Stripes & Leopard

Today was the last day of the semester! Yippee!  Summer has officially begun. Super stoked.

I received this adorable dress from a lovely online boutique called Conversation Pieces (thanks Audrey!).  You would think I'm a fool to sport a bold horizontal stripe with such a shapely figure, but I think this dress flatters my figure just fine. Don't you? (you can be honest, I won't hate you, hehe.)  I love the bold stripe and the tank style definitely helps me beat the Lahaina heat!  I couldn't resist pairing the dress with my trusty leopard flats.  Stripes and leopard are one of my favorite combos.  Surely this dress will be well loved and worn during the summer.  Although this dress is no longer available on CP's website, there are so many other great choices.  Head on over and stock up on adorable little numbers for the summer!!  Thanks again, Audrey (and the rest of the gang at Conversation Pieces).

sunnies: Rayban | watch: Michael Kors | bracelets: vintage, fresh water pearls, BR, Wendy Mink, Bamboo Sky}

Love, S

Hi Lynn!! Yes, I'd have to agree on the bag quality... but since it's not real leather, I'm okay with it. hehe. I still get lots of compliments when I wear it out. :) Hope you're having a great day!

I am in dire need celine outlet shop of a new bag, and celine bag with summer literally knocking Celine Luggage Tote on our door, I'm going to need a good tote for the pool, beach and general carrying (don't you find yourself lugging more stuff around in the summer? )#). I mentioned Deux Lux before, when Oprah put one of their bags on her Favorite Things list. Well lucky me, I ended up getting that Celine Luggage bags bag for Christmas and I love it. It's sturdy, roomy and fun. So when I stumbled on the line's Celine Boston Bag beach totes, I was excited at the prospect of having a little sparkle with me at the beach.
