Magic Show

Fancy meeting you here, friends. I’ve actually forgotten what day it is and was excited to know that it’s just Wednesday. Technically that’s what is supposed to happen in Vegas (I’m here for the Magic tradeshow — for clothing for the new shop, not magic supplies for my new magic shop. Although that might be cooler.) I wore this dress a few weekends back when B and I were double dating but it has quickly become one of my favorites, so I packed it to wear this week while I’m here. I feel fancy without any effort at all — that’s when you know it’s a good black dress. Plus I feel like the rest of you can kind of look like a hot mess when you have a pretty dress on. Avert your eyes to the dress, people, that’s the rule by the end of a Vegas trip. Big sunglasses too. You see the bags under my eyes, now you don’t. See? Magic.

    Love the bag! The "similar crossbody" option leads to the sunnies, as does the sunnies link. Where can I find a similar one?

    Okay, by far the CUTEST PURSE you own. Reminds me of the purse AH carried around in breakfast at tiffany, 1963. The contrast with the navy is divine. My mom is hooked on your blog. She shops more then ever now, you are her inspiration.
