Spring 09!

Yeah! Lets start the year off right and skip the rest of winter, and head right into Spring! Who's with me??

Ok, not really, but I am so ready, I didn't buy anything this year in the winter sales, except for home stuff and a sweater...and some boots but I really needed those, the ones they replaced were 10 years old!

As I was saying...spring, anyone??? I am getting an early start on getting ready for Spring this year, every year I am really surprised when it is time to pull the old sandals out of the back of the closet, this year I am already dreaming of wearing the ones I got last year late in the season...
New Arrivals at JCrew clicky clicky to make it bigger.

Cute silk dresses at Banana Republic
Lately I really like what they got going on over at the BR. I didn't like it for years, this party season they had soo many cute silk dresses and last summer, man I am still kicking myself for not buying this, they had a solid silk tank maxi dress is great muted colors...sigh. Have you seen the newest Lucky? They have a Banana Republic item on just about every page!

Spring time at the Gap...that sweater dress is only $60!

Every season I try to get one or two really great items that will last forever (I kept those shoes for 10 years, that means I was a TEENAGER when I bought them, I am serious here, not like in some magazine where they say, oh you can keep this forever, and it is so trendy it isn't even cool anymore...ok, rant over.) Plus, I am really trying to spend less money this year.

This year what I really want is a Tucker dress, and I love that this one is on sale! Also I have a thing for maxi dresses, but usually don't like the bright, beachy prints that they come in, I prefer a sexier solid silk, and I love the ruffles, makes me feel like maybe I don't HAVE to wear a bra? (I can hear you cringing, it's ok, I am secure in my free-hanging-ness), and backless is just wonderful. Does it get as hot where you live as it does in Atlanta?
