When you care enough to send the very best (via email)

I am a major paper junkie.  There's a special anticipation when you receive a card in the mail or when you send one to a friend.  To me, they are mini works of art.  I've discovered that there are lovely ways to send sentiments via email that are almost as wonderful as snail mail.

Paperless post
First Up:  Paperless Post.  They are are online stationer offering gorgeous choices for invitations, announcements and cards.  There's no cost to join and when you do, you receive 25 free "stamps."  That lets you send out 25 of your custom creations (you choose from their designs) and and your own text.  If you want to send out more, there are additional fees based on the number.  For example, to buy another 20 stamps, the cost is $4.00.  

You can also track your mailings and see who has opened them and rsvp'd.

Animated e-cards from Jacquie Lawson are delightful.  There are beautiful designs for any and every occasion including many geared towards children.  They also offer darling invitations.  You pay to join for an amount of time (for example, the fee for one year is $12) and you can send out unlimited greetings for that time.

Another site full of style offering seasonal greetings is kate spade.  Click on "Behind the Curtain," you'll see lots of fun things including free stylish e-cards.  

Have a fabulous weekend!

What a Stud

Studs are everywhere this spring (I'm pretending it's not winter).  Not the type you date.  The kind you can wear. Did the stud reference date me?  That particular use of the term "stud" is circa 1988.  

Happily, when it comes to fashion, there are studded pieces in every price range.

How cute is this Olivia Harris purse?  And so is this stylish satchel by The Sak.  What is lacks in studs, it makes up for in price.

A studded tee with your favorite jeans would create a fun "going out" look.  I like that these tops from Eight Sixty and Bailey 44 hit a little lower.  I see it as a preemptive strike, preventing your kids from yelling "Mom, your butt's is hanging out" when you bend over.

Jeans these days can be pricey.  But this studded pair from Blank Denim is easy on the pocketbook.

 This pair from 7 For All Mankind are a bit more expensive, but still a bargin.

Studded flats are fun and practical.  This pair is from Ruby & Bloom.  So affordable!

Ruby&BloomSideViewI love these flats from Frye.  I am not usually a Frye chick but these shoes could turn me.

This studded cuff by Tory Burch is such a statement piece.  And it's on sale.  Oh TB… you are my biggest joy and my greatest weakness.  That's a little dramatic but when it comes to style no one can top Tory.

That's my stud search for this weekend.  Hope you find a stud that suits you.
