These are all the pictures I wanted to post since September but never did. Eyes, bon appetit.
The first three photos are what I would look/dress like if I had a lot of money and were on a vegan diet.

This is the only picture I'm posting of something I thought was abhorrent.

Alright, on with the pretty stuff.

Even though this marriage didn't work out, you have to admit, the intimacy illustrated in the picture symbolizes something that almost everyone wants at some point in their lives.

This is my friend Kat illustrating why feminine hats should come back. Did I do an article on this yet?

I just can't get away from dresses. They contain endless possibilities.

Coming soon, however, are amazing jeans and belts. They're a little harder to find among the endless haystacks of unflattering fodder, but I'll guide you as best I can.

the joy of contrast and reruns

Two things I wish I possessed:
One: The opportunity to rock such an amazing shade of neon pink lipstick.

Two: The innate skill and vast amounts of hairspray it takes to recreate the Breakfast at Tiffany's Audrey Hepburn up-do.

dressed to kill (or at least knock 'em to the floor)

I am very much liking the more form-fitting dresses that are in (versus the moo-moo and curtain ones that seem to be running rampant, don't ask), but with the littler, mini dresses I worry that it'll encourage another revolution of anorexia. Remember the skinny part of the 80's, 90's, and 00's? Ghastly! I was beginning to be encouraged by the amazing people in the media who represented a more curvy variety of beauty. America Ferrera is one them. Here she is looking fly in a casual yet stunning dress. Kelly Ripa is starting to look scary-skinny, and it worries me, because if this becomes a trend, there will be scores of people blowing away in the wind and getting stuck in trees. What a mess. And here are two other celebrities who happen to be thinner BUT healthy-looking in dresses I ADORE. Both the blue/black and black/white are classy yet popping. Both utilize the belt well, too. I still will be featuring my article on belts sometime soon. :)

I was going to write about Audrey, which I will, but I'm not going to do that today, because the undertaking is going to require a scanner and more time than I have at the moment. So instead I'll just write about a few things I was thinking about, fashion-wise.

First off, I found a website to buy accessories that made me wish every shopping website were designed like this. It is You should go there and play if you feel like conveniently browsing through pretty things. :) I almost bought a pair of fuschia flats from there but then realized I was only hypnotized by their amazingness; I would only wear them twice. Thus, no dice.

Also, I'm not usually a fan of silvery dresses, but isn't this pretty? Claire looks radiant. It's Gucci.

I love that v-neck and the soft silk (is it silk?) belt. So flatterinnnng....

Oh, and one more thing. I've done some casual browsing through the Resort 2008 fashion shows, and man...I love what they're doing! The bright colors and interesting combinations make me smile. Apparently snippets of the 80's are still around.
Understand, however, I've only browsed into the B's of designers, so I'll post more of what I like as I get further in. The designers are
1) Akris
3)Badgely Mischka

free to roam

It was proven to me last week how numb I've become to the fact not everyone is used to seeing breasts. I didn't think about how appalling it would be to check out someone's fashion blog expecting a refreshing series of delightful and wholesome items and see, instead, a horrific image of Anne Hathaway's "mammary glands", as my father put it. All I was thinking when I posted the picture was "Holy buckets of blood! What a fashion travesty!". I was not thinking about the actual body parts.
So in learning this, I most sincerely apologize if I made anyone cringe for a week. It was sort of the effect I was going for, but I wanted the world to gasp at the bad wardrobial choice, not the actual chest. So, if you care to observe, I censored the picture. Never again will I cause such visual anguish.

And on to something more refreshing. Today was Princess Diana's birthday, so I wanted to post a picture demonstrating her timeless class and glowing kindness. She is one of my fashion role-models, for sure.

Here we go. I was delighted to find a picture of her not only in a gorgeous suit and heels, but talking with Mother Theresa, who had the most beautiful heart of all, so I found it gloriously appropriate to include her as well.

Happy birthday, Di. I wish you were still around, because I think you would've aged so gracefully and I would've loved to have seen not only that but the greater scores of good works you would've accomplished for children and the poor. That goes for you too, Ma Theresa. What a lovely pair of ladies.

Tomorrow or later this week when I have more time I'm going to post an entry on Audrey Hepburn, so keep checking back!

a tear has been shed.

Anne Hathaway was moving up the ladder of fashion classiness in my book of standards, but after seeing her where something like this outside the house, she has been erased from my book entirely. Everyone is allowed the occasional revolting fashion faux pas, but this was just plain tastelessness when applied to her situation.

The only time I can justify a top like this is on the runway with models who don't have chests. Oh Anne, how you've disappointed me so! Your cute earrings did not save you. I've discovered my fashion religion has no Jesus to forgive all sins. Things can add up to eventually send a person to fashion hell, and if a certain sin is bad enough, the person can be sentenced to eternal burning right away.

I'll write something more positive next time. To end on something good, here's a picture when she was still on the path of the good and true. *sigh*
