Victoria's Secret 2011 Fashion Show

Did you watch the Victoria's Secret 2011 Fashion Show? We had a pajama and jewelry viewing party with champagne and desserts - it was so much fun!

The show is always exciting and full of eye candy, from the sexy lingerie and intricate wings, to the gorgeous models and fabulous shoes...
 Giuseppe Zanotti designed most of the heels that rocked the VS runway on last night's show. What was your favorite pair? The thigh high boots were hot! 

 A few of my top looks:

Friday Eye Candy

Hello Friday! Friday after Turkey Day is about two things: shopping and/or relaxing. I took the relaxing route and boy does it feel good.

Spotted these a couple of weeks ago and instantly fell in love:

Wouldn't they be the perfect holiday shoes? The satin is gorgeous and I love the d'orsay cut. Plus the color is striking. 

Have a lovely weekend!!

Dinner Party Decor & DIY

 I successfully threw my very first dinner party on Saturday {I feel like such a grown-up} and had such a lovely time planning the decor and set-up. With the help of Bourbon & Bleu and Mint Love Social Club, I created a fabulous board on Pinterest to gather all of our inspirations and food ideas for Aaron's dinner.

Here are a few of our ideas that came to life:
Aaron Profile Toothpick Toppers
  • The oh-so creative Sarah Hearts has an amazing template for these babies
  • I used  Fotoflexer to remove the background from a profile pic I had of Aaron and  Pixlr to black out the image
  • Add the images to the template, print, cut and then glue to the toothpick... ta-da!  
  • Bacon wrapped dates never looked so awesome and Aaron loved them
Mason Jar Center Pieces 
  • Michael's Buys: Mason Jars, Raffia, Clear Beads and Floating Candles
  • Tie raffia bows around mason jar tops
  • Add beads to the bottom and fill water just below the jar lip
  • Top with floating candle and you have a simple and easy table decoration 
 Dirty Martini Bar & Apps Table
  • I was beyond inspired by Sunday Suppers Martini Bar for Aaron's birthday. He hearts dirty martinis so it only seemed natural to have a special cocktail section for him. Plus Dirty 30 just worked so well!
  • Ikea Buys: 3 Decanters and 6-12 Martini Glasses
  • Cost Plus World Market Buy: Chalkboard Stickers
  • Add chalkboard stickers and dirty martini ingredients to decanters: Vodka, Dry Vermouth and "Dirty" {Olive Juice}
  • I also added the martini recipe to a mini chalkboard for our guests. I think chalkboards and raffia may be my favorite decor items ever!
  • Don't you love the balloons and the tin bucket?!
  I can't wait to throw another shindig... Holiday party countdown begins now!

Shop My Look: Polka Dot Fun

It's amazing how versatile polka dots can be and I think everyone should rock them. Yesterday, I paired a big polka dot sweater with my new bright J. Crew flats. Sometimes a pop of color is all you need:

 {Lumiere Sweater from Hautelook, J. Crew Jeggings, J. Crew 'Cece' Flats in Tropical Green, Bracelet c/o Poshlocket 'Chloe'}

I've always been a fan of J. Crew flats and their new 'Cece' is no different. She is super comfy and simple- so perfect for work and busy weekends. Plus she comes in tons of fun colors!!

 The book includes shoes, shoes and more shoes displayed in intricate pop-ups and dramatic stills.

Do you see the "Hollywood" detail? There is actually a patchwork and sewn New York City themed left shoe to go with it! Bet you won't find a shoe like that anywhere else.
