Yves Delorme

Yves Delorme is part of the family owned French Company, Fremaux Delorme, who has been producing fine linens since the mid 1800’s. The meticulous attention they take to their products is of the highest quality you will see anywhere. These products are gorgeous, so why not spoil Mom with some new bedding or pillows???

Below are a few of my favorites.

Check out the variety of floral and fun pillows.

How cute are these dog pillows?? What Chic doggy Mom wouldn't love these?

Brighten up the room with some fun Summer bedding

I could jump in this bed now! I love the look of crisp clean bedding.  

Their candles are amazing too!!

Chic Buds

How many of us on the go ladies are always digging in our bags for our headphones? Since moving to NYC, headphones are as necessary as your wallet or phone! I have a pair with me at all times. You never know when you will need to drown out the city around you or what crazy conversations the subway will have on any given day. The problem I have is that they are ALWAYS getting tangled and it takes a good 5 minutes to get the straightened out! UGH!

Last week, I had the opportunity to go to the Accessories Council Mother’s Day Expo.  And wouldn’t you know it; one of the vendors was Chic Buds. I hadn’t heard of this company before, and was really interested to see what products they had to offer. The ear buds they had on display are from their ARTS line. These   Instead of the usual rolled cords for ear buds, this company has flat cord! And the best part? They don’t tangle!! Seriously! I have been using them every day for the past couple of weeks and I haven’t had to spend time untangling them. And if that wasn’t enough, they come in fun, funky colors and prints. They were actually the first company to figure out how to print designs on the flat cords! How amazing is that!!?? I have the pink leopard (of course). So not only are they super cute and fashionable, they are much easier to at the bottom of my bag. They start at $30, which may seem a little high for earphones, but let me tell you, they will be worth every penny! The sound quality is great too! I have used them at the gym and have had no problems with sound quality or them coming out of my ears, which i have had problems with other brands in the past.
Chic Buds would make such a unique and practical gift for anyone. But how fun would they be for the mom who is trendy, tech savvy, workouts, or just enjoys some peace and quiet sometimes? If you are on the hunt for a gift Mom won’t expect and doesn't know she needs, get her some Chic Buds!!

The three designs from the ARTS series

Also, check out their website for other products. They have these super cute mini speakers that would make a fun little sussie for someone on your gift list.

Ok, I know you all have seen the crazy amount of neon that's hitting shelves this season! It is everywhere, like everywhere! So you might as well jump on the Neon Craze Train, Lovelies! Wearing neon can be tricky. Too much could make you look like you belong back in the 80's, and not in a good way. If you aren't sure how to transition neon into your wardrobe, start with just one piece at a time. That is the easiest way to get used to those high intensity pops of color. The trick is to wear one piece of neon and keep the rest of your outfit minimal and neutral. If you want to add pops of color to a neutral or more monochromatic looks, use accessories! Bags, Jewelry and Shoes are perfect to get this look without going overboard! Check out some of my favorite pieces below! Happy Wednesday!! We are almost to the weekend!

Private Screening for "Don't Trust the B in Apt 23."

Looking for a new show to get addicted to? Well, Don’t trust the B in Apt 23 is it! Last week I had the fabulous opportunity to attend a private showing of the first two episodes at the fabulous theater in the Tribeca Grand Hotel. The show’s two stars, Krysten Ritter and Dreama Walker were there to watch along with us! Both are so sweet and down to earth! With champagne and appetizers floating around, guests were able to mingle with the show’s creator and stars, as well as Alice & Olivia creator Stacey Bennett! Who looked fabulous in an A&O White Frock!  Krysten and Dreama were also looked fabulous in A&O dresses as well!
The show takes place in, where else, New York! Krysten plays “Chloe” the so called “B” in apartment 23, and she couldn’t be further from her character. Dreama plays “June” the naive Midwestern girl who rents the apartment with her. And ladies, for those of us old enough to remember Dawson’s Creek, James Vander Beek plays a self absorbed version of himself and best friend to Chloe. They all play really well off of each other and it makes you want to watch more to see what scheme or mess Chloe gets herself or June into next. Trust me; there are a lot of laughs and puns throughout the episodes. If you are in need of a good laugh and a show that makes you realize your life is great in comparison to these ladies, you have to watch this show.  So if your Wednesday nights are lacking in anything exciting, tune to ABC and get a few laughs at the expense of these crazy New Yorkers.

Krysten on the super cute step and repeat. Love that they had an "apt door!"

Krysten and Dreama talking about the show! Such Dolls!!

Spring Shopping Night with Jean-Michel Cazabat and Style Guru, Stacy London!

I gushed about how much I love JMC's Fall Collection here, and I was lucky enough to go check out his spring line last week! What's better than getting to see first hand the new shoes he has in store for spring? Getting personal style advice from the one and only style maven herself, Stacy London. She picked out over a dozen of her favorite styles that she said every girl must have in her closet. From snake skin pumps to yellow and blue color blocked platforms, spring is all about showing off those fabulous shoes. Step aside statement bag, the statement shoe is hot this Spring! Stacy also offered to give an explanation as to why she picked out each style of shoe. She said she started out with about 5 or 6 styles and just couldn't leave some out, so she just kept adding to already fabulous selection. Let me tell you, she is so fun and personable. She is like the best friend every girl needs when shopping!  At one point she took it upon herself to go get a pair of shoes for a customer! Guests were treated to champagne as they walked around to find the perfect pair of shoes for spring. Ladies, if you have read some previous posts, you know I keep talking about wedges, well, again you NEED to add them to your collection. They are THE shoe for spring/summer!

Styled just as fabulous as his shoe collection was Jean Michel.  Wearing a hot pink blazer, the designer was walking around talking to guests as well as signing the soles of shoes for some guests! EEK! How amazing is it to have the designer himself sign your new spring heels! 

Ready to shop for some spring shoes! 

JMC signing shoes for guests. LOVE his blazer! 

Stacy London was all about helping guests pick the perfect shoe for Spring. 

Platforms are still around and just as fabulous as ever! Obsessed with these! 

Don't these just scream maxi dresses and beach weekends? 

I love this pop of color on these snake skin pumps. Adds a little flair to your "work appropriate" shoe!

Color-Blocking at its best! What great color pairings, no? 

THIS is the universally perfect wedge! It will how with EVERYTHING in your closet! 

Blue Suede shoes, step aside! The Purple Suede is going full force for Spring.

Toms Spring Preview and Shoe Design Event

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to check out Toms Shoes showroom to see what they have in store for spring. And let me tell you, you NEED a pair of his new flats. I know, I know, we are heels girls around here, but if you are going to swap your 4 inchers for some flats, these are just too perfect.

I love what Toms Shoe Company stands for. Their one for one program is helping give shoes to the less fortunate. So with every pair you buy, Toms gives a pair to someone who needs them. So amazing right? For Spring you are going to see a few new style, like the fabulous wedge pictured below. I mean, how cute would these looks with shorts or  fun printed summer dress? There are several new printed classics as well as some funky patterns too. And we can't forget Toms new sunglasses line. There were so many great styles for both men and women. I am itching for summer to get here just looking at all the cool shades! 

Once I checked out the upcoming styles, I was given a pair of white classic Toms and told to design them however I wanted! EEK! This activity is something they are starting to incorporate in schools, youth centers, and organizations around the country. Getting kids involved in Toms purpose and organization is a great way to help them understand what they are doing and giving to others.  This was such a great idea. Although I had a blast chatting with other fellow "shoe designers," I must say creativity is something I am not always the best at. I think my patience starts to get the best of me. But I gave it a shot and came out with some basic albeit unique Toms. You could say I stuck with my College school spirit. I am actually pretty amazed that I was able to finish both shoes! But what girl turns down the chance to designer her own Toms? Not even this creatively-challanged fashionista. Sorry! 

Summer is almost here and you know comfort is essential on those hot summer months. I highly suggest you get your hands on a pair of toms for the season. You will kick yourself later if you don't. And my suggestion? The new wedge sandal, of course! 

How Cute are these Wedges?

My end result. Kept it simple and minimal with a little bling thrown in.

Happy Monday! Here's to a fabulous week! xo
