Twenty Six (for Him)

We went to Roy's after an afternoon at the spa. I ate my words (deliciously) because I had just said a few days prior that Roy's looks terrible and I have no interest to eat there ever. Now I want to go once a month.

Fifteen Years?!

The Gang, Sex and the City

Where have I been? It's been 15 years since the beginning of Sex and the City and I just discovered/became obsessed with Into the Gloss which did a very good post about it with loads of pictures that took me right back into the gloriously self absorbed ten years (extending to the first movie). Practically all the photos are of my absolute favorite outfits/moments from the show that blew my fashion mind. It's hard to imagine any fangirl of the show wanting to be matchy-matchy. I once met this retail superior who shook her head at my multi color schemes and I'd wanted to scream at her "Carrie Bradshaw can do it!!!"

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 1

Ung. I remember jonesing pretty hard for this incredible blue dress.

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 26

She looked so pretty in this scene with bright pink on the apples of her cheeks.

Carrie Bradshaw and Miranda Hobbes 5, Sex and the City

The construction of that dress!

Carrie Bradshaw and Miranda Hobbes 2, Sex and the City

Seeing that this was her "I look like shit!" outfit, I rethunk my own slothly attire.

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 17

She looked so pretty, sleek, yet quirky in this outfit! Quirky for DvF, that is. DvF was the Tory Burch of the early '00s.

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 32

Her hair! The softness of this whole look! I had a couple (fake) Dior saddle bags that I treasured at that time. It was *the* bag for a moment.

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 37

I'd spent just about every weekend shopping for a large polka dot ANYTHING. And those shoes. Omg.

And then I gave up the search to instead  look for anything folded like this.

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 2

That bun! Those beads! With that dress! It just screams!!!


So simple but this is definitely one of my most favorite outfits of hers. It perfectly showed off her enviable figure while being modest and urban in the summertime and chic carrying around a Snapple (!!!) all at the same time.

Carrie Bradshaw and Miranda Hobbes 6, Sex and the City

That hat! Those cheekbones! The retro!

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 24

How is it possible to look this classy with your bra showing?

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City 25

I need to start wearing more pink immediately.

Svetlana Zakharova

Svetlana Zakharova, a principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, and other dancers perform during a rehearsal of Tchaikovsky's ballet "The Sleeping Beauty" at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow November 17, 2011.

I didn't grow up wanting to be a ballerina, but I've always thought ballerinas were interesting people. Crazy athletes disguised as artists, every day of their lives dedicated to dancing. I bet if I painted every single day eventually I'll achieve just as crazy results. I love seeing behind the scenes/process stuff more than the finished product. This Svetlana girl is crazy. Using 'crazy' three times in one paragraph is crazy not eloquent of me! And this is how she got to be so crazy. Alright that's five crazies.

Hawaiian May

I said "thank you" to Paris Hilton today.

Good Egg

I Would Like to Call It Beauty

Have been obsessed with this song as well as the entire album for pretty much the past 3 yrs. I was telling Shane the other day that when I was a kid, a few of my many fantasy jobs was a department store pianist, and a coffeeshop singer. Not performing in ampitheatres or concert halls. Just casual listeners with no monetary ambitions. He cried saying this explains everything. Born to be a bum.
