Calling all Brides!

If you on the search for "the dress" or just in the market to buy a beautiful gown, you need to see the collaboration that Vera Wang did with David's Bridal. That's right, David's Bridal! Never thought I would find something there that I love.

The White by Vera Wang dresses are reminiscent of her upscale bridal salon dresses. Prices range from $600 to $1,400-considerable less than the high end versions. Don't miss the accessories included in the line. I have my eye on the headbands with crystal embellishments. The line goes on sale February 11th and I would be willing to bet it won't last long. Get it while you can!

Check out the entire collection and where to buy it here.

NYC as a rosegarden

Artist, Will Ryman is pushing up roses in NYC! Giant roses are now on display on Park Avenue until May 31st. There are 38 red and pink roses and 20 rose petals (6 of which double as lawn chairs). Beautiful! It's got me dreaming of Spring!

“With these roses I wanted to do something that was larger than life and site-specific. In my work I always try to combine fantasy with reality. In the case of The Roses, I tried to convey New York City’s larger than life qualities through scale; creating blossoms which are imposing, humorous, and hopefully beautiful,” stated artist Will Ryman.

Details at Ryman's website.

How Chic!

I am in love with I haven't found a more style-inspiring website. It allows you to look though users uploaded photos and vote on outfits you find chic as well as become fans of other users profiles. The add photo to your favorites feature is by far my favorite. Now I can quickly have outfits that inspire me at my virtual fingertips.
Launched in April of 2008, founders Helen Zhu, Corinne Chan and Ricky Ho sought to create a community in which users could finally answer the question “What looks good on you?”

Since then, Chictopia has grown to be the leading online fashion network with over 100,000 registered users and growing. Having been featured in NYLON Magazine as one of the Top 4 Style Sites and named by Women’s Wear Daily one of the sites to watch in 2010, Chictopia is a mecca for inspiration seekers and trendsetters. Chictopia Style Icons have been featured in Glamour, TeenVOGUE, Women’s Wear Daily, The New York Times, and many more.

In my dreams...

Ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamed of having a library of my own. Maybe it came from watching too much Beauty and Beast or spending a few too many hours at the library down the street. All I know (and my husband can attest to it) is that I own more books that I have the space to house them. So until I have a library to call my own, here are some of my favorite photos of ones.


No home library is complete without a ladder.

Not my style but definitely a crazy, cool idea!

The other Olsen sister

I cannot get over how much Elizabeth Olsen looks like her older twin sisters. Hope her fashion sense is just as fantastic!

From Russia, with Love

One of the places I am dying to visit is Russia. There is just something so glamorous about the land of spies, vodka and roulette.

I am in love with these cool, unique Russian inspired pieces.
