Its like you've never heard of smiling with your eyes??

shopping: working 30 seconds away from a downtown shopping center can be the best of times and the worst of times. within the last 3 days i've managed to pick up some killer items.One being this dress [above]i've been drooling over in magazines and blogs. Stopped by White House Black Market and saw that they recently got one shipped in. Granted it was a size larger, i tried it on anyways. My boobs did not fit in it whatsoever, but i'm getting that sucker taken in and rocking it to SOMETHING!
And then this summer work dress from J.Crew. I was going to come back and wait for it to be on sale, but I figured they wouldn't have my size (the karma of being frugal)

The other buys were impulse two H&M dresses. And it even included a set of leggings. I know, I'm just as shocked as you are! I've never worn leggings before. I didn't think I was hip enough for them with a shirt-dress, but we shall see.

I do's: i received this pretty little card in the mail. it was blank inside so i dont know who its for, but my answer is YES! just kidding. its for L's upcoming nuptials with such a sweet note inside and I couldn't be more excited! Plus E's wedding (and events leading up to it) is right around the corner in June and the very pretty dress zips all the way up! Which only means I have to tone up the arms and lose some strapless dress back fat = impossible unless you lose regular weight.. blerg

weather: the winter funk is starting to disappear! I almost want to start blogging regularly again.. but baby steps. While there is no snow storm in sight, Boston always has a way of surprising you like that.


work: busy busy busy and I'm heading out to Toronto next week for business. and i'm excited about the sweet hotel i'm staying at right near the water. Looking forward to exploring the city! I've been there before for a long weekend during college. Hope they don't plan on getting any snow.

What are you smiling about these days???

I bought two long dresses at Old Navy the other day and was 1. so excited to see them back in fashion and 2. almost having a nervous breakdown with excitement about summer.

I love the black dress, and I love H & M. So fun.

Glad to hear the weather is improving. It's really nice out here, but the allergies that come with Spring are distracting from how nice it is :-/

Love the dresses!

B makes fun of me for watching ANTM and always tells me I'm not "smiling with my eyes." Asshat. Tyra is a crazy bitch, but she sure is entertaining.
