I know it’s the dead of winter, but I can’t stop thinking about spring.  My fashion soul mate (http://clotheshorseok.wordpress.com/ – go visit her, she’s fab!) and I both agree that January is the worst month of the year… fashionably speaking.  All fashion magazines are thin as a pin, and all the stores look terrible and are full of last years unwanted messes.  Booo!!!  

So when I saw this dress (at Gap, of all places), I was inspired and dreaming once again of spring. 

 

  

 

The beauty of this dress is: 

a) it’s cheap – $59.50* plus 20% off 

b)  it’s classic 

c) and best of all, it’s reminiscent of Yves St. Laurent’s FAMOUS safari dress 

taken from French Vogue 1968, worn by model Verushchka

  

I’m thinking this will be a great transition piece to wear into spring.  

Now – wear with blazer, tights, ankle boots 

Later – wear with strappy chunky spring heels and layer on the gold jewelry 

 Mood – Spring Fling

This morning I was looking over today’s Gilt sales. If you’re not familiar with Gilt let me explain.  Gilt is the greatest shopping site EVER!  Every day around 11am CT  they have sales for DESIGNER clothing, shoes, jewelry, menswear, childrens, home stuff, and even vacations.  Up to 70% off!!  It’s a fashionista’s dream come true!!

Anywhoooo, it’s 11:00, and I’m checking Gilt.   Under Jetsetter (the vacation site)  I see the Banyan Tree Mayakoba hotel.  It’s like going to Phuket, only you don’t have a 14-hour+ flight. And it’s conveniently located 30 minutes away from the Cancun airport. 

OOOoooh I need a vay-cay…

The entrance

The resort features 54 Villas; each with their own pool.

 The Spa

While I’m dreaming of Mexico, I must plan my attire… 

Bikini and coverup – check! 

Being the girly-girl I am, I’m a sucker for anything with ruffles 🙂  Shoshanna

Song – “Daydreamin” by Lupe Fiasco

Oh, Dolls, I have a little side project!  I’ve been scouring eBay for the perfect bat wing cocoon cardigan.  Most of the time I have an idea in my head of what I want and I won’t be happy until I find it.  Well, I never found one, so I had it made!!!  I loved it soooo much I had to have a couple more made for my girls.  Check out my eBay if your interested!!!

I styled it with the ribcage Rodarte for Target dress, an Alice + Olivia belt, and a Kenneth Jay Lane Squid Ring.

Mood – Party like it’s 2010

Song – I’m working on a New Year’s Eve playlist, but until then “1999” by Prince will do

The ladies are back!!!!!!!

Too bad we have to wait until May 28th…

Sorry, Dolls… I know I have gotten VERY behind on the 12 days of Christmas, but Rodarte has arrived at Tar-jay!!!  WOOHOO!!!!

I had to get my bum over to Target and spend time trying on everything and grabbing all the sizes I could for my girls!

I’ll admit it’s a bit out there but the stand out piece has definitely been the leopard print lace dress.  Dakota Fanning rocked the lace dress in Teen Vogue…

Love it with the light blue necklace… elegant yet fun!

But, the Dress du Jour has got to be the sequin ribcage dress!

The Rodarte sisters know how to design fashion with a sense of humor!  But what the heck, are those Doc Martens I see…  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Target.com and most of the stores are sold out of the Leopard Lace Dress and the Ribcage dress, but if you’re dying for them click on the links 🙂

And this post wouldn’t be completely without me singing…

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to meeeeeee,

The Rodarte Dress Reese Witherspoon wore!!!!!!!!!!

So. Freakin’. Cool.

Sigh…

(Sorry my tree fell down from the weight of all my goodies. It will be up later!)
