Navy and white stripes ALWAYS get me.  As a  life long New Englander a preppy nautical chic wedding always gets me. I can never not get swept up in the details and these Kate Spade Celeste Heels are the perfect example. I can already envision the bride having these peek out from beneath her dress with the shore line in the background, it’s what dreams are made of. If you are a beach bride snag these heels asap, they won’t be at Kate Spade for long!

Friday Wine Tasting…Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare!


Wine Of the Week:

Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare 2011


Winemaker’s Notes

Fresh and bright with a shell pink color reminiscent of a Côtes de Provence Rosé. Hints of wild strawberry, white cherry, ripe peach, and the barest whiff of spearmint give way to zesty notes of strawberry, watermelon, blood orange, peach, and citrus. Perhaps most compelling is the wine’s tremendous food-friendliness.

Wonderful with traditional Provençal fare including charcuterie, pâté, salade niçoise, and the aïoli platter, it’s an incredibly flexible partner at the table, complementing everything from international cuisine—curries, tagines, or chiles rellenos—to a vast array of seafoods, poultry, salads, and cheeses. Delicious today but will develop added richness and aroma with an additional 6-12 months of bottle age.

Inspiration from Anywhere…Ashlee Simpson’s Baby Shower!



The Simpson’s sure know how to throw a party or at least they know the best people to call and design a gorgeous event (call us). Ashlee Simpson’s baby shower, thrown by sister Jessica, was an amazing follow up to both sisters stunning weddings.  I love the twist on using blue and pink at her shower, instead of going the baby pink or baby blue route she went for jewel tones and it works.  This table scape is so luxurious and rich.  The touch of glitter stars on the table are a super fun accent along with the gold flatware and gold rimmed china. What really makes the look work is the white washed wooden table. The mix of luxury and rustic is unexpected and GORGEOUS. I don’t want to say I don’t want JSimp’s marriage to last but I wouldn’t mind seeing another Simpson wedding, vow renewal? Or lucky us, Tina Simpson, aka Momma Simpson, just got engaged! Simpson Wedding Watch officially start now.
