Pleated, Polka Dot, Hi-Low Hem...

Pleats.  Polka dots.  Hi-lo hem.  Does a frock really get any better than that?  Well, it does when it cost only $15 at TJMaxx.  This lovely thing has been tucked inside my closet, begging to born.  Tomorrow it gets its wish granted.  One of my lil sisters is graduating high school (soon to become lovely undergrad!) and this sheer wonder is going to get its day in the sun.  Yay!

It looks seriously adorbs with several pairs of heels I have: navy pumps, red peep-toe pumps, and coral pumps.  ...But I don't think I'll wanna be wearing heels all day so I'm going to go with a pretty pair of sandals instead.  Maybe I'll get a little crazy and post a pic. ;)

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
