'All the World's a Stage'


I can not tell you how absolutely HOT it was when I shot these pics.  I swore early menopause was upon me.  Had to keep the car running with AC, snap, jump in the car, look at photos, run back out and repeat.  Nosy neighbor stopped me to ask me what I was doing, and I in turn had to explain to her what a fashion blog was.  I was tempted to reply that I'm extremely vain and just like to take pics of myself for the hell of it.  I dunno, I'm just not that interested in what other people are doing.








First wore this dress here! I love it so!!

What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Anthropologie
Shoes: Calvin Klien Remi
Hat: Lord & Taylor
Necklaces: Lord & Taylor, JCrew

Hung out with Pamela of Cinderella's Closet last Thurdsay evening at Lina Frey for a chance to enter a shopping competition. Here's hoping we win Pamela!! 







LOVED this woman's jewelry!

  8. Beautiful look and the 'story' about your neighbours really funny :) I'm usually switched off while I'm taking pictures and don't care if someone is looking but feel a bit irritated when people are asking why i take photos of myself. xoxo

  24. I love this dress from anthropologie. it has a SJP feel (like the dress she wore in sex and the city the movie).

    The necklace is fabulous....

    And I am wishing I could have some of the heat back...its getting cold and "fall like"

    where did it go?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha, your first few sentences made me laugh. I often wonder what people think of me when I am getting my picture taken but I just try not to think about it now! ;)
    They probably think I am some crazy asian tourist that likes to take a bazillion photos, haha.
    You look gorgeous lovely - I absolutely adore your second outfit!!

  51. Love both outfits. Hilarious - glad I'm not the only one who buys shoes in the same style, but in a different color ;) the pics don't do justice to those CKs

    I'm still reeling from finally seeing that outfit in person. Hope we'll be the feuding friends on the show :)

  69. "I thought menopause was on me" bahahaha! The first is one of my favorite looks. I like the little bit of drama you brought to a daily look. People in fashion sometimes worry a look is too "costumey" but life is a stage anyway, so why not have some fun?? <3

  70. you look as perfectly chic in black and white in daylight as in glittering grey at night! :)
