Home Update – Dena Home Peacock Bath Collection on Sale

I’m more of a clothes gal than a home decor gal, so I must admit that I haven’t paid a lot of attention to the home goods that are part of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.

So it took me a little while to discover that Dena Home’s collection of peacock bath items – many of which have been on my wish list for at least a year – are part of the sale!

Update: Please scroll down to the end of this post for a round up of ALL of the peacock-inspired women’s clothing and accessories included in this year’s Anniversary Sale!

I don’t need a new shower curtain right now, but if I did this would certainly be The One. The Dena Home Peacock Shower Curtain is $25.90 on sale (regularly $34.99) – and don’t miss the matching shower curtain hooks.

Instead, I have my eye on the peacock soap dish and other pretty ceramic bath accessories shown here ($11.90 – $31.90 on sale).

The most practical choice for me right now would be the peacock bath towels, which come in the same peacock motif as the ceramics and in this geometric feather motif ($5.90-$13.90 on sale).

Class It Up – How to Wear Pineapples Without Being a Carmen Miranda Caricature – Commandress

Today’s post shares a curated selection of fashionable items sporting – of all things – pineapples. It is not breaking news that pineapples are trending. This summer, pineapples adorn tops, sandals, earrings, and more.

In 2010, comedian Kristen Wiig immortalized Carmen Miranda by posing in turban bedecked with fruit. Unless you are very confident, flamboyant or invited to a costume party this is not how Commandress suggests wearing pineapples.Pineapple Hat Kristen Wiig as Carmen MirandaUsually, pineapples are an architectural and interior design motif. Since the old world collided with the new pineapples have symbolized hospitality and welcome.

Isn’t it interesting that in our country’s current climate such a symbol would become a popular fashion motif? Well, since this is a fashion and style blog, I’ll keep things light. Let’s just say I am enthralled with sartorial pineapples. So far, I’ve kept my pineapple purchases to two: Lilly for Target thong sandals and a long sleeve top from Talbots.
