and hopefully we’ll be meeting up again next week when i go back to orlando (it’s been wayyyy too long since i’ve been on a business trip)!

{5} black boots i’ve been on the hunt for the LONGEST time for a pair of black boots. a pair of boots to wear with tights, skinny jeans, and knee high socks. and at the most recent macy’s one day sale, i found my match. it’s black, it’s equestrian like, it’s comfy, it’s got a great button on the side, and it’s perfection. say hello to calantha by anne klein!

{6} headbands i’m trying to grow my bow business and i want to make headbands. i’ve been looking high and low for structured comfy fabric headbands but haven’t found the perfect one yet, won’t you help me out so i can make you a bow headband? 🙂

have a wonderful holiday (for those in the U.S.) week!!

    Hadn’t heard about the Michael’s challenge, that is neat though! Too bad I’m crazy busy making Christmas presents otherwise I’d be all over it!

  2. November 21, 2010 / 5:01 pm

    I love your bows. They are so so so cute. Ohmy.

  3. November 21, 2010 / 5:26 pm

    Love your “monday” post. I can’t wait to be one of the first to buy your fabulous headbands. I wish I could help you with wear to buy the starters 🙁

    I will go on the headband hunt because I am SO excited for your bow headbands! Anything with bows in fact

    Congrats on finding your black boots! I know what you mean. It took me a couple years to find mine! Haha.

    Maybe try headbands that aren’t the stretchy elastic kind, too? Those kind never stay on my apparently-oddly-shaped head, & there are too few cute structured headbands out there!

  9. November 21, 2010 / 6:47 pm

    Oh, wait. Rereading, I think maybe those are the kind you meant?

  10. November 21, 2010 / 7:09 pm

    so fun! i love your bows-they are darling:)

    Expanding to headbands sounds like an excellent idea since your bows are so cute, it would be great to have more ways to wear them. Good luck with that. 🙂
