Friday Faves

1. THIS absolutely perfect jacket (found here):

Fall’s knocking on our door, people.  And this BLANK NYC jacket, with its zip front, draped neckline and ribbed sleeve panels make it fashion-forward without a too-hefty price. Perfect to bundle up in in early Fall.

2. THESE Acrylic Diamond Goblets (found here):

They may look like glass, but these Maison Midi gem-colored glasses are made of acrylic and are super durable.  And just $4.95 each! Use them to dine al fresco this summer, or put down your Valley of the Dolls-type “candies” (you gotta read the book) and use these instead as your little wintertime pick-me-ups.

3. THESE super cute and super cheap cabinet knobs (found here):


Soooo I’ve been living under a rock and only recent discovered World Market, where they have these charming knobs for a fraction of the price of the ones found at other home decor stores.  Put a fresh slab of paint on some dressers, twist these puppies in and call it a day!

4. THIS adorable summer get-up (found here):

I randomly came across this summer outfit on Pinterest and fell in love with it.  Then I tracked down the store in Auburn, Alabama – Ellie Boutique – and equally fell in love with the Southern sweetness of the people who work here.  ANYwho, the lace detail and design of the shorts, the beading on the bank of the tank top… I love it all.

5. THESE earrings (found here and here).


(Left): Not only are they vibrant, but each one is made by a fair trade artisan group in India that creates avenues of employment for the economically disadvantaged. (Right): These are, uh, just, uh, pretty and cheap.  Hee hee.

5. THIS dope mash-up.

‘Cause Ginuwine’s been MIA for too long.  And because this song mashes up up the quintessential high school Spring Break masterpiece that takes me back to Bradenton, FL in March ’97.

Have a great weekend everyone.  Steph and I are actually meeting up in NY this weekend for a bachelorette bash.  GIDDY UP!!!

And PS – Be sure to check out our next post for the Rent the Runway blog on Monday!
