Pour Homme

Today's treasure is a little something for the guys. Although, I'm not ashamed to admit even my heart did a little jump when I first heard the news of the new Hermes Mens Store that opened on NYC's Madison Ave in early February. Actually, who am I kidding, my heart does a somersault anytime I see/read/hear mention of Hermes (am I the only one that hears the angels' harp?). I have always held the brand in high esteem, ranking it only alongside luxury label Chanel, in elegance, refinement, and chic-ness. I have yet to visit the store, which is the first of its kind in that it is solely a mens store, but I did get the scoop on this fab pair of sneakers. Take a peek and leave a comment.

Hugh and Crye

I've been hearing about Hugh and Crye for a while now on the DC Style radar but last week I finally decided to visit their website to find out what they're all about.  I was pleasantly surprised when I read their company profile to find that they're not just another company trying to schlep a European styled dress shirt off on the American public.  They've actually come up with a very unique and original way of sizing men's dress shirts, which you can learn more about here.  Here are a couple I've decided to buy as gifts for the lucky men in my life. Think they'll like them as I much as I do?

Looking for a resourceful way to put those old books to work?  Here's one that caught my eye.  Love this!

Olivia Palermo

Is it just me or fashion-wise can Olivia Palermo do no wrong?!? 

***Updated:  Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks Olivia Palermo has the style of a fashion goddess.  Here are some pictures of Ms. Palermo and her gorgeous boyfriend, Johannes Huebl on their Mango magazine photo shoot.

During my blog reading today, I stumbled across the Brook&Lyn boutique and began an immediate and steamy love affair with just about all the accessories listed in their catalogue.  These are the ones I felt should immediately be gifted to me just because I have no idea how I'll ever manage without them. 
Spider Family Brooch - Vintage - $85

Goddess Coin Necklace - Vintage - On Sale $45

ZigZag Gold Necklace - Vintage - On Sale $45

Thrifty Tuesday!

I missed last week's Thrifty Tuesday but never fear, I'm back this week and I think you'll love my latest find.  This Dana Buchman houndstooth jacket was just too cute to leave in the store, so I adopted it and now it has a new home!  The sleeves are 3/4 length, so I'm thinking once it gets cold I can wear it with long leather gloves.  I'll post pics as soon as I venture out in my new look!

Bathroom Envy

I saw this bathroom from the Kips Bay Showhouse and died a thousand love-deaths. Oh My Goodness!
