Fluxus Sweater, Kimchi Blue Dress, Wren & Anthropologie Necklaces, Vintage Belt, Coach Clutch, Alberta Ferretti Sandals
I might have jumped the gun by wearing this gauzy dress at the first signs of sun this weekend. Though the air was amazingly clean after all of the rain (a rarity in L.A.), it was still brisk enough to have worn a down jacket and been perfectly comfortable.
On another note, I was shocked to find out that I am nominated for the 2010 Bloggies as a finalist for the top fashion blog of the year! I’m really humbled to be in the same company as these blogs (um, The Sartorialist and The Cut, are you serious?) but I would absolutely love your support.

Since the past few days have been dark and stormy, I feel like I’ve somehow experienced my first harsh winter. I know that throwing on my Hunter boots doesn’t exactly classify as arctic conditions, but nonetheless, I’ve been having a bit of trouble coping. You can only have soup for lunch so many times and even the concept of curling up to watch movies has become tiresome. For those of you that actually experience really cold temperatures for months at a time, what are your tips/tricks for not going stir crazy? Now if you’ll excuse me, my hot and sour soup should be arriving in moments and I’ve got a movie to finish.

Kettle Black Shirt Dress Planet Blue), Vintage Aviators, Express Belt, Hue Tights, Foley + Corinna, Jeffrey Campbell Platforms
I have a mild obsession with shirt dresses. Unfortunately, most of them make me look preggers or elicit awkward looks from people who think I forgot my bottoms. This Kettle Black number not only cinches in just the right amount at the waist, but the little ruffles along the front ensure that nobody will mistake it for something I stole from my boyfriend. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (exhibits A & B).

When I was younger, I thought there were few culinary combinations as perfect as those in a chicken pot pie. With its flaky crust and creamy filling of vegetables and meat, it really is the ultimate comfort food. Normally I’d just pop into the nearest KFC, but after seeing Food, Inc. last month, I vowed not to eat from chains that support the inhumane treatment of animals. So, in a torrential downpour, I went out to grab ingredients and whipped up my own batch (thanks to this recipe) of individual-sized chicken pot pies, followed by homemade chocolate chip cookies and Beatles rock band.
