Fantasy Fall Wardrobe

I found some new items to add to my fall wardrobe, but with some of these price tags, it just might be a fantasy :/

Mirror, Mirror On my Feet?

I'm defintely like a crow, I'm always drawn to things that are shiny, covered in sequins or beads and radiating sparkles. SO when I stumbled across these beauties out shopping, I knew I had to have them, even though I'm not really into flats, so I waited for the price to drop and managed to snag a GiltCity voucher, so I got a great deal on these loafers and a matching belt!

J.Crew Factory: Metallic Loafers
I was so mesmerized by these shoes, that I decided to do a quick search to see what else I could find.



 I'm not a fan of the kitten heel, but there's something super cool about these. They kind of look like shoes from the 1800s.

Stella McCartney

My eye is on the Stella McCartney loafers, but I am allergic to paying full-price for anything, so I'll just have to wait a while.

Farewell Summer

Summer is almost gone! What better way to spend your free time than at an outdoor party. If you're host or guest, you can still look fabulous and prepare something that will get everyone talking.

After returning from a 3week long trip to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji (yes I need to share pictures and other details) in early November, I've been hit by the travel bug again. I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but this year I'm making a travel list, so here goes, in no particular order...

1. Dallas, TX
2. Aruba 
(My friend who is a flight attendant highly recommends this island.)
3. Dominica  
(I read about this island in an airline magazine, 
but I still haven't figured out how to get there!)
4. Arizona
5. Ocean City, MD 
(This was a childhood vaction spot, and after returning last year ( after a 15 year hiatus) with my niece and nephew, it's on the list as one of my annual destinations.
6. Los Angeles, CA  
(I make an annual trip to visit a dear friend, and it's always a good experience!)
7. San Francisco, CA
8. Pilates retreat 
(I've found two retreats that are scheduled for this year, so I'm going to try to make it to one of them.)
9. Savannah, GA (SCAD fashion show)
10. Art Basel (Miami)
11. Memphis, TN
12. Mexico

  Cuba is also on the list as soon as the travel restrictions are lifted! And I want to fly Emirates somewhere, but I may not be able to fit a long trip into my schedule...

What are your travel plans for 2015?

Glasses are a big part of my life. I can't see without them, sometimes I can't hear without them (I know that does not make sense in theory, but I swear it's true). I have quite a few pairs already in different shapes and lens sizes and colors, but I think I need one more pair...

I am not sure what I am looking for, but this handy guide from my eyeglass shop is definitely a big help in figuring out what I'm looking for in a new pair.
