I love the color red. My favorite sweater is red. Favorite coat – red. Favorite handbag? Gazpacho. (In layman’s terms – RED). I also don’t hate Taylor Swift. And there’s just something about red nail polish and red lipstick that is always RIGHT. Amiright?

With the holidays growing ever closer it just makes me want to surround myself with cozy red coats and holly jolly party dresses. And a glass or three of wine. Red wine.



P.S. If you’re like me and really like red, you’ll probably like this Pinterest Board.

The Voracious Vegas Money-eating Monster {Happy Ending}

When you think Las Vegas, chances are you think of gambling, exotic dancers, obnoxious lights and lots of MONEY. People visit The Vegas and spend lots of money. That’s just how the system works. Fancy hotels, restaurants, entertainment…$$$…just throw money at anything and everything.
(Edited with Instagram…If you don’t have that app you NEED it)

A week in Las Vegas is far too long–no one has the money or energy for that. Except us. We stepped off the plane at LAS to prove everyone wrong. By day three, through my  penny-pinching techniques, I was doing quite well at not depleting all my funds to the voracious Vegas money-eating monster.

That all changed when I stepped into J. Crew. We were greeted with the joyous news of a surprise sale! It was a surprise, of course, because if it had been planned I would’ve known about it. But this, was a BIG surprise and an even BIGGER sale. Seriously, an additional 50% off sale items, when does that ever happen?!

You’re right, it occasionally happens on Black Friday or the day after Christmas, but even those days have been scaled back to 40%. This was better yet. As it so happens, Las Vegas shoppers, ironically, do not want to touch J. Crew with a 10-foot {stripper} pole.  So everything that hit the store 3 weeks ago was gracefully swept to the sale section. As a seasoned JCR girl, I geeked out at the amazing selection of sale items, in each and every size and color. WOW.

I was overcome with joy. I loaded up on spring essentials. And belts. And a pretty little dress. And the hot pink items I blogged about a few weeks ago but didn’t actually purchase at full price. I was triumphant and gladly forked over my credit card because instead of feeding this dough to a sassy slot machine, I was feeding my J. Crew addiction, and it was much more satisfying.

In all, I did did succumb to spendiness in Las Vegas. But, unlike any other Vegas visitor, my biggest purchase was at J. Crew. Call me pathetic, but I think it was perfect. Almost dream-like.
