Dress Like Jess (New Girl)

Today's dress of the day may look familiar to you if you're a fan of the Fox show New Girl. Jess (Zooey Deschanel) wore the Shoshanna Cassidy dress in the 2013 episode "Quick Hardening Caulk." This episode is one of my favorites, because not only does Jess start to admit that she's really attracted to Nick (Jake Johnson), but they visit a home building store together, where everything reminds her of sex.


If you like this magenta Shoshanna dress, you can rent it from Rent the Runway, or visit Shoshanna.com to shop a variety of styles from the designer.

The black and rose gold pumps are from Kate Spade New York. You would not believe the number of compliments I get from people when I wear these shoes. Today, in Publix, the cashier went crazy over them. She even brought her manager and another cashier over to see them. The shoes are sold out, but here's a similar style.


This dress is so comfortable, so I'm excited to wear it to my company's holiday party at Couscous Atlanta tonight. Everyone has worked so hard this year; I'm extremely proud of the team at Local Marketing, Inc.!

A Color Shout

I love all the colors weaving in and out of this tweed Shoshanna dress. Just looking at it brightens my day.

I may look tired because I had to rush George to the vet last night after his left eye started watering, and I noticed he was struggling to keep it open. It turns out, the poor guy has an ear infection in his right ear and an eye ulcer in his left eye.

George had an eye ulcer - a pretty severe one - back in 2006. Fortunately, we caught this one early. If your pug starts winking at you, it's not because he or she knows something you don't. Your pug could, in fact, be having some eye problems.

George is home today in a cone, but hopefully on the road to recovery.

A Decade of Wonderful

Today is a special day in our house: our pug, George, is turning ten! I can't believe that little puppy we brought home is now such a distinguished gentleman.


George is the light of my life. I love him so much more than I thought I could ever love a little dog. He has his own unique personality, and I know he loves me just as much as I love him.

Black Halo LBD


Dress: Black Halo

Don't you just love a good little black dress (LBD)? This one from Black Halo concentrates on the shoulders (there are even shoulder pads) and the waist (via quilting that nips in around the hips) to help draw the eye to more complimentary areas of the body. There is clearly some thought behind the design, and it's much appreciated.
