Olivia Palermo from The City has amazing home (and personal) style. I was absolutely beyond jealous when I saw the vintage Hermes tray that she has on her coffee table in her Manhattan apartment. I seriously HAVE to have one once I get a place of my own! The pop of orange definitely is a great contrast to the soft, neutral shades that decorate her living room. So chic...
I LOVE going to the Beach (as do most people for good reasons) and the scent of coconut always reminds me of sunscreen and a sunny, Summer day. I recently bought my friend a bday present from Kiehl's and had to go back and get the Coconut Body Lotion ($19.50) and the Lip Balm #1 in Coconut ($8.50) for myself.
Bobbi Brown's "Beach" line also does a great job of caputuring the scent of all things relating to Summer.
It's true, I will be joining the Circus aka going to see Britney Spear's Concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on April 16th! As her #1 fan I am beyond excited, I seriously have been dreaming about it since she first announced that she would be touring! I also hear that Madonna might be a special guest at either the April 16th or 17th shows....Hope its true cause I was at Madonna's "Sticky & Sweet" Concert when Britney and Justin were the surprise guests and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

I have really been wanting a Goyard "St Louis" tote bag for a while now but couldn't seem to decide between the large size and the small size. I was pretty set on getting a white one until I saw this pink beauty at Barney's on Saturday (3/21)!
The light bubble gum pink color is limited edition and was relaunched last week after being released in 2008 and selling out at lightning speed. Although it isn't very practical, I kind of want to get the small version of the pink to use in the summer and then a large white one later on..... If not a tote then definitely an accessory in this amazing color cause it is so me! I'll keep you posted :)
Very, very pretty hair and makeup and the dress color is "bananas!" (borrowed from Rachel Zoe)... Not sure about the shoes and the overall fit of the dress but Blake Lively aka Serena Van Der Woodsen looks b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!
My favorite decorating/bedding store, Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic, filed for bankruptcy last week...I was seriously depressed and panicked because I have had Shabby Chic bedding in my bedroom since I was 12 years old. I love the floral and feminine pattern of all the bedding and the neutral, classic furniture. I hope that once the economy picks up she'll be able to reopen her fabulous company because so many people are going to miss it!
Finally, Reese is back! She had killer fashion sense right after her split with hubby Ryan Phillippe but she has kind of been lacking in the style department for the past few months (her Oscar look was a definite miss). However, Reese looks amazing in Rodarte at the Monster vs. Aliens premiere... Very edgy, modern and a perfect fit!
Finally picked up my David Yurman ring that I got for Christmas! I ended up getting the Albion 11mm in Champagne which features both gold and silver. I LOVE this color in real life because it is very neutral but still very unique (most department stores don't even carry it!). It was very hard to get good pictures of the color but here are some pics just to get and idea...
So excited! Besides my monthly NYC trips to see the BF, I just booked a ticket to Oahu, Hawaii for May 1-4th! I am going with a bunch of my girl friends and cannot wait to be laying out with some sort of tropical drink in hand.
My goal till then is to keep up with the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred...so far I've been good and done 5 out of the last 6 days. I really like the workout because its only about 30 minutes and you work your way through the 3 levels. I am still on level 1 but think I am going to move up to level 2 next week...Keep you all posted!
Freida Pinto looked stunning at a Chanel event this past week. The simple palette of black and off white are anything but plain with the dramatic black necklace detail and the intricate structure of her dress. Can't wait to see her take over the big screen after her wonderful performance in the Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire.
Vanessa Hudgens went for a flower power look in her Rebecca Taylor jumper ($345) at the Monday night premiere of Watchman in LA. I love how she played up the colors in her floral print ensemble with lavender heels. The whole look is very current but also references the sixties/seventies...
One piece jumpers, rompers, jumpsuits -whatever you want to call them- have been popping up in many designers' Spring collections. Pair with gladiator sandals and a chunky necklace or heels and delicate bangles to go from day to night. From Bottom left: Alexander Wang($473); Adam by Adam Lippes ($345); Pencey ($466)
