This gorgeous swimsuit from Swimsuits for All.
The Avenger Sashi Bikini
Every once in a while, something on a webpage or email will jump out at me and I’ll drool over it for months. And that’s what happened here. I saw the suit in an e-newsletter and swooned.
I’m not much for giving a shit about swimsuits. Mostly because I hide underneath a tank top when I head for the water. But I love this swimsuit. Love it. It’s so pretty and stunning. Would I wear it? Hell yeah! Would I cover up with a tank? …….Hm, more than likely.
Rainbow Johnson’s Rainbow Sweater
Do you watch Blackish? If not, you should. It’s a good show. It’s smart and funny and sometimes it showcases the best clothes (and sometimes the clothes are out there!).
Last year, Rainbow Johnson (Tracee Ellis Ross) wore the most gorgeous sweater. I felllll in love with it. I searched immediately online for it. It turns out, it’s a Marc Jacobs.
It is sold out at most stores but it is still available on therealreal.com for only $225!
But look how adorable it is.
And, while doing some Google research for this post, I found out that Taylor Swift wore the same sweater (while riding a cat unicorn, nonetheless) during a TV commercial. Apparently, my sweater is super popular.
But, since I don’t have Taylor Swift’s budget OR Tracee Ellis Ross’ budget, I have done some checking on Amazon and found some close calls.
Here’s the white one:
Which one do you like?
(Seriously, I love them both!)
A Yellow Coat
I have been wanting that yellow leather jacket from Buffy the Vampire Slayer since I was 15. But I’ve also been on the hunt for a yellow winter coat for a good 10 years now too.
And I’m not super picky…as long it’s the right color of yellow and is long enough to cover my butt, and looks good….I’ll be happy.
Think Faith Hill in her Stealing Kisses video….
Remember – butt and neck need to be warm.
Today I put up my Christmas tree. This may be the earliest I’ve put it up but, it has been crappy weather outside, I’m home, and after doing some crazy Black Friday weekend shopping yesterday in the City with the girls (followed by an evening of spicy wine and girl chats) I was kind of in the mood.
So, the tree is up, the presents are underneath (although not yet wrapped), and I did some more shopping this afternoon.
I also got a massive splinter underneath my fingernail in the midst of all this, which is still dug in there and doesn’t seem like it’s planning to vacate itself anytime soon.
But, since I’m at the computer already and basically in the Christmas mood, here is the very first of my Christmas Wish List posts for 2016.
I love bib necklaces. They are the perfect way to make a statement and dress up any outfit.
I have a few “sorta” bib necklaces, but when I visited Amazon recently I was overwhelmed and jealous of all the gorgeous necklaces that popped up. I want one…or two….or a half dozen.
Listen, if anyone out there in WordPress Land wants to indulge me and buy me a bib necklace like these – or any variation – I happily accept.
Ack! If you know me you know that I love dresses. Love them. Live in them throughout spring, summer, and half of fall. Basically, I live in dresses until the weather is too cold to go bare-legged and wear open toe shoes.
So it’s very fitting that the next four items on my wish list are dresses. Not just dresses but gorgeous dresses that I must have in my wardrobe.
#1 This turquoise dress is what dreams are made of *sigh*
#2 This cream dress is a fairy tale
#3 Every girl needs a little black dress (or 10) and this LBD is so bewitching
#4 My favorite color is yellow and this dress, although not as elegant as the others, is adorbs. And I could totally wear it to work.

Last year I posted several time on items on my Christmas wish list and luckily someone was paying attention because a few of my gifts were directly from the list (my sister-in-law ROCKS!). So, I thought, for fun, I’d continue the list for 2013.
#1 This Sweater
I.Love.This.Sweater. But I’m cheap and it’s about a hundred bucks before shipping and taxes so I highly doubt I’ll expect it – unless Santa wants to drop it down the chimney. But there’s something so eye catching about those robins.
I WANT THIS:
I know Christmas is over and I can’t add to my Holiday Wish List but I can’t stop looking at this tank. I think it’s too cute. Who said Animal Prints were out??
Pineapple Print Dress
Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good dress. As soon as spring hits and all the damn snow has melted I live in dresses until the end of fall (or until it gets too cold to go bare-legged).
A few years ago I spotted a pineapple print dress in a magazine and have been on the lookout for one since. Sadly, I haven’t found any. But my eyes are still open. Maybe Santa will be kind and bring me one. Here are a few of my favorites:
Aren’t these all adorable? I can’t wait to find one I like so that I can wear it and feel like summer again.
How magnificent are these glitzy, sparkly booties? I think everyone needs a little bling for their feet. I would totally rock these. Unfortunately, I don’t know who makes them….so I may have to do a little glitter painting to my regular booties.
