Friday!

Friday is FRIYAY!!! Tomorrow we head to the mountains for some cross country practice & a family picnic….I might have to don PANTS. But until then:

  2. Belt: Oscar de la Renta
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade
  4. Necklace: Swarovski

Yes, I wore this last Sunday too. Oops! Sometimes it’s just easier to repeat an outfit. 

Until next time,

A Recap

I fear I have been horrid at keeping this updated lately. Every year our church does a big women’s event, and the week before my schedule gets a little bananas. It’s great fun, and I enjoy my yearly volunteer time. 

Thursday I wore this: 

      

  1. Dress: Kate Spade Corley
  2. Belt: secondhand
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade

Friday, I wore this dress, which has been on repeat quite a bit this summer, as it’s a little big and so does not exasperate my still troublesome whiplash/neck/chest pains from our accident back in May: 

  

  

  

  1.  Dress: Kate Spade (PS if you are a 8-10 and are looking for this dress, shoot me an email)
  2. Belt: secondhand (no label. Might be handmade)
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin strassed in Alexandrite AB

Today I wore this to church: 

  

  

  1.  Dress: Kate Spade “Havana” 
  2. Belt: Kate Spade (but a Goodwill find)
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  4. Necklace: Swarovski

This dress was actually a VERY recent purchase, as in my husband and I took a spin up to the local outlets (hey, the kids needed athletic clothes!), and this had finally gone on sale enough that I purchased it. However, it’s runs VERY big. I’m going to have to have it taken in. But it’s a fun and unique print!

Some photos I took Friday night: 

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

 I do not have any information about pricing, but you can always call your local store (or any outlet!), they ship for a mere $5. I have my eye on one of the dark blue bags, that color is so divine!!! And maybe a polka dot bag. We shall see what the Labor Day weekend sale ends up being.

Hope your weekend was grand! Until next time,

Jules

P.S.: a small reminder, please do not use my photos to sell your Kate Spade dresses. My blog content is owned by me and not for use elsewhere without my permission. That said, if you see a listing anywhere of me wearing a Kate Spade dress, it is NOT my listing and I am not associated with it. Sellers who use photos not their own, I always say be VERY wary of that when purchasing secondhand! Protect yourself, so many counterfeit items out there!!


Fashion District Bound!

Whew, what an exciting day today was! A girlfriend of mine and I set out early this morning for downtown LA, specifically to look at sparkly things! Along the way we stopped in Burbank at this lovely store, It’s a Wrap, where they sell items from movie & TV sets! I’ve been to the Hollywood location before.

I only bought two things, this Adrianna Papell dress ($8)

And this vintage poodle skirt ($4)

My girlfriend found a pair of Stuart Weitzman heels for $3.40!!! (The whole store was 20% or more off) They need new jewels on the toe, but we remedied that at the crystal shops in downtown LA.

I did find a few verrrry tempting items. One was too large (but a stunning DKNY skirt, black & gold brocade), and the other two skirts, well, I wasn’t willing to shell out their asking price. Which I feel was a tad high. But, defiantly a must-stop if you are in the Los Angeles area.

Here was my outfit today, all laid out last night:

Bold? Yes, but why not? Here’s it on:

20130129-180244.jpg

Cardigan: Target, little girls’ section
Skirt: Banana Republic (summer ’12)
Shoes: Strassed Manolo Blahnik flats
Handbag: Kate Spade
Jewelry: Omega watch & vintage necklace

The shoes I actually ended up wearing:

As much as I adore my multi-colored Manolos, my feet refused to cooperate. (Naught feet!!) It worked out, as I love my Jimmy Choo flats for lots of walking.

After It’s a Wrap, we headed into downtown, and got to meet someone special, Joey from Redo My Shoe which was a real treat! He has an amazing personality, and is so real and down to earth. I felt an instant affinity for him in our emails, and I’m just so excited he IS all that and a bag of vegan veggies in person!

We of course picked up sparkly things (hello?!), Light Siam for a pair of crazy shoes I’m doing for my boss (these will be amazing, let me tell you!!!), and some trims to make bib necklaces:

I have to say though, the true highlight of my day (sorry Joey!!!!) was Freebirds World Burrito. I haven’t had one since being in Texas a few years back. My tummy is so happy, it was amazing.

Now off to play with my new “toys”!

Until next time,
