HBO undoubtedly has the best television shows around. Mildred Pierce, their latest mini series has hit the mark. The acting/actors are superb – I love Kate Winslet, she is a delight to watch in this role. This mini series has only furthered my love of 1930’s fashion and Oscar-winning costume designer Ann Roth.

I am unbelievably sad this show is already over!

Oh. My. Jeez! I just these shoes. They are too beautiful for words. I love the navy and the lace!

I am excited for 70’s inspired sky high heels! You can owe the above shoes to Nicholas Kirkwood Fall 2011 collection.

I love Mango’s retro inspired line for 2011. It is chic and girlish. I plan to buy several items. What do you think?

Woo hoo it is Thursday which means Little Luxuries is back and one of my daily reads is up today to share her finds with us. Not Your Average Ordinary is written by Brandi who I would categorize as a Renaissance woman! She can blog about anything (fashion, love, life, design, etc) and she is currently studying philosophy of science and science studies. Brandi’s blog has this unique ability to always makes me smile.

As a graduate student, I have to be very careful about my money. Or so I tell myself. But in reality, when it comes to weekends at the farmer’s market, I splurge. I can’t help myself. Somehow eating delicious food keeps me happy and sane when the schoolwork piles up. My favorite splurges at the market? Pastured eggs and flowers.

Of course, I had to also buy the farmer’s egg crate from Anthropologie to go with my farm fresh eggs. And the difficulty with Anthropologie is that one little splurge leads to another for the kitchen (like a butter dish) which leads to an apron which leads to a dress (because the dress looks darling with the apron). It’s strange but sometimes it’s these splurges that help us to lead the life we want to. You have to start sometime, I think, and now is always the perfect time.

Tibi has taken my heart this year with their Spring 2011 fashion. It is chock full of clean lines, dreamy silhouettes and sex appeal. It definitely has a minimal feel with very few patterns and brilliant colors. I need and I want for 2011.

And I just love what Olivia Palermo has done with their collection. She was asked to choose the Tibi clothing that she’d like to be photographed in during the NYC, London, Paris & Milan shows – and to style them in her own personal way.

What if some of our favorite places start their own wedding shops? How perfect would that be and don’t you think it would make life that much easier. Over the last week I have had a few interesting bits of info come across my desk – Anthropologie will be launching a wedding boutique called BHLDN! Rumor has it that there will be fifteen dresses in the debut line, bridesmaids dresses, party dresses, jewelry and accessories, as well as wedding decor, available at its online boutique. Be sure to check it out on 2/14!

Great news right!? Well let me add some icing to the cake – Shopbop will be as well!

I wish I had more to share but as soon as I do…you know where to find me!

I love this outfit. It is simple & chic.

I think its very important to personalize your own pace and Jonathan Adler allows his devoted customers to customize their own
pillows and rugs of course with a little help. Choose your colors, borders, fabrics and patterns and have your very own Adler-esque design hand loomed by Peruvian Artists. This will only set
you back $98!

I adore these photos taken by George Silk in 1946 of young group of folks skiing, sun bathing, and hiking. How I wish my snowy winters were filled with sun bathing!!

Doesn’t that look delightful?
