Why are we here?

I realized recently that my dress collection is out of control. It has been growing for a while, but it hasn't seemed so ridiculous until I had to move it all into its very own closet. I commandeered the guest bedroom closet this weekend. I had been stashing a few things in there, but now I've made it my own.

This is most of my dresses. I have a few out on loan, a few in the laundry and probably one or two more lost in the heap in my room. I've organized them by style, then by length and color. This is probably the last time this closet will look this good.

"A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off you." - Francoise Sagan


Get y'all black tees on,

All black everything.

Black cards, black cars,

All black everything.

I'm in a little bit of a Jay Z phase. New Subaru? Black. Black or white iPhone? Black. For years I tended bar at a place where I had to wear all black every night. This about killed my desire to ever wear black outside of work. Now that I am several years free of that place, I've started to embrace black again. I look good in black. It makes me feel about as bad ass as a tall, skinny, blonde girl from the burbs can. I'm gonna run with it.

Fashion Attrocity #501

Yves Saint Laurent Jelly Shoes.

This is a disgrace. I guarantee you Msr. Saint Laurent himself is rolling over in his grave right now. Jelly shoes are for children. And at $500 a pair, no self respecting grown ass woman would ever put these on her feet.
