{ Shay Bag }

Currently obsessed with this Shay Bag from Sole Society-- the natural color makes the bag as versatile as it is chic! Don't you love the idea of pairing it with dark, hunter green nail polish? Yes, just yes.

Here's how we'll style it:

{ oversized appeal }

Ok it's freezing. I spent my snow day doing some sketching and closet cleaning. I have been dying for a really large, oversized scarf in a wintry print. Thinking maybe I need to search menswear too, b/c I like a really big scarf. I'm talking double-as-a-blanket size. Peeked online and here's what I found...

{ Snow Day }

Want to know what makes blizzards more fun? A fuzzy cotton candy colored coat. I like to wear baby pinks mixed with grey, white, and metallics. I chose all h&m (coat, denim and booties) for the snow and paired with my wasson bag from be&d. Piled on some gold, silver & rose gold brandy pham and jcrew jewelry and hit the snow.

{ kivita }

Wanted to share one of my favorite little touches that I've recently added to my home--the Kivita Coasters from RabLabs.  Switching out regular coasters with beautiful pieces like this are the type of accents that make your home feel completely special and unique. I'm kind of obsessed with them...

{ cold weather curls }

Sometimes a beanie is not only unavoidable due to cold temps, but also the perfect way to extend your hairstyle between washes. The key to pulling off a beanie and having it compliment your look? Curling the lower half of your hair. simple!

With Valentine's day riiiight around the corner, I thought I'd share some of my favorites from their #loveslavecollection that you can just go ahead and forward on to your significant other. No better gift than a beautiful piece of jewelry that you'll love forever, right?

{ angersteins lighting pt. 2 }

I know you have been seeing a lot of sneak peeks of my home on instagram, and I have been getting so many emails about products and furniture and I promise to begin sharing more, but first I wanted to make sure to share the 2nd light (part 1 here!) we found for the shoot last month. Angersteins rushed this one in as well and I could not be happier with how it turned out! 

It's the Adele pendant, also from Arteriors-- I'm a new fan and will probably be a lifer!
This pendant is really special because it's simple, but the shape is so unique and the way the light reflects above it when it shines off of the bronze is the best part. 

Also, don't forget that Angersteins is offering DS readers free shipping off all orders (!!) when you use the code dillydallas at checkout. And if your order is more than $1000 they will give you $100 off your purchase! Go, go, go!

{ whipped bakeshop }

Just have to take a second to tell you about how insanely talented my friends at Whipped Bakeshop are. They can literally make anything into a cookie and the best part is they taste reaaaaally good. I am consistently impressed by their work and just had to share. Here are some that I've had them make for me recently....

{ leather & fur }

I'll be honest with you, my feelings were wavering about large, felt, floppy fedoras. But then I saw this one from Otte and my feelings changed. The straighter brim and rich olive shade (everyone's been wearing black and royal blue) felt more "me". I paired it with a leather jacket, faux fur scarf and some distressed denim today.

Thanks for creating the change of heart Otte.

{ pink pout }

we are big believers in the power of a great lipstick, and this week we are really feeling a punchy pink pout. just the right amount of color, just the right amount of pretty. 

Here's how you'll get this look:

{ Prada Candy }

So, Prada sent me a little candy for christmas (I know, right?). And I can't decide what I love more, the packaging or the sweet scent. Have you tried? I can't stop spraying.

{ angersteins lighting }

When I decided to take part in a the DKNY Fragrance holiday shoot last month, the team and I were on really tight deadline and if it wasn't for Kristen and her staff at Angersteins Lighting we may have been left in trouble. (aka left. in. the. dark.)

The team not only helped find and install a few lights very quickly, but they also trusted in my "particular" taste. The first light we decided on was the Harding chandelier in bronze. It was an easy pick. Took one look at it and named it the mother of all chandeliers. It's got 48 bulbs, (48!) which seems intimidating for a dining area, but on a dimmer it's just perfect and was honestly the star of the shoot.

Angersteins is offering DS readers free shipping off all orders (!!) when you use the code dillydallas at checkout. Also, if that order is more than $1000 they will give you $100 off your purchase! January is so the time for a mini home makeover.

{ the alessa }

Bought myself a little gift this break and had to share. Kate Spade's Southport Ave Alessa.  I don't own any structured bags, they just aren't usually my style, but the pebbled leather on this one and the oversized tassel stopped me in my tracks. I know it's been all over my instagram too, but I just can't get enough of it. Going to step up my bag collection this year. Any faves of yours that I should know about?
