dCc Gift Guide: for the Bride

Well darlings, it's that time of year again .... the dCc Gift Guides are back! Instead of a typical "Wedding Wednesday" I thought I would start off my dCc Gift Guide series with the perfect Christmas gifts for  a blushing bride-to-be! Although she may have something borrowed, and something blue, here are a few ideas for her something "new" .....

1. Smythson Wedding Planner - get this stamped with her initials for an added personal touch!

2. Kate Spade Monogram Notecards - help her get a head start on her thank you notes with these darling notecards featuring her new monogram

3. Crate & Barrel Champagne Flutes - she can celebrate by sipping bubbly out of these elegant (but affordable!) flutes 

4. Vintage Chanel Pearl Earrings - any kind of pearl is perfect to wear for the Big Day.. but vintage Coco? .... it truly doesn't get better than that

5. Manolo Blahnik Satin d'Orsay - the shoe fits..... need I say more?

Veronica Beard


I am absolutely loving Veronica Beard's latest blazer collection! Their pieces are truly at the epicenter of where fashion meets function as the jackets can work from season to season with interchangable linings and sweaters which you can simply zip in and out depending on what you are in the mood to wear.. see it here! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Veronica Beard (I posted about the company last year here). These ladies are truly fashion Trail Blazers!

Happy Thanksgiving Darlings!

Happy Thanksgiving Darlings! I hope you all have a lovely time with friends & family, enjoying yummy food and quality time together. There is nothing I love more during this hoilday weekend than being cozy in my classic prep attire - I'll certainly be dressed in tweed, oxfords, and velvet slippers the entire time. What will you wear for the holiday weekend?

Wedding Wednesday: Thanksgiving Fete

I have always been in love with this gorgeous wedding featured in Martha Stewart Weddings a few years ago. I felt there was no better day to share it then today as the wedding was hosted over Thanksgiving weekend. To make it even better,  the couple hosted their gorgeous rehearsal dinner on Thanksgiving, serving a traditional meal for all of their family and friends. When else would you get to spend the holiday with truly all the special people in your life?

I Love Your Style

Spotting the always-fabulous Amanda Brooks in Barneys a few weeks ago reminded me of how much I adore her book "I Love Your Style". It is one of my favorite gifts to give to those whose style I admire. I love to make each gift personal by writing a little note in the front cover about why I love their style. Whose style do you love?

Comfy Cozy Weekend

There is really nothing better that keeping yourself warm at home in an oversized sweater on a chilly Fall Sunday. Would you agree darlings?

Crazy Friday ... Running Around

Well darlings, usually I love Fridays as it is a great day for me to catch up on work and run errands as a prep for the weekend ahead. Well, today has been quite a crazy one at work and to make it that much worse last night our car got broken into!! Why are there crazy people in the world who do awful things like that? Let's just say I am excited for the weekend to begin!

PS - Update from the Elizabeth Cole trunk show last night - I bought this gorgeous necklace. What do we think?

Wedding Wednesday: THE Little White Dress

As most of your already know, I wore a gorgeous Katie Ermilio dress to my rehearsal dinner. Thus, I was beyond delighted when I received her completed Spring 2012 lookbook this week - to see that there are so many gorgeous pieces for brides in her collection. These uber - feminine designs done in white truly are the perfect little white dress for any bride!

If you haven't checked out Katie's entire Spring 2012 collection - look here - it's beyond phenomenal!

Christopher Kane + J Brand = Colorful Collaboration

Well darlings, I am terribly sorry that I have been so MIA this week! My lack of blogging was due to my busy work travel. However, yesterday while at Barney's in NYC I was able to see the launch of the Christopher Kane & J Brand collaboration. I am absolutely LOVING the neon denim! ... but I am wishing these denim delights came out in the Summer rather than November.

The Perfect Pearls

If you know me, you know that I absolutely adore pearls and wear them quite often (I must say they may be a signiture peice of my personal style).   I have always lusted after this single strand Chanel necklace .... should this be on the top of my Christmas wishlist this year? It may just be the PERFECT pearl addition to my wardrobe.

Back in Black

Now that the weather has finally changed here in San Francisco, I am loving the idea of infusing black back into my wardrobe and home. So chic & sophisticated, yet extremely easy to outfit!
