Wear: God Hates Bags Tote

I carry a positively gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs bag every day, but sometimes I just need to carry a few things, or I want room to throw some extra stuff in my bag. That's where this tote comes in. It's the perfect size to carry all my crap, but I can also put my laptop in there, or some shopping that I've picked up on a walk. It also has a small pocket on the inside that keeps your keys, phone, lipgloss, etc from getting buried at the bottom of your bag. PLUS, how great is that slogan? This bag is from Revel & Riot, an amazing nonprofit that raises awareness for LGBTQ issues through all kinds of artistic mediums. A portion of the proceeds from this bag, and all items sold through Revel & Riot go to underfunded LGBTQ services and nonprofits. I highly suggest you check out their site.

Watch: Reign

I love, love, love Reign. It was by far my favorite new show last fall, and I'm so excited that it came back this week. Sure, it's not a great way to learn historical facts, but it's so fun. Not only is Reign full of drama and royal intrigue, but the costumes are to die for. Are they period appropriate? Hardly. Are they so, SO gorgeous to look at? Abso-freakin-lutely. Even if I didn't like the show, I'd watch just for the costumes. And Anne Shirley.

Want: Cardigans

I love a good cardigan. Sadly, a lot of my collection has been wearing out lately, and it's time for a bit of a cardigan overhaul. My ultimate wish is to get a Visa card with $5.000 on it, like on What Not To Wear, but I got to spend it all on cardigans and maxi dresses. It's the only way I could afford the $365 cashmere cardigan from Vince I used in the above photo. Ah, to be able to spend over $300 to look like a grandpa. Until that day, I'll be looking for slightly more affordable options to rebuild my cardigan drawer.
