Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Guys, this is serious. We have less than a week before the Lilly Pulitzer for Target line hits the shelves! And I still haven't narrowed down my purchases! But I am truly in love with the Boom Boom pattern...and the giraffeey! Lilly has been a Palm Beach staple for decades and yeah, it certainly has its cache of snobby rich girls (no sugar-coating here), and yeah, Lilly for the masses is kind of contra-indicated for the upscale brand, in this economic climate, wider name recognition and fan base expansion never hurt anyone. Regardless, it's impossible to look at the pieces and not feel a little happier. Where there's Lilly, there's summer. Even if you don't spend it on Nantucket.

Etched Glass

Wanted to give a shout out to this Etsy seller: GlassGirlJen.

She made some super lovely glasses for me that I gave as a wedding gift a few months ago and they were gorgeous! (pictured below). They're hand-etched -a dying art- and are just absolutely perfect. I opted for the stemless wine glasses, but the options are endless. (I really love the square tumblers.) Everything was very carefully packed and came in well ahead of schedule. Check her out and deck out your home bar. Or give them away as gifts, if you can bear it! When is a monogram not the right choice?!

T-Shirt Rings for Hair?!

So says Celine.

You had 'em on your tees in the 80s. Why not a shiny glam gold version for your hair in the teens?

Expanding Across Platforms

Obviously I haven't been posting as much here lately and I wanted to let you all know what was up. I've been playing with formats and this blog lends itself more to articles and in-depth explorations. Yet, I've been posting a lot of just pictures. So, the pics only posts from here on out will be on the tumblr: http://smartaesthetic.tumblr.com/
It just seems to be a better format for images that don't require much commentary. Come check out the new digs for image inspiration. This page will continue to feature wordier content and articles.

Blanket Scarves: Adore

Zara makes the uber trendy version but everyone, right down to Target is selling a version. Grab one now and fend off the last of the winter chills. Spring is coming.
