Finally Halloween is here! We have been counting down the days for over a month! This is what having Frozen on your brain will do to you. I feel like Halloween was not such a big deal when I was a kid, but then again I grew up in a different country. I must admit that this time around I'm also excited the day is finally here. We do have a fun evening planned filled with trick-or-treating with friends and my girlfriends and I are playing hooky in the middle of the day to watch The Best of Me. Have you seen it yet? Please tell me it's good.

Where to start with today's pretty selections! I am so in love with this lips print! So fun and colorful. If I had not just bought a few pieces for my One Room Challenge that print would be in my shopping cart as we speak. My next favorite thing are the purple flats! There is something so chic and elegant in a pointy flat. It makes your feet look so elegant and kind of regal. And these sneakers are what I'm asking my husband to get me for my birthday! So cute!
Will you believe me if I told you my closet is done!! Well it is, and I could not be more in love with it. But, since I can't show you it quite yet I will be sharing with you some accessories I used. If you are new and don't know what the One Room Challenge is it was started by Linda from Calling it Home some years ago. In this challenge she lines up twenty talented interior designers and professional bloggers to redo a room in their home in just six weeks- we update you once a week on Wednesdays. And today is Wednesday! (in case you missed them here are this round's previous posts- one, two, three, four).
To refresh your memory I am doing my walk-in closet. Today I will be sharing with you all some of the fun accessories (pictured above) I used to make this space the little escape I needed.
I have quite a few baby showers coming up. I can think of four off the top of my head!! Yikes! So, the search is on for that perfect baby gift. I am fine getting my friends something from their registry. Something that is practical and maybe even necessary. But what I really love getting them is something fun and different that they love and would not necessarily buy for themselves. Enter Tamar Mogendorff's whimsical fabric creature creations. These delicate little creatures are hand-made in Brooklyn, NY. I first spotted these beauties at a local store here in Dallas called Cabana (one of my mom's and my's most favorite spots to find chic easy pieces on trend). Then, on a trip to NYC's ABC home and carpet I saw more of these creations. I was hooked, but never really remembered the artist's name. It took a while and some investigating, but finally I found Tamar Mogendorff's online shop with the prettiest little treasures for a baby's room, or for yourself. I mean, they are that cute!
Since I'm kind of obsessed with everything fringe lately I fell in love with this fringe skirt image above. It just so happens to be a highly coveted fringe skirt by Tamara Mellon whose beach house I have been admiring for the last few weeks since I spotted it in Elle Decor. Her home is beautiful and so are her fashion designs. You may remember her as the 27 year-old who partnered with Jimmy Choo some years ago. She has since founded her own fashion line and her designs are spectacular. Let's take a little peek at both her interior design style and her fashion line-
Halloween is right around the corner. I had not really realized it until today when I drove down an area I don't usually frequent and the amount of Halloween inflatables decorating the front yards was incredible. I'm talking about 3 or 4 per yard! Little Miss A is just so excited. Her sweet aunt gave her the Elsa (from Frozen) costume and boy is she excited. This is a very coveted costume among this age group so we are lucky to have one! Are you all ready for Halloween? A few fun links to leave you with-
Just a few simple yet beautiful luxuries for you today. Nothing over the top, well maybe one thing- the fabulous shrug! I'm short on words today so here is everything-
