Forever Young

Another rainy night in the garden state... I thought it was April showers bring May flowers? Well tomorrow is the start of April, so lets hope March saw enough rain to hold us over. Days like this make me want to stay home with my fuzzy slippers and a robe and watch daytime TV all day. ...With a few naps in between. Unfortunately I can't do that. I need to pay the bills and feed my addictions, so work it is... in a comfortable yet stylish outfit, naturally.

Top: tailored myself!
Jeans: William Rast
Bag: Juicy Couture
Accessories: Chanel, F21, Gift from my Sister
Shoes: Fendi

The two finger name ring was a gift from my sister, and one of my favorite pieces of jewelry because of it. I tried to get her on this post... but no dice. Maybe next time! We went on a date together to see Remember Me. Has anyone seen it? If you haven't you NEEEEEED to. LOVELOVEd it.

I went for a glass of wine with my girlfriend after my photo session (with a BLAZER of course it was still windy and chilly! not pictured sadly!)... and stood a cool 6'0" in my Marni's. LoveLove them!

Letters On My Neck (In Old English)

The weather today is back to being cold, and feeling more Fall than Spring. I had to break out my Fall coat and wear a long sleeve... sigh.

Days like today call for a nice piece of jewelry to accessorize a blah outfit (and a blah mood!!)

This silver necklace was a gift from my fiance a few years ago, designed by Christie Martin. If you aren't familiar with her jewelry, you can browse her pieces here. I'm a huge fan of the Old English style line she has out. I love how the pieces are edgy and more interesting than just your regular initial necklace.

Christie Martin designs are a favorite among celebrities, (Such as Carmen Electra in her Old English gold necklaces!) and her styles adorned Christina Aguilera for a past Maxim spread. I love the cross necklace and cuff!

The next piece I neeeeeed to have from her line is The Old English Signet Ring. I'm in love with it! (I don't think it helps much that the display for the ring is the exact one I want... right down to the letter!!) The stars on the side of the ring are just a little detail that makes her jewelry so unique and fun!

Monday Treat

This weekend was a great one for me. I spent most of my weekend at home enjoying the nice weather! Since it was 70, I was able to put the top down in my car and took Jordan for his first convertible ride. He sat in my lap the whole time and needless to say he loved it.

Isn't he the cutest little ham... sticks his little face right in the camera.

So, I was on the shoe hunt this weekend (as always) and I got a REDICULOUS steal!! Take a look at my new addition...

The heels are by Marni. I can't tell you how long I have been searching for the right pair of Marni's in this style... and these are them! The price was even better. They haven't arrived yet (online shopping at its best) but I can't wait until they do. Just another pair to add to my 2010 Spring collection that will keep these company.

I Love That Lavender Blonde

Since it was yet again another gorgeous day, and the rain puddles had dried up, I felt it was time for the Maybach of all footwear to come out and play.

If you are ever lucky enough to own a pair of Christian Louboutin stilettos, it will be hard to go back to normal shoes again. TRUST ME. No other shoe can compare. Just a flash of the red bottoms, and a classic (white tank and jeans) becomes a staple outfit. Just a few accessories and you're ready to go with a simple yet lust-worthy look.

Scarf: Alexander McQueen
Jeans: William Rast
Tank: H&M
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Today I wanted my makeup look to be all about the eyes. So I lined them with a soft black kohl pencil, an extra coat of mascara, skipped the lip-gloss and went for a nude, matte lip. Here's the end result.

What do you think?

Heres a look at my accessories today...

Dog Tag Necklace: Tiffany & Co
Two Finger Floating Crystal Ring: SkinnyStyle

I got the ring around Christmas when I opened up InStyle and saw a certain someone wearing it. I never saw anything as unique as this ring - knew I had to have it. The crystals are on the larger side, which make it catch the light and really glitter. LOVELOVE it!

The best part of my day? My Fiance is out of the country until next week ... and today he sent a dozen long stem red roses... just because.

A Taste of Spring

Today was the most beautiful day New Jersey has seen in months. In the 60s and sunny; I couldn't wait to get out of work and take my dog, Jordan, for a walk.

In my town, tucked away in the hills, there is an old castle that was built in the 1940s. Modeled after 15th century French chateau, it is a beautiful piece of history, and has been featured in Weird New Jersey due to its majestic but erie look. There is a nice park by it that Jordan loves, so I figured I'd take my chances with whatever may be haunting it. (My guess would be mice!)

[In this picture you can catch a glimpse of the belt from Zara I got over the weekend. I threw it on to jazz up my casual cardigan and leggings!]

Never to be without an accessory I grabbed my new piece before running out the door. This is my new two finger flower ring! I have quite a few of the double-finger style rings these days, but this is the newest, and I love it! Does it remind you of anything?

Double flower ring from Urban Outfitters.
