Haute Hostess Gift: roots Candles

It is always great to have extra little gifts hidden somewhere for those last minute invites. Let's face it, you don't want to be the one at the party without a token of appreciation. roots candles are perfect! I am a candle lover and these truly freshen any room in minutes with gorgeously blended mixtures.

roots candles are cleverly named after named Boston neighborhoods. This is the latest in candles using 100% soy wax so it can double as a heavenly scented body moisturizer. The growing candle company was founded by Erin Coyne from Everett or in roots terms "The Dirty E". Every candle is high end soy wax, top shelf, paraben free fragrance oils with all cotton wicks. This is what allows you to use the trendy product's cooled down wax as a smooth, fragrant lotion. Now, your hostess has two gifts in one!

roots just opened a store in Wakefield, MA
78 Albion Street
Wednesday-Friday: 10-5pm
Saturday 10-3pm

These jewels feature all kinds of treasured charms like wishbones, evil eyes, daisies, and for some fun, handcuffs. The colors are vibrant and the beads are stunning. They are another conversation piece to put on any wrist!

A $10 Wardrobe Staple- The Cape

I am so glad I walked into Boomerang's yesterday. You never know what you may find in a consignment store but this one in the South End holds some amazing finds. I have been adoring all the fall capes swinging around and I happen to stumble upon a Laundry by Shelli Segal brown cape left on the table in the back. Score! Missing a button, no big deal. Hole in the front, I feel a big discount coming. For $10 the cape was mine. With some thread and a broach, this will be an original staple to check off the list!

Item of the Week: Mulberry for Target Patent Satchel

I have been waiting for the arrival of Mulberry to hit Target stores since I found out a couple months ago. Well, on Sunday it did, and many bags flew off Target shelves everywhere in hours. Mulberry has been seen on everyone from Kate Bosworth to Leighton Meester. Alexa Chung had one made for her and named after her. For $15.99- $49.99, you too could sport these designs at such a low cost.
I decided on the Patent Leather Satchel. The perfect size for night and day, this bag is beautiful with brass detailing and a lovely black shine. Pair one with an all black ensemble for that extra accessory to get you noticed. It comes with an adorable key chain and holds my I phone inside with the perfect sized pocket. I LOVE it!

Check Target locations and online for availability.

My lovely ladies over at Ku De Ta survived the fire that destroyed their unique boutique. Well, they are back and with a whole new look (think glam chandeliers) this Saturday! I have waited since May to browse through all the beautiful dresses and pieces from labels like Misope, William Rast, Miss Me, Pixie Dust, William Rast and Ya. The jewelry collection is insane and they feature the hard to find House of Harlow. Come, shop, admire and sip some pink bubbly while saving 10% on anything you buy. You will not regret it!

What I Want Now: Banana Republic Chandra Clog Boots

I want these amazing Banana Republic Chandra Clog boots! The fashion gods say clogs are in and this is my take on the trend.  With the fall finally here, I dream of wearing them with my favorite BDG skinny jeans and a warm faux-fur coat out for a stroll. The heel is perfect and comfortable enough to walk in! These are especially unique because the wooden heel is an unexpected touch paired with black. It's all in the details!

Blouses are Back!

I am loving all this season's fabulous blouses. They look great alone or layered with a vest or sheath dress. I also love this style with jeans for a more casual feel. Be daring and try some color or start out with a classic white blouse.

I adore this leopard print blouse from Urban Outfitters a for trendy, sexy look.
