I feel like I should introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. M Street. I pass by them every morning on the way to work, then again in the afternoon, and they always make my day. I prefer the days when he is wearing a bow tie, I’ll have to remember to take a picture when he is. But don’t you just love her outfit?



Ive been wanting a nice pair of penny loafers for a while now, so I finally broke down and bought some! I just can’t decide, should I put a penny in them or not? Maybe I’ll use Euro. . .

The Oscars were a lot of fun to watch last night! I am still sore Les Miserables didn’t get Best Picture. . . phooey. But The Paperman did win best animated short! Whoot!

The real question that is burning in the back of my mind is: where were all the cool dresses?  (Didn’t I ask this same question last year?) I feel like it was a rather lackluster selection this year. No colors. No cool details. A lot of black, gold, and sequins, greys and whites, blues, and reds. And what was poor Anne Hathaway thinking when she picked that pink number?

If anyone wants to hire me as their stylist for the next Oscars, please, feel free to drop me a line. I could totally drum up some more interesting outfits. . . like this!

So it’s been depressing as all get-out here, the rain never stops. It’s overcast and gloomy. I’ll admit that I don’t handle the cold very well, but I do better when there is quantitative amounts of sunshine. So, to brighten your day(and mine), here are a few clips.

A happy music video full of sunshine!

Make a bowl and eat it all! (Just remember what your mother told you about eating raw egg.)

Information on deserts to take your mind off all the nasty rain.

Don’t forget, summer clothes! Vogue fashion shows for Spring/Summer 2013.

St. Scolastica the patroness of weather.

Homemade Limoncello – it’s like sunshine in a bottle.

Um, because it was too funny not to include.

This necklace is so cool! It would be like wearing the Milky Way!

And while we are on the topic of the Milky Way, can I just say that is the best name ever for our galaxy? We name the planets after gods, which is great and all, but we call our galaxy via lactea – poetry wins the day again!

How hard do you think it would be to make a tulle skirt? I don’t think it would be that hard (heheh, famous last words). I mean really, I wouldn’t even have to hem it, which is the worst part about making a skirt. (I guess the underskirt would need to be hemmed, but if I made it out of something like jersey and then put fray check on it, it might work just fine.)

How much do I hate the hemming? In high school I would sew a skirt and then take it to a tailor to be hemmed – not because I was lazy, but because I hate hemming.

I have to say, traffic this morning was the best its been since that one still week in summer when all the interns leave before school stars again and everyone else is grabbing last minute vacations on the beach. Everyone is voting. Go team America! I voted absentee this year because I was supposed to be in CA right now – thanks hurricane Sandy.

And I tried to dress patriotically this morning – and that turned into an epic fail, color wise I mean. Red stockings with fuchsia heels and a black dress. Very Kate Spade – but not the red, white and blue scheme I was hoping to achieve. I forgot that I threw out my pair of blue flats this summer and didn’t remember until I was fully dressed and ready to head out the door.  And I didn’t have the guts to wear my über sparkly, über high, blue heels. But I did have the nerve to wear red and fuchsia together. Go figure. (I wish I had a picture to complete this, sadly it wasn’t possible.)

Perhaps after reading this you are thinking I should have more serious thoughts on my mind today than what I am wearing. And I do. I’ll be praying and fasting all day today for the election outcome – you should too.

“Excuse me, Miss? Your slip is showing,” she said. The embroidered cats on her sweater looked accusingly at the offending strip of white muslin peeping out from under the yellow skirt.

“Oh, it isn’t a slip, it’s part of the skirt. Just for decoration, but thanks anyway!” Said the Miss as she added dollop of cream to her coffee.

“I guess they were trying to make it pretty or something.” She said woefully as she walked out of the lunchroom.

“Um, yes, I suppose so,” Said the Miss to the coffee pot.

I am so excited for the launch of this new blog, The Evangelista. The Evangelista is by Christina Grace, a simply lovely girl of my acquaintance with the most amazing wardrobe and sense of fashion ever! I’ve been waiting for ages for her blog to go live, and I can’t wait for her to share her knowledge!

I love everything about this outfit! I wonder if I have any stripes and florals that would go together. . . time to raid the closet!
