Wearing Le Petit Prince

"Goodbye," said the fox. "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."

"What is essential is invisible to the eye," the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.

-The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Designer JC de Castelbajac doesn't ever want us to forget about our childhood. I *love* these shirts he created for his SS 2011 line! I read the story The Little Prince when I was a girl, and shared it with my son when he was about 8. Castelbajac has very easily become one of my favorite designers ever, so don't be surprised if I am doing another post on him in the future!

Pretend Bangs & Plaid


I've been nervous to hold any pair of scissors lately because I'm aching for a new hairstyle, and I'm afraid I'll have one of those impulsive moments of cutting my hair all by myself. Have you ever had one of those? I've regretted it almost always, but I know I need to do something different, and SOON. So... this was my small attempt to change it up, and manipulate my hair to look as if I had bangs. (just pinned it back & put a hat on). This time of the year usually means dressing darker, but I would've looked like I was in mourning if I hadn't paired this black 50's dress with some color. Cue cute plaid blazer that has NEVER BEEN WORN since purchase over a year ago. Yes... just one of those items that sits in the back of the closet begging for some attention. "Pick me! Pick me!" so I did, and really ended up liking the result.

Sweet November

Scraping the first real frosts off of my window, raking leaves, enjoying pumpkin-spiced everything, watching movies during cozy nights IN...just a few things November has already brought about so far this year. We have 2 weeks and 4 days until Thanksgiving! I know, I can't believe it either! 3 days after that is my birthday! I think I just might do what I did last year again, because I enjoyed myself very much that day. :)

Today I listed a few of these November wardrobe-worthy items below to be included in the sale that ends tonight at the stroke of midnight! (EST) Take advantage of the discounts here!
