Daily Covet: Underpinnings

Remember how I was discussing the sad state of my underwear drawer in terms of Valentine-wear?  Yeah, well, nothing has changed.  Well one thing has changed, I found another cute set I’d like to own.  Aaaand it’s on sale this time!

How cute is this Tulle cami and brief set from “Only Hearts?”  Yeah.  CUTE!

And since my husband has me on spending freeze, I’m going to share this link with him because he never hesitates to buy this kind of stuff, regardless of price.

Look book from a favorite….

LesPommettes is eye candy for the fashionista.  I love visiting this site a couple times each week because they have such unique pieces, both apparel and accessories.  The jewelry is amazing, and the look book is always inspiring.

Here are a few more laid back looks for summer.  Lace, linen, stripes and girly hemlines are just a few of the fun details I look for in clothing… especially summer clothing! (All images from Lespommettes.com)

Daily Covet: Long and Shorts of it…

The long story is that years ago, I bought this adorable black sequin mini skirt… really before sequins became a wear everyday, everywhere embellishment.  I bought it a size larger than normal because I wanted it to hang a little lower since it was a mini after all, and I was in my early 30’s after all.

Sadly, it ran very small and so it never really fit well.  But I couldn’t part with it.

Fast forward to last week, I tried it on with jet black opague tights and amazing jewelry and Voila!  My Annual Girls’ Night Out Holiday Ornament Exchange outfit.

Until this week, when it’s just days from “that time of the month,” and I feel awful in the outfit that I thought I looked really good in only days ago…. apparently being really excited about an outfit adds 10 lbs.

So the short of it, you ask?  By all means… see below.  I love everything about these, they would still look great with tights, I would actually order the right size (maybe even a back-up size) and I’d be set… if they could be here by 7pm tomorrow (Saturday)!

Annnndddd, if I had $265 to spend on sequined, laced and pearl’d hot pants that I’d probably, in all reality, wear once.

Daily Covet: A Girl’s Best Friend

Everyone has a little black dress, right?  If you are me, then you have like 30, in an array of sizes from 4-12!  And that’s what I mean by “girl’s best friend,” but second in line would be this extravagant Vera Wang “diamond” necklace.

I absolutely cannot bring myself to buy one more dress, but what if I really, really need something fabulous?  This little number can change the look of anything.  And I love the inconsistency of stones and the “over the top” big ones that lend a sort of whimsy to the necklace.  Now – at $900 – I would not wear it enough to justify the price, but some people would… and others would find an amazing knockoff, i.e. me.

Either way, your LBD goes to KYSOLBD (knock your socks off little black dress)!

Daily Covet: Grin & Bare It!

My closet is always a little off.  At times, it seems I have way more fun tops and no bottoms but at this moment, I have plenty of bottoms and you guessed it – no tops!

So after virtually shopping one of my favorite sites, LesPommettes.com, I found this hot little bustier that would be a perfect year-round piece and it has boning inside for extra staying power.

Pair it with skinny jeans or a party skirt, a pencil skirt and a shrunken cardigan or a pair of drapey silk shorts and you have a go-anywhere-after-dark outfit, any day of the year!

And now it’s on sale… so that’s a plus!

Daily Covet: Going to the well…

I know I’m going to the well here but I really am IN LOVE with http://www.lespommettes.com.  They have such an eclectic mix of fashion, jewelry, bags and more that I just can’t help myself.

These rhinestone chandelier earrings are so cool and unfussy.  They are simple enough to turn a designer swim cover-up into an evening-worthy ensemble.  And they are fancy enough to turn the simplest of LBDs into a show stopper.

Pair them with strappy gold sandals and almost anything else and you have the perfect going anywhere outfit!
