friday finds

Happy Friday, friends? I know you’re ready for the weekend…but how many of you got up early (or stayed up late) to shop the Anniversary Sale this morning? Sadly, I had a very tragic (and upsetting) experience pre-ordering my beloved St. John wrap dress, but I’m happy to report it was still available online this morning, so I circumvented my salesperson and nabbed double points in the process. That’ll show ’em.

Digressions, they plague me…

To get you started for the weekend, a few things that have been making me happy this week:

Summer is always the time of year when I want bright, colorful jewelry, but something that’s still light and easy to wear. I spotted this utterly charming necklace from Nicola Yoon, and have been imagining it with different outfits ever since. It reminds me quite a bit of my beloved Marco Bicego, but not so much as to be upsetting. And it’s about 1/10 the price. Hard to beat that!

I cannot stop thinking about this beautiful Blaise loafer from Loeffler Randall. Every so often, designer Jessie Randall concocts a delight that completely takes over my brain. This is one of those times. Ikat calf hair? Yes, yes, I think so. Now if only it’d go on sale.

I’m having a big jewelry week, apparently. Isn’t this piece from Taylor Kenney wonderful? So unique and eye-catching, but simple and easy to wear. And you know how I love me some druzy action.

And last but not least, I recently made a bargain beauty discovery, and since those are pretty rare in these parts, I had to share. Yes to Carrots! It’s wonderful. I’m particularly smitten with their Intense Repair Body Lotion which has a not-at-all unappealing (and extremely mild) herbal scent, goes on much lighter than my Eucerin standby, absorbs faster and works as well. Oh, and it’s $9.99 at your neighborhood Target. Score!

Now it’s time for a little Friday Finds action from you, my friends. What did you score at the Anniversary Sale? Anything finds you’re especially excited about? I’m dying to know!

currently coveting: nicola yoon designs

hello, dear readers! i’m back from my much-needed sabbatical and, while i suspect posting will be lighter this week as i ease my way back in (and continue to ignore summer fashion as much as possible), i just couldn’t stay away any longer.

lately, i’ve been feeling a bit “over” the big statement necklaces we’ve been wearing the last couple of years.  i’m ready for simple, thoughtful pieces that make a subtle statement, but are still big on style.  maybe with a little bit of color.  and if the designer figured out a way to make it look like i managed to perfectly coordinate a pair of pendants too, well, that would just be icing on the cake.

designer nicola yoon seems to have been reading my mind.  aren’t these just the most elegant necklaces?!  i can envision just about any of them becoming my new signature piece.  i love the touch of color that would be perfect year-round to accent my perpetually neutral wardrobe. and the pricing is absolutely perfect, with most piece in the $100-150 range…well, except for that moonstone and garnet necklace, but it was too stunning not to include.

with a birthday coming up next week, i can only hope that one of these stunners ends up in my jewelry box…the brighter, the better!
