For the one with deep pockets.... I love this

Try sequins AND feathers!

This is more along the lines of what I'll be wearing - minus the socks and heels and add some flats or boots

Houston: Paper City Pop Up Shop


If you are going to be in Houston anytime before Christmas you should head over to Tootsies in Highland Village to check out (among many other lovely things in the store) the Paper City Pop Up book store. They have so many fun design, style and art coffee table books - not to mention a table of really neat vintage and limited edition copies. 

Have a great weekend!

Extra 20% off!

Even though most people will tell you tis not the season to be shopping for yourself, I am going to go ahead and say that when Shopbop is having an EXTRA 20% off the 50 and 70% off sale items it's perfectly acceptable to pick up something for yourself. Especially when these duds are still available...
