J. Crew Goodies

J. Crew is always the perfect place to buy great basics and seasonal staples.  I have to admit that I went 3 times this week because they just got in all their cute new Summer stuff!  I thought that my Hawai trip this Friday was the perfect reason to splurge a little bit...Here is what I ended up getting over the course of my visits:



Here is a picture of the "Marabella" dress/coverup which I wore to my niece's and nephew's 3rd birthday party today.  

Stalking "Speidi's" Wedding

On Saturday I was in the Pasadena area and decided to drive by Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding on Lake Avenue at the Westminster Presbyterian Church.  Camera crew and photographers were everywhere because they were filming the wedding for The Hills... Besides the bride and groom, I saw Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner, Brody's GF Nicole Jayde, Frankie Delgado, Kristin Cavallari, Justin Bobby, Brent Bolthouse, Stephanie Pratt, Holly Montag, Perez Hilton, and Heidi's Mom & Stepdad.

Below is an actual paparazzi pic of Heidi's Monique Lhuiller dress which cost a reported $19,000.  She accessorized with $1 million in diamonds loaned from Neil Lane.  Her bridesmaids, Holly Montag and Stephanie Pratt, wore long yellow BCBG dresses.  Overall, everyone I saw was dressed very nicely and looked great!

Goyard Again!

Picked up a white Goyard tote on Saturday at Barneys in Beverly Hills! I'm excited to put this to good use this Summer when I go to the beach and on quick weekend get-a-ways.  I love the fact that this bag is waterproof and apparently very easy to clean which is great since white bags are usually hard to take care of.

Obviously Boots wanted a picture too :)

Happy (Belated) Easter!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! I spent the day at my sister's house with my Mom, Dad, brother-in-laws, sisters, 6 nieces and 2 nephews!

I'm lucky that the Easter Bunny still leaves me a basket (thanks mom!)... I got some candy, Tory Burch Flip Flops in Watermelon, some Hanky Pankys, Evian Facial Water, Mac Lip Conditioner SPF 15, Essie nail polishes, a Bliss Travel Set, and some $ hidden inside yellow and pink plastic eggs.

It was also my kitty Boots' first birthday! Happy Birthday Boots!


ShopBop.com discount code "taxbreak09" works now until Thursday night.

I ended up getting this red plaid Rag & Bone Boyfriend Shirt that I had tried on at Bergdorf's when I was in NYC and then the floral Joie "Karla" Dress (that matches my top from an earlier post....I love this print!).

Happy Monday, enjoy!

Boots' Favorite Blanket

Look who loves my new "Don't Freak It's Faux" blanket...Boots snuggled right up to it as soon as I put it on my bed Sunday night.

The blanket is made of faux fur but has such a luxurious and soft feel.  It is beyond cozy, trust me!  The great thing about this brand is that for every 5 blankets sold they give one for free to a hospitalized child.

I got the blanket in Snow Leopard/Cream (retails for $218 for the 60"x 54" version) and its perfect for cuddling with on the couch.  Check out all of the other great color combos on the official site!

Got Goyard...

I was in NYC this past weekend visiting the bf and I went about my usual shopping routine (Bloomingdales, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Saks and Intermix)... While I was in Bergdorf I decided to take the plunge and get something in the limited pink from Goyard! I went with the makeup bag (fits perfectly in a purse!) because I thought the color looked a little overwhelming in the tote versions and I don't have much that would match. So excited to put this to good use!
