I’ve always had a ring-fetish and came across this awesome ring on Etsy the other day. I just love the mix of silver and gold in this ring, the band thickness, and the monogrammed initial in gold. How unique! I’m thinking of buying one for myself.
“Style is personality. It’s having the ability to look at things beyond fashion and the self-confidence to transform even the simplest thing into something special. It’s a natural quality you cannot learn and there are no rules to follow.” -Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana
I thought it would be most appropriate to share a Dolce & Gabanna style quote, since the duo just debuted its “Alta Moda” collection in an absolutely stunning location – Capri, Italy. How I would love to have been sitting in the audience watching that runway show (the Amalfi Coast in Italy is one of my favorite places in the world)! Guests were seated among the rocks right next to the ocean, watching the models shashay past them in absolutely gorgeous gowns and accessories. For a first-hand account of a show attendee, check out this article on Vogue.

I came across this bathing suit online the other day and absolutely loved it. It’s a little out of my price range, and I’m not one to wear white often (tend to always get it dirty!), but I just love the design – kind of retro-mod don’t you think?
“Happiness is the secret to all beauty; there is no beauty that is attractive without happiness.” -Christian Dior
It’s Paris Fashion Week, so of course this week’s most wanted are several pieces from one of the couture shows – Christian Dior. The show itself included pieces representative of many different eras and was divided into 8 different groups. The pieces I loved so much were all the coats and jackets, and one specific black and white dress. Check them out below! While the fur coat is absolutely gorgeous, I wouldn’t wear it unless it was imitation fur, but I wanted to include it in this post because I love the way all the separate pieces are paired together. Jackets are paired with pants and tops that make the complete outfit look very cut and clean, but still stylish.

Have a clear vision about who you are and make sure your personality and your ideas are reflected in the company. Lastly, a high confidence level and a strong voice are two musts. -Fashion designer Paula Hian

I love anything smelly (scented might be a better word?), but it takes me forever to find just the right scent for me! It doesn’t matter what it is, body wash, a candle, lotion, perfume (this one takes me the longest to find), I always spend hours in the store trying to decide what to buy.
I recently discovered Scentbird – a site that let’s you try a perfume before you buy. So how does it work? Choose any perfume from the website you’d like to test out, and receive a 2 ml. sample. Wear it and see if it’s the right scent for you. If you love the perfume, keep the bottle. If it’s not “your scent” return it with free shipping. Love it!
You can shop by Scent Type, Personality, Occasion, and even type in your favorite perfumes to find your next new scent.

I saw this dress and H&M the other day, and knew right away that it would be this week’s most wanted piece. I really like the pattern and how it’s a long maxi dress – makes it a little more versatile, don’t you think?
