Party Skirts


When it comes to my wardrobe, skirts are my best weapon. They give me the flexibility to switch up my look by dressing them up or down. Here are some of my favorite party skirts heading into holiday season. And you know, you can totally wear all of these with even a little white tee.

And speaking of holiday parties, I hope to see some of you at the Cynthia Rowley party tonight. What do you wanna bet I'll be in sequins and this?

How fun are those Blush Papiers?? And if you have a lot of girls on your shopping list then consider buying some gift packages and divvying them up!

Caitlin Wilson Textiles Review & Giveaway!!


I've fallen in love with my new mustard deco pillows that my friend Caitlin Wilson sent my way. They're kinda perfect, no?

For a hot second I considered them in our guest bedroom. But then realized that was ridiculous because they'd be enjoyed so little all hidden up in there (though they do look pretty, perhaps i need more).

So back down the stairs they came.

And there they will stay. They're the most perfect go anywhere color and are made well with a zipper closure. Giddy. All of Caitlin's textiles are beautiful. Like her. That's her gorgeous self down there!

She also just debuted a limited edition 2012 Holiday Gold Collection!

The gold fleur pillow is especially stunning.
And in honor of the giving season, Caitlin is giving away one of her border pillow covers to one lucky reader!!  


Caitlin's textile collection has a lot of different colors and sizes, so go to her site to check them out and come back here and tell me what color and size you want!

Artist Crush: Sarah Boyts Yoder


Hey, did y'all have a good Thanksgiving? Our was wonderful. We spent time with family up in Kentucky and Indiana and I ate my weight. For real. We also took Lilly on the Polar Express train ride in French Lick, IN. I mean, it couldn't have been cuter- complete with the hot chocolate song, dancing with elves, and the North Pole. You can see a couple of the pictures on my instagram widget over on the right.

So today I want to share more of my friend Sarah Boyts Yoder's art work. I've spoken of her before, and I'm crazy obsessed with her latest mixed media collection.


And here's Sarah with her husband. Isn't she gorgeous?

Her artwork is so freaking fun and good. I snapped these photos below at the Michael Mitchell Gallery here in Charleston. Get ready to fall in love. The crosses and little bottoms just get me.


How fun is the bun a la Georgia O'Keeffe?


I wanna buy 'em all up and plaster them all over my house. What do you think? 

You can check out more of Sarah's work here on her site.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Can we please talk about the new collection Erin Gates and Jill Rosenwald just released?
Holy mackerel it's divine. Job well done, ladies.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had a play date at my house yesterday and served the new Sociale Mocktail lavender martini (you can just add spirits). You all know I love my lavender martinis. This was really good. And considering I didn't have to make lavender syrup I call it a winner. I can't wait to try the other flavors.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Apparently Refinery29's beauty editor Megan McIntyre (who has tried pretty much every product) swears by Laura Mercier's Kohl Eye Pencil. I really want to try the Black and Gold combination and the Antique Jade shade.
But oh I don't know, perhaps I should spring for this Caudalie VinoPerfect Correcting Fluid instead. My friend Danielle just sent me this picture of what I'll look like in 2044...


Um, whoa. You can see what you'll look like with the Aging Booth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, I saw somewhere this quote that says something about how ridiculous it is to be thankful one day and then to stand in line the very next day on Black Friday to buy stuff. Agreed. Just shop online... early ;)

So I wanted to share my favorite early Black Friday deals...


Holy guacamole - use the code Black75 for 75% off. So many pretty rugs on that site. And look, I found one like the type I posted yesterday.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Now through Cyper Monday use this BIGEVENT12 code to get hella good early savings (you know, before they sell out)!



I'd like to start with this Tibi dress. And look, she's wearing my L.A.M.B Oxley Pumps!!


Shop Now!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Save 25% off any order over $100 using the code "happy" at checkout! Happy Happy!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lastly, I'm offering 20% off in my shop through Cyber Monday :) Use the code "passtheturkeybitches" at checkout. xoxo

Lately


Thanks to my friend Calder I've been drooling over Felt's rugs. Can you even believe them?


I really want to spread them all over my house. Perfection. Also a little pricey (yes I checked into it). Bummer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've yet to see it in person, but apparently my art shop is featured in Style At Home Magazine's December issue.

That's one of my pieces right up there in the top left. Booyah. Pretty pumped about this. The crazy talented Christine wrote this piece and I'm honored to be a part of the group. Have you seen her shop? Crazy good. If you want to see the issue, look for this on your newsstands. Thanks, Christine!!

On Sunday we threw a birthday party for both Lilly and Fletcher (their birthdays are only 2 weeks apart). It was so much fun to have the house filled with friends and family (complete chaos in case you're wondering).  At one point while we were getting everything ready I laughed because it was Josh and my's wedding anniversary. It's pretty much about the kids now, huh Josh? That's alright by me. Our family makes me the happiest and luckiest girl in the world. Happy Anniversary, Love.

Winnie the Pooh is a sweet lil guy. My father in law shared this quote at our rehearsal dinner. I found this cute card here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One last note for my local readers - please join us next Thursday at the gorgeous Cynthia Rowley store on lower King for a girl's night out :) It'll be a good time. Pinky swear.
