    I have the grey but it is very close to a blue. I think I will try it on with the shorts I have (they are closer to a pink but I think Nantucket Red is the name) and see how it looks. I have a pair of darker jeans, too, so I shall see. Thanks

    Is she heading off to LA? She can join us. All of my friends are aspiring writers and are not crazy model-types. I know no aspiring actors. None. Despite what everyone thinks LA is like. Geeks rule!

My BF says this is fine to wear with jeans but I feel odd in all denim. What should I wear it with?

    For reference:

    By the way, I got it for $30 at the outlet store. Online it is almost $100? Now I like it even more.

    ETA: Ok, technically it is not denim but it sure looks like denim.
    I see it with true black skinny jeans.

    Yes. They'll be living in Koreatown while my SIL to be is finishing at USC. I'm glad to hear about the geek contingent. When I'm at my worst east coast elitist snotty I mutter that my grandchildren will be beautiful and dumb.

    I still take my daughter shopping. It's fun. I don't pay for everything anymore. But, I do buy something special once in a while. The wedding dress shopping was so anticipated and wonderful. And, though we did find an amazing dress, I wish it could have lasted longer .

    I don't know about you but even when my daughter is being all "moooooooommmmmmmm" and treating me like a fossil, she'll still go shopping with me. She actually likes my taste. It's something.

    Yeah, writers are a cool bunch. My friends don't get caught up in the looks department because it doesn't really matter what you look like when you write. Well, obviously you can't be an sloppy ogre, but they just present themselves well, they don't go overboard. I'm the skinniest of our group and I'm not even doing anything related to movies or TV. It's really only the actors that are pressured to go crazy with it. Those and wannabe celebrities.

    When we get together, nary a word is uttered about shopping. Unless it's about buying season DVDs of certain TV shows!

    My kid is going to fit right in.

    The only DVDs of TV shows I own are Lost and Homeland. Guess I better stay put.

    Yes, she does like my taste. One of the few things that she actually appreciates me for . Not just the buying, my opinion on fashion, even when the style is not quite mine.

    We're searching for the right earrings now. And for bridesmaids gifts. Can't believe the wedding is only 7 weeks away!

    Wooo!

    Definitely make a schedule for the day and a photography shot list. Our wedding didn't follow our schedule exactly, but knowing that we'd gone through the day in our heads, lessened the stress by A LOT. And the shot list makes sure stuff keeps moving and that you don't forget to get something.

    Yes, we have to go over all of the shots we "need" with the photographer. And they want us to appoint a close friend or family member from each side to be the photographer's go to for who is who. That way the bride/bridal party/moms and dads won't have to do it. One thing I learned from my wedding 31 years ago - don't let the photographer occupy all of your time, making you wait while he looks for the relatives. It will be a long day. Daughter and bridesmaids have to be at Fiddler's Elbow at 10:00am, for hair and makeup. We are getting ready there, since the service and the reception are at the same place and they have rooms upstairs for us. The bridesmaids, groom's mom, and I have to be - hair done, makeup done, dressed, daughter hair and makeup, not dressed. By 2:00pm for "getting ready" photos. Then photos with dad seeing bride for the first time. Then at 3:00pm - first look with the groom. Then bridal party photos so that they can attend the cocktail hour and not be dealing with the bridal party photos then.

    I am wearing the Chambray shirt tonight. I have it with a white v-neck undershirt (not a deep v-neck at all, I'm not a douche) and a nice pair of darker jeans. The white undershirt sets it off enough that I don't feel like a walking denim advertisement. I left the top two buttons unbuttoned. I think this same thing would look good with a fitted undershirt and the pair of pinkish red shorts but I wouldn't button the Chambray shirt at all.

    My right shoe of these new Cole Haans probably needs a heel grip. Darned my feet being a half-size different!

    Now I'm shopping through the Nordstrom Anniversary sale online...

    Ugh, why so pretty and why so expensive?

    It's lovely.

    I think that because it's a busy print, it won't appeal to everyone; and will be around at "sale" time.
    I guess the "Kate Spade" name has something to do with the price,

    Kate Spade name does have something to do with it. But, it's not just the label. Higher end fashions are usually made with better fabric and are finished better. So, though the initial cost is higher, you will get a garment that lasts longer and looks new longer. I think that dress would look fabulous on you Anita!

    That dress is a rather simple sheath. If you sew, you could copy that for around $75, even if you went with a designer silk.
    I'd make it up in a stretch sateen, rather than silk - more comfortable, and no dry cleaning - in a fabric like this:http://www.gorgeousfabrics.com/shop/....php?pID=19101
