Here's a reason to celebrate: fashion mogul Oscar de la Renta, is now translating his iconic prints onto paper for our parties! Teaming up with Paperless Post, his new line of stationery showcases everything we've come to love about the designer's signature prints and extraordinary embroideries. His delicate Chantilly laces are now elegant wedding invitations, while bold patterns from his 2013 ready-to-wear line will inspire your next Summer soiree. It's almost impossible to settle on a favorite, but here are a few of the best — available on paper or digitally — that caught our eye.
On Wednesday, I asked you guys to come fab finding with me for a good outfit to wear while entertaining at home. Since you want to wear something comfortable and just a little bit glitzy for the occasion, I chose this Ya-Ya Black Cashmere Rectangle Sweater Wrap, available for $222 here and let you guys go Fab Finding to complete the outfit.
This time, there were a ton of great responses from TeamSugar's Fab Finders; most of you thought very hard about the ideal shoes, and cropped pants were also very popular, since they are sassy but sensible at the same time. (To learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one, click here.) We also had some great outfits from some newcomers to Come Fab Finding With Me, including ShoeS, who chose white cropped pants and these Marc Jacobs Distressed Mary Janes, available for $635 here. After all, just because you are home doesn't mean you can't wear heels.

The most stressful thing about hosting a cocktail party? For me, it's probably picking out my clothes. Even if I master the drink-mixing and appetizer placement, I think looking fabulous is a crucial hostessing skill.
However, don't think you can throw on your typical glitzy cocktail-party ensemble to entertain at home. Rather, a hostess should wear something that strikes a balance between sparkly and stay-at-home, like this Ya-Ya Black Cashmere Rectangle Sweater Wrap, available for $222 here. So let's all go Fab Finding to complete the outfit. In this case, comfort is key! Be sure to come back and tell us what you found. To learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one, click here.
