I [wished I] bought it: Kate Spade Etta coat

You know how people tell you to wait before making a purchase? How most of the time, if you don’t buy it, later you’ll be glad you didn’t spend the money.

I wish I felt that way about Kate Spade‘s Etta coat.

I bought it

Actually, I bought them. Two cocktail dresses. I went looking for one dress for my company’s upcoming holiday party but the prices were so good that I bought two. Total damage with sales and a Lord & Taylor coupon: $220.

First option is this silver number from Anne Klein.

Yes, it’s pink. Very pink.

I love it. And I want it.

A google image search makes me think it is an Urban Outfitters settee–which is backordered, of course.

Has anyone bought furniture from Urban Outfitters before? If so, how’s the quality?

Guest post: @eimski on colored wedding gowns

Here’s the third in a series of guest posts from the wonderful Eimear.

While visiting @1chicklette a few months back, we discussed pink wedding dresses and she suggested that I write a guest post for her on them. Lo and behold less than two weeks later, Jessica Biel married Justin Timberlake in pink, and posed for the cover with her new husband nearly kicking her in the head and making this post all the more relevant.

(Did anybody else find it funny that People put Britney on the cover as well??)

Colored gowns have been in vogue for years. During World War I and II and in the post war periods, many brides could not afford expensive and elaborate lace and silk white gowns and many turned to colored dresses and smart suits. My own grandmother married my grandfather in a pale blue/gray suit nearly seventy years ago. When I got married off white was the color to have–mine was a cream, lace concoction). It seems more and more brides these days are embracing the color trend for their big day.

Here are my best and worst celebrity colored gowns. Continue reading

My sparkly shoes

When I Instagrammed this pic, a few of you asked about my sparkly shoes.

They are the Brochet flat by Enzo Angiolini. I bought mine a few months ago, but Lord & Taylor still has a few pairs (albeit in limited sizes).

L&T calls the color purple, however in person they are definitely closer to pink. Here are two views to make that point.

Like most flats, these don’t offer much, if any, arch support. When I’m not too lazy, I pop in some inserts from Good Feet.

If you shop online at L&T today (Saturday, October 27) you can receive 25% off with the promo code ONEDAY. Shipping is also free. Exceptions apply.
