The Wait is Over… MADMEN Season 4 Premiere TONIGHT!

25 Jul
I can hardly contain my excitement for the MADMEN season 4 premiere TONIGHT on AMC. In honor of the season premiere I wanted to share with all of you, MADMEN meets Barbie.  How I missed this when it debuted earlier this year, I have no idea.  The barbie versions of Betty, Don, Joan, and Roger look absolutely fab and right on character. Now if only I could justify spending $75 each on a Barbie Doll…

MADMEN Season 4 Premiere,  AMC, July 25th 10/9pm 

I Love Hue; Olive Chic

19 Jul
Sequin bustier cotton dress, Alice & Olivia, $495
Encore L’Amour silk-chiffon bra, Mimi Holliday by Damaris, $90
Encore L’Amour silk-chiffon thong,  
Mimi Holliday by Damaris, $60
Color me Couture, Lorac Eyeshadow Palette, $37

I’m totally loving the hue Olive right now… maybe its all the military influences seen on the Fall runways, but I simply just can’t get enough.  “I Love Hue” is a new feature you can come to expect on FWD where I will feature an outfit centered around a Hue I’m totally loving at the moment.  And since the things I love are constantly changing,  I Love Hue will be a very random feature that may happen several times a month, but at the very least, you can come to expect it once a month.

Let me know what you think.  What’s your favorite hue at the moment?

50 years, 50 Great Moments for Woman

19 Jul
In celebration of the 50 years since The Pill was introduced to woman Daily Candy and Bayer’s Celebration of Woman’s Empowerment have teamed up to celebrate Woman everywhere.  They ask the questions, “what will you do?”, “what are your dreams?” as part of a contest to help make them a reality.  Unfortunately the contest has come to an end, but I still think these are questions that we as woman should be asking ourselves everyday.   I can’t wait to see the results of the contest.  For no check on the lovely illustrated timeline of some amazing accomplishments made by woman in the past 50 years.  Above are a few of my favorite… CLICK HERE to see the rest!

Here is another oldie but goodie that I found in my pending post folder.  All images via LuLu Magazine.  I believe it was from the May/June issue.  Above are a few images from a spread inspired by Strawberry Shortcake.  These four were my favs!
Stripped tights anyone?

I wanna be… B.B. Homemaker

18 Jul
So I know I’m a tad late on letting all of you know how much I LOVE Beyonce’s new Video “Why Don’t you Love Me”, I mean lets face it, I have been a bit late on everything lately.  I could give you the same excuses.. work is crazy, yadda, yadda, yadda.  But instead of doing that I’m jsut going to stuck it up and still post all of the fabulous things I have been meaning to, those things that have been piling up in my inspiration file on my desktop in hopes that you will still love it.  I mean look at the bright side, by now you probably forgot all about this video and now its like I’m bringing it back, or so I hope.  
So back to the topic at hand. Beyonce introduces her 2nd or is it 3rd (I can’t keep up) alter ego, B.B. Homemaker in her latest video “Why Don’t You Love Me” and I must say… the song I could take it or leave it but the VIDEO I could watch over and over again.  I love the 1950’s sitcom theme complete with 50’s housewife, vintage cars, voice overs and theme music.  I simply can’t get enough.  I’m loving the look!  
 Click HERE to see the video!                                                        
It may be too early to say, but I think I may have to channel my inner B.B. Homemaker come Halloween this year.  What do you think?  I could totally pull it off right?

Sunday Morning Bloom’s: 7/18/10

18 Jul
I know its been quite some time since I have done a “Sunday Morning Bloom’s” or “Sunday Afternoons” post but I’m hoping to have them reinstated starting now. You can say this photo above inspired me to do so, which is why I’m sharing it with you today.  I’m smelling a DIY in my near future, involving hanging glass jars and single stem flowers.  Ahhh… I love Sunday’s!
