The Fashion Gods Do Exist!

And here's how I know:

My best friend since second grade, the one I married (well, I didn't, like, marry her...god I hate explaining this) just a month ago, moved to LA on Saturday to go to grad school. Predictably, I've been in the throes of depression ever since, self-medicating with Fruity Pebbles and muttering, "Why? Whyyyyy??" over and over again.

On Sunday, I decided a better cure for BFF withdrawal would be some good ol' fashioned consumerism, so I headed to the last day of the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale. I was looking for a comfortable, versatile silk minidress that I could wear year-round, and sweet mother of Jesus did I hit the jackpot: a fab silk French Connection dress I had been eyeing online for, oh, I don't know, ETERNITY, in stock, in my size, and on sale for 99 bucks.

A bit more than I'm used to spending, yes, but a small price to pay to bring a little happiness (and finger guns) back into my life:

Dress: French Connection Satin Shift Minidress
Necklace: Vintage belt (many antique stores sell amazing chain belts from the 70's for just a few bucks, and they make pretty badass necklaces)

Best Tights Ever: Nylon/Lycra Microfiber in Violet from We Love Colors (Buy a pair. now.)
Gold Heels: Seychelles (Best worn in the forest, for sure)

I am *so* getting fun colored tights when it's not, you know, 90 degrees out.

And you look so fabulous, it makes my teeth hurt.

Oh Snap! I ordered the same dress last week and it just came today! I'm scared to wear it out in 100 degree weather. Sweat stains never equate fabness!

Sorry I can't really say how beautiful the dress is because I am distracted by your GORGEOUS mane of FABULOUS hair! (Me = Jealous)
