So I really like when people take my advice. And I really like it when they take my fashion advice. So imagine my delight when I realized that someone had actually listened to me and had gone out and purchased the GLITTER EYELINER I recommended. Ahhh sweet victory. And doesn't she look pretty? We talked for several minutes about how for some reason putting on the glitter instantly makes us feel awesome and full of confidence. Yes I know that sounds ridiculous but it is true. And as a bonus to the awesome psychological pick-me-up you also look oh so pretty. Two Birds. One Stone. The End. 

Kyle was not aware his picture was being taken, I think in all fairness that needs to be said. Also, I wanted to make some ridiculous joke about being a sucker for seersucker but then I realized this wasn't seersucker. Huh. Oh whatever the combo with the shirt and paisley tie is still tres fab.

So when I asked Caleb Wilson to pose for this picture he seemed very put upon. However as I was walking away from him I heard him exclaim "I finally got in!" so much for the "protest". I wish you could see more vividly the brightness of the blue, it makes such a lovely contrast with the gray of the vest.

Love and Kisses to you all. ABBS

Peggy Erland is wearing the cutest little brown shrug/jacket with that WILD animal print top. Meow Peggy I approve!

I know I have one picture. That's lame. I'm lame. So I will now fill all this empty space by talking about things I like! Hurray!

This is a jacket by Skingraft, which I love. I also love that this look is labeled Lady Scout on their website. The arm details on the jacket are so intricate, and the front color contrast gives the illusion of a more structured seaming.

A Louis Vuitton Speedy with rose graphics by artist Stephen Sprouse.

Wallpaper by Timorous Beasties, my favorite wallpaper company located in Scotland sadly.

And finally Urban Decay glitter eyeliner. I own the gold but want the teal oh so bad. It makes every day fun and special!

The hot weather always brings out the anger within me...yes I GET that is ridiculous but I have excepted that and moved on and am ok with myself as a person. The hot weather also usually means bright colors and that makes me happy, which is also something I am ok with and have reconciled within my person.

Alice Barnard is apparently also ok with bright colors. Bright color skirt, check. Bright red shoes, check. Delicate gold jewelry which I covet, check. 

Sara Cone is wearing a beautiful faux wrap dress with a brown sash and a loverly shot of color with a teal camisole. Also girlfriend is working the shades.

Happy 4th of July! I want to mention that I saw the sweetest pair of patriotic shorts yesterday but failed to take a picture of them. I am a loser. I did take the picture below shoe envy up in here.

I also on a personal style note cannot recommend highly enough the Urban Decay Glitter Eyeliner which I recently purchased at Sephora. I bought the kind of antique gold color but it comes in many beauteous shades, including teal, which I covet greatly.

Also Tim Gunn has a new book coming out in September called Gunn's Golden Rules...very excited, I'm totally putting it on my Amazon wishlist!

Love, ABBS
