Vintage Chic {but brand new}

My friend Laurin showed me this fabulous necklace yesterday and I knew that you would all love it too - the good folks in the BR accessories department have done it again! The brooch cluster necklace is lovely and well-priced, in my opinon, when you factor in all of the pieces...

For you DIY gals out there, you might be able to approximate the vibe with a piece of ribbon and some fabulous brooches...

Fall at Anthro

I really need to take a trip to Toronto to check out the Anthropologie stores they just opened - when the fall catalogue came today I spent about half an hour sitting on the porch forcing my mom to "look at this, isn't it pretty???!!!"

Personal faves include the puckered and pleated cardi, the havana sweatercoat, the revelations skirt, the sideswept sweater dress and the Barbera heels. Swoon. Plus all of the pictures were shot in NYC, London and Paris, making me want to travel so badly...


I have a feeling that this fall will be all about sweatercoats, comfy skirts and walkable shoes for me, since I will be off spending my days with the little man. These bridge that gap very nicely.

Mirror, Mirror

I was at Pier 1 of all places yesterday, and happened to spot this wonderful vanity table - thanks to cousin Tara for the tip about their lovely mirrored pieces!

This vanity would be perfect in any fabulous girl's boudoir...

Milo update

Since our wee Emile is now over three months and is no longer so wee, I've posted some new pics on facebook - I've made them public so that you can access them here...

Trying to get back to posting, and not of bebe, but it's hard not to think of him when he looks like this - that Marc by Marc Jacobs shirt I'm wearing is my favourite of the summer...

Perfect Evening

We just had one of those amazing evenings - we hit our local park for some wonderful acting in Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing performed by local actors A Company of Fools. It was funny and entertaining and well acted, and we just sat on a blanket and played with Milo {who was awesome except for at the very end} and ate some really good chips and drank some nice red wine and enjoyed a rare beautiful summer evening...

Total bliss.
