Thursday Purseday

Do you remember once upon a time when I said "I hate that new line of Coach takes away from the classic vision that is Coach"?? Yeah, neither do I.

Just a few days ago though I fawned over this bag at work. Most women that come into my work carry Coach but this one caught my eye. Ladies, this is the only exception for me in the Poppy line of Coach.

I immediately thought of that song which made me think...wait, I don't like paramore so much. Then I remembered there's a Glee version. Oh make things so much better. Anyway...

Here she is:

you are the only exception, doodle glam

It's fun, right? I don't think I'd feel like I was carrying around a purse meant for a 12 year old. Why can't all of the Poppy collection be this fun but aimed at the modern woman...not the tween?

Thursday Purseday: Color and the Unexpected

I really like color...and unexpected things, apparently. Which is why I think Gwen and Marc are the perfect candidates for this post.

hey Gwen...let's be friends

same bag, different price!

a little over the top but it's called jennifer :)

That Marc Jacobs bag is a bit much, I know but it's seriously one of the only times I've actually liked my name. What do you think of it?

Tuesday Shoesday: Flats

I'm a pretty short girl (5'4) so I used to live in heels. After a while, I needed to stop hurting my feet almost everyday so I was wearing my black chucks I just recently hopped on the flats train and these shoes could definitely added to my collection.

these are needed, not wanted

wanna stand out?

chic and fun!

I don't know about you, but I'm seriously trying to figure out a way to make all of these shoes mine. (Christmas is coming though...) :)

Suits for the bridal party!

We found the suits for the boys (best man, groomsman and bro of honor) this weekend. I am so excited!!! Originally I had planned on a darker grey for all of the boys but when we saw this and my brother put on the coat...I knew we had to have it.

so sharp

So, my inspiration for the groom?

mmm, so gorgeous

a darker option

Richard wants to stand out from the party and I think it's a good idea. I'm a little nervous about going a completely different shade of grey but we will see. I'm sure whatever we pick will definitely be awesome. I really want to show off his personality and style.

See, tuxedo lady? Suits are freakin' hot.

Tuesday Shoesday

Secretly, we've all had a moment that we've wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw. Who wouldn't want to raid her closet full of beautiful clothes...and shoes?! I'm not sure she would have all of these listed but I do know she'd appreciate all of their beauty. :)

sequined flats

these shoes are sure to get tons of compliments

Definitely want to go shoe shopping now.

Thursday Purseday: Kate Spade

It's Thursday ladies which means there are purses galore! :) Sounds like a good day, doesn't it??

pretty metallic...thank you Kate

reminds me of winter

sequins+bows= love

I'm not usually a fan of Kate Spade. I haven't followed her fashion line much at all but these bags may have made me a fan. What do you think? Do you like??

Wedding Rings

Last night we went to see The Lion King at the Cadillac Palace. It was so amazing. I have seen it before, but it's been years. Make fun all you want but it's always been one of my favorite movies. I will admit that when I was younger, I was absolutely obsessed with it because at the time I was convinced that I was going to marry Jonathan Taylor Thomas. (Come on, you know you only watched Home Improvement for JTT too.) Now that I'm all grown up, I'm still a Disney girl. The music is one of the most moving in all of the movies. Now in my adult life, I find the person I'm going to spend the rest of my life with. Luckily, he was obsessed with the Lion King too. Thankfully, JTT had no power over him but the music did. It was a fun thing to share together. It also makes me very excited to see the Lion King show in Animal Kingdom in December.

So, moving on to what this post is really about. Wedding bands. As you know, we have found Richard's on etsy.

you just couldn't find this in a store

Just a little background...Richard's favorite animal has always been beavers. He likes how hard working they are. They always need something to do and it's just their life's purpose to work. I just think they're cute. :) So imagine my delight when I found a ring that looks like it's been gnawed by a beaver! I didn't think he'd want it but he was very excited so we are in the process of ordering it. Thanks, Etsy!

Now my ring... :) I've been searching all over the internets, trying to find that one ring that jumped out at me like my engagement ring does. I knew I wanted diamonds on the band but I wanted color too. There have been a few but they were outside the budget. So we went to the jeweler where he bought my engagement ring. They pulled out tons of rings for me to look at and try on at will. That's dangerous, people. It came down to 3 for me. Sapphires, rubies or a green gemstone. Here's what I chose:

do you like our cookie jar?

I chose the rubies, obvs. It's beautiful, unique and fun. I get to wear it in almost 5 months when I say I do to the wonderful RP. :) I'm excited!!
