So, lately I’m loving the look of delicate rings. Whether worn by themselves, or in a stack, I love the edge it adds to any outfit. It’s also a great way to glam up that fresh mani you just got.
My inspiration for this latest craving of mine started when I saw top trend-setting bloggers like Blair from Atlantic-Pacific (see example here) and Aimee from Song of Style (example in this post) rocking more than a few rings on their fingers.
At the top of my list from my round up is #3 (K for Kira, duh), #7 (I love the unexpected factor a double ring adds), and #11 (because who doesn’t need a ring with cat ears?!).

Thanksgiving-Ready Frocks

With Thanksgiving just three days away (can you BELIEVE it?!) it’s time to start thinking about what to wear. I don’t think I’m alone when I say every Thanksgiving I become the victim of an overstuffed belly, so I like to wear something with a little give.
In my opinion, wearing a dress is the most effortless way to be as comfortable as possible with those expanding bellies, but still look polished.

What are you wearing for Thanksgiving this year?

As I was browsing the Internets finding item after item I wanted to add to this edition of my weekly wish list, I found myself very attracted to the edgy pieces that are being shown everywhere this fall.
I am dying to add camo to my closet ASAP, so the True Religion camo skinnies caught my eye. At the top of my list, however, are the Juicy Couture leopard gloves with the leather detail. I mean…I die. I’m thinking those need to be added to my Christmas list this year.
