Checking out The Outfit of the Day's post about her latest wishes from the J.Crew Collection, I spied the Blush Tweed Pencil Skirt - & hello! - didn't realize it was Collection until now. I fell in love with this skirt from the time it first came out and didn't hesitate to buy it the first week. I'm happy I did. I loved it before I knew it was Collection and I love it still. I just can't wear it all the time because it's one of those pieces people recognize right away... as in, Hey, you're wearing that skirt again... Oh well, gorgeous skirts are made for multiple wears. Especially soft tweed ones. &

Oh, yes, ladies. The Bug Pin.
I was never an anti-fan of the bug pin. I know there were many, many, many mixed emotions about the bug pin. From absolute despisal to downright loathing. But for me, I thought it was a cute little guy. Definitely not worth the fanfare J.Crew made up for it (couture stitching, or whatever? I think not). But for a little pin, I've always thought it adorable.
Heading to a ball tonight. A ball! & getting all dressed up to hit the town. I'll take tons of pictures and post the beautiful dresses I see. I'll be wearing a black formal BCBG dress and black BCBG sandals and tons of pearls. I just watched that episode of Gossip Girls last night where Chuck opens his SpeakEasy and everyone wears all those gorgeous 1920's outfits and it's sort of inspired me to put together something similar. Will keep you posted soon!
