spot-on accessories, and I'm sold.






Did I mention that this room belongs to a 4 YEAR OLD?! That just seems unfair.

11.04.2009

Argyle Style

Another find in the warm-winter-wear category. A cheery scarf and gloves from Nordstrom.

A Nice Slice

While looking for a dining room table (I know you are out there!), I came across these fun "slices" at Branch. As the website describes them, they look like what you would expect to find if you sawed down a tree in Candyland.

Seat slice is a chair pad.


Table slice is a trivet.

These are made by Zigzign, which makes all sorts of home decor out of these fantastical tree slices.

Under Where?

Gap has an "in for the night" and "out on the town" feature on their website.




Being more of an "in for the night" kind of girl, these boyshorts caught my eye.
