A place to entertain.


It's the time of year where every evening I wish I had a fabulous home with a fabulous yard (read gardens and a pool) for fabulous entertaining. Maybe one day... For now I just have to settle for having my fabulous friends entertain me!

A weekend picnic.


I'll be at work all weekend, but if I wasn't I'd be finding a quiet place for a nice picnic at the National Arboretum.

Thrifty Thursday!! Five pieces for $75.19!!!


I totally love Shaun White's boys shirts from Target. Just order up a size from what you would normally wear in a juniors/misses shirt; they're fun, comfy and cheap! Perfect for a day of record shopping.

The Devil hath power To assume a pleasing shape


 


After being sick for a good portion of my mini vacation, I have an urge to dress to the nines in some sexy sultry devilish red.

Morgan my muse...


Once upon a time I was a goth living in Baltimore and had a gorgeous doll of a friend named Morgan

A quick facebook chat with her today has me reminiscing our days of layered slips. 
First the black, then the red, top it of with the frilly white, and always, always, red red lipstick.

Botanical Kittens


I went out shopping with Kristen today and we both are head over heels for this darling dress at Anthropologie. The cute garden cat print looks just like her girls Gracie and Niko!

Owls are everywhere!!


1970's owls are back! Well they've been back for a while,  but now they are everywhere! You can find owls on everything from dresses to aprons to umbrella stands to pop art! Here's a collection of old and new.

Talbots? Really?


Okay readers, bear with me here for a minute. Yes, Talbots. Generally Talbots brings to mind grandma fashions, but it can actually be a great resource for ladies who like a vintage feel. The cuts are all super ladylike, they offer a wide ranges of sizes, and their summer colorways are great! I am especially drawn to them after a day of horrific sights in Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach. When did it become okay to wear a string bikini no matter what your body type? Shouldn't bikinis be reserved for supermodels only? I vote yes.
