the oak long bar

last night i had a mightily unexpected treat when i met some friends over at the newly reno-ed Copley Plaza Oak Bar

this was always a true boston gem..housed inside the majestic Plaza Hotel..but it WAS looking pretty tired over there..and this makeover was just what the place needed!
it now feels like the most chic place to be in boston..and though i cannot speak to the food..the decor was the BOMB.   GO!

xmas shopping at j crew

the truth is..i just cannot stay away from j crew.

so when it is time to think xmas for the whole family..i wonder if i

should resist the temptation?

 doesn't it all just say..'come and get me'?

even all the stuff for the little people is really great (though i do think it says 'mommy dressed me' a wee bit)
i think the looks for spring are looking delish.. lovedore-ing all these wonderfully happy color combos.

as well as the kooky pattern is all certainly food for thought..

as it is time to design our new spring collection here at the stay tuned.

though not always the easiest color to decorate is a showstopper..right?

[see..been there]

i love when you realize that it is everywhere..

repeat after me..emerald..emerald..emerald..say it enough and soon you'll love it too!

yup..did it at my house too! (Ben Moore Four Leaf Clover!]
