These backdrops from Castle Gibson seen on Beefy's blog would be SO AMAZING for a photo shoot...but could you actually live with the bohemian chic, torn and tattered look? I'd like to say I could...but I'd most likely have my paint swatches out after a week or two.
okay,okay...stick a big,fat "L" on my forehead for watching DWTS (and now I'm an uber-loser because I abbreviated Dancing With The Stars like we're close and personal friends) BUT-- check out the PONYTAIL on Nicole Scherzinger (of PussyCat Dolls fame)...I die. And would I push people to the floor, run over them with high heels if she were giving away that body of hers...yes I would.
I teach a third grade small reading group which just happens to be five boys. At first I thought they would be a handful, but I'm actually enjoying our time together. There's no snarkiness like among the third grade girls and they all get along quite well. The SWEETEST thing is when we are grading papers and they sing their answers . They LOVE to do it and my heart smiles when they do--SO sweet.
My daughter told me about the uber sweetness and joy a CaraCara orange will bring to your tastebuds and she was right! What's the big diff you may ask...well, I've done the research for you: Cara Cara Oranges are very low in acid, with a naturally sweet flavor. Some people feel that they are superior to other navel orange varieties in flavor, and they are often in high demand in produce markets when they are in season. Go. Eat. Enjoy
are these just the coolest? okay, okay...not to the grocery store or schlepping the kids to school ...but if you're out and about and want that great accessory and showstopper. I know I had the Madonna album and I've been told more than once the resemblance to Carly and who can forget their crush on Rick Springfield? From Reinvented Vinyl's etsy profile: "A few years ago, I begin the arduous process of constructing a purse from a castoff record album. Many trials, tribulations, bad designs and hours in consultation with friends and family later -- ReInvented Vinyl was born. Giving birth to a child was easier. Like most Wonder Women, I construct purses part time, squeezing out one purse at a time in my studio. There are never enough hours in the day. "They are hard to make!" said my friend Kim O'Neill. "You are the Master of the Obvious," I replied. But I forge on, in hopes that like-minded Wonder Women will see, appreciate, and BUY my record album purses on Etsy." Which one would you get?
We met in Santa Cruz to throw a baby shower but who knew we would have so much fun on the boardwalk? It was the perfect place for a Dressing On The Side photo shoot (also perfect in that the rides were not open as of yet; no swarms of cotton candy fist filled sweaty people; and no missing teeth carnies were around...not saying that all carnivals have missing teeth carnies...but I'm just sayin).
We actually do have a bunny or two in our yard so if we're going by "rabbit time" I'm assuming that spring might be close at hand. We're off for California so take care of yourselves while I'm gone...talk soon!
It's over the top. It's too much. It's all those things... and it's mine. I'm a sucker for vintage pieces and when you throw them all together on a necklace...I die. It's not a wear it all day piece--it's heavy--but it's such a conversation starter, I couldn't resist. From Raquel Castillo.
Oprah's big ebay sale is ON but ONLY for another 24 hours or so. All proceeds go to Oprah's Academy for Girls in South Africa. Looks like the highest price item thus far is an alligator clutch for $4000 but if you're jonesing for a piece of O there's a Coach hot pink pleated skirt for only $215 (just what every size 12 woman wants to wear....what was she thinking??!)
I love to shop online and when I do I click some items into my cart and "hold" them until I have a day or two to think it over. I'm trying to tame the impulse purchase machine inside of me. Most of the time I forget about the item--so, in some strange way, I feel as if I'm saving money (ask our accountant about how well I "save" money...) Imagine my surprise when I clicked to Anthropologie (after receiving their newest catalog...gorgeous!) and seeing that I had items in my shopping cart--AND--they were still available--AND--on sale! The "Leading Lady" trench coat by Eley Kishimoto (no clue...but sounds like he's sort of important in the fashion industry) was originally $495 (!!!) but was in my cart for $119. The weird thing is--you can't find it on the Anthro website. I clicked on the coat, I searched, I googled--it's no longer available--but, here it was sitting in my forgotten shopping cart. We'll see how it looks--love that the double breast buttons are wider on top and narrower on the bottom and another blogger mentioned it fit her better than her Burberry. It will be great with all the "basic black" I have in my closet; I just hope it doesn't make me dizzy when I wear it.
