Just a quick little outfit post to break the radio silence. I had a busy weekend with the Coach Holiday Blogger Campaign party, working until my fingernails break and spending time with Bobby on his only day off in two weeks.

Huge thank you to all of you who came out to support me and my awesome peers. I loved meeting you all and I hope you had a great time! I expect to see videos of everyone’s flipbooks. Holly and the lovely ladies of Trois Femmes posted theirs – check them out!

p.s. Last chance to help my reader Aly win! Please vote for her so she can buy her students new books! Vote for Meadowlands!

    It must have been so crazy! πŸ™‚

    Anyhow, I've decided that you are going to do a movie night and watch the Time Traveler's Wife.

    Without even touching or looking at a sewing machine.

    That red coat – GASP!

  13. evie says: November 15, 20108:38 am

    I think this is one of my all time favorite outfits of yours. The dress is so gorgeous – very luxe but totally works for the day. That velvet coat is a magic thrifted find, so unique and special.
    I read so many blogs but yours is a breath of fresh air amongst the skinny jeans. You dress so femininely yet totally youthfully, fashionably and contemporarily. I find it really inspiring.
    I hope I haven't embarrassed you. I'll stop gushing now!

    I LOVE the blues! Navy blue has been my go-to colour for a while, in place of black..
