HOW DO YOU SHOPSTYLE

http://bit.ly/psssjgame

Is there a method to the madness when you make shopping decisions? There is for me! For instance, if I can't imagine myself wearing rightnow, I won't buy it. Sale or no sale. Plus if I'm not willing to  brown bag lunch it for a few days for a specific purchase, then it's definitely not going home with me.

So when I took this fun quiz on ShopStyle.com, their assessment of my savvy spending pattern was pretty dead on. Plus, I was automatically entered to win a designer handbag! And you can get in on the fun too!

Want to see what they say about your shopping predilections? Head on over to the site to play: http://bit.ly/psssjgame, and then, leave a comment for me below with your assessment!

GLITZY HOLIDAY

Glitzy Holiday






Can I tell you how I want every single item above? I love a good bit of glitz. I've said a'many a times on this blog how I think I was born in the wrong era. The 70s would've suited me quite fine with all its over-the-top indulgence!

But back to this list.

Amongst the things I'm coveting, I'm pleased to say that I've already made a few of them happen. Tickets to see Jay Z in two weeks here in Atlanta for the Magna Carter World Tour? Done...courtesy of The Mr. (thanks hon!). And the new compilation album Saint Heron has stayed in constant rotation ever since adding it to spotify last week. The songs are super chill. It's what my friend Andi refers to as "a wine album." Still working on the other 12 items..especially those Valentino booties. DIE!

If you've got a glitzy friend on your holiday list, see credits for these items over on Polyvore and get your shop on!

KATE SPADE THINGS WE LOVE

You might remember me mentioning how one of the many things on my holiday list this year are coffee table books. (If not, click here!)

Well imagine my delight when I stumbled upon the BEYOOOTIFUL Kate Spade 10th Anniversary Things We Love book smack dab in the home goods section at TJ Maxx.

 I literally stopped me dead in my tracks when I saw it.

I guess that's one thing I can take off the list. For now.

{12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS} DAY 7: SUGAR PAPER STATIONERY


Staying organized in 2014 is at the top of my list of new years resolutions. And thanks to this stylish stationery from the team at Sugar Paper, I can look good while doing so. 

This LA-based design duo recently launched a collection with Target, chock full of adorable desk and wall calendars, spiral notebooks and monthly planners, ranging in price from $5-$15.

 Not to get all girly on you, but this set of pink paper goods totally rings my bell. The collection is available for a limited time only (8 weeks) so be sure to check your local Target for the line!

{12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS} DAY 6: L'WREN SCOTT LIP PRINT PAJAMAS

Banana Republic L'Wren Scott Pajamas | BananaRepublic.com

I'm having a pajamas moment right now. There's nothing better than coming home after a long day at work and cuddling up on the coach in your favorite pair of PJs. And this cute lip print set by designer (and rock star wife) L'Wren Scott for her collection with Banana Republic are definitely worth the price tag. And apparently, they're pretty popular, as they're SOLD OUT online and in most stores. 

Here's hoping Santa grabbed my pair before it was too late.

{12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS} DAY 5: ONE KINGS LANE GIFT CARD


Happy Friday, y'all! It's Day 5 of our 12 Days of Christmas, and I'm setting my sights on great home goods found over at One Kings Lane.

Oh, so you haven't heard of One Kings Lane? It's probably the most amazing online shop for luxury items for the home, and unique vintage wares, all at factions of the cost of what you'd pay in store. My OKL list of buys is growing by the minute, and I'm hoping Santa will put in on my next shopping spree on the site. Here are some of the items languishing in my shopping cart:

Gold Zebra Pillow
Brass Tray Table
Nailhead Ottoman
Luxe and lovely!

{12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS} DAY 4: FASHION COFFEE TABLE BOOKS


I'm dying to dress up my townhouse with style-inspired coffee table books. Who doesn't love pages upon pages of fashion sketches and high art photography to adorn a bookshelf or ottoman? I mean, really?

I've asked the multiple Santas in my life to gift me a few titles, including:

Yves Saint Laurent Style

The Ellements of Personal Style
Chanel: The Vocabulary of Style

I think that's a good starting off point, don't you agree? What coffee table books do you own (or secretly coveting)? Leave a comment for me below!

{12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS} DAY 3: BLUEPRINT JUICES


BluePrint Juices | blueprintjuice.com
I'm taking a proactive approach to health in the new year. Less processed foods. More raw veggies. And plenty bottles of these babies.

While juicing every morning is ideal, it's not always an option for busy working girls like me. So I'm hoping my super sweet sissy will invest in buy me a few bottles of the BluePrint Juices. The ingredients are all natural and sound amazing (like, my mouth is watering as I type). Plus, I can throw them in my purse and drink on my way into the office, in between appointments with clients, and days where I'm just too lazy to chew (trust me, it happens).

You can find BluePrint Juices and BluePrint Cleanses at your local Whole Foods Market

Cheers!
