So yesterday I decided to shop for new flats and came across these Vera Wang Lavender Label flats. Well this picture doesn’t do them justice. The crystals are gorgeous and they’re extremely comfortable. I tried them on in black and I’m in love with them. Nothing like jewels on your feet! At a price tag of $295 I’ll be waiting for a sale though. I did end up with a new pair of Tory Burch moccasins though and I can’t wait to wear them with jeans.


Update: Rachel by Rachel Roy

September 15, 2009

I posted this entry back in 2008, I have been following the career of Rachel Roy since she launched her line and as I mentioned in my earlier post, her clothes are beautiful but they are on the higher end. As many of you may have heard she now has a new more affordable line Rachel available at Macy’s. While the pieces are pretty youth oriented it’s received great reviews so far. I think the pieces would be great for mix and match with higher end pieces. I’ve checked and the line isn’t at a Macy’s near me yet but I’ve got my eye out for it. On a personal note, I really like the image she’s crafted for herself. She comes across as a modern gracious, warm and stylish. She’s a mother of two beautiful little girls as well. Nice.

So some people are born knowing how to craft a great personal style and some people have to develop it. In my case, it’s an ongoing process. While I’ve always had pretty sophisticated and classic tastes – perhaps it’s the old soul within – I’m always developing my style into something very personal and unique. Another way of looking at it is my personal theme! One of my favorite designers is Rachel Roy. I love her style and her designs. Rachel also embodies all the tips for beauty; she’s gracious with a great smile, ambitious and creative. While her line is definitely in the higher price range, her style is pretty easy to emulate.

I love the idea of a cupcake truck. I’ve seen it a few other times but never in an urban area. Hum, thinking this might be exactly what DC needs…

The (un)wedding…

mosaic4c6a7a95572acc3a58c2bc874a6b5af55257cbb0Happy Friday! I love the idea of the (un)wedding. Maybe because of late there seems to be so much marketing around weddings and a lot less emphasis on marriages.  This is a nice idea for those who aren’t into all the fanfare of a traditional wedding.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
