Marbled Marvel

This weekend I went to my cousin’s wedding.  The gorgeous couple was complimented by an equally beautiful day.

Weddings always put me in a great mood… They are the perfect excuse to get a little fancy while celebrating one of life’s greatest privileges – love.

Below is a versatile outfit perfect for any special occasion, work or dinner date…

Black Cat, Cross My Path

I have always wondered where the black cat’s bad rep came from and the more I hang out with Mimi and Sister (my good friend Sarah’s friendly black kitties) the more I write off these superstitions as nothing but an old wives tale.

Mimi and Sister compliment Sarah’s interior decorating to a tee.  As always, I’m captivated by their visual harmony with Sarah’s light blue, black, white and natural wood color story.  A neutral graphic rug in sky blue and white serves as a perfect back drop to the kitties’ silky black fur. Green piercing eyes add that small interesting detail to this pleasing color blocking technique.

Below I’ve created a transitional Spring outfit perfect for work or a dinner date in the same color story inspired by Sarah’s interiors and her kitties… complete with small bright green detail.

Cure to chronic headaches caused by “Mal Occhia” or “evil eye” – 1 cup holy water, 1 drop olive oil.  If oil spreads – mal occhia manifests.  If oil is contained – take a Tylonol and Mommy-in-law takes care.

Disney vs. Louboutin

We all know Disney portrays some fierce females.  Good or evil, these fabulous gals have their own recognizable style.  Tonight, during my nightly internet browse, I came across three color stories of Christian Louboutin…  Let’s be honest with ourselves – if Disney royalty was real, they would definitely be rocking red bottoms.
