Sandy is wreaking havoc on the East coast of the U.S. and Canada. While I am writing this there are 6000 people without power in the city of Toronto. There is a lot of rain and high winds and I’m afraid to go to bed. There are trees all around me and I’m afraid one will crash on my house. I better knock on wood. Okay did it and now I’m back.
Last week the ladies of Carriage Trade told me to come on over and try on their beautiful clothing and jewelry for upcoming posts. I love that store and the best part is I get to wear their beautiful pieces and my husband doesn’t freak out because our credit card statement stays reasonable because I don’t have to buy anything. But I’m just wondering if there isn’t a party or two I could wear this dress too…damn beautiful clothing at Carriage Trade…
Not sure if you noticed but I went back to my roots (literally). I like to go dark in the fall/winter seasons. It’s only hair and I can dye it back in a month. I didn’t think like this when I was in high school. As a young woman your hair was a big deal! It’s still a big deal, we all talk about good hair days and bad hair days. I would never have dyed my hair on a whim or cut off that much length when I was younger. Now I’ll take more risk. I won’t be sporting a short crop, only because I wore my hair like that in my early twenties and it’s not my best look.
There was one Croatian girl I grew up with who had the guts to do whatever she wanted with her hair – her name was Alison and she was fierce. Honestly she would have blond hair my length and then come to kolo practice with black spiky hair. I never knew what she was going to do next and I was always in awe of the fact she just did it. How many high school girls did you know who would do that?
I love that I can play with the ruching of this dress. Just move the folds to cover the areas you want to hide. I know you can’t hide too much but that’s what body slimmers are for, non?
Who needs a little black dress? Purple will do!
