Styling my 1st Stella & Dot Trunk Show

Tomorrow is my 1st live Stella & Dot trunk show!  So last night & today I spent time styling it. Thought I'd share my photos. Merci, to my fab neighbor for letting me try a look on her. I called it postcards from Palm Beach. She loved.  Let the fashionable fun begin tomorrow, I love draping people in jewels. I do...

MAXImum Sparkle x3.

Know me and know I rarely ever show up in a maxi. But when I spotted this sparkling beaded maxi skirt in Little Five Points, Atlanta I swooned. AND I scored... $15!! That's sparkle #1. 

Sparkle #2 would be the fabulous glass of champagne I hold in my hand throughout this entire post, strolling in the beautiful backyard of my dear friend's grandmother's on Thanksgiving day... Cheers! 

And sparkle #3 you ask? My new, stylishly exciting venture into Stella & Dot as a sales stylist. Wish me luck! As a stay at home mommy, I miss the "fashion world" & this is my foray back into it. Glinting, gleaming, shimmering, shining accessories... #LOVE. My 1st two Stella & Dot acquisitions below... the 1st a celebration of L, with a Leo charm, L charm & peridot (august birthstone) charm. 
Hope this finds you reveling in the beauty and fabulousness of the season.

today called for skinnies in bloom

 Set out today in my fave jeans of the moment. Yep, loud, saturated blossoming ones. Blooming shoes too! and a metal-trim lace tank. Oh & how could a plaid-loving girl forget? A plaid bow headband. My best accessory and I went to a party and then to our neighborhood pond to feed the ducks. Perhaps more on the party later... Don't you adore L's little convertible Red Flyer? 
I leave you with Wild Nothing's Paradise featuring vocals by Michelle Williams. I am so in love with this track... You'll find it at the bottom of this post. Prepare to swoon.

mod mod world.

a hurricane churning out in the atlantic allowed me to dig up another pair of boots... well, booties. or rain booties, rather. mod much? acquired these inky black shoes in london back in '95. found them and shined them up today. it's raining it's pouring, why not? 

ha, made me think of this track by tears for fears for some reason... mod world, mad world, england, the old days, you know...?

two weddings and a honky tonk

just back from tennessee, loveys. road tripped it up there for one of my beautiful sparkling sister's weddings. yep. two. one traditional. one buddhist. both beautiful. 
wore a gold hi-lo dress from H&M to the first, with a fab necklace from forever 21.(the bride wore Amsale.) wore a shining silver dress by muse to the other with a glitzy necklace from ann taylor loft. squeezed in a stroll down nashville's broadway in between. WHAT an adventure...

Celebrating Life

i've only been to 3,000 one-year-old birthday parties in the last two months. many of which were pool parties. however this one was surprisingly sparkling! we celebrated my brazilian friend marili's mini-super-model gabriella's 1st on a gorgeous south florida day overlooking the intracoastal waterway. marili soundtracked the party with fun '80s pop. spunky gabby was born on my dear mother's birthday, making her all the more special. 
was pretty, precious & sweet.
