Fun Fact: I HATE grocery shopping.  I despise going.  When I lived in New York, I used this awesome thing called  You go online, order, and voila! Your groceries are delivered to your door in an hour.  (You’re welcome, New Yorkers).  Sadly, the grocery store is a necessary evil in most other cities, so I must trick myself into making it fun.  This week, I played a little game of dress up. Channeling my inner “housewife,” I shimmied up and down the aisles crossing things off my list.

Fun Fact #2: This dress is a vintage (or just used) dress from my mom.  The first time I wore it, I wasn’t aware how sheer it was.  As I walked through the streets of Manhattan, I thought I was pretty darn sexy seeing as I was getting lots of looks (both male and female). It wasn’t until I passed by an especially reflective window that I realized you could see all my bits and pieces.  Oops!  Luckily, I was still working in the buying office at Bendels and had some samples behind my desk to remedy my accidental peep show.

Fun Fact #3: The tiny Dooney & Bourke bag was a bag my mom got me when I was a little girl so that I could match her.  I only brought it out of the archives about a year ago and I love it, not only because it’s tiny, but because of the special sentimental value (not going to lie… wouldn’t carry a Dooney otherwise).
