Spectacular Sunday with my new Loft top & spring thangs!

When a friend from high school send me this top from Loft on Instagram, 
I just love the embroidered glasses, I knew I had to have it! 

I recently found this heart eye sunglass version from sugar hill brighton

I love it & could not wait to wear it, 
had to pair it with some red specs of course! 


What I Wore: glasses- c/o Glasseslit, lips- Elizabeth Mott "Tints & Sass" & Loreal "304 Ruby Opera", necklace- StyleShop @ FIT, top & pants- Loft, flats- Loly in the Sky, bag- vintage Louis Vuitton  




Today we went to pick up our plants for our garden! 
{See last year's HERE}



All planted! 

Also love these little planters that Charlie added to our falling apart stairs...

& our stump got some new plants too! 


& Charlie got Arnold a catnip plant, 
he is in love and has been rolling around with this leaf...

I love this post that I saw on Facebook:

& my hubby plants and takes care of our garden and these little fur babies:


This sunny day {after about a week of rain} has me like: 

I need to know who makes those glasses & get them on my face! 
So springy and beautiful!

Spotlight Saturday :: Custom Portraits!


When Anna posted that she was doing custom portraits for $10 on Instagram, 
I knew I had to take her up on it & get one done! 


& I love it!

I can't wait to put it in a frame and find the perfect spot for it! 
I will update this post when I do! 

Speaking of portraits, 
I am so excited to share this custom portrait of the Mahoney family made by HannahPottah 

Thanks HannahPottah for making yet another amazing gift! 
{see the family portrait my sister Audrey had made for our mom HERE!}

Bodega Bag :: High Price Tag To Look This Low


I am obsessed with this bodega bag from Gelareh Mizrahi 

Anyone have an extra $1,500 for a python bag, 
that is made to look like a plastic bodega bag? 

Can I borrow it with no intention of returning it? 

Thanks.

Reminds me of this Jil Sander brown paper bag from ManRepeller years ago...
for $290...

& as the ManRepeller herself, Leandra Medine, said in that blog post:
"A few years ago, I read a quote by Karl Lagerfeld that said something along the lines of, “the future of fashion is to spend a lot of money without looking like you spent it.” It sounded ridiculous at the time, wasn’t the point to do the exact opposite?" 

& we all know that Karl Lagerfeld is never wrong. 

More evidence in this recent post about designer trash bags from diet_prada on Instagram
Right: original from Spanish label biis
Left: copy from Maison Margiela

This post by DailyStruggles on Facebook is sadly too accurate:

& now you can work this hard to look this poor.

Ah, Fashion.
