Today is the last day of Shopbop’s major sale. It’s a great time to purchase any spring essentials like cocktail dresses for upcoming weddings or vacation wear (Tory Burch has the cutest striped espadrilles). I pulled the trigger on a pair of black Ferragamo Varinas and a Tory Burch tote (no longer available at Shopbop, unfortunately).
How cute are Erin’s monogrammed loafers?! She created them from inexpensive shoes from Old Navy. (Get started with the striped version here and the chambray version here.)
I’m still on a kick to redo our apartment and these succulent pots are too cute. Although, I think I’ll go with a white glazed pot with turquoise rocks.
Charnele of Cha Cha the Fashion Genius is working on her final graduate school marketing campaign project and would love your help. The survey only takes a few minutes to complete.

So, uh, this happened earlier this week. I’ve wanted one of Harry Allen’s piggy banks for years, but it seemed like such a ridiculous thing to spend that much money on. After scouring eBay for four years to snag one on the cheap, I finally found a silver one that went for $112. I can’t wait for it to arrive. (It’s cast from a deceased pig, which Dave finds morbid. Pssh.)
I gained .6 pounds this week. I’m not totally surprised. We visited Milwaukee last weekend and one of my many cocktails was a Brandy Alexander, an ice cream drink that probably had a pint worth in it. On the upside, I’ve lost another half inch from my hips and from my waist. I’m still working out two or three times a week. And, now that Daylight Savings Time is tomorrow and it will be light out after work, we’re going to start the couch-to-5k program soon.
