Do you ever have something occur that knocks the wind out of you?


Me too.

I am still struggling to wrap my arms around it. I am trying to act normally, but I am still reeling a bit. How does one move past something quickly - because to be completely honest that is ALL I want to do.

Ok. enough about me and more about what I am listening to....

my brand new. bag

I totally bought a new bag.

Really.. I literally have a "brand new bag".

Drum roll... thank you Frassy Rags


God love it. Seriously. God Loves Yellow Highlighter Clutch Purse

my new hair.

I am getting my hair done next Friday. I have not highlighted my hair in FOREVER. I don't want my hair to look unnaturally streaky. I have had an itch to make some changes to my look. I am going to grow out the ol' bangs (I think) and go with a different color. Nothing too drastic or streaky. I will be brining my stylist this picture of The Man Repeller's new hair color.

Here are her before and afters:




When I was young, I hated gold. I thought it was tacky. I never understood why a yellow metal would cost more than classic sterling silver, although believe me, I was not complaining. Fast forward 10 years and here I am ... BATHED in golden baubbles and menwear watches. So you can imagine the sheer joy I felt when I read this post on The Man Repeller. I instantly fell in love with the necklace she was wearing. A perfect piece to wear with a beautiful dress to cocktail party (I have just the one in mind) or with a heather grey tricotton racerback tank from American Apparel.

Here are some of my favorites:

Annabelle Bracelet 0 18 KT recycled gold vermeil $175)

"Tiny Bang" 18 KT Gold Vermeil $135

Baby Brass - 18 KT gold vermeil $135
(I think Tiny Bang and Baby Brass would look amazing layered)
Ariel Baby Octopus Ring - 18 KT gold vermeil -$290

Eve Necklace - Sterling Silver Plated and 18 KT gold vermiel - $350

Find ALL these pieces PLUS some at http://www.kimberlybaker.com/

I also have found a pair of shoes, shorts and a tank that I felt I just HAD to share with you dear reader. I would like to thank TIBI for these beautiful gems. Find them here.

Solid Pant: $246

Silk CDC Cami in Cornhusk - $158

Barque Shoe - Textured Linen - $290

yes, another blog about nail polish....

I know I acknowledged my addiction to nail polish in this post. I told myself I would stop. I really, really, really tried. But I broke down and bought yet another nail #winner.

Essie has really outdone it self.

See for yourself.
