Oscar de la Renta for the Holidays

I want these for the holiday season. These are two of the reasons I am a huge Oscar de la Renta fan.

Leopard Boot

I am in love with this boot. I found this on le fashion image. I don't know who it's by, but I love it. I have been believing for a pair of leopard pumps. I think I'm going to add a pair of leopard booties to that request as well. Leopard is sort of like the new black...it goes with everything.

Trying Something New

I'm trying out this new template...however, I'm not sure I'm keeping it. I welcome feedback.

Italian Deck

The writer in me pictures me here stretched out on a chaise with a cashmere wrap, an espresso, a brownie and my computer, writing. The romantic in me, pictures me on a chaise wrapped in my husband's arms (speaking in faith) enjoying the beautiful Italian evening with the sounds of soft jazz framing the evening.

Fantasy Work Space

I think I have always been searching for the perfect home office...and I've yet to find it. Well that's not exactly true. I have a great Parson's style desk with drawers I found at an antique store for $25.oo. I painted it black and it used to be the check out desk in my store. Then when I moved stores, it became my home work space. Unfortunately, it also serves as my night table as well.

Every time I see a beautiful desk in a bedroom, I dream of my space looking like that...spending hours there writing. Funny thing is, as much as I would like that, I do most of my writing on my laptop in bed or a desk in the family room. Maybe that's one of the things I should put on my goal list for 2012...a better home work space.

In the mean time, I'll continue dreaming about the possibilities.

Ian Hylton

I found this handsome gentleman on a new favorite blog, The Sartorialist. His name is Ian Hylton. He's a designer and one of the best dressed men I've seen in a while that wasn't in a magazine or a movie screen. Love the look from head to toe.
