I love this image of stacks of striped tees — it’s a similar to scene my dressing room at the J.Crew outlet this weekend; it took much willpower not to buy a full wardrobe of stripes.

The picture is from  Closet Visit, definitely click over and check out this amazing style blog that looks into closets of very stylish and talented women.

I wrote about the Warby Parker samples I received, polled readers on twitter for their suggestions, and finally decided on the Miles frames. My new glasses arrived and they’re easily my favorite accessory right now — I had lots of fun trying them on with different outfits and finally wearing them out with girlfriends this weekend. Plus it’s nice to be able to read street signs off in the distance again.

Just as my new specs arrived, Warby Parker has come out with even more styles. I’m already narrowing down choices for pair number two!

Last night my lovely boyfriend gifted me cookies and sharpies for Valentine’s Day — boy he knows me well! I spent the rest of the night geeking out and rearranging them in the Sharpie carrying-case. How did you celebrate?

Today is the last and final installment of my guest posts over on Project Gadabout. I’m sharing my shopping treasure map with all of my favorite places to blow my paycheck. If you want to see where you can get all of the goodies below, click over and check it out!

I’m posting again over on Project Gadabout today; you can take a sneak peek into what I lug around in my giant purse everyday! (Hint: a lot of stuff). Click here to read more.

Two exciting mentions that I had to share…the lovely Alaina of Live Creating Yourself, who created my blog header and background, is posting over on her blog today about the inspiration for the design. Head over and check out the rest of the inspiration boards.

And I was quite excited to see that my little bedroom makeover was featured on Dwell Studio’s “How You Dwell” column on their blog. I’m blushing a bit at the compliment — I’ve been a long time fan of their founder Christiane Lemieux’s designs.

My Warby Parker samples arrived yesterday; I was impressed with all of your rave reviews after my first post so I gave them a go. I just had to share the adorable way they’re packaged and sent to customers — they get a big thumbs up in the product packaging category.  And they look cute on too, the top and bottom pair are my favorite so far… it’s hard to choose just one!

I had an amazing birthday weekend. My friend threw me a fabulous cocktail party on Saturday night, I had a relaxing Sunday, and then I took Monday off for my actual birthday and had a long lunch that turned into cupcakes that then turned into more cocktails. See that cupcake below? It’s a cinnamon chai cupcake with sticky caramel and pecans. Yup. Be jealous.

Plus I got some awesome gifts, like all new bathroom linens and Kate Spade’s Twirl perfume from my family, a chevron bag that has my name written all over it, and an adorable print of stacked suitcases from a friend’s etsy shop. I’m still playing around with hanging up my new print in different spots in the apartment, I can’t make a choice because I want one in every room.

The present that takes the cake is my new Dwell Studio Draper bedding from my boyfriend, I’ve been talking about that set for months and am SO excited to wash them tonight so I can get them on my bed and take some pictures to share!

Thanks to everyone for all of the sweet comments here and on Twitter, it was a spectacular birthday!

I recently went to the eye doctor and found out that my prescription changed; I got new contacts but passed on the glasses since I rarely wear them. Then when I got home I realized that I rarely wear them because I can’t see out of them and they don’t look that great.

I want some smart new glasses and have heard great things about Warby Parker… but I’m even more impressed after checking out their website, here is why they are awesome: You can upload a photo of yourself and “try-on” the frames online (I did this and it worked really well). Also, all of their glasses cost $95.00, whoa deal! And they will send you  5 pairs of glasses  to try on at home… for free!

It seems almost too good to be true… but I might try it out anyway because their glasses are freaking cute! Have you or anyone you know ever bought glasses from them? Do tell!
