Lighten Up

My mom picked up some vintage Christmas lights at an antique store the other day. Why? Because they were pink and orange! The pink ones even have a pink Santa and pink and orange dots on the box.


Stocking Stuffers

Word gets around, so Santa now knows that I'm a fan of pink and orange. Here are some of the things he left under the tree and in my stocking this year.


Carry On

I've been meaning to post a photo of my laptop case for years (really), but because it spends a lot of time tucked away in my closet, I've just never gotten around to it. But, since I'm on the road, now seems like the perfect time!

I got it ages ago, before grad school, when I bought my first MacBook. Four and a half years later, the computer and the case are still going strong. The brand is Melissa Beth Designs, although they no longer carry this exact model.


Home for the Holidays

I'm in Texas for the holidays, so this week my posts are coming from the Lone Star State.

That cute little tree that I shared yesterday is a pink tinsel tree that my mom and I decorated with pink ornaments many years ago.

Today, I thought I'd share the awesome pink and orange quilt that she just completed for me. Amazing!


Happy Christmas!

Hope your day has been merry and bright!


Luxurious Leather

Today's luxury items: two leather handbags from Bottega Veneta. One orange, one pink. I like the braided handles.


Delight in Decor

The holidays are juuuuust around the corner. These fun items from Jonathan Adler would certainly brighten up the kitchen or dining table of anyone who is entertaining!

Butter dish.

Spoon rest.



Four Figure Footwear

Laura sent me a Nieman Marcus link with tons of fantastic (and suuuuupppper pricey) pink and orange shoes and handbags. I'll be sprinkling in these goodies in over the next week or so.

Today, Stella McCartney:


 Higher heels.


Flat Footed

This is a fun little pair of flats from Nine West!



Last night Jud and I swung by the Indie Craft Experience Pop-Up Shop at Criminal Records. I was hoping to find a Christmas gift or two, but instead I just ended up with a few things for myself.

I love these cute little bunny notepads from Missy Kulik. If you're in Atlanta, stop by the Shop before December 24 for some fun goodies.


Twinkle Toes

What do we think about these pink and orange ballet slippers from ASOS? I don't dislike them, but I can't figure out what you'd wear them with.


Sweater Set

I just glanced through my new J. Crew catalog and spotted this sweet striped sweater.


Color Me Happy

Pantone has announced the 2012 Color of the Year! As a reminder, this was last year's color: Honeysuckle.

And this year the color is................

Tangerine Tango! I love it! How awesome that pink was last year and orange is this year :)


Holiday Road, Part 2

Most of the things I've spotted over on Etsy are vintage, and therefore one of a kind. You can check them out on my sidebar, but (fortunately for the sellers) most of them have sold.

So, I picked out five awesome pink and orange prints from Etsy to share today. All still available. Wouldn't they look super cute grouped together?


Holiday Road

With the holidays just around the corner, I got to thinking about the pink and orange gifts that I got last Christmas. So, I thought I'd round up a few items from the blog from the past year that are 1. still in stock 2. less than $100 (I'm practical) and 3. I wouldn't mind getting for Christmas.

 Robot ornament.

Travel roll.

Suede wristlet.

Science print.

Pear mug.

So, you know, finding a couple of these under the tree might be pretty nice. Tomorrow I'll post a few links from some goodies I've spotted over on Etsy this year.


Deep V

I don't know about where you are, but the weather around here is ridiculous. Heavy coat one day, no need for a jacket the next day, possible snow storms looming for the weekend.

But, regardless of how extreme the temperatures are, I think this sweater dress from ASOS could totally work!


Deck the Halls

It is December 1, and I am super excited about these Kate Spade holiday cards. ADORABLE! And I love that they can be hung on the tree!

On an unrelated note, I snagged a pair of adorable black patent-leather flats in the recent sample sale. They arrived today (in a pink and orange box!), and they are beautiful. Keep an eye out for future sample sales!


Make Your Marc

Laura spotted this bold little Marcy by Marc Jacobs bag and sent me a link. Talk about a statement bag!

This bag is cousins with this guy.


Front and Back

I saw a link to this adorable DSquared2 sweater here, and then my buddy Leuwam emailed me about it too. Too bad it is a whopping $500, or I'd snap it up!


Happy Thanksgiving

Hope everyone is having a tasty turkey day!


Weekend Update

I did a little shopping on Sunday and, thanks to my new toy, I took a few photos to share.

Shoes at Nordstrom Rack. Steven Madden and Coach, respectively.

A dress and shoes at Urban Outfitters.

But here's what I ended up with: a dress, tights, and bracelet from J. Crew, all on super sale, and orange Hunter rain boots from Nordstrom Rack (also with a nice discount). Tempting as it may be, I promise not to wear all these things at once.

Also, I got a Kate Spade case for my iPhone, so I snapped a quick shot of the cute packaging.


Office Space

Big new: I got an iPhone! Expect to see lots more shots of pink and orange from when I'm out and about.

Today, I thought I'd share a quick shot of some folders and notepads here at work.


Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

The holidays are riiiight around the corner. I can't think of any parties on my calendar that this Kate Spade sweater is appropriate for (although I may be thinking it...), but it's sure to be an attention-getter for anyone bold enough to wear it.


Barrel of Fun

Two more items from Crate and Barrel today:

Pomegranate dishtowel.

Tamarind platter.


Seeing Spots

Marimekko! On sale! From Crate and Barrel.


Shower curtain.


P.S. A lot of this stuff is sold out online, but I saw lots at our Crate and Barrel a week or so ago.


On High

Man, if I wore heels, I'd wear these color-block platform pumps from Gianni Bini.

Note: I saw them in person, the orange is much orange-r than in the photo.
