window shopping.

Habitually Chic has posted THIS amazing post about the Windows at Bergdorf Goodman and the $550 book that catalogues all their fantastic displays.

Check the post out immediately.

Here is just a little taste:

dream a little dream.

Of course I was aimless roaming the internet this morning. Of course I was clicking around Not Just a Label and I found this job posting...


Job type:Job Offering
Location:Soho, London
Contact person:Emma
Submitted by:SOHOROOM
To be on hand with managing and developing our portfolio of clients and liaising with the press, personalities and fashion houses during London, Paris, New York Fashion Weeks.

All interest must be sent with a full CV.


So I spit my coffee at the screen, ran and cleaning off my computer off and promptly hatched a plan to obtain this precious position by pulling a Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead with a "right on top of that rose" attitude and a fake resume.

Ok, so not a fake resume, but a "artfully" worded resume. I am a wordsmith when it comes to my accomplishments.

Anyway, you get the point. Tonight, I will be working on my resume and figuring out how to lose 50 pounds to fit into the clothing at the sample sales.

Soho here I come.

I forgot!

To obnoxiously proclaim what I am listening to right now....

and yes... this.

Just call me a coupon cutter.

Keeping it short & sweet today.

Here is what I am drooling over today at I had to limit this to two items.... otherwise, you would be here all day. (Or simply give up and hate me for wasting your time)

Cole Haan Oleanna

Steve Madden Chelseey

The Chelseey boots are on sale for $89.99 - I might have to pick the pair in black as well. I have all these coupons from Banana Republic for spending too much money on their clothing, so I can most likely get then both for the price of one. I sure hope they work with piperlime as well.

Fingers crossed.


Sorry about the absence. work. sucks. I will be back very very very soon (THINK 4 hours).

An Open Letter to Rick Owens...

(Rick Owens Leather Wedge Ankle Boots.. find them here)

Dearest Rick,

First, let me begin this correspondence by expressing my undying love for your genius. From your buttery leather to your beautifully draped turtlenecks you are sheer perfection. I have fallen under your spell Rick, and what a fantastic spell it is. Although, to be completely frank, I am having trouble coming up with the $1,285 required to purchase you leather wedge ankle boots. What do you propose a girl should do? Wear a substandard ankle boot around? Exclaim dramatically that should would just DIE if she could not have some Owens' "all up on her feet"?

Rick, your prompt response would be appreciated in this matter.

I wait with baited breath....


PS. Really? $1285. Sigh.

So now... what is fueling this open letter?

Wine and Music of course.... duh.

Tonight. I will drink fine wine whilst listening to this beautiful artist.

Coeur de Pirate.

I have the entire album. Download. Immediately.

So I am missing home.

Linoleum Block Print of Washington D.C. and Motto carved on Inauguration Day of 2009. Emily Wick

I found this block print while stalking about the internet. My husband is playing a video game. I was reading for a bit but the constant gunfire became a bit distracting.


I want it for my wall; something to remind me of home.

While I am on there I also think I will pick up the T-shirt with California and it's state motto "Eureka". (This by the way has nothing to do with where I was born/grew up. I for some reason get such a giggle out of the work "Eureka".

Thank you Emily Wick.

Holiday Parties...

Normally, this time a year I start saving copious amounts of pictures to my "cock-tails" folder of dresses and costume jewelry; this year I decided to shake it up a bit.

Here is how...

I am wearing a turban.

Maybe not this EXACT turban, but you get the idea. I am going to pull a full out Zoebot assault on every and all parties that are stupid enough to invite me. Wine club, you are first (mwah haha ha haaaaa).

I think the funny thing is that with a black dress the turban would look fantastic but I am actually taking it a step further with this...

a Romper from

(My new years resolution is to only buy clothing from ModCloth)

Then I plan on finishing the ensemble with these monsters...

ASOS TRAGEDY Leather And Stingray Wedge

I am still undecided on accessories. I am thinking a bit dainty and gold. Possibly a wish bone AND a double finger ring.


So there you go.
My first lesson in alienating your friends - one accessory at a time.

So what am I listening to now you ask? Wait, you don't care.

Too bad suckers.
