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…

TOMS Black Wool Stripe Women's Nepal Boots


With fall right around the corner it is time to shop for a new pair of boots. I’ve been on the hunt for some super comfortable everyday boots and I think I found exactly what I am looking for at TOMS. These wonderful Black Wool Stripe Women’s Nepal Boots will keep your toes warm all winter long with a super soft fleece lining. And how cool is the combination of suede, wool and moccasin-inspired whip stitching? This just might be the season to let your Uggs take a little rest on your closet floor…

Trina Turk Decorative Pillows

Monday, July 15th, 2013

I’ve been looking to find some summer color to help brighten up my family room and our very large grey couch and it looks like finally found was I was looking for tonight. I just love the fabulous colors of these Trina Turk decorative pillows. They are available at Layla Grace in case you want to pick up one or two for yourself.

High Heel High Tops

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013



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

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013


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.

Kids' Kiko+™ ashiato animal footprint toy sandals


Looking for a little summer fun for the kids? How cool are these Kiko+™ ashiato animal footprint toy sandals? I just stumbled across them in the lastest J. Crew catalog and was immediately smitten. Your kids can make super fun foot prints while they walk up and down the beach. You can pick them up in monkey, cat and dinosaur versions online at J. Crew and your children will be able to create a whole zoo on the sand. They would also make great summer birthday gifts for boys and girls alike.

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.


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…

Salvatore Ferragamo Shoe Jewelry

Sunday, April 14th, 2013


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…
