Lace & Leather

I've really got nothing else to say then these iPhone cases from Tovi Corrie's Etsy store are simple beautiful.  The lace pattern is stunning and I love how the rich colours make each and every detail pop.

Waxed from day to night

A good wax is important to a girl. No matter how much it hurts, the barbaric ritual is a non-negotiable part of our beauty regime. Thus said, I prefer a different sort of wax - the kind you put on rather than ripe off (along with a solid layer of one's dear skin).  I love the waxed denim trend and need to stock my closet with more of this coated craze.  I'll be starting with this pair from Dealuxe.

Sometimes I want to slowly sip a sophisticated martini.  Other times, I want to get steamy with some hot toddy. And sometimes, just sometimes, I want to waste away in margaritaville - and like Bobbi Brown says, that's my prerogative. So while I was searching for my lost shaker of salt, it occurred to me that each cocktail of choice begged for a perfectly suited foot accessory - it's like the art of pairing wine & cheese, only more stylish and way more fun (as long as you can hold you liquor!).Shoe Cocktail

Lady In Leopard

Is there anything more spectacular then the combination of YSL, all-over leopard print, fur and a killer heel?  I. Think. Not. When it's done right, it's done right my friends.  Step off Peg Bundy, this look is just as hot as Al's new arm candy!  40's Leopard

For the Love of Jules

 Julie Sarinana, of Sincerely Jules, has earned her status as my official blogger girl crush (and not just because "Sari" is part of her last name).  She is the epitome of what I have coined "laid-back luxe"and is a constant source of style inspiration. For the love of Jules
