I haven’t been to a wedding in 3 months. It’s a record. But in a week I get to go to my dear friend E’s wedding at a ski resort in Maryland, and I could not be more excited, and I cannot wait to share everything about it with you all so soon!

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite guest dresses out in stores now. Most of you know I’m not a bag whore kind of girl. No, no. I take my temptations in the form of shoes, (lots and lots of shoes) dresses and coats. It’s bad. By the way… sometimes you can get really amazing dresses that won’t make you shell out you’re entire paycheck, which… is amazing. And sometimes, you have to just suck it up, spend the money and promise yourself to wear it more than once. Enjoy!

It’s happening already. The city has become “Christmafied” already. My colleagues are listening to Christmas music, it’s on in the stores, little white twinkle lights are dotting the trees on Park Avenue, and the Rockettes have already set up show at Radio City. Christmas is coming… earlier and earlier it seems.

Not that I’m complaining. I love the holidays. I love the sparkle of the holidays. And lately I’ve been into statement making accessories, so today, I bring you  statement making accessories with a whole lot of sparkle.  Necklaces, amazing little clutches, big earrings, bangle bracelets- good accessories can make an outfit. A beautiful dress in a classic cut and color makes a much bigger statement with the right accessories. But… I caution you, as with most things… everything in moderation. Follow the advice of Coco Chanel, and right before you’re about to leave, take something off.

Maybe it’s that’ I just re-watched 500 Days of Summer and fell in love with it (and Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe) all over again, but I’m loving vintage these days. Mixing it with contemporary pieces… I just love it. Plus it doesn’t hurt that I love just about everything from every era gone by. (Except maybe the 80’s. I lived through that the first time and somehow it’s just not as fun the second time around. Anyway, I’ve been inspired and I’ve been browsing Etsy, where else, for some seriously amazing pieces that I need to have. I bought a beautiful pair of vintage earrings from Belle’s Booty yesterday. See below. Side note- She’s awesome, and her stuff is great!
