My Take - Victoria Beckham Laser Cut Clutch

I've been loving Victoria Beckham's handbag line, especially her chic little clutches.  But needless to say they are all a bit out of my price range.  I really like the laser cut clutches that Victoria has been carrying lately.  I can't seem to find one online at all (so I guess it's either last season or sold out).  I ran across these lovely pouches from Kate Spade Saturday, I think they are a pretty good substitute! I mean they are a heck of a lot cheaper ;o)

My Take - Givenchy Shark Tooth Necklace

I really have gone on and on about the darn Givenchy Shark Tooth necklaces, even after a year I'm still smitten.  But hey dropping $1K or even $500 on one of them is completely out of the question.  So time to find some budget friendly alternatives...
1. Karmaloop necklace - $10.95
4.  Hardcouture necklace - $18.95

Kindergarten Countdown - 27 Days

That's right, my little girl starts kindergarten in 27 days.  I haven't fully grasped this yet.  She's totally excited and so ready to get the show on the road.  I, however, am sort of freaking out.  She's growing up so fast (how cliche is that?).  Of course that first year was no fun, I wouldn't repeat the first year if you paid me.  That year almost killed me, but since then, the time has really flown by.  And now she's 5 and starting school.  Yikes!  Since the first day is right around the corner, I've started the back to school shopping.  The first purchases were her backpack and lunchbox, which she picked out from the Lands' End catalog.  And of course we had to get it personalized with her name per her request ;o)

(embroidery is extra)

Anyone else out there have a little one heading to kindergarten this year?

Monochromatic Monday - Back in Black

I'm going to start a new series here on the blog called Monochromatic Monday. It was inspired by Tabitha Coffey the star of Bravo's Tabatha Takes Over.  She wears nothing but black, not boring black, but mixtures of textures and draping and interesting cuts. Besides, what's easier than throwing on an outfit that consists of one color (or color family)?  So each Monday I'm going to pop in with a different color.  It's fitting we start with Tabitha's signature black:
2.  Adia Kibur cuff - $30
5.  Ivanka Trump shoes - $70

Wishlist Item - R2D2 Tee

I'm such a Star Wars geek, I just love everything about it and I like to show my love for all things Star Wars.  I just don't want to be tacky or over the top, you know what I mean?  Luckily there are a gazillion well designed (and fun) Star Wars items out there to be found.  Having already invested in a kick ass Darth Vader sweater (snagged from the boys department at the Gap), I'm on the lookout for other fun Star Wars items to add to my wardrobe.  Here's my latest "wishlist item" - an R2D2 tee from Crewcuts.  And here's how I'm thinking about styling it up.
4.  Sole Society wedge - $60
