Why Don't You...?

…order a balloon bouquet in a variety of colors, and permit them to float to the ceiling in your bedroom upon arrival? Cast open the curtains to allow sun to spill in, and spend the afternoon watching their pretty hues cast prism-like designs upon the walls.

…begin a savings account consisting of money made specifically for spending? Your first purchase? A Rebecca Minkoff pouch emblazoned with the words Trust Fund or Mine to set you on the right track!

…stuff your feet into a pair of bright red Hunter Boots, find a cute boy, and lose track of time kissing and dancing in the rain?

…drape yourself in jewelry – of the costume variety? A little sparkle never hurt anyone!

…complete your household chores in haute couture? There’s something so dreamy about washing the dishes in Derek Lam; walking the dog in DSQUARED2; taking out the trash in Thakoon. Mundane household chores seem so much more glamorous when you’re dressed to the nines!


Fashionably yours!
