Doesn’t the redhead at the very top remind you of Andie in Pretty in Pink, except with a modern twist? I feel like it’s the slightly mixmatched outfit, the hair and glasses, and especially the hat! I am loving it, seeing that I love adore Molly Ringwald and the movie as well. I do believe that Thrift Candy is right…Ringwald was the early pioneer of Granny chic. I totally agree. Oh, and how hot was James Spader…mmm yum.

Hi lovelies. Meet my friend AM. Isn’t she pretty? Well, she was bored with her style and asked me for help. So, we dug into my closet and had some fun. Here is a little sneak preview of what’s to come! And, to find out how you can get AM’s look, click here! SPxx

My dearest readers, I was at home in bed today, so I apologize for the lack of posting. And, when I am feeling under the weather or just plain blue, I love looking at pictures of Paris. After living there for a good part of a year, it makes me so happy to look at photos of this luminous city and remember all the people I met and the memories I made during that special time. See you all tomorrow! SPxx

Dreaming of summer on a cold, snowy day.

What it currently looks like in New York.


The beach last summer, where I want to be right now.

P.S. Aren’t these two outfits perfect for spring!

Everything about woman’s outfit is pretty spectacular, not to mention the woman herself. (What gorgeous, tousled hair. So sexy.) She has a very understated beauty that sneaks up on you, and her style seems to be the same. At first glance, she seems to be wearing a fairly simple, monochromatic ensemble. However, look a little closer and you’ll notice her pretty necklace and cool belt, plus the interesting cut of the jacket and pants gives the outfit character. As far as the shoes are concerned, I feel for the most part, I have moved on from pointy-toed heels. But, for these, I will make an exception. Garance Dore was right when she said,”These heels are absolutely sublime. They deserve an ellipse in it of themselves.”

Jump for joy, it’s Friday!

Don’t you wish you could be as lucky as Betty and jump up high, right next to the Seine? Lucky duck.

This gorgeous sweater by APC–available at Creatures of Comfort— is a tad out of my price range, seeing that it is $223, but I am still allowed to dream and covet, right? Sigh. I have been trying to find a more affordable version elsewhere, yet am still searching, so if you have any leads shoot them my way! SPxx

Handsome fellas.
