SJP Collection Shoes

SJP collection shoes

I know I am not the only girl out there who pulled out her iPad at midnight last night to check out Sarah Jessica Parker’s (the ultimate sweet pea and stiletto loving modern mommy!) SJP Shoe Collection at Nordstom… I fell in love with these online last night and today I popped over to Nordstrom on my lunch hour to try them on. So cute!! Love the ’70s vibe, the colors are just perfect together and I must say they were incredibly comfortable too. Not sure why she waiting so so so long to launch her new line but I must say it was worth the wait. Now I just need to decide if I should get the black and grey ones too…

 

Trina Turk Sale

Friday, September 6th, 2013

TRINA TURK PILLOW EMBROIDERED LINEN GEOMETRIC TILE BLACK TAN

I fell in love with Trina Turk the moment I stepped foot into her Palm Springs shop a decade or so ago. I was obsessed and just wanted everything in the store. The bold colors, the modern prints, the chic patterns, the whole mid-century California vibe just sucked me right in. In fact I literally wanted to move right in to the store and live there forever. I just loved how the floor was covered with these spectacular white pebbles and I still dream of the day I can redo the foyer of my home to look just like the shop. Until that day comes I can obsess about Trina Turk pillows and rugs and fabrics….

I just found out that one of Sweet Peas & Stilettos favorite partners, Layla Grayce, is offering a 15% off Trina Turk now through 9/30/13 so of course I had to spread the word. Here is the promo code to use: TRINA15. In addition, you can also save an additional 15% off already reduced sale items at Layla Grace with the promo code EXTRA15. Don’t miss your chance to shop furniture, home decor, fashion (super cute handbags & iPhone covers!), baby and more with prices as low as $5! I hope you find a few items you love at prices you adore. Happy Shopping!

High Heel High Tops

high-heel-high-top

 

I am not sure if I would actually wear these high tops but I found them to be rather fun and quite perfect for the stiletto loving woman who is not in the mood to actually wear a pair of heels. These Maison Dumain by Be&D Trompe L’Oeil High Top Sneakers are a great gift for the girl who has everything – including a sense of humor. Timing couldn’t be better – right now they are on clearance so you can save a bundle too.

Varca Sandals

varca-sandals

I certainly wasn’t expecting to find my next pair of must have shoes in the Wall Street Journal….but alas…I must thank the WSJ for spotlighting these wonderful Varca Sandals in their recent guide to summer. They are available in lots of vibrant colors and I think I will definitely need a pair of the silver ones too. I don’t know about you, but I don’t always want to put my toes on full display and I just love that a hint of your toes can get a little fresh air and you can still get away wearing them with your less than perfect pedicure. They even make them for kids too.

 

Calypso St Barth & Dot Complicated

calypso st barth

Last week I was thrilled to attend a pre-opening party for the new Calypso St. Barth store at Stanford
Shopping Center in Palo Alto. It was a festive evening of pretty clothes, pink bubbly, delicious cookies
and an entertaining panel conversation featuring media mogul in the making Randi Zuckerberg, pinner
extraordinaire Christine Martinez, and super blogger Erica Chan Coffman of Honestly ….WTF.

calypso-st-barths-2

Let’s start with the clothes. The new collection at Calypso St. Barth was absolutely wonderful. Lots
of very wearable clothes perfect for sunny vacations and lazy weekends. There were also a number
of pieces that I thought would be great for going out to dinner with friends. I loved the neutral colors
and attention to detail. The designs are all inspired by travel and the arts so each piece has a unique,
international feel to it. Step foot in the store and you will immediately want to start planning your
summer vacation…

If you haven’t heard of Randi Zuckerberg yet, I am certain you will very very soon. Randi is a busy working
mom who happens to be bright, enthusiastic and incredibly likable. She and her team have recently
launched a new venture, Dot Complicated. Their weekly newsletters are full of insightful ideas for

many ways and Dot Complicated is here to help us all navigate our way through it all. Sign up for their

Power Pinner and Author, Christine Martinez, was a sheer delight. She happens to be one of the most
popular pinners on Pinterest with millions of followers. She is also the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Pinterest Marketing and writes her trendsetting blog Miles to Styles, named after her pup Miles. Christine was really inspiring because she seemed to be so genuine and true to herself.

Salvatore Ferragamo Shoe Jewelry

salvatore-ferragamo-shoe-necklace

How fabulous is this Salvatore Farragamo shoe charm? I must have one. It is from their Miniature Precious Collection and is made of 18k gold and gemstones. Believe it or not, but this iconic rainbow shoe was created way back in 1938 for Judy Garland. I have had a postcard of this famous shoe in my office for years and I just love the idea of being able to wear it around my neck.  There are a number of other great shoes in the jewelry collection including these three below. Perfect gifts for shoe loving girls who have everything…

Weekend Getaway Travel Bags

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

weekend-bag

 

I am a huge fan of the weekend getaway. In fact, the last 3 or 4 weekends we have found ourselves traveling for quick little getaways. Our favorite spot is Carmel since it is so close to our home, yet we feel like we are a million miles away. The trick is figuring out what to pack and not taking too much. I try to pack as light as possible so unpacking will be a snap. The trick is finding the perfect bag. I found these wonderful travel bags at Layla Grace.

white-gold-weekend-tote

 

These two very different tote bags are great options. This white and gold stripe leather market tote is perfect for a spring getaway. The large opening makes it easy to pile in the clothes. It has a great modern look. I also love the Petunia Pickle Bottom Organic  Wistful Weekender Dancing Daisies bag too.   It comes in so many of their wonderful, cheerful patterns.

And all weekend long (3/30-3/31) Layla Grayce is offering free shipping with promo code FREESHIP on your entire purchase. Maybe you will find a few things to put into your new note too.

Layla Grace Apparel Sale

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

ELLA MOSS STELLA TIE FRONT POPPY TOP

I get a lot of questions from women asking me about my favorite maternity clothes. Back a number of years ago when I was pregnant with my son there were not nearly as many options for cute maternity wear as there are today. I actually shopped at Forever 21 for a lot of the tops I wore throughout my pregnancy. One thing you will notice if you open any magazine is that there are a lot of celebrities who wear ‘regular’ clothes while they are pregnant too. Of course, you want elastic waist bands ASAP, but I always tell people to look for stylish tops right off the racks of their favorite stores. It might be easier than you think to find great transitional clothes – especially for those first few months. Some tops will also work great after you have had your child when your stomach is adjusting back to its former state. At that point you are no longer pregnant so it seems a little weird to still be wearing maternity clothes. Though it is hard to give up all that elastic!

I was checking out the sale going on now through March 31st at Layla Grayce (you can save 20% off all apparel with promo code style20) and I found a lot of great pieces that would fit the bill for newly pregnant women and for anyone looking to keep their little waist top secret.

WAVERLY GREY LEI LEI BLUE & WHITE TOP
The red top above is the Ella Moss Stella Tie Front Poppy Top. Don’t you love that color?  I also thought this Waverly Grey Lei Lei Blue & White Top would be perfect for work or evenings out. The simple detail at the neckline will hopefully draw attention away from your tummy. They also have a number of pretty scarves that are perfect to layer over t-shirts.

Don’t miss your chance to shop this fabulous sale! Go check out Layla Grayce today to see if there is anything you can’t live without…
