Early X-Mas Shopping & Nepali by TDM Scarf Giveaway

It's only November but holiday season is creeping up on us quickly. So over the weekend we helped to stimulate the economy at the Artemide warehouse sale. I have been thinking about changing out some lighting pieces so this is an early holiday treat for the house. I think it is important to have an overall balance between fashion and lifestyle. Are you into home decor?
It is finally cooler in Socal so I am able to wear leather jacket. Orange and pink combo is one of my current favorites. It is the perfect pop for fall chilly days.
What I am Wearing:
-DKNY fuchsia tank
-Seven jeans
-Christian Lacroix suede jacket --- I love the orange snakeskin pipping and fuchsia lining.
-orange color Tod's ballet flats

We got these pieces: Mega floor lamp in cream
Bolo floor lamp
Jupe floor lamp and table lamp (all lighting images via Artemide.com)
Speaking of holiday shopping, I am going to help one lucky winner kickoff holiday shopping. Since orange is my favorite fall color because it goes practically with everything, one lucky winner will have a chance to win this lovely silk scarf (retail value $145). I love to support a company that helps to enable women in poverty to better their lives. I love to wear this scarf with a pink cashmere sweater. How will you wear it?

  5. I love the lamps! I still have ugly, cheap torch floor lamps in my apartment. I've wanted until I'm in a more permanent residence to buy nicer lamps. But a new lamp makes such a difference!

    The scarf is gorgeous, but the story behind the scarf is even better. I'd wear it with a neutral khaki trench for a pop of unexpected color.
