Today I Want: Tracy Reese Pegged Skirt

I fell in love with this Tracy Reese Pegged Skirt today. I found it at Neiman Marcus Last Call and couldn't afford it even with my 40% off coupon.

I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a high-waisted skirt. It just doesn't seem that way on the model. This skirt fit me perfectly and would be super cute with tights and black booties for fall.

Today I Want: Fall Remembrance Coat from Free People

Okay, so it's Texas and the temperature is still in the 90s outside. I know this.

I still want this tiered wool coat from Free People. Free People is usually too bohemian/hippie for me. I'm usually an Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters/J. Crew kind of girl, but I loving this pick.

Maybe in 2 months, I'd be able to wear it? 3 months?

Fall Remembrance Coat, Free People, $198

Today I Want: KitchenAid 12-Cup Food Processor - Empire Red

So, I got the the KitchenAid stand mixer last month, and I finally used it for the first time today. OMG it changed my life in 3 minutes.

Now, I want the matching food processor. Am I being greedy? $200 appliances are expensive (I do come from an appliance background).

There was an article on food processors as an important time-saving appliance in April's Real Simple. I've been thinking about food processors all month--ever since I opened the magazine.

Food processor owners, what are your thoughts? Any recommendations?

People tell me I'm the hardest person to shop for. Here are a few hints from Catbird NYC. My friend Sharon discovered this Brooklyn shop, and I am in love with jewels.

I would love the "k", "p" and the heart. I think those would stack nicely. If a "c", "c" get put into the mix, I'd be cool with that. Alphabet Rings, catbird NYC, $88 each

I also like this tiny diamond ring by Blanca Monroz Gomez.
