I have a monster crush on..

6 Apr



Monique’s dresses and hand-dyed tulle skirts are playful, a little bit naughty, and a little bit french (that can’t be a coincidence). Makes me want to put this one on and prance around in a field all day.

And seriously, how hot is this little number? Dear boyfriend (or hell, dear stranger if you want to put up the cash) – pretty please? The perfect mix of naughty and nice. Ideal for sweet sinnin’.


Ally and I have been a bit MIA lately – but for incredibly good reason. More on the news later – because I’m about to meet her for dinner in Los Angeles! Whaaa?


on deals (and girls’ weekends!)

until today, the time i spent on (gilt groupe’s sleek and sexy travel site) was just for fun. i have one big trip planned this year – hawaii for new years – and i’ve accepted the fact there’s no wiggle room in the budget for another. so i’ll wander over to jetsetter a couple times a week and run my mouse over the gorgeous safaris and getaways to morocco, and it’s harmless, and dreamy.

but right now they have a monster sale on the (already pretty affordable) Ace Hotel group – New York and Palm Springs so far – and rooms are going for as little as $70 a night through June. my good friend and coworker hannah and i have decided that right around the beginning of summer we’ll probably being going nut bars (work has been hectic lately!) and we’ll absolutely deserve a nice spa weekend, no boys allowed. so we’re booking a room ($35 each, come on!), with massage and facial appointments to follow. hannah’s been to the Ace in Portland, but this will be a first for me. I’m so excited!

I imagine I’ll wear this dress the whole time:

It came in the mail yesterday, and I’m in love.
