Shop and Press On for a Cure

I can't imagine a better way to spend money right now than shopping the Stella & Dot CURE Charity Trunk Show for Press On.  Stella & Dot is graciously donating 50% of the proceeds to Press On, an organization started by dear friends, Tara and Turner Simkins after their middle child was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia.  

And with Christmas right around the corner, Stella & Dot has some super cute accessories that would be perfect stocking stuffers or sweet girlfriend gifts.  Or maybe just pick something up for yourself to wear to a fun holiday party.  

I love the Renegade Cluster Bracelet in gold.  It would look amazing with three of them stacked on one arm.  Worn with a simple shift dress, these bracelets could give you that added punch of punk that you need. And the bracelet is $59!  That's almost $30 to Press On right there...

I also like the Olivia Bib Necklace for $118.  Over a simple T or pop of color on a little black dress, this necklace can be worn lots and lots of ways.  And the color can go all year long - perfection.

It's too bad this Limited Edition Fox Ring is sold out.  But it sure is cool.  And there's many different cocktail rings to choose from instead.  I also like the idea of wearing a few of the stacked rings with something funky on another finger.  Pile it on!

Adore this Bryant Park Scarf for $59.  This leopard print goes with ANYTHING.  I would use it as a neutral and wear with T shirt and jeans, with a navy peacoat, knotted up with a red sweater.  Endless!!  Tres chic.

And Tara pointed out the delicately sweet Hope Bracelet in Rose Gold for $32.  After all, that is what CURE and Press On are all about - hope.  Not to mention it's what Christmas is all about too.  So, here's to Hope and a CURE!

Go shopping!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Dior: Dior Christmas Windows

Leave it to Dior to create a Christmas utopia in the windows of the formidable Printemps department store in Paris.

2 blocks of windows are filled with the delicate creations of Dior from the 1940s to Raf Simons' newest cruise collection and first Haute Couture F/W 2012 collection.  The twist is how beautifully they are shown: on tiny marionettes who live in the dream world of Dior.

In 1947 Haute Couture

These tiny creatures ice skate, eat cotton candy, ride in a hot air balloon, and dance at a ball.  Music box type music plays as you stroll along, entranced by the delightful scenes.  Their faces are the perfect Dior, Parisian lady with arched brows and red lips.  Precious Dior handbags hang from their arms like little treasures.

2012 Haute Couture
2013 Resort
2010 Haute Couture

Every now and then a window displays mannequins wearing pieces as well, reminding us that we too could be just like the little dolls.

Step inside the doors of Printemps and find more  Dior fantasy.  Beside the tallest Christmas tree is a spiral staircase with mannequins stepping in clothes from the collection.  Are they coming down from heaven?

What a great way to start the holiday season.  I wish everyone a Dior Christmas!
