New Baubles, Bling and Boots

I'm excited to share with you a few new purchases I've made recently.  Oh, and as you can see I'm an Instagram Sistah so follow along if you'd like, vcwalton.

First I just bought this precious love ring at Nordstroms and I was super excited when I spotted it.  I love all different versions everyone has pinned like crazy, but not the prices.  I'm all about investment jewelery, but not for small trendy trinkets.  Only $28, thank you Nordi!

Next, my fabulous new Loeffler Randall rain boots arrived.  My friend Christi from P is for Party had these first and I couldn't get them out of my head.  She has them in green, and I just purchased the taupe color.  They were 50% off and are so comfortable and stylish.  Please let it rain!

Don't you just love the zipper up the back?

And lastly, I love my new minty/teal hued earrings from Kendra Scott.  Also a wonderful purchase from Nordstroms.  Here I am breaking them in and I couldn't resist a pic.  I bought the smaller size since the large felt very heavy.  Plus I'm a little weird about heavy earrings and paranoid my lobes will stretch. 

Check out my guest bath wallpaper.  I love the Farrow and Ball Lotus paper in charleston gray.  It was a total splurge that was worth every penny.  That room makes me happy.

Coach Fall 2012

Coach is launching a new line for fall 2012 by revamping several of it's old Legacy classics and I say it's about time!  I've grown tired of the same old monogrammed in your face C designs and have longed for more classic elegant styles.  They've kept the sturdy smooth leather and clean lines and added a rainbow of new colors and oversized clutches.  I'm loving the cobalt blue, kelly green and orange bags. 

I'm in need of a good crossbody bag and I've been eyeing the Classic Shoulder bag in orange, but I just might have to wait and preview the new line when it launches August 1.  Here's a peak, I think you'll be excited too.

I'm really excited about the oversized Universal  Envelope Clutch seen on several celebrities at their launch party.  I'm jonesing for the Kelly green one.

Here it is again in silver carried by Jordana Brewster.  Olivia Munn is holding a new clutch as well.

Jessica Stroup carried it in their famous british tan color.  Isn't it fabulous?  Big and elegant.

And Here's a preview of the new line thanks to  To see more click on the link.

Man Flowers for The Big 4-0

My friend Mike turns 40 today and to help him celebrate I'm giving him man flowers.  I originally got this idea from Pinterest see it here, but I decide to take it to the next level.

I took a galavinized pail and filled it with Jack Daniels, Cohibas and Pop Rocks (think about it).  Obiviously this gift is not PG and intended for Adults only.  All it took was hot glue, popcicle sticks, sand to weight the pail down and crinkle stuffing.  You could modify this gift for any man, just add his favorites and maybe a gag item or too.
