my big fat birthday list

Friends, it’s my birthday week! (Yes, I get a whole week – I’m that girl, and I’m not even sorry.) This is a milestone birthday for me, and it’s the first one that’s made me squirm in my seat a little bit. Do I dare even tell you my age? Let’s just say I’m switching boxes on the ol’ “how old are you” survey question, and I am not at all happy about my new box.

Shoving aside the thoughts of impending age, a birthday is still big news in my house, and I’ll take any excuse to make a wishlist. Sure, it’s 90% pure fantasy, but you’ve got to dream big to win big, am I right?

For my bod: Printed pants are falling all over themselves to get into my closet, but I love that these Rag & Bone Raja jeans are a bit different than the standard-issue fare. I think they’ll last a bit longer, and be more wearable too. And it’s no big surprise that a Vince cardi would make its way onto my list, but this especially splurge-y, leather-trimmed version is making me so happy this fall. There are actually two styles floating around out there (here’s the second), and I’m torn. What’s your fave?

For my jewelry box: My earring collection has stagnated in a big way. I need some color in my life! Okay, these Pade Vavra druzy studs aren’t technically color, but I think sparkle should count, don’t you? If not, these sweet little gold-dipped studs from A Merry Mishap are an easy bargain and

For my arm: A major item on my list is a new bag for fall. Don’t get me wrong, I swoon for my Chanel. But she’s not exactly an everyday bag. I’m thinking either navy or grey for my fall addition. Dream version? Lanvin’s For Me, a navy/black combo I’ve been swooning over for months. Reality version? I’m still dreaming about Gryson’s Ruby satchel, and crossing my fingers a navy version will appear.

For my toes: Still stewing over the latest from Pied Juste (a new line by the ousted Sigerson & Morrison) – just can’t decide where to start. Oh-so-on-trend ankle strap oxblood flats, or a cutout suede mini-wedge? Decisions, decisions.

For my belly: What girl doesn’t want candy for her birthday? Vosges is so my jam when it comes to splurging on sweets – I’ll take a box of caramel marshmallows and one of their new Wink of the Rabbit caramels, please.

Happy (almost) birthday to me!

this just in: tiffini dooris store closing sale

for those of you that have been longtime admirers of tiffini dooris‘ beautiful jewelry designs, you’ll be sad to hear that she’s closing up shop.  i’ve been a fan of tiffini’s since the very beginning…in fact, her rough-cut sapphire necklace was my first fine jewelry purchase for myself.  she just has a talent for making pieces that are special, but still so classic and wearable…i really hate to see her leave the design sphere.

if there’s a silver lining to this cloud, it’s that tiffini has put her entire website on a crazy, super sale to get rid of her stock.  you have until july 12 to buy, and prices are up to 75% off, including my absolute favorites from her latest collection:

Picture 10

those mint leaf earrings, at left, are just so sweet and delicate…and now they’re only $20.  even the simple gold disc earrings at right (and yes, those are real diamonds) top out at $57.  all of her pieces are designed to become serious classics in your jewelry box – i have earrings almost identical to those little gold drops, and i can tell you i wear them at least three times a week.  they’re perfection!

she also has several pieces by other designers on the site (also heavily discounted), including catherine weitzman and pade vavra, but it’s tiffini’s pieces i’d be scrambling for.  whatever you choose, shop fast…i’m sure her stock is limited.  and of course, let me know what you pick up!!
