It's a Celebration.

It's here; it's here!! No, not the amazingly adorable Chloe shoes above (from 2009 mind you) but rather the day I graduate from being an intern! Although I've only spent six months as an intern with Forever 21, there has been no shortage of events, promotions, drama-rama and fabulousness to be had. So with this long weekend, right before the big bonanza that is known as FNO, I am excited to kick back (or kick these feet up), celebrate the last six months and take some time to rethink the road ahead. And you know it will be filled with some pretty cute shoes, to boot. File as happy feet.

Dream Big.

Been in the process of making some fairly large life decisions recently and for some reason this quote just can't seem to leave my mind. Not surprised that it's by the ever-wise Ms. Oprah Winfrey. I literally cannot stop reading it over and over, making me feel a tad scared and a little hopeful that I'm choosing my path for the right reasons. File as living the dream.

Current Obsessions: Romance Intolerant.

Carrie may have asked that question in the final seasons of Sex and the City (yes, I still watch them on DVD; it's my thing, get over it!) and I even though may have asked that questions to myself a few times in the past; after this romantic wedding weekend for two of my best friends, I can't help but smile with it and not at it. Whether it's the pretty softness of the Valentino couture collection, the indescribable scent of the new Coco Noir fragrance (getting my hands on immediately if not sooner) matching twin doors, or a petite French pastry, I'm all about this new romance. File as last chance.

Insta-Files: My Best Friend's Wedding.

This weekend was one of the better weekends I've had this year, by far. I mean, my best friends do have exquisite taste and killer style (not to brag or anything but props to those girls), but this new Mrs. took it to a whole other level! Down to the very last detail, my best friend's wedding was every bit the glamorous garden fete I imagined a year ago (see my original inspiration post here) and more. From her perfect little Badgley Mischka shoes, to the groomsmen's dapper grey suits, her emerald drop earrings, the groom's dancing father, and the amazingly beautiful table settings...the night was pretty much the most perfect wedding I've ever laid eyes on. And I feel so blessed just to have been a part of the celebration! File as congrats, missy!

Laters, Baby.

I'm up, up and away yet again this extra-long weekend. Not to a land far, far away, but rather back to the Bay Area. To complete the year-long celebration better known as my best friend's wedding (!!!!!!) there will be, what I'm imagining, the most beautiful extravaganza I have ever laid eyes on. She may be my best friend, but she is also the girl who inspired me to create this blog and for that, I am forever grateful to her! Follow me on instagram @TheMargaretFile and on Twitter @MaggieMurrieta for updates on all the fabulousness. File as adios amigos.

Girls, Girls, Girls.

Best friend's bachelorette party last weekend; wedding this coming weekend. Don't hate me for not blogging these past few days as I have had limited access to both my brain and my computer. Let's just say that this bachelorette weekend was definitely one to remember. File as recovering.

Saturday Escape: Sicily.

Ortygia, in Syracuse | Salina, where the sirens tempted Odysseus 

Room 19 at Salina’s Capofaro Resort | Vineyards at Capofaro
Salina lighthouse | Cannoli via Antica Dolceria Bonajuto, Modica | A market

Although I'll be in the the Napa Valley in just about one week, there is another wine country that I've been dreaming of lately. The island of Sicily is one that I never got to visit when I was living in Italy, but it is one that is definitely on my list of places to visit ASAP. And after taking a look at those cannoli's and those truly legendary beaches, I can't imagine wanting to go anywhere else in the world. File as dreaming.

Home to Runway: Smoke Signals.

Pink eye never looked so good...not to mention that you can never go wrong with pink cushions.


Insane amount of blue crushes here, reminding me how chic cobalt can be.


Yellow eyeshadow and a matching yellow canvas? Sign me up.


There is a reason that a grey smokey eye (along with equally dark linens) are classics.

Insta-Files: Catch-25.

My 25th birthday is fast approaching (okay well maybe not that fast), yet even though I have no impending plans and no real idea of what I'd like to do, I have a feeling that my plans were just made with the purchase of this dress. Although it's been sold out on Asos for weeks, I snagged what must have been someone's return. Only thing's just a bit out of my price range (endlessly trying to save up for a place of my own) making this a real catch-25. File as decisions, decisions.
