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!
