81 In Misc


I didn't do a thing this past weekend, and it was so nice just to be at home.  (I did try hot yoga, that was brutal)   A few photos I took…they're kind of random, not really a cohesive post, but here goes.  

I've been dying to wear this 80's sequined dress I bought at a thrift store.  I tried mixing it with jeans and a t-shirt so I didn't look like I was trying to be 25.  I kind of liked it.  Not sure if I would wear it out, but it was fun.  
My Givenchy's make everything look good.
Glitzy dress
Still–not sure if this 80's dress is for me.
Staci and townsend
This is a cute photo if I don't say so myself.  They posed perfectly.
Carol looking so grown up.
Sno cone
Me having a sno cone.  Wearing cute Jelly Garcia top purchased in Tokyo.
Mmm wedges
One of my favorite pairs of MMM shoes.  All for now……..

    i would wear the sequined top/dress with jeans and i am more on the conservative side. it looks casual sophisticate. i could not pull off those shoes. perhaps you should sell the top/dress…wink wink
    bikram yoga is great.

    I love the dress paired with the Givenchy’s and the jeans/t-shirt. You could wear it someplace, definitely.
    Still, my favorite piece of yours is the Christopher Kane Gorilla dress.
    You folks are great – keep up the excellent blogging!

    Hi Judy, 80’s dress does looks Balmain-ish but lacking of something, the ‘IT’ factor. Should improve on the sequncing patterns, i feel. And you’re right that your Givenchy shoes makes everything looks good. It’s like a preservative πŸ˜€ Your doggies are cute & calm. i can never take a picture of my dog sitting still & i have given up taking her picture ever since πŸ˜€ Carol looks very mature & beautiful. i love her hair color, its a bit reddish. Is that her real hair color? i love the blazer on her, perfect. Is that your Calvin Klien blazer from your Saturday post? i am deeply in love with it! Yum yum sno cone! Love it! Anyways, nice post & i really enjoy reading it. Take care.

    I’m not a huge fan of the 80’s either, but I like what you did with the dress…very you!
    Your dogs are darling.
    I’ve bought 4 bras for the Mara Hoffman dress…hopefully one of them will work!

    I love how you elongated the sleeve by wearing layers, the jeans is also a perfect casual touch.
    I don’t think you should toss it by any means. This is probably one of my favorite outfits I have seen on your blog, & I really feel this coordination was flawless.
    I’m 24 & you make ME feel terrible (in the most positive manner).

    Loving the 80’s dress, you can pull it off without trying to look 25. It sounds like you had an amazing weekend.

  • dreamsequins
    July 21, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    The vintage sequin dress as top is amazing. And yes, Givenchys elevate any look… I’m lusting after the bling now. But worn kind of slouchy; cuffed jeans are a good pairing.

  • Style Odyssey

    i’ve done hot yoga. brutal for sure, at first…then your body somehow adjusts to the torture!
    that sequin dress…WOW. i think it IS for you. looks smashing with the distressed jeans and givenchy boots.
    lovely pic of carol looking so very pretty…
    the doggies looks so sweet together!
    i love the last look- so cute and youthful, yet looks age-appropriate on you (hey, i’d wear it, and i’m in my 40s also!)

    July 21, 2009 at 4:12 pm

    That dress is AMAZING. Everything looks good on you and your lovely daughters. Keep the dress, if not, I’ll take it! πŸ™‚

    omg. that is such an amazing dress!! i love how you styled it too, i would have never considered pairing it with simple tees and jeans but it works!! and those Givenchy’s do make everything better πŸ˜‰

    Looking at those Margielas makes me so sad…I had the same pair, and wore them so much that leather between the heel and toe part almost completely broke down. Sadly I think they’re beyond repair, but they were the most comfortable MMM’s I’ve ever owned. Sigh.
