oscars 2011!

What a party! A boring show was livened up by a great group of friends for last night’s Academy Awards, and I had so, so, so much fun. Huge shoutout of course to my cohost Lissette, whose beautiful apartment served as party central. We had been prepping, brainstorming, and purchasing for weeks, and it all came together beautifully. But for me, it did not start so beautifully. Ahem:

Yes, I did this on purpose. But it looked good after, I swear!

happy 2011!

Hope everyone had a great NYE! My night was, uh… eventful, to say the least! But I did rock the good old gold dress. And I made a post for it anyway.

From Express, years ago. It was just too perfect a party dress to pass up. And despite feeling like a stuffed sausage when I tried it on earlier in the week (ladies, you know it happens), I ended up feeling great in it.

return of the colored tights!

What a week it’s been so far: shake-ups, shut-ups & dress-ups (as for the latter, ahem, why yes, my friends and I did take an impromptu trip to the Bristol Renaissance Faire on Labor Day) – and it’s only Wednesday. Anyone else? Y’know what else has suddenly happened within the past week, at least here in Chicago? GLORIOUS FALL! To borrow a word from my dear friend Tate, it’s downright autumnal. And you know what that means…

That’s right, the return of the colored tights!

Ok, so for some reason the sun was being particularly unreasonable this morning, but if you can’t tell, my legs are orange.

casual thursday

It has been one of those weeks for me, so I haven’t really been putting much effort into my clothes. It’s also been rainy and glum the past two days (Mother Nature, get out of my brain!), which hasn’t helped.

So today is super casual.

Though I actually love the simplicity and comfort of this look.

easy, breezy, lucky

What’s that I spy after two days of rain & gloom?

Why, it’s the sun! Thank heavens! Hot and humid? Ok, we’re used to it. Hot and humid AND rainy? Ugh, PASS. But today I feel as summery as the weather in this easy-breezy look.

blue skies, blue shoes

I actually didn’t intend to blog today, but I ended up wearing all kinds of stuff never featured, so here I am!

Nothing extraordinary – just a bright, feminine look for a lovely day.

all buckled up

Hello! Been busy around here lately, so I feel like I should apologize for the lack of posts. Sorry! (I’m sure you’ve been waiting oh-so-impatiently and all.)

Just a quick stop to share another cool necklace, also from my friend Teri on my birthday:

“What’s on that pendant?” you ask?
