BW-5-Final

I took these photos a few weeks ago, so you can see that I’m still in clutch-covering-my-midsection mode. :-)

I’ve paired these Foster Grant sunglasses a lot with color and neutrals, but now that fall is rolling around (it was 55 degrees in Houston this weekend!  except I was in Miami, where it was 88, oops…) I’m gravitating towards a lot of black and white.  There’s something so chic and classic about a simple black and white pairing, and it’s the perfect way to work in my favorite other trends, like leather embellishments (swoon). 

It’s funny: when I first got these sunglasses, I fell totally in love with them, but I figured they were a bit of a novelty, with the pink frames and mirrored lenses.  But as the months (and seasons) have gone on and I keep reaching for them, I think they’ve fully achieved ‘classic’ status at this point.  I wear them as much as my Chanel pair (probably more, honestly), and they were literally pennies in comparison!  It’s the best feeling when you find a bargain that turns into a total wardrobe staple, and these were absolutely my favorite summer find. 

Foster Grant sunglasses, gifted Piperlime top (now on sale for $16!), Zara skirt, Halson Heritage clutch, Express watch.

Noritake China!

October 7th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Sugarlaws Noritake 1

As many of you guys know, I’ve been a longtime convert to Noritake’s beautiful china patterns — I’ve used their pieces for everything from our first dinner party in our new house to my birthday to the Fourth of July to breakfast on Thanksgiving morning.  Their pieces are casual but so elegant, and I’m constantly finding new ways to mix and match their different patterns.

So I’m super excited to announce that we’ve partnered up for a flash sale this week!  We’ve collected all of the patterns that you’ve seen on Sugarlaws over the years and Noritake is offering a 40% discount on all of them if you use the coupon code KATY40 (UPDATE: the flash sale is over but you can still use the coupon code SUGARLAWS for 15% off any pattern on the site!)!  It’s the biggest sale they’ve ever done and I am so honored to have gotten to pick the pieces!  These are the patterns that I pull out all the time, from parties to casual dinners at home, and I know you guys will love them as much as I do.

And I have to introduce you to a new favorite of mine: the Hampshire pattern!  I completely fell in love with this set the moment I saw it — it’s so simple and timeless and perfect for the upcoming holidays!  I couldn’t resist mixing the gold and platinum patterns for a slightly modern feel, but they’re equally gorgeous on their own!

The best thing about beautiful china is that it makes setting the table so easy — all I had to use to create this table setting was a small bouquet of fall flowers and a handful of mini pumpkins from the grocery store (the napkin rings are left over from hosting Thanksgiving last year).  But you’d never know how easy it was from the final product — fine china makes everything look so gorgeous! 

So check out the flash sale this week and use the coupon SUGARLAWS for 15% off any pattern on the site!.  Hopefully you guys can pick up a few of your favorites!

the little black dress

Now that Fashion Week is over (and almost all of September too!), I’m settling back into life in Texas.  This month has been crazy busy, and October is shaping up to be about the same, so when I think of my go-to pieces for fall, I’m mostly thinking about looks that are practical, comfortable, and polished.  Basically, the perfect trio!

So I totally fell in love with White House Black Market’s Instantly Slimming dress!  The shape is so flattering — it seriously creates curves all by itself (I definitely don’t usually have them!).  I’m usually wary of clingy fabrics, but this dress has a ton of stretch and built-in shapewear to keep everything smoothed out.  And WHBM is doing a super cute giveaway — if you Tweet or Instagram a picture in their clothes and use the hashtag #WearWhatWorks, you’re entered to win a $2500 gift card (their clothes are really budget-friendly, so could do a lot of damage with that baby)!

WHBM Instantly Slimming dress, gifted B. Makowsky tote, Kenneth Jay Lane necklace (similar here and here!).
