Some thoughts from the weekend...
shoes pictured here are Aldo (gasp!). I'm not late on the aldo bandwagon but these take the retailer to new heights in my eyes.
Lizzie Fortunato teamed up with Urban Outfitters to create affordable versions of her crafty jewelry. I swoon.
Isn't it strange that vena cava's line for via spiga never seemed to get any press? 3 styles are on sale- these clogs which i love the most are not and they don't come cheap $295.

While Mondays always present some kind of obvious hurdle (will we ever get to Friday?) I still console myself with a few thoughts...
1. the sunny day outside my window
2. Levi Johnston on the Today Show
3. The Bachelorette on ABC tonight (eeek! this one may be a do-sy tonight)
Not all bad.
A few pictures that make me happy- first is chanel couture, brigitte bardot in a floppy hat, givenchy fierceness (couture). What's your favorite thing about Mondays dieters?

I'm going to try to start back up with the diet for really no other reason than I am aching to spit out self-indulgent musings and while the past few months were impossible as far as the "work-life balance" is concerned, I'm challenging myself in the discipline of time management to get myself back in the blogosphere.
I've missed you.
For starters, while I wanted to share the fact that there seemed to be something oddly inappropriate about the decision of kate moss to wear a shirt as a dress (or what likely should have been a shirt but the god's of high fashion deemed far too fabulous to share the spotlight) to Beth Ditto's plus size clothing line launch party at Sketch in London, I became nervous about the implications of such a critique.
Am I being completely nuts (hyper critical) and maybe even somewhere in here, toeing the "offensive" line by presuming that it's wrong to flaunt a skinny skinny skinny body at a plus size clothing launch? Let's leave the final verdict at ironic. Very.

Hijoles Dieters! Goodness...
Last night was a furious release of a long week, complete with delicious, greasy food, wine, beer, and even late night cupcakes (red velvet from Billy's to be exact).
You can likely imagine the physical sensation I have in my head right now, pre-advil kick-in. I love seeing your comments below! What a lovely return. Gleeful blushing ensues...
Today I am on a mission to stock the closet with a couple of key "work-appropriate" pieces. A chore indeed. Being me, I am twisting the definition of this attire, but realized with dismay this week that try as I might to make my current wardrobe work, I'm the black sheep. Not a bad thing, but a gray sheep feels more desirable so early in my tenure.
I'll let you know what I find.
Above you see latte goodness. At my house, I've been starting my mornings with the following "New Year: New Intention for Wellness" (whether or not this intention is put into practice...)
Hence, coffee will never be deleted from the diet, but I make my latte with some Cafe Bustelo (budget friendly and eerily similar to the coffee they served at my language school in BCN), warm almond milk and agave.
The flavor is so strange and lush. Almost smokey, toasted, but still sweet and creamy. Good morning.

So below when I did that shoot, you'll see a flannel blue plaid shirt that I bought specifically for the shoot, with the intention of returning, only to keep. It was a gift to myself for the low price of $15, something that felt ok, even in a recession.depression or otherwise economically challenged time.
People. This is my favorite shirt ever. And it came from Old Navy in the Men's department, which is now my new favorite haunt. G bought me another, this time a 100% cotton, pinstriped beauty with classic tailored shirt detailing for (he told me) $10. I am absolutely in love and have decided there is nothing better than an oversize men's collared shirt this time of year. To hide the consumption, ward the cold and still feel sexy. Seriously.
