Friday Frocks: Bring Sexy Back.

By |January 11th, 2013|Friday Frocks|

justin timberlake 2013In case you missed it, yesterday, ol’ Justin Timberlake very slyly announced his return to music.  The internet went crazy… ’cause while we enjoyed you on the silver screen, JT, we missed you on the radio.  So, let’s take our d out of the box and get back in the booth.  Remember this plea to the pop star?

A new album is near and in preparation of “bringing sexy back,” I’ve compiled a collection of dresses that do just that.  Sure, I like JT just fine, but I really just wanted an excuse to showcase spine friendly frocks.  The vertebrae is the new decollete and these little numbers would be just perfect for shimmying to Timberlake’s new tunes.

Setting the Mood: Jonesing for January

By |January 7th, 2013|Setting the Mood|

january snowFor some of you, the party is over.  For others (ahem, yours truly) the party is just beginning… and you’re obviously invited.  But in case you can’t make it, I understand that January can be a bit bleak, what with the blizzards and below freezing temperatures.  It might be quite tempting to barricade yourself inside until the nightmare that is Valentine’s Day passes.  In the off chance that you’re looking to be a functioning part of society and perhaps secure a date for V-day, it might be necessary to self medicate in the form of shiny accessories, a heavenly scent, and the perfect shade of red lipstick.  Hey, just because I have plans to drown in a pint of Haagen Dazs with How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days’ credits rolling doesn’t mean you have to.

We all have a go to LBD, but have you ever thought about swapping it out for a LND (little navy dress)?  The ladies of the Navy (or the WAVES) certainly do look snazzy in the crisp color.
