i'm the queen of comfort

I spent the afternoon at Louie in downtown LA with Renee eating an amazing meal, popping champagne, and eating the most delicious desserts. They made gourmet pizzas right next to our table and I wish I could have snapped a photo of our meal but I ate it before I could think about taking one. After the meal, we of course had to get some desserts to go and I scored a box of prettily packaged macaroons and Renee got some pastries. We then took some quick outfit shots on our walk home to end a delightful day. And yes, those are my alien toes, or skis as people refer to my feet due to their size. If you don't know me, then you aren't aware that I'm a total Sasquatch and if you do you're probably laughing at me right now. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

Hi everyone,
Sorry we haven't been posting lately, we are currently working on giving La Placard a little face lift and revamping some stuff. We'll probably still be posting random tidbits but a little less than usual (we're sorry!). Thank you so much for continuing to read, we seriously appreciate it, and we can't wait to share the new La Placard with you!

Celebrity Outfit of the Week

Nailed it

Spring nail trend alert? One accent nail. Paint 8 of your pretty fingers one color and then pick another to stand out and paint a different color. Last week mine were pink with a blue accent nail and my nails ended up looking like cotton candy making me very hungry. Vanessa Hudgens painted hers metallic black and green for the Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides premiere.

Day at the zoo

I spent this past Saturday at the L.A. Zoo with a friend and the boyfriendo looking at ellies, raff raffs, and roos, and over just goofing around. I have been so stressed with work this past month I really needed a day just to relax. It started out cloudy but ended up being a really nice sunny afternoon. Hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend as well! =)

disney princess 4ever

Where do I even BEGIN? If you knew us, if you knew us at all, you would know about our OBSESSION with Disney Princesses. If you've been following us for a while you might have known from this post, but I feel ashamed of myself for not finding this gem earlier. Dooney and Bourke have collaborated with Disney to create, yes, DISNEY BAGS! I must get my hands on a Disney Princess item immediately.

Maybe I am too obsessed? Nah....

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

I'm sure you all know by now that I have a penchant for anything rainbow (especially hair). Well it should come as no surprise that my absolute favorite pair of shoes in existence are the "rainbow" platform shoes designed by Salvatore Ferragamo in 1936 for actress Judy Garland. Last year, the still, family run brand, remade the shoes the 50th anniversary of Ferrgamo's death. Of course, they were only sold at limited boutiques, and even if I got my hands on a pair of them I am fairly certain that I would not be able to afford even 1/10th of the cost.

The Ferragamo remake ala 2010

But good news, La Placard's current obsession, shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell has recently created a t-strap remake of the colorful platforms just in time for summer! The best part is they're under $200.

If you're like me and can only lust after the originals, then buy these dreamy shoes here.
