The Classy Way

Last weekend, the crew ventured out on the town. Went to a fabulous new bar, Meat, and popped by a launch party for a new speakeasy that is opening soon. They were not serving wine however, so I opted for a nice cold PBR. Not really being a beer drinker...I thought a straw would be a festive way to go about enjoying. Classy I know.

Well, I feel as if I have only glimpsed the winter weather thus far this season but, I am already thinking ahead to warmer days. These wedges are so dreamy and make me fantasise about hot summer days and cut off Levi's. Please come sooner rather than later.

Pretty in Pink and Everything Else

image via

I fell in love with this blogger/model last Fall during fashion week when she asked to photograph my outfit outside of the Marchesa show. I was so stunned by how beautiful she was and continue to be. One of my favorite bloggers of all time. She has such an effortless style and everthing she puts on looks amaze. Love the chic ombre long bob. So wish I could pull it off. Sadly feel I can't and therefore will leave it to Hanneli to out stage us all.

They Won't Stop

So, my wedding photographer has now sent me even more photos of our wedding! Ahhhh! So overwhelming. Currently in the long process of trying to make my way through all of them and choose the ones I really want! So hard! Above are some of the new ones that she sent over that make me so happy! Can we do it again? Pretty please?

The Answer To All My Problems

(Alexander Wang)

I am having a love affair this winter season with ponchos. Trying to figure out how to wear them without looking like an extra in a western movie...proving a bit more difficult then anticipated. This Alexander Wang silk and knit poncho is clearly the answer to my predicament. Elegant and sexy, I am totally in love with the idea of wearing this with a fabulous evening mini dress and to die for barely there silver heels. Basically how the piece was styled for the runway. Now if I can only figure out how to finance.....will remember to buy a lottery ticket today after work :)

Just Blowouts

Several weeks ago Jac and I traveled to NYC for Coterie and showroom appointments. Of course as per usual we found plenty of time to have fun and pamper ourselves. I had read several pieces of press about this new phenom DryBar and discovered that the one in NYC had opened the day before we arrived! Perfect timing. I immediately got on the phone and made Jac and me appointments before we went out Saturday night for Brandon's Bday. It is hair mecca. For $35 you get a yummy cocktail, wash and condition, and a blowout! Everything is based around cocktail time, including the names of the hair styles to choose from. For example, I chose the Mai Tai (Beach waves) or one could go with the Cosmo (sophisticated curls). Needless to say I would be a member if I had a location within 60 miles of my house. Memberships are of course categorized as "Barfly" and "Regular". I mean really? Could this place be more perfect for me? If you are in LA or NYC anytime soon, one really must experience such bliss!

Hotel Judi's

A couple of weekends ago I decided to take a mini vacay at one of my fav places on earth, Hotel Judi's. My mother-in-law is the most fab host and I always have the most fun with her! Besides the Sweet Magnolia chicken salad and red velvet cheesecake...oh and who could forget the never ending flow of bubbles! The company is even better! Jac and Bianca Bear decided to stop over for the night on their way home from visiting Brandon and the always crazy fun Sarah joined in our fun as well! Tried a great new restaurant and ate way too much food! As usual...hard to leave and counting down the days till I return to this heaven on earth.
