I’m totally digging these giant G-Shock watches. The brigher the better. I’ve got the lipstick red on my wrist right now. Love it for tennis, running, cycling or just for fun with jeans and a t’shirt. LOVE my moster big red watch! I might have to jump on that lime green or sunshiney yellow for summer.
I am getting so excited for Holiday Shopping! I love this time of year. This Game Cube by Geoffrey Parker would make the perfect gift for the favorite “old school” gamer in your life!
This Game Cube is actually an award winning design that incorporates a stunning 25 games into one cube!
Hand inlaid throughout, the 6 gaming boards on the outside can be made in any of their Dauphin calf leathers and is trimmed in Stainless Steel for a “contemporary” feel.
The Backgammon slides open to reveal a further 19 games inside, housed in a series of felt drawstring bags, labelled with its contents. There is truly something for everyone. Who wouldn’t LOVE receiving this gift this Holiday season!
Stowed within cube:
Wooden Puzzles (3)
Tic Tac Toe (Noughts & Crosses)
Snakes & Ladders
Nine Men’s Morris
Children’s card games (2)
You never can have enough pillows – just ask my husband who has to search through the rows on our bed each night to find his favorites. I love how they help to bring all the odds and ends together in a room and also offer the opportunity to infuse your distinct personality. Throw pillows have a special way of transforming an otherwise fantastic room into perfection. At Throw & Co. there is definitely a pillow for everyone! The colors are really vivid and the patterns have a classic modern infusion. Happy Shopping!
Are you looking for the perfect hostess gift? Look no further, these candles and perfumes from Le Labo are beautiful and can be personalized for any occasion. Love the minimalistic packaging and and simple perfume names. There is even a Chicago scent. The Chicago exclusive is called Baie Rose 26 which is French for pink pepper.
Let us know your favorite Le Labo scent!
Fall Folliage. Holiday Card. Family Reunion. New Baby. Happy Home. Beloved Pet. These are only some of the special occasions where families and friends gather together for photographs. The reasons are endless. The photography needs to be memorable.
Slippers are definitely the shoe craze and how cute are these from Hadleigh’s – a Bespoke clothing boutique started by husband and wife team Ed and Gable Shaikn that, prior to moving to Dallas’ Highland Park Village shopping center, was completely sold and run through the pool cabana at the couple’s home. We are loving the gray colors and think that a pair of these timeless, customizable slippers are perfect for Fall. Best part, they make these beautiful shoes for Men and Children. (For those of you not in the Dallas area, the slippers are now sold online at department stores like, Neimans and Bergdorfs).
Even though the Summer Concerts are over, Fall brings plenty of outdoor activities. From Football games to Outdoor Festivals, these Wine Canteen‘s by Oenophilia will be your favorite Fall accessory. Each vacuum flask holds one bottle of white or red wine and includes an easy to carry handle. Salute!
These barcart trays from Parker & Rain are the perfect way to add a little oomph to a room. With patterns like Canary Yellow Bamboo, Union Jack and Serveware there is something for everyone and every taste. No doubt these trays will dress up a barcart, but why stop there? They would also be a perfect addition to your dresser or bathroom to display your jewelry or as a pop of color to a book shelf – really, so many possibilities.
We are so excited that one of our favorite jewelry designers is coming to Lake Forest! Lisa Cotten has been creating the most beautiful bobbles since 2005. Her collection has been featured at Material Possessions in Chicago and Maze Home in Winnetka and is debuting at The Lake Forest Shop this Fall. We can’t wait for her trunk show on September 25, 26 – We promise, it is a show that you will not want to miss. Mark it down in your books, girls!
Lisa’s studio is in Winnetka so of course we love supporting a local gal. Amazingly, this former model and mother of four has found the time to create an stunning collection designed with the finest precious stones sourced from Thailand, India, Brazil and beyond. You are sure to fall in love with the line. I especially adore the Bubble Rings and Europa Hoop earrings and Rings. Oh, and I’d love the blue Indra Collection Earrings too. Honestly, anything in her line is fabulous for day and night – everyday and special occasion. Which makes it totally a smart purchase!
See you at Lisa Cotten’s Show at The Lake Forest Shop on September 25 and 26th!
