I wanted to share a blog post I did over at The Southern C last week!

Follow The Southern C for all things about Southern-inspired living!

Fall is in the air – well…almost, if you’re living here in the South! The temperature might still be warm, but we are forcing fall with pumpkin spice lattes, autumn scented candles and bootie-inspired attire. You might be thinking of ways to decorate your home and set your table for fall entertaining and family get-togethers. As if you can’t tell, I am a fan of the unexpected – I love doing a twist on the predictable holiday decor. My orange dining room is the perfect spot to set a fall table with the existing orange accents. My plan of attack? Gold and metallic accents – even the pumpkins! I scooped up a handful of pumpkins a few years back and sprayed them gold and silver. I use them on the front porch, mantle and on my table. While searching for holiday decor – go with the unexpected. Mix and match patterns in a color story rather than choosing the obvious. Instead of turkey-themed placemats, stick with a palette of oranges, golds and cremes. Then you can use them year-round for various occasions. Choose one area to toss in the theme – in this case, the pumpkins are the perfect fit! Once Christmas rolls around, I’ll change out pumpkins for aqua ornaments and pops of red.

This also allows me the opportunity to share my Entertaining Wardrobe with you! The wardrobe includes everything you need for impromptu dinner parties, family dinners or birthday soirees! Just like the rest of the Shoppe products, you can design your own! Choose your paper color, monogram style and ink color to create a custom look for your home! Each set comes with Fill-In Invitations, blank Menu Cards, Napkin Rings, Drink Flags and Placecards. Stash these in your china cabinet and be prepared for a party of 2 or 12!  Click here to create your own!

Hope you enjoyed and are encouraged to have fun with your decor this holiday season!

You may know Warby Parker for their fabulous designer frames! Well, coming from an avid eyeglass connoisseur, I have to say their new collection for Fall is so chic! I’m especially loving the clear frames – I might need those for my next pair! Imagine those with my Mac Russian Red signature lip color – so divine! I wanted to share my top picks from the new collection and pair them with my favorite jewels from kate spade new york. Don’t you just love these combinations?

 Style Crush : New Fall Collection from Warby Parker

Jewels | Eyeglasses

I adore Warby Parker’s company – here are a few details on their quality and history.

Warby Parker eyeglasses are crafted on one of the finest production lines in the world, with custom acetate sourced from a family-owned company.

Acetate eyeglasses

Their frames are made from custom cellulose acetate produced for Warby Parker by a 150-year old Italian family-owned company. Unlike plastic, cellulose acetate can be produced in brilliant colors and patterns; it also retains its shape and sheen with age. They use some of the sturdiest hinges on the market to produce superior durability.

Titanium eyeglasses

Each pair features titanium sourced from Japan and temples made from their signature custom acetate, as well as non-rocking spring hinges sourced from France. A custom nose pad offers a soft, anti-slip fit that is virtually pressure-free. For a flawless finish, they’ve used an innovative Ion Plating technique that produces unparalleled durability, strength, and color richness.


All of their lenses are coated twice with one of the best anti-reflective coatings on the market. In addition, they receive an anti-scratch coating to help maintain superior vision through everyday use. They also offer digital free-form progressives lenses in either optical and sun wear frames.

Warby Parker eyeglasses start at $95, with free shipping and free returns. For every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

And there you have it! Check out all of the new shapes and colors – take the plunge and go bold. I love making a statement!
