Operation: Friendship for Newtown


Like many of you I have spent the past 4 days feeling completely hopeless and saddened by Friday's senseless acts.

Lynzy over at Sparkling Footsteps created a beautiful project called Operation: Friendship for Newtown that she shared in a post today. 

I wanted to share Lynzy's post with all of you in hopes that we can all share some hope, joy and love with the children in Newtown, CT. 




Everyone has been asking "What can we do?" and "How can we help?"
I have been asking myself the same questions and came up with Operation: Friendship for Newtown
I don't know about you, but when I was little I loved making these friendship bracelets. Let this be a way to show these children that we are all thinking of them and that we are all friends. 
We are going to stick with green and white for colors. These are the colors that represent Sandy Hook....
After you create the bracelet, write a little letter stating where you are from and your favorite part about living where you live. You can also include a quote from Dr. Suess if you wish :)
I would love to get as many of these from around the country (& world) as we can. These little ones will be so excited to receive something all the way from California or Colorado or Florida!
I will be opening up a P.O Box where these may be shipped. Please, please spread the word. If you are a teacher, it could be a craft project for your children. Email me with any questions you may have (:

StyleWise Loves CrOp by David Peck


 I was introduced to Houston based fashion designer David Peck and his CrOp collection back in 2010. I was completely blown away by the unique, vibrant prints in his first collection and have watched line evolve over the last 2 years. 

My friend Anina over at David Peck Collection recently invited me to come check out their beautiful, chic showroom and newest collection.

I was once again in total awe of the gorgeous prints and silhouettes of the FW 2012 collection. 

I fell in love with the sophisticated yet edgy navy and grey woven shorts suit made up of the Lavina Jacket + Davis Top + Schooley Shorts!





I was super excited to find out that CrOp is doing a 12 Days of Christmas promotion leading up to Christmas Day and today is the 4th day of CrOp Christmas. 

30% off ANY plaid CrOp style today ONLY!

Blogger Holiday Style



I was super excited when Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps invited me to join her along with a few of my very favorite bloggers, Britt and WhitChristina and Devon , to style our perfect holiday looks for her Dress Code series. 

With holiday season and parties in full gear I couldn't wait to start putting together a festive look!


 While many of the parties I will be attending are of the "Tacky Christmas Sweater" type there are also many occasion to pull out the sequin festive style of dress.

Naturally, my perfect holiday outfit is a mix of some sparkle + peplum...two of my favorite trends at the moment...










What I wore:

Dorothy Perkins Pop Up Sale

I have been dying to place an order from Dorothy Perkins and when I learned of the 30% off everything sale I was super excited to get my shop on. I now have a basket full of fun fall items and I need your help narrowing it down. I am pretty set on this Ombre Dip Dye lusciousness but the Berry Fur Trim Coat is pretty darn irresistible.

Shop the looks!








And a few more goodies that might be making their way into the dark hole that is my shopping cart






I don't know if y'all have heard of Charlie Todd or not but he is someone you should know. I had the opportunity to hear him speak last month and he is legit. 

He started Improv Everywhere which creates pranks and causes scenes in large crowds that bring joy and laughter. I have watched nearly all of his YouTube videos and I have laughed until I cried at many of them. 

If you need a laughter-induced cry start here with last week's Black Friday prank at the Dollar Store!
