The Budget Babe recently mentioned this jewelry designer on her blog:  Charles Emerson Designs!  I clicked on over and was totally impressed!  The pieces have a fabulous price tage for great, stylish, standout pieces.  Here are some of my favorites:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Prices of these items range from $12 - $38
1 - Umm Christmas party anyone?
8 - Had to include this one.."The Sarah"

Again - so sad M has me on a spending moratorium or I would've already gotten an order confirmation!  It'll be worth it when our house is decorated gorgeously, right?!

So it's here...the new year!  I'm not exactly all for new year resolutions but for the sake of a blog post, there are a few things I'd like to accomplish in the next 12 months.

- Find our dream house {within our budget, of course} and then become a DIY, tool-wielding champ!

- Lose a few pounds and maintain it...doesn't everyone pretty much aways want this?

- Blog more...

- Do more things with friends

- Cook and bake more often {this may not help out with the losing a few lbs...}

What are you going to try to do? -Sarah

I totally forgot to take a picture of my outfit last night...bummer!  I totally loved my outfit too!  Here's the general idea:

I wore a J.Crew sequin tee, Alexa Chung for Madewell leather skirt, Stella and Dot jewelry {earrings, bracelet}, black tights and Tory Burch flats.

It was chilly, so I layered with a leopard scarf and black velvet coat!

My actual scarf {not pictured} and coat no longer available but see similar:  scarf, coat.

What did you wear?  Please share!
Happy 2013 - Sarah
