Friday’s Fab Favorites Link Up + Win Over $215 in Glam Prizes!

Happy Friday!!  I hope you have all had a wonderful week. I’m really excited for this weekend because it’s Chris’s birthday on Saturday! I absolutely adore birthdays, I relish the whole process of finding the perfect gift, a fabulous cake, thinking of fun things to do… so the next few days will be great!

For this week’s edition of Friday’s Fab Favorites, I’m joined by the darling Elizabeth from Book of Leisure and Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish. I’m sure you will love these ladies and their style.  If you’re interested in co-hosting, just email me for details. I can’t wait to see what you link up! Remember… you can share anything and everything – a previous posts, or a post about your favorite things. It could be anything!

Today I wanted to share with you the latest fashion collaboration that designer to the stars Catherine Malandrino has launched at Kohl’s. The pieces have been seen on taste makers including on Olivia Palermo at New York Fashion Week – and you know if Olivia’s wearing it, it has to be chic! Her gorgeous Laser-Cut Shift Dress is now available here (it’s currently on sale for a limited time for only $66!).


I think this Parisian inspired collection captures the European essence of timeless sophistication and the pieces aren’t the one-hit-wonders often found in designer collaborations. This is a big thing for me, I’m really drawn to classic items that will stand the test of time, whilst still looking unique and of the moment.

The other great part about this Catherine Malandrino range? You don’t need a celebrity paycheck to afford star style, the pieces are well under $100 – and at the moment they’re on sale even further for a limited time! Some of my favorites include this Eiffel Tower Dress, Faux Leather Skirt, Color Block Sweater and Ponte Swing Dress. Happy shopping!
