Exciting New Developments!

Hey, everyone!
I am just TOO excited, so I decided to write a quick post.

Here's what I'm excited about:
1. new Wolford knee-high tights (they work over-the-knee, too, which is just too cool) in a black Honeycomb
2. new tiny metallic pink kooba purse with a long, long chain that makes me want to go out and party (long chain purse = party?)
3. new dresses - I have 3 new dresses that I've never even worn
4. the first edition copy of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (the novel) that I bought on Tuesday and was printed in 1925
5. the dream that I had last night. Can't remember what happened but there was a waterfall, a pool, a hotel, and a really really high terrace in some jungle. I'm pretty sure a group of people and I were spying on somebody, too.
6. Kim Yuna's outfits (watch the Olympics, anyone?)! That girl is the bomb, and her one-shouldered LBD for her short program went perfectly with how awesome she is.

Vintage Treasures Part II is coming up soon, so stay tuned for that! And thank you to all my new readers - and my old ones! I love and cherish you ALL.

Vintage Treasures: Part I

Hello, darlings!

Yes, it is finally time. I promised you a vintage post a long, long ago. But this is going to be a two-part series because I went out and bought more.

I picked up a super-fun sequined vest (pictured below) in a darling cream color. It's such an easy way to spruce up a simple outfit.
Worn with a Juicy Couture top and True Religion jeans, with a belt from Intermix

And I had to have this colorful '70s suede patchwork mini! I love how bohemian-chic it is, and so versatile, too. Here I styled it as "classic sophistication with a touch of youthful spontaneity" [insert haughty look here].

Worn with a Juicy Couture velvet blazer, Cosabella lace-edged camisole, maroon tights, and Cole Haan wedge boots

I'll be back soon with more of my finds (we're talking '90s velvet dresses and statement jewelry)! Thank you all for being so wonderful, by the way!

Grey Matter in the Kitchen?

Hello, darling readers. It's been a while since I've posted, I know. But there's more to come soon, soon, soon! And I've picked up more vintage pieces that I'm DYING to tell you about, so expect a vintage post soon. Meanwhile, I've picked up a bunch of new things and I've become a tights-aholic.

So about the tights. Where I am right now, the weather's been about 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect for tights with dresses and skirts, in my opinion. I've been wearing tights more than jeans lately and I'm loving it! I'm wearing tights as I'm posting this...

Anyway, I've picked up a few pairs from Juicy Couture, and they're shimmery! (I know, right?)

Worn with a new Juicy dress

Amazing new ring from Intermix and vintage hammered silver bracelet



Yes, that's the kitchen in the background. Thought I'd do something new... and it was dark out.
