I arrived to Scottsdale, AZ tonight after a pretty uneventful drive.
I always like showing up to new hotels and checking out the style, decor, feel of it all. Tonight's arrival at this resort was no disappointment.
Was I hoping for something modern with clean lines, coloful accents and maybe a quirky undertone? Yes. Is that what I saw?
No. Oh goodness, no.
Let's just say this suite was completely overlooked by the resort's Renovation Committee. And: I love it.
This place is huge. Much too big for one person. Instead of human companionship I am entertained by wacky and wild patterns of pastels dominating about the fabrics in a nonsensical fashion. The bathroom and kitchen counters are a lovely pastel marble and the cherry on top? The ginormous jacuzzi tub. Hey, do all you readers of this blog want to come over and hot tub with me? BECAUSE YOU COULD ALL FIT IN IT. It is that big.
No, perhaps what takes the cake is this love seat I'm sitting on right now. OH the patterns. OH the colors. OH the large indentation in the middle of the cushions from so many years of... being sat on.
Dear Supersweet 80's suite: I love you.
Anyway, all this pastel was leaving me craving some style. Soon enough I found myself internet shopping for kids' clothing. I landed on two spots- which is where the giveaway comes in.
You can win $75 to J Crew's children's line, Crewcuts, OR you could get a lot more bang for your buck at rockeroos.com, a newly launched baby/toddler line out of Los Angeles. The owner, Paige, asked me to do a couple of shots of the line being worn by baby models. (not all of the images on the site are ours.)
All you need to do is write a comment here on the blog, or on facebook or mention us on twitter and tell us what you'd buy from one of these sites. Or, just tell me how your day is going.
As for me, I'm pretty obsessed with all of the Everday Dresses from Crewcuts; and I have to tell you that Paige sent my daughter Isabelle this shirt from the European boys collection at Rockeroos- and I dressed her in it for church today. OH MY. She looked so cute I almost died when I laid eyes on her. We're talking DEATH BY CUTE.
Please write your comment by Monday, Nov. 16th at 9 pm PST.
So let's recap:
1. enter the contest.
2. cross fingers.
3. win. (unless you don't. that's a bummer.)
4. check out these pix of mailboxes I took on the way out to AZ today. I've passed these mailboxes SO MANY TIMES on my various trips out to Arizona, and I've never been able to stop and click. Today I took the opportunity and I'm glad I did. I'm thinking, front hallway wall series? Yes.
5. Did you hear we are going to Australia? Neat! And Hawaii? Duuuuude.
