Consign Me Up

I had a great weekend at home spending time with Mom and enjoying the sunny weather.  On Saturday, Mom and I headed to a consignment store.  I LOVE consignments!  One woman's trash is another woman's (my) treasure.  I was picking through the shoe rack when I spotted some leopard print wedges with two unmistakeable red soles.  I snatched up the shoes and, to my disbelief, they fit and were in nearly perfect condition.  Best of all, they were priced at more than half retail cost- what a snag! I am now the proud owner of my first (and most likely last) pair of Christian Louboutins!  

On Sunday, Will and I passed through Richmond to visit Jessica and her boyfriend Jon.  Jess suggested that we eat at Can-Can, an authentic brasserie in Carytown.  The menu featured all the signature French dishes from crepes to croque monsieurs... Yummy!  After lunch, we took advantage of the gorgeous weather and strolled up and down Cary Street window shopping and people watching.  I hadn't been to Richmond in quite some time and had almost forgotten how charming some parts of the city were.  It was a very enjoyable pit stop, and I am looking forward to another double date soon!


Look at this adorable furniture store!

.....Must Have.....

I made the mistake of visiting the Kate Spade Outlet a few weeks back.  Since then, I have not been able to forget Spade's Washington Mews bags.  The Mews line comes in two styles, the Maryanne and the Marcela.  Spade is known for her playful yet refined taste and her eye-popping color palates.   My two favorite colors in this particular line are the Deep Ochre and Peacock.  Staying true to playful and tasteful form, Kate Spade proves that she can make even the most eccentric accessories fashionably inconspicuous.

With the flowers in bloom, it's time I switch out my neutral nylon carryall for a lighter and brighter shoulder bag.  So, looks like it's out with the cold and in with the Mews.
