HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

links

In honor of fashion week (read: month), why not add some fashion-editor-worthy touches to your home? I love it when One Kings Lane does this sale. I always find the coolest vintage things – like these lucite bookends and a pair of leopard x-benches, for example. There’s also some splurge-worthy extras for the closet, too (a vintage Rolex and a pair of Chanel earrings come to mind).

I’m always hesitant about wearing red lipstick. It’s a bold choice, and I’m always worried that I just can’t pull it off (even a red as good as this one). After taking a look through this list of fellow blondes donning a scarlet lip, I’m feeling a bit more confident to give it a try.

Brussel sprouts are one of those love it or hate it foods. I’m definitely in the former camp. I love them. I can’t get enough of them. If I see brussel sprouts on the menu, it’s pretty much guarenteed that I’m going to order them. What happens when you throw in a juicy apple and a couple of crunchy walnuts?

Nate Berkus has once again nailed it with his Target collection. The newest arrivals are some serious gems: a black-and-gold side tablegeometric additions, and gold accents like these candlesticks and this faceted vase. Did I mention that most of it is under $50? Sure is.

The last couple of days’ weather has been especially gray. It’s reminding me that the only way to brighten up the upcoming fall days is with a colorful coat. I happen to love the chartreuse hue of this one.

Speaking of color, spring is set to be a bright one. You can thank designers like Ralph Lauren for that. The American designer filled his runway with bold, saturated hues (and jewels to match!). Just one, quick look through this collection will put you in a cheery mood.
