Time to Pack…

Heading to my Shangri-La on Wednesday.

I have always had a love affair with New York City.

I used to go there with my mother at Christmas, it is our special place.

As a little girl I dreamed of living there when I grew up-

as an artist, a museum curator, a fashion designer.

Didn’t happen!

Luckily, I am now able to travel to New York for work.

I am traveling with one of my “besties”!

She is letting me tag along on another Poppy’s buying trip.

We always have a wonderful time,

a little work (actually a lot but it doesn’t feel like work),

lots of vino and good laughs!

The Big Apple better watch out!

What to pack….

1. A great bag

Tom Ford Medium Petra Bag

2. Cozy shirt for traveling

J. Crew Denim Shirt

3. Easy layers to wear to market

It is freezing in there.

Pretty Top and a Blazer

4. Great Pair of Jeans.

I love these a little worn paired with the Chanel Inspired Blazer

J. Crew Skinnies- Love

3. Comfy Ballet Flats for lots of walking 

I really hate flats but for these I’ll make an exception

Christian Louboutin Ballet Flats

4. Great Day to Night Outfit-

Dressy blouse paired with a blazer and some edgy jewels

I love this look.

4.  Something for dinner and possibly dancing…

Love the Sparkle…

5. Some Kick Ass Shoes

Giuseppe Zanotti Metal Counter Sandals

6. And of course a little inspiration.

Happy Shopping!

Take Me Away….

Take Me Away....
Susana Monaco Dress from Poppy’s of Atlanta
As you can see I am wanting two things in my life right now.

Vacation. Simplicity.


Easy clothes that look great and are simple, comfortable and not fussy.

I love this simple column Susana Monaco maxi for the summer.
I actually got it in navy.
I can’t wait to wear it.

It will look great with these matching Kenneth Jay Lane Studded Cuffs. 


Having matching cuffs is a simple way to take an ordinary outfit and make it special. 

And with my new favorite flips flops.
Tkees.

They are the best and very affordable- around $45.
They come in all different colors but I love the nude ones.

All Strung Out and Loving the Designs

As some of you may know I work in a boutique in Atlanta called Poppy’sPoppy’s is an Atlanta staple and has been in business for 30 years. The current owners are Lindsay Wegener, Alice Daniel and Katie Edwards. It is a wonderful store and they carry designers such as Rebecca Taylor (definitely one of my favorites), Alice + Olivia, Beth Bowley etc….
If you haven’t checked it out-well you should! Come see us!
I’m in love with a jewelry line that we carry called
All Strung Out Designs
by designer Carol Phillips Fails
Check her out on the web
www.allstrungoutdesigns.com

She lives in Nashville, TN and has come to Poppy’s for a couple of trunk shows. We not only love her jewelry but we love her too!
Below are some of her pieces. She uses vintage pins and mounts them onto bone cuffs and necklaces.
They are truly one of a kind and exquisite.

Each piece is signed and dated by Carol, I can definitely see handing these down to my daughter one day. They are so timeless. And for all my Girls On A Budget,  consider this an investment for your wardrobe. Or even better ask Santa for it!!!

 
The best part of all is when you get it in the mail it comes in this most wonderful packaging! It is almost too pretty to open. I always love when the UPS truck pulls up to my house as it is but to open up the box and see this! That makes me a happy girl!!!

XO, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do! Im absolutely addicted!
