  1. CB I hate perfume is my new obsession. I have been wearing "Walking in the Air" (smells like a snowy day). I can't wait to wear the beach scent for summer and burning leaves for fall. I also found out they have one that smells like the library! How cool is that?

  2. the boots the boots the boots! i'm so in love.

  3. Someday, if I ever make it big, I am going to hire Erica to be my personal style consultant. She has such great taste (and those boots are even better in person).


  4. I love those clogs! (I can't believe I just said that).


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
