Gilt Groupe!


Recently, the internet has been inundated with these timed sample sales (Gilt Groupe, Ruelala, Hautelook, etc) but of them all, the original Gilt Groupe is by far, superior. They are all invite only shopping sites that sell luxury brands for up to 70% off retail! Once you become a member, they will email daily to let you know of the upcoming sales. Amazing designers like Rachel Roy, Phillip Lim, Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Taylor all at crazy discounts!

Just last week, I received my new Gilt-y (had to go there!) pleasure: Walter high waisted shorts for $28!!!

Best Candle Ever!

Capri Blue Volcano Candle
$28, Anthropologie

I was never a big candle person until I got a whiff of this one. It is divine! I always have at least 3 or 4 dispersed around my home, ensuring that each room is smelling it’s very best no matter what I made for dinner.

Colin Cowie once said that scented candles make great gifts and to just have a bunch already beautifully wrapped so you can just grab and go when you’re in need of a quick gift. I took what he said to heart and have given this as a gift numerous times. Thanks Colin!

Next to each of my Capri Blue Volcano’s, I have these gorgeous peacock matchboxes from The White Attic. The White Attic is a fantastic store in Bucktown & Andersonville that has refinished vintage furniture. Their pieces are so unique and beautifully done. They look brand new, except with a ton of character! These matchboxes look a lot better than the random restaurant matchbooks I used to use.

I know it’s a bit pricier than the average candle but it lasts a long time and it smells that good.

Enjoy the weekend ya’ll!

Welcome Home Balenciaga!

I finally decided on a new handbag! Introducing…

Balenciaga Giant Part Time in Officier

There’s so much to love about this bag: the color, the giant hardware, the incredibly soft lambskin…I could go on and on. It’s pretty roomy so I can fit all the baby stuff in, it has shorter handles and a longer strap and best of all, I can hang it on my stroller!

They say that women are either bag hags or shoe whores…guess which I am?

Baby A seems to approve as well! :)
