Fruit Cart Dress

The price tag on this retro dress from ModCloth definitely made me raise my shades, but the greatest gifts are the things you’d never actually buy yourself, right? I’d love to accessorize this cutesy dress with bold red or yellow heels and an oversize clutch. (ModCloth, $83)

Rose Marigold camera bag

Jo Totes’ camera bags pull double duty, as camera tote and stylish handbag so you don’t have to juggle both. I’ve been eyeing the Rose Marigold, though I’ll admit to coveting the Georgia bag, too! Both pretty and practical, the bags feature adjustable interior pads to accommodate whatever gear you’re toting. Check out all their styles. (Jo Totes, $89)

Mercury glass pillars

I may or may not admit to fancying The Real Housewives of Anywhere. And I may or may not have a slight obsession with Beverly Hills’ Lisa Vanderpump’s incredible mirrored bedroom. Since I’d have to invest in a warehouse of Windex just to keep such frivolousness clean from the hands of my tykes, I’ll settle for some equally frivolous and precious pillars from Pottery Barn. (Antique mercury glass pillars, $20-$50)

Lace headband

I’ve pinned many of these headbands, but let’s be real, they’re never gonna get done, so someone please buy me one instead. Just imagine making these from your wedding dress to wear throughout the year or gift to your daughter. Swoon … oh wait, no time! (Stitch from the Heart, $27)

Oversize crocheted clutch

Another pick from, this oversize crocheted clutch is a fair trade product, sourced from a group of women artisans in India. Proceeds from these hand-crocheted lace items go toward projects like free eye tests and glasses for the artisans, as well as free school uniforms and blankets for retirees. (, $48)

Jaquita open-toe pump

There's something about the platform peep-toe plus a jeweled brooch and sumptuous jewel tone of the shoe … I’m literally drooling over these pretty pumps.
