Taylor Swift can do no wrong in my book right now. She is so girlishly stylish. I love her fairytale aura. Right now with the holidays coming I'm loving all the sequins and sparkle I'm seeing in fashion. I still have some skirts and tank tops like this from the last sequin surge in 2006.

Not totally crazy about these boots, but a different pair would have been a fun surprise instead of heels. It feels powerful and very rockstarish to rock some boots.
She really looks stunning in green and I am totally into jeweled tones for the winter season.

Many props to you Taylor. I hope she finds her Prince Charming, but there is plenty of time for that! Right now she should just enjoy being the FEARLESS belle of the ball!

This book is my next purchase. A Boston Terrier changed my life, and I too believe that dogs can teach us the secret to happiness. If you have spent a morning with one sniffing the autumn air, you can instantly be reminded in the beauty of the moment.

I'm anxious to purchase this book, but then I had to question myself. Do people buy books anymore? Am I one of the last?

I don't have a kindle.

Should I get one?

There is something about a book that is your own though, non? I like to underline, to fold pages, to revisit the book again & again. If I don't truly love it, just enjoyed it, then I pass it on to a friend with like tastes. Waste of money? Waste of space? I just don't know. If you love kindle, let me know why. I'm open to less clutter! But to part with my books? My favorite books?

When JFK Jr. announced to the world that his mother had passed he described her leaving this world surrounded by the things and people she loved. He mentioned her books. It struck a chord with me. I understood it. I have carried some books with me in a purse much like a good luck charm, or a shot of courage. I have revisited passages in doctor's offices, funeral homes, and in the car before a job interview. My Grandmother's bible still smells like her perfume. It's such a treasure.

Emily Dickinson said, "there is no frigate like a book, To take us lands away..." Can we travel the same way with a kindle? Is the emotional bond the same?

I am obsessed with old images of Marlo Thomas lately. These boots & that perfect hair?

...and the coats
The coats were amazing.
Marlo was "That Girl", a series that went off the air before I was born! The image stills, however, stand up over time. There is a vivacious energy to the clothes. I have a pink Marc Jacobs coat that is not that unlike the one above. There is optimism and fun in Marlo's styling. Besides, who doesn't want to be that girl ?

I have fallen in love with a dress.
DVF Spring 2010 Lookbook

I have always loved DVF. She is the epitome of style and a self-made woman who made such an impact on her industry. My favorite thing about her is that she nutures all of her creative friends: artists, designers, writers, and helps them to achieve their full potential. Like they said in Glee, "We already won because you were our teacher." Anyone lucky enough to have this icon offer guidance should listen up. She is a fashion treasure, mother of two, business tycoon, and a woman to admire.

"The inspiration for Ms. von Furstenberg's New York Fashion Week spring line came from the desert, her love of antiquity, and images like a phoenix rising. Ms. von Furstenberg visited Egypt and ancient parts of the world and similarly, her collection embodied that adventuring spirit. Her woman travels through time and temples, whether it be Greece, Italy, Mesopotamia or Africa, on an exploration of beauty around the world.

Spring and summer 2010 von Furstenberg fashion incorporated ethereal and romantic prints. Complicated layering was excessive at times, but like the iconic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, many of these looks were simply elegant. Lively and vital, the fashion show exuded imagery from great civilizations. Olympia, Rome, Cairo, Babylon, and Africa all lent their styles to an elegant world vision."

Been so busy living in my backyard! With a new playset & the Twincesses' pool, there has been precious little time to blog. However, when I put on the most comfy longing ensemb today I almost literally exclaimed out loud, "I have to tell my blog friends about Majamas!"

I got mine at the most amazing store when I was preggers. The darling sales girl said they were comfy and totally pretty, so even though I was a brand new Mom (nursing twins) I wouldn't feel unpretty if people dropped by to see us! (No one did.) But I still LOVE the lounging clothes I bought!! SO SOFT & they do look pretty, which I'm sure husband & my immediate fam appreciated:)

If you are a new mom, momma to be or have a new mommy in your tribe, get her some Majamas! She will love them long after nursing goes back from a verb to a profession.(Unless you include "nursing" a cocktail. I still use it in that sense. )

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

the lululemon manifesto

Not only do I love this company's products, I Love their manifesto & the fact that they even have a manifesto!!! LOL

the lululemon manifesto
•Drink FRESH water and as much water as you can. Water flushes unwanted toxins from your body and keeps your brain sharp.
•A daily hit of athletic-induced endorphins gives you the power to make better decisions, helps you be at peace with yourself, and offsets stress.
•Do one thing a day that scares you.
•Listen, listen, listen, and then ask strategic questions.
•Write down your short and long-term GOALS four times a year. Two personal, two business and two health goals for the next 1, 5 and 10 years. Goal setting triggers your subconscious computer.
•Life is full of setbacks. Success is determined by how you handle setbacks.
•Your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself.
•That which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least.
•Stress is related to 99% of all illness.
•Jealousy works the opposite way you want it to.
•The world is changing at such a rapid rate that waiting to implement changes will leave you 2 steps behind. DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW!
•Friends are more important than money.
•Breathe deeply and appreciate the moment. Living in the moment could be the meaning of life.
•Take various vitamins. You never know what small mineral can eliminate the bottleneck to everlasting health.
•Don’t trust that an old age pension will be sufficient.
•Visualize your eventual demise. It can have an amazing effect on how you live for the moment.
•The conscious brain can only hold one thought at a time. Choose a positive thought.
•Live near the ocean and inhale the pure salt air that flows over the water, Vancouver will do nicely.
•Observe a plant before and after watering and relate these benefits to your body and brain.
•Practice yoga so you can remain active in physical sports as you age.
•Dance, sing, floss and travel.
•Children are the orgasm of life. Just like you did not know what an orgasm was before you had one, nature does not let you know how great children are until you have them.
•Successful people replace the words “wish”, “should” and “try” with “I will”.
•Creativity is maximized when you’re living in the moment.
•Nature wants us to be mediocre because we have a greater chance to survive and reproduce. Mediocre is as close to the bottom as it is to the top, and will give you a lousy life.
•lululemon athletica creates components for people to live longer, healthier and more fun lives. If we can produce products to keep people active and stress-free, we believe the world will become a much better place.
•Do not use cleaning chemicals on your kitchen counters. Someone will inevitably make a sandwich on your counter.
•SWEAT once a day to regenerate your skin.
•Communication is COMPLICATED. We are all raised in a different family with slightly different definitions of every word. An agreement is an agreement only if each party knows the conditions for satisfaction and a time is set for satisfaction to occur.
•What we do to the earth we do to ourselves.
•The pursuit of happiness is the source of all unhappiness.

Home Sweet Home

This book is a treasure. Everytime I'm doing a little redecorating I like to revisit it's lush pages. Nesting is one of my favorite pastimes and a great way to express creativity. Nothing makes me happier than fabric swatches and hanging new art on a wall. I adore my home. It is such a joy to look around and truly love your surroundings. Check out this book if you're looking for a bit of romantic inspiration.

"A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.” Dream on friends! XO

Young Victoria

I knew so much about the fashion of her era and her later life. This movie was an education on her love story. Well-acted and gorgeous to look at. Two (manicured)thumbs up. Def spare the hubby on this one though, it's a chick flick for sure. Watch with your BFF.

Beauty Hype

It's spring & frankly,I needed a beauty product fix. I decided to do something very differently this shopping spree. Instead of buying tried & true products or making discoveries on my own: I decided to believe the hype! I went after products I've heard all about, highly touted by fashion mags & friends.

First up is Sarah Jessica Parker's new fragrance NYC. It's been heralded as the IT fragrance for summer as the new S&TC movie is only 6 weeks away! SJP herself says, "it's a party in a bottle." I liked the sweet fruity floral fragrance and the packaging is not only pretty, but super potable and easy to toss in an over-stuffed purse. The deciding factor on making it my spring scent was when The Love of My Life said, "You smell great."

Tarte's lip stain in charmed. I'm not sure what lipsurgence is. Tarte promotes it as increasing lip moisture by 6000%. My lips do feel a little tingly & cool when I wear it & since champagne is not something I regularly have at 8a.m. Tarte is going to have to do.

Nars multiple is a great product for Mom's on the go! Cheeks, lips & eyes. It is a great product to throw in my bag & spruce up in 59 seconds or less.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion has been praised by fashionista Laura forever! It does create a nice palette for eyeshadow. (But I need to buy nicer eyeshadow to truly test it.) The packaging is great, in that its pretty & easy to use.

YSL Touche Eclat - I read a long time ago that this was the one product Victoria Beckham cannot live without. It goes on smoothly & there is no caking or cracking (even after a busy day outdoors & on the playground).

All and all I didn't NEED any of these products, but I sure had fun buying & using them. Very occasionally its fun to revel in the hype!!

All the lovely ladies wear Lilly! Those are my Twincesses in their Kelsea dresses. The rest are from the web sites new additions. The styling is just perfect in these pics. I love it. I have some events this summer. I'm debating ensembles. I love these dresses. I only wish Lilly made them a smidge longer(or added just a lil extra for alterations). I usually have to go to my seamstress and have ANY extra let down. Being the Mommy of 2 toddlers means bending over in the craziest of situations & one wants to feel "covered". What are your favorite dresses for summer?

It Might Get Loud

The documentary "It Might Get Loud" is a must for anyone who truly adores music. I've written music since I was eleven years old. The Edge is a favorite. I really enjoyed this film. Check it out & get inspired by originality and creative freedom celebrated. Beautiful.

What would Martha do?

Whether you are celebrating Holy Week ,or The Rites of Spring, I hope you do it in grand style. Where I come from winter is long & cold. We shed our parkas like butterflies from the chrysalis & we really know how to enjoy a 50 degree day!

I have to thank my Husband for indulging my over-the-top need for holiday expression. I come by it naturally. The women in my family do up each & every holiday with love & sparkle. To me those two words have almost become synonymous.

Wishing you blessings, bunnies, & beauty. Happy Easter. Happy Passover. Happy Spring.

If you have to cry...........

I loved Kelly Cutrone on The City, so I continued watching her on her new Bravo TV show Kell On Earth. I like Kelly because she is a straight-shooter & a devoted momma. The book is pitched as a how-to for young women. It didn't read like that though. It was an effective autobiography. It is Kelly's path. For her to say anyone else should use it as a blueprint is a contradiction of her trail blazing mantra.

MAD for Alice

Updating this.... this requires fashion GENIUS! I am so impressed with the costuming of this movie. It has to win an Academy Award next year. (I called Marie Antoinette's Oscar for costume design. I hope I've called this one as well.)

What girl wouldn't want her own suit of armour? Just the need for one shows you that Alice is going to be her own hero in this film. Girl power - how Posh!

On Saturday night on of my best friends & I ventured down the rabbit hole with Mr. Burton & Mr. Depp & Ms. Atwood. Colleen Atwood the film's costume designer. What a fashion-fest this movie was, even the animated characters were decked out by Ms. Atwood. There is a striped dress Alice wears as "Um" in the Red Queen's castle that I just LOVED. It was so Vivienne Westwood, almost a punk princess fairytale moment. So fun. The film is gorgeous & we did see it in 3D. (I kept forgetting & wanting to take the glasses off.)

There were some slow parts, but Johnny Depp would pull you right back in. There were a few slightly macabre parts, so I wouldn't suggest for small/sensitive kids. It's a must-see if you have a middle school-aged girl because it is a female champion, which is so rare. Burton must have made this for his 2 year old, Nell, to see some day when she's a tween & a clique or a boy threatens to define her.

You know this isn't a movie review though! See it with a friend. See it for THE CLOTHES!

Oscar Dress Faves

Carey Mulligan was my favorite. So young & fresh. Love the shoes. I could never pull off short hair like that, she looks adorable. Fabulous movie too btw.
Chanel + Mom of Twins = Fabulous!

Father/Daughter Fantastic. Rock & Roll royalty. I remember when her mom's pregnancy rocked The Cosby show. Now she's all grown-up & stunning. How sweets & special that he brings her. Love it.

Marchesa makes dreamy gowns. This is romantic & lovely.

Bands & Bows

Keeping the hair out of my eyes isn't just a fashion statement, it is a necessity for a busy Momma. A go to quick look is a headband & I love mine! This is my fave site: France Luxe I cannot get enough of their beautiful bands!
