My Take - Burberry Spring 2011

I loved this look from Burberry's Spring 2011 show, I love the color combination of the green top, grey pants and the turquoise clutch.  So much fun! 

I wish that I could have pulled a tunic in that exact color, but sadly I couldn't find one.  I tried to get as close as possible.  Go out and grab something in a fresh, Spring green and pair it with a pop of turquoise!  Here are two takes on this look.

The 30 for 30 is over?

If it's Wednesday, it must be outfit post day.  It's been slim pickings around here, with my girl's illness and various house projects I've been working on, I've been keeping it very casual, comfortable and washable.  But when I have dressed like a person not going to the gym, I've been revisiting my 30 for 30 items.  I just go to them again and again.  I guess that means I picked well or I have hardly any clothes in my closet.  My closet is bare bones people and will not be replenished in any way until I transition back into the working world so basically my whole life is one big 30 for 30 - ha!  (Hey, Kendi when is the Spring challenge? 'Cause I'm in!)  Anyway, here are a couple of outfits I wore in the past week.  Enjoy!
Wow, what am I doing with my face here?

Top - Gap
Cardigan - Old Navy
Jeans - Old Navy
Shoes - Toms

Top - Charlotte Russe*
Pants - J.Crew
Tank - Target
Shoes - Target
Necklace - gift

*I've struggled with this top - it doesn't feel like "me".  I don't think it's flattering, what do you all think?  Keep or toss?

My Five - Gucci Fall 2011

Outstanding collection full of great color and color combinations, and the accessories, don't get me started - beyond gorgeous!  There were a lot of bold and bright python/python prints in this collection (just like at Prada).  I was wondering if Frida Giannini called up Miuccia Prada and had a convo about sourcing them together for a bulk discount?  Can you imagine?  (cue the fantasy music)

FG - Hi Miu, how's it going?  I was just sitting here talking to my BFF James Franco about "General Hospital" and it hit me - the Fall 2011 line should be all about python!  Not just any python, but brightly colored python.  What do you think?
MP - Obviously.
FG - Are you planning on using python for Fall?
MP - Obviously.
FG - We should totally go in together and buy it by the truckload.  I mean it's got to come to Italy anyway, right?
MP - Obviously.
FG - It's on then, I'll have my design staff contact your design staff.  Ciao!
MP - I've got to go buy some art.

I'm sure it would go something like that, in Italian of course.  I like to imagine Miuccia Prada being a woman of few words.  I hope you enjoyed this edition of "Italian Designer Dinner Theater", now enjoy my Gucci Fall 2011 picks!  Ha!

 The accessories!

Seriously.  It's been one heck of a past few days here in Spryland starting with my 2 1/2 year old getting a stomach bug that was wrong on so many levels.  Luckily it lasted only 24 hours but trust me, it was one heck of a 24 hour stretch.  She may have said at one point, very seriously "I puked A LOT!".  And then these storms that have been tearing through Georgia (well, all of the Southeast), have been terrible - what the "hail" is going on?  lol!  Luckily in my neck of the woods we had no damage other than rattled nerves.  To say I'm sleep deprived would be an understatement.  Major understatement.  So I'm playing major catch up here.  Bear with me, I have some posts planned, but just need to get them up and running.  See you later, promise!

My Five - Prada Fall 2011

No outfit post today - it's been one heck of a week here in Spryland.  True confession - I have literally been in sweats for the past week, seriously.  I am a bit overwhelmed with the job search (any advice to make it less daunting?) and with the mountains of pollen we all have been sniffling, coughing and I have battled daily headaches.  It's never good when they tell you to watch out for "pollen drifts", no lie they said this on the news because it's so darn windy.  I'll be back with outfit posts next week when I'm a little more on top of things.  Now on to Prada...

This was a super interesting collection, particuarly the boots, with the trompe d'oeil shoe which I fell in love with.  It had a very 1960's flavor with a dash of 1920's thrown in, and python, lots of python.  Prada always lands in my top 5 every season for inspiration.  So here are my more than 5 picks with many detail shots - swoon.  And at the very end my personal pick from this collection.  Enjoy!


 Loving these color combinations:

 Ahhhh, the boots/shoes - gorgeous!

 I always find one thing in every collection that I want to own and these boots are my pick - LOVE!
