Book Review: The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

I recently have been reading more then I have in years (a negative side effect of Graduate School). With the combination of audible and some much needed downtime, I have compiled a list of books I want to finish by the end of the year. One of the books was, “The Year of Yes.”

I am not sure what I expected but what I found was a hilariously intimate and raw journey of self discovery. The book was a poignant reminder that everyday we have choices and finding the things that make us joyful is one of them. I was surprised how many times I totally identified with Shonda and how much her words made me lift the mirror to myself and the life I have been living. I highly recommend the book! Happy Reading.

Avec Amour,

A Steal of a Deal: J.Crew Spaghetti-Strap Dress in Colorful Brushstroke Print

During Labor day weekend I stumbled into J.Crew. I had been eyeing a new leopard dress on the website so I made my way into the store. I always check out the new items but generally only buy from the sale rack because everything there generally goes on sale.

imageOne pattern that caught my eye several weeks prior was the Colorful Brushstroke print. I loved the bright hues and the easy year round fabric. I loved all the pieces but on the sale rack was the midi dress with spaghetti straps and accordion skirt. The price was marked at $99.99 with 40% off. I was pretty excited to get the dress at less than 50%off the original price. I recently wore the dress to work and an CBC event. I paired it with the  J. Crew  Jackie cardigan in coral and gold strappy Jimmy Choo shoes.

Happy Deal Hunting!

Shoe Obsession: Prada Metallic Sandals

Prada Strappy SandalsPrada Strappy Sandals2

A few months ago, I was trolling Ebay looking for some cute shoes to take to a wedding. I stumbled upon these beauties. Prada is one of my favorite shoes brands so I had to have them! They are super comfy and are a great year round shoe. Perfect in the winter for a Holiday party. Lovely in the summer to pair with a little summer dress. I wore them the other night to a party and they were an absolute hit. The fact that I didn’t pay anywhere near the $695 price tag also added to the allure.
