Magnificent Monday

For Magnificent Monday, I usually share an inspirational pic of a chic bedroom or living room...sometimes I also share a gorgeous pic of a destination somewhere in Italy or the Caribbean...But today is truly Magnificent because I hit gold on Saturday. Yes, the form of a pair of gorgeous Ralph Lauren biker boots for a mere $54.99. Guess where ?.....ROSS. Yes, the infamous Dress for Less store. I did some research and found the exact same boots on sale here for over $300...but I paid a mere 50-something bucks for mine. And what made this experience even better, is that one of the sales ladies, at ROSS, told me they only received one pair, and they're mine!

Do you have a great ROSS find to share?

My TJ Maxx Score

{click on pic to see image source}

This is not the actual piece I purchased, but it is exactly like the one I totally scored. I was planning on doing the usual work I do at home, but then I thought...why not, I'm going to TJ Maxx. And, I'm so happy I did, because I totally scored a silver embossed, chic, WWII poster on "wood" for $24.99...ready to hang...It measures about 24X 20. I'm so very, very happy with my TJ Maxx find. 

Do YOU have any TJ Maxx finds to share? Please share.

What to Wear This Fall...2010?

I'm sure I can safely say that all women swoon at the thought of what they have to look forward to every fall when it comes to fashion. It's exciting to say the least, and we can't get enough of the spectacular and beautiful attire so many brilliant designers conjure and bring to fruition. Above is a Calvin Klein coat that is to die for. The lines and attention to detail is inspiring. Any woman would look at feel spectacular in this coat. Below are more fabulous designs from various designers (don't forget to click on the pic to find out who the designer is and the source of the pic). Enjoy:

Roma e La Citta Dell'amore e Tutto Bello.

Anthony Bourdain goes to Roma. Roma e la citta dell'amore e tutto bello. Although I've never been, it is in my dreams, desires, and near future. I know I've said this many times before, here, but Italia is in my blood. For those who haven't been or for those who can't get enough, we can relish in Bourdain's adventures as seen on his show Monday nights on the Travel Channel. I love his show. Not only do I love the unique dishes that are featured throughout his travels, but what really got me hooked was his uncanny, witty analysis on food, history, and culture. If you haven't seen the show, give it a chance, and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. You won't be disappointed.

It's All in The Flowers

{click on images to see source}
I woke up thinking of flowers this morning...I'm not quite sure why other than maybe I'm craving a floral arrangement. But I will say this: I love, love flowers and plants. I feel that a simple floral arrangement can elevate the aura of a room to serenity and elegance. How many time have we walked into a room and exhaled an "awww" when we see a beautiful arrangement? Think of weddings: what do we look at first when we walk into the reception room? There are endless reasons why we gravitate to flowers. So, in celebration of nature's beautiful flowers, here are a  couple designs and arrangements that would look lovely in my kitchen or office.  Yummy.

I'm Flipping Out over Flipping Out.

I don't know what to say when it comes to Jeff Lewis....I adore him. He has a great design eye, and he seems to create beauty no matter what resources he's working with. Season 4 of Bravo's hit show,  Flipping Out, premiers today. And, if you haven't checked it out, you are missing out.

In a BLUE Mood.

{images from different sources; click on the pic to see the source}

Adding to yesterday's post, I found inspirational images of beautiful, chic blue bedrooms. You'll notice that in these examples, blue is used as a neutral..and this "neutral" can be fashioned with almost any other accent color. But what I love the most about all of these examples is the simplicity in design. However, a sense of elegance and chic is easily added with whimsical lighting, chic bedding, or accent furniture as seen in the bench in the last pic. I'm loving a blue bedroom...yes I am.
