Ladies of leisure…

Ladies, let’s just admit it. It’s a fantasy to sit around in front of an elaborate vanity and to apply makeup at our leisure. In my mind, I am using a giant powder puff like I used to find in my mom’s drawers as a kid. What completes the image is a beautiful silk robe! There is a trend to provide them to your bridesmaids as a favor but also a practical solution to what to wear while working on hair and makeup. Others believe that there is a place for silk robes in day wear. I have to admit to being on the fence a bit but I can imagine a few choice situations where it might just be magical.

As a bonus Friday post, I am including all examples of all of the above… bridesmaids, ladies of leisure, hippies rocking day robes, and my lifelong friend MLT in her very own Betsy Johnson silk robe that she uses every day. Oh to be glamorous!



Ladies of Leisure:


I have been obsessed with that striped one for ages. I think it’s amazing…

This is probably my favorite of the two day outfits.

Celebrities of course (really the fictional characters of Holly and Blair)



Real people: MLT





Happy Friday!



Inspired by Pinterest

If you have been reading my blog the last couple of weeks, you have probably seen me reference Pinterest. I do not really know what I did with my life before Pinterest and I don’t know that I care. One of my favorite things to do with Pinterest is to draw inspiration for my own fashion, hair and makeup. My supervisor jokes that she can usually guess what I am going to be wearing the next day by my Pinterest feed. Last night, if she’d been watching she would have seen this:


Her makeup and hair look really inspired me to try my own version. My hair is pretty short so I couldn’t fully re-create the look… not to mention I am not a model! But I did have fun with the heavy cateye! (Taking my own advice!)

Not to mention my striped lemon t-shirt — spoiler alert — lemon is coming!!! 🙂

How’d I do?
