Attainable Statement

If you’re looking for a striking piece of jewelry at a reasonable pricepoint, this might be for you.

By a line called Sequin over at my jewelry fave Charm & Chain, these chain links are formed from loads of individual turquoise glass beads. This is the piece that is guaranteed to turn any basic outfit from blah to out-of-control fabulous. At $60, it’s not an out-of-control price, either.


Splendid Gifts

I am a total Splendid devotee. Look no further for someone who adores Splendid. Anyway, I was surfing their site the other day, and they’ve got some fun gifts right now.

For men, I love these striped rugby tees. Their thermal weave is so soft, and unlike any other thermal I’ve felt. You can wash it over and over, and it still looks as good as new.

Yay for leggings! And even better, a 3-pack in a cute matching bag! (Shhh — looking for a deal? Search for Splendid leggings on eBay. I got mine for $20).

Here’s another great set – a 3 pack of their thermal henleys. I’m dying. These are TOO fun, and it’s hard to say which is the best color combination. They’re both so cute!

The soft colors and subtle shimmer of the Lurex rugby kimono cardigan make this so chic.

I also love the Splendid Littles, their kids’ line. The girls’ stuff is adorable, and the boys line is perfect. Not too “trucks-and-dinosaurs” if you know what I mean. I loved dressing Jude in their pajamas when he was a baby, and I would’ve been thrilled to get this 3-piece gift.

Of course, there’s all of their gorgeous cardigans and super-soft modal tees, too — get shopping!

New to Me: Tucker

Have you heard of the line called Tucker? It’s new to me. I caught a glimpse of it over at Piperlime, who is now carrying apparel in addition to their fun handbag-and-shoes shtick. However, I am now sad because when I went back to blog about this amazing blouse they had, it is, I guess, sold out. It does come in other colors, though, although the one pictured here from their header was my favorite. There’s also a gorgeous dress in a similar cut, albeit frumpy-patterned fabric.

But wait! I just googled them, and ShopBop carries them too. I’m dying – that print comes in a dress too! TOO CUTE!

Fun @ the Gap

I saw these fun little pompom slipper booties at the Gap the other day and wanted to put them on right then & there. Plus, it’s all about the pompom. I love it!

Oh, and I reaaaaally wish they would make this Stella McCartney toddler boy’s jacket in my size. It’s just too fabulous. I’m already fantasizing about what I would wear with it.

Iomoi Custom-Stripe Tote

Whilst perusing one of several magazines in the airplane yesterday, this bag from Iomoi caught my eye. Let me tell you first, I am a tote fiend. I have tons of them. I can never fall in love with an actual purse or handbag, seemingly, but I’m head over heels for a tote.

I’ve been a longtime Iomoi supporter – as a graphic designer, I can only wish I had thought of everything they do first. Because they do it, quite arguably, best. Their paperweights are divine, their lucite trays oh-so-chic, and now they’ve added these custom stripe canvas totes into the mix. And at $78, this is actually one of their more reasonable offerings, considering what it is.

Now the hard part is picking which stripe. And let me tell you, this is hard, because each one is gorgeous.

This one might be my favorite.

Or, um, maybe this one.

I really love the red with the two shades of blue. It’s hard to get me away from that one. But then again….

I love me some pink and orange.

Get it here at Iomoi–

Nobody does whimsy like Kate Spade

I’m a longtime devotee of Kate Spade. I remember the first time I ever saw one of her simple, understated nylon handbags. I was in love. And as she’s only continued to improve and expand her empire, I’ve continued to love every last bit of it. She’s chic, but whimsical at the same time, and I adore the styling of her advertising. The Christmas theme to her site this year is no exception.

The graphic designer & typography-lover in me adores these numbered enamel bangles. Gorgeous!

When have traditional, el cheapo bows ever been chic? Not ’til now! These satin flats are too fun — not the most practical, but satin never is. 🙂

If I’m ever back in New York City in mitten weather, I simply MUST have these. So clever.

And finally, the piece de resistance — a flattering, happy green cocktail dress. I have no plans to be in a cocktail dress this holiday season, but if I were and the sky were the limit, I would want it to be this one…

Saw these over at I Am A Greedy Girl, and had to share. I’m curious how they fit – at $50, they’re cute, and come in a variety of colors. The hardest part is picking which one!
