10 Things

I love this list of essentials from Oscar de la Renta that I read in a past issue of allure... so much so I made this graphic to print while I was snowed in. 

My favorite quote is #8. It's actually discouraged me from buying new perfume recently. I like to change up fragrances every once in awhile, but do have a signature scent. It's Abercrombie 8... old school! My other favorites of late are Bond West Side and Lady Gaga Fame. Do you have a signature scent?

I'm inspired to go out and get some deep red carnations for an arrangement (in a blue and white vase). Carnations bring me back to my 90's dance recitals. I like how the RueLaLa Style Guide defined the flower as "The Comeback Kid" in their Valentine's Day Flower Guide:

Carnations have gotten a bad rap, but I’m not buying it. In fact, much like Carrie Bradshaw, I’m a big believer that the once-regal flower is making a comeback. And if my word isn’t enough, just look to famous fans Oscar de la Renta, Manolo Blahnik, and Martha Stewart (who’s praised their longevity). Convinced yet?


  1. This is great and I completely agree with the "tall shoes" and "small bag" nothing says glam like that pair.

    The only thing I would as is a fresh brewed cup of coffee!
