Carol’s Been Busy……

Carol came home from school early yesterday and baked two beautiful three layer cakes.  They were so yummy…..Honestly, she is going to have to find a lower calorie hobby.

Such pretty spring colors.  She made homemade buttercream frosting too….

Carol also recently attended her spring dance and wore this great Betsey Johnson dress.  Carol loves Betsey Johnson and it looks so good on her….

I adore this dress!  So Carol…It's really great that Jane and Carol have their own style.  Even with Jane's blog becoming so popular, Carol strives very hard to have her own look which is so different from Jane's.

Betsey shoes too…

So cute!  Tomorrow is finally the last day of school….I can hardly wait!

Someone had asked if the GoldenGoose boots were comfy…YES!!  Amazingly so…Also, here is a great blog. I'm sure some of you have seen it.  Advanced Style.  This is a blog of street style, but only elderly people.  Trust me–a blog for any age.  I love it.  It reminds us not to ever take ourselves too seriously.

    I love Betsey Johnson! I wore her stuff to all my school dances! It looks so adorable on Carol!

    Carol is adorable. It’s wonderful that she’s not only developing her own style, but it really seems age appropriate for her, too.

    You have such beautiful girls Judy! Carol has great style too. She looks fabulous in her Betsey Johnson dress & shoes. πŸ™‚
    My son gets out of school on Friday, I too can hardly wait!

    Well, now that I’m craving some delicious cake, I’m going to focus my attention on Carol’s beautiful pics. She looks so pretty – the dress, the shoes, the handbag, the hairstyle, everything. I bet she stood out at the dance~
    Judy, it’s wonderful that you encourage both your girls to explore their styles and hobbies. I can see Carol becoming famous one day for her style and cakes perhaps? πŸ™‚ Who knows, she could become the most sought-after cake designer!

    Carol looks beautiful! Such a pretty, feminine dress, which Betsey Johnson does sooo well. I think its great that she and Jane each have their own individual style.

    Pass this onto Carol..
    My sister and I followed this tutorial but made cupcakes instead. They were a hit for her soccer banquet. Of course, Carol can use any cake recipe she’d like but just incorporate the food coloring portion to give it that rainbow effect.

    Ahh! Love love love the Advanced Style blog. Thanks for sharing! I love reading style blogs and that senior style is fantastic. I’ve always said when I’m old I will wear whatever the heck I want. Maybe I should start now!

    Carol is so beautiful!!! I love her hair and her makeup. Oh and the cake looks so yummy. I need a baking lesson from Carol. I know Loc would be so proud if I can bake πŸ™‚

    I am so glad that you posted these cute pictures of Carol! And her cakes look amazing!
    I’m glad that Carol has been able to craft her own niche and not just be “Jane’s little sister”… she has a fabulous eye with all those great spring colors!

    i just had to comment on several things….
    first, carol looks so fresh, pretty and age appropriate. and what adorable shoes!!
    and…her cakes look delectable! i might have a real calorie issue if she were my daughter baking all those goodies!
    lastly, that blog “advanced style” is a treasure. good style is NOT about age, as the blog shows. how refreshing it is to see this. i’m adding it to my blog’s list of “extremely stylish blogs”. thanks for sharing!

    oh I remember being that age and being obsessed with Betsey!! I got all of my party dresses from there too!
    Carol should seriously sell her cakes – she has such a talent for it πŸ™‚

    you’ve got two great daughters. both talented in their own respects!
    i also admire carol for having her own style. that’s great. i wish to god i cld eat those cakes. it’s like torture looking at those pics and not being able to taste them!

  • Emily Rose

    I love that carol wears betsey, and not the other way around. so many times girls wear huge betsey johnson dresses and it doesn’t look quite right, but she does it perfectly! and the colors on the cakes are very cute πŸ™‚

    She looks so pretty! the whole outfit works: the dress, shoes, bag..even her make up is appropriate! Hope you had fun Carol!!

    Wow! Carol is a stunner! Indeed her style was so different from Jane’s. Lovely! Love the dress & shoes though i feel the bag doesn’t look quite right with the outfit.. maybe could go along with Anna Sui floral bag or something else, perhaps. sorry πŸ™ just a matter of opinion. Btw, i totally adore Carol’s character, she seems to be very talented in baking, homely, humble and sweet. i hope she will have a blog of her own soon! i can’t wait! πŸ™‚

    i love seeing carol!
    although i love jane’s blog, i find carol’s style much more easier to relate to since i dont think id ever to able to realistically scale the heights of jane’s amazing style.

    Carol looks fabulous! Love the leopard bag with the feminine dress. My last experience baking a cake was when I was 16! A German Chocolate birthday cake for my mother…so since my mother’s bday was yesterday…I haven’t baked a cake in 25 years! The reason? It was 4 layers. I was done and trying to find an appropriate hiding place. As I was traisping thru the house looking for a location, I dropped the damn thing and it flew all over. I was so heartbroken and pissed off, I just scooped up what I could, chunked it back onto the cakestand and put it in the middle of the dining room table! Now I limit myself to tarts and pies…only single layers for me!

    Carol looks so amazing in the Betsey Johnson dress….sometimes I think BJ can be hard to pull off, but she does it so wonderfully!

    Please convince Carol to start a food blog with recipes and links. I am sure it would be a huge hit. Her cakes look amazing and I am dying to try (I have never previously aspired to bake/cook). I think her all Betsey J. outfit is adorable.

    Hello! Your daughter Carol is lovely and she does have her own wonderful style.
    I also wanted to thank you for writing about and linking to the Advanced Style blog, I love it. Did you see Mimi Weddell on there? Will have to look for her DVD.
    Thanks for having such a lovely blog.

    I recognize this dress! I tried it on at Betsey Johnson and the employee showed me a unique way of wearing the ribbon–I’m not sure how it works, but I thought it was a fun trick: http://tinypic.com/r/2h58y3b/5 (I know I look displeased, but was just waiting for my mom to take the picture.) Please pass to Carol if she’s ever interested in mixing that dress up a little! She looks fabulous in it.

    You have such beautiful daughters. Obviously since you are gorgeous yourself and look more like one of their sisters than their mother. It’s great to see that Carol has her own style and that she is coming into her own.
    I love Advancedstyle and have been reading it for a while now. This was my favourite lady because she reminds me of my Auntie in the Philippines
