get cuffed.

Happy Wednesday, glitter girls!

We are huge arm candy fans. If we could stack bracelets to our elbows, we would. The easiest way to create an arm party is to start with a fantastic cuff and then throw on all your other random skinny bracelets. We promise, it will all look good together! Here are  our top five places to start:

C. Wonder Cuff
this leopard print calf hair stud cuff from C. Wonder instantly makes a statement.
Tory Burch Cuff
L and I have had Tory Burch lucite cuffs for *years*. a must-have for your jewelry box.
Juicy Couture Cuff
juicy couture gets it right with this pave pyramid leather cuff.
Gold Gatsby Cuff
get fancy with this gold gatsby cuff from Bauble Bar!
J Crew Leopard Cuff
ohmygodohmygodohmygod this enamed leopard cuff from J Crew tops our christmas list this year.

Hi ladies!

I was recently invited to a Jezebel Magazine happy hour at C. Wonder: the latest and greatest store in Lenox Mall. Y’all. This store is beyond and looked quite familiar… C. Wonder was started by Chris Burch, Tory’s ex. Awkward. Moving on.

The concept is preppy designs, bold prints, enameled bangles—at average prices less than $40. In personalized fitting rooms, shoppers can customize lighting and music. There’s on-site engraving and monogramming too!

How could you say no to this adorable invite!?

Happy Tuesday, glitter girls!

So we totally fell down on the job and didn’t do our Monday post. Hope your start to the week wasn’t as hectic as ours!

We’re probably telling you something you already know…but animals (not animal prints, but actual animals) are a huge trend for fall. Designers and taste-makers are moving away from animal prints like leopard and zebra and using the actual animals themselves. We love the resulting preppy/winky vibe.

Our hands-down fave animal is the fox–smart, sneaky…but still cute. Here are our picks:

Tory Burch Fox Cuff
the perfect addition to your fall arm party. tory burch suede cuffs, $145 each.
Anthropologie Fox Top
obsessed with the rouched sleeves on this top. Anthropologie, $48
Zara Fox Top
layer this under a navy blazer. Zara shell, $35.90.
Asos Fox Scarf
the perfect fall scarf. Asos, $21.11.
Sydney Evan Fox Earrings
L’s birthday is coming up. HINT HINT. sydney evan, $1300.

What’s your favorite animal trend for fall?

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

Breast cancer is a cause close to our glitter hearts. L’s mom and mother-in-law and J’s aunt are proud breast cancer survivors. October is breast cancer awareness month, and some of our favorite companies have made it super easy to support this worthy cause. Check out some of our faves below.  Shopping has never been so satisfying.

1. Tory Burch is giving 15 percent of the sales of limited-edition pink wrap bracelets ($95) and hardshell phone cases ($48) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

2. Essie is participating in “31 days of pink” by featuring thirty-one unique shades of pink polish (one for every day of the month) in October. Our faves are Check Up, a bright bubble-gum pink, and Good Morning Hope, a paler pink hue.

Essie Pink Polish
we didn’t need any encouragement to paint our nails pink starting October1…but we do appreciate Essie’s donation to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

3. Yummy candle company Archipelago has partnered with Breast Cancer Angels. Fifty percent of all proceeds of the Bougie De La Vie collection will be donated to underprivileged cancer patients and their families.

a delightful blend of jasmine, fresh cut grass and hydrangea.

4. Up-and- coming golf apparel brand Chase54 (previously featured here) is donating proceeds from these cute men’s and women’s tees to Save The Ta.Tas. Do us a solid and follow Chase54 on Facebook and Twitter.

new york fashion week picks.

New York Fashion Week comes to a close tomorrow.  This is probably a good thing for our day jobs, given the inordinate amount of time L and I have spent obsessing over show gossip researching the web for photos.  Here are our three favorite shows:

1. Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2013 RTW: “She’s a sexy tomboy with a bit of bon vivant,” Rebecca Minkoff said backstage before her show. We would say that’s pretty accurate. This was absolutely one of our favorite shows. And it didn’t hurt that Ryan Lochte was sitting front row…

R Minkoff Dress Print
*obsessed* with the print and neckline.
R Minkoff Dress Short
so many fun details, from the pockets to the slits at the neck. perfection.
R Minkoff Bag
GSU gameday anyone?

2. Tory Burch Spring 2013 RTW: As previously documented here and here, we have just a smallish obsession with Tory Burch (the woman AND the brand).  So it will come as no surprise that we are in love with her latest. The gorgeous colors, great fabrics, fun shoes and accessories… we die.

Tory Burch 3
fringe detail! and those SHOES!
Tory Burch 2
the chunky necklace added to the soft dress works.

i can totally see myself wearing this at a garden party in the Hamptons.

3. J Crew Spring 2013 RTW: Honestly, does anyone even remember when J Crew was just a catalog?  Jenna Lyons has so *totally* revamped this brand into a quirky-sexy powerhouse, its origins as a go-to for boring-yet-dependable basics seem unfathomable.  We fell hard for the latest genius mix of prints and materials.

J Crew S/S 2013 Look
will everyone just start mixing stripes and florals already?
J Crew S/S 2013 Look
clean hair & makeup let the pattern(s) shine.
J Crew S/S 2013
the finishing touch? minty pumps. naturally.

We’re dying to know: what were your #nyfw faves?

2. Football: Whether you’re cheering on the Falcons from your fave watering hole (it will be The Ivy for me as per usual) or watching Georgia Southern take down The Citadel in Charleston, you’ll need an outfit. We don’t wear jerseys around here, ladies…

Organize by color –

Showcase favorites –

friday five.

Ah, Friday…we thought you would never get here! Here’s what we’re wearing/doing/loving for the next forty-eight hours.

1. Nails. We’ve done mint, we’ve done lilac…this weekend we’re rocking this pretty yellow shade. NYC Lexington Yellow is the perfect yellow: not too neon, not too school bus. Sure, this sunny shade screams summer…but we also love it for fall. Picture it with grey, black and cream.

2. Fresh Flowers. Whether you get them from Bi-Lo (L) or the Farmer’s Market (J), fresh flowers make the *biggest* difference at home. Here are some cute ideas you can totally do with a grocery store bouquet.

Pink Tulips
so pretty and simple, by ariston flowers nyc.

not too girly, by a city wedding.
Pink Peonies
your closet needs some floral love, too. via lucky magazine.

3. Sweet Treat. Making these Sea Salt Fudge Brownies on Sunday night sure would ease the transition to Monday.

4. Movie. It is so seriously hot right now. Watching Celeste and Jesse Forever in a dark, cool movie theater sounds like a plan, right? Check out this excellent list of movies to see  before Labor Day, brought to you by The Daily Candy. (In Atlanta? Check out Cinebistro in Town Brookhaven! You can’t beat having a glass of wine and a great meal while watching a movie.)

Rashida Jones & Andy Samberg

in my bag part 2.

Alright, ladies… Now that you’ve seen what’s in Laura’s bag, here’s a peek into mine:

just a few things…

1. Tory Burch Robinson Satchel: I absolutely adore this bag. The color is perfect. The size is perfect. No complaints. I’ve had her for almost and year and you can barely tell! I’m hard on my bags, y’all…

2. Kate Spade Lacey Wallet: This actually sat in my closet for a while until I purchased the Robinson Satchel. The gold compliments the cognac color perfectly!

3. Missoni for Target notepad: I’m sure most of you are familiar with the craze that was Missoni for Target. I was lucky to scoop these super cute notepads and a few other things! Let’s face it, I always have something to jot down.

4. Narciso Rodriguez for her eau de toilette: I’m pretty picky when it comes to perfume! Narciso Rodriguez has been a staple in my bag for a while. I love that it’s perfect for day or night and lasts most of the day!

5. Buxom Lip Polish: The color (Sandy) is perfect and it gives a nice plumping effect! It lasts a while which is also a plus…

6. Other random products: Colgate Pro Clinical: I HAVE to brush my teeth throughout the day. A little obsessive about it. Hand Sanitizer: A little obsessive about this too… Hair ties: So much cuter than your run-of-the-mill elastics! Ray-Ban Aviators: As L said, you just CAN’T beat this classic style! Very Top Gun. RIP Tom-Kat. Earbuds for the gym, business cards, mints…

the real deal.

SO, we must know… What’s in YOUR bag?

in my bag.

Is it just me, or is the In The Bag feature the best thing in Marie Claire magazine? I’m always fascinated by the random stuff celebs have in their bags (rabbit’s feet, lottery tickets, etc). Jennifer and I decided to do our own version. Here’s what’s in mine…Jenny will post hers next week.

Laura's Tory Burch Amanda Hobo
a bag full of my favorite stuff.

First, the bag. My Tory Burch “Amanda” Hobo is the perfect size–not too big, not too small. Don’t  hate – she was a birthday gift from my mom. Now, for what’s inside…

i made this collage with ribbet!

1. Orange Hobo International Wallet. We sell a TON of these at Social, and for good reason. The Lauren holds an insane amount of stuff, and it totally works as a clutch, too.

2. Eucerin Original Healing Cream

3. Nail polish, of course. I’m currently wearing Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac (I want a job naming nail polish shades). Jennifer and I both love Essie’s Good To Go topcoat.

4. Pink Sharpie Ultra Fine Point permanent marker and 5. Kate Spade planner – This is the seventh year I have used one of these to organize my life. Some people can use Google calendar or their phone or whatever to keep everything straight.  Not me.  I am a paper person.

Kate Spade Planner
love love love the pretty illustrations

6. Bobby pins – I’ve got bangs issues! Mine are plain (blah)…I like these better.

7. NYC City Proof Gloss – I have neither the patience nor the budget for expensive makeup.  If I can’t buy it at WalMart, it’s probably not going to happen. {{There is no Sephora in Statesboro, in case you didn’t know.}} I’m a big fan of NYC–super cheap stuff that really works.

NYC City Proof Lip Gloss in Everlasting Blossom
seriously, this is how many tubes i buy at a time.

8. Ray Ban Aviators – The only sunglasses I will ever wear.

Plus other stuff like a mini-version of this toothpaste, Benefit Dandelion blush, (another gift from mom–anything nice I have is a gift from her),  my little boy’s silver rattle (for sentimental reasons–he’s definitely past the rattle stage now), headphones for the gym, and a corkscrew. Kidding. No, I’m not.

What’s in your bag?

XO, Laura
