CUFF - Heavenly Treasures

MONDAY'S INSPIRATION:
Olivia Wilde
This past weekend my dad, Trousers, and I took Princess Sparkles with us to get our nails done.  I know, she's only 3-years old (I don't think I even got a manicure until I was in college!), but I thought it might be something fun for her to do with us and it would give Camouflage a little break.  We got there and she was really nervous.  I had her pick out her own nail polish and she of course chose... SPARKLES!!!  The woman was really sweet and gave her the full on treatment: nail filing, massage then nail polish.  Princess Sparkles was so excited!  She was swinging her legs and saying "I'm like a big girl!"

Today's Inspiration Monday from Two Birds is Olivia Wilde.  A quick funny thing about Olivia Wilde is I'd like to think I had a little something to do with her becoming famous (yeah right).  I was working for a TV producer way back when and he was doing a show that she was up for.  They were looking at a couple actresses and my boss turned to me and asked me which girl I thought was better for the part and I said Olivia was.  Anyway, she got the part and I'm sure I was the reason why.  You're welcome, Olivia!

Anyway, this outfit was very simple but fun.  I got to wear my thrifted Thakoon for Target skirt that I got 50% off at Goodwill!  I love it's print because it always adds that extra "sparkle" to everything I wear!

You look incredible! I love that skirt and those sandals are fabulous.

I took my daughter to get a pedicure one time. Perhaps not the brightest of ideas because she just wanted to splash in the footbath. However, they did make her nails adorable with a flower on each big toe!

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Princess Sparkles is too cute! I always love your stories about your girls.

And yes, you can take credit for Olivia Wilde :)

Great interpretation of Olivia's look - love your skirt. Since you mentioned the GW, think I'll be heading that way. My addiction is calling.

You look wonderful and that skirt was a great find. I never find any Target Designer lines at Goodwill. Super Jealous.

Yay, Olivia does a great job on "House".

That's such an awesome story...I'd totally take credit for Olivia after that :). And I love your inspired outfit, too...the skirt is perfect!

le sorelle said...

Wow that skirt is amazing! I can't believe the great deal you got on it, too - great find - I'd say your skirt is even prettier than Olivia's! The manicure experience sounded like a lot of fun - sparkles was a perfect choice ;)

What a cool story and I think she totally owes you! You should email/twitter her! :)
So cute getting mani with your little one. I can't wait do that stuff with my little girl. I was just researching dance classes for the summer cause I told her 'mommy just needs one month of dance and some photos of her in a tutu' then I will go to all her hockey/baseball/soccer games I promise (cause my little is bound to be an athlete that we can already see). Anyway love having a girl for doing girly stuff.

I can't wait to take my Little Miss for mani/pedis! That must have been so much fun. I bet she was adorable and everyone in the salon was probably jealous of the cute picture y'all made!
