You Need This: Purity Cardigan by Velvet
So, I have the privilege of working in a very casual environment full of people who have amazing taste. Not too long ago, I had an particularly stylish lady in my office for an incredibly productive meeting… mostly because at the end of it, she had sent me links to purchase her entire outfit. My favorite piece, though was this cardigan by Velvet:
You guys, I wear it ALL. THE. TIME. It makes my dresses funkier and my jeans more polished. It’s perfect for a plane ride and is giving my plain t-shirts new life. Basically, it’s becoming my favorite article of clothing.
Its Closet MVP status was solidified when G and I were catching up on The New Girl last night and GREG spotted Cece… in my cardigan!
Obviously, I had to rock it today. Witness:
Join Cece, my cute co-worker, and me and get yours HERE!

My Secret Consignment Addiction EXPOSED.
I’m a consignment newbie. I recently purged my closet of outdated (and v. gently loved for a time) clothes, shoes, and accessories, and instead of taking them straight to Goodwill, I brought them over to Labels Resale Boutique on Paces Ferry in Buckhead. And over the course of the last month, I’ve made a smooth $200 so far!
I first heard about Labels from a super fashionable friend of Rosh’s who was wearing a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps I complimented. She informed me she’d snagged them at Labels for less than half of their retail sticker - and she ROCKED them! The store (or stores, rather, since there are actually 3 of them sprawling Paces Ferry near the Buckhead Whole Foods) has won Jezebel Magazine’s “Best Consignment in Atlanta” bragging rights for the past three years running. So, they are legit.
I turned a portion of my dough earned from selling off an old Michael Kors watch, a David Yurman necklace, a Marc Jacobs bracelet, and a wool Burberry scarf into a pair of resale 4 inch black Ferragamo pumps in perfect condition and a pair of brown quilted Hunter rainboots for next to nothing. Now, I’m officially obsessed and regularly stalking Labels’ well-maintained Instagram account (@labelslately) featuring loads of previously owned/gently cared for Chanel, Gucci, LV, Christian Louboutin, Tory Burch, etc.
Maybe now it will be your secret addiction, as well…

I Wished It…and It Came TRUE!
Now all I need is Blue Bell cookies ‘n cream ice cream to have veggies hidden in it, and I will be able to eat chips + ice cream ALL day long and it will be TOTALLY healthy!

A Post about Fudge.
So yeah, this stuff is legit. Atlanta’s own Sweet Surrender Fudge Fixx.
I bought that little guy the other day at Roost Gifts & Decor in the Toco Hills Shopping Center. It was the best decision I made that day. And it was perfectly portable so I had no trouble finishing it off in my car on the way home. Sweet Surrender knows how to satisfy a sugar crazing like WHOA.
