this shop is amazing.
not only does it glance into the future into my future* kid's wardrobe (who's surprised she'll sport green shoes, wear fantastic rompers and have exquisite swimsuit taste? or that his style icons will be gene kelly and richie tenenbaum? i'm not.) ...
... it also knows exactly what they'll look like: him (if it's a him) and her (if it's a her).
flora and henri, won't you sponsor my future kid? or my future home? or maybe just me, for now? just let me know.
*very, very distant future. promise this isn't any announcement of sorts.

it's my favorite time of year—gap's give & get days. today through sunday, get 30 percent off at gap, banana republic and old navy... AND five percent of what you spend goes to a nonprofit. you can pick your own, or if you'd like to support WWF, like me, here you go (just print it out and take it with you).
happy shopping, friends!
p.s. extra points to who can tell me where to find that hat? i don't see it available at gap... and i want the green.

i really hope you took part in last's week fun with fancy french cologne because, if you did (and i know you did. right?), this pretty polkadot sundress is available to you at 40 percent off. since the price was just right before ($60), you see what a good deal this is.
let's just hope you took part... if not, sign up for the shop's future tuesday treasure alerts. really. this time, i really mean it.
big thanks to greedy girl sponsor fancy french cologne for letting us play a part in this week's tuesday treasure!

i'm excited to team up with my latest sponsor, fancy french cologne, for a little fun. if you're not familiar with the san francisco-based shop, they carry everything from plenty by tracy reese and bb dakota to more independent labels like emorie tokyo and funktional (a greedy girl favorite), as well as accessories (my eye is on this).
every tuesday, they offer their e-mail subscribers a special something in the form of a great discount on a single great item.
how do you like the looks above? wouldn't you love to pick one up for cheap? this is where we come in. i picked a few of my favorites:
1. pull shapes triangle top by tulle, $48
2. tuxy tank tlh by hype, $58
3. dottie dress by collective concepts, $62
4. cream dip black bodice dress by plenty by tracy reese, $208
now you help narrow it down. pick which item you'd like to see featured as a future tuesday treasure. send the fancy french cologne ladies a note mentioning the item you love. leave your e-mail, and you'll be signed up for their e-mails, which will make you exclusively privy to the lowdown on future tuesday treasure discounts.
1. choose a favorite for the shop's 'tuesday treasure': 1, 2, 3 or 4.
2. using the shop's contact form, tell them which look you love. remember to leave your e-mail.
3. let me know what your favorite is... i'm curious to know, too. (note: this is optional—it will NOT count as your vote).
you've got through sunday to cast your vote. choose wisely! and let me know if you have any questions!
merci to you, and merci to fancy french cologne for letting us have a little fun!

this week, i can't focus on just one getaway. my mind is brimming with excitement for a few trips that hopefully will pan out in the next few months. so, i leave it to you guys this week.
where does this outfit make you want to be? it's a pretty simple one... maybe even one perfect for a weekend at home.
need a little inspiration? check out my new blog obsession, fake travel. she takes herself on virtual trips around the world, thanks to google maps. italy looks nice right about now.
have a nice weekend, y'all.

i wouldn't mind having a few of these. and, i also love the art nouveau belt/buckle that transforms them into belts.
p.s. killing myself over not discovering this 2011 planner earlier. not that i really needed to drop 75 bucks on a planner...
good night gilda is an l.a.-based line of "high-end lingerie for busty gals." ... a product line catering specifically to buxom women everywhere who have a personality and want to buy well-designed, high-end lingerie that has a personality too.
i like that. almost as much as that bullet bra-esque stitching up there.
any other full-bosomed ladies out there with great bra suggestions? my favorites are freya, felina and le mystere.
p.s. is this girl channeling kathleen in the hair department, or what?
