1. Deborah Lippman Polishes in Flashdance, Modern Love and Dark Fantasy ($16) // 2. Phillip Lim Satin-Twill Peplum Top ($550) // 3. Zara Studded Ankle Strap Sandal ($90) and Jeffrey Campbell Martini Spike Loafers ($157) // 4. Jimmy Choo Metallic iPad Sleeve ($495) and Lodis Snake Embossed iPad Case ($98) // 5. Rag and Bone Silver Tuxedo ($270) // 6. Kate Spade Elephant Bank ($50) and Giraffe Figurine ($55)

Polyvore Set Here.

One. I’m not sure when I became so obsessed with nail polish, but my medicine cabinet is beginning to look like a salon display case.  And if companies like Deborah Lippman keep making such amazing colors, it’s only going to get worse.  Out of the three, I love the middle one, a subtle mauve, the best.  If you like the shade but the price is too high, Sally Hansen has a similar shade for under-$5.

Two. I loved this top last year, and I love it even more this season.  I tried on last year’s version at the Gilt City Warehouse Sale, and it was sublime…and sadly, too big.  Luckily, I can comfort myself with this Madewell blouse while I wait for the Lim top to go on sale.  Fingers crossed.

Three.  Studded shoes add a little something extra to even the most basic outfit.  The Zara pair are the perfect choice to wear with cocktail or going out attire.  And the Martini studded flats will jazz up any casual outfit.  Want them in black?  They have those too.

Four. I love my Dodo Case ($29), but I’m looking for a more stylish case.  I like the idea of a gold case, but not at the price of Jimmy Choo.  (Maybe this Banana Republic would be better?)  This teal Lodis case is also gorgeous, but not quite as versatile.  

Five.  This blush and black jacket is ah-may-zing.  And at 50-percent-off, even better.  Wear it with black separates, denim or wear it over a black sequined cocktail dress.  So gorgeous.

Six.  I’ve been doing some redecorating around my apartment, and I’d like to add some decorative items to my bookshelves.  This cute elephant bank and whimsical giraffe would look great in my apartment.

    I've been super obsessed with nail polish lately too! It was getting a bit out of control, bottles everywhere, until I saw an idea on pinterest (of course). I went to Michaels and bought a big glass hurricane jar- $25, and I had a 50% off coupon! So, now they sit in the jar, looking all colorful and pretty, on my dresser. It's perfect!

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.
