welcome to the jungle







Vintage Ann Taylor dress  Grey Dog, Target knee highs/socks & bag, F21 belt & boots 

Oh hey! You know me, just flexing my guns...sorry if the awesomeness blinded you. I found this amazing silk dress where I work and instantly fell in love--the color and the fabric is absolutely dreamy. And it makes me wish I was in Jumanji, hence my "get back you tiger, before I whip you" face in the second photo.

It's my first full week back, after almost 2 weeks of snow days! Which leads me to my slow response to replies and so on. I don't want to be one of those bloggers who never answers back...so give me time. 

Another distraction....NYFW?! Favorite collections so far ( I won't bore you with a bazillion images you've already seen) :  Marc Jacobs ( "Beautiful People" is still on repeat in my head), Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, DVF, Badgley Mischka, Donna Karan, Chris Benz, Thakoon & Rodarte. 

I'm feeling some runway inspired DIYs coming soon! Any suggestions on what you want to see? 


Edit: check out my guest post at missing lovebirds!

Hi! You are about to walk into class. I am waiting for you. Where are you?!? Please come, so I don't die of boredom please!

Anyways, obviously, this outfit is great. Boots + socks is always a winning combo in my book.

It's like if Troop Beverly hills went to the jungle. :P Awesome dress. I'm behind on checking out the Fall '11 shows, but I just watched the Marc Jacobs and I loved it too. I love the skirts that looked liked fish scales. That would be an great DIY project to do.

Gorgeous sunny outdoor photos! The light is perfection! I love your blog design and I'm looking to revamp my blog so I'm wondering if you have any tips or tricks? I know it is such a time consuming thing but how did you do your adorable menu tabs and change the font of your blog roll? No worries if you don't have time to answer, just thought I'd say how pretty it was!

Man, I'm so behind on blogging and commenting! I mean, all I've pitifully done so far is try to keep a relatively regular update on my own, but I do miss commenting on tons of others. >< I do gotta say though, I love that you referred to Jumanji when you wore this dress. Because a) the dress suits you so well and b) I have fond memories of the Jumanji movie, as terrifying as it was and still is.
