So, in support of my case, I have decided to post a few pretty girls and a model or two, appropriately and very stylishly sporting their chucks.
Viva los chucks!

I tuned in just in time for the Foxy Shazam ticket give away and guess what?!?
on a side note: don't forget to bring in an old pair of jeans to The Gap for 30% off new denim purchase-lasts until Sunday.

I just love Benny Sings. I think I had his song "coconut" on repeat for the entire summer last year.
Speaking (or typing rather) of coconuts, I had a delicious coconut margarita yesterday at 1308 cantina-the smaller less chaotic el tiempo on montrose. I had never had one before for fear that it would be too sweet, but it wasn't. It was sooooo good. They used real coconut milk to flavor, much better than a synthetic syrup. I should have taken a photo to share! Oh well, next time.
Update: I just ran across this recipe that seems to be pretty darn close to El Tiempo's. Maybe if we all start making these at home, summer will come faster.

The Bee's Knees was a classic prohibition cocktail. Word of myth and legend is that bootleggers created this drink to hide the rank smell and taste of the "bathtub gin" that was involved. Thank the day for Tanqueray.
Here's the Bee's Knees recipe-according to me.
2oz of gin of choice
¾ oz of honey
¾ oz of fresh lemon juice
combine ingredients in shaker, add ice, & shake it up for 10 seconds. serve in chilled cocktail glasses, add a lemon wedge if you wish, & drink!

I think Houston needs one of these too, yeah?

is my bff, my hero, and my personal ray of sunshine.
She's just filled with so much peace and love-anybody that has ever met her knows this.
These days she is crazy busy traveling the world doing her pretty people thing so we don't get to see each other as much, but when we finally do get our precious one on one time...we don't miss a beat.
The other night while getting ready, my roommate Becca started banging on my door
-which at first scared the heck out of me.
was there a fire in the building? no.
waaaay to go babes!
Angie works mainly in the European market, so this surprise tabloid appearance was a special thing. Angie, just think about how many other shameful readers and bored housewives will get to see your face this week!
So, in honer of this little Loehmann's debut, I'd like to share a few more lovely photos of her lovely self...
so proud of you.
p.s. these editorial images came from a personal stash, I'll be sure to figure out sources with a.g. a.s.a.p.

-the man also responsible for giving myself (and many, many others) a more "organized shopping experience" at the daytime chic mother ship that is anthropologie.
Just wish I had my own somewhat stark/mad mod dwelling to put it in. Sigh. Someday.
