Homeward Bound

I'm super excited for right now I am flying back home for fall break. Home sweet home. I cannot wait to see my friends, parents, and dance teachers... and go to target (I don't have a car here in college and although I am walking distance from Urban Outfitters and American Apparel, I still miss my Target). I might blog while I'm at home, I might not - I don't know, its sort of like a vacation to me. But here is the weeks playlist - a perfect list for the short flight home:

1. Home - Leona Naess
2. The Long Way Home - Norah Jones

4. Homebird - Foy Vance

The Lunch Bunch

Imagine you a New York socialite in the olden, vintage glamorous days meeting your best friends out for your usual Friday lunch... that's exactly that Luella Bartley was picturing when creating her Luella SS09 collection. The netted hair pieces, pearls, ruffles - all in petit fours frosting colors are simply delicious and definitely is something I want to "lunch" in. Though the colors are bright, they don't come off as comical in any way. I think these clothes would taste good with some mimosas, french macaroons, some appropriate colored cookies from Eleni's bakery in NYC, and a cake I made a while back that is drenched in pearls...
