bon vivant

I'm pretty sure luggage shouldn't make me cry and want to have its babies.

And then there's this fiasco:

jocelyn dress

And this:
merida pencil skirt

And these:

lace melange top

honore buttondown

roselle pullover

beaded pointelle cardigan

I mean really, anthropologie. What gives you the right?

20 Years Ago Tonight...

I was settling down to watch the premiere of a brand new show:

The X-Files 
Pilot 1x01

I don't think I could begin to quantify the hours of enjoyment and escape these two have given me over the past two decades.

Thanks, Mulder and Scully.

Now I want to go to the flea market and play art detective.

SMILE! It's Saturday!
