Head to Toe: Girls at Dune

June 2nd, 2008 No Comments

Our group of girls before we headed to Dune (Hamptons) for Heft’s birthday.

My Head to Toe:

  • H&M dress
  • Jonathan Kelsey shoes

Meghan:

  • Missoni Top
  • Sean John jeans
  • Jimmy Choo shoes
  • Soho Gem Vitrine necklace

Usually when we go out, Julia likes it when we all coordinate outfits. As Julia wasn’t with us, Megs and I decided to clash as much as possible! (Although, to Julia’s credit, the pictures do look better when the 3 of us match.)

My Head to Toe:Prive in Planet Hollywood

May 17th, 2008 No Comments

Last night we went to Prive in Planet Hollywood.  These clubs in Vegas are really all the same.  But I LOVE the cheesy remixes.

Head To Toe:

  • Chanel scarf (Didn’t like the tops I brought so I made one out of a scarf.  Remember, if you are innovative, you won’t get bored with your wardrobe.)
  • Zara shorts
  • Johnathan Kelsey shoes
  • Denim Toby CLICK bag

The Chanel scarf is from my Mom’s designer resale store in Houston, Encore.  She always has a great selection of Chanel and Hermes scarves for about $80 each. Because her stock is always changing, she can’t sell online, but feel free to call her if you are looking for something specific (purse, scarf, dress, suit) and don’t live in Houston.

Random Act of Kindness

February 26th, 2008 No Comments

I CAN’T STAND IT ANY LONGER!!!!

I have never experienced a random act of kindness like this before in my life!

A reader of mine contacted Julia after seeing how much pain I was in on my birthday suffering from bronchitis.  They asked her to go out and pick out a pair of shoes and a purse that I have been lusting over.  Of course these items have been written about on on my blog, so Julia chose the Jonathan Kelsey silver sandal heels and a YSL bag (and she chose exactly the right ones!)

They presented them to me last night at dinner, there is a video of the whole thing, that for some reason Julia has not sent me today, it’s priceless.  I was completely shocked, no idea it was coming, and WOW, not only amazing gifts, but a truly AMAZING gesture. My feelings about the whole thing cannot be fully described in words.

The card read:

“I have been an avid reader of your blog for some time as well as a chronic suffer of bronchitis.  You have brought so much happiness through your style suggestions that I thought it was time I did something for you.   I wish you the happiest of birthdays.”

“Someone a long time ago did a random act of kindness for me.  All I ask in return is you – sometime in the future – give someone in need a similar act of kindness.  I truly hope you have a special day.”

Dear Reader,

I am truly overwhelmed by your generosity and cannot say thank you enough, for both the beautiful gifts and the thoughtful gesture.  I promise that one day I will bestow another person with such a grand offering.  I feel in my everyday life I do things for people, but there will need to be a larger effort to reciprocate your gifts.  Thank you from the bottom of heart.

I can’t imagine living with this pain on a daily basis.  It is my hope that your good karma in some way can heal your lungs.

All My Best,

Mary

A big thank you to Julia and Meghan for assisting dear reader and knowing me so well, I love those kinds of friends :)

Jonathan Kelsey

JONATHAN KELSEY

After working for labels like Jimmy Choo and making a name for himself as “the British Louboutin,” Jonathan Kelsey is making quite a splash in shoe market with his second collection. On such an honor, Kelsey says “It’s flattering. And I think there’s a similar spirit and attitude to how we design.”

I should say so, I walked off the elevator to the new Saks shoe floor and was blown away by his classic and unique designs (even amidst all of the other treasures). See them online at his website www.JonathanKelsey.com or Saks.com. Pricey but truly stunning.
