I am leaving tomorrow for Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. I will not be using my laptop during the trip, so there will be no blog posts for awhile. I'll be back next Tuesday.

Au revoir....

Falling in love with dresses

I'm back! And it's summertime! I have been eager to do a post on the dresses I found at Betsey Johnson. Some of her latest concoctions are absolutely delicious(I hope that didn't sound too cheesy). The textures and colors remind me very much of those seen in the Marie Antoinette movie. Bright pastels and ruffles make these the perfect party and/or cocktail dresses. Evening Aphrodite Strapless Ruffle Dress, $400

Evening Cafe de Paris dress, $425

Evening Flora Strapless Dress, $425

Evening Tea Party Dress, $365

Evening Isadora Strapless Ruffle Dress, $410

Babydoll Battenburg Dress, $320
This one isn't quite as dressy as the others, but the color, ribbon and lacy look definitely had me sold!

These dresses look good enough to eat! Don't they make you want to have a garden tea party or perhaps stroll in the gardens of Le Petit Trianon? I know Betsey Johnson is known for her flirty and essentially girly styles in her designs, and I wonder if she was inspired by Marie Antoinette when designing these??

BlogCatalog Community Fundraising Event Challenge for Public Schools

This was supposed to be posted on Monday, May 28th, but I forgot...Here it is anyway:

Let's Prove that a LARGE Group of Bloggers Can Come together For a Lot of Good!
The purpose of the BlogCatalog Community Fundraising Event is to come together and raise money for our public schools. We have set the goal to $25,000. Hopefully we can blow this goal away and raise far more money. If we do we will have set a precedent that will enable our community to do a bunch of good for other causes in the future. is a website that is "a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack."

Beginning the week of May 28th, this fund raising event is to raise money for schools in New Orleans and elsewhere lacking books, computers, and other needed supplies since Hurricane Katrina.
Please click on the link below for more information on how you can become part of the challenge and donate! Remember-every little bit helps!


Has it really been almost a month since my last post?? I cannot apologize enough. I have many ideas to put on here. As soon as this week's testing is over I will be free! =)
