A-Bit-Unruly Top

Maxie Ford Shorts

Pinned Through Shirt


Nature Collage Blouse (Sadly this blouse is $200. Why must Anthropologie torture me so? Hopefully it will go on sale!)


Squeezebox Top (I think I am going to have to get this one because it will look so good with the weird 80s necklaces I bought at Savers last week!)



Americana Skirt

New York City again

I went to New York City again last week for the Toy Fair and have some new favorites to add to my original list.

Sunrise Market
- Japanese Market - This little store on the second floor is full of cool Japanese food. But you are really here for the candy isle.http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/deborah/japanese%20marshmallows.JPG

The Capital Grille - Steak Restaurant - Our friend Eric took us here. He swears they have the best steak in the city and now we agree! Have a Stoli Doli while you are there but drink it sloooowwwwly.

I just happened upon these amazing rings on OldgOldBoutique.com today while doing research. The best part is that they are all under $52!


Circo de Bango

Cakes and Fashion

I love cake decorating and I love fashion. And apparently so does Isaac Mizrahi! His Fall 2011 collection was influenced by cakes and poodles. And he sent both down the runway. Don't believe me? Here's the evidence:

Books

Here is a list of the books I've read and enjoyed so far in 2011.
sTORI Telling
A must read for any fans of 90210.

If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
This book should be renamed "The business woman's guide to kicking butt."

Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work
A must read for Project Runway fans. It contains lots of interesting background info on the show.

Mini Shopaholic: A Novel
This is one of my favorite Shapaholic books yet. Yes, I've read them all and seen the movie.
Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World's Most Coveted Handbag
This is a fun one if you love fashion accessories and unconventional business models.
