The Calm Before the Turkey

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! A day full of family, friends..and food of course! For those of you in America…you know the drill. Dress your best, show up at your aunt’s house, and eat. And then eat some more, and then some more. Don’t forget the pie.

So we all site down at a beautiful table and enjoy eachother’s company.

Bows Bows Bows

After a little visit to the Ted Baker shop in Scottsdale, I have refound my love for bows. My former roommate and friend, Kelsey and I had a love for bows ( and still do). We loved finding corny bows to wear around the holidays. Take us back to our childhood and all that. while at the Ted Baker shop, I saw a few pieces featuring some great bows, and thought I would devote a post to just that. Bows bows, and more bows.

First off, we have the awesomeness that is this sweater from Madewell.

And I love this Bandeau from Amourouse-$75.00

This headpiece from Mignonne Handmade is also one of my favorites! -$50.00

I love the color of these shoes from Ted Baker- $170

And if you ever have a chance to stop in a Ted Baker store… check out their Great Gatsby Inspired looks! So amazing!

And finally, I love the retro look of this hair bow from Oh Honey Hush- $14

That’s all for now! Have a beautiful night!

Oh Emmy Darling

OK I may be a bit behind on this, but I blame my insane schedule and sickness this last week. So here are some of my favorites from the Emmy Awards Red Carpet. 🙂  I loved the retro Hollywood glamour that so many of the looks evoked.

I Loved Ginnifer Goodwin’s vibrant Monique Lhuillier gown. Such a different take on line and texture, with such a simplistic silhouette. The perfect combo! Love!

Emily VanCamp rocked this grey pleated J. Mendel gown…simply stunning!  the intricate details make this absoutely gorgeous.

Of course, just about every time I see Tina Fey, I love her gowns she sports on the runway. I love her in this burgundy Vivienne Westwood gown. The beautiful gold embroidery adds the perfect touch of shine to this gorgeous gown.

And last but by no means the least, we have Leslie Mann in my favorite look of the night.  This retro inspired Naeem Kahn gown just pops. I love love love the lacy looking bodice and the bright mango colored skit together. Such a perfect look. And not to mention the pockets and the high bun…. any dress that has pockets is way beyond perfect. And well….I love high buns 🙂

Good night all!

❤ Amy

In that sort of obsessed kind of love

I have fallen in love with Marchesa. Just looking through some of her new resort 2013 collection, makes me fall deeper and deeper, head over heels with the gorgeousness that is Marchesa… Swoon with me why don’t you.

Have a lovely night!
