Take Me Back

h&m cat dress

Today I'm going out to lunch with a friend in my old neighborhood.  I'm happy that our family owns a home these days but I'll always miss living in such an eclectic city.  What once was miles of new, interesting, independently owned establishments has now been replaced with an endless abundance of chain restaurants and mega stores.  Moving to the suburbs has its perks but the shopping or dining experiences isn't one of them.  I guess it just forces me to get all nostalgic and make my way back every once in awhile!

Luscious Rose

Bernie Dexter Scallop Dress in Luscious Rose print 002

Have you ever felt like you've packed too many fun things in a weekend?  Well, it's only Sunday morning and I already feel like I'm spent.  Friday night my sister in law and I attended the Pinup Girl Clothing Prom.  It was so much fun!  My brother never took his now wife to prom so I thought it would be fun for the two of us to go together.  We got all dolled up, took prom pictures, saw a Masuimi Max burlesque show, enjoyed an Ivy Levan performance, and had some late night Argentine empenadas.  My feet are still numb from shoving my hooves into 6 inch platform heels but it was completely worth it.

Yesterday we took Bianca to her baby BFF's first birthday party.  It was great to be around friends and family for the day.  It also has me thinking about Bianca's party (in January).  I didn't realize how much work even a smaller party will be for her until I saw our friends hosting their daughter's special day.  I have no idea what the plan is, but I know I need a lot of time to get everything together.  I'm thinking maybe a Hello Kitty theme?

What's On My Radar: Current Loves

I'm happy to say that I've avoided shopping all month.  I'm surprised that I have such strong willpower!  Of course, I always have a wishlist a million miles long.  Who doesn't?  Here are my favorites this month:

Modcloth Yacht It All Dress
This dress immediately caught my eye, probably because it looks like two pieces.  I love the combination of vertical and horizontal stripes.  It is definitely a showstopper!


gojane jelly ballet flats
I'm one of those people who is happy that jellies came back around.  Add an insane amount of glitter and a cute bow and they go right to the top of my wishlist.  They also come in three other colors.


Modcloth Belle at the Reception Dress
No joke, this is pretty much the most beautiful dress I've ever seen.  It looks like the perfect 50's homecoming dress.  The crossed off the shoulder neckline is so pretty and I adore the full skirt.  I absolutely need this!


gojane striped ball clutch
Such a cute clutch!  I've always been attracted to stripes and this is no exception.  This is the perfect bag for a wedding or a night out with my husband.


Modcloth Dreamy Day Away Dress in Flourishes
I can't get enough of this cut.  It kind of reminds me of a Bernie Dexter, with the sweetheart neckline and the thick straps.  It gives a little sex appeal without feeling on display.  I'm all for any dress that lets me wear a regular bra, it's really important!


Gojane garden soiree pleated skirt
I really like these pieces together but I think they'd add so much more to my closet separately.  The skirt is gorgeous!  The top may be a little too exposed for me, but it's a great set regardless.


What's on your list this month?

Island Dreaming

eShakti floral dress

Recently I was contacted by eShakti to do a review on one of their products.  As a self proclaimed dress hoarder, I was ecstatic to choose a new dress for summer.  It took me about two days to actually choose the one I want.  Seriously, there are way too many cute options!  I ultimately decided on this floral number.  Not very surprising, right?
