The question I'm pondering lately is "What the heck is up with my hair?"  I mean really, is it a bad cut, wrong product, I just don't know, but it's making me nuts.  I picked up a few new products to try, I'll let you know how it goes.  I also need to play with the flat iron a bit more too. Oh well, here are a few outfits I've worn recently.  Hope you have a great Wednesday!
Wrap Cardigan - Forever 21
Shirt - Target
Pants - Gap (thrifted)
Shoes - Toms
Necklace - gift

Top - Banana Republic (scored for $14)
Jeans - Gap (thrifted)
Shoes - Gap City Flats

Love This! - Clinique Black Honey

I'm a little late to the Black Honey party (like 15+ years late), but better late than never!  I just bought a tube of this last week (thank you Sephora Christmas gift card) and I'm all in.  It is gorgeous, it glides right on and adds just enough color to make you feel "finished", even on days when you don't/can't do the full makeup routine.  I love it!  And Clinique is adding a whole array of new "Honey" colors soon, can't wait to give those a try too. 

*No, Clinique didn't pay me to say this, though if they want to float some of those new colors my way, I wouldn't turn them down - lol!

Vera Wang's New LA Home

As promised, here's a peek inside Vera Wang's Los Angeles mid-century modern home which was built in 1967.  Wang tapped LA designer Steve Hermann for a 3 year renovation of the home.  It's modern and sophisticated, just like Vera.  Check it out:

This woman is 62!  She looks amazing!

Her closet filled with her signature black and grey hues.

My Five - Vera Wang Pre-Fall 2012

I've professed my love/admiration for Vera Wang before here, but I'll say it again - I just love her and her style.  I love her lack of pretension, her sophistication, her clear vision for her brand and let's face it kids, this woman does not age.  Vera is going to be the subject of two posts today.  First up my picks from her pre-fall collection which features lots of layers, knits, mixture of textures and swirly prints.  (Stay tuned later for some snaps of her new Los Angeles home)

What I Wore Wednesday!

I'm joining up with The Pleated Poppy again for WIWW.

It's been a weird Winter so far with the weather, it's been so warm that 90% of the time I have to ditch the sweater/blazer etc by midday.  I've worn my Winter coat a grand total of 2 times this January.  And the seven day outlook shows it will be in the mid to upper 70's by next week.  Bottom line it makes for creative dressing (the password is layers my friends).  Here are a couple of things I've worn lately.
Cardigan - Forever 21
Shirt - Target
Jeans - Gap (thrifted)
Shoes - Cole Haan
Necklace - made by my Mom

Blazer - LAMB
Shirt - Target
Pants - J. Crew
Shoes - Tory Burch
Necklace - made by my Mom
(had to cut my head off because I was making a face in every. single. picture.)
