I've Got Mail!

Earlier this week, I had the absolute!! 

Monday afternoon, I underwent a very painful dental procedure.  Okay, it was laser teeth whitening - but you don't understand how sensitive my teeth are!  I got home at 5:00 and my mouth was in so much pain I couldn't speak, couldn't eat, couldn't BREATHE through my mouth. 

Due to the mouth breathing inability and my constant slapping my hand over my mouth and groaning in pain every few seconds, I knew I would not make it to my Monday night kickboxing class, and had resigned myself to the task of re-watching Season 6 of SATC (I've been re-watching all seasons the past few weeks). 

As I pulled up to the mailbox - yes, I'm one of THOSE people who pulls up to the mailbox in her car on the WRONG side of the road instead of walking - I pulled out the most incredible mail delivery ever.

The loot:
1. Elle Decor Magazine
2. At Home in Arkansas Magazine
3. Toast High Summer Catalog
4. Toast House and Home Catalog
5. Restoration Hardware Outdoor Catalog
6. Rachel Roy delivery - dress!!
7. a couple credit card solicitations I could've done without

I mean, for an evening stuck at home, unable to open your mouth - what could be better?!

I didn't completely abandon the SATC Season 6 quest, which is why I only made it to the Toast Catalogs, but if you're unfamiliar with the company, let me introduce you. 

Toast is a company in the UK, similar to Anthropologie, and their catalogs have beautiful images.  Here are a few of my favorite pages!:

I love this dress - it's tied at the neck with some sort of disc-shaped shells or something?  Very unique...

This necklace is so cool to me - reminds me of Rachel Zoe

I don't usually like the harem pants, but I love, love, love these!  By the way, I cheated and bought the SATC2 book with all the "looks" and the girls are wearing harem pants the majority of the time in the movie. 

My only fear - these are washed silk and not too sure about silk pants - I've done it once before and you definitely don't want to sweat - that's all I'm sayin'  ;o)

I'm not dying for this dress but love the light in the picture!

This top is my favorite item in the entire catalog.

You can see how it drapes in the close-up.  Sooooo pretty!!

This outfit makes me want to flashback to the 90s and tie a sash around my waist!

Again - another pair of harem pants - and again - I love them!

This dress is "hand tie-died" with a paintbrush.  Seriously.  I would love to see it in person because I have a feeling the picture doesn't do it justice!

The "House/Home" catalog is just as interesting:

I really like this cowbell for some reason...

Have you ever seen wooden spoons displayed so alluringly?

These little metal trash cans are so stinking (pun intended) cute to me! 
They would be the perfect size to add a spigot at the bottom and use for a compost bin!

Luuuuuurve these glasses!

These rugs are so vibrant and I think one would be purrfect in my guest bathroom!  Perhaps orange - but they would be really cool layered too.

Great floppy hat!

I have no idea what the merchandise is in this photo but it's so cute!

Sometimes I don't like when catalogs are too "artistic" with the photos because I have no idea what is for sale in the picture, but they solve the problem with a page at the end of each section displaying the goods and the price.

Check out the website here to shop, order a free catalog or download a pdf version!!

Happy Shopping!
