Spotlight: J.Crew {Day 4}

J.Crew has some marvelous bright, saturated colors this fall.  I'm especially loving the vibrant pants.

Spotlight: J.Crew {Day 3}

Since they'll never go out of style, stripes are a simple, must-have wardrobe staple. They're effortlessly chic, sophisticated and easy to pull off (yes, even the horizontal ones). Luckily J.Crew always has numerous stripey options.

Spotlight: J.Crew {Day 1}

It's not new news that I'm slightly obsessed with all things J.Crew (I know I'm not alone).  If I allowed myself, I could do a post on them every day of the year. I'll spare you all the monotony and cut it down to just one week.

Today's feature is their gorgeous blouses that come in colors and fabrics that transition well from summer to fall and in classic and flattering fits that will last from year to year.

I'll gladly take every single one of these Lulu Frost for J.Crew bangles. The mixing, matching and layering options are endless.

No Words

Recently I experienced something that truly rocked my world and shook me to my core. 23 days ago my bff married Andy, the man of her dreams. I proudly stood up there with them sharing in their utmost special of days. 14 days ago the world and my bff lost Andy. I've never encountered anything so incomprehensible, unimaginably painful and heartbreaking. Absolutely no words suffice,, to even express the tragedy of this loss. My silly little blog seems so ridiculous and unimportant. Who cares about clothes, shoes, hair, makeup and cute celebs. I would give away all my belongings so my girl could have her husband back even for one more more hour. I am blessed to have known and loved him - he was amazing and so is she. I hope to be inspired by the kindness, imagination, convictions and faith of my pal Andy. Please extend your thoughts and prayers for peace and healing to all. I will pick back up again, but for now, it just doesn't seem right going on about frivolous things while part of my heart is missing.
In memory

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together...there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we're apart...I'll always be with you."

Eye Candy Friday

I'm swear I'm not a pedophile or a cougar, but Zac Efron looks good here (and he's totally of age...23).  Don't worry, I won't be posting any pics of the Biebs. 
*Although I did recently see Never Say Never, and that kid is quite talented and sweet :)

Emerald Ears

I adore these Kenneth Jay Lane earrings I spotted in the August issue of Marie Claire. So pretty, and they look pricier than $100, don't they?
They immediately reminded me of the Lorraine Schwartz stunners Angelina Jolie donned at the 2009 Oscars. I'd venture to guess they're slightly more than $100.
