Dress your tech: Beach Dreaming


If y'all don't follow Design Love Fest by now, I suggest you get your ass in gear. Not only is she the most creative and has the best inspiration, she also has a segment called "Dress Your Tech"  where she is all about jazzing up my boring backgrounds on my electronic devices. Thank you babe Jesus. Anyhow, I am beach day dreaming (I leave for the Dominican this week) and these below are polluting my mind. Get on board. My only reason to get technological. Hope y'all are having the best weekend ever. No really.

Valentine's Wishes: Peak of Tres Chic

Hi all!  Sam here, from The Peak of Tres Chic, guest posting for my best gf Lindsay today in honor of the holiday of love.  You may recall Carrie Bradshaw so eloquently saying, "Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates, and guys are just people to have fun with."  Well, I happen to believe wholeheartedly in this sentiment!  So this Valentine's Day, I propose we spoil our best friends and ourselves to a little something special.  Here's what's on my wish list (in case any of you are wondering- wink wink!):


Shop My Valentine's Wishes:


Halston: Inventing American Fashion Coffee Table Book $47/Sephora False Eyelashes $10/Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins $42/Petite Black Lace Bodycon Dress $68/Mega Babe Keychain $14/Steve Madden Fringy Heels $130/Small Tassel Earrings $58/

I've been dying to purchase this Halston coffee table book after eyeing through it at a local Houston decor store.  I would give anything to don a Halston gown and party at Studio 54 with Andy Warhol a la 1970.


False eyelashes work wonders and my favorites are the $10 pack from Sephora.


Give this keychain to all the boss ass babes in your life!


I love anything monogrammed, and the cocktail napkins from Design Darling are available in a wide range of monogram styles and colors.


Whether you are going on a hot date this Valentine's Day or just partying with a few friends, a LBD and sassy heels are a must.



Any big plans for the holiday of love?

Thanks for having me, Linds!

XOXO,

Sam

Kate Moss in the home

So, show of hands. Who used to think Kate Moss was a complete degenerate junkie? Hot. Mess.  I mean, I grew up of the same opinion. I never quite understood why anyone ever thought she was glamorous when I always thought she looked one high away from rehab. And hygiene? Forget it. I am talking hypodermic needles and baths once a month when she could fit it in between benders. Gurrrrossss. Could I be more specific? Well, I am here to tell you that I have completely changed my judgmental opinion of the once named "Tank." 

As I have gotten older I can appreciate the solemness of all of her work. She is deep, pensive and most of all, thin. I am talking rail thin. As they say, can never be too thin. She is such a unique beauty and once she started getting her shiz together, I have now decided her work is showcase worthy in my home. I am on a serious hunt for her most glamorous and somber representation. Preferably one of her smoking, because like it or not smoking is enchanting (even though I never do). Get down with your bad self, KM. Check out some of her best.

Monday's Must Haves

My lovely ladies, happy 2015! I am only two weeks tardy on delivering that bit. I promised myself, and you all, that I am going to be more consistent in posting this year. I have a lot to say and share but I just need to be better about organizing it. Even when I am traveling. So this is my promise to you betches. Hold me to it.

Let's kick this year off on S+S with a current must have list. You know I am 'bout it 'bout it. I am talking from a rug that can be repurposed as a DIY headboard, to a peacock chair that is going to go on your sun porch for the Spring/Summer season (Yes those seasons really do exist and are not part of some fictitious fantasy. Rull dull). I am your pusher and I am pushing all of the below. Get it.

Shop KC Local: HMK

You guys. You know I love a KC Local post like woah. So for those of you who are not aware, Hallmark is based out of Kansas City and they have recently stepped up their gifting game and opened HMKHMK is a one stop gift shop that has the variety you need for any shopping trip. I am talking culinary accessories, home decor items, gifts for the bros, the gals, the kids and even the necessary gift wrapping accessories. On point, y'all. So I decided to go in and see what this was all about and treat it as a one stop shop for the peeps I still needed to cover for the holiday season. (Don't tell them I am running behind). Let's check it. 


Gifts for the bros...
 Gifts for me...isn't that allowed? 
More gifts for me....these are Kate Spade lookalikes my dears. For a better price point, ya heard? 
 Gifts for the KC lover...
 More gifts for me...again. 
 Of course we have a Kate Spade tribute wall. This is KC, folks. We made Kate Spade.
So here is what I ended up with. Couple gifts for the gals, a flask for a bro in my life and maybe a gift for me.
A gift, ok maybe two, in action for yours truly. 
If you are in KC, I suggest you check HMK. If you reside in the big D (Dallas) or the not so big D (Denver) you have lucked out and can check it out there. Happy last minute shopping, loves!

Flashing Lights, Lights

I mean we all know the song by the talented lyricist Kanye West, Flashing Lights. No? "She don't believe in shooting stars, but she believe in shoes and cars." Ahem. You are speaking my language, Yeezus. So, I may be late to the party here, but I am totally into the neon sign art, y'all. Especially the messy cursive, over the top neon sign art. I am not saying it is always space appropriate, but we can all dream that we live in an apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Anyway, slap a profound statement on to your wall in neon light form and it is just the unexpected flair that your space has been longing for. Flashing. Lights, lights.

The cutest "ugly" Christmas sweater you ever did see

You guys, I am going against everything I believe in today. Listen. When I am notified that I will  be partaking in an "Ugly Christmas Sweater Party" I shudder. "Ugly" and "Lindsay" just do not go together. I don't do "ugly". So when I have no choice in the matter, I bring it and I bring it hard. This is the cutest "Ugly Christmas" sweater situation you EVER did see. So I have pulled a few combinations to ensure that you are wearing the ugliest Christmas sweater in the absolute cutest way possible. You're welcome. Mix and match these babies. Don't disappoint me. Pattern on pattern, you know how we do.


And you KNOW I have to practice what I preach. Here is my combo that I am sporting this fine morning. I may not win the title for best "ugly Christmas sweater," but at least I will be dressed the cutest...


Oh so you need some accessories to the soiree as well? I got you on this.You need these capes, because we all need capes. Christmas inspired ones especially.

My new jam, Thistle and Finn

Y'all. It's been a hot little minute since we have last chatted. Did you have the most fantastic holiday of all time? Yeah, me too. I just returned from the Chi and am trying to get my life in order as the next holiday is quickly approaching. I mean it is the most wonderful time of the year. Naturally, I am on the hunt for some serious Christmas gear, and that means I need to find the latest and greatest of online boutiques. New to me, and hopefully to you, Thistle & Finn. From home decor knick knacks, to jewelry to adorn your adorable bod and don't forget the tremendous stocking stuffers, I am shopping the shiz out of Thistle & Finn. Check it.

Feeling fall inspired in a Nate Berkus for Target kind of way

I mean we all are planning for our holiday tablescapes, right? Don't make me feel weird here as a party of one. So I know this isn't going to come as a surprise to any of you, but I am all about an unconventional holiday tablescape. Don't give me any of that cornucopia and rustic color scheme. Give me color, funky pattern mixing and glamorous accents. So thankfully my man Nate Berkus is doing his thing, as always, this holiday season for Target and he is making a major appearance at all of my seasonal soirees. 

Nate is bringing his flair and attention to detail to his latest collection. I am talking jewel inspired accouterments. gilded adornment, regal patterns and just plain glamour. I am telling you people, this will be stuff that will carry me into the holidays for many years to come. Just check out how I see my table for Thanksgiving this year. Traditional? Not so much. But with mixing jewel tones, patterns and metals, I have Nate Berkus to give thanks to.

My Must Haves

We all know I have an addiction to shopping, and I may be preaching to the choir here, but I generally have a running list of everything that I "need" in my life. No. Seriously. Each and every one of the items are necessities for life survival. You know that I wouldn't be that frivolous or ostentatious. Some home decor, some body decor...whichever it may adorn, they are my must haves at this very moment and are soon to be yours.  Yours Truly, The Shopaholic

Monday Musings: LC's Apartment in InStyle

My people. What is up? So this is the first week I will not be traveling in like forever. So you will see MUCH, MUCH more of me. Hopefully that is a good thing? My week is off to an amazing start. I slept through the gym this morning and I am dreading being in the office. Someone has a case of the Monday's... Someone pump me up for the Monday morning grind puh-lease. We can do this Monday. Yes we can.

So I was scouring the worldwide interweb this weekend for some serious inspiration and I happened to come across the home of my all time favorite Laguna Beach alum. Can you guess who it is? Team LC. Holler. So LC finally found her prince charming (Spoiler alert: No, it is not Steven Colletti, and no, it is not Jason Wahler) and their sophisticated home was recently featured in InStyle. I mean the place is to die for y'all. LC is clearly dunzo with Laguna and has planted her fancy ass smack dab in Beverly Hills. Would you expect anything less? The girl has amazing style which has translated into her grown up home. White walls, major pops of color, tufted furniture, an elaborate bar situation and a closet that would make Carrie Bradshaw envious. Check it.
