Map Quest

During my holiday shopping I came upon these adorable maps from It's a family run website and online store with the cutest gift ideas. The maps below run from 35 to 60 euros plus shipping. Now the only thing left to do is pick which color and city I want!

Belle of the Ball

Let's be honest. When it comes to party dresses, the Marchesa designers take the prize. Everything they make is absolutely breathtaking and lustworthy. You'd be the belle of any ball in one of their concoctions so If you're lucky enough to afford one, go for it! You won't forget it!

My favorites are the first one, the black "starry" one, and the beautiful white flared one with a bead cage top.

Frida Gustavsson

I absolutely love Frida Gustavsson. There is something about her that makes her look like she belongs in a Tim Burton cartoon and at the same time she looks like she'd fit in with the dolls on my shelf. She is stunning and silly and sexy all at the same time. I love love love her if you can't already tell!

Sheer Evil

A little bit school girl, a little bit church, A LOT naughty, sheer and lace. There has always been a fascination with the sexy catholic schoolgirl fantasy and frankly it is a twisted fascination, but at the end of the day it can make one hell of a good outfit!

Snow Bunny

It's official, the holiday season is upon us. The starbucks cups are now covered in snowy scenes, christmas music floats through the air, the holiday market is set up in Union Square, the Salvation Army has bell ringers posted outside of every grocery store, the glorious holiday windows are underway, and the Rockerfellar tree is up! I cannot get over how much I love the holiday season. Everything is just buzzing and even the coldest hearts melt. This season my wish is to spend as much quality time with my loved ones as I can, possibly in the D&G winter lodge ensembles. Here's to a wonderful season!

A Little Pick Me Up

I saw a woman walking her dog a couple months back, wearing these shoes, and I decided right then and there that I had to have them. Yes, yes they are very unpractical, but I recently saw them featured in many of the outfits on only solidifying the fact that they must be in my closet!
