What I wouldn't give to be in Saratoga tomorrow to watch the magnificent American Pharoah run yet another race for the history books. For those lucky enough to be in New York, an estimated 15,000 watched him take his final gallop before the $1.6 million Travers Stakes runs tomorrow afternoon. The New York Racing Association opened its gates free of charge so fans could watch this American legend train during a special session reserved for Travers entrants.

Tune your televisions to The Travers on Saturday. It's likely that he'll have only one more race, The Breeders' Cup before he is officially retired. What an American treasure this horse has become.
I've been finishing up the living room renovation (will blog about it when it's all done) but have decided that I need a bar cart and have the perfect spot for one. There are so many to choose from but here are some that I like the most.....Society Social has the best selection by the way.
Loving this one from Serena and Lilly but I think it's too informal for my room. Screams ocean to me. Great size and price too.
This is one of my favorites from Barclay Butera but it only comes in black so it won't work in my room. Looks like something Ralph would create don't you think?
These are from Society Social and many are out of stock but they are great looking!
I realize it's not winter, yet but if the predictions are correct, we're in for a cold one, again. A new product out there from EIS, heated shirts, supposedly make you feel 5 degrees warmer on those bitter cold days. They will be the rage this winter for sure and others also make shirts that make this claim.
Here's what they say about the technology behind these shirts:
Mega Heat Technology
This self-heating technology (no mesh design)
is embedded in the fabric and heats your body temperature by 5 degrees.
Your movement generates the heating effect and will keep you warm. Also
has UPF 50+
Microscopic nano particle attached to fabric fibers make these performance features long lasting. Not a fabric finish.
Normal wash, quick drying, and no shrinkage.
Our special wicking fabric helps control body odor.
I haven't tried one of these yet but I like the cool shirts and ride in the all summer long.
Fall fashions are not my favorites but I have my eye on few things this season so far. A trip to New York in the coming weeks will allow me to shop a bit. So far here are a few things I am loving. This dress from Tory Burch would be great with tights, wedges and boots when it gets cooler. Loving navy right now too.
Also love this bag from Tory Burch in either this blue or a deep green.
The coat fetish continues. This cape is from J Crew and also comes in black. I think I prefer black.
This green wool dress also from J Crew looks much better up close. It is already selling out. It also comes in pink. This would be such a versatile piece for work, weddings, funerals, cocktails or whatever.
I love a great pair of heels but my feet can't tolerate them anymore. So I love a classic pair of flats and these will never go out of style so it's worth the investment when you consider how long they last. So I decided to round up 10 styles
that will never go out of style; in fact, you’ve probably seen at least a
few of them in your mother or grandmother’s closet. Here’s my list of 10
classic flats every woman should own.
1) Ferragamo Varina Flats
We wore these when I was in college, so am I aging myself? They've come back or maybe they never left.
2) Belgian Loafers
My all time favorites. These are like wearing slippers all day. Worth a trip to New York to pick up a few pairs of these.
3) Tory Burch Reva Flats
4) Driving Mocs
Tod's, Manalo Blahnick, Gucci or even Prada. They all work!
