Buy This, Not That: Looks for Spring!

It’s been a while since I have put together a “Buy This, Not That” post.  I am featuring Boden today because I was so inspired by their Spring catalog!  This company, founded in the UK, is my new favorite source for versatile clothes with great quality and good value.  Boden’s Spring look reminds me of Kate Spade meets J.Crew, for less….

The Ubiquitous Peacock

Are peacocks popping up everywhere you look?  From rugs to lamps to pillows and chairs and clothes, oh my!  Here are some fun peacock finds:

I just love this Round Peacock Rug from Urban Outfitters, and it’s only $58!  Wouldn’t it look great in a front hall or a library?

Isn’t this peacock wastebasket ($50) from Layla Grace adorable?

This peacock snowglobe ($29) from West Elm is fabulous — it would look perfect perched on a bookcase this winter!

Wouldn’t these peacock glasses from Z Gallerie ($27.80 for a set of 4) look lovely on your Thanksgiving table?

A pair of these elegant peacock glass ball lamp ($249) from Shades of Light would be a lovely addition to any living room.

I die for these amazing peacock menagerie boxes from (of course) Jonathan Adler ($68).  Aren’t they delightful?

This cool peacock tote ($164) from Layla Grace is described as an “un-diaper bag” for the one-mom-does-all lifestyle.  Yes please.

Ahhhh, I love these sketched peacock plates from Anthropologie.  Wouldn’t dessert be that much yummier served on one of these?

And this stately little fella from West Elm is no longer available, but I just had to share him with you, isn’t he fab?

I think that pretty peacocks provide such a whimsical extravagance!  What do you think?
