Derby Update

So as you may know, the Kentucky Derby is this weekend!!! I can't believe it's here! After a lot of searching/meltdowns, I think I have decided on a dress! It's different than my original choices, but I think I am happy with this one:

I am going to wear it with nude Christian Louboutin Yo-Yos and a straw colored hat. I will post more pictures from the Derby of course on Monday.

What do you think?

Winston's Weekend

So this past weekend, we decided to take Mr. Winston for a swim in a pool. It was his first swimming experience, but since he's a lab, I had no doubt that he would be a natural. And he sure was!!

He had soo much fun! We had to drag him out of the water when it was time to go!

Loving my minnies

I ordered the Minnie Pants from J.Crew during their 20% off/free shipping promo. AND I LOVE THEM! I am so glad I ordered them, and I see why everyone else loves them. Here they are, with a Tory Burch Simone dickie:

Derby Dresses

So I got home late last night, but all my sleepiness went away when I saw a box from DVF at my door. Derby dress #2 had arrived! I took some quick pictures so I could start the decision-making process. Here they are:

The first dress is the Diane dress in a pattern called Feather Fountain. Love this print.
The second dress is the Kate Spade Connect Four dress.
I have a feeling this is going to be a toughie. I think I am leaning toward one, but I'm not 100% sure yet. ANy thoughts? I apologize for the poor quality pictures, I will try to take some better ones soon!

Random Tuesday Update

Happy Tuesday everyone (if that's possible. But hey, it's better than Monday!) So I thought I would just give an update of how everything has been going for me, so here it goes:

- One of the two Derby dresses I ordered has arrived (the Kate Spade dress). The Diane von Furstenberg dress will be on my doorstep tomorrow, so then I can make a decision! I will post pictures and updates! If I go with the DVF dress, I think I am going for the Louboutin You Yous in the camel color. Any advice on his sizing? Once I find a hat that matches, I will be all set for the Kentucky Derby! I am starting to get really excited!!! I can almost taste the mint juleps now.
- Winston update: My little guy is already 8 months old! I cannot believe it! We took him in to get fixed about a week ago, so we had to put the lampshade collar on him for a while. I felt so bad about that, but I didn't want him pulling out his stitches. Well on Saturday morning, we woke up and he had gotten sick during the night! I thought he had chewed on and swallowed part of his collar (which he had, so I took it off). He was sick most of the day on Saturday. Poor baby! On Sunday, I made him some rice, which is supposed to be good for doggies with upset tummies. He was able to keep it down, which was a relief. However, he sort of had a cough, which scared me! Monday we took him in to get his stitches out, and they said they think he has kennel cough!!!! I didn't think they could get that after having all their vaccinations, but I guess they still can! I feel so bad for him! If it doesn't get better by Friday, back to the vet we go. . . .
- I tried out the airbrushing/spray tan on Friday. I think I like it. It doesn't look fake to me at all. I can see how this could be addicting.
Here are some new goodies I brought home with me:

Kate Spade Annapolis Agnes Sweater

Tory Burch Suede Wedges

Two Questions. . .

1.) Has anyone ever done a spray tan? I want to do one before the Derby, so I am doing a test run tomorrow. I am doing an airbrush session, so someone sprays it on me rather than just standing in a booth. I know I need to exfoliate (which I did this morning), and shave beforehand. Anything else I should know? Does it look good? Oh they also told me to wear loose clothing.

2.) Should I?
