Dedicated to sharing stylishly beautiful, accessible finds (the chic part) from the many and varied places where chic lives (the eclectic part). Because chic is everywhere.


Target Detour

I went to Target for flower foam (don't ask), and left with a tee-shirt.  Or several.  This is why Target is a dangerous place to shop for basics.  Invariably I get sidetracked by something irresistible that wasn't on my shopping list, but is now in my closet.

Today's temptation was dreamy soft, surf-inspired tee-shirts featuring art of local artist Jeff Canham.  They have summer written all over them.  And now I'm more ready than ever, thanks to my detour.

$14.99, at Target.


Varsity, all the way

If you've always wanted to don a varsity jacket here's your chance to do it, chic-ly.  

From Gap, $89.95.


Treasure Hunting - the bar cart

I'm beginning to think I'm the only person without a well-styled bar cart.  They're everywhere.  In fact it's starting to feel like my holiday might be incomplete without one.  I spotted this lovely at Target; it's brushed brass and wood and gets rave reviews online (in case you need a second opinion).  Throw in the decanter & fox shaker and you're ready to roll.



My new shoe

Tennies are as close as I get to an addiction.  Gola's are my new favorites.



The upside of missing out

I totally missed out on Isabel Marant for H&M; not because I didn't know about it, but becuase mob shopping is the stuff of nightmares for me.  Alas, everything good is now sold out.

I was, however, in H&M a few weeks ago and spotted this dress which while not Isabel Marant, is quite fabulous (and reminds me me of an IRO dress from last season that was 12x more expensive).  The neck and armholes are trimmed in faux leather - details, details. 


All or Nothing

I tend to be an all or nothing kind of person.  For the last 6+ months I've been giving my all to an exciting new venture which is launching soon (take a peek).  As a result, as many of you have pointed out, I've done nada on the blog.  Not even a peep.  I'm slowing finding my way back - bear with me.  I'm going to give it my all, in a dabbling kind of way.

This to die for bag is from Baggu for West Elm. I have no where to go, but I just want to pack it.  

Available here, $99.  Also with a red bottom.


To (tie) Die For

Summer perfection - to (tie) die for.

Raquel Allegra fitted tie dye dress, $220.  Also available in sand, here.  


Summer Glow

I recently rediscovered Cost Plus World Market (and found it very easy to do a lot of damage, quickly).  Several of these glass lantern candleholders in purple ended up in my shopping cart.  I'm envisioning them on my deck, or potentially strung from a tree. 
Ribbed glass lantern candleholders available here, $2.99 - $7.99.


Love, love these jeans by Mother Denim.  
Mother "Barefoot Princess" available here, $265.

Camo Clutch

Claire Vivier does it again.
