Gucci Target

Sometimes it's just so hard not to love Target.  I mean, look at these mules, the knock-offs, the Gucci knock-offs to be exact.  While I'd love to own the $995 Gucci version, I can own the Target version for less than $30.  And that includes sales tax!

If you prefer the Gucci (and the price tag) you can see them here:

Essex Shirts New Dora Collection

Essex is known for their "horse show shirts" - the gold standard by which all others are judged in the hunter world.  I love the new Dora shirts from Essex which are a casual shirt that can be worn with jeans or with riding pants.  The quality of Essex is top notch too. 






New Coffee Table Books

There are a few new coffee table books worth noting and these will make fabulous gifts for the holidays (or a great hostess gift).

If you love fine linens then you'll appreciate this newly released book.  See it here.


House Beautiful is my favorite decorating magazine and their books are just as good.  This is a new release.  If you are in the decorating mode this will be a "must add" to your library. See it here.


I'm a big fan of William Yward's crystal so I can't wait to read this one.  See it here.

Chinoiserie Pumpkins

I am loving these Chinoiserie pumpkins.  They are faux but you can decorate around these - use your imagination.   See the Etsy site here.





Here are a few other really cute items from this site.  I am doing some serious holiday shopping here:

Penny Chenery Passes Away

The beloved Penny Chenery passed away, who is known to many as the lady behind Secretariat.  Secretariat was born at her father's Meadow Stud in Virginia and it was Penny who kept the stable going after her father passed away in 1973.  What a force she was and her accomplishments are too many to mention here. There is a nice overview of her life here.

In lieu of flowers, the Secretariat Foundation is offering special Penny Chenery Memorial fundraising projects on behalf of selected equine-related charities. For details, visit Secretariat.com.

Not Turning Down Navy

Navy is my new neutral this fall.  I have not worn a lot of navy blue in recent years but for some reason this season all signs in my wardrobe updates point to navy.  It started with a navy bag that I bought at the end of the season at Tory Burch and once I had that in place, I quit turning up my nose to navy.

Then I found this really cute dress at a local store, at a great price point, but it was navy! This dress is so cute in person.

But I needed shoes as my only navy shoes for fall and winter are my Tory Burch flats.  These are the right heel height.

And of course, I needed a coat!  The coat fetish continues unabated! So I ordered this in navy!


And I love this skirt which is getting good reviews right now.


And then I found this cute sweater which of course comes in navy!

What's not to love about navy?
