Holiday Dinner Dressy Dress

14 Dec

I never really intended to talk about clothing or fashion on this here blog.  But I got a party/dinner/drinks thing next week and I have nothing to wear.  Well nothing to wear that has not been seen before.  Oh, I call this event a thing because I’m not really sure what it is going to be.  It is with my boyfriends company and they have never had a Christmas party before.  It does not help that he said it will be a surprise. But I’m not whining and asking a million questions complaining it will be fun, I like these people and I get to buy an outfitWin-win situation. Anyway, here are some choices I found onlineThere is a black cropped blazer in my closet that hopefully will be involved.

Old Navy

Emerald one of my favorite colors oh and the price is on the cheap side.

Michael Kors via Zappos

Gold sequin sparkly goodness! The cropped blazer would keep it from being over the top.

Kenzie via Zappos

Love the color and the pleating detail.

Ann Taylor Loft

Unusual color for the holidays and cut would be flattering.

Banana Republic

Again, flattering detail and color.

This is kind of the look that is in my head right now.  Only from the knees up, I will most likely pare it with black tights and velvet round toe pumps.  We shall see.  Almost certain I will closely resemble Miss Olivia, right up to the loose perfectly tossed ringlets and in manner of poising effortlesslyHa!  That necklace is sick by the way.

Realize I have not posted pics of my Christmas wrapping as promised but my phone is not letting me upload to my Flicker account. Hopefully soon.


This Weekend Is Mine

7 Oct

Happy Friday!  I am off from work this weekend!  That means two and half whole days that I can focus my time and energy on the many projects around the house.  There may be some sanding and refinishing of the dining room sideboard, possible spay painting in the guest bedroom and maybe some action going down around the front door (fall action that is).  Aw yeah can’t wait.

Oh and Sunday there is soup to be made.   Butternut Squash with pepitas & homemade pumpernickel crostini and Jamie Oliver’s Lentil & Spinach Soup it is going to be so good especially for the people who I am sharing with.  So generous, I know.  Now I won’t be inside the whole weekend I occasionally venture out of the house for reasons other than work.  Thinking of Central Market in downtown Lancaster for some shopping,  need ingredients for said soup.  Also,  a date night with the boyfriend is in the works, dinner and a movie perhaps.  We shall see if I can fit it all in.   Till then have a fabulous weekend below is how in my mind while wearing Old Navy jeans, flats and a cardigan I shall styled during the next two days.  Enjoy!

Pinning My Life Away

30 Sep

So by now most people out there in design blog land know what Pinterest is.  If not let me explain: Pinterest is a service that let’s you store (pin) images from any website onto digital boards on the Pinterest website.  It allows you to categorize the boards to your liking.  For instance a member can have a board just for Pink Rooms or for Places I Want To Travel.  Well I signed up, waited I don’t know how many countless days to be allowed in then finally got my oh so coveted approval.  And let me just tell you it is ingenious…..and maybe the most additive website ever for a design junky like myself!

Now in the morning instead of checking my email I hop right over to Pinterest to see what new goodies have been posted.  If I’m in the mood to look up interiors with lavender I can and dozens of images pop up.  Brilliant!  If something catches my eye I can “pin it” to any of my 25 boards.  Before to save anything I would have to click and save an image then take forever to find it again.  Now it is right in front of me neatly categorized.  Oh and if anyone repins or likes a picture from one of your boards they send you a lovely e-mail (You Have New Pins and Likes on Pinterest).  Getting an email just makes my day a little brighter somehow.  When I finally make it to my email.  Anyway if you are still with me, you can follow me on Pinterest here.  Here are some recent pins for your Friday night enjoyment below.

Andy Cohen Makes Me Smile

31 Jul

I have an unhealthy love of all things Bravo.  Flipping Out, Rachel Zoe, Top Chef, Million Dollar Decorators, etc, etc.  Oh yes bring it on,  if it is a weekend marathon even better, one right after another slowly chipping away my motivation and will.    However, nothing holds a candle to the Real Housewives.  Every time I say I won’t watch I do, like a pile up on the freeway I can not look away.  I realize how bad it is.  These women are vain, snarly, self absorbed and just plain mean to one another.  Well most of them anyway.

On the last New York reunion it was almost unwatchable.  The way they went after each other for the most  petty of reasons.  Kelly (batshit crazy that one) said something about Sonia’s dirty townhouse and Sonia called her out on it.  Kelly acted like nothing happened and started babbling nonsense about being named Como’s nicest celebrity. Or something to that effect.  So once again I wrote these crazy ladies off, said no more.  Till I found this:

Oh I can tell it is going to be a good season a very good season indeed.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and slut pigs to all!

Even Ophelia Needed a Gay Friend

17 Jul

For your entertainment, people.  This parody is what would totally happen if Ophelia from Shakespeare’s Hamlet had a sassy gay friend.  Every lady needs one!
