BOP BASICS


If you’ve been reading this blog for a some time (or even if you’ve only read a single What I Love Right Now post) then you know I have a serious affection for Shopbop. Checking their “What’s New” section is a morning ritual of mine (not to mention, the cause of many an impulse purchase), and rarely does a morning perusal go by without something being added to “my hearts.” Until a few weeks ago, however, I had never purchased anything from their in-house label, Bop Basics. After just one order, I’m already really impressed with the label. They offer a variety of classic wardrobe items – including this jumpsuit! It’s a super lightweight piece making it ideal for warm summer nights, and it’s simple silhouette lends itself nicely to statement accessories (a belt would be perfect here!). I’m already adding it to my suitcase for next week’s beach vacay… 

KELLY WEARSTLER AT FORTY FIVE TEN

I know it’s Thursday, and I had a great “What I Love Right Now” post planned for today. However, I just couldn’t wait to post these pictures from last night’s Kelly Wearstler event at Dallas’ Forty Five Ten. What a fun night! The event marked the official debut of Wearstler’s RTW and home collections in the store. Every single piece is amazing! (Literally – every. single. piece.) I adore her clutches – Wearstler herself was carrying a black one – especially the black-on-ivory water snake version. The home accessories are just as glam – and quirky –  in person as you’d expect. My favorite piece? The brass foot. I think it belongs in my living room, no? Of course, the best part of the night was meeting the designer herself. I even managed to snap a picture with her. Check out these pictures for a peek into the store. If you’re in Dallas, be sure to head over to Forty Five Ten to check it out for yourself! 
A peek at a few of the amazing home accessories – including a limited-edition mini version of Hue. I bought a signed copy, and it’s now living on my bookshelf in my office. 
My quick picture with Wearstler! My face is a bit rosy – she makes me blush, what can I say? With Wearstler in mind, I opted for my color blocked Heidi Merrick top paired with a simple black mini and my new Jason Wu sandals. The other picture is with my adorable friend Meghan who works as a buyer for Forty Five Ten. 
The brass foot! Please let him come live with me! 
So many pretty baubles! 
Three of my favorite people: Brian Bolke, owner of Forty Five Ten, alongside DJ Lucy Wrubel; and then my friend Alli on the right in her cute all white look. 
I took this napkin home with me! 

GIFT GUIDE: FOR THE GIRL ON THE GO

Here’s a little gift guide for the ladies who are always on the go. I feel like things have been going non-stop lately, and these are a few items that I’ve added to own wish list. Wearing super high heels just hasn’t been an option lately with all the running around, so I’d love to see these Tory Burch ballet flats under my tree! If you have any friends that are frequent work travelers, this guide will work for them as well. One of my very favorites is this Club Monaco throw – it’s the perfect thing to wrap up in on a long flight. Or check out this universal adaptor. So you can blow dry your hair no matter where you are!
