Throw on. Walk out the door.

There are a number of reasons I love dresses. But I especially adore the entire outfit in one sitting aspect. And they're much easier to pull off than a jumpsuit. Thank Jolet for this easy to wear minimalist number.

A week in Jolet

I went to Highpoint yesterday. And yes, I witnessed a plethora of fashion crimes. Denim cut-offs so short that knickers were hanging out. Pink Barbie tees on women above the age of twelve. Tan-o-rexics so orange they radiated vitamin C. Why oh why do these women not follow Jolet's example?

I hate to sound like a fashion snob, but honestly, isn't this outfit a tad more sexy, if that's what you're going for? I'd like to think so.

What's the date again?

I never know what the date is. It doesn't matter how many times I check the newspaper, I forget instantly. Which is perhaps why I am so enamored with these calendar tea towels. Cute and practical. The perfect gift for oneself, or a friend.

Not sure what to get me for Christmas?

These arrived in store last week and we are officially in love. Handmade by Kim Wallace, I would be more than happy if someone gave me one of these for Christmas. Hint. Hint.

The prettiest tea towels I ever did see...

Are these too pretty to dry dishes with? Probably. Display them in your kitchen instead. Hanging on a vintage towel rack perhaps? Or as a wall hanging. It's up to you. We dare you to stop at one.

Chambray brilliance

Is there anyone out there who doesn't covet a beautifully cut chambray dress to wear during a glorious spring day. Or to cheer one up when things are not so wonderful?

We think not because this Dot and Herby frock is selling out fast! Get in quick if it's on your Christmas wish list.

I can't help it. I love owls

So owls have been going strong for a couple of seasons now. But I can't help it. I still love them. My Betty Jo owl clock from PCB. My Lea Stein owl brooch from ebay. My owl handbag from Hong Kong. And now, this glorious owl tunic that's in store right now. Talk about irresistible.

Playing Beattie Bow

Did anyone else spend their childhood obsessed with the novel Playing Beatie Bow? How I wished that I could travel through time! Now, my dreams are much more obtainable. First up, I'd love someone to buy me this adorable tunic by Beattie. So if anyone's wondering what to buy me for Christmas...

Work it

Workers. That's us. I mean, it takes work to look this good doesn't it?
