“true friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient; it's about being there when it's not”

A vintage 1920s flapper dress that I am dying to wear to the Rehearsal Dinner (which, I know, is a year and a half away but I can sill dream, right?)

Melissa loaned me her copy and I read it on my trip home from California. I am officially OBSESSED and will probably have to devote an entire post to my favorite quotes from the book. Elizabeth Gilbert, I bow down.

J.Crew's latest stroke of genius: the Minnie Pant. This is the 'Pixie' style, a retro-chic ankle-length pant silhouette that has a fit so incredibly flattering, even on those of us who aren't exactly "pixie" sized. Because of their stretch ponte fabric, they're able to straddle the boundary of pants and leggings (and let me tell you, this is a very fine and much-debated line). I bought a pair today and was thisclose to wearing them out of the store.

Speaking of J.Crew, this is a preview of their Fall 2010 collection. Oh Jenna Lyons, can I just be you for a week, please?

San Miguel de Allende. Major swoon. My parents will be there for 4th of July to celebrate my Aunt Sydney's 50th and have invited us to come along. This is where teleportation would come in handy since airfare costs about as much as a new washing machine.

Crystal Bowersox, the most talented former subway-station-playing hippie mama, and probably the coolest contestant to ever grace the American Idol stage (yes...I do happen to have a teenage-like infatuation with AI). She is so original and refreshingly real and reminds me of some of my favorites: Tracy Chapman, Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin.
