Sorry for taking a break from the blog - I made the decision to keep myself away from the internet for Memorial Day weekend. Has anyone purchased anything from Net-a-Porter's annual sale? I ordered a cropped Phillip Lim sweater I've been eyeing for quite some time. Today, I am wearing a 3/4 inch sleeve striped dress that falls at the knee. I already know that it will be difficult for me not to wear it every day, because it fits perfectly, the material breathes, and it looks so easy and chic. The more I grow in age, the more I realize the true benefits of the adage 'less is more' - Having less things and instead, accumulating things that are of the best quality and representative of your style, really makes for a better quality of life.
PS. I love the look Hanneli debuted on her blog today. I do urge you to check it out.

I loved Kirsten Dunst's gown as much as Milla's shown here. However, I feel Milla's hair and make up lifted the Prada dress, whereas Kirsten's beauty-look did the opposite for her Chanel couture gown. So I'll have to give my kudos to Milla Jovovich.

Even though I assured myself that I wasn't going to buy a pair of new wedges this summer, I succumbed. My mind got carried away thinking about all the upcoming hot and sticky days where I'd end up cursing at the sky for not buying a comfortable shoe to walk around the city, that would also work on weekends outside the city - a no fuss shoe.
I experienced difficulty finding a pair of wedges that fit my personal style for the low budget price I was after. Have you noticed that so many shoes these days are too ornate? I need my ornate shoes and then I need my basic shoes. Major shoe chains tend to think that if they add a buckle, a flower, or a cut-out here or there or everywhere, that will give the shoe high-fashion appeal. But it doesn't look good at all. When I want high fashion I buy high fashion. When I need a basic shoe, I don't want a sorry attempt at a designer's creation - no knock-offs!
I found the best quality I could for under 200 dollars without all those heinous bells and whistles. They are simple and made in Italy. Now I just hope they fit.
PS. How gorgeous are the teacup and saucers above? They were featured yesterday on Vogue and are available for pre-order at wedgwood.com
