On blogger preview day for Fashion for Life I ran into Ava Kungler setting up her space, and she was wearing this dress. I was like “WHERE can I get THAT!!” Well it was released a few days ago so not only I but all of you can also get this beauty. My favorite is this orange, black and green pattern, but there are a few other color combinations as well.

Over the past three days half the ceiling in my classroom fell in due to a leak in the roof. The roof is one of those flat seventies inventions that make it completely impossible to find where the leak is coming from, so I’ve been teaching this week with random streams of water pouring in on top of students, books and equipment. Just so you know, trash and recycling bins make very good water catchers and the combination of water and LCD projector makes for some very interesting effects! So today I am ready for whatever the weather may bring, in my adorable Wellingtons from Gospel Voom and umbrella from The Sea Hole Collabor88 event. Here’s hoping for a drier week next week!

That line is never so poignant as it is spoken just after “You can die too, for all I care!” and just before “Oh, my sweet Wesley, what have I done?” Then again, how many lines are out there that can induce a girl to throw herself down a mountain after her captor? Why are those three words so romantic when our current vernacular is as likely as not to be irritating? Some examples:
“Whatever you want”
“Up to you…”
“Just as you like”
“If you say so”
and my favorite:
“Yes ma’am” (gosh I miss the south sometimes)
Somehow it just doesn’t have the same ring.
All this came to mind after receiving Guinevere Decuir’s new “As YouWish” tattoo. There is a slew of new stuff out there so I kind of did a mash-up of whatever I could get to look good together. My sweater and top are new from Janie Marlowe. The cropped sweater is a new mesh item—this color is a customer appreciation gift, but the other available colors are great as well. The yellow undershirt is an addition to Janie’s Needful Things line…and for me Janie’s designs definitely tend to be needful! My shoes are a new design for autumn from Vero Modero.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit Marchesato di Sant’Elia, make some time to visit. It looks appropriately fall-like in these photos but really it could be any season depending on the area you are in and the angle. And check out the Palazzo Donna Emilia—it’s really quite beautiful.
If you’re in the nostalgic mood, here’s a clip of the classic scene:
