This or That: Volume 3

This might be my favorite game, ever. As illustrated by my third installment of interiors vs. fashion!  So let’s take a peek at the pairings….

Malachite is still hot- just check out these drapes and this budget-busting Monique Lhuillier gown!

I wish I had the balls to get a pink sofa like this- but I have a husband I’d like to keep.  Instead I’m eying this pink wallet– perhaps a birthday gift por moi?

I actually am not a big fan of red in interiors.  But this sofa kinda slays me.  And this great blazer does too. Both look great paired with deep inky blue!  I’m so ready for fall!

Abstract art, like this print from Lindsay Cowles (check out her amazing selection of affordable canvas prints now available) doesn’t have to stay only on walls- they look great as dresses too!

I spent last night wishing I was drinking wine at a cafe in Paris.  Then I saw this top aptly named “Wine and Dine Outdoors”– with a print of ladies imbibing cafe-style and it made me smile. Would look SO cute with skinny jeans and cute black ballet flats!

Love the upholstery on this chair? Then you probably also love this amaze striped Claire Vivier tote!

More red! What is the deal with me today? But I do love red and purple together and these Tory smoking slippers are just WAY WAY too awesome!!!

Ahhhh, now HERE is my palette. Black, white and tan with lots o’ gold.  Sleek and simple- just like this awesome jumpsuit (that’s under $90 too!)  If only it weren’t for my freakishly long torso (like, circus freak sideshow long).

Everyone’s favorite zebra wallpaper is now a blouse from C.Wonder (available in red and white too!)

DUH. This one is super obvious coming from me but that dress is pretty damn cute for fall.

More DUH. Black and white stripes will be my jam until I’m in a wheelchair. These shoes are pretty amazing, right?

  1. No one, and I mean no one, was as excited as I was when the new summer swim team suits arrived for the kiddos and they were an emerald malachite. Hot!

  2. That last comment made me LOL. You are so funny.

    On the birthday front: if you haven’t discovered Stephanie Johnson’s line of elegant travel cosmetic bags, you are missing out big time. While the line is very pricey, Stephanie knocks fashion meets function out of the park.

    This leopard number is another “Duh” for Erin’s b/day and a major bargain to boot:

  3. You are just so fun to read-thank you for the fabulous style tips and humor! And happy birthday! (I’m a Leo, too-the big 40 on Saturday!)

  4. These are my favorite posts! Buying the jumpsuit – thanks for helping me spend my $$$! Happy Birthday Erin!

  5. The red leather chesterfield is killer with the navy walls & the outfit paired is perfect too! Loved it all.

  6. The “freakishly long torso” comment cracks me up… it’s the exact way I’ve described mine for years! Constantly looking for tops that are long enough and dresses with waists that don’t hit in the wrong spot. You’re not alone! :)
