Some Things Making Me Happy

Yeojin Bae Sale

Some of you may remember when I posted this Yeojin Bae dress back in January.  I was pretty gaga about it then, and I still am today.  Good news is that it's now 50% off!  I won't lie though, it's still a hefty price tag. 


If you're looking for a special dress, this is it.  Trust me.  And in baby bump friendly news, I think this Yeojin Bae Mimi dress is a beauty.  It's 50% off too.

High Heels & 2 Wheels


My friend Erin ditched her car a year ago to prove that you can get around Charleston, SC (which is generally considered to not be bike friendly) on a bike.  She's been documenting her experiences on her blog, High Heels and Two Wheels.  What makes this story extra special is that she's a super hero fashionista who always wears super high heels... on her bike!  Erin recently met up with another friend of mine, the incredibly talented photographer Charlotte Elizabeth, for a 1 year blogging anniversary photoshoot of sorts.  What they made was magic. 


Congrats on your anniversary Erin!

I'm A Winner

I rarely ever win giveaways.  But my luck has changed because I won a GOOD one!  Lily over at Gold & Gray (you read her blog right? She's fantastic!) just announced that I won the brass sea urchin/wall art thingie!  Yay!



Thanks so much for rigging that giveaway, Lily! Just kidding...

Zara's U.S. E-Commerce Site

Have you heard the news?  Probably, it's being splashed everywhere.  But I am STOKED that Zara is finally launching online shopping here in the U.S. on September 7th.  Hallelujah.


Happy Thursday, Everyone!
