I’m suddenly obsessed with lavender. Maybe it’s because Adrienne and I are featuring pastels for June’s “How I Wear My” or maybe it’s because I passed by Bergdorf Goodman the other day when I was on the bus with my son and just the site of the store makes me think of lavender, their signature color. Maybe it’s the lilacs in bloom? The Japanese wisteria? Whatever it is, I’m crazy for lavender right now.

I am especially wild for this Burberry lace trench, it is just so beautiful, but at $2,495 that’s not happening so I pulled out the Essie nail polish in Lilacism I bought last year. It’s a lovely creamy lavender with no shimmer and looks especially pretty as a pedicure color. I just saw it at CVS the other day so it should still be available where you are too!

I also picked up on eBay a used copy of Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf Goodman for the very nice price of $10.07 and free shipping, whee! It was published in 2012 in conjunction with the documentary of the same name (which I should review, I saw it in theaters last year) and covers the history of the store. I do love a grand department store and I tell you, Bergdorf is the best of the best. I can’t imagine loving another store more.

As for lavender, I find it such a calming and luxurious shade and I love how it pairs so well with black, gray, white, and every shade of blue.
Are you a fan of lavender too?
