I was totally stoked when J.Crew Factory came out with a dress in the wildcat print. I missed it at retail and kicked myself for not making the purchase when I could. I had this exact outfit in mind: print dress, tartan plaid button down underneath. The shirt that I had in mind was nowhere to be found, but I found this men's extra small hanging out all by it's lonesome on the sale rack. $15, don't mind if I do.
I do this rather often... Get an outfit idea stuck in my head only to get frustrated because I can't find the exact pieces I want. I actually woke up this morning with an outfit idea, but, thank goodness, I have all three pieces. Guess you'll be seeing that soon!
Also, a shout out to my best friend, whose psychoses and neuroses got me this bag for my birthday. This crazy B had overheard me saying that I had missed the boat on the Eat Cake for Breakfast bag and wished that I would have bought one. She called each and every Kate Spade boutique in the country, even after the first twelve told her there were no bags left in the computer, and her last call found this puppy somewhere in the wild blue yonder. That is dedication, folks.
I also wanted to mention how much you guys mean to me. I've had an outpouring of emails, comments, questions, etc. in the past couple weeks and am definitely feeling the love. It certainly keeps me going creatively and emotionally, because, those of us who blog know how emotional it can be. It's like having a second relationship (if you are in one), or a high maintenance boyfriend, but it's totally worth it.
