Still crazed for MBMJ Flights of Fancy?

I've been reading everywhere that the line Flights of Fancy (Marc by Marc Jacobs) is impossible to find. Difficult, yes, but impossible, no. Some items are even on sale. Now's probably your last chance to grab what's left in this line.

You can nab the key chain and mirror at although they are not on sale:

And as luck would have it, the lovely cat shoulder bag just happens to be 50% off at Net-a-Porter.

Where's our winter rain when you want it?

There is a plethora of great boots available this season. Something for everyone. Although the sales aren't as scandalous as they were last year (ah, remember Saks at 70% off?), style has not been omitted. Most encouraging is the fact that designers are coming to grips with the fact that their customers (aka non models) have calves wider than #2 pencils. I continue to be impressed with what Gucci has been churning out and I am anxiously awaiting two more pairs of boots from the sale on the website. A lot has been sold out already so I'm glad I acted fast. The first is the Devendre and the second is the Prato (which I've also seen at Saks).

Oh lolly lolly pop

I didn't notice this scarf at first on the Gucci website. But isn't it the cutest thing? Anything that combines fashion + food is good in my book. And even better it's on sale on the Gucci website. I can't wait for this one to arrive in the mail.

Holiday sweater time

I know I have to be over loud holiday printed sweaters. I always thought they were cute but now I have learned that they are not necessarily the most chic looking thing to wear for holiday gatherings. This year I found a not-so-boring cashmere sweater that has a little bit of interest, just enough to give it some life. These sweaters are available at Macy's.

Hello, Lori? Yes, it's me, Marc ... again.

I have succumbed yet again to Marc Jacobs and his charms (or should I say his bags). His more affordable line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, continues to keep my attention. At the last Neiman Marcus Mid-day Dash, I came across yet another bag at a fabulous price that needed to be added to my collection. I've never had this many Marc Jacobs bags at one time. I'm going to run out of room soon. Time to expand the closet! This one is called the Classic Q Hillier Hobo in Electric Violet.

The cat's on the bag, and maybe out of the bag

I've really taken a liking to Marc Jacobs. His style is very whimsical. I fully expect him to be drafted for a budget priced line for Target within five years. Until then, he keeps on hitting the nail on the head with interesting designs that somehow other fashion houses miss, or think that they can't pull off. This is another piece of his animal line that came out recently. Currently available at Net-a-Porter.

Pass the Sugar

I never liked body scrubs much, they were either too grainy or too rough on my skin. What used to be easy to take care of skin is now sensitive, dry and dull. Hence the necessity for body scrubs. I've tried just about every brand out there and I think Fresh has the best one. The consistency reminds me of natural peanut butter -- the "sugar" part of the scrub can sink to the bottom while the moisturizing oils rise to the top. Don't let this fool you, though; separation is less than a minor annoyance. Try Brown Sugar Body Polish by Fresh, you can find it at Sephora.
