Day 7 & 8

Just a quick recap from yesterday + today’s ensemble! I meant to blog yesterday, but instead spent most of my day working on a solution for a client of mine and then after all the computer time I was exhausted. Something about staring at a lighted screen for hours just makes me sleepy!!! I also haven’t been feeling up to par as of late anyway. Bad combination!!

Yesterday I wore this:





Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Dress: Hot Topic, Twilight dress (thrift store find)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Brooch on dress: Downtown Los Angeles

And today, I am embracing “poofy dress!!!” syndrome:




Cardigan: Target
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Necklace: Target

Isn’t my necklace the cutest? Target hits a home run again! Here’s another shot of it, and the other “critter” piece I picked up:


So so so cute!!! They are also on sale right now, AND they had piles of adorable “critter” bracelets. I don’t wear bracelets much or I would have been tempted.

Have a wonderful Thursday! Tomorrow is Friday, and then I am claiming the entire weekend to be “Mothers Day”, and I intend to get some projects done. I have a bookshelf and two tables to paint/refinish, and a photo collage to finish. Of course I always start the weekend with great intentions, let’s see if it happens this weekend! The weather is supposed to be favorable, that will help. Just need my arthritis to cooperate!

Until next time,


Monday Blues

Er, perhaps that should be greens! But I’m really not blue today, it just sounded like a fun title.

My outfit today:




Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Dress: Reproduction from Twilight
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Decolette

And yesterday I repeated my Saturday afternoon “stay home and bake” outfit:


Cardigan: Chaps
Dress: Kate Spade (isn’t is freaking ADORABLE?!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simple

I figured I didn’t go anywhere Saturday evening, so I threw it back on again on Sunday to run some errands. And bake. (Only me!)

Some of my recent escapades:

I tore my closet apart looking for a skirt I may or may not have owned once:


Did not find missing mythical skirt (I even scoured my photos and blog, so perhaps I dreamed it?! Hrm!!!), but I did clean my cardigans & shoes up:



Of course it is temporary. Within a month or so, the chaos will be back. Sigh.

I also made some baked goods this weekend:




And shipped a TON of goodies out this morning, from sparkly shoes to sparkly cookies, these packages will (hopefully!) bring joy and enhance the recipient’s lives.


Yes, I am acutely aware of how utterly ridiculous I am! Kids are all on half day this week, so I figure I will be a little crazier than normal. Tomorrow I’ll share some of my thrift finds from this morning! Super score! (Things are being laundered, so photographs are not possible at this moment)

Until next time,
