I ran across this picture on the web and pinned it to my Style board. I love the mixing of metals and textures. The chains make it look tough, but the rose gold softens it and it looks less biker.
I had a credit to Ideeli that was burning a hole in my online pocket, so I redeemed it and bought this watch. I am a sucker for great accessories and really thought this watch was on trend by incorporating a leather cuff, watch, and tough rose gold chain.
Kind of obsessed with sequined clothing lately. I would love a sequined dress for a fun going out look. I found this one and really like that it is in a more subdued color. I think I'd buy it if it was black instead of dark blue. Since I'm not nearly as small made as the model, I'd be afraid of looking like a disco ball. A more subtle way I have added sequins to my wardrobe is through sweaters. I picked up two clearance sweaters at Banana Republic over the weekend (they were an extra 40% off!) which are sequined. It's not completely glittery, but it has glittery accents. One has sequin shoulder detail in a similar color to the rest of the sweater. The other is even more subtle: it is a medium gray with a dark gray sequin stripe. Love them both and can't wait to wear them!
I've been thinking about getting moccasins lately. Not a typical fall/winter shoe, but they look so comfy. I would buy them in an unusual color like this mint green. Here's a more traditional colored pair if mint green isn't your style.

- My kid sister (who isn't really a kid anymore) recently bought a domain and started a blog. Yes, she does copy just about everything that I do. She's been doing that for a while. She's one of my favorite people in the world and I hold her opinions on a much higher level than just about anyone else's. She's a straight talker, no bullshit, shoot first ask questions later kind of person. Anyway, she started a blog about beauty and fashion. Check out Glitter and Vodka
- This video has been making its rounds on my Twitter feed and Facebook all day, so I watched it when I got home. Holy crap it's funny. Why Jimmy Kimmel is an evil genius.
- Great article on why seeing moms NIP is so important. Here's my favorite snippet: "In short, we have edited out public view of so much natural human behavior that we're really left now with a distorted view of how babies should be born and cared for."
- My favorite article I've read this week is on the depiction of breastfeeding on TV and in movies. There are only a instances discussed in the article. What great or awful depiction of breastfeeding have you seen recently?
