Paris is Always a Good Idea

One of my best ideas if I say so myself! 
I am off to Paris for five days of total immersion.  It's Paris Fashion Week, so I am carefully planning my introductions and casual banter with Grace Coddington, Anna Wintour, and Rachel Zoe.  There will be time for sightseeing, but priorities must prevail.
Au Revoir!

TGIFashion at the Emmy's

With this weekend came the {dreaded} last goodbye to summer.  Thankfully, I was distracted by the triumphant return of the red carpet.  The Emmy's added a significant amount of excitement to my otherwise slothful Sunday.  I prepared for the actual event with the E! coverage of the red carpet...not to be outdone by the "Countdown to the Red Carpet" an hour before the stars began to arrive.  Just your average 5 hours of awards ceremony coverage.  5 hours was ample time for me to ponder the fashion hits and misses. 
There were plenty of both. 

My faves: bold and bright yellows




 Perfect seasonal timing for the orange and reds:

Go girl!



Unfortunately, you can't have the good without the bad:

 What in the world?




 No Tammy.

Until next time...may the odds be ever in your favor.

Friday Flowers: The Return

TGIF and it couldn't come soon enough.  Cheers to one week down and a fab weekend ahead!  For me it's the three "R's": Relax, Read, Red Wine.  Raise your glass to all things lounge-worthy!  Here are a few Friday Flowers for your weekend.

The Kennedy's Meet NYC

I am a day late, but thinking nonetheless of the magnificently chic wedding of JFK and Jackie.  September 12, 1953... the dress, the cake, the black and white gorgeousness. 

We are one year shy of what would have been their 60th anniversary and this New York City wedding has me thinking of that same vintage feel and classic American royalty.  59 years later and nothing can compare to Jackie, but this comes pretty darn close!

Set sail on a fabulous holiday weekend! 
You know me, summer's not over until the snow starts falling!
Clink, clink!

Ooh La La

Well, it is finally happening.  One month from today, I will embrace my overwhelming francophile-ness in the City of Lights herself!  That's right...I am going "home", to Paris! 
The count down is on!
