When all this rain goes away, here’s the first thing I want to wear…
I haven’t made a set on Polyvore in a while, but I’ve been thinking about lemon lime combinations and colors for a few days… and so here’s this:
I dream of a Parisian getaway, and in my fantasies I’m extremely well dressed while touring the beautiful city of lights. I created a Polyvore set to match. A fashion ‘soundtrack’, if you will!
Cause, uhh… “This is how we do it… South Central does it like nobody does…” It’s friday night!! Brings back memories.
Good news: received my coupon code for the free Shutterfly holiday cards last week, I placed my order, and they arrived today! They look FANTASTIC! I can’t wait to mail them out!
And, speaking of holidays, that reminds me – I’m joining up with the Ornament Swap! It’s hosted by Laura of The Luckiest in Love. I love buying fun ornaments. One of my favorites is a taco ornament I won from a white elephant swap! Company holiday parties, LOL. If you’re interested in taking part, click on this handy-dandy button to find out how to join in the fun!
Last night the Gomers came up to Napa to visit. We had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Fume Bistro, to celebrate Justin passing his exam – with distinction! Woo hoo! He’s now free to start up his dissertation. He’s practically a doctor already!
I was bored on Polyvore again, so here’s some more loveliness:
I hope your weekend rocks!! XOXO
Some fall inspiration…
I am so glad we’ve finally got fall weather here in California. This past weekend the temperature was in the 80s! Finally, though, today we’ve cool breeze, orange leaves and a high of 70, with lows expected in the 40s.
A few random notes:
1. I have a major headache, and I don’t know what to do about it.
2. Marco is DEFINITELY the cutest boy in the world.
3. Today I am wearing my gorgeous brown Jeffrey Campbell boots. I love them.
4. Sometimes I wish I was Jewish, because I love matzoh ball soup, challah, and 8 days of family celebrations and love sounds FREAKING AWESOME.
5. I’m feeling a little unloved, because I haven’t heard anything about the job I interviewed for on Monday. I even sent the Thank You note! Damn. They said I’d hear back this week, so there’s a few days…but I’m losing confidence with every hour that passes.
6. I am super-duper excited about Thanksgiving! We’ll be spending another Thanksgiving with Micaela and her family – last year was amazing, and I can’t wait!
7. Dude! Marco is going to be 6 months old next week!!
Anywhooo… enjoy your Wednesday! I’m glad the week’s almost over.
I know I’m a little Las Vegas-obsessed lately – but now I have the song ‘Viva Las Vegas’ stuck in my head, by Elvis Presley (King of Rock N Roll and a Las Vegas legend).
I am not a huge Elvis fan, but there are some good songs in the catalog. ‘Suspicious Minds’ is probably one of my favorites; and of course, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, ‘Blue Suede Shoes’…not exactly ready to hit Graceland, but I can do a hip swivel if necessary!
Anyway…speaking of suede shoes, look at all these pretties! I am drooling over here. Just think how cute they would look walking around the casinos, hitting up the slot machines, and enjoying Cirque du Soleil!!
The past few days I’ve had a hankering to go to Las Vegas, especially after reading about THIS and THIS. I’ve only ever been once, and I was 12 at the time – therefore, while neat, it didn’t hold NEARLY as much fun as it will if I go NOW…
Tim is less than interested, so I am working on rounding up my ladies to do a trip in January. I looked around on Priceline and found some amazing deals for the Venetian hotel!
We can see this:
Enjoy some of these:
And maybe see this:
I figure my wardrobe can look something like this (because sequins and feathers are practically mandatory):
Sooo…how ’bout it?
I love Grey as a neutral. I think it is such an elegant color, and does especially well with occasion dresses.
There are two fashion details that I think are perfect for ANY occasion when done right:
I love things that sparkle! I’m a complete girly-girl whenever I see glitter and glitz! My tomboy side goes into hiding, LOL…
Skirts are a great way to dress up without looking out of place (though, personally, I’d rather over-dress than under-dress for an occasion!). Throw a casual tee and a bold necklace with any of these skirts for a great look.
