Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

Isn't this just the sweetest little dress for summer!
From the front it appears to be a plain sheath, but turn around and SURPRISE!
Designed by Alexandra Grecco, you can buy it here on Etsy
It reminds me of a piece Zooey Deschanel would wear...
Happy Wednesday!

To Be or Not To Be... A Bridesmaid

Everyone should go see the movie Bridesmaids... only one word is needed to sum up my review of this film... HILARIOUS!
If you are a fan of uncomfortable moments and awkwardness then this is the movie for you. SNL's Kristen Wiig & Maya Rudolph are brilliant in this film with witty lines and scene stealing facial expressions.
In honor of the movie and the current wedding season..
Today's post is inspired by all of the incredibly tolerant bridesmaids out there!

Coiled Coif

I am attending a wedding this weekend and no idea how to wear my hair..
Forecast: 70's and rainy... not ideal
The problem with having uber thick hair is that there is just too much of it wear an updo without looking prom-y, down and curly= fro, down & straight.. well, it's what I wear everyday. Sometimes I wish my hair were thinner so that I could pull it into a cute style like Caroline via A Cup of Jo...  
JUMP to read the how to!

Any other suggestions?

Sleeping with the Fishes

I am dreaming of a vacation... perhaps some far away place... somewhere exotic.. somewhere I can have a new adventure! In researching destinations and ultimate vacations I came across the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. Last year the hotel converted its underwater restaurant into a guest suite. Encased in plexiglass , the room sits five meters under the Indian Ocean and is accessible by spiral staircase. 
My fear of fish might deter me from staying here but the views are a spectacle to behold. What do you think... would you stay in an underwater hotel room!?

Monday Mornings....

via The Sartorialist
Monday mornings.. what can I say.. somedays I don't even know what I end up wearing or how my ensembles came to be. I wish I could look as chic as this lovely lady even if things are a bit backwards!

Happy Monday!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Classy in Charcoal Gray

Love Ziyi Zhang's deep gray one armed sheath dress at Ralph Lauren's celebration of "L'Art de l'Automobile" at the Louvre's Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Everything about her look exudes class and sophistication. She has certainly come a long way since her Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon days!
