Simply Irresistable

At the Target by my house, the accessories are the first department you hit when you walk through the door....And lately, every day I go, there is another row of adorable bags that I simply cannot resist! And so, today I bring to you my picks of Target's spring and summer totes:

Denim Discussion

I'm an equal opportunist jeans lover, tryer-on and buyer. But unfortunately, my butt doesn't fit into everything I admire. That being said, I am now in a position to stock denim for all sorts of butts....Here are some of my favorite jean picks - all off of Shopbop. But tell me, which brands do you like?

For long skinny legs - Goldsign

James jeans - love them on all shapes - already ordered and scheduled to be in Jac.!

Contemplating Hudson jeans....

Fashion jeans are interesting. They could be here today and gone tomorrow though. Do you buy them? These are Jovovich-Hawk

Seven Jeans are good old-fashioned stand-bys....I've ordered Kasil jeans to be Jac.'s stand-bys
But I think I want to find one more brand to open with. What do you think of these jeans by Anlo?

Please get back to me with your comments! Especially if there is a brand I haven't mentioned that you love. Thanks!

More fabulous boots from Bleubird Vintage

Rock this bag: Besides being the perfect oversize satchel, the Feed bag's proceeds will feed a child in Africa in school for one yearCable knit or box stitch? Either way your flowers will look great in these Alyssa Ettinger vases

Hair & There...

Warm weather leads to fun hair accessories. Not that you can only wear your hair cute in the spring/summer, but with humidity, why bother keeping your hair down when you know it just wants to kink up?? The smart thing to do would be to keep one of these cute hair accessories on hand:

Is it really Spring?

My head has been in Fall these past few days, then I finally got outside and realized that it's a true blue Spring. Who knew? I can't keep up! I definitely needed a light jacket or sweater today....Here are a few good extra layers:

A Topshop cutie!

Such a sweetie from Urban Outfitters

Straight forward with J. Crew

Love this lightweight cashmere cardigan from Nordstrom


Desperately Seeking Seating

I am still on the hunt for a unique seating piece for our dressing area - it's part of our bedroom but slightly sectioned off and I am tired of sitting on the floor to put on shoes! There's nothing that great (which is why we don't own anything yet), but here are a few that I would actually consider:This ottoman is actually my favorite. What a surprise! It's from Brocade Home.

From Urban Outfitters, this seems like a cheap, easy fit....Cute and simple sofa from Anthropologie

I like this combo from West Elm but I would do it in gray

Well, I had a feeling that I'd like going to Market - and it has officially been confirmed! I spent the day today ordering goods for Jac. - and let me tell you, it was a damn good time! The Atlanta Mart (above) is huge - there are about 10 more levels than shown - and though there was a lot of shmata wear - I did make some huge scores! Fabulous Fall boots by Frye and Joie Shoes. Get excited. Some excellent dresses by Voom, Kasil jeans and some basics by Generra - (yes, that Generra - except it was bought by a new company who hired a Marc Jacobs designer!). Folks, I am off my keister in excitement!!!

Joie pants from Vibe. Cozy soft cotton shirt at Anthropologie.

Photos of Jac.

Okay! As promised, the following are pics of my new space. Oh, and fyi - normal updates to resume tomorrow!

Front and center! Although it actually extends further to the left and the right. Guess I should have taken a panoramic!

That's a better angle....but still not shown in its entirety

And aside from being below a series of condominiums, apartments and townhomes, I am across the street from all of this as well! Set to be finished in 5 months - built in customers all around!

Oh - and I am next door to this development as well, which houses one of four big restaurants on my street! Hurray!

This is big folks.


Jac. is really going to happen!

Thank you to all of my long, (looooong) time supporters for always keeping me in good cheer! I am very excited.

I especially want to thank my husband and parents who really helped to get me this far.

So what now? Well, I begin today! I meet with an architect, a builder, vendors, file for IDs and do about a million other things. And that's just the first week! :o) But I plan on keeping you all updated on the progress, while still bringing you fashion/houseware/accessorie updates as I have been.

I hope to have some pix up by the end of the week. Thanks again for all of your support!
XO Jac
