anyone need a little black dress?

i have several weddings, bridal showers, and special events that i will be attending this summer and all of them are either semi-formal or very formal events. i'm actually very excited because i just love getting dressed up and feeling pretty. so during any free time that i can spare, i'm usually browsing the net for dresses. there are a ton of pretty dresses out there, but i'm a gradstudent, so i'm definitely shopping on a tight budget. i'm looking for dresses with a bit more color, but a girl can never go wrong with a little black dress...specially a lbj with a classic cut...

look what i've found:

nordstrom - $134.00

target - on sale for $40
JcPenny - on sale for $30

same basic dress, huh? and it's so easy to dress up or down. plus, no one will ever know that you spent under $50 for such a classic, flirty dress. love finds like this.

i love going to the movies!

i saw the new indiana jones movie last night. i liked it. i was a bit worried harrison ford was going to try to act younger than his age...he didn't. he definitely shows his age. i won't give any of the plot away, but it's very indiana jones-y...some action, some romance, some bad guys...a fun movie experience. but i'm the type of person who continues to think about a movie for days and now, after some thinking, i have few questions and thoughts:
  1. why do most "bad guys" in a movie have an accent? it's usually russian, arabic, or brooklyn/italian (think mob movies), and frankly it's getting old. and we wonder where stereotypes come from.
  2. i love the 1950s. everything seems so much simpler...and cleaner. also, i've always secretly wanted to wear one of those pointy bras from that era.
  3. i don't think i've ever met a real-life anthropologist in my life. i've seen them on the discovery channel and what not, but i've never actually met one. do people still go into that profession? i know people who studied anthropology in undergrad, but now they don't do anything relevant with their degree.
  4. i understand steven spielberg is great at what he does, but i sometimes feel like he is the equivalent to starbucks. he's every where. he seems to direct, or co-direct, everything...a monopoly of some sort. let's give some fresh-face director a chance to shine.

anyway, it was a good movie. i love movies. i especially love going to the movies at night.

pretty pink

i am absolutely in LOVE with this top. seriously, just look at it.

it's just so pretty and lady-like and sweet and darling and perfect. i don't even wear pink but i've fallen in love.

love is blind.

why are you doing this to us, H&M?

i am so excited that an H&M store is moving into the abercrombie&fitch space in the u village. some of the stores in the u village are a bit out of my price range (ie. Mercer) so i'm looking forward to actually doing some serious shopping the next time i am there. i've heard that the doors will open in spring my question is, um, when exactly is spring 2008? i'm pretty sure spring started back in march.
come on, already. you're killing me.
also, why does their website suck so bad? H&M, my darling, i just want to browse through your clothes. no, i don't want to see some 5'11 girl with perfect hair + makeup modeling one of the bikinis. and no, i don't want to dress a cyber girl with cyber-versions of your clothing line.

thank goodness i've never been a bridesmaid

this is fun to look at.
people submit pictures of their bridesmaid dresses. some good...some so, so bad.

can you imagine if your friend ever asked you to wear a metallic dress with puffy sleeves?

yummy chicken

this is so fantastic. if you love bruschetta, you will absolutely love this. it's light and so delish. perfect for the grill (or the ever handy george foreman grill).
