I have this wild plan to one day paint my bathroom walls black. I know, it sounds crazy, but I keep stumbling upon pictures of powder rooms with stunning black walls. Hopefully my favorite paint, Behr Premium Plus Ultra, has the perfect shade for my loo.

It's fierce friday. No reason in particular, except for these fabulous flats. The sweet, but edgy look of the beaded bow is adorable. I want, I want, I want.

A few months back I stumbled upon what has now become one of our favorite blogs, The Pioneer Woman. Ree Drummond, our newest icon, explains "I'm a desperate housewife. I live in the country. I channel Lucille Ball, Vivien Leigh, and Ethel Merman" and we love her. Her blog is a hodge podge of recipes, photography, and helpful household tips.
Every time a new recipe is posted by PW, both Hillary and I get giddy with excitement. Not only does every recipe look delicious, Ree includes step by step pictures so you can follow along with ease. It also helps that Ree is hilarious and her posts are highly entertaining.
Simply put, we aspire to one day be like her. Here are some of our favorite posts:
These Bensimon Elastique Tennis Flats were in previous post, but they are too cute to not post again. These will be great for travel, a casual Friday at the office, weekend picnic, or an afternoon at the Nelson, etc. Now, what color to choose?

I love Madewell, the hipster sister in the J.Crew family. The last time I was in NYC I popped into the store and it was packed with great finds. I love their budget-friendly price tags and they are currently having a fantastic sale! I'm tempted to pick up a few items. I also think it's becoming apparent that I have a thing for poppy/coral/pink/red.

I've been searching for a vintage beverage stand with no luck (those can be so pricey!) so I thought I would start with purchasing some vintage glassware and barware instead. Baby steps, right?
And, after posting about these adorable gold rimmed glasses from High Street Market a few weeks ago, I'm finding fantastic vintage drinking glasses everywhere! I must purchase some soon! I'm thinking a big pitcher of sangria to accompany them? Cheers and Happy Friday!
Despite the snow, I'm gearing up for Party Arty this weekend, an event in Kansas City benefiting The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. How fun would these Valentino shoes be for the party? Swoon!

Darn you Nordstrom, DvF, Shopbop, et. al. It's literally 17 degrees in Kansas City and I'm online window shopping for spring clothes. Maybe these cute finds will help make this terrible weather a little bit more bearable? I'm loving all of the navy pieces for spring 2011.
I'm going on a trip (to beautiful Napa, California) and I'm taking my...
Nordstrom tissue weight cashmere scarf (Hillary's "Can't Live Without"!)
Ray-Ban "Bubble Wrap" shades
Virginia Johnson zigzag tote
Vera Wang Lavendar ballet slippers

Happy friday friends!
With all the snow on the ground and boot-wearin' weather, I'm day dreaming of a perfect spring day when I can wear these adorable classic ballet flats in a perfect paisley pattern.
Won't these put a spring in your step??

Hills and I both have a thing for paper. Invitations, place cards, menus, business cards, greeting cards, table numbers, you name it, we love it. That being said, I just received my weekly email from minted and had to share some of our new favorite social stationary.
