In Fashion, In Vogue, In Death

It's been a sad week for celebrity deaths with the passing of Robin Williams closely followed by the death of Hollywood legend Lauren Bacall. The death of Mr. Williams particularly jarred me because he played such a large role in my childhood, from Mork & Mindy to Dead Poets Society to Hook. If death teaches us anything, it's to live and enjoy every moment. I know I need to do a better job of relishing in the good each day brings me... a kiss from Chapin, a sweet look from George, a call from my Mom, a text from one of my sisters. These are all good things, and I am thankful for them. If I'm working a 12-hour day, or cursing my alarm for waking me up at 4:45 a.m., I at least know I am truly loved, and I love in return. That is what life is about, isn't it?

Now, on to the fashion...

Dress: Nanette Lepore Hot Pursuit Dress in Grape

Amazon has the Nanette Lepore First Love Jacquard Sheath Dress in a different color combination (black/white), and is also selling the Hot Pursuit dress in all black for under $100! Hurry before sizes run out. What a great deal.

Shoes: Prada Leather Cutout Ankle Booties

I'm excited for Book Club today. The topic of discussion: Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
