Sweets for the Sweet



What I'm wearing:
*Diane von Furstenberg Julian Wrap Dress in Red Leopard
*J.Crew Boyfriend Blazer (similar here & here)
*H&M Black Tights
*Frye Lisa T-strap Mary Janes in Black (similar here)
*Mulberry Alexa Bag in Oak


Happy Valentine's Day! I am fully aware that it is a completely commercialized, Hallmark holiday, but I just love all the pink and the hearts that are everywhere. I decided in honor of the holiday I'd wear my red leopard wrap-dress that had been sitting unworn in my closet for far too long.


Meet the newest addition to my closet! I have been lusting after the Mulberry Alexa for a very long time, but never pulled the trigger on it. This bag is actually a gift from my family as a Valentine's Day/early birthday/new job celebrating present! I had a tough time deciding between the regular size and the oversized, but I ended up with the regular because I can wear it anywhere, and it's a great size to wear cross-body. The oversized looked just a bit too big on me, and I already have some bigger sized purses.

  2. Happy V-Day to you, yours and your Savvy pup! You look fantastic in the red DVF - I think the wrap dresses really fit your shape well and look great. As for the Mulberry, I think I may be dying, a la Rachel Zoe!

  19. Agh, I LOVE the Mulberry Alexa! I got a bag from Madewell that looks really similar to it, but it's definitely no comparison to the real deal. What a lovely gift!

    I LOVE the red wrap dress! I remember seeing Anjali from Goldenmeans sport the grey version and have been enamored with it ever since. You pull off the red version beautifully and it is Valentine's Day perfect!
