One of my many hats is to work behind the scenes ever so often at Nordstrom fashion shows in San Diego. It’s so much fun to touch all these amazing swoon-worthy designer clothes that are outside my budget. Not to mention, the models make everything look like perfection! Frankly, it’s not fair. Being behind the scenes can be a lot of work but it’s a lot of fun too. Here are shots of some of my favorite looks backstage.
Every spring, inevitably floral prints make their way back into our wardrobe. I can’t help but giggle a little inside when I think about spring florals because of the line from Devil Wears Prada where Miranda drawls, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” This year, it’s not just bright florals in general, roses and peonies are having their turn in the limelight. You guys know I have a small obsession with roses so I’m in fashion heaven! I’ve put together a handful of my favorite prints available right now. Happy lusting!

1) SOPHIA WEBSTER FOR J.CREW COLLECTION
Anybody that even kind of knows me knows that I have a teeny tiny (ok, HUGE!) obsession with shoes. Like, it’s unhealthy. So when I got wind of the Sophia Webster for J.Crew collection, I nearly had a shoe induced heart attack! The only problem with the unveiling at NYFW is that I have to wait until Spring 2014 to get my hands on them! The torture!!
2) THE HOME. T
I love when fashion and charity collide. It’s impossible to have buyer’s remorse when you know your purchase is doing some good! The Home T-shirt is a great way to do good AND be fashionable… basically the best combo ever, right? For every purchase, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to multiple sclerosis research. Now show your state some love!
You read that right! On this week’s Lust List is Overalls! Remember those pants with a bib look you probably rocked in the 90s? They’re baaaaaack! So turn up some Nirvana and slip into some overalls, right now! Make them a little more modern by trying them in leather (or faux!) or a dark wash denim. I like these and these.
4) KATE SPADE SPRING 2014 COLLECTION
I have spot reserved in my heart just for Kate Spade. The colorful girlyness is basically me spot on. I feel like they are reaching into my brain and making clothes specifically for me and my style. This season was no exception! Inspired by traveling through Europe, this collection is fun, flirty, and totally wearable! Is it Spring 2014, yet?
This is one of my favorite looks from the collection…
5) THE WORLD ACCORDING TO KARL BOOK RELEASE
The illusive and always sunglass clad Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, is now sharing some words of wisdom with us underlings in his new book The World According to Karl. His notorious wit (in both the good and shocking spectrum) are synonymous with the man’s impeccable style. I’m looking forward to this collection of word gems. Here’s a small sampling of Karl Quotes: “Think pink. But don’t wear it.” “I like everything to be washable. Including myself.” “I only know how to play one role: me.” Releases September 17, 2013.
