Funky Little Shack

Music Playlist at

Today Daryl was whistling, singing and blaring Love Shack all day.  Needless to say, this song was stuck in my head all day.

So, mid-day, I turned to Sally, the new paralegal, and told her "man is there a more annoying song to be stuck in your head?"  She turns to me and said, "I don't think I know that song."  Me=blank expression of disbelief.

Me-"Surely you have heard this song.  Anyone who has been to a wedding since 1984 has heard this song." I Google that bad boy, turn it up, start singing it word for word.  She stares blankly.  Sally-"Um, nope.  Never heard it."

I'm sorry, are you a unicorn?  WHO HAS NEVER HEARD LOVE SHACK BEFORE??????  

Anyway, that was how I spent the better part of my morning, in amazement and on a quest to introduce Sally to Love Shack.

I tried to do this french braid headband thing with my hair today.  It kind of worked.  But my flat iron was not cooperating.  So I had these strange waves all day, but maybe it will be better next time. 

Also, I have determined this will be my favorite dress to remix for fall.  I've worn it here before (and here).  It was one of those dresses that I bought because of its rich color and vintage 70's fabric, but I honestly didn't see myself wearing it much.  Such a fool I was!  

So, the lesson learned today, ladies, is that you are never too young to teach an older paralegal new tricks.  Seriously, I don't know that I will ever recover from this travesty.

  1. Love this outfit! The colors are so perfect for fall, and you look really great.

  2. I don't know which song is more awesome - Love Shack or Groove is in the Heart by Deeelite. Ah, 90s funk.

    BTW, brooch - awesome.

  3. Oooooooooh--that's a toss up. I feel like you and I would throw one epic dance party together Lisa. Thanks for your comment!

  4. Lovely dress and great color on you!


  5. I can easily see this dress being the centerpiece of so many great fall looks - the color is just so perfect!

    and really, that is one song you do not want stuck in your head!

  6. Thanks for your lovely comment, You look so beautiful that dress is amazing!

  7. WOW,this color is great on you!!!Love the dress and the entire look: Fall's screaming!

  8. Hahah I'm surprised too. Who doesn't know the loveshack? Even I'm Asian and I know the loveshack. Oh well, you can teach an old dog new tricks, err new songs, errr old songs? Lol in any case, you've done your bit for the world today with the miseducation of 80's music.

    Lots of love from Sydney,

  14. You're going to have so much fun styling this dress come fall! Love how you layered it with the oxford and the brooch is the perfect touch of dazzle. I'm shocked your coworker had never heard Love Shack before. I grew up dancing around the kitchen with my dad to this whole B52's album. Glad you showed her what she was missing!

  15. Are you a unicorn?? Ha ha, she very well might be, we all know Love Shack. I love this pumpkin dress for fall, it's such a lovely color and silhouette on you. Those boots and the pin are such great choices for it!

  16. Totally! Sorry to play it on here, but I felt everyone could share my pain (or joy if the mood strikes). Thanks Lyddie!

  17. Thank you Federica! I am almost excited enough about fall to scream it to the rooftops.

  18. LOL thank you Sydney! I am glad to know that I have played my part.

  19. Right?!?!?! Honestly, it would be hard not to at least continue humming to Billy Joel. It just can't be avoided.

  20. Right?!?!?! Thank you Caitlin! I really appreciate your sweet comment!

  21. LOL thanks Cara. You know you love it too! I appreciate your comment!
