Odds~n~Ends

VOTE or DIE

Remember that stupid slogan from the last Presidential election? Paris H*lton was sporting tee shirts that said, "Vote or Die" and she did NOT vote. Nice! Today is election day and this is an important election. Don't forget to vote! Last Friday my driver, Ray, a big (and very nice) Iranian guy picked me up from the airport. Ray told me he was going to vote after he dropped me off. I told Ray I had to vote too. So together, a Christian, Texan girl and an Iranian Driver stood in line to practice our civic duties and BOTH vote Republican! God Bless the U.S.A!



REVA FLATS


I've been dreaming of a pair of Pink Tory Burch flats for the longest time but I could never justify spending the money. Last month I stopped at the Tory Burch outlet in San Marcos, TX and used some birthday money to purchase the Pink Revas.

I want to share something very important that I've learned about Revas. If you're planning to purchase a pair of Reva flats, you MUST purchase a half size larger than your normal size. I usually wear a 6.5, so I purchased the size 7. A couple years ago I splurged and purchased a pair of Black Reva flats in my size, 6.5. The 6.5 has never been comfortable and the back of the shoe constantly slips off my foot! Since that purchase, I've learned you're supposed to go a half size up. If you're planning to splurge on Reva flats, I hope this helps you out. The shoes are really cute but let's be honest, they're not cheap. It was a little sickening when splurged on the Black Revas and they didn't fit properly.



GIVEAWAY WINNER!


I couldn't believe it when Pink Peonies and Pearls contacted me to let me know I won her giveaway! Mrs. Pink Peonies and Pearls has an Etsy Store and sells the most adorable hand painted bracelets. These bracelets would be great gifts for all the stylish girls in your life and they arrive wrapped and ready to give! Thank you, Pink Peonies and Pearls.






NEW BEDDING


I purchased new bedding in June but it sat in the bag until last weekend. Isn't it funny how new bedding and re-arranging the furniture can give you a new outlook on life? Doesn't take much!

You have to love this country!

Your pink Revas are adorable and I agree that you need go a half size up with these. I have them in black. These shoes are so classic and stylish.

I really like that pretty bracelet that you won. The design is pretty!

Your new bedding is beautiful and so romantic. I love the ruffles.
