inspiration at hermes

























My husband just forwarded these amazing window displays from Hermes! They are my idea of perfect!!! One of my many former creative roles was to develop windows for big box retailers...so I always appreciate a beautiful window!

champagne treats!







































This year..... instead of the traditional bottle of wine...my husband decided to give his co-workers a bottle of champagne to help ring in the new year!!!


.... and yes, his "lovely" wife offered to "pretty" them up with ribbon and gift tags! Can you believe we are less than a week away from the big day?

off to a holiday cocktail party





Last night we went to my husband's office holiday cocktail party! Thought I would share a few photos! I wore a simple little "vintage" dress that I picked up a few months ago for about $20! 


I just love buying vintage and then tweaking the details a bit. This dress needed very minor alterations...I just had the dated "mock turtleneck" detail removed and nipped in the waist a bit (although think it could use a bit more refining in the torso). Not bad for a total of about $35! The dress reminds me of last seasons Prada or Marni a bit!!! Red satin J Crew clutch, gold Kate Spade pumps, wooden bangle, cute husband, and  we were out the door!!!
