For the Love of Roses…

Oscar- rose ring

{oscar de la renta resin rose ring}

Since I am a sucker for something pretty (…not to mention pink, floral and jewelry related), when I came across this ring I realized I would probably be able to think of little else until I owned it.   To prove that point, where as an hour ago I was working, now I seem to be scouring the internets trying to find it.  On sale.

All of this lack of working is due to the fact I’m an avid follower of @oscarprgirl (she was quite the influencer of my brunette to platinum locks change a short time ago).  It seems Instagram has sidelined me again.  Apparently I’m a product of overstimulation.

I need to follow more @forever21 and less @oscarprgirl.

Noir et Blanc…

Oscar de la Renta- PaperCity

Unless you have been hiding in an unfashionable hole, it has been hard to not notice the major black and white trend for Spring ’13.

And as I read in the PaperCity Magazine draped across my lap, black and white is everywhere.

Chanel clutch- Papercity

Apparently I need to go shopping.

Archetype Me Please…



It’s odd how much information I gleam from Instagram.  I follow Oscar de la Renta’s PR girl (@oscarprgirl) and she had taken the test.    I told my friend in LA to follow her because it’s a constant stream of couture, cocktails, travel and Oscar sketches.

Talk about wanting to swap lives with someone.

Anyways, since Instagram told me to, I took the quiz.  And while I loved the questions, the website is what’s amazing.  Take a quiz, get a personality assessment and then have a website created around your preferences.

I tried to answer all the questions honestly this time.  I think I normally I answer with how I would like to be perceived and end up with an assessment like, ‘ you love baking, children, working hard, working out’ and so on.

To which anyone who has ever met me will say, “interesting…when do I meet that person?”

So I was begrudgingly honest and found I am~

34%- Creative (I can live with that, I’m more of a big picture no details kind of person)

31%- Fashionista (some days)

15%- Intellectual (apparently I’m not terribly bright, everyone else I know ranked in the 40- percentile on that one)

The Pinterest inspired website site is really interesting; all books, beauty advice/products, fashion, etcetcetc, cater to my personality traits.

Now I’m off to go buy some sodoku and crosswords puzzles.

Christmastime…Neiman’s & Target

Neiman’s at Christmastime is one of my favorite places.  Of all time.

 I love their downtown Dallas location; they put up their huge Christmas tree in the make up department and decorate the whole store.  I just want to live there.

But now, Neimans will be walking distance at Target this holiday season. NM recruited 24 American designers to create gifts for the discounter between $8 and $500.

Band of Outsiders, Alice+Olivia, Lela Rose, Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa, Tracy Reese…

I am so excited!
