I had a lot of work today!  If I had an amazing laptop sleeve like the black patent one I posted in this scheme, I might be more inclined to carry mine around with me.  I love the black knit pants in the style of jeans for a girl-on-the-go.  I especially love military style coats!  Thankfully, the weather has been cool enough here in San Diego for me to wear a few.   All of the pieces here have form and function.  It would have been an amazingly satisfying look to wear today during all the nonsense that I had to accomplish.

Please email me if you want help selecting similar pieces for yourself.... amber@thepinkfrock.com

What I Would Wear .... February 28

Birthday Girl....

2.26.2011

Iro Clemence Dress


If it is your birthday today (like me) and you are going to dinner at your favorite spot (like me) with your ever-sexy amazing husband (like me)and want to avoid that "tired housewife" look (like me)and really don't want to emphasize your age (again like me).

Go with this ensemble.  Of course it is all courtesy of Net-a-Porter and their amazing styling, unique finds, and the selling point- high resolution photography. 

 I think that any birthday that includes a polished and flattering dress, gorgeous pumps, and a chic clutch is bound to be a good one.

Ugly Shoes

2.25.2011

Every day I play a little game with my husband.  I post the ugliest shoe I can find onto his Facebook wall.  Sometimes I identify it as "ugly shoe of the day" or similar moniker.   However, most of the time I write him a note that includes a hint of the risque.  My veiled-dirty note might say something like "I'm thinking of something black, leather, and lace-up for Valentine's Day".  Then I post the ugliest, most-mannish brogue style oxford shoe. 

This game leads to some good laughing on my part.  Its a little way to flirt with him during the day but also let him know that I am never going to be caught dead in a sling-back croc or Clark's anything.  I have posted below some of the most offensive examples of WOMEN'S shoes that I found recently.  Yes, yes, WOMEN'S, not men's, not grandma's, not clowns.  Take a peek!   Feel free to email any examples of other yucky shoes that you find and I will be glad to include them in the rotation.   amber@thepinkfrock.com

A little arm candy...

2.17.2011

I had a few appointments today that included catching up with old friends.  We talked about life, business, love, kids, and laundry (sadly).  The conversation also included talking about the gorgeous set of bracelets I was wearing.  I had on a set of leather corded and gold plated pave bracelets.  I love these two pieces of jewelry and wear them often.  The set I have was sold at Henri Bendel's in the fall.  I don't see them on the Bendel's website anymore but there are so many other very similar bracelets to buy. 

I have posted some of my favorite picks below.  If you are interested in any of the bracelets I am showing, contact me; I have some insight into the source for some of these items.
