Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

I'm taking the rest of the year off from blogging.  I need a break, time to regroup, time to be inspired, time to have fun with family and friends, and of course time to just have one less thing on my plate during this busy time.  So I will say goodbye here on the blog until 2013 (though I'll still probably be Instagramming and Twittering away - look me up, I'm @spryonthewall for both).  I hope every single one of you has a wonderful rest of the year!  See you in 2013!

Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 - My Five

If you don't like stripes or checks, then stay away from this collection.  A kind of precursor to his Louis Vuitton Spring collection - he rarely overlaps/connects these two collections (things are generally kept very separate) but this time they could be half-sisters!  I'm digging the mod vibe!  Here are my picks!

Lanvin Belt or Cologne From "Anchorman"?

I saw this Lanvin belt:
 
 
Which made me think of this:
 
The "Sex Panther" Cologne from the movie "Anchorman"!
 
Which of course makes me laugh because as we all know:
 
And that, my friends, is how my brain works...

Happy Weekend and a Thank You!

Sorry I've been M.I.A most of the week, I've been holed up in manufacturing facilities handling a project.  As a follow up to last Friday's post, I did end up checking out the Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration, well let me say I was disappointed.  The price points didn't match what I saw at all.  Just too much money for the quality, I was expecting a bit more polish for the price and it just wasn't there for me, so I walked out empty handed.  I mean the Oscar de la Renta tote that I wanted was $60, which in reality was a basic natural canvas tote with a print on it - NOT worth $60.  So thanks, but no thanks.  I'll wait for the clearance prices.  And I don't know about your Target, but nothing has sold at my Target - the shelves are overflowing with this stuff.  Enough of my rant, on to better shopping news...

A couple of weeks ago I won a sweet $200 gift card giveaway for MaxStudio over at Sandy a la Mode!  I mean, wow, right?!?  I wasted no time picking out some goodies, check 'em out:

 
Here they are in full (except the green/black check top - which I couldn't find online anymore)
 
I love everything I picked out, just perfect!  So, a HUGE thank you to Sandy for hosting such an amazing giveaway!  She has a great blog so make sure you stop by and check it out!
 
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

What I Wore Wednesday!

Not many outfits again this week (thanks to work stuff - when I have to sport a uniform of sorts).  We are finishing decorating the tree today!

Top - Old Navy
Jeans - Gap
Cardigan - Missoni for Target
Necklace - b'day gift

A couple of weeks ago I was sent a fabulous necklace c/o Coldwater Creek and Real Simple magazine.  Of course I went about styling up this sparkly gem, it's so versatile.  Check out some outfits I pulled together from my closet:
 
I'm linking up again with The Pleated Poppy for WIWW. Make sure you head over and check out what everyone else is wearing!
