I am a fan of grey as a colour for Fall/Winer clothing and I love the pleated front. I also like the slit down the middle of the bust which adds a bt of 'sexy' to the dress. I would totally wear this dress in a heartbeat.
It is roomy enough to carry quite a bit but, also purse size so not overwelmingly big. The colours are MUCH brighter in real life (as in bright red/pink) and it has a cool "Marimekko" tag on it so that makes me happy. It's simply gorgeous.
The best thing? It is $10 and all proceeds go to breast cancer research so if you love Marimekko, head over to Avon.com and snap one up!
It was like being a huge, gypsy, after-wedding, party due to the music and the spirit of the crowd. Much dancing around anf clapping to the songs. So much clapping I discovered a huge, purple, bruise on the underside of my ring finger on returning home.
Bands usually don't go all out in Spokane because the town is smaller and the crowds are smaller. Gogol Bordello didn't hold back and really performed full force! Their encore was 30 minutes long because they don't like to stop playing. They mentioned they may be back in Spokane in the future and the amusing thing? They didn't play in Seattle this time at all.
I could have gone to the afterparty but wasn't sure how to get home in the early morning hours so passed...sadly. If I had my own car I would have gone for sure.
I took a few random snapshots with my Sony Cybershot which are a tad blurry but, the whole audience was jumping up and down to the music (and there were constantly changing lights) so it was hard to get a steady shot even with that option built into the camera.
So far, in the last two years I have seen 3 bands I had on my "Must see live"" list: radiohead, Flight of the Conchords, and now, Gogol Bordello.
I would see any of them again in an instant...especially radiohead and Gogol Bordello.
If you get the chance to see Gogol Bordello, YOU MUST GO! I saw Gogol Bordello on Sunday night and......The concert KICKED ALL SORTS OF ASS!!!!
The necklace really looks good on a living, breathing, person:
Just simple and great looking with a scoop neck or off-shoulder top.
Or maybe a shirt like this:

I love the shirt's flowy look and the off-shoulder style as well. It just looks comfortable and classy at the same time. Now that I own a great strapless bra...I am more willing to wear this sort of shirt.
It is a bit too spendy for me, at $176 but, I would so wear one like it if I found a similar style for cheaper. Even in San Diego it would be great for those early, winter, mornings at the beach or out and about before the marine layer burns off.
I love the blue and I love the side zipper. These boots would be so much fun to wear!
I may not be a big fan of a lot of the Fall fashion that is out in the stores but, I can find some items that would be fun to own. I could mix any of these fashion items into my existing clothing wardrobe to "refresh" it this Fall.
Yes, the books that True Blood (the tv show) is based off of.
I laughed a lot out loud. I got excited about, well, a lot of what went on in the books. I yelled at Sookie because she is an idiot who cannot see what is right in front of her nose.
(Sookie. Tall, blonde, viking, vampire, male. Yeah him. Stop playing like you don't like him, be upfront with your feelings, tell him how you feel because he will be beyond thrilled, and stop torturing the man. Seriously.)
I have decided I liked the character of Eric much more after reading the books. I have read all the books except for book 9, which I am on the verge of buying because I have to see what happens!
Now, I need to re-read them slower. I need something to do between True Blood seasons and this works.
I like the colour of the leather and the chains dangling...as well as the studding. It just looks like something that would be worn in the 4th century or around that time. I would wear it today with just the right outfit.
The boots just make me want to take up sword fighting, take a sailing ship to and pillage a village, or kick some invader's ass! I love them and the lacing is just so cool to look at.
Yes, I think the whole Celtic/Norse (and other early historical times) inspired, items are going to start invading the fashion world in the next few months. It's just a deep feeling I have. Let us see if I am right.
