Polka Dots

Polka Dots are everywhere-what a great, yet classic look.  When I think of polka dots I think of my mom, my nana and of course Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman-who could forget that dress?!?!?!?  Well here are two different ways to bring polka dots into your life.  JCrew has a flattering skirt-hello so over the pencil skirt, thank you for offering a skirt for the girls with hips ;) Kate Spade has gorgeous polka dot pumps that will make any outfit sassy!

Violet Fatale

OK-anyone who has seen my purse knows I love Chanel lip gloss, but my love affair with lipstick must go to Tom Ford.  I love his lipstick, the creamy texture, long lasting, luscious colors make me swoon!  Violet Fatale was my first buy, it looks a little daunting in the picture, but on it's an awesome rich violet pink!  Trust me, the moment you put this on it makes you glamorous and fashion forward!  Check out all of Tom Ford's colors at Neiman Marcus....go smack those lips girlies!

PISTOL- a refined yet fiery woman

Sooo I love nail polish and clearly love all the new nail trends, reference the love nail!  My friend L.T. started an ahmazing new business and brand called Pistol-this brand is all about being a fiery, independent, awesome woman clearly like the CEO herself!  It is kind of like birch box, but better, you receive two full size nail polishes each month and it is all made and packaged in the USA-a big plus for me!  So check out her website and ask yourself if you are a pistol woman, I know I am!!!

So if you can't tell by now, I'm pretty much in love with things that sparkle, but then again what girl doesn't love a little sparkle?!?!?!?  I have been dying to have these gorgeous Kate Spade "Charm" shoes for over a year!  My wonderful mama bought them for me....they are now known as my Arizona shoes since Papa M went on a golf trip ;)  These shoes really put a pep in my step every time I wear them, whether to dress up jeans or complete a more dressy look!  Keep on sparkling y'all!

Bourbon and Boots

Well I just had to share this little gem of a website with y'all!  It's called Bourbon and Boots, they have authentic Southern gifts, stories and style.  The name alone should get you excited as no get out!  I purchased this necklace from them-because honestly who doesn't love a little Johnny Cash, the man in black?!?!?!

One of the best things that has ever happened to women is the discovery of lipstick!  I remember as a little girl trying on my mom's Clinique hot pink lipstick and especially getting excited for dance recitals when I sported the hot pink lips on stage!

Lipstick just lifts you up, it gives you that pep in your step, it completes your entire look.  So, naturally I was super excited when Chanel came out with Magnolia, a pink shade of the Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme lip color.  Because every Sweet Magnolia Southern girl knows she doesn't leave the house without a little color on her lips!
