I seem to be somewhat obsessed with the color pink or any version of the color pink lately.  I think I have had a tremendous urge to be super feminine..which does not always come easy for me.  So I think Pink is the perfect color to add a touch of feminine flair to your look..  It's also just such a happy color..

Have you ever looked that the color pink and had feeling of depression?  NOPE!!

The Button Up
I love this top... such great elements..Button up, sheer, soft and over sized so there are a number of ways to wear it.  I decided to tuck it behind my belt to give it a sort of draped feel.

The Jeans
I have had my Love Story jeans for about three years...and I LOVE them..they are so amazing that J brand actually still sells them..pretty rare in this ever fleeting fashion industry.

Okay so all that know me know that I am not a huge fan of real fur..however this coat has been in my family since before I was born.  My grandma gave it to me years ago..  In the past I have been very conflicted about wearing it..but then I had a little chat with myself...  This is how I see it: 

This fur was made in a time where fur was a very acceptable piece of clothing.  The poor little guy was killed for's vintage and there is nothing I can do about it. However call me a hypocrite, but I would NEVER EVER buy a new fur coat.  Although beautiful it is very disturbing the way many animals are killed for their fur..especially white fur.  So if you already have a fur..I say honor that animal by wearing it..but from this day forward buy Faux!!

Okay those were my deeper thoughts of the day :)

The Pocket Book
Now to the H&M Pocket Book, which is actually not even mine..My darling friend Lauren Preston let me borrow it one day to wear on a last minute dinner I was headed to from her house and some how it has never made it back to her...that was like 6 months ago...Sorry Lauren!!  But I love it and I do wear it from time to time...Guilt ridden the whole time of course ;)  If you love it H&M has very similar ones right now that are just as here to see

The Wall
This Shepard Fairy May Day wall is so beautiful...There were a couple of choices to shoot in front of but this one on Melrose was a winner by far..  To buy a May Day poster print go to

On another note:  My bestie Courtney K has decided to move to New he will be moving in with me tomorrow for a month before he leaves.  (Sniffles)...but during this month there will be definite fun times.. I'll keep you posted..  

The Oscars are this Sunday and we are going to have a get together at casa Stuff She Likes.  I'll let you know how it goes..we have big plans to bake these insane Pumpkin Cheesecake cupcakes (click here for recipe). I will be tweeting a play by play.. wish us luck!!  
Oh and feel free to twitter me (here) if you decide to bake them..would love to know how they turn out!

Well all ...Have a fantastic weekend where ever you are...
