More on the derby


So I have another dress that I am eyeing for the derby. . it's a Diane von Furstenberg silf chiffon dress (on the left) Then of course, there is the Kate Spade polka dot dress. Both of these are en route to me now, so I can see them both in person. Once I get them, I will post actual pictures. Ahh decisions decisions! Oh and the first day (the Oaks) isn't AS fancy as the actual Derby, so I think I will wear a pastel DVF wrap dress for that day.

Derby Dress

So I think I changed my mind and am going with this dress for the big day at the Derby:

This is also a Kate Spade dress. Same cut, just a different pattern. It is a light pink, you just can't really tell from the picture. What do you think of this one?

Also, I will be attending both days of the Derby. Of course the second day is the BIG one, but I think people still dress up on the first day. Here is what I am thinking about for day one. Is this fancy enough? Any one know?

This is a Trina Turk dress. Thanks for your advice!

J.Crew Lilac Shift Dress Review

So I finally got around to taking a picture of this (pup and husband were in bed early last night). I ordered an XXS. I usually wear a 0/XS in J.Crew (since XXS is rarely an option). I'd say it fits me pretty well in the body. I am not swimming in it, which is always nice. It is on the short side, but I don't think it's TOO short. What do you think? Sorry for the poor quality picture taken with my phone :

Here is the J.Crew model:

It is a very pretty dress. I tried it on with gladiators and a navy cardigan. I can't wait to wear it!

Weekend Trip to SF!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine flew by way too quickly, as usual! I took a short trip up north to San Francisco. I had so much fun! I stayed right by Union Square, so there was plenty of shopping and eating nearby! On Saturday I did some shopping and brought home these 2 beauties with me:

J.Crew Zebra Cardigan

Tory Burch Dickie Sweater
I also ate some fabulous Chinese food, rode the Cable Cars, and walked around Fisherman's Wharf. I hope everyone else had a great weekend too!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I apologize that this post is so long overdue. Sometimes I don't know where the time goes and how things fly by so quickly!! It's already Wednesday some how! And even better, it's St. Patrick's Day! I hope you remembered to wear your green today! Since I am part Irish, you know I am wearing mine :)

I have plenty of new purchases I want to share with you, some of which are my favs (Tory Burch, J.Crew). I need to be a less lazy blogger and take some pictures. For now, I will share with you my new baby (other than Mr. Winston):

Yep, I bought a YSL Muse Bag! It is a gorgeous navy color (not as bright as it looks in the picture). I bought the large size in Indigo. LOVE IT. I know it's been out for a while, but I can see why it's still so popular.

Winston's First Trip to the Beach

Last weekend we introduced Winston to the beach. He wasn't so sure about the waves, even though he LOVES water! He was definitely curious though!
