♥ that's a wrap!

my due date came and went this saturday, 
without any sign of our baby boy's arrival--
but what did come was my push present of sorts,
a solly baby wrap that i am so excited to use,
some time really really soon,
 i hope :) :)

♥ books & babies.

with parents whose teeny apartment is overrun with books,
our baby boy will have no choice but to be a little reader--
which is why he needs these literary onesies from 
out of print as soon a possible :)

♥ looks & books.

nicks new favorite tv show is louie,
and one of the episodes that we watched together
recently featured actress, parker posey, as an adorably
 quirky book store sales gal, who goes on one date 
with louis ck & makes him try on a dress in a
vintage shop. LOVE it!!!

♥ hustle & flow.

tonight, nick and i began watching american hustle (2013),
and while i knew next to nothing about the film- i was pleasantly
surprised by all of the dvf wrap dresses i recognized amy adams wearing
 throughout the film! OBSESSED!!!!

according to the costume designer, michael wilkinson,
" i love the clean lines of the wrap dress- they really exemplify the new spirit
of the clothes for american women in the late 1970's. it was a time when women
were enjoying new freedoms in fashions-less underpinnings, less structure and
bold, streamlined shapes. the natural shape of a woman's body was celebrated."

♥ 99 problems, but a button down ain't one.

while i personally cannot pull off a button down shirt
(i have a thing called "breasts")-- there is something so compelling to
me about this shirt up! editorial in the latest issue of glamour.

it must be the big statement jewelry. duh!

speaking of which-- did you know that all of the jewelry at
 forever 21 is 30% off this week? now's the time to stock up!

here are some pieces that you could definitely
rock with a button down- (if you don't 
have my kind of problems! ;)

♥ happy spring!

last summer, i ate an unprecedented number of ice cream cones
(i blame my sweet tooth on the baby!) and documented it on instagram
this spring, maybe i will start a little early- and get one of these
  melody eshani rings to match!

i know i've been loving on beyonce lately-
but solange is still my girl. 

her latest feature in harper's bazaar is just fab-
the middle look is obviously my favorite :)

♥ FTS.

spring is but a few days away,
and yet the arctic chill in the air has
made it hard to believe it will ever come.

while i usually live on the pleasant land of winter denial,
i cannot help but feel totally done with the freezing temperatures,
salt-covered everything and the extra layers required just to venture
outside. the only thing that makes me feel slightly optimistic are
these beautiful pictures from my friend, michael of the trendy dwarf.

these new york ladies know how to layer in a creative way-
mixing a bit of fur with a bit of glitter and a bit of color.

if you have to dress for this bullshit weather,
 you may as well make it interesting.

♥ kiss me. i'm not irish.

while i may not be irish, or fully participate in the traditions of st. patrick's day, 
i do love a bit of good luck, and the shamrock is certainly a symbol of that.
 did you know there is one four clover for every ten thousand three-leaved?
that's pretty rare and remarkable! here's a way you can have a bit 
of luck, without all of the hunting that goes along with it ;)

♥ sephora's beauty board.

like any other makeup junkie, i spend alot of time at sephora.
most of the time, it's just to browse the latest products- and other times
i am a woman on a mission with a specific item in mind to buy.

if you are anything like me, you may need a bit of inspiration to
make the leap from browsing to buying-- and that is where sephora's 
latest pinterest- style beauty board comes into play.

here is a place where makeup lovers everywhere
can upload pictures of their favorite products and
share what works and what doesn't.

♥ meltdown.


have you tried any of the lipsticks from melt cosmetics?
ever since i saw stupid love on my favorite makeup blogger, 
keiko lynn, i have needed to order just about
 every color that they offer.

do lipsticks count as a push present?
