Last week, I needed some cleaning supplies in order to finish the deep clean on my apartment. So I throw on a North Face jacket over my leggings, tunic and flat sneakers and walked one block to the CVS. In 150 yards, I ran into–in this order–the hot guy who works in my neighborhood, a former boss, a former co-worker and a girl who reads the blog and recognized me. Such is the magnetism of an ugly day…it just draws people to you. Coco would be so disappointed.
I do most of my spa treatments at home to save money. Removing the calluses from my heels is the toughest part of a good home pedicure, so I’m hoping this cream from Gehwol really does chase calluses away for good.
Also, you can’t imagine what a rockstar I felt like when I strolled through Nordstrom this weekend and spotted Pssssst! for sale at the beauty counter. Right there, between the $28 dry shampoo and the $37 dry shampoo was the beloved $9 miracle that I have been touting for years. It’s the small things.
I’m in the market for a new, every day ring. This Gorjana cat-eye, gold ring is just interesting enough. I also like this tortoise band and the chain links of this Kelly Wearstler stack ring. But I may take the dainty ring-route and choose this copper dot ring, it appeals to my mining town roots.
Baby Steps in Heels has the cutest post about DvF’s line for Baby Gap. After reading it, I decided to buy some dresses for the cutest little unofficial-niece ever. Don’t worry, I asked Daddy’s permission first. Never spoil someone else’s children without permission.
This Catherine Deane dress is airy, light perfection. I just like to look at it, which is good since I can’t afford it.
Corporette has a great post on retirement planning. Since I have absolutely no idea what the hell she is saying, I made an appointment with a retirement planner. Clearly, if I want to retire before I’m an octogenarian, I should probably grab the reins a bit tighter.
Saks is having a 25-percent-off Friends and Family sale, as is Tory Burch, as is Alice + Olivia. So if you’re looking to invest in a nice piece for spring or summer, now might be the time.
Mizhattan has a post detailing the fashion choices of stylish jet setters. I
obsessed with addicted to the Calypso St. Barth’s scarf she featured. A burlap-colored scarf with gold polka dots? This jones is powerful.
Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring” comes out soon, and while the Sofia-mystique has always alluded me, I am truly excited for this film. If you’re not familiar with The Bling Ring, hit up the TruTV page, before you watch the trailer for the film. Unsurprisingly, one of the people convicted of the Hollywood heists is unhappy with her portrayal (odd how she talks about the crimes committed by “these teens,” as if she wasn’t one of them).
