Atelier Cologne

 Every now and then, packaging sells me on perfume before I even have a chance to smell it.

Saw this image and immediately started seeking an oversized clutch. 
Or any clutch at all by Clare Vivier.

Vintage Now: Part II

A few more photos from my trip to Vintage Now. It's rare that I do two posts on one place but I have about a hundred photos and favorite goodies from this place so I just have to share more.

And finally,  one of my favorite finds there- this florida tablecoth. 
Perfect for a summer picnic,  or a day at the beach.
If you spotted anything you love in this post of the last, feel free to give Kerri a ring and ask about it.
( Showroom is by appt only and worth it. )

what to wear

other things to add to this look:
her glasses, these earrings, this bag...

boots, sweater, ring, hair

When it's icy and cold out, it's easy to push style aside. I am vowing to be prepared for the cold weather this year, so I'm picking up some cute booties that are both stylish and practical for the fall and winter. Nine West has tons of options- here are my favorites. (at a price you can't beat)

Monday Makeup inspiration

Love the doll-like lashes in this photo. I hope I have inspired everyone to 
overdose on mascara this week.

What to you buy when it comes to mascara?
Are you a spend or splurge type of girl?

gryson favorites

I was introduced to Gryson this past year and like all four of these so much, 
I can hardly decide which to buy to myself...

Leaning toward the top left b/c the gold detailing is so "me".
(bags in upper left and lower right are part of the Olivia Harris line)

Also, I want to thank Patricia, Megan and Lindsay for their help this week. 
I am proud to see our little blog grow and so appreciate of everything you do.
Stay tuned to see the office step by step next week! Eep- I hope you like it.

Vintage Now

Recently, I took a trip to Vintage Now in Norristown, PA. This showroom is by appointment only, but if you are in town- this is a must visit. Here are some photos from my visit...more to come.
You can see Kerri & Amy in current issue of Philadelphia Style, 
and in the October issue of Martha Stewart Living. 
Here is the great news- they are having an Autumn Open House, Friday September 30th, 6:00-9:00.  Live bluegrass music, seasonal bites and sips! See you there?

An ex of mine used to refer to me as "overdressed". Needless to say- that relationship didn't work out.
I guess it makes sense that all of these years later I find myself shopping wedding sites browsing though "dress shoes" for what I consider "everyday shoes". Here are a few that I love from bhldn- and while you might wear them to a wedding, I will be wearing them with my early fall wardrobe.

Other wedding shops I like to shop for everyday items?
Jcrew Weddings & Parties for amazing earrings
Shop Bando bridal for flowers to add to my winter coat

Monday Makeup inspiration

I love a smokey eye...

But for some reason I think it looks even better backstage.

Specifically seeking exceptional taste

I always say you can do anything at all with amazing personal style. So, if you caught last weeks post, and you are in need of an internship (or you just really love searching for amazing products) ,
it's time to send over some info. While living nearby is a bonus, it's not necessary for this one. 
Happy to announce this internship is virtual! 

For more info email Subject: internship.

Double check that your school would be open to something like this, and then email away. 
The most important requirement is that you have amazing style.  "I-try-really-hard style" is 
not for this blog. Specifically seeking exceptional taste.
(this time around: a simple and stylish graphic designer, 
someone with flawless taste in baby /kids products, 
marketing/client relations, blog manager)

This is pretty much the prettiest photo I saw this week.

 I am fortunate  that I work for myself , and once a week 
I can take myself to my favorite cafe for a breather...
 ...and a latte.

Monday Makeup inspiration

I have ever worn cream eyeshadow. But now I'd like to give it a shot...
and I'm thinking metallic shades could be nice. What about you? Have you tried it?
What are your favorite shades/brands?

In my transition from summer to fall, I have found myself buying alot of tweed.
What have you been splurging on for the fall?

Giveaway- from None E Rose and Dallas Shaw

For the past few months I have had the privilege of having some super stylish women contribute to the blog. One of those was Rachel, of None E Rose. She is not only stylish- but talented too.  Today, Rachel has offered to give readers a chance to win the Amelia Airplane Belt from her collection.

I wanted to share just a few more photos (by Bryan Coppede) b/c I loved the way Liz Teich styled it.

Hair and Makeup by Brett Jackson

Check out None E rose here, and leave a little love for Rachel below.
(As always an extra entry for tweeting about the blog. I would love to share the space 
with as many people as possible and your tweets help.)
