I’m interrupting your daily cup of coffee (or, if you’re like me, your third daily cup of coffee), to offer up this important announcement …
The Vince Camuto Verona pump (the perfect velvet-bow-topped pump spotted on Pinterest) is online and available in three drool-worthy colors: eggplant, black, and ruby. This now concludes our daily shopaholics air-time.

I am obsessed with the leather sleeves trend this Fall. I see them, I want them. I don’t discriminate: short, long, attached to a trench, a soft t-shirt, a crisp jacket. I have a serious case of the “gimme-gimme”‘s.
Are you a fan of the color-blocked leather look?
Plus, a few of my favorite leather-sleeved jackets and tops …

I am such a huge fan of maxi dresses. They’re forgiving in so many ways, and perfect to beat the heat in these Summer months. Forgot to shave? No problem – throw on a maxi dress. Ate one too many french fries at the barbeque? Hello, maxi dress. Forgiving! Winning!
And these styles have my “love, want, need” list growing at rapid speed. Some are casual, some are sexy, some striped, some loose, some cinched at the waist, all I love. Do you have a favorite? Are you a fan of the maxi dress?

Now that Summer is officially here, I thought I’d roll out a mini list of the things I can’t stop clicking on, over and over and over again. And with my Birthday still months away, and the Holidays many months after that, I thought that by documenting my lusts, they might magically appear at my door if I talk about them … endlessly. (It hasn’t worked yet.)
And yes, I wear boots straight through Summer. Some habits a girl just can’t break.

With Mother’s Day fast-approaching, I put together a little gift guide of luxe finds and must-haves for moms. Moms get plenty of “practical” gifts, and though I myself am a big fan of a practical piece (food processor, anyone?), on mother’s day, you should splurge for your mom and get her something she wouldn’t normally buy herself! From a perfect shift dress, to another tote bag she probably doesn’t need but really wants, to the best Tory Burch sandals ever, to the ever-coveted Cartier Love bangle, spoil your mama.

Next Sunday, the hubby and I will board a plane for Israel (SO excited.) For weeks now (months even) I’ve carefully planned what I would bring, what I would need, the outfits I’d wear, and so on. Trouble is, I haven’t actually organized the things to bring, shopped for the items I want, laid out the picture-perfect outfits; instead, we’re a little over a week away from our 10-day jaunt and I have nada.
Perhaps most importantly, I’m nervous about the right-sized carryall. I always bring a carry-on that tight-rope-walks the line of being “too big for the overhead compartment” and I usually have to make sad eyes at the flight attendants to allow me to “carry on” my body bag. But I can’t stand a small carry-on. Truth be told, I don’t even carry all that much on, it’s all of the shopping and bringing-back that requires the extra baggage room. #necessary
I’ve been in love with the Kate Spade Westward Runaway Duffle* for months now, but it is woefully out of my price range and sold out. I spotted the Deux Lux sequin-dipped duffel a few months back as well, and I’m admittedly pretty smitten!
1. Kate Spade Westward Runaway Duffle; marked down from $1,295 to $647
3. Deux Lux Ipanema Canvas Large Sequin Duffle; $78 (Ipanema tote here)
I actually have this crazy idea that I could DIY a sparkly duffle with a bit of painter’s tape, lots of glue, a paint brush, and a whole lot of glitter. Too risky?

*The word “duffle” is driving me crazy … is it “duffle” or “duffel”? I googled and got both! Even the brands seem to be having a spelling identity crisis. Deux Lux on varying websites is sometimes “duffel” and sometimes “duffle.” #EnglishMajorProblems
