Happy 2013 to everyone!  I hope everyone had a wonderful year end.  I have missed you all.  I hope you all will forgive me for being the most delinquent poster of all time, but life has just gotten in the way over the last couple of months, however, I’m very happy to be back. Recently we all traveled to Carol’s school in Wales, and I wanted to share some photos of that amazing trip for my first post back.  First of all, let me say just how wonderful the UK and it’s people are.  I have never loved visiting a …


I’m so happy everyone enjoyed my last Thrift Store Essentials post.  I immediately started thinking it needed a part two and maybe part three right after I posted.  There are so many pieces at the thrift store that I see time and time again that could be a classic in most anyone’s closet.  Here are a few I spotted in one week: Jane is wearing a beautiful Burberry trench. Every time I stop at Genesis thrift store in Dallas, they will have at least one Burberry trench–sometime three or four to choose from.  This one is perfect, but Jane and …


Quick post before I begin the rest of an incredibly busy week.  I’m almost done shooting my thrifting post, so promise to have that up soon.  These were pictures snapped right before the Kelly Wearstler/Reward Style event last week. Wearing Comme des Garcons jacket that is one of my favorite pieces in the world.  Skirt by Raquel Allegra, available at V.O.D. boutique in Dallas, and Giuseppe Zanotti buckle shoes.


Oct. 17th was the most clever name I could come up with for this post because the photos really have no rhyme nor reason.   They were taken when Jane and I were out running errands, and I kind of liked this outfit, so thought I would share. Carol is home for fall break, so I am ecstatic to see her! Carrying one of my favorite old bags–it’s by Golden Bleu.  Wonder if they are still around?  I always liked that company. Trying on a sweater at H&M with my vintage fur collar.  Hope to get my second Thrift Store …


  Kim and Shelly sharing a little peanut butter from a spoon.  They’re always up for taking silly dog pictures. Really Kim? Jane’s new dog, Melanie.  Such a precious girl. Jane and I didn’t even realize how much Kim and Melanie looked alike until we saw a photo of them side by side–that’s just how captivated we are with Mel’s sweet personality.  We celebrated her adoption with a birthday cake. I was happy that my Thrift Store Essentials post was such a hit–I’m busy working on Thrift Store Essentials Part Two.  Off to work!  Everyone have a great day.   …


I wanted to share with you my new favorite consignment store in Dallas.  Give and Take.  Located on Riverfront in the Dallas Design District, Give and Take consigns high end classics from the 50’s to the 80’s along with funky accent tables, art, lamps and more.  Owner, Jean Nelson takes great care in arranging small vignettes throughout the shop to showcase her great collection–but don’t skip the back room where you’ll find more treasures waiting to hit the floor. Check out the Vladimir Kagan sofa above covered in a slinky faux python. This pair of chrome lamps retails for $700. …


Finally we have a little cool weather.  With the last remnants of summer comes the urge to update your wardrobe for fall.  This can always be a little daunting.  You can envision yourself wandering around the mall for hours on end, not to mention that fall clothes cost at least four times more than spring/summer clothes.  One nice piece can blow your entire clothing budget. I spent ten days hitting two different thrift stores in Dallas close to my home, and one crazy estate sale.  I came up with five easy to find pieces that will completely update your fall …


A big thanks to Valentino for sending me a pair of their beautiful red rock studs shoes.  I am a huge fan of Valentino shoes, and honored to have a pair of these limited edition beauties.  I am helping Valentino kick off the new Valentino Shoe Room.  You can see more of it here. Thank you Valentino!!!  


Hi Everyone!  Sorry for my absence of late.  Jane’s blog had a few projects that kept us quite busy, so I’ve been more of a behind the scenes blogger the last couple of weeks, so it’s nice to finally get a post out and at least say hello. I’m going to try out a few new recipes this week-so I will see you all soon!


Photos snapped by Jane on the most insanely hot day of the year with my iPhone–you can tell by the look on my face and lack of proper shoes. Sunglasses were a gift from Toms, and my absolute favorite.  Zara jacket, Rich and Skinny jeans. Putting the Alexander Wang sandals SS/13 on my wish list for sure!  I loved the entire collection.
