Shoe of the week

So I may have to put these on my Christmas list for Santa, but I love these shoes! They are Prada hot pink patent loafers and I need them. How cute would they be with a pink turtleneck and black patent hangbag? I found these on Bluefly and they are having a fall sale... Score!

For those of us who cannot splurge on the Prada, (I know I can't) this Isaac Mizrahi for Target loafer gives you close to the same look for less. And by less I mean $29.99 and really it is just as cute!

Happy Shoe Shopping!

My new look

Monday Night Football

So it is true. I have jumped on the band wagon with Mr. Ralph Lauren in the yellow shirt to your right. I relate his obsession with football to mine of monogramming. I mean... it's totally ok that its me and the dog on Sundays......... and Mondays... alot of Saturdays... and the occasionally Thursday (SIGH). In years past I have gone to a few games and had a fabulous time. So yes, I can't believe that he has done this to me........ GOOOOOOOO EAGLES! E-A-G-L-E-S-EAGLES!! Now back to your regularly scheduled preppy.

Remembering Diana, Princess of Wales

Who can forget such a classic woman? August 31st, it was the day that shocked everyone in the world. People woke up in the morning with such an outpouring of grief. She always looked stunning and was a natural with fashion. From simplicity to glamour she set the fashion trends.

"I lead from the heart... someone's got to go out there and love people." -Princess Diana
