I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Is anyone going to do any Black Friday shopping tomorrow? I think I am going to avoid it, but this is something I would wear if I was going to hit up the mall.
My birthday was a few weeks ago and I definitely lucked out in the jewelry department. I received 2 pairs of nOir earrings, a nOir bangle, a nOir ring, a cocktail ring, and I won a pair of earrings through Fash Boulevard.
I am storing it all in a little Limoges dish I found at the thrift store yesterday for $1. It has tiny hand-painted ladybugs which I love.
This week's Friday's Fancies is about pattern mix and matching. John and I will be attending a wedding this weekend, so I created two outfits that would be fun to dress up in. My pattern mixing is on the subtle side, but I love how both clutches look with the dresses.
And now on to the winner. The winner of the Stella & Dot earrings is Breezer. Congrats! I will email you for your information.
When we purchased our home, we had the chance to buy some of the furniture from the previous owners. When John and I first looked at the house I had noticed a vintage dress form in the attic, and I was excited when the owners agreed to sell it to me. I almost feel like it belonged to the original owners of the house!
Right now I am using the dress form for extra jewelry storage. All pieces are Stella & Dot. Speaking of, don't forget to enter my giveaway if you have not already done so. Only 3 days left!
I found this picture of Rose Bryne and thought, "Hey I have that blazer too!" (mine is from the Salvation Army). I decided to pair mine with a white tee, brown boots from DSW, Stella & Dot jewelry, and a vintage charm bracelet. I love the peachy color of the lining so I made sure to cuff the jacket to show it off.
For the end of the week, it is all about GOLD! This weeks Friday's Fancies is "A Golden Anniversary" in honor of its 50th week. This is an outfit that I would love to wear to an upcoming holiday party. Gold and sparkly... my fav.
In honor of the upcoming holiday season, I am giving away one pair of Goddess Teardrop Earrings from the Stella & Dot Holiday Collection to one lucky reader. Rose gold is a huge trend right now, and these earrings will be perfect for all of your upcoming holiday parties.

John and I purchased a big old house. I love older homes, but it means a lot of our money has to go into fixing the house instead of decor. Therefore, I have been trying to snap up pieces at local thrift stores, antique stores and estate sales. Here are some of my favorite items so far.
Here is our "formal" living room (completely bare of furniture). Please ignore the gross screen on the fireplace. I thought I threw it away, but its mysteriously back. I picked up the rug for $40 at a local antique mall.
A mirror I picked up for $20 from the thrift store. I think its pretty old, but I am not 100% sure.
A reproduction poster I purchased for $12.50 (frame included) at another local antique mall.
Pretty green glass candlesticks from the thrift store. $3 each.
A vintage blue glass I turned into a vase. I picked this up at an estate sale for $2.
Hi guys! Sorry I have been MIA lately. I have been reading all your comments, though, and promise to get back to regular blogging soon. The reason I have been so busy is that John and I just purchased our first house and we moved in last week! I have been spending my days unpacking, etc. I will show some interior pics soon :)
