Right now, I am looking outside my window to snow. Instead of April showers bringing May flowers, it’s looking like it is going to be April slush & snow. However, I know Spring is still technically here and warmer weather is just around the corner. I’ve been browsing online daydreaming of walking my dogs in the park enjoying the sunshine. Here are my favorite picks for the next season for Window Shop Wednesday.
1 Fruit-Striped Fun Dress // 2 Slate Muse Bag // 3 The Peel World Necklace // 4 Breezy Bring Green Skirt // 5 The Dotted Line Bracelet // 6 Evelyn Whiskey Tortoise Sunglasses // 7 Sealed with a Twist Sandal // 8 All Things Wondrous Watercolor Dress
I have an addiction.I have come to terms with it. I love everything black & white. I am particularly fond of black & white stripes, but I’ll take blocks of color, checks, anything. While shopping, I always gravitate towards anything that some would say “lack color.” Here are some items on the top of my list for window shop wednesday.
- Black Box Theater Sweater // ModCloth
- Tiled & Dotted Bowl // Anthropologie
- Accordion Midi Dress // Anthropologie
- iPhone case // Madewell
- Victorian Skies Lace Top // Ruche
- Haute on a Limb Jewelry Stand // ModCloth
Case in point…
It’s been a while since I have posted a Window Shop Wednesday. Now that Christmas has passed, I figure it’s time to start looking for myself again and not others (only kidding)! I discovered People Tree though the marvelous world of Pinterest and fell in love. However, they are in the UK so I am sure it is hard to get. What I love about them is that they have a mission to bring Fair Trade fashion to the UK, and they have been doing that since 2001. Sometimes you just find a site and think “this is so me.” People Tree is one of those for me. Check out my favorite pieces.
- Sausage Dog Cream Jumper
- Marie Cream Dot Dress
- Karyn Drape Jacket
- Cordelia Dress
- Peter Jensen Cat Fleece Sweatshirt
- Ribbon Print Bow Top
Here’s a little known fact about me… I selected marketing as my major because as a young girl I fell in love with Gap’s advertising. Keep in mind that these were the days with the West Side Story inspired ads, and the singing group of good looking people singing, “Mellow Yellow.” My dream job was to work for Gap in San Fran. Ever since then, I paid close attention to all of their campaigns. I admired any Leibovitz campaign, especially one that I blogged about years ago.
Today, I did a little happy dance at my desk when I read about the new campaign on Adrants. The message of this campaign is, “true love comes in all shades.” The campaign features different interpretations of family, and love. Created by Minneapolis-based Peterson Mills Hooks, the images made me smile and it also showcases a few of my favorites: the cast of The New Normal, Rufus Wainwright, and Michael J. Fox.
I don’t know what it is, but Gap advertising still makes me turn into a little ad geek, and Gap fan girl.
Sad sad news. A month ago the entire setting (diamond and all) just fell off my wedding ring and I have no idea when it happened or where it is. While I know the ring is just a ring, and my love for my husband is what counts, I miss having it on my finger. At this time in our lives I can’t really afford to go out and get the diamond and setting replaced (through some loop hole with the jewelry store I am really lost for options), so I thought I would browse a little online and look for a short term solution.
I was engaged at 20 and married at 21. It’s safe to say that I hadn’t truly found my style yet. While I love my ring, I think I could go simpler now. The short term solution can serve as a temporary wedding ring, but I am looking for something that I can wear on another finger once my original ring is back in business. Here are some options I am looking at.
