back view

This last week was a bit on the cooler side so I pulled out an old, long-sleeved vintage dress and my oh so trusty black boots.

I was a little unsure about this dress, I hadn't worn it in nearly two years... so it was almost headed to the resale shop, but I realized that the high collar was what I didn't like about it... so easy fix! I cut it into a lower neck line and voila! A cute print dress with a fun something in the back, buttons! (which are really hard to do up alone in the am...)

monumental beauty

I just discovered this amazing installation, Leviathan, by Anish Kapoor. Every year the Grand Palais in Paris invites an artist to do an installation (Monumenta) in this amazing and historic space. This particular piece just pushes right into the existing space, it's as if this modern orb is having an intimate conversation with the old staircase of the Grand Palais

the INSIDE! so cool! like exploring an alien planet... I've always imagined Mars to be just like this

I just can't stop looking at these images and would lovelovelove to get back to Paris and explore these red shadows and twists and turns

...nothing like a little eye candy for your Thursday morning! to read more check out

skirts and stuff

guh, the spring show at the ballet is finally over! which, in my world, means I finally have time to......breathe, grocery shop, clean house, regain sanity and BLOG! I've been rocking some skirt action of late... here are a couple of shots from the past few weeks, I love the mid length skirt, I can move around at work without the mini-skirt fear of flashing (which is key) and I can get out of the jean rut.

as a costumer I'm a big proponent of foundation garments! (aka spanx and slips) and this pink one is a favorite!

had to remix my favorite polka-dot skirt!
