If you’ve been searching for this cult classic in “Beso,” it’s finally restocked! I love the magenta “Fiore” version and I’m anxious to wear try it in candy apple red. It does dry out my lips considerably, but a generous application of Vaseline at night is usually all I need to rehydrate by morning.

October’s budget post is going up tomorrow. (So. Much. Damage.) I hope you’ll join the link up and share your wardrobe progress. Whether you’re budgeting or trying The French Wardrobe Challenge, I love learning how your curate your closet.

My holiday accessorizing is all taken care of, thanks to this glam necklace c/o Gerard Yosca. This mixture of hammered gold domes and rhinestone baguettes and pave remind me of confetti.

I love this set of Victoria’s Secret pajamas so much that I bought them in both grey and black and I would have snagged the pink version if it wasn’t so sheer. The fabric is silky with a bit of stretch, making them ultra comfortable without becoming baggy overnight (my biggest frustration with cotton sets).

I had been awfully stressed prepping for our annual expo and didn’t want to go out on the weekends, so we spent evenings at home trying new beers. I purchased this mermaid bottle opener on last year’s trip to D.C., but there are plenty of versions available on Amazon.

T

ry as I might to branch out from my sartorial comfort zone, a short frock is my perennial fallback and this dress has more than earned its keep in my wardrobe. I purchased it over a year ago and have worn it year round, swapping out accessories to keep it seasonally appropriate. This weekend was unseasonably warm, which gave the dress one last bare-legged hurrah before tights make regular appearances in my OOTDs.

t’s not like I needed anything from the Tory Burch Private Sale, but this metallic lace minaudiere was such a lovely way to treat myself to an event well done. White and gold is one of my favorite color combinations and I love that the lattice design keeps this from being basic. I just placed the order, but I have a feeling it’ll be something I’ll reach for year after year. (Let’s be honest, I’m also pretty excited to finally have a minaudiere with a strap to keep my hands free for cocktails.)

P.S. If you love the quilted Fleming bag as much as I do, the mini version in pink is on sale at Cusp.
