You may remember a few weeks ago I posted about the amazing power, and my obsession currently, with capes. Specifically the amazing capes of Leslie Tessler. Well on a rainy Saturday here in October I was able to snag one of those said capes and also spend the day with one of my gal pals, Anna from In Honor of Design. Even though it was down pouring all day, and my hair is a hot mess, I had to share a few pics with you all. How ridiculously gorge is Anna who coincidentally is sharing her full outfit today as well (click HERE)? Anyway, ignore the hair and focus on the capes and Happy Halloween Loves! truly, MKR
A month or so ago you may have seen THIS picture on Instagram and today I’m thrilled to finally reveal why exactly I was fraternizing with some alpacas? Sweet Lemon Magazine‘s fall issue.

See the full interview HERE, and big hugs to my SL ladies Paris and Tiffany, plus Jamie and Brielle who made the day possible. truly, MKR

Sometimes on a shoot with so many moving pieces it’s just easiest to dress yourself and smile for the camera. Or that’s what I at least thought. The dressing myself part was pretty easy. I say pretty easy because if you remember this shoot happened in June and trying to pull for fall in the middle of a Southern summer…well that was a challenge. Luckily my go-to, Bloomingdales at Lenox solved that problem. However, I will never be the “model” in a shoot I’m styling or running again. Talk about craziness. Complete and utter craziness. Though I did get to wear the most gorgeous flower crown my Gertie Mae’s so technically it was worth it. Happy Thursday Loves, I hope you’ve enjoyed my little welcome to fall (Part I, Part II, Video). truly, MKR

My love for bags is no secret. No secret. And a few weeks ago my love was bursting at the seams when a box of Zac Zac Posen handbags arrived at my door. Best mail day ever! I’ve adored Zac’s bags for quite some time now, and each season I really do believe they just keep getting better and better. The Eartha which is on it’s way to becoming a classic, now has a mini version which I die over. Then there’s the tassel clutch? I can’t even begin to explain how major the tassel clutch is. And the PVC and the emerald?! Well I adore them all.
And because I like to share, and because I truly couldn’t choose a favorite, we’re gifting one lucky winner with a Zac Zac Posen bag ($450 value) of their choice (with 5 choices to choose from…the PVC Eartha, the Emerald Eartha Mini, the Gold Pebbled Clutch, the Colorblock Clutch, and the Gold Pebbled Tassel bag). I mean how do you choose? Though that is a problem I’m sure we’d all like to have. And if you can’t wait to see if you’re the lucky winner (which I totally get) you can shop Zac’s fabby bags at Bloomies, ShopBop, Zappos, and Neimans to name a few. Happy Monday, and good luck! truly, MKR
P.S. you may have noticed there was no TWI (this week I) yesterday. Sorry about that, but it was a long week and an even longer weekend. So many projects and opportunities I can’t wait to share with you all, but also a lot of burn out and exhaustion. So when Sunday rolled around I barley left bed. I slept, and re-charged, and today I feel glorious. Sometimes you just need to say when…if only for a day.
The legal mumbo jumbo...this giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents and will run through Sunday the 29th with our winner announced Monday the 30th. We’ll be running this all through Rafflecopter (below) which allows you to earn points for each item completed with a simple click of the button. The more points you earn the more likely you are to win (and remember you probably already have entry points if you’re a regular reader of the blog).

More than anything I love being cozy. Like bundled up with a blanket in front of a roaring fire while snow falls quietly outside and the red wine keeps flowing…that would be my definition of cozy. So probably more than anything, more than the shoes, and the bags, and the hats, when the weather turns crisp I gravitate towards my very favorite cooler weather piece…sweaters. And this year I’m so beyond thrilled to say that a closet staple of mine, the sweatshirt, has gotten a very fancy makeover which literally puts me over the moon. So here are my top picks…understand that I do sweaters that are pretty tame in comparison to the majority of wardrobe as I see them as a classic investment to be worn for years to come. Oh and though this one didn’t make the collage due to trying to find the right pic, it will end up in my closet. No question asked. TGIF Loves! truly, MKR.

For me this season it’s all about the hats…especially the baseball cap which makes me so happy since I wear baseball caps on a weekly basis. Though I’m loving that they’ve gotten a very fashion forward makeover for the season. Plus my favorite color (wine/oxblood/burgundy/bordeaux) keeps making an appearance. And I’ll pretty much buy anything with Uncle Karl on it. Happy Thursday Loves! truly, MKR
