Glamour Obsession: Chanel 2.55 Jumbo Bag

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are having a smashing holiday season!  Today I am contributing over on La Dolce Vita about my current obsession, the Chanel 2.55 Jumbo Bag.  Be sure to stop by and say hello and read more about it here! 
What's on your wish list? 


Crushing on Tommy Smythe

Every saturday afternoon I religiously DVR all my favorite HGTV shows and lazily lounge on my couch relaxing.  My favorite shows (besides Color Splash and Candice Olsen) are Sarah's House and Design Inc. I love watching the dynamic duo, Sarah Richardson and Tommy Smythe, remodel and redecorate fabulous spaces.  I love their creativity and quirky personalities, and I especially love Tommy's quick wit (his dandy sense of style rocks too)!
I about fell over when I saw Tommy's recent project in House and Home.  I love how he mixes traditional elements with a gentleman's haberdashery.  Zebra, houndstooth, and gray wool fabrics are so warm and cozy, but I especially love how he offsets these with glossy black walls, crisp white trim and lots of dark wood.  
This gold mirror hangs perfectly over the sofa.
I love the look of round mirrors grouped together up the stairs, gives it an aged look.
This bathroom packs so much punch for such a small space!  I love when a small powder room has a surprise element like this zig-zag pattern in yellow, black and gray! 
Loving the pops of orange mixed with navy!  This is fast becoming one of my favorite color combos!
Are you dying over the kitchen yet?  He perfectly blended gold hardware with classic chrome faucets.  That floor is beyond stellar!
I want that red Chesterfield and I love the mix of gray, black and gold.  
 Lots of crisp black and white, seriously I want to move in here!!!!


I'm a Winner!

I never win anything.  So when Paloma from La Dolce Vita told me I was the winner of a brand new Orange Teddie Tote from Gigi New York I was super excited and delighted!  I can't wait to receive my new tote and use it as my new diaper bag for little Barron.  Be sure and check out some of their other styles here!


Pretty Little Christmas

'Tis the Season to trim the tree, dress the fireplace mantel, and drink some stiff egg nog!  Christmas time is here, my favorite time of year, and I'm really inspired to go all out this year!  
I absolutely love silver and gold mixed with pastels, it's gives such a twinkling and glittery feel to the holidays.
 I love the smell of a real tree, but love the look of a fake white tree dressed in pretty pastel ornaments.  If you don't have the real thing, just buy some holiday scented candles and that should make up for it.
 I love a tree sitting underneath a staircase in an entryway.  Adore all the gold details!
Lots of pretty pink is my favorite accent color for Christmas!  It's so cheery and just makes you smile!
 Please excuse the mess, I'm wrapping all my gifts!  How lovely is this dining room with all it's holiday decor?  I love those wreaths too!
Silver ornaments in glass bowls is so easy to do.  I do this every year with my silver disco ball ornaments and they just sparkle with the candlelight.
 I wish I had a grand fireplace mantel to deck out like this!  
 More pretty pastels and I love the little bird accent.

 This tree is hands down my favorite!  It's so playful and bold with it's monkeys as ornaments.  I love all the navy and pink and light blue accents!

 The Tiffany blue and silver is so serene, I think it's my favorite theme of all!

Cheers to you and yours!


Dior Suite

Everything about The Dior Suite at The St. Regis is perfect.  The light gray, cream, and gold touches has me dreaming of a light and airy place to rest my head.  As you may not know, I have a love affair for all things French and this room is my idea of heaven.  

Don't you want to just move in???


iPhone Cases

I recently upgraded my boring black iPhone case while passing through Nordstrom a few weeks ago.  Although I believe spending $40 bucks on plastic is a total waste, I was suckered by the unexpectedly cool design I decided to purchase (read more to see what I bought)!  Then I started cruising the internet and found these styles from Iomoi that I am absolutely in love with!     
I totally want this one with the leopard and gold crest.  Love the pink and orange color combo too!
...and here's the Rebecca Minkoff style that I bought!  I totally love the snow leopard print that reminds me so much of my favorite fabric by Hinson.
Any of these would make great little stocking stuffers!!!

Thirsty Thursdays: Tea and Leaves

I love the smell of crisp leaves in the Fall...I'll drink a cup of tea to that!  


Restoration Hardware: The Gallery

I miss West Hollywood (at times).  Back in the days when I worked at the PDC I used to walk down Robertson to the shops on Beverly Blvd. and just hang.  I rarely make it east past Beverly Glen these days since I work in Westwood.  So when I got the mega heavy new Restoration Hardware catalog for The Gallery, I was intrigued.... 
Once the flagship location for Williams Sonoma Home, the property has been converted into a one-stop shopping mecca for all things Home.  The back parking lot is now a stunning garden complete with hanging chandeliers.
Inside there are fabrics, paints, accessories, bedding, and furniture galore.  The dark gray and neutral palette seriously has me swooning!  
 There's an organic tea salon...
 and a fresh floral boutique...
 ...and of course, tons of beautiful pieces of furniture perfectly styled.
 This is by far my favorite room.  I'll take the giant chandelier and tufted sofas.  I seriously am eyeing the tufted Chesterfield.  
 ...and don't forget their bedding.  
I love the simple and clean lines of the sheets and duvets.  It's not fussy or prissy, and definitely has enough masculinity to balance the feminine lines of the furniture.  I am drooling over this bed.  I will definitely be making the trek over to WeHo soon to have a look for myself.
