Even if I adore some of its part-time inahabitants, I don't know if I could jive there. Even the people living there admit that the blondes, boobs and sunburns are stereotypes with a very real population behind them. But I've never been and am thus in no position to judge.
How odd that it would be a spread in February's Lucky that gave me pause in LA's favor. These were their picks to represent that great state's resident socialite. I love it all. So either I need to buy a bigger bottle of sunscreen or I'm going to be bringing some West Hollywood flavor to the Third Coast this year.
Favorite New Dress- Kelly Lane via Turtle in Boston's South End. I liked it when I saw it initially. Nice color splash, pretty pintucks and work/play appropriate. The recycled cotton was a very green bonus wrapped in bright coral clothing. In other news...I'm a little obsessed with both Kelly Lane AND Turtle now. See you there again in May.
Keeping the Dream Alive- You would not THINK that a white leather biker jacket would be such a practical purchase. I certainly didn't. Which is why I couldn't figure out why I was obsessing over it 6 weeks after I half-jokingly tried it on with P. I went back. I tried it again. I went for it.
My splurge, still at less than a fifth (ha) of any of the jackets Lucky was featuring! Thanks Clothesminded and...JLO??? Wore it every day of my Boston trip (above with Brother) and every day it's been warm enough in Chicago since then. I love crisp. I love the unexpected. I love a little edge and I love a little polish. Well when you put it that way...I still don't rock it as hard as the girl in that Journey video but I'm getting to be okay with it. I'm going to go tease my hair some more.
