Snazzy & Sweet

Here's what makes me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

Sparkly Burberry Trench - I think YES! / Essie Chinchilly / Recent birthday acquisitions from Flyboy - Jess LC Tote & Pouch, Hang in There Necklace / Candied Apple Note Card / Adorkable Elephant - Tell me you're smiling! / Penny Loafers

I saw this costume idea on Refinery 29 and fell in love. I'm SO banking this idea for a future Halloween. I'd love an excuse to get wrapped up in colorful ribbons of crepe paper. Who wouldn't? This year, I'll probably just snuggle up on the couch and be engrossed in another episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. This season is getting intense!

Rockin' the Art World: I watched a segment on 60 Minutes a few weeks ago, and now I can't wait to read this new book about the life of van Gogh. Vincent holds a special place in my heart -- he was my first art love! Yes, I was brought to tears in middle school when I walked into the van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and saw Sunflowers for the first time. Let's say I've always been "emotionally aware."

Can you tell that my ticket stub has been loved? It's taken center stage on many bulletin boards and collages over the years. October 23, 1999, was a day that I'll never forget.
Pin It!


  1. I am DYING over that sparkly trench!

  2. Ashley - LOVE your blog. I'm pretty sure we would be friends. Love the pinata costume, in particular.

  3. Love the sparkly trench. It would go with the sparkly stocking cap Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex and the City the movie (I watch it frequently for background noise). I am now on a mission to find a sparkly hat like that for this winter.

  4. Your comments made my day, ladies! Julia, can we help you find a sparkly cap? And Rachel, I definitely think we would be best friends:)
