Tuesday Shoesday….Anthropologie!


via Anthropologie

Looks like fringe is still in.  Found these beauties at Anthropologie and was instantly in love.  I’m a huge fringe lover but on top of that I adore the natural nude leather color paired with the metallic accents.  These Schutz Carmen heels are totally going to be summer stunners so pick them up while you can.  They’d add the perfect flair to any outfit.  How about a pair of white crisp skinny jeans with these? Love!

Friday Wine Tasting…Indigeno Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie!


Wine of the Week: 

Indigeno Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie   2013


Winemakers Notes: 

Years ago, on a roadtrip winding through the valleys and mountains of Friuli in northeastern Italy, world-class chef Lachlan McKinnon-Patterson and Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey decided then and there to start making Friulian wines. Their love of the region’s varied foods and cultures and how those two intersect with the creation and enjoyment of wine was well-established, now it was time to start a winery. Bordered on the north and east by mountains, the south by the Adriatic Sea and the west by the river Livenza, Friuli prides itself on producing some of the world’s great pinot grigios. This offering comes from three of the region’s most famous and coveted areas within the winegrowing region of delle Venezie: the valley of the Isonzo River, the rolling hills of Collio and historic Colli Orientali del Friuli. These cooler sites bring balance, lightness and delicate minerality to the glass. Settling the grapes in their skins for 12 hours, and then six months of stainless steel aging on the lees, ensures that the essence of Friuli proudly shows in every bottle.

VINTNER’S NOTES: Light straw color with a salmon tint. Aromas of white flowers, apricots and peach. Crisp and dry on the palate. Lavender, honey and pear flavors, with a touch of minerality. 1,000 cases made.

Wine Tasting Notes: 

Crispy roast chicken, fried calamari, sushi, pesce crudo, smoked trout or salmon, Italian-inspired cheese plate

Inspiration from Anywhere…Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala!


via Pinterest

Annually Pantone chooses a color to be THE “color of the year”. For example, last year was Radiant Orchid (thumbs down) and the year before that was Emerald (swoon to the max). Apparently, unbeknownst to me before looking it up on Wiki, a secret meeting is held in a European capital where “representatives from various nations color standards’ groups” from around the globe come together and crown a “color of the year”.  After two days of grueling debate it is finally decided an entire year before any of us know what color will dominate our wardrobes, interior design and favorite celebrities on the red carpet. Okay, this all sounds very Skulls and Bones to me just for a couple people’s favorite color.  What I will tell you is I LOVE their pick this year! Marsala, Pantone #18-1438, totally out does last years, Radiant Orchid. It’s the perfect color to incorporate into event and wedding design, which of course got us excited.  I pulled some of my favorite Marsala for wedding design inspirations. All hail our color Queen, Marsala!
