{cockatoo}

I’ve always been a fan of the using the pantone colors to influence my clothing purchases, nail colors and even home decor. {see spring 2012 colors here} I’ve decide to start a little series about the pantone colors for each season,  “pantone palate”,  and bring you my favorite options for each shade {all under $50}. This is also a great way to introduce color into your wardrobe. Today’s color is Cockatoo!

their way & the save way

I have been a huge fan of the shape of the Celine luggage tote. The shape is structured and classic and the color combinations are perfect. I have always dreamed of purchasing one but, let’s be real, who has that kinda cash lying around. I recently came across a very similar styled bag and it’s just what I need to fill the void of not owing a Celine luggage tote. So until I win the lottery or the money fairies drop by my house, this look for less will do!

absolutely “wonder”ful

Before heading to NYC I read up on new and upcoming events, designers and store openings. I came across one person who had always sparked my interest. Chris Burch, the ex-husband of Tory Burch. I have come to learn he is a retailing genius! He recently opened C.Wonder,  a boutique in SOHO {there are 3 other locations as well}, and let me tell you something, it may have been what dreams are made of.

Holiday music, great {unique and affordable} gift items, a very helpful and colorful staff. I absolutely loved it! The merchandising was perfect and the selection was on point! I highly recommend you visit the store next time you are in NYC! No plans to travel to NYC? Don’t worry you can shop online {but, I will tell you the in-store selection is much larger}.

jeweled clutch

A small jeweled handbag has been on my wish list for some time now {it’s on my shopping list for my upcoming NYC trip as well}. I feel like every time I find one I love it’s over $100! I came across these two precious bags at Urban Outfitters. So unique and I love the long chain that is included. This is the perfect accessory for the holidays!

Ralph Lauren has done an amazing job for breast cancer awareness. The Pink Pony has become a symbol for inspiration and support.  I have always been a fan of shopping for a cause, and Ralph Lauren offers great incentives.
