Winter wish list

September 26, 2011 Leave a comment

I stopped by Nordstrom today with my mom. She had to pay her bill, and I really wasn’t looking for anything in particular to buy. But of course, it’s next to impossible to walk through that store and not find something I want; today I found three.
I know fall just got here, but here are some things that are already on my winter wish list:

And…. I am pretty sure this will be on sale tomorrow morning on Hautelook… I’ve wanted this since the first day I saw it a few months ago. Of course, now that it’s on sale, I am totally broke. As usual.
Thanks for the shitty tips at work tonight, people. You’re really not helping me reach any of these very important goals of mine.

What keeps me going. And going, and going…

I’m exhausted. I worked all weekend and will be back at it before I know it. Not much of an exciting post today, but I hadn’t posted in a few days and I felt bad for neglecting my blog. I’m dedicating this post to the things that will get me through the week:

my drug of choice.

red red wine, you make me feel so fine.

"L'eggo my eggo!" Typical breakfast on the go.

Fall TV returns this week. "Two and a Half Men," "Modern Family," "Grey's Anatomy"... most of my favorites are back (I'm still mourning the cancellation of "Brothers & Sisters" and "The Chicago Code," but I'll live). I'm looking forward to a new season of laughter & drama!

I've still got this little munchkin keeping me company at home for the next three days 🙂

Knowing that I have these shoes waiting for me at home also will somehow make my days a little bit easier to get through 🙂 They retailed for $245, and I found them in black over the weekend at the Rack for only $35. Yep, that's 85% off. I was left with no choice... it's simply impossible for me to pass on such an incredible LAMB sale.

Have a great week, everyone!

Hate to break it to you, Monday, but it's true!

L.A.M.B. Spring 2012

September 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Well folks, here they are…. some of my favorite looks from today’s L.A.M.B. show in NYC. I know you’ve all been anxiously awaiting to see what Gwen came up with for her spring 2012 collection…. or maybe that was just me? Yeah, that sounds more like it. Indulge me and enjoy my review of the show 🙂
Although Gwen was not there, the collection did not disappoint. WWD tweeted that it was “a logistical nightmare trying to get into the L.A.M.B. presentation. Lots of lines forming every which way,” and this is how USA Today Style described the incredible atmosphere: “L.A.M.B. presentation is like going to the club: long line, thumping music, hot girls, getting stepped on, “bouncers” and crazy dark.” One day, I will be there to experience this first-hand, just you wait and see….
Reviews have been fantastic so far and I can totally see why:

love that the show was dedicated to NYC today.

I want this black and white sweater so.freaking.bad.
and the yellow & white bucket bag!

and I love this tank….

and pretty much this entire outfit.

bright blue shoes? yes, please.

adorable dress!

there are those shoes again!

cute skirt.

cute outfit.

digging the chevron dress

OK, can we please just talk about those cerulean blue buckled platforms? No idea where I would wear them, but I’ve got about 8 months to figure it out. I also want those cute strappy black wedges. Gimme gimme.
As far as the clothes go, I am totally in love with all the black & white graphic patterns mixed with the bursts of bright colors. Gwen calls her inspiration for these two themes the “rat pack group” and “high voltage.” Oh yeah, and “Maharaja – an Indian inspiration – loosely weaves in and out.”
I think the models looked absolutely  gorgeous with their smokey eyes and high buns with the dark extensions woven throughout; they’ve been described as “Nubian warriors.” Love it and I love the entire collection. Guess this means I gotta hit the treadmill and start savin’ the dollars! I’m not sure I am going to be able to wait until this stuff hits the Rack!!

Which outfits are your favorites??

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicked off on Friday and tomorrow, the ever-fabulous L.A.M.B. runway show is taking place tomorrow at 2:30 pm. From the bits of info that’s been leaked, the look for Spring 2012 looks and sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us! I would kill to go to the show (maybe someday!), although rumor has it that Gwen will actually not even be in attendance herself… something about staying in LA to work on a new No Doubt album or something… 😉

This is what we know about the show so far:

Can’t wait to see pics from the runway!!! Happy Fashion Weekend, everyone!
