afternoon tea

I was invited to afternoon tea -- my first since moving to D.C. This means I am making friends here plus it means a morning of stressing on what to wear. After ripping through my closet I made a decision. Nothing too TOO fancy, but still appropriate.

Grey sheath dress thrifted.
White lace slip thrifted.
Purse special discount from the owner of Porch in Boston.
Shoes Steve Madden.
Flower pin originally a bridesmaid hairpiece from a friend's wedding this summer.
Orange cape thrifted (below).

And a little present (a magnet set upcycled from a silk scarf) for the wonderful hostess:

There are more than a few books I'd love to add to my collection from Chronicle:

one of my favorite shirts

While cleaning up in preparation for the big move I came across one of my favorite shirts. I thought I'd share it with you. It's a little bit of happiness captured on a tiny canvas of cotton and it makes me smile every time I wear it. Honestly who doesn't love a lobster that knits?

Dressing Up the New Gadget

D.J. and I recently got iPhones and I feel like we're both attached at hip to them. I think it's a normal obsession, but I just stumbled upon an amazing collection of wallpaper to dress up my new gadget. It's the Desktop Wallpaper Project via Kitsune Noir.

This is my new iPhone wallpaper and I'm positive I'll change it again in a few days:

How many times can you change the wallpaper without wondering you have an unhealthy obsession?
