Print It Up

I usually am not a big fan of print dresses, but I love the green and blue diamond pattern on this Shoshanna dress. It would be perfect for Earth Day! It's hard to tell from the photo, but the skirt gives a full twirl if I ever were to dance in it. Ah, a girl can dream. Unfortunately, my hubby is not one for dancing.

Dress: Shoshanna Paulette Micro-Pleat Dress

Pumps: Stuart Weitzman Capsize Metallic Cap Toe Pumps

I had my hair done over the weekend, so the red is nice and vibrant for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Here's an inside view:

Chapin and I saw the new Hunger Games movie this past weekend with our friend, Elizabeth. I recently re-read the last book, Mockingay, and I don't know how I'm going to wait another year to see the final movie installment. What are your thoughts on the underlying meaning of these books? Is the Capitol the author's (Suzanne Collins) view of the United States? Real or not real?

Warm in Wool

I love wool dresses, and they are perfect for cold, windy days like today. But living with two pugs means any fabric like wool is immediately covered in pug hair. Oh well, what can you do? I'm not going to give up my two cuddle bugs. Norman was being especially sweet this morning, wanting to nestle in my lap while I ate my breakfast.

Today's outfit is from my favorite designer, Shoshanna: just a simple blue and black wool sheath dress. Colorblocking is one trend that I have embraced wholeheartedly.

Long Sleeves

As many dresses as hang in my closet (room), I don't actually own all that many long sleeved dresses. Today's outfit includes one such dress, though, since it's about 28 degrees in Atlanta. Most of the country is experiencing a very early cold snap. Even Norman, our one-year-old pug mix, needs to wear a sweater when he goes outside!

Feeling Blue

It's so cold here in Atlanta today. I guess I should expect that, with Thanksgiving just two weeks away, but it feels like the temperatures started dropping fairly quickly. I hope we are not in for a bad winter.

Death for My Samsung

Unfortunately, I spent most of today dealing with a death in the family... the death of my laptop. I am in the process of moving everything over to a new MSi laptop that Chapin picked out for me. Here's hoping this one lasts longer than two years.

In a weird coincidence, I did wear black today.

Too Cold

I can't remember ever starting off November with such chilly weather. I'm ready for the warmer temperatures that the meteorologists are promising will arrive later in the week.

This dress is definitely a winter ready dress, so I was happy to break it out to wear today.

Dress: Rebecca Taylor Cap Sleeve Pleated Twofer Dress

Pumps; BCBGMaxAzria

Celebrity Sighting!
The dress has made an appearance on the TV show Last Man Standing.


Chapin and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this past weekend with a wonderful dinner out.

Where: Lusca

What We Ate:
  • Chopped Brussels Sprouts Salad (to start)
  • Pumpkin Swordfish (for me)
  • Charred Octopus (for Chapin)
  • Side of Roasted Okra with Curry Sauce (to share)
We skipped dessert, even though we adore dessert, since there was no chocolate option on the menu. We did enjoy a wonderful bottle of wine with our meal, though: Morgon. We are looking into getting regular shipments!

My Outfit Details:
  • Dress: Rebecca Taylor Lace Bustier Dress
  • Shoes: B Brian Atwood
Chapin's Outfit Details:
  • Shirt: Hugo Boss
Fun Fact: I curled my hair for the occasion, but I am inept with a curling iron and even a curling wand. I used my old Lock 'n Roll set that I've had since I was twelve.

Actress Michelle Trachtenberg (little sister Dawn on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) wore the dress to an event a few years ago.
