april showers... bring on the FLOWERS


I NEED that center trench coat from Burberry's new Spring line, April Showers. Need like as in yesterday!

Hey Babe - aka The Man? You there, You here me, Babe???? There's a few things I need, so ring me up, I'll give you the deets! (yes, I did say 'deets' all into making up my own words lately... for instance - Jelly - I am soo jelly you are leaving for Paris tonight! ok, done now.)

way way way ahead

Way, way, way, way, way^10 (that's way to th 10th degree for all my non-math ladies) in the future I want this! Next winter, which I will not accept for next 17.35 months, I plan to wear something just like this. I want to look like this. I am getting pieces so I can look like this.

I don't know why, but I LOOOVE this look.


Am I alone out here....wouldn't this be a hot date night look...with a cute dress under that coat.

Wait why am I thinking about winter....I should be pondering summer outfits/lusts. Pretty hard when we haven't seen above 50 yet! Le sigh, one day we will! (I am GTL'ing it hard core - not so hard on the L, there is only so much of it around and come'on it gets old real quick! But had to start tanning, I was glowing and transparent - couldn't take it anymore, plus with my Bridal shower looming need to sport a bit of color on exposed legs!).

sometimes you just know....

When I read this post the other day I squealed. Squealed with joy! Because 1 - I love these girls...somehow weirdly I feel like I know them, know them via the blog world, plus one lives in SD, my home town! So there is a connection if not a real one, it is one to me. And 2- I too am wearing a short wedding dress, and am totally excited about it!!!

I debated for a while whether it was the right decision, but knew once I put it on, for our destination and vibe, it was perfect! I bought it off the rack, no changes necessary. And just as in the Sex in the City movie where Carrie's her dress up'd the SHOES totally make the 'look' rocking and perfect for me!

What are your thoughts???? Do you 'dig' the short dress idea? Or is long the only way to go?

I am really in love with all of these.....





Don't they all look sooo beautiful?! I sure think so!

a welcome addition!

What a weekend the Man and I had! It was was awesome! Why am I blogging about it today... well our weekend ended late Monday and this is my first real chance.

Late Friday my best Friend, Mrs. Babies went into the hospital to have....ANOTHER BABY! Thus commencing our weekend of honorary Mommy and Daddy duties, as Uncle B and Auntie T! We had soo much fun!

Mrs. Babies had a beautiful little girl, Emery Mae!!! Miss Emery was born at 4:33am on 4/10/2010. She is absolutely stunning and already the center of soo many people's universe!

Here are a few pictures of the weekend and the beautiful Miss Emery Mae and family!

Fun stories to be shared later! ;)

Help, I need somebody!

'Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh!'

(You got that Beatles reference right?!?! oh please tell me you did!)

Ok. So I need help! No not the go to a treatment center. Or the check yourself into a hospital kind. The kind I need is shopping help. Crazy I know right. But I have yet to determine the perfect Bridal shower outfit.

I can't find the perfect dress. Which means I don't know what the perfect shoes are! AHHHHH!

My bridal shower happens to be ON my birthday (fun right?!) so it needs to be extra cute and special!

The Bridal shower is not your typical make dresses out of TP or sit around & answer silly questions about the couple (again, there is nothing wrong with that, just not me) we are doing it 'Girls Night on the Town' style! I am sooo jazzed. My mom is being a gracious host and party planner. And, I have no clue where we are going or what we are doing, I just know I got to be CUTE! And maybe a tiny sexy!

So. You see I have a dilemma, you saw it right?! Right back there. I can't figure out what to wear! Since I don't know the exact details I am unsure.

I have these shoes, I have yet to wear and am DYING TOO! This might be the perfect occasion! (I have a dress that I could wear with it, but I don't think it is the one). Or maybe I need to wear skinny back pants and a rocking top?!?! 

Think THESE shoes are a M.U.S.T.!

Maybe.. {Via}

Vivienne Westwood. With back skinny pants and JC Tick Wedges? {Via}

Alexander Wang. Kinda love how simple it is, those shoes would stand out! {Via}

so fun! And the shoes would make it funky! {Via & Via}

Oh I don't know girls.....PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! OH HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am BARE.... are YOU?!

I am in full support of  'TOMS Shoes'. What they do, what they stand for, and how amazing they are! Do you have any TOMS'???

Sadly I don't own any (well technically I do! they are mine whenever the postal service decides to deliver them). Any who. Today I will proudly be supporting their cause 'One Day Without Shoes'. Not sure exactly what the office big-wigs at Corporate America (ie the j-o-b) will think....but you can be sure that I will be dangling bare feet under my desk and all the minutes spent outside of the office. Are YOU?!?! HUH???

TOMS warms me in a real cuddly, soul satisfying and totally yummy kinda way. I don't know how to explain it. The mission of their company, to me, is amazing and one that should be adopted by so many more! They donate a pair of shoes to children in need. One for one. For every pair you or I purchase they deliver one pair to a child in Argentina. They are committed to deliver 100,00 to the people of Haiti in support of Clinton's Global Initiative.

They are pretty much AWESOME in every way, in my book! Hey that one counts! :)

I can't wait to start rocking mine!!! You know I will be rocking them hard this summer...look out white jeans and shorts! HA!

Do you guys have any? What is your favorite color? Style?

Oh and TOMS (if you are out there!) please pick me to go on a SHOE DROP!!! Oh please oh please! It would be the most amazing trip of my life, I have got  to figure out a way to go do this with them, even if they don't pick me, I have got to get on one of their trips....devise scheme begin!

Oh! I have a love hate relationship with the collaborations with designers and Target. Some are completely amazing and other just blah.

Well well well....Lets see Zac Posen is just about to drop ....hop over and check it out! ! But even better for me (Just call me shoeaholic!) coming on 4/18. CYNTHIA. VINCENT.

Yes! You read that right! OMG The previews look amazing! You can bet I have my calendar marked, and will by buying quite a few of these shoes!


Hello, yellow wedges....oh and the brown (maybe the back, they are so different than my other black pair!) And the flats, and probably some new summer sandals!!!

bc a girl can never have enough....

There is no finite amount of pretty dresses a women should have. NONE! She should have plenty. Tons. Many.

I have mentioned before that orange is my color. I haven't yet determined what draws me to it, or really how great it works on me. But when I saw this dress I died and went to my pretty orange heaven!

I am in love. I know the perfect shoes. Clutch.

Do you have a wedding to go to this summer? Bridal shower? Rehearsal Dinner? Girls night out? Oh wait I do!

I need! Oh I even know where I could wear it! :)

NEED THIS NOW!!!!!!!!! Thoughts?

wedding essentials

I am sooooo pleased to introduce to you my friends, some new little friends of mine. These friends are hawt, stylish to boot and they are my wedding shoes (exciting, earth shattering - I know right?!)!

Well to me it is. So there! I am a lover of shoes and have been dreaming of what I would wear down the aisle. I knew from the beginning I wanted some that I could wear over and over, not just a 'one time shoe'. I wanted a classic, timeless shoe that I will wear forever. And ever. And ever.

So with out further they are!
