Daily Covet: Never thought I’d want a sectional

Bon nuit bloggy friends.  Sorry I’ve been MIA today, but have had much paying work to get done.

Hopefully, you missed the daily covet!

I was shopping a furniture sale with a friend this weekend, who is buying a new house.  We hit up a liquidation sale at Mrs. B’s, the sister store (and where really great furniture goes to be discounted or to die) to Nebraska Furniture Mart, one of the country’s largest furniture stores if I’m not mistaken.  For so long, I have rejected the idea of a sectional.  That is, until I moved into my house with a very narrow and long family room in the basement.

It’s the perfect place for a lovely sectional that is comfortable and provides a lot of seating for things like football games and movie nights.  With that said, I found this amazing, designer sofa marked down from $3900 to $1199!  While it lacks an impressive quality in the picture, I can assure you the Danish linen upholstery and nailhead trim is nothing short of beautiful… minus the ugly throw pillows.

It’s so pretty in fact, that I now want it for my living room instead, which is the long, narrow room directly above my family room.  Now if I could just convince my husband we NEED it, when we have a perfectly good sofa already.  Sigh….

Daily Covet: Nautical Stripes and Bold Jack Purcell Sneakers

Knit dresses with stripes and bold Jack Purcell sneakers are a great summer uniform.

You can look put together, fashion forward and a little classic all at the same time.  And what’s better, your feet won’t hurt after a long day of museum hopping, running errands or lunching with the ladies.

Add a straw bag or a nylon cross-body bag, and your look is complete!

Daily Covet: Trina Turk for Banana Republic swirl tunic dress

A Trina Turk tunic dress.  That just says summer, oversized sunnies and maybe even lunch in L.A. to me.

And since orange and pink is one of my most favorite color combinations (Don’t believe me? See here!), this tunic dress immediately caught my eye.

Shopping, lunching, not wanting to wear your little black sweats the 5th day in a row… just sayin’… this tunic dress has it all!  And it has a lightweight, cotton construction for comfort with a silk blend that will dress it up a smidge.

Daily Covet: Sexy animal prints skirts…Meeeeoooowwww!

Animal prints plus sexy pencil skirts.  What better combination.

Throw a pencil skirt on with a fitted denim shirt or a cashmere twinset, and you’ve got sophistication all wrapped up.

It’s no secret that I adore virtually anything J.Crew, and this “Safari Cat” No. 2 pencil skirt is no exception.

And score… it’s 30% off today!

Style Sleuth: Black Lace & Back East

One morning I met a mom and her children at the same preschool my son attends.  She had done some guest posts for a Mother’s Social Networking site that I write for regularly.  We hit it off instantly, and I ran home to send her a link to something via Facebook.  She saw the udpates I made to Littleblacksweats.com and immediately put me on the hunt for a sophisticated dress she could wear to a wedding back East.

It took me all of five seconds to conjure up the perfect dress (I had actually tried it on in Chicago that fall.)  She ordered it and loved how it fit.

Mission accomplished.  And how classic, elegant and demurely sexy is this little number?
