Sleep in Your Car

I found this funny how-to on WikiHow. Sorry for my absence. I do have a life, but more will come, I promise.

The Best Almost-Instant Manicure:

Most everyone knows that I love painting nails, and that I'm a sucker for bright, happy, cutesy colors. Those are all well and good for toenails, but for my hands, I prefer something a bit less distracting. Enter Borghese nail lacquer in Angelica Blush. In just the right shade of translucent pink, it is very pretty without looking unnatural. So, you just start with clean, filed nails, sweep on a coat of polish, and voila! Perfect!

Love in the Library

Oooh...I love the library! I am always falling for one or two or twenty books in there. Librarians are some of the most intriguing people around, and so helpful. They usually inquire as to whether I need help carrying my 17 lb stack back to my car. Dear souls.
Yes, so anyway, last time I paid a visit, I found this fantastic gem. It has a nebulous "Scando-Japanese" look, with cool and cozy colors paired in a most pleasing way. And the projects are darling! In most cases, I will check out a book, salivate over the designs, and return it before I can actually realize any of my inspirations. This time; however, I am working on the party bag. Sewn from plummy shantung, lined with a flowery print, and adorned with little ruffles, it is quite a treat. I'll post pictures when I have it done.

Baby Treats

I LOVE baby clothes!! I've always been a fan of anything small, and "big people" clothing reinterpreted in a miniaturized scale is way too scrumptious cute! Here is what I found at Twilite Moon:
Little boys are awesome because you can throw together just about anything for an outfit, and they somehow end up looking fantastic. And vertical stripes are a must.You can stone, burn, and red-letterize me, but it is my firm belief that all guys should wear cords. No particular reason, other than I think they are the coolest thing left behind by the 70's, and they always look great.

Itty bitty laces. Miniscule stitching. Way too cute.

They're red, and they're Mary Janes. I totally envy any little girl I see wearing these.

I love this dress! It looks so grown-up and pretty, and would match those Mary Janes perfectly.

I'm not too hot on the idea of women wearing suspenders, but it works for this little throwback.
Ok, enough for today. More style at a later date.
