Cherries in the Snow red lipstick, keys and a $100 bill."

Since I've been in Southern California I have been reading numerous fashion magazines and have been extremely diligent about getting some shopping in. For some reason these two activities keep stumbling me upon Kate Spade, and I have to say, I am absolutely in love with her Spring 2011 colors. Everything from the advertisements to the window displays, from the bags to the dresses. I am just obsessed. This will be short and sweet, but I wanted to take give you a glimpse of what I've been loving on. Happy Monday!

{Outfit Love} There is a Fur Lining

By Ingrid Belobradic · February 20, 2011

I am currently sitting in a louge chair in the middle of Palm Springs basking in the sun, but yesterday was raining and freezing and I decided that my post today was going to feature some warm weather items seen at Fashion Week. Fur was all over the collections, and it adorned the models in an array of ways. Here is a snapshot of some of the looks. {And I promise tomorrow I'll go back to warm weather posts.}

{Purse Confessions} Inside My Purse

By Ingrid Belobradic · February 18, 2011

"Long ago, I used to marvel at the smallness of the French purse. It not only seemed commensurate in some way with the smallness of French women, but like the scarf it spoke of an exotic capacity to get by in life with just the essentials. I’d grown up with the notion that purses were practical, so mine was usually filled with paraphernalia for chapped lips, chapped hands, unruly fingernails, allergies, parking lot thugs, dark corners, obscure phone calls, cuts and bruises, multiple hair emergencies, bad weather, bad breath, and bad karma.”

~ What French Women Know, Debra Ollivier


My friend Jenna and I are both reading the book "What French Women Know" and found the above passage hilarious about the size of women's bags in the U.S. Today, after travelling to Palm Springs, Jenna picked up my bag and exclaimed how heavy it was! She then gave me the idea that I should do a blog post on the things I find essential to carry around in my purse. So here is a brief overview of what I found in my Car Shoe's black leather bag.

  1. Tom Ford Aviators
  2. Marimekko Umbrella
  3. Gucci Wallet
  4. Burt's Bees Hand Cream
  5. Laura Mercier Cover-Up Pot and Translucent Powder
  6. Contact Solution and Lens Case
  7. Book - Gabriel Garcia Marquez "Memories of My Melancholy Whores"
  8. Canon Digital Camera
  9. iPod Touch
  10.  USB Drive
  11.  Motorola Blue Tooth
  12.  Chanel Lipglosses
