Jewelry Porn: My dream come true

I must admit, I’ve been infatuated before. I’ve had a crush. I’ve daydreamed and night-dreamed and thought about it before. But..I think I’m head over heels about this one. I’m talking about jewelry people!


These are estate diamond stacking bands from the Paris Hotel Boutique! {this is glamorous} is giving this one away… I die.

Look at how gorgeous they are!

After further research, they are actually affordable. Official, full-on, jewelry lust. Feast your eyes here.

I don’t think this one is meant to be stacked but it honestly looks like a steal at $345. Also, it’s a princess ring which I totes identify with.

Paris Hotel Boutique – where have you been all my life?

Diane Kruger & Dog dresses

Found out today via Garance Dore that Diane Kruger is her own stylist/make-up artist/hair-stylist… this only furthers my slight obsession with her and her style choices. She is just STUN.

PS: I have secretly been perusing dog dresses/swimsuits. Ridiculous, I know. But some of them are super fun. If you’re interested…here is the cutest little tutu. Not sure if Birdie needs one but she sure would look cute!

Somehow she got out of the fence today. R & I were freaking but some nice neighbor got her and her Aunt Lauren and Aunt Lindsay rescued the bad little puppy. Here she is with her sister, Georgie.

SATC: Carrie’s best looks

Thanks to Instyle for sharing their favorite “Carrie” looks. They have the Top Ten, the craziest and the best of the rest.  I had to include a few of my own…

They have this one in the best of the rest category, but I have to put it in my personal top 10. I loved this look!!

The Masterfully Mixed Outfit

The sequined caftan from the playboy party! I die. Only SJP/Carrie could pull this off.

Carrie’s “Cover-Up”

SJP as Audrey Hepburn. Love this look and how beautiful she looks when she ultimately has to let Aidan down.

The Engagement Ring Necklace

I love this look, not too crazy about the sweater but more the empowerment/compromise that she and Aidan land on when she cleans out her closet to make room for him. Plus, I love the hair.

More from the beautiful backyard wedding

I must share these photos from the wedding in the delta, mentioned here and here. It was lovely and fun and seemed so effortless, although I’m sure it wasn’t! It all took place on Lake Chicot in Robert’s hometown of Lake Village. There are so many dying towns in South Arkansas but this doesn’t feel like one of them. The people are friendly, they know how to throw a party and they eat hella good.

The backyard, tables, flowers and lake.

The bride’s father, Mr. Paul, fished out a hat that had gone astray.

Jewelry Porn: Rings by IOSSELLIANI

Love stackable rings. These by iosselliani are beautiful and exotic, plus they’re expensive but not un-affordable. I noticed them first on {this is glamorous}. Check. It. Out.

And my fave

They also have gorgeous necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

For a much more affordable versions:

Dessert to Dress: Sweet, Sweet Summer

I don’t know what it is but I am currently feeling the love for sweets. I want chocolate, I want “real” cokes, I want cookies and cakes and petit fours and whatever I can get my hands on. I thought I would try to transition my craving for calories into outfit inspirations. Some of my favorite blogs do ‘Rooms to Outfit’, so I’m going to do ‘Dessert to Dress’
