1. Let’s talk about the house, guys. I realize I kind of left you all hanging with all the updates and then….nothing. Well, we’ve been working hard to finish the space, and we are getting really close. (Although, come on, you are never really “finished,” but that’s the fun and/or frustration of it all.) D [...]
Fellow shopaholics, it’s time for Shopbop’s Pre-Spring Shopping Event. I’m sure most of you already know about Shopbop, but if not, it’s the greatest online retailer EVAH. (I mean, okay, in terms of personal dollars spent, it’s a tie between J. Crew and Shopbop, but you can’t really compare because Shopbop has a million brands. [...]
Yesterday at lunch, for fun, I asked Wito what he thought the big trend would be at the Oscars that evening. He tilted his head, paused for a moment, and said, “Silver. Sparkly silver, mom.” Well, the kid called it, and I have to say, absolutely loved all the metallics and pale neutrals. Sometimes you [...]
After months of holding back, I’ve gone a little clothes crazy this month. Let’s chat about some items that I am currently coveting and/or buying. Fan Fringe Necklace – I am so in love with this necklace – my three favorite colors? Together in perfect harmony? I will stalk this puppy until it’s sale time. [...]
I might be slightly obsessed with silky blouses. (Notice I call them “silky” blouses — I’m equal opportunity regarding pure silk blouses, and, you know, a little polyester here and there. Hey! It’s way cheaper and you can machine wash polyester, so the lack of breathability cancels itself out, methinks.) Silky blouses are so pretty [...]
I pretty much left you hanging after posting about the Great Ankle Boot Search of 2012. Sorry ’bout that. Turns out – I DID find the perfect boots. When in New York last month, I just happened to stroll by Isabel Marant’s boutique in Soho. (Meaning I googled her store, mapped out the best walking [...]
It’s no secret that I’m an organizational freak. I love rearranging and purging items, making lists, and making lists within lists…essentially compartmentalizing my entire existence, you see. If I find something that feeds my organizational frenzy AND is totally stylish, I’m so in. Enter Truffle. You guys, these pouches are so perfect. How many of [...]
1. I want to dress like those illustrations. image via Paper Fashion 2. The first thing I read this morning was this. Um, kind of a bummer, right? I need to get my hands on the actual study, but runners, what do you think? 3. The house is almost finished – we ended up postponing [...]
1. How cute is the above graphic by Style United? I loved that they used my handwriting, even if it’s wayyyyyy less cool than my husband’s. 2. Right on the tail of my bootie obsession (seriously, WHEN ARE THE MADEWELL BOOTS GOING TO GET HERE?) is my hat obsession. Here are 10 of my favorites. [...]
Ho ho ho, cute and cozy baby lovers! Yesterday, Gilt.com exclusively launched Baby Gap’s Snowflake Collection. You can purchase the collection on Gilt.com before it’s available anywhere else, but you better hurry because it’s going fast. Click here to check out the adorable goods.
To say I’ve been on quite a search for a new pair of ankle boots (aka “booties”) this season would be an understatement. (Although the word “booties” makes me snicker. I AM SO IMMATURE.) Even though we are in the midst of house renovation crazy right now, I’ve taken on a good deal of new [...]
Stella & Dot. Methinks you might know about this company…but have you heard of Courtney Ford? Yep, that’s her up there with the perfectly wavy chin-length bob. (Seriously, the hair is beyond Pinterest-worthy.) So, Courtney is a working mama of two adorable little boys, Ian and Arthur, and lives in Boston. She emailed me a [...]
We love Freshly Picked moccasins at the Whoorl household. We really love them. So much that Wita pretty much wears two pairs of shoes for 85% of the year. Freshly Picked moccasins in the fall and winter, and Saltwater Sandals in the spring and summer. Now, Wito has graduated from the leather mocs because he [...]
Happy Saturday! Which color of these boots do you prefer the most? I’m asking for a friend. Which boot color?
1. This post is a bit of a Whoorl-other-places onslaught today, so feel free to skip. To those of you who stick around, BFF. FOR EVAH AND EVAH. 2. I’m selling some jeans over at Whoorl’s Closet. Check ‘em out, and email me if you are interested! Proceeds go to the Whoorl Kitchen Renovation Fund. [...]
