It’s Friday Fun Day here at Luxemi and that means we’re bringing you a few of our favorite things this week. We just got slammed with 8 inches of snow here in Chicago so you’ll probably find us curled up inside watching movies and drinking cocoa. What are YOUR plans this weekend?
These Bollywood-Inspired Christian Louboutin heels are pure eye candy. We love the bubble gum hue mixed with traditional embroidery and of course, the sky high heel. How lovely would these look peeping out from under a lehenga? And honestly, we wouldn’t be above showcasing them on our bookshelves because you know what? They’re art daaaaaarling.
We know the importance (and rarity!) of a handwritten note these days; we ARE southern ladies, after all. Of course, the sentiment expressed needs to be on suitable stationary but every now and again a short thoughtful message on quirky card stock is just as appropriate. We fell in love with these from local Chicago designer, Jessica Murnane of Suitor. Now if only we could improve our handwriting…
It’s only a couple of weeks into the new year but we’ve already caught ourselves starting to crack on our 2012 resolutions. Mindbloom, a new app designed to help you keep track of your goals and resolutions is a fun and creative way to hold yourself accountable. No, it won’t yell at you for not waking up for that 6 am spin class but your *tree* (aka you) might turn an ugly shade of brown. You wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?
According to Pantone, Tangerine Tango, is 2012’s color of the year. A pop of orange is exactly what we need to wear on a cold dreary day in Chicago. We’d pair this with a cozy beigey-brown sweater for instant winter chic.
We like to think we don’t take ourselves too seriously which is precisely why we LOVE this. Check out this hilarious video, Sh*t Indian Girls Say. Be sure to watch the entire thing and tell us your favorite line! Our fave? It’s a tie between “I used to be BEST FRIENDS with his sister” and “I eat SO MUCH Taco Bell”
