>elegance is learned, my friends…


Who else is utterly obsessed with BRAVO’s Real Housewives series? I’m in seventh heaven now that New York and Jersey are running at the same time. I can’t stop watching each episode… I’ve seen some four or five times.  One RH pet peeve: what’s the new trend with cast members releasing “club” singles? And why are they so annoyingly catchy?! Just when I got Tardy for the Party out of my head, Louann’s new “dance mix” has taken its place. 
Anyway, I digress. It’s day two of Summer Black-Out 2010! This outfit feels really feminine and classic to me. After my grayscale look yesterday, I went for bold color. I scored the Tori Richards dress at Marshall’s for $20 on the clearance rack, and the original price was $175! I love everything about it — the color, the print, the cut, and the pockets. 
Dresses are a staple for me in the summer, and Marshall’s is a great place to find high-quality designer frocks at bargain basement prices.
