Here is a list of a few things that are sure to brighten any bad day for me! What are some of your favorite things?
1.Any Period film...mainly for the costumes....from the simplicity of Pride and Predjudice to the opulence of Marie Antoinette,they are just visually stunning to me.
2.Desserts... cupcakes, ice cream, cookies, I just love them all.
4.NYC... I await the day I can afford to own an apartment there.
5.Cold Weather...When I think of cold weather I think of big cozy sweaters, snow, fireplaces, christmas, and hot cocoa!

With cooler weather right around the corner (hopefully), I start to envision my Fall wardrobe and one of my favorite cool weather essentials are boots! I always allow myself two new pairs every year. These are some I am considering...
1. Oh DEER. gold metallic ankle booties- 245.00
Perfect for a night out!
2. Chinese Laundry. Turbo Suede over the knee boots- 79.95
A must have, comfortable everyday boot!
3.Madden Girl. Ivory Wedge boot- 59.95
Great Equestrian-ish wedge!
4.Chooka. Womens Honey Bee Rain boot-59.95
Too cute for words!

One of my favorite films is Marie Antoinette. Not for the acting, not for the directing but for the costumes, hair and makeup...ugh I was born in the wrong era! Kirsten Dunst had over 60 gowns in the film... each one as beautiful as the next. Above are some of my favorite, although I was tempted to post all of them. If you would like to see all of the amazing costumes, I have posted the link below.

When it comes to decorating, there are few things I love more than lighting. A light can instantly change your mood and change a room. When it comes to my taste, I love lights that are terribly romantic and delicate. From the elegance of a chandelier to some more modern pieces: these are some of my favorites.

I recently stumbled upon Oscar de la Renta's new fall 09 collection, and I'm really into alot of the pieces. I love the bold belt's and contrasting bright colors. I will definitely keep these in mind when I shop for my own fall wardrobe. The divine Pink creation was my absolute favorite.

Ballet has always been and will always be one of the most beautiful things in the world to me. Having been a ballerina for 10 years myself, I've seen more than my fair share of gorgeous ballet costumes. And as tempting as it would be to go sauntering down the street in a full tutu..... it's not exactly practical. So to feed my tulle fix, I've found a few pieces that I can incorporate into my everyday life. I'm obsessing over the black and white dress. Tres Jolie!
