Marc Jacobs Fall RTW: What A Difference A Year Makes

If I had to jump into the brilliant, but sometimes crazy, mind of Marc Jacobs I would have to guess that this was the inspiration formula for his Fall 2012 collection: Dirty Mary Poppins, funky pilgrims, and a hat so awful that only Pamela Anderson would wear it. It all equaled a sloppy and confusing mess (for me at least, or am I taking crazy pills, because I hated it all so much!). Thank God, Marc got the equation so right for Fall 2013. Edie Sedgwick-esqe hair and make-up, Pillow Talk glam brought in by a formal take on sleepwear, and a wardrobe worthy of Julianne Moore's character in A Single Man added up to Fashion Perfection. What a difference a year makes.

Je T'aime

 My non-human Valentines, Plow-Plow and Rory
 Aubre found her Valentine
My forever Valentine!

I would have posted this last night, but the internet was being stupid.. I hope everyone had a joyous Valentine's Day! I spent the afternoon sneaking around delivering marble painted "je t'aime" Valentines  and tying red balloons to my lady friend's car windshields and front door knobs. The night was spent with my husband, Rory, Plow-Plow, pink tulips, pizza, and turtle cheese-cake.

SLT Approved Valentine Gifts At Prices You'll Love

1.Gilligan & O'Malley Knit Pajama Set- I love these super soft pjs and lounge in them constantly. I had been looking for a similar pair and found that these were by far the best price.
2.Voluspa Baltic Amber Candle- My friend Hallie gave me this candle for my birthday and I keep it burning in my living room. The scent is soft, but definitely lingers, and the glass holder is so pretty. I am going to use the holder for little flower arrangement when it burns down.
3.Korres Lemon Basil Body Butter- Another great gift from my sister-in-law Christy. It's natural and has a gender neutral scent, so me and husband both use it. I also like to us a little on my dog (hey, it's natural).
4.eos Lip Balm-My favorite lip balm ever and the great packaging goes far with me. It's a wonderful little gift to make a friend's day.
5.Marc Jacobs Rat Key Chain- I bought several of these for myself and a few friends years ago and I love having them on spare keys hanging around the house. Great designer gift for $4!
6.Marie Belle Hot Chocolate-I had the best hot chocolate of my life at Marie Belles in NYC. You can indulge in the creamy decadence at home by ordering from their online store. Once again use the charming tin for an adorable flower arrangement.

Now go out and spoil your lover with one of these sweet treats! If you want to really show your love, throw in an old fashioned homemade Valentine and you'll really have them swooning!

Caroline Sieber Classic

Sweater + Leather Shorts + Heels

I had never heard of Caroline Sieber until I came across her "My Stuff" article in Vanity Fair about four years ago. I immediately feel in love with her outfit perfection, tore the page out for my personal fashion records, and vowed to own a pair of leather shorts. Years later, the sweater, leather shorts, and heels combo is still one of my favorite looks and Caroline is still one of the most fashionable ladies in the world.
