Jewel Drool: A Cuckoo Moment

It’s hard for me to leave the house without at least one piece of chunky jewelry on a finger, neck or wrist. These beautiful pieces are by A Cuckoo Moment, a German line designed by Lia Fallschessel. Python, ostrich, sapphire and topaz are just a few of the luxe materials you will find in their designs. Definitely drool-worthy. Visit them here.

Instantaneous Obsession: Burberry Beaded Leather Sandal

Yesterday’s warm weather prompted me to post on my love of Burberry’s Spring ’12 Collection. Today I ran across these beautiful sandals from the Burberry Prorsum line on Net-a-Porter. Aaaaaaaahhhhhh. There really aren’t words to describe my feelings for this shoe. I gasped when I saw them. Maybe that’s all that needs to be said……

I am already envisioning these with one of my printed Cathexis halter gowns….. What would you wear yours with?

Instantaneous Obsession: Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012

The weather has changed again here in Southern Cali and today it is a ridiculous 81 degrees. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy warm weather, just not when it is supposed to be COLD, which I would consider the norm for the END of November!  . . . But I digress, all this warmth and sunlight has got me drooling, yet again, over the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012 line. I fell in love with this collection at first sight back in September. The mix of textures, prints & rich colors make this collection luxe, yet tangible.


Burberry designer Christopher Bailey insists he was inspired by the British artist Henry Moore. However, there is undoubtedly a nod to the rich, resourceful continent of Africa by using similar prints, woven raffia textures and even neckline embellishments, which bear a striking resemblance to some regional tribal collars and necklaces.

Mood Board Mondays: Me in Pictures . . .

Oh Happy Day!!! Tomorrow I will be 40! I feel like I am still 25!!! Here’s to giving thanks for another year of life, filled with possibilities and promise. I began creating a mood board to post for Mood Board Monday’s (yes, I am a day late!) and I ended up with a “literal” Mood board, depicting how I am feeling on the eve of my 40th birthday! If I were to put these pictures into words that describe how I am feeling they would be: Happy, Sexy, Excited and Thankful!!! Thanks for celebrating life with me!!!  xo

Thankful Thursdays: Celebrating the Little Things

Life is made up of moments. Some good, some amazing, some . . . not so great, yet all are irreplaceable. With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, the festive feeling of the holiday season has made me pensive— in a good way! Around this time of year, things tend to get a little hectic in our household. So, I’ve decided to set aside Thursdays @ The LookBook Philosophy as a day to slow down, stop and share a moment of thanks. It doesn’t have to be anything monumental. Just a way to share a moment, a word, or photo of something I am grateful for that might otherwise be lost in the hustle and bustle of the day.

What are you thankful for today?
