How gorgeous are these pieces? I am so fortunate to be surrounded by them everyday! I work for ASHA; a jewelry collection in between fine and costume jewelry. In addition to jewelry, ASHA makes beautiful bags made from authentic snakeskin and chic resort wear made from the finest linen. Our pieces have been featured in InStyle, Elle, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Lucky (just to name a few) and are worn by women of every age. The designer, Ashley Dodgen-McCormick, is inspired by architectural motifs and vintage pieces from her trips around the world. Look out for a fun Q&A with her this week! Which pieces are your favorite?

Glimpses of some of my favorite summer looks. This summer I lived in lightweight blouses, bright dresses, boho skirts, white jeans, gold jewelry and espadrilles.

Someday I will have a closet like Carrie Bradshaw's in the Sex and the City movie. Floor to ceiling glass doors to protect my clothes, an entire wall of shelves for my shoes, and a dresser in the middle to hold dainty lingerie and precious jewels...

Hurricane Irene is in full force right now and it's raining cats and dogs! The upside of this hurricane is I've been able to watch hours of TV and eat every kind of junk food imaginable. I've watched everything from William and Catherine: A Royal Romance to Jersey Shore and eaten more Oreos and Cheez-its than I'd like to admit. Sometimes it's nice to be a home body and recharge after a busy work week. I'll be doing the same tomorrow since the weather is supposed to persist. What are everyone else's weekend plans?

A classic, grey shingle, beach house in the Hamptons. I imagined the inside looking something like this...

I figured I had to do a post on Kim K since everyone is buzzing about her right now. I absolutely cannot wait to see all of her wedding photos in People magazine! Despite a few fashion crimes, you have to hand it to Kim for being a pro at flattering her figure and mixing trendy pieces with classic ones. A few of my favorite outfits...

"The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun." -Carrie, Sex and the City
There's something so charming about exposed wood beams in a ceiling. It's a unique architectural element that draws the eye upward making the room feel bigger than it really is.

Missoni is one of my favorite brands, so I have been anxiously awaiting for this collection to hit stores. They are coming out with pillows, blankets, beach towels, luggage, clothing, accessories and more. I have my eye on the ballet flats, sweaters, and desk accessories!

My favorite piece of jewelry has to be my Michael Kors gold watch (the one pictured happens to be my boyfriend's, which is just slightly bigger than mine). I am loving this version of the watch, which has a bold navy blue face; perfect for the Fall.

I don't know about anyone else, but I am counting down the days until Kim Kardashian's wedding photos come out! I cannot wait to see everything from her dress to her table setting. One thing is for sure, it will be elaborate. I have no doubt it will be stunning, but I love an elegant and simple table setting as well. The first picture is the exact table setting I envision for my own wedding.

Classic and comfortable. I see this house being filled with tons of beautiful pieces from Restoration Hardware. I love the idea of having fireplaces in every room...even the bathroom. The only thing missing is a vintage Mercedes SL230 in the driveway.

I'm doing video of the week earlier than usual because I know I am going to be way too busy Monday to post it! I love this video of Kim Kardashian showing Heidi Klum how to do her signature smoky eye. A smoky eye is an absolute must when you have a night out on the town, and a toned down version looks beautiful in the daytime. When I do a smoky eye, I love using Bobbi Brown Gold Dust, MAC Club, then MAC Typographic.
I have a new found love for lace wedding dresses. I used to see lace wedding dresses as being old fashioned and outdated, but now I see how classic and elegant they are.
