I am going to have to announce my hiatus until the beginning of November. I am frantically packing up the contents of my life as I get ready to make the move from the east coast to the best (west) coast. I am also taking a month long 'sabbatical' abroad, and time has really gotten away from me. I had grand ideas of having my blog posts done in advance......Yeah, that sure didn't happen. Once I return I will be better than ever. That's a promise.

And please don't forget about me!!

Faux Fur Friday

So, I have mentioned my love for Rachel over and over. I am not so sure I have shown the same love for faux fur. I am obsessed. I think I could like real fur, but I am an animal lover, so that just doesn't fly. Check out Rachel's faux fur vest for QVC, for a steal at $79.90. I.Die.

The REAL September Issue

Grace Coddington is the Creative Director at Vogue. The real brains behind the Vogue name. Anna Wintour may be at the top of the masthead food chain, but Grace makes most of the fashion mag's ideas into a reality. She is basically a genius. I heart her. I finally saw The September Issue, if you can't tell. Here is my lady after being discovered in a Vogue modeling contest many moons ago.

Vacation, transitions, moving from one coast to another, planning a month long European getaway. All reasons I have slacked on my blog. Trying to get it back together again. Thank you for your patience.

White Now

A) It is Labor Day already, B) It is September 3rd, C) It is Labor Day already. I know I have blogged about what to wear with Fall fast approaching, but somehow I thought I had some time on my hands before the 3 day weekend hit me in the face.

I have mentioned here that white (imho) is not only okay post labor day, but wearing of the non color should be encouraged. Who made that rule anyway? We all know rules were made to be broken.....

Some fabulous white to wear well after the leaves change and the temperature drops.

1. Camilla Skovgaard Cutout Booties with Lug Sole, $472
2. Balmain Bow Embellished Silk Blouse, $4,435
3. Alice & Olivia Elyse Silk Dress, $420

Splurge vs. Save

I know it is hard to spend money on shades. They are easily lost, smashed, stepped on, swept up in a tornado, etc. And when something is that fragile, you don't want to spend serious cash. Personally, I am willing to spend upwards of $200 (okay $300) to have a piece of the designer pie. But, when places like Forever 21 make their own version of the iconic wayfarer, what is better? A splurge? Or to save??

1. Ray Ban Classic Wayfarer, $189
2. Forever 21 Sunglasses, $5.80

Beauty Obsessions

Best. Shampoo. Ever. No, seriously. My hair was in need of rescue - and this really provided it. I have been on a quest to get moisture and shine back into my life and I gave this a try. It is a tad pricey, but well worth it. I am one happy camper!

I am a beauty junkie - and I love to hear about any/every new product. Any other new products worth knowing about?
