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.
