Denim for the Diva- Just in at Encore!

Okay, so I have a new favorite line of denim- Level 99 Jeans. Previously purchased at Antropologie (now I just take right home from my favorite store, Encore!) , I can be seen atleast three times a week in one of my pairs. They look so great on everyone with the slight widening at the bottom they miraculously make you look slimmer and taller!

New Cards In!

Okay, so for those of you that know me you know how much I LOVE
. When Scott first met me he said I abused the postal service.
NOW, I think that is going a little too far Mr. Turner but I do feel PASSIONATELY
about the art of correspondance.

In addition to all of our GREAT stationary, we just got in 50 NEW Styles of Cards.
Yes, that is 50! Here is a preview of some of the lines... some we've had before just new styles,
some are BRAND new and some... well, you'll just have to come in to see!

What a productive show! (Anyone willing to take out a second mortgage for what we bought? J/K... well, not really! We found amazing things... and had a great time.

view from hotel room. City, we miss you!

As some of you know, I took my dear friend Esra with me and she was loving modeling the goods :)

Esra in flirty scarf from Tailoi

The two things trend wise we see are SCARVES and DENIM LEGGINGS!
. . . and, yes, we bought both!

from Level 99, great with all of our great tunics, sweater dresses and boots!

lots of colors and textures... we are so in love with a scarf!

Also purchased were lots of easy, comfortable tunics and sweater dresses. This, ordered in
black was a favorite of ours. . .

We ate at amazing restaurants including Buddakan and Gramercy Tavern.

Had an Amazing Filet at Buddakon, above, where I also went with Sister-in-Law in January. Both times proved amazing!

Also, did a stop by Sex and the City made celebrity hangout Caprelis
We saw a rapper (could not identify... Scott was so mad) and sat and eavesdropped
on writer of Belle in the Big Apple (on shelves in September) and apparently from
what I overheard Showtime may pick up the series :) You heard the scoop from me.

About a southern gal who moves to city . . . with culinary adventures. Her blog was entertaining so now that I have dined beside her I will buy it :)

Also, did I mention we bought bags and belts galore??? Party Dresses for parties and Homecoming??? So many great things, so little blog space. . .

Sources of Inspiration

So, when I return from shows I am inspired for many reasons...
One, I have new duds for you.
Two, I get to have great conversations with other Shop Girls
and Three, I see super creative displays that blow ours out of the water!

Check out a few from my Anthropologie Display Folder! More like art installations,
each store has creative freedom!
