Pretty New Dresses

Just dropping by to say hello. Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm very fortunate in that mine will be continuing into tomorrow, as my office will be closed in honor of President's Day. I just LOVE long weekends and wish they weren't so few and far between.

Anyhow, it's been a relaxing couple of days, and I've managed to do some serious scoping of springtime fashion on the web. I've found so many items that are now on my wish list!!!!

One designer that I really adore is Tracy Reese. She has such unique items in a wonderful variety of colors. The attention to detail is impeccable, as well. Even her Plenty line is pretty darn cute. I am seriously crushing on this blue striped dress I just came across on her website.

Pretty reminiscent of last year's Speckled Ink dress sold at Anthropologie, but a bit more vibrant and cute, in my opinion. The length is just slightly longer, too, which was the main reason that I passed on the Anthro version last year.

Speckled Ink Dress from 2010

Another pretty dress that I'm lusting after comes to us courtesy of Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique and can be ordered from Nordstrom's website. This dress is so delicate and feminine with so many amazing details! I just love the lace bodice, rosettes and beading. The color is listed as "coconut," so I'm not sure if this is a true white or more of a cream colored garment, but it's breathtaking either way.

Enjoy the rest of your evening and let me know what you ladies think of these dresses!:)

Pretty in Pink

Hello, ladies, I hope you're all off to a great start to the weekend. I know I am, because I just added a gorgeous new item to my spring wardrobe.

When browsing online earlier, I was checking out all of the feminine, girly new items coming out for spring, and my eyes spied this to DIE for, amazingly beautiful little number from a website called Sense of Fashion. How could I possibly pass up a pink ruffled coat?

This beauty reminds me of cotton candy goodness and I can't wait to pair it with my whites, camels and grays for a super feminine springtime look. (Yes, as you may have noticed, my shopping ban has been broken, LOL. Thank God for tax refunds!!:))

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

New Anthropologie purchase

Good afternoon, lovely ladies, hope your week flew by! It's finally Friday, thank God! Even better, I am off of work today AND will get to enjoy a holiday on Monday (President's Day in the U.S.), so I am ecstatic! Anyone have any fabulous weekend plans that they'd care to share?

To top things off, it is currently *65* degrees here in NYC. We're getting a brief sneak peek of springtime, so I'm heading out shortly to squeeze as much warmth and sunlight into my winter-weary bones as possible.

Before I run out, I thought I'd share a beautiful new purchase with all of you. As you know, Anthropologie is just about my favorite store on the planet, but lately, their offerings have been disappointing me. When I'm feeling uninspired, I always turn to Ebay to scope out some new possibilities, and I came across an auction for this gorgeous Anthro ivory sweater dress by Viola. I don't recall seeing this in stores or in a catalog, so I have no clue as to what year this item came out, but it was love at first sight. The auction sure wasn't cheap, but it ended in my favor and I can't wait to get this!

Well, I can hardly stand sitting inside this little apartment, so I'm off to enjoy this amazing, albeit short-lived spring weather we're experiencing! Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Vintage Chanel

Hello, lovelies, I hope you're all enjoying the weekend thus far! Thought I'd share a few more pics of my lovely "new" handbag, this beautiful vintage Chanel 2.55 Classic Double Flap Bag that I purchased recently.

Last night, my boyfriend and I shared an amazing early V-Day dinner at a wonderful Italian restaurant, so it was the perfect occasion to introduce this gorgeous little number to the world.:) I'm also wearing my new purple dress from Nordstrom, which I scored for 40% off last week!

Since we're having some decent, mild weather here in NYC, I'm about to head dowtown to see what the stores have to offer in the way of early spring fashion. I may even poke my head in at Anthropologie to check out which new dresses have finally appeared on the floor.

Enjoy the rest of your day and let me know if you bought anything good recently!

Sneak Peek!

EEK, I'm super excited, so I had to share my latest purchase with all of you. If you've read my blog for awhile now, you know that I've been coveting this vintage beauty for quite some time, and she's finally mine!

More pics to follow soon! Have a fabulous evening!

Finally, Anthropologie!

Hi girls, how have you been????? Wow, it's been a minute since my last post...a long minute, LOL!!! Guess I just needed to take a little break from the blog world. Don't get me wrong, I still lurk around and read and post frequently on others blogs, but as for my own, well, I guess the serious lack of cute winter clothing has left me feeling rather uninspired. Now that we're turning the corner into spring (in a little over a month), I'm FINALLY stumbling upon some lovely, feminine frocks that have sparked my interest.

I've been pretty vocal about my disappointment in Anthropologie items lately. The dresses this winter haven't been that great, and in some instances, they've been downright ugly, IMHO. Pretty disappointing, considering that this is usually my very favorite store to shop at. I've been religiously visiting their website each day, though, always hoping to find something new and beautiful, and today, I finally got my wish.

Behold, the lovely addition of the Glanz Dress by Beth Bowley ($158). The colors are so fresh and pretty, and the shape of the garment is sure to flatter all sorts of different body types. Can't wait to try this one on at the store. I hope the colors are as vibrant in person as they appear on my monitor!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
