Pretty Woman

Music Playlist at MixPod.com

Ok, this post is not as egotistical as it seems. I promise. But this outfit reminded me of/made me feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, minus the prostitute part. It reminded me of the part where she goes to the derby and she has that fantastic hat. I. Love. That. Movie. "This ain't a buffet, Kit." Another side note about the song (ha, get it? note and song? well I thought it was cute) is that, have you ever noticed that when this song comes on, no matter who you are, who you are with, how old you are or what music you listen to, no matter whether you can only whistle the tune or know the words by heart, everyone always remembers/at the very least mumbles to the part that of the song that goes "MERCY!". Lol. Nothing like starting off with senseless comical banter.

I'm a cheater. I admit it. This is actually what I wore for Easter Sunday. For several weeks now I have been on a stripe-ed binge. Give 'em to me horizontally, vertically, diagonal or otherwise. Wide or skinny, one color or several, any way you slice it, I'm loving stripes.

When I saw this 70's navy and cream, cap sleeved, cowl necked dress on Robin's (my favorite consignment store owner) website, I called her immediately and asked her to hold it for me. It was one of those purchases that I felt I didn't even need to try on. It was love at first sight.

These gloves are amazing as well. The crochet is amazing and feels so old worldly. They have a small pearl fastening on the inside cuffs. They were one of those buys where I knew I wouldn't pull them out except for special, rare occasions. You can almost feel, smell and sense the history of them. The seem so fragile, yet have withstood so much wear. I wonder what other special occasions these gloves have been invited to?
