Welcome to Georgia, Patricia

Hurricane Patricia, at least its remnants, has set its windy, rainy eye on Atlanta. Today was simply miserable: cold, wet, devoid of sun, and overall just a day you wish you could spend watching TV in bed. Unfortunately, like most people, I had to be at work today. At least Monday is almost over... though I think the weather is not going to improve much until the weekend. It was so windy today it would hard to get a good picture!

Today I'm wearing a dress from a brand called Leota. It's my first (and currently) only dress by the brand, which I discovered on, one of my favorite discount sites. You can find Leota on sites like Amazon and Nordstrom, and the brand is well known not only for its cute and inexpensive dresses, but also for chic maternity wear.

This blue cap sleeve dress is just adorable, though like most cheaper brands, it's not that well made. It is not lined and has no zipper, so over the head it goes.

I like mixing in more inexpensive fare with higher priced items to really build out your wardrobe, and many celebrities are starting to do the same. You will see movie stars wearing an H&M top or Zara jacket with higher priced jeans and Manolo Blahniks. It's fun to see what cheaper items the stars pick up! I almost feel like Sharon Stone started this trend when she wore a shirt from GAP to the Oscars in the 90s.

Dress: Leota Blue A-Line Cap Sleeve Dress

Shoes: Stuart Weitzman Peep-Toe Pumps

Nail Color: Essie Luxedo

I had a mani/pedi this weekend at Nouvelle Nail Spa in West Midtown (Atlanta). I love a dark nail color that is so bold it's almost black... but not quite. This color is a very deep purple, and goes with just about anything.
