10 Designer Pieces Every Woman Should Own

IFB Project #100 asks bloggers to create a list post.  I decided to focus on designer pieces I think every woman should own, especially me.  Mixing classic pieces with some current favorites, I looked for pieces that could flatter a number of body types while, also, looking timeless.  Can anyone go wrong with a trench […]

Inspired by Man of Steel

I went to see Man of Steel last night.  It’s really good.  Re-imagining this iconic hero as a gritty wanderer traveling a world much like our own made this super man much more accessible.  Steering clear of the cheesy I-don’t-recognize-him-because-he-wears-glasses, Man of Steel is a character driven film stuffed with mental Kryptonite while still packing […]

Stuart Weitzman Does Cinderella

My infatuation with Cinderella shoes has been well documented (see here and here).  Enter Stuart Weitzman.  Not only is the designer responsible for making Cinderella’s glass slippers for the Broadway musical, he has, also, created a line inspired by the fairy tale princess.  My favorite is Asteroid, which reminds me of the classic Disney version; […]

Gatsby the Great

I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow I managed to see Star Trek Into Darkness twice the week it came out but didn’t see The Great Gatsby until last night.  I didn’t like the book when I read it in high school.  (I believe my thoughts were along the lines of boring and depressing.) […]

I Heart Rebecca Minkoff

This week’s IFB Project asks bloggers to share their favorite clutches.  My current favorite is the Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag.  It has made previous appearances in outfit posts (here and here) and is my go-to bag of the moment.  A Rebecca Minkoff bag has been on my wish list for a long time, and last year’s Rebecca […]

Time

My mom is a Rod Stewart fan.  When I was younger, I always confused him with Barry Manilow (maybe it was the hair?), and I would call her into the room when the radio played anything from “Someone Like You” to “Copacabana”.  It’s become a bit of a joke between us now, so when I […]
