Blank Space

I often find myself asking others if they seen have the latest ____  music video and either get a polite "No, I haven't....tell me about it" or something along the lines of "When/Why do you watch music videos?" 

My gym, exhale, shows videos during Video Core Cycling class. It helps to fill that early 2000 TRL void in my life. Last week I saw Taylor Swift's latest, "Blank Space", and was blown away. The scenery, fashion and T-Swift's craziness is amazing (not to mention the Mean Girls reference). It's like Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" meets Town & Country.

Here is a run down of the featured fashions. The video was filmed at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York. 

What do you think?

Sunday Shopping

Recapping some shopping highlights from the weekend while watching football Anthropologie is offering 25% on all dresses... I picked this one up for an upcoming holiday event. I'm 5'2" so love that they offer this in petite. I typically don't buy petite sizes but in this case the length worked perfectly - the regular couldn't have been hemmed without losing the bottom detail.

I will be wearing this as pictured over a grey tee with black leggings and boots. 

I am going to a football game this weekend and realized I didn't have a warm jacket that I wanted to wear. Great deal! I wore it all weekend.

I have been seeing this vest all over the blogosphere... broke down and bought it. I'm a sucker for plaid.

Now back to cheering on the Pats... Happy Shopping!

Falling For...

Apparently a polar vortex is headed to Connecticut this weekend. Wishing I had this outfit to face it.

I'll probably be curled up on the couch in this snow leopard robe from Tarjay.

P.S. Shoshanna is on Rue La La today at 11AM EST. Perfect dresses for those upcoming holiday parties! If you are in the NYC area, the sample sale is 11/19 & 11/20 (details here). I went a couple years ago and scored some great deals. Happy Shopping!

Weekend Update

This past weekend was spent in Philadelphia visiting my friend Dineen. We woke up early on Saturday morning for yoga and then followed with a bar hopping tour around Philly. Even though I went to college in Pennsylvania (Lehigh) I haven't spent much time in Philly, so it was nice to get a tour of the city.

One of the doors along Elfreth's Alley, America's oldest residential street. I was curious how much these homes sold for and found a listing from earlier this year. Have a peak inside.

I'm happy to say that I completed most of my goals I posted last Monday, including organizing my makeup and products. I did wait until Sunday night but it got done. This is before I put it all back in the bathroom and not pictured is the pile of stuff I threw away. I ordered these acrylic drawers on Amazon about 2 years ago and really like being able to see everything I have in one place. The Container Store has similar drawers for a better price.

That's all for now... have a good week!

Target Alert

A friend of mine tipped me off to Target's online only collaboration with Minnesota-based Faribault that includes blankets, shawls, bags and tech accessories. My picks include the throws and shawls. 

This led me to the Faribault site... love the American flag throw.

And while we are on the topic of blankets at Target...

Threshold Organic Blanket $30.99 - $49.99

These are similar to Maine-based Brahms Mount's signature herringbone styles.
