My apologies for disappearing late last week. We were in New York…getting married! My man and I tied the knot at city hall on Friday and our families flew in from California and London to help celebrate. Even 84-year-old Grandma Rita made the trip! Thursday night we had a delicious dinner in the wine room at Freeman’s (hearing Rita imitate my husband’s English accent was priceless…) and after the Friday morning ceremony we skipped to The Odeon for a champagne brunch. It was all so simple and easy and fun—we wouldn’t have changed a thing. I’ll be sure to share a few of the professional photos when they arrive. In the meantime, my wedding shoes.
There are several enticing movies coming to theaters this fall and “Carol” starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara is on my short list. The film is an adaption of Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 novel “The Price of Salt” (she also penned “The Talented Mr. Ripley”) and tells the story of a lesbian love affair between a stylish socialite and a timid shop girl. Mara won Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival for her role and Blanchett’s 1950s New York wardrobe is beyond chic. If you like, you can watch the trailer here. “Carol” hits theaters November 20.
I’m always taking screenshots of fantastic products online, but thanks to my terrible memory, they never find their way onto the blog. I must have 100 products cluttering my computer’s desktop at this very moment! As a solution, I thought it would be nice to start the morning with a “Daily Treasure Hunt” featuring five or so great finds on the web. They could be anything—silly, chic, handsome—the only rule is they have to be something I genuinely love. Here goes round one!
Hope you found these fun! More “treasures” to come tomorrow!
