Ice and Ennui

Woke up to a powerful ice storm today:

schools cancelled,

grocery stores closed,

fallen tree branches,

popped electrical lines.

It’s a perfect day to don this 1970s-inspired maxi dress by Alice + Olivia (check out the detailing on the cuffs)


and mix up a gimlet or two while lounging around your boxy glass home with a look of ennui on your elegant face.

Until you find that Jacqueline Susann novel you had tucked away behind the cereal boxes.

We're having this storm too, but snow-style. And I so want to be drinking a gimlet in my boxy glass home with my look of ennui. Wondering about how we're going to get to the key party this evening. :-)

That snow that K.Line is having is on its way here, too. Sadly I'm more likely to wear this if trapped indoors for it. But I do love that dress.

K.Line, Our big holiday party (that we were invited to)was cancelled this evening--boo hoo.

Sal--You can still read Jackie Susann in your sweats! Valley of the Hoodies . . .

Ho ho. That was very sweet.

I would like to see you in that dress!! I will just have to imagine, won't I?

Well, I'm not buying it, so imagination is our best bet!
