A Fitting Image

I am in LOVE with Elizabeth Messina's photographs.  I was lucky enough to meet her at a wedding event last year, and in addition to being incredibly talented, she is incredibly lovely as well.  Anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer would be extremely lucky to work with her.  She posts many of her beautiful images on her blog: http://www.kissthegroom.com/, including this one, which seems particularly fitting for how I am feeling in my life right now.  Elizabeth coupled this image with an equally fitting poem by Robert Frost - The Road Not Taken. 


Is also my husband's birthday :)

A very happy birthday to the man I love so much.

Birthday Dress

Love this dress by Elizabeth and James.. I wore it for my birthday party last weekend.  Worn here by Keith Richard's daughter Theodora, courtesy of Garance Dore and her amazing photography.  I didn't through a vest over it when I wore it,  but I love this look with the leopard addition and now I have a whole new way to wear it the next time...

As if I wasn't already excited about going to Turkey...

I am taking a little trip to Turkey next summer with my mamacita and I was already really excited about it... but then I saw these.  This shoot by Koray Birand for the October 2010 issue of Marie Claire is set in Istanbul, and is frankly gorgeous.  I just hope my trip to Turkey resembles these photos.. including the clothes worn by Barbara di Creddo... die.

Thigh-Highs and Plush Jackets

Two items a girl simply can't live without: thigh-highs and plush jackets.  Both items so artfully demonstrated here:

the well-priced bag

A bag can make an outfit.  I wouldnt really go far the other way and say that a bag can break an outfit, because I dont really think that is true, but it can make an otherwise eh outfit resemble more of an oooh.  Here are some well-priced bags that could quite possibly make one of your outfits...

Zara Outerwear

Zara has so many options for stylish, affordable outerwear right now.  These are my favorite or Zara's coats, jackets and capes.  I didnt even know I wanted a cape until I saw these... I am in love with the camel colored one.  So Ralph Lauren.
