I know that you know that I am a big fan of the irreverantly chic Kristopher Dukes. She even makes ME blush sometimes and that, my friends, is a feat. I enjoy her posts (particularly since we're about to trade places in Mex!) but today was the best I remember it being. Short but well said and I just wanted to share. And above is the dress that inspired it.
In other news, I've come across Refinery 29 via Who What Wear Daily (found via Em, Publicist Extraordinaire). This may be one of my new daily stops. Above are designs from featured Kentucky girl, Brandy Lunsford, for her line Harlan Bel.

And they appear to be rocking at all of the above. I particularly enjoyed this. I too can enjoy a good croissant with butter & raspberry preserves, Mr. Bruni.
Second City Style brings me looks for the weather and all involve hats. Big big fan. I will be going with #5 or #6. Although, for the fash cash, that LaRedoute coat(above) could get some mileage. And speaking of LaRedoute, that may need to be a whole other post. Just nosing around and WOW.
